Billions of years in the future, at the time where our galaxy collides with the Andromeda galaxy, we are facing a world that stretches your imagination.
Throughout time, evolutionary contrarian principles have established themselves in the two galaxies,
now leading to a clash of intergalactic cultures as never seen before.

Inspired by Magic: The Gathering and Hearthstone, Age of Chains looks to go beyond known game dynamics to offer a truly unique and hooking gaming experience.

We already have developed the core game mechanics at play as well as 100+ complementary cards and are currently developing the digital prototype of the game.
We are implementing an ultra fast and scalable network for our players using cutting edge technology to offer the best possible gaming experience.
Our servers host a scalable network of websockets that will allow us to offer a smooth gameplay anytime, anywhere.
We put a lot of effort in our communication protocol which is being designed for low memory footprint and fast data exchange,
allowing low amount of traffic.

To kickstart the early development of Age of Chains,
we are offering you the first cards of the game.

Thank you for reaching out.

Right now we are good, but relatively soon as we are approaching our ICO, we will be in need for translations, too.

nice watching closely.

Nice to have you here, croxx. :)

could u give more info about the team of devs ?  thanks.

Sure thing, that is a great question!

We are currently a team of three:

Our technical lead developer has multiple years of experience in creating video games and a special interest for VR. I previously already have worked with him back in 2014 for a startup called Eversnap (https://www.eversnappro.com/) in Silicon Valley, where we became good friends.

Our game balance designer has a long history as an avid trading card game player and is deeply involved in the Hearthstone community. He very well understands it to create unique and lovable game mechanics.

I myself can be seen of as filling the "CEO" role if you wish. In earlier days I have created a startup that focused on helping video game developers to drive attention to their game by connecting them to video gaming focused YouTubers who would then, in a contest style, publish videos on their YouTube channel about the respective game. I passed the Founder Institute startup launch program as one of three graduates but my continuously rising passion for cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology ultimately captured all my time. I am also one of the managers of the Divvy DAO (http://divvydao.org/), where we are creating a development platform for interoperable DAOs.

Anything else you are curious about?

Another card just got sold.

Also, if you wish to participate but are for whatever reason not able to participate through the swapbot, hit me up with a direct message.

You can get up to five cards from us like that.

So if you are using a regular Bitcoin wallet without Counterparty functionality, this might help you out. Later, you can easily access your cards by importing your Bitcoin private key into the Counterwallet.

Best,

Hi, thank you for your question!

This is the beauty of the already established infrastructure within Counterparty:

You can right away after purchase start trading your card on the Counterparty decentralized exchange. I personally recommend the Indiesquare wallet (https://wallet.indiesquare.me/), but also the Counterwallet (https://counterwallet.io/) works great for this.

Here is some documentation (http://counterparty.io/docs/trade/) you can follow to get started (although using the beforementioned wallets are really user friendly and mostly self explanatory for selling your cards).

Every time I look at the bot it is out of cards. I already missed Tier 1 because I was too tired to stay up waiting for the restock. I think this would work more efficiently if you just put some orders up on the DEX at the different tiers, this way the next order would just kick in when one tier is completed.

that is a good point, too actually. If the token gets immediately delivered to the person that ordered it before the tokensale is completed there is nothing preventing people from starting to trade them on the DEX. IMHO ICOs that don´t release the tokens until after the sale is closed address this issue better.

The market is already open. You can start offering your card now on the Counterparty decentralized exchange.

Can you close market till end ICO ? And start price must be over 100$ ( If I buy token for 10$ , i can sell token for 20$ - 2x profit ...) People not buying cards on tiers 5 - they don't sell them with profit (because if people buy token for 10$ , they can sell them for 20$)

Tier 1 just sold out. A big thank you to all participants!

This introduces Tier 2: 100 cards for $15 each.

Only 190 cards are left to be brought in circulation via direct sales.

Get your Woodcoin's Guardian card now at the Age of Chains - Official Swapbot (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot).

I think this would work more efficiently if you just put some orders up on the DEX at the different tiers, this way the next order would just kick in when one tier is completed.

I am sorry that you missed it - I did my best to restock the bot whenever it was sold out - but I have to sometimes sleep a bit, too :)

If it happens again, please reach out to me via direct message. We can send a limited number of cards to individuals on a direct way. This way, you are not bound to the swapbot supply.

Please understand that we are trying our best to achieve a relatively distributed supply among a broad community, which is why we load the swapbot each time only with a limited supply.

What means tiers 2,3, etc ... If people ALREADY can buy token from market for 12$, why they will buy card for 100 $ for tier 5 ?

that is a good point, too actually. If the token gets immediately delivered to the person that ordered it before the tokensale is completed there is nothing preventing people from starting to trade them on the DEX. IMHO ICOs that don´t release the tokens until after the sale is closed address this issue better.

If people want to start selling their card now for $12 worth of XCP or BTC on the Dex, they are free to do so. There will be enough people happy to buy the cards off of them at that price and to hodl them.

Everyone may give up their card at whatever price they want. Sooner or later my personal guess is that the cards likely will start selling out at the Tier 5 price and beyond and people that have sold their cards at whatever price below will most likely regret it. The way this card sale is organized in our opinion much better creates a natural price discovery of the card than if we would lock the market up. If Tier 5 takes months to sell out, that is fine. A locked up market would not do any better in such case and in fact would leave those people that already participated out in the blue about their investment for an uncertain time.

Of course, there is no guarantee of how the price of the cards will develop and we do not make any guarantees of future price developments of the cards.

Because Counterparty does not fork every week.  :D

Just kidding. Well, Counterparty has the most advanced infrastructure and best user experience for creating and trading tokens.

Also, ETH's network is turing-complete, making it subject to the halting problem, which ultimately could lead to a breakdown of the network. Counterparty instead is chained to Bitcoin, which in itself is a turing-incomplete network.

When Age of chains will be released?

Good question. It would be great if we could release something next year, but we still have to develop the exact roadmap and how it is with roadmaps in crypto/software development, it often ends up not being accurate. The younger the project, the more difficult to predict an exact release date.

However here is what we will develop in the next weeks:

The next month will be fully dedicated to creating a solid game's base. This includes:
- Creating the game scenario (board) and the overall rules.
- Defining card attributes and values.

These steps are very important and require heavy testing and balancing in order to guarantee for a hooking game experience.

The weeks after, we will be able to:
- Create the card design.
- Do deeper work on the game mechanics, implement factions and balance them accordingly.

During all of that time we also are working on developing the lore in which the game plays.

Age of Chains

Age of Chains is a trading card based video game that plays in a futuristic world.
Inspired by Magic: The Gathering and Hearthstone, Age of Chains looks to go beyond known game dynamics to offer a truly unique and hooking gaming experience.

We are currently developing the exact game mechanics at play as well as the card design and the lore of the game.

Great question!

As Woodcoin's Guardian will have a very low drop rate for being obtained through the purchase of card packs, it is ensured that the supply of Woodcoin's Guardians will last for a longer period of time, even though the card is extremely rare.

You may think a bit of it as finding a "Black Lotus" card within a Magic: The Gathering card pack (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRxCeO2KIS8), which is a card that is worth around $30.000 and one of the rarest in the whole game with just a 1100 supply limit (Alpha version).

Many other cards will be available in much higher quantities, enabling us to scale accordingly.

Indeed. Also, the Counterparty community has been very helpful and multiple of services building on top of it already have approached us for cooperating. The already established infrastructure will certainly accelerate the overall game development. There is no other chain with such usability serving our purpose, we are very happy having decided to build on top of Counterparty.

I am hopeful that the Age of Chains will help guide us out of the age of chains to the glorious age of chains :)  

Thank you for your words, funken! We certainly aim at creating a user experience where the regular video gamer with little to no understanding of blockchain technology will be able to easily make use of the full functionality of our game.

Any news? How many cards remaining on 2 Stage?

We are currently running daily playtests for defining the core board design and game mechanics.
Also, lots of other things going on - amongst others: Planning on card pack design/implementation with drop probabilities etc, figuring out the exact lore as well as designing the next cards.

Regarding Woodcoin's Guardian:
Only 29 cards left until reaching Tier 3. :)

We are working hard on many different areas.

Soon, we will have the inital board rules done. Once that is finished, we will have an announcement diving into more details about them.

Age of Chains will definitely be unique in its game design.


On another note, we have been offered a slot for FounderX - a three months invite-only program in Silicon Valley for 50 Founder Institute Graduates with the goal of finetuning the business & pitch to ultimately raise funds from angels and VCs. However, it is still not clear whether the program right now is the best use of our time and funds, so we are carefully evaluating whether we are going to participate or not.

We would like to thank you for the huge success we have had with our first card sale so far. We raised approximately an amount of 2 BTC so far which we promise to make most efficient use of. Our second card is under development and we will post it here once it is done.

Have a great Sunday!

The game itself does not run on the blockchain. What runs on the blockchain are the tokens that represent cards within the game.

Age of Chains will read your wallet and enable whatever cards you have in your wallet to be played ingame. You need to have the blockchain based tokens representing the ingame card in order to be able to build your deck and play with the respective card.

Maybe faster make ICO on Liqui.io (http://Liqui.io)

"IOU

IOU market is about trading coins purchased by traders in the ICO and that so far have no own network. Until recently there has been no possibility to trade such tokens (no network – deposit/withdrawl doesn’t work). But Liqui team has found a solution: when a trader/investor participates in ICO indirectly but through our platform (all transaction IDs are of course provided to developers’ wallets) – we can credited the balance of the relevant coin to them once the crowdsale is over!

Therefore, trading begins hours after ICO and there’s no need to wait until coin developers release the network (which often takes months). Or you can just keep the tokens on the balance (like it happens in any ICO) and once the network has been released – witdraw them. When the network is ready – IOU flag disappears from the relevant pair and then this pair functions as an ordinary coin. "

If you set price of 1 coin 10-12 satoshi - many people buy it fast - and you will have fund for development more faster

Since I'm an avid Hearthstone player I'm intrigued to hear that your developer is into the game as well. I guess you don't really have a GUI to show off yet? Not even a placeholder / concept art? I really love the way Blizzard designed the Hearthstone board and cards. I hope that you can take what they did right and create something that is still uniquely your own.

My opinion is that Hearthstone, unlike other digital TCGs, reached such a large success not just because of the existing Warcraft fanbase, but because Blizzard was able to create a "magical" atmosphere, together with great flow and feel to the game play aspects.

Other TCGs have tried, but I feel that games like Magic the gathering, the recently released Eternal, and the Elder Scrolls TCGs all fail to accomplish what Hearthstone did: they feel stiff and boring. Hearthstone is fun and fluid.

I hope you take my words into consideration when designing the game. As an avid TCG player (and investor in the developing decentralized gaming space) I really want to see your game succeed.

Best of luck. And if you have a slack channel I'd love to join. Otherwise I'll keep checking in here from time to time. And I'll buy some Wood cards. :) I like to collect things.

No site yet - this will come soon in a minimal version as a blog with our first post.

We have to do hardcore task prioritization right now, as there are many things to work on that are more important right now.

Also thank you for your suggestion regarding IOU. Since we are launching our tokens on Counterparty, rather than creating our own blockchain, we do not need such platform. Anyone purchasing cards has immediate access to them.

Great to see someone with a similar mindset as we have. :) Hearthstone certainly has done a great job in delivering a very smooth user experience and makes it easy even for players that are new to the TCG genre to get started and have fun. We are very dedicated towards creating a gaming experience that resembles at least a similar user-friendlyness.

We soon will have a blog post elaborating on the core board rules of the game so you will be able to better grasp that our game will be truly unique.

Creating a Slack channel also is a great idea which we definitely should do soon as the community continues to grow.

Thank you for your support!

Hi!

I am sorry but if you do not find $10 per card reasonable, then this is probably not the right project for you.

Also I do not understand what you are asking in your second question. Are you referring to the ~150 different cards we are planning to have ready for the main release? It takes time. This game is a huge project and we are in the very early development stage of it right now. If you expect a game delivered to your doorsteps tomorrow morning, please move on - then this project again is not for you.

Considering the game mechanics, we will be having a blog post up soon that will elaborate on this.

Stay tuned!

Don't get so defensive. I don't expect everything to be done all at once. releasing it slowly is actually better for game balancing since that will have to be something that will need doing fairly often. Also you say that if I don't think $10 is reasonable then I must move on ? Ok well I think $10 per card can add up to alot. the cards go up to $100 even you said yourself MTG black lotus is $30 and you want up to $100.

So no as a TCG/CCG player I don't find $10 starting price reasonable especially since there still is no game. I don't know you all I have is your word. Maybe you are going to make a great game with a profitable and fun way to trade cards but I do not know that and all I was saying is that compared o most projects $10 is a high starting  off place. I wanted you to justify it not tell me to move on.

Why are the cards that price ? The game is played with only a handful of cards ? at $10 that could cost alot and it is $10-$100

All I am doing is weighing our risk to reward. It is not a personal attack on your project. I actually support it since I live TCG/CCG.

Oh and how much will a card pack cost ?

Another reason I say $10 is a lot is because I like to collect things and collecting 100 cards would cost me $1000 and that is a lot.

You have got that wrong: A Black Lotus card in MTG is not $30, it is $30.000.

The reasons for the price are all mentioned in the OP of the thread:

Development Support, Scarcity, Usefulness.

All I am doing is weighing our risk to reward. It is not a personal attack on your project. I actually support it since I live TCG/CCG.

Oh and how much will a card pack cost ?

Another reason I say $10 is a lot is because I like to collect things and collecting 100 cards would cost me $1000 and that is a lot.

Pricing of card packs is a huge topic that requires lots of through-thinking. At this stage it is not possible to give exact numbers.

One way we think of it is offering 1.000.000.000 card packs at a converted rate of around a couple of U.S. Dollars, possibly containing five cards. Chances to obtain a Woodcoin's Guardian by purchasing a card pack then would be 0,00000245% - you see now how rare this card is?

If $10 per card is too expensive for you, simply wait for the card packs to be sold. You will be able to collect more cards for less money, but it will be way more difficult to obtain rare cards that we are handing out right now for direct purchase.

PS: all numbers are still not definite and only shall demonstrate the direction in which it will go.

That said we are always open towards talented designers who think they would be a great fit for Age of Chains.

Whats up ? Any news ? tier 3 sold ?

We entered Tier 3 for Woodcoin's Guardian just a couple of days ago. The card is still available for purchase at that price level via our swapbot.

Our landing page (http://www.ageofchains.com/) is ready (Thank you, Matthew!) and if you like to be among the first to read our blog post, make sure to follow us on Medium (https://medium.com/@ageofchains).

We currently are evaluating many applications for the position as a Unity Game Developer, as my friend Ruben (planned to be the CTO) currently due to being in the end-stage of his master's program can only commit little time to the project.

Also, on a good side note, we have been accepted within the FounderX program and decided to participate. The program is mainly remote, lasts three months and is aimed at refining our business model and pitch with the main goal of securing an initial funding round. The last three days of the program will take place in Silicon Valley, consisting of networking events, workshops and formal dinners. Our aim is to raise at least $500.000 in funds which will take us a long way, hopefully even until release. If you are an angel investor, looking for an investment opportunity, feel free to reach out.

Here is part of the FounderX acceptance email:

Quote
Hello,

I have very good news. You have been selected to receive the special Graduate assistance for the FounderX advisory program. Congratulations!

We reached out to over 500 of the up-and-coming Graduates, reviewed over 100, and then selected 50 of the best. You are one. There are two next steps before we start the mentoring in January.

So things look great. We are making huge progress on the mechanic side of the game with every day, are developing the lore, design and scale our team.

To give you a little bit of an insight into the lore:

Age of Chains plays in a distant future, at the time where our galaxy collides with the Andromeda galaxy. Throughout billions of years, contrarian evolutionary concepts have established themselves throughout each galaxy, now resulting in a clash of galactical cultures.

Now a little Christmas game:

Prize: 1x Woodcoin's Guardian

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/wg.jpg

Guess which values have risen to the top in our galaxy :) How do you envision our galaxy in some billions of years? How do you envision the collision of the two galaxies?

Whoever comes closest to what we imagine for our lore will win one Woodcoin's Guardian card. The game lasts until the end of December this year, CET time.

We are looking forward to learn about your inspirative thoughts :)

Fun game. OK, here's my idea:

The evolutionary concept of our galaxy is individuation; the survival of the fittest. Genetic variants survive if they can find a niche in which they can make use of the resources of the ecosystem they are in more efficiently than competitors, then they seek to expand their territory. Dominant species, such as humanity, use economic competition to expand their individual lifespan, territory and power through technology. God-like individuals, living thousands of years, may dominate many worlds.

The evolutionary concept of the other galaxy is collectivism. Genetic variants are allowed to survive only if they are useful to the established ecosystem. Symbiosis, and its shadow parasitism, are the order of the day. Planet-wide intelligences draw together individual species in harmonious conflict free wholes, but individual freedom is non-existent. Rather than being based on the manipulation of inert matter, ‘technology’ is based on genetics and the use of highly specialised species breed especially for their task.

The clash is therefore between beings which consider a planet to be simply a resources for individuals to use, and those which consider individuals, and even whole species, to be simply a resource for planets to use.

Christmas Contest

In Age of Chains, we find ourselves in a distant future, billions of years away, at a time where our galaxy collides with the Andromeda Galaxy.
Throughout billions of years, contrarian evolutionary concepts have established themselves throughout each galaxy, now resulting in a clash of galactical cultures.

This Christmas contest dives into your imagination:
How do you envision this collision of the two galaxies?
Which values have risen to the top in our galaxy?
How do you envision our galaxy in some billions of years?
:)

To participate in the contest, simply post your descriptive elaboration of the answers to the above mentioned questions as a post
in this thread.

Whoever comes closest to what we imagine for our lore will win one Woodcoin's Guardian card (see below). The game lasts until the end of December this year, CET time.

Fun game. OK, here's my idea:

The evolutionary concept of our galaxy is individuation; the survival of the fittest. Genetic variants survive if they can find a niche in which they can make use of the resources of the ecosystem they are in more efficiently than competitors, then they seek to expand their territory. Dominant species, such as humanity, use economic competition to expand their individual lifespan, territory and power through technology. God-like individuals, living thousands of years, may dominate many worlds.

The evolutionary concept of the other galaxy is collectivism. Genetic variants are allowed to survive only if they are useful to the established ecosystem. Symbiosis, and its shadow parasitism, are the order of the day. Planet-wide intelligences draw together individual species in harmonious conflict free wholes, but individual freedom is non-existent. Rather than being based on the manipulation of inert matter, ‘technology’ is based on genetics and the use of highly specialised species breed especially for their task.

The clash is therefore between beings which consider a planet to be simply a resources for individuals to use, and those which consider individuals, and even whole species, to be simply a resource for planets to use.

Interesting thoughts, I like it! :)

I really like what I'm reading! I sense big potential for this game if it's executed well.
Will there be other ways to invest in Age of Chains? An ICO or other rare tradables released to investors pre-release?

Glad you enjoy it.

We will be giving out more rare cards throughout time helping us to secure continuous development while at the same time being a great way for our early supporters to participate and benefit.

We also plan an ICO which we would like to postpone as much as we can to make sure it will be as successful as possible. In the meantime, we are working hard towards achieving our milestone of securing an initial fundraising round of ~$500k and are looking forward to the FounderX program which is solely geared towards achieving this goal and which starts in January.

The next card will be released within the upcoming days - it represents a very powerful blockchain - guess which one :)

The pre-release term implies u dont get goodies before the release date which is when something is said to be released. Though u can negotiate with the prison staff the pre-release of a criminal which means he will be freed on parole. Freeing the thug before he has served the full sentence is not a good idea. I hope u will get fun hanging out with him.

If we will host an ICO, we will use the Counterparty protocol. As we are not developing our own blockchain I do not see any need for using Liqui.io.

What makes you desire having an ICO on Liqui.io? :)

Thank you, Boobies (great name!)!

Many people that have played Magic have articulated that our game recalls related memories - we find this a huge compliment and definitely aim to delivering you at least as much fun as you had back then playing MTG.

Looking forward to revealing the next card! :)

The cosmic signal has stabilized - we now have a clear image of the entity that seems to have gotten in touch with us for peaceful collaboration.

We are overly reverent by the capabilities that this entity seems to inherit..

We proudly present:

Card 002:
Tau the Time Traveller

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/TauBCTnova.jpg

On his path to truth (http://tauchain.org/tauchain.pdf), Tau the Time Traveller journeys the universe in timeless and interdimensional ways.

Tau the Time Traveller will be among the most powerful and rarest cards available for the game.

Only 8888 Tau the Time Traveller cards will ever exist.

The distribution of the card is organized in multiple tiers and priced as follows:

Tier 1: 222 cards for $10 each.

Tier 2: 444 cards for $15 each.

Tier 3: 111 cards for $20 each.

Tier 4: 55 cards for $50 each.

Tier 5: 11 cards for $100 each.

The other cards will not be sold directly and are going to become accessible by purchasing card packs.
The chances of receiving a Tau the Time Traveller card within a card pack will be way below 1%.

10 units will be put aside for promotional activities.

The card can be bought through the Age of Chains - Official Swapbot: Tau the Time Traveller (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-tau-the-time-traveller).

We are currently in Tier 1.

Secure yourself one of the few available Tau the Time Traveller cards now:

-----> Get a Tau the Time Traveller Card. (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-tau-the-time-traveller) <-----

To make sure that we will get the card out to a variety of people, we will load up the swapbot multiple times per tier with only with a few cards.
So if you find the swapbot being out of stock, just check back once in a while to see if it got refilled.

We wish all our supporters an amazing time travel into the new year!

May all your dreams come true.

Christmas Contest

In Age of Chains, we find ourselves in a distant future, billions of years away, at a time where our galaxy collides with the Andromeda Galaxy.
Throughout billions of years, contrarian evolutionary concepts have established themselves throughout each galaxy, now resulting in a clash of galactical cultures.

This Christmas contest dives into your imagination:
How do you envision this collision of the two galaxies?
Which values have risen to the top in our galaxy?
How do you envision our galaxy in some billions of years?
:)

To participate in the contest, simply post your descriptive elaboration of the answers to the above mentioned questions as a post
in this thread.

Whoever comes closest to what we imagine for our lore will win one Woodcoin's Guardian card (see below). The game lasts until the end of December this year, CET time.

We are looking forward to learn about your inspirative thoughts :)

Happy New Year to all and thank you for the huge support!

Tau sold so fast, we had to restock the swapbot within the first minutes - we feel honored to have such a supportive community already!

If you have not done so yet, you can get your first Age of Chains cards here:


33 cards left for Woodcoin's Guardian (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot#choose) in Tier 3.

170 cards left for Tau the Time Traveller (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-tau-the-time-traveller#choose) in Tier 1.

Deckbound is very different. Not only differ their game mechanics a lot from ours, but also are their cards algorithmically generated. We instead carefully craft the abilities of each individual card for achieving a truly unique gaming experience and well complementing card decks.

Additionally, on a technical level, they are using bitbind for creating their cards, while we are using Counterparty which in my eyes has many benefits, such as already having an established and user friendly infrastructure to easily trade your cards on the open market.

We are following agile development principles within the development of our game - while we currently fund development through the direct sale of cards, we additionally aim at raising ~$500k in funds from angel investors / venture capitalists and for that are participating in an invite-only program for graduates of the Founder Institute geared towards securing an initial fundraising round. Ultimately, we also aim at holding an ICO that will enable us to raise even more funds to achieve our goal.

I love blockchain card games.

Indeed. Granting the players true ownership over their items is something that enhances the whole gaming experience for the player.

I remember the days back in the mid 2000s when I had to add a disclaimer to my Ebay auction selling my World of Warcraft account saying something like "The only thing I am selling is the time invested, not the intellectual property behind it." Would have been great if that game's itemry would run on the blockchain to some extent - I can imagine some real economies being built around that.

Christmas Contest Results

Thank you for participating within our Christmas Contest (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1692890.msg17241251#msg17241251)!

It has been a difficult task to decide in between the three submissions which one would win the prize, as all answers have some interesting elements to them which we enjoyed reading and imagining. We appreciate all three submissions and therefore decided to reward the participation within the Christmas Contest accordingly, meaning that also place two and three are winning a prize.

However, as we still had to make a decision, we selected hatshepsut93 for winning the first prize, one Woodcoin's Guardian card, because thinking of our galaxy being mainly inhabited by species that live in peace resembles to a great extent our vision.

How do you envision this collision of the two galaxies?
At first, the upcoming collision was met with fear and uncertainty in both galaxies. The dominant civilization of Andromeda Galaxy included various inorganic life forms who were threatened by organic life forms for millions of years, until finally reaching peace and balance. But in the end, inhabitants of both galaxies managed to establish contact and begin cooperating for the common good. Collision itself proved to be devastating to millions of planets and stars, although everyone had thousands of years to prepare for it and no lives were lost. As the result of collision, many new resources were formed, which boosted technology and science in both civilizations. One of the planets, previously unexplored due to it's hidden location, was now revealed, and its first explorers found a very strange and cryptic message...

Which values have risen to the top in our galaxy?
After millions of years of progress and exploration, humans and other species of our galaxy came to understanding that peace is a prime value. For the majority of the time before the collision, there were no wars in our galaxy and all races lived in mutually beneficial cooperation. Still, they understood that not everyone in the Universe could share their views and there are armories full of deadly weapons, lying deep beneath the surface of some planets. Intelligence became the most important personal trait while beauty and wealth are viewed as secondary.

How do you envision our galaxy in some billions of years?
97% of planets in our galaxy will be populated and there will be thousands of sapient species. Some of them will be colonists from other galaxies, others are much more older than humanity. There will be all kinds of advanced technology like AI, cybernetics, genetic modification, Dyson spheres, faster than light traveling, etc. One of the notable examples of such technologies are enormous living star ships and even artificial living planets. As for politics, the government became a thing of a long past history, because everyone understand their responsibilities and cooperate on a fair and voluntary basis.  

Congratulations, hatshepsut93!

Second place goes to Cryptorials:

Fun game. OK, here's my idea:

The evolutionary concept of our galaxy is individuation; the survival of the fittest. Genetic variants survive if they can find a niche in which they can make use of the resources of the ecosystem they are in more efficiently than competitors, then they seek to expand their territory. Dominant species, such as humanity, use economic competition to expand their individual lifespan, territory and power through technology. God-like individuals, living thousands of years, may dominate many worlds.

The evolutionary concept of the other galaxy is collectivism. Genetic variants are allowed to survive only if they are useful to the established ecosystem. Symbiosis, and its shadow parasitism, are the order of the day. Planet-wide intelligences draw together individual species in harmonious conflict free wholes, but individual freedom is non-existent. Rather than being based on the manipulation of inert matter, ‘technology’ is based on genetics and the use of highly specialised species breed especially for their task.

The clash is therefore between beings which consider a planet to be simply a resources for individuals to use, and those which consider individuals, and even whole species, to be simply a resource for planets to use.


Describing your vision of the two contrarian evolutionary principles in both galaxies was fun to read. Also, as we can already see especially with Tau the Time Traveller, your idea that insanely powerful individuals would exist certainly is true.

You may choose whether you would like to have either one Tau the Time Traveller card or one exemplar of the next card.

Congratulations, Cryptorials!

Third place goes to GreenBits:

How do you envision this collision of the two galaxies?

The collision of this two galaxies (the Andromeda Galaxy and our own Galaxy) that will happen 4 billion years from now on(based on theory).With this collision it can collide our galaxy stars and the Andromeda Galaxy stars , because of the different gases of the two galaxies it can make new stars or even a new planet, and lastly, the Andromeda Galaxy have a trillion stars than our galaxy that have only a billion stars and because of the spaces of our galaxy, the Andromeda Galaxy stars and planets of it will fill the spaces of our galaxy or it will merge the planet and stars to make a new stars and planets.

Which values have risen to the top of our galaxy?

In the top of our galaxy, it have a creatures that have a high intelligence than ours, and they living with a high end technolgy.With the help of thier technology they exploring our galaxy to find new habitable places for their race, and they still finding a new life form.If they find a new races they make tournament between their race and the newly find race to knows whos the strongest of all.

How do you envision our galaxy in some billions of years

In billions years from now on,due the collision of the two galaxies some of other races and our races that survive they decide to make a agreement to make peace and to help each other like sharing their technology to others that they lack of it and they decided to interact each other by visiting their own planet.But it have some races that they want war and colonize other planets.

You also had the thought of peace for our galaxy which is great - unfortunately hatshepsut93 was a bit faster with this thought. :) Also the thoughts on new planets and stars being created upon the collision is nice.

You will receive either one Tau the Time Traveller or the third card, depending on how Cryptorials chooses.

Congratulations, GreenBits!


Please send me your address so I can send you your prizes.  :)

Looking forward to the next contest - if you have any ideas for what you would like it to be about, we are happy to hear from you.

Thank you for confirming! :) Glad that you like it!

A huge thank you to all who supported us throughout recent times with further card purchases - you are amazing!

There are just 14 cards left for Woodcoin's Guardian (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot#choose) in Tier 3 at $20 per card - after that we jump to $50 per card.


Cool ! Looking forward to that blog.

Glad to hear! I have been very busy with a magnitude of very relevant things, such as refining our pitch deck for presenting to investors within the next months.

The FounderX program is challenging but already proves to be well worth it - we are working together in small groups of founders in a similar situation providing each other with progressful feedback.

Am looking to get the second blog post up asap - meanwhile, here is our current team deck slide for you - it has been challenging to find the best people capable to deliver upon this amazing project:

We just posted our most recent blog post diving deeper into the lore wherein Age of Chains plays:

Blog Post Nr. 2 - Read Here:

----> Age of Chains - Decentralizing our Galaxy (https://medium.com/@ageofchains/age-of-chains-decentralizing-our-galaxy-e6a6f631f15e#.c81qz5n9c) <----

Quote
...While first being perceived only as a mystery by the greater majority of the world’s population due to its abstract design, it did not take long that due to its superior design as compared to the legacy world, more and more people were grasping the inherent potential within this new form of technology enabling us to bring the structural changes within our societies that had been needed in order to survive...

Hope you enjoy it! What are your thoughts?

The next blog diving deeper into our development progress is soon to come.

Meanwhile, Woodcoin's Guardian (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot) sold out in Tier 3 - a card now costs $50. We thank all of our supportes once again as you make the development on this amazing project possible.

Tau the Time Traveller (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-tau-the-time-traveller) is still available in Tier 1 for $10 per card. If you have not yet gotten yourself one, you still can do so.

Again, we only sell a small amount of each card directly - the rest of the supply will be made available through the purchase of card packs. The cards we are offering now are among the rarest and most powerful within the game and will have a very low drop rate within the card packs.

If you believe in us this is a great way to support our work while at the same time giving you the possibility to secure yourself some of the strongest playable cards.

Galactical Hugs!

Hey!

Yes I have noticed that and talked to the Tokenly team - sorry for the delay. It seems to be in connection with the Mempool flooding that was taking place within the Bitcoin network (http://bitcointicker.co/networkstats/ (http://bitcointicker.co/networkstats/)) which delayed many transactions within the last two days. Also, the standard tx fee of the swapbots were relatively low (0.0001 BTC) which added to the effect. The mempool has stabilized now so I expect the txs to go through relatively soon. I also have adjusted the tx fee to 0.0003 BTC for the swapbots to make sure that future txs go through much quicker even in times when the mempool is overloaded.

I will make sure that you get your cards.

Best,
m4nki

Both swapbots are loaded. Have you tried refreshing?

Current status is the following:

Only 10 Woodcoin's Guardian (http://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot) cards left at Tier 5 - after that you can only get them on the open market or upon game release with a huge amount of luck through card packs.

Tau the Time Traveller (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-tau-the-time-traveller#choose) is still in Tier 1 with 34 cards left. After that we go to Tier 2.

permission to try :)

What? :)

very interesting project and really good job on the cards.
keep up the good work here devs and ceo.

Thank you, croxx!

The decipherment of the message from outer space has been successful.

We proudly present:

Card 003:
L'ourn, Hidden Defender of Monero

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/monerobctbig.jpg

Residing on a hidden planet (https://monerobase.com/images/d/d0/CryptonoteWhitepaper.pdf) in the outer spiral arms of our galaxy, L'ourn wakefully defends the Monero Worldbridge from any potential threat.

L'ourn, Hidden Defender of Monero will be among the most powerful and rarest cards available for the game.

Only 33333 L'ourn, Hidden Defender of Monero cards will ever exist.

The distribution of the card is organized in multiple tiers and priced as follows:

Tier 1: 111 cards for $10 each. - Sold out.

Tier 2: 444 cards for $15 each.

Tier 3: 222 cards for $20 each.

Tier 4: 55 cards for $50 each.

Tier 5: 11 cards for $100 each.

The other cards will not be sold directly and are going to become accessible by purchasing card packs.
The chances of receiving a L'ourn, Hidden Defender of Monero card within a regular card pack will be way below 1%.

10 units will be put aside for promotional activities.

10 units will be distributed among the Age of Chains team.

The card can be bought through the Age of Chains - Official Swapbot: L'ourn, Hidden Defender of Monero (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-lourn-defender-monero#choose).

We are currently in Tier 2.

Secure yourself one of the few available L'ourn, Hidden Defender of Monero cards now:

-----> Get L'ourn, Hidden Defender of Monero. (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-lourn-defender-monero#choose) <-----

To make sure that we will get the card out to a variety of people, we will load up the swapbot multiple times per tier with only with a few cards.
So if you find the swapbot being out of stock, just check back once in a while to see if it got refilled.

Thank you for the amazing support, everyone!

Current card sale status:

Woodcoin's Guardian: 7 cards left (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot#choose) in Tier 5.

Tau the Time Traveller: 438 cards left (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-tau-the-time-traveller#choose) in Tier 2.

L'ourn, Hidden Defender of Monero: 365 cards left (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-lourn-defender-monero#choose) in Tier 2.

The accelerator is about to enter the second phase. We are currently working on an overhaul of the pitchdeck and have already put lots of work into it. In my eyes, it looks good but does not seem yet to satisfy the accelerator's program leader. We got a deadline due to Monday to significantly improve the pitchdeck or we will drop out of the program. If that would be the case, we would continue our path as before and still move on reaching out to investors for securing an initial fundraising round. The traction we have achieved so far due to your support has proven that what we are looking to achieve has gigantic potential.

Our revenue so far looks as follows:

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/Traction.JPG

Continuing our card release and development progress, we are confident that even if we would not secure outside funding, we will achieve our goal of coming out with a revolutionary game to be known among the world. So far, you have been helping us a lot for realizing this vision - thank you!

I have hired a designer for drafting out a preliminary version of our game board and I am looking forward to sharing it with you in the upcoming days.

We will soon start inviting our community to join our Slack. Please pm me your email address if you would like to join.

Best,

Accelerator Phase 2: Investor Targeting

We successfully passed the first phase of the accelerator program and are now entering the investor targeting phase.

If you happen to know an investor looking to possibly get involved with Age of Chains, we welcome you to reach out to us.
As part of the program, we are looking to get to ten investor introductions by Monday next week. As mentioned before, our goal is to raise the funds (~ $800.000) from angel investors as a seed round within the duration of this program, which will end in April/May. We hope to be done as soon as possible with the fundraising process.

Community Survey

Better understanding who you are will strengthen our position in front of angel investors and increase our chances to successfully secure the initial seed round
that we currently are looking to close in order to being able to deliver you an amazing game within a relatively short time frame.

Therefore we are grateful for anyone within our community filling in this anonymous survey - thank you!

Technical Prototype

We already have developed the game mechanics and cards to an extent where we are able to playtest the game. Currently we are setting up everything for an initial technical prototype that enables us multiplayer functionality (1on1) to bring further playtesting to the next level. We will build a team of playtesters to kickstart our feedback loop and constantly improve the game balancing & mechanics until release. This way we ensure to build a game that people love.

Thanks everyone!

We definitely will make the prototype accessible to a selection of community members as we know how valuable your feedback is. Great to know that you already playtested comparable games before! I will dive deeper into it once the time has come.

To get a first glimpse about our game board across, I share with you here a first sketch:

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/gameboardbtc.jpg

Note that this is just a first draft that we use in our pitchdeck. The card layout and everything related to the board will look very different and much more advanced within the game. Also note that our current plans for deck-building are that a deck will consist of 40 cards including one commander card. Commander cards are very powerful cards. Upon start of the match, you will automatically already hold the commander in your hand so you can count on having it ready to play when you need it. All three cards released so far are commander cards.

As said, this is just an initial mockup to give angel investors that have no idea about trading card based video games a first impression of the game. It is not at all how the game will look like upon release.

Well, duh. It's not even in alpha yet. Nobody is supposed to like these graphics, it's just a mockup (google it if you don't understand the game design process).

Thanks for sharing, dev. It's always a risky move to show these early development screenshots since not everyone understands the concept of sketches/mockups and how much they differ from a final product.

On to the picture itself.. my first thought was "what's with the 3 separate parts of the board with different planets?"
Care to explain a little more? I'm curious.

Hey kwest, great question!

As a player, you will be in the position of defending three individual territories, herein represented by the individual planets. Whoever manages to first destroy two out of three territories of the opponent, wins the match. When having a match, you have to carefully decide which of the three territories you backup with troops.

As a nice customization aspect, the territories will vary in environment depending on which planet they represent and you as a player will be able to change your particular territory pregame by owning certain cards representing the respective territories.

---

Also, thank you for the amazing buy support! There is currently just one Woodcoin's Guardian card left at Tier 5 that I will transfer to the swapbot at a random time within this month so if you want to secure yourself the last Guardiancard, make sure to stop by its swapbot once in a while. After that, our first card's direct purchases will be sold out - you will only be able to buy it on the open market or get it by chance through the purchase of card packs upon game release.

Two signals are reaching us from outer space, coming from different directions.

One of these messages is electrically charged and caused our message decrypting expert to collapse when the signal reached his machine to which he was connected to via headphones:

The other transmission seems to be coming from all directions, no matter where we point our radio telescopes to.
It somewhat seems to be an omnipresent message that we have found here:

A decipherment of these two messages is to be expected within the next 48 hours.

Maybe you already have an idea?

Development Update 02

We just published our second development update for you to read here (https://medium.com/@ageofchains/development-update-02-83899d8fa20b).

----

Furthermore, we successfully deciphered the messages that reached us and proudly present:

Card 004:
Electrum, Home of Eleg

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/004bctbig.jpg

Being a modified sun with a relentless source of electrical energy, Electrum has been serving as an interstellar center (https://electrum.org/#home) for charging any vehicle,
device and organism that drafts electricity as a resource for reaching faster than light travel.

Electrum, Home of Eleg will be among the most powerful cards available for the game.

Only 111.111 Electrum, Home of Eleg cards will ever exist.

The distribution of the card is organized in multiple tiers and priced as follows:

Tier 1: 222 cards for $5 each.

Tier 2: 888 cards for $7.5 each.

Tier 3: 666 cards for $10 each.

Tier 4: 88 cards for $25 each.

Tier 5: 22 cards for $50 each.

Minimum purchase amount is two cards.

The other cards will not be sold directly and are going to become accessible by purchasing card packs.
The chances of receiving a Electrum, Home of Eleg card within a regular card pack will be way below 1%.

100 units will be put aside for promotional activities.

10 units will be distributed among the Age of Chains team.

The card can be bought through the Age of Chains - Official Swapbot: Electrum, Home of Eleg (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-electrum-home-of-eleg#choose).

Secure yourself one of the few available Electrum, Home of Eleg cards now:

Card 005:
Galaxyboard

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/005bctbig.jpg

The Galaxyboard will immerse you within an intergalactic battlefield, surrounded by a variety of galaxies floating across our universe.

The Galaxyboard is a rare cosmetic used for enabling a unique customization of the game board.

Only 4.444 Galaxyboard cards will ever exist.

The distribution of the card is organized in multiple tiers and priced as follows:

Tier 1: 111 cards for $10 each.

Tier 2: 333 cards for $15 each.

Tier 3: 222 cards for $20 each.

Tier 4: 55 cards for $50 each.

Tier 5: 11 cards for $100 each.

The other cards will not be sold directly and are going to become accessible by purchasing card packs.
The chances of receiving a Galaxyboard card within a regular card pack will be way below 1%.

10 units will be put aside for promotional activities.

10 units will be distributed among the Age of Chains team.

The card can be bought through the Age of Chains - Official Swapbot: Galaxyboard (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-galaxyboard#choose).

Secure yourself one of the few available Galaxyboard cards now:

-----> Get the Galaxyboard. (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-galaxyboard#choose) <-----


To make sure that we will get the card out to a variety of people, we will load up the swapbots multiple times per tier with only with a few cards.
So if you find the swapbots being out of stock, just check back once in a while to see if it got refilled.

Yes, we plan to have an ICO before the release of the game.

On a side note, there are just two Woodcoin's Guardian cards left before they are sold out.

I saw the Guardian card recently sold for 27 xcp on the counterparty Dex. Therw may be a few there. If there are none I can put 1 or 2 on the Dex.

What was the error?

If you do an ICO, I hope you will burn all the tokens after redemption of ranks/ICO assets or whatever benefits.  I would hate to see another shitcoin being used for game assets.  I have to say that the way you have done it so far is excellent by only accepting BTC or XCP for selling your cards.

Just pleading to the devs: pleaase don't allow for mega-super-ultra face smorc decks like Hearthstone. Yes, like I've said earlier in this thread: I do love HS. But that is the one thing I really don't like. I want all decks to be at least somewhat thoughtful and well paced, not mindless "go face" until your opponent dies on turn 4 because he has nothing to contest you with.

Thanks for all the posts, guys - great to see some action going on in here!

Also another big thanks to the supporters that have been buying cards in the recent days - we now are in Tier 2 for all cards except for Woodcoin's Guardian where two cards in Tier 5 are left before being sold out! :)

If you do an ICO, I hope you will burn all the tokens after redemption of ranks/ICO assets or whatever benefits.  I would hate to see another shitcoin being used for game assets.  I have to say that the way you have done it so far is excellent by only accepting BTC or XCP for selling your cards.

We are evaluating all options considering the ICO. I already have something in mind but that would not include burning the tokens such as BitCrystals is doing but rather serve creating a direct flow of fiat money into our network.

bounty for german translation?

We already have done a German translation (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1694828) of the initial OP but did not receive much traction on it - our core thread is this one.

Just pleading to the devs: pleaase don't allow for mega-super-ultra face smorc decks like Hearthstone. Yes, like I've said earlier in this thread: I do love HS. But that is the one thing I really don't like.

(PS: new account since my original got hacked)

Thanks for this feedback, we indeed put lots of thoughts into deck creation to avoid the problem you mentioned. I will also forward your feedback to our game designer and am looking forward to having you participate in our playtesting phase in case you are interested, so you can try it yourself and have some influence on the game design. :)

As the info shows, the project may have hundreds of cards eventually.

So, my question is :

  Are all these cards tradeable ? and how to realize such a big list of trading items ? I mean it would not be practical to hope any exchange to lisk the whole pack of cards .

Would there be an essential asset or card acting as the currency inside the system?

thanks.

As the info shows, the project may have hundreds of cards eventually.

My assumption, based on the information provided at the Tau Swapbot (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-tau-the-time-traveller#choose (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-tau-the-time-traveller#choose)) is that there could be hundreds of thousands of individual cards, possibly a million in total. The webpage states that the chances are way below 1% that Tau would be found in a deck pack. I take that to mean that, if there are 8000 Tau cards that would mean the total number of cards would be way more than 800,000. I could be misconstruing 'chance' or variables like the size of the deck pack, possible plans to destroy/burn cards, etc. Lots of variables could impact the final numbers.

I'm wondering about the price of cards as well. How will the price of card packs be determined and will the $100.00 price be the average minimum for all future cards in that line (i.e., Tau) or will the average minimum be higher?

Quote
 Are all these cards tradeable ? and how to realize such a big list of trading items ? I mean it would not be practical to hope any exchange to lisk the whole pack of cards .

All of the cards sold so far are tradeable. I doubt that will change. Even the deck board is tradeable. They are Counterparty tokens which, once you own, you can trade, loose, destroy, or use.

Quote
 how to realize such a big list of trading items ? I mean it would not be practical to hope any exchange to lisk the whole pack of cards .

It does not need to be an 'altcoin exchange' that lists the cards. Spells of Genesis cards are not on exchanges. The exception is the Counterparty DEX where SoG and AoC cards (and other game tokens) are both being traded at present. I would say that an important aspect of the 'tradeablity' is being able to trade one specific card for another specific card. It can be done with the DEX (maybe with IndieSquare wallet now?) but the experience is not so user friendly. The AoC team could fork IndieSquare or develop their own wallet.

Good question. I'm guessing that it will be released with the 'ICO'.

We aim at having around 200 non cosmetic cards at release for creating a diverse deck building and playing experience. Not all but many of the cards will be blockchain based.
I would love to create a supply of cards that grants us creating 100 million regular card packs, each holding five cards. The rarer a card, the lower the probability of obtaining the card through the purchase of a card pack. Feel free to calculate the drop probabilities of our exisisting cards in such card packs taking the above mentioned numbers but be aware that numbers are not final yet and still may change. However, this already demonstrates the direction in which we aim to head.

The price of card packs still is being evaluated as it is not an easy task at this stage of development. One of the factors influencing this are Bitcoin network related transaction costs that might increase further up until release depending on the increase of Bitcoin's popularity. Transaction costs also might decrease, assuming segregated witness and lightning network are being implemented. Another factor is the decision of how many cards actually are going to be in a card pack as well as implementing different types of card packs with different pricing.

While many of our cards are going to be tradeable, we also want to make the game attractive for Free-to-Play players to bring in a huge number of additional players. As mentioned above, this means there will be some cards that are no tokens that can be earned ingame.

Exactly right: We do not necessarily need an extra exchange for our cards as the Counterparty Dex as well as other apps such as Book of Orbs (where we are looking to get listed on in the future) work great for that. We also aim at creating a possibility to trade your cards within our game to remove additional effort from the player and give him the full experience within our environment.

Any news?

Work in progress on all fronts. :)

Things we are working on at the moment are among others:

  • Internal Playtesting:
    Last weekend I was meeting up with our game developer and we had some extensive playtesting sessions with our physical prototype. Playing has been lots of fun, we learned more about the game mechanics and had some interesting thoughts on further game mechanic implementations to make the gameplay even more fun.
  • Development of Digital Prototype:
    We are working hard on getting our Digital Prototype out asap to get into intense playtesting. We love feedback and want a good variety of great playtesters for nurturing and harvesting a great amount of feedback that we can improve the overall game upon.
  • Card & Character Planning & Creation:
    As ever since the inception of this project, we are working hard on creating characters and cards that suit our lore and are epicly pleasant to look at.
  • Securing Seed Round Funding:
    I have been committing lots of time to reach out to angel investors and handle communication with them. We have several meetings with investors coming up and my aim is to further intensify and accelerate this process. The related FounderX program that we are participating in hands us weekly tasks that serve as an extra help and push in achieving our goals. Tomorrow we will have office hours with Adeo Ressi, the founder of the program.
  • Scaling the Team:
    We are constantly reaching out to new talent to get involved with us and have some very promising candidates to join our team. These include another game developer as well as a storyteller, concept designer and a web developer. We also scaled our team on the illustrative side and now have three amazing illustrators that we are looking to work with for getting amazing cards into your hands.

Let me know if you have more questions! :)

We have several meetings with investors coming up and my aim is to further intensify and accelerate this process. The related FounderX program that we are participating in hands us weekly tasks that serve as an extra help and push in achieving our goals. Tomorrow we will have office hours with Adeo Ressi, the founder of fthe program.
  • Scaling the Team:
    We are constantly reaching out to new talent to get involved with us and have some very promising candidates to join our team. These include another game developer as well as a storyteller, concept designer and a web developer. We also scaled our team on the illustrative side and now have three amazing illustrators that we are looking to work with for getting amazing cards into your hands.

Let me know if you have more questions! :)

Really nice to hear all that, sounds like a solid plan  :)

I've been following this project since the announcement, and as a hardcore fan of TCG's, it really interests me. If at some point you will be inviting more people for testing, I'd be glad to participate and leave my feedback.

Any news?

Work in progress on all fronts. :)

Things we are working on at the moment are among others:

  • Internal Playtesting:
    Last weekend I was meeting up with our game developer and we had some extensive playtesting sessions with our physical prototype. Playing has been lots of fun, we learned more about the game mechanics and had some interesting thoughts on further game mechanic implementations to make the gameplay even more fun.
  • Development of Digital Prototype:
    We are working hard on getting our Digital Prototype out asap to get into intense playtesting. We love feedback want a good variety of great playtesters for nurturing and harvesting a great amount of feedback that we can improve the overall game upon.
  • Card & Character Planning & Creation:
    As ever since the inception of this project, we are working hard on creating characters and cards that suit our lore and are epicly pleasant to look at.
  • Securing Seed Round Funding:
    I have been committing lots of time to reach out to angel investors and handle communication with them. We have several meetings with investors coming up and my aim is to further intensify and accelerate this process.

Awesome!
It's a really wonderful project.
I will continue to wait for expectation.

Good luck!

Thanks a lot, guys! And yes, hatshepsut93 - looking forward to getting you involved for the playtesting!

I also started inviting our community to our Slack, so if you would like an invite, please reach out to me with your email address.

Besides, there are many things going on: After building my investor network, I recently started a more massive outreach and am receiving a relatively high level of interest (I imagined it to be more difficult to get to directly talk to investors). Currently we are looking for a lead investor to join our seed round - the rest should be easy but of course there is no guarantee yet that we will close this round although I have quite a good feeling about it.

On a different note, we will soon come out with a special card deal. I do not want to give away more information yet but it certainly will be interesting. The funds we receive through that will provide us with very strong traction related arguments in front of investors while also providing you a great opportunity to purchase a rare card at quite an affordable price.

The funds received through that sale will provide us with lots of capabilities to push this project forward.

I do not want to give away too much, yet but besides creating the game itself, we want to ensure a great user experience for card owners to hold, view and trade their cards. We want to create an amazing user experience - not only solely digital, but actually closing the bridge from the physical to the digital realm as seamless as possible for the user.

Again, if you would like to join our Slack, please reach out to me with your email address.

Best,
m4nki

Incoming Signal

We are receiving a message from a solar system within our galaxy. Our decryption experts are in the process of deciphering the image that is being sent to us through these signals.
The data we have decoded so far grants us a first glimpse of the final image:

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/meteorateaser.png

We expect to have the image fully decoded within the next 24 hours.

Stay tuned! :)

Signal Stabilization

The decipherment of the galactic signal has been successful. Besides the illustration,
the signal also contained a written message (https://medium.com/@ageofchains/meteora-planet-of-the-floating-lands-7fa374e70b84) containing more data about the illustrated exoplanet.

We proudly present:

Card 006:
Meteora Board

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/006bct.jpg

Meteora Board will grant you the possibility to change your Age of Chains game board into a planetary environment like the one we encounter on Meteora,
a planet in the depths of our galaxy. Find out more about the history of Meteora (https://medium.com/@ageofchains/meteora-planet-of-the-floating-lands-7fa374e70b84).

The Meteora Board is a rare cosmetic used for enabling a unique customization of the game board.

Only 111.111 Meteora Board cards will ever exist.

The distribution of the card is organized as follows:

1000 cards for $5 each.

Minimum purchase amount is two cards.

The other cards will not be sold directly and are going to become accessible by purchasing card packs.
The chances of receiving a Meteora Board card within a regular card pack will be way below 1%.

500 units will be put aside for promotional activities.

200 units will be distributed among the Age of Chains team.

The card can be bought through the Age of Chains - Official Swapbot: Meteora Board (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-meteora#choose).

Secure yourself one of the few available Meteora Board cards now:

-----> Get a Meteora Board. (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-meteora#choose) <-----


To make sure that we will get the card out to a variety of people, we will load up the swapbots multiple times per tier with only with a few cards.
So if you find the swapbots being out of stock, just check back once in a while to see if it got refilled.

It is only because of you that we are able to work together on this full-time. I cannot say that often enough. :)

Great card, iam curious to see the end product. This game will be the first of its kind, thats a beginning story like we see it already in similar projects.  


Thanks a lot for the positive feedback!

We are working hard on all sides to progress on our vision.

Throughout numerous physical playtesting sessions within the team we further improved the core of our game up to a degree that everybody is extremely excited to get the digital prototype out for intense playtesting.

We have revamped the concept and replaced the initial idea where we were thinking of three territories for each player with something else that is a lot of fun to play - plus we have come up with a very cool way for the player to generate resources throughout the match. :)

The development of the digital prototype is ongoing and we just found some more help on the backend. Generally speaking, I am overwhelmed by the amazing support that you as a community and everybody I talk to is providing us. By now we already have around 10+ people being to some degree involved in the realization of this project and I am truly thankful for that. The scaling of the team combined with a drop in card sales last month also was the reason why I increased the amount of cards to be distributed among the team - there are so many people aiding to make this project a success and the cards allocated for the team are being wisely used as a minimal compensation for the work that these people put into the project.

In the meantime, check out some of the physical prototypes that we used for playtesting (see collage below). In the left of the right image you see the first black and white version at a price of approximately $3 for the whole prototype (I guess you can call that lean ;)). The colored one was a bit more expensive but definitely worth it. Feels great to be testing our own game - I hope I do not become too addicted once we have the technical prototype out. :)

It might have been a lucky accident for you :)

Anyhow, if you really want to sell them, you might want to check #woodcoin in the freenode IRC: https://webchat.freenode.net/ or in the Woodcoin Bitcointalk-Thread (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=831003.640;topicseen).

---

If you would like to support this project, feel free to buy some of the cards that are listed in the OP of this thread (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1692890).

There are only 2 Woodcoin's Guardian cards left at $100 and all other cards are still in Tier 2 for $15. The drop probabilities of these cards in regular card packs once we come to the release are going to be extremely low.

Have a good one, everyone!

Best,
m4nki

Would there be an essential asset or card acting as the currency inside the system?

Good question. I'm guessing that it will be released with the 'ICO'.

I would love to have a token related to our lore acting as the main medium of exchange within the game. A potential ICO would introduce it to us.

Using a token or card as "money" inside the game would be great.  But I hope that we could avoid creating another shitcoin among so many others (BCY, NXC, Databits) to purchase game assets from outside the system.  XCP could be used within the Book of Orbs/dex, and BTC could be used outside the dex. ICO tokens could be burned after redemption of ranks.  The real value should solely be based on game assets.  Having a shitcoin representing the game could dilute the game assets that it is supposed to represent and adds complexity to the pricing.

Another lesson to learn from SOG is that ranks should be represented by a set of game cards/assets.  This would make the ranks transferable, make the cards more valuable for its dual purpose, and would solve the problem that SOG has where partners loose interest over time and stop trading/buying cards.  It is like a village with only one bakery.  If the owner of the bakery shuts down the bakery with no possibility of take over, the villagers are left without a bakery.

Hey, thanks for your comment. What do you mean by "ranks"? Most likely we will not have ranks in the sense as that you get special benefits in terms of exclusivity in purchase rights. We strongly believe that everyone should have the same possibilities of purchasing the cards, rather then first making them exclusively accessible to a very narrow circle of people.

Special Signal

For the last days, our devices have been receiving a strong signal from within the inner circle of our galaxy.
The entity causing the emission of this message must be very powerful.

It appears to be quite different compared to the other signals that have reached us in the past and we
are working hard on decrypting the message in order to reveal the full meaning behind it to you.

We should have it ready for you within the next 30 hours and can already give you a first glimpse of it:

Feeling the presence of an intergalactic change,
Myriad (https://medium.com/@ageofchains/awakening-of-myriad-9d43da68b546) awakes from a million year long meditative sleep to go on his new quest for protecting the harmonic state of our galaxy.

I completely agree with you on that one.  So no ranks would solve the problem that SOG currently has where higher ranking members stop contributing in game asset retail.

Makes me want a real physical collector's copy of some of the cards. :) You could use the NEM Apostille (notarization) service to prove that the card is the original and not a forged copy. Just a thought.

Anyway, looking forward to the game. Can't wait.

Very interesting project, great artwork. I never realised such a project existed, funny I never saw this ANN thread. From loyal collectors alone you guarantee the long-term lifespan of this alt. Alas, I have so little time to play or I would dive right in!

Thank you for this compliment, buwaytress and welcome to the community!

I follow this project ,it seem like DTB

Welcome redhero, good to have you here!

Where can i find more information about the token? Is there an ICO or mining?

The card graphics look really sleek keep it up dev! Can't wait to try the game.. when is the ETA for launch?

There is no typical "ICO" right now but you already can secure yourself some of the rarest cards of the game. They are linked in the OP. The cards are tokens based on the Counterparty protocol.

Seems like "Woodcoin's Guardians" sold out!

https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot#choose

Congratulations,  Keep up!

Yes - thank you, randombit! This is a major achievement and we are very thankful for it. We started offering Woodcoin's Guardian end of November and it took less than 5 months to reach this milestone. Congratulations to everyone who took the initiative to secure himself one of these very rare pieces. Everyone else: You can try your luck finding an offer for a Woodcoin's Guardian on the Counterparty Dex - or try to find him by purchasing card packs when the game is released.

Wow, the Myriad art is gorgeous. Compliments to the artist.
Makes me want a real physical collector's copy of some of the cards. :) You could use the NEM Apostille (notarization) service to prove that the card is the original and not a forged copy. Just a thought.

Anyway, looking forward to the game. Can't wait.

Thank you, kwest1! :)

Thank you for the suggestion! We are indeed currently exploring ways for physical manifestations of cards and already are in conversation with a great partner to realize this endeavour on a certain level.

Meanwhile, development is of course ongoing and everything is progressing in the right direction. Patrick, a great mind in the crypto space has joined the team as a Community Developer and will soon launch an interesting contest in this thread that will be quite cool to participate in. Also, next week, we are going to onboard an additional team member for the front-end.

Additionally, next month, there is another nice thing happening that we will be glad to announce. :)

Stay tuned!

What about a pre-ico whitelisting those xcp-addresses, who bought mini-ico cards like Augmentors did for SoG early supporters?

Thanks for the interesting input.
I do not exactly know what you mean by whitelisting? Not sure how Augmentors did it - would be happy to learn.

We are speaking to them and certainly SoG was the pioneering game showing everyone the possibilities that blockchain based trading cards can bring to the video gaming industry. Our game will be quite different from SoG though.

At the tokenly swapbots you can put xcp-addresses on a whitelist e.g. " https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/spellsofgenesis/partner-merchant#choose "  "note swaps are only allowed from..."

Augmentors whitelisted all early SoG supporters in their pre-sale and additionally they cooperated with SoG offering a precious cross asset card (GENOFLIGHT) playable in both games which is a great way of getting more attention and synergetic effects.

"Genesis of Light is a one time offer that is only obtainable during this Pre-Sale. This is exclusive to those who have been with Spells of Genesis from the very beginning, i.e. all the BitCrystals Token Sale backers identified by their wallet addresses that have been White-Listed for the swapbot."

If you like to get your hands on some of our existing cards, I recommend doing so now. There will likely be an increased demand for them with the upcoming news.

Thanks for explaining - So whitelisting happened there to give special access to a certain swapbot and it's offers? I see - yes, that is an interesting way of rewarding certain groups. We also will have interesting rewards that we are still planning out, both for existing supporters as well as for attracting new ones.

Yes but when will it be out ? I see lots of selling of cards and bitcoins being traded but no game. I think I will wait till then game is in beta or something. By then I probably will regret not buying some cards now. They expensive now so the price they must fetch in a few months or when the game is out must be crazy.

The cards price is dollar based.  That means you will be paying less if you hold on your bitcoins and purchase at a later date when bitcoin reaches $10,000

I want to be very careful with coming out with an official release date of the game at this stage of development to make sure that we deliver on our promises. Developing our game takes time and I want to be clear about that. There are too many unknowns to phrase out a release date so instead of raising false expectations I want to be clear that we are working on it with a "it is done when it is done" mentality, meaning that we want to make sure that the game we come out with meets our expectations in quality, rather than just coming out with anything just to meet some arbitrary timeline. I want to build something epic and epicness takes time. :)

The cards price is dollar based.  That means you will be paying less if you hold on your bitcoins and purchase at a later date when bitcoin reaches $10,000

That is true. At the same time, by waiting too long you might end up in a situation where the current cards are sold out (for direct sale). So it is up to everyone individually of when he thinks it is a good time to buy. Due to customer feedback, we will also disconnect the pricing of the next cards from the Dollar to reward early adopters for purchasing our cards.

New Signals


1. Book of Orbs Listing

We are proud to announce that our cards have been listed on Book of Orbs (https://bookoforbs.com), a trading card focused wallet app that lets you easily own and trade your Age of Chains cards:

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/boo.jpg

Experience the great Book of Orbs by yourself, now available for iOS (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-book-of-orbs/id1151323826?mt=8) and Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=inc.indiesquare.orbbook).


Card Release
We proudly present:

Card 008:
Starjumper, Qora's Hope

Facing a threat from outer space, the Qoraians call Starjumper for help:

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/008bct.jpg

Quote
Within just some seconds, the signal reached Starjumper, Qora’s most advanced ship that has been exploring space regularly at faster-than-light speed.
After receiving the call, Spacejumper immediately got into position for switching into superluminal speed at perfect angle.
Without having time to realize it, the threat was smashed into little pieces by the sheer force of Starjumper’s speed.
Read more (https://medium.com/@ageofchains/starjumper-qoras-hope-fb7055fdc117).

Starjumper, Qora's Hope will be among the most powerful cards for the game.

Only 222.222 Starjumper, Qora's Hope cards will ever exist.

The distribution of the card is organized as follows:

3000 cards for 0,002 BTC or 0,2 XCP each.

Minimum purchase amount is 2 cards.

1.000 units will be put aside for promotional activities.

200 units will be distributed among the Age of Chains team.

The other cards will not be sold directly and are going to become accessible by purchasing card packs.
The chances of receiving a Starjumper, Qora's Hope card within a regular card pack will be way below 1%.

The card can be bought through the Age of Chains - Official Swapbot: Starjumper, Qora's Hope (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-starjumper-qoras-hope#choose).

Secure yourself one of the few available Starjumper, Qora's Hope cards now:


-----> Get Starjumper, Qora's Hope (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-starjumper-qoras-hope#choose) <-----


To make sure that we will get the card out to a variety of people, we will load up the swapbots multiple times per tier with only with a few cards.
So if you find the swapbots being out of stock, just check back once in a while to see if it got refilled.

---

There will be more updates following in the next days. A lot has been going on such as restructurings within the core team.
Stay tuned as the journey to a decentralized galaxy continues! :)

Card Burn

The card burning will take place the 20th of July.

Those that have been buying our cards are being rewarded:
Moving forward, we are going to burn the remaining direct sale supply (apart from the card pack supply) of all 8 cards in circulation.
These last days approaching the card burn are therefore the last chance to secure yourself our first cards before it is too late.

After the card burn event, the cards are only going to be available on the open market.
Or you wait much longer and try your luck finding the cards in our card packs - however notice that these cards are extremely rare.

Direct Card Sale Overview:

Card 001: Woodcoin's Guardian (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot#choose)
Sold: 267
Remaining: 0

Card 002: Tau the Time Traveller (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-tau-the-time-traveller#choose)
Sold: 462
Remaining: 381

Card 003: L'ourn, Hidden Defender of Monero (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-lourn-defender-monero#choose)
Sold: 231
Remaining: 612

Card 004: Electrum, Home of Eleg (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-electrum-home-of-eleg#choose)

Sold: 421
Remaining: 579

Card 007: Awakening of Myriad (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-awakening-of-myriad#choose)

Sold: 1018

The "remaining" supply excludes the card reserve planned for card packs. On July 20th, any remaining supply is going to be burned and therefore becomes unavailable to obtain.

These are the last days to secure yourself the first Age of Chains cards.

After the burning, we expect more trading activity to appear on the open market as this will be the only place to buy these first cards.
The Book of Orbs (https://bookoforbs.com/) app gives a great market overview and can then be used nicely for managing your Age of Chains cards.

Thank you for the amazing support!

Card Release
We proudly present:

Series 2
Card 009:
Battlefield Harvester
Card Amount
Total: 6666 Presale: 1500


A simple parasite that evolved to suck up the life force of its victims and transform it into an almost pure form of energy.
Usually their giant prey doesn’t even feel the life drain:

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/009bct.jpg

Quote
It was easy enough to conquer this section, so now that the battle units moved on, it is finally time to get to work.
The primitive inhabitants are full of energy which makes them the ideal subjects to test the potential of our newly manipulated forces.
As they creep on the battlefield, the air is filling with new horror and desperation.
The wounded and dying realize that their torment is not over yet.

1500 cards for 0,002 BTC or 0,5 XCP each.

Minimum purchase amount is 2 cards.

200 units will be put aside for promotional activities.

In 10 days it is 9 months since this thread started. Can we see:
A timeplan with realistic estimations.
Pictures from a game prototype or an early version.
Statistics and pictures of the complementary cards.

You will earn more money from this project delivering a working game than from new card sales.

Thank you for your questions!

Most technical development so far went into getting the backend on track to achieve the kind of structure that is being described in the OP. As we are dealing with a synchronous mulitplayer game, we had to give it extra care to make sure everything runs as expected. Currently, we have a very talented 3D Designer to craft out the arena for the prototype so soon we will have more visuals to show that demonstrate the environment wherein the matches take place. As said before, I want to be extra careful with speaking out particular time frames for achieving certain milestones, although I understand your curiousity. My personal goal is to come out with a playable prototype within this year so that our community soon can playtest an early version of the game, allowing them to give feedback and therefore enables us to further improve the game. The prototype will be web based (as opposed to a desktop version for the final release) and in particular serves the purpose of improving the game mechanics and card balancing.

We have several spreadsheets with cards worked out (some of them being outdated due to revisions of core game mechanics) and are currently working on finishing an all-around rulebook that gives a good overview of everything we have so far. To prevent copycats, we will hand out the rulebook only to a selected number of trusted community members who then may review it and add their feedback so we can further improve it.

I hope this answers your questions. :)

It's great to see more cards are now available!

How many different cards will be released for this series and will the remainder be burnt this time too?

Thank you, starblocks!

There will probably be 10 cards in this Series 2. And yes, we will have another card burn for this series after a while.

Any upcoming date for your ICO or is it loosely tipped to be in 2018 and how much are you hoping to raise?

There are currently no details yet about a possible ICO. We are thinking about various possibilities but I want to make sure that if we launch an ICO that the token will actually have real utility within the environment we are creating.

1st Age of Chains Paper Wallet Raffle

Yesterday I was attending the Monero meetup in Berlin and got in touch with a great variety of likeminded people.

As a specialty, I created the first Age of Chains paper wallet and loaded it with L'ourn, Hidden Defender of Monero (https://xchain.io/tx/1074850) (MONEROCARD), the third Age of Chains card.

Congratulations to K4os, the winner, who was the closest in predicting the checksum of the Monero block 1399133 hash:

3D Arena Development Update

Version 1

A first attempt to create the environment we are seeking.
 
http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/Arena/AoC3D01.jpg

Version 2

The first iteration. The arena's ground structure starts taking the desired shape.

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/Arena/AoC3D02.jpg

Version 3

The second iteration. Shaders and more details are emerging. Still a lot to work ahead but the direction is clear:
Granting the player access to an epic environment worthy the cards being played and the time we spend playing.

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/Arena/AoC3D03.jpg

Outlook

Besides this, Waldemar and myself are doing heavy playtesting during these days to finalize the game mechanics for the prototype.
Creating a card game with rules that make good sense and are fun to play is a very iterative process with every match we play.
I would have liked to come to the release of the prototype this year but considering the duration that all the processes connected
to the creation of our prototype take, I expect the prototype to be ready by spring 2018. Rather than creating false hype around
roadmaps based on nothing, I prefer sharing my honest opinion with you. What we are doing here is trying to create an epic game
under a very limited budget (we have not done an ICO so far). We have already come a long way and I know we will get there,
it only needs time to reach the quality we seek. Also, I would like to speak out a huge thank you to all AoC supporters!
You are the ones making this possible. If you ever happen to be in Berlin, I invite you to a physical playtesting
Age of Chains match, so you can start experiencing the feeling of the game yourself.

Thank you for your questions, starb!

I know Footballcoin but did not follow their development much, following up in their Bitcointalk-Thread now. So far, I do not think their ICO was a fiasco because they issued their cards on top of Counterparty, or why do you think was it?

For us, Counterparty offers everything we need plus they have some great implementations coming up that make Counterparty even better for us to use compared to other blockchains. Plus we highly value security Counterparty is a protocol running on top of Bitcoin, the blockchain with by far the highest hash rate. Moving to our own blockchain would rather be bad than good news as it would create lots of additional risks with no added value.

your artwork videos are just awesome

Thank you meyer!

As we are looking to expand our YouTube presence, we are happy for any likes and comments under our videos. Also, make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYDgnHlrNXoZSR1fPCRZwRA/?sub_confirmation=1) to keep up to date with the newest video releases. :)

thanks for fixing them. I have placed an order, however my transaction is still unconfirmed after more than 24 hours. (Confirming delivery with 0 confirmations.) - Battlefield Harvester card

It's not that I am in a hurry (that I want to play the game now and use that card... LOL  ;D)

For a transaction of 854 bytes, a Tx fee of 23.419 sat/B  might be low IMO. (but hey... Tx fees are expensive nowadays)

https://blockchain.info/tx/55752ee9853fde6b5d843e4b5fe0ce0658fd55878a23c2229dccda92d961ad48

However, the weekend is ahead, and there is a possibility that the mempool clears out (hopefully)

Do you declare the amount of the transactions fees in the swapbot , or is it automatically determined by the swapbot?

Yes, we have to manually adjust the fee for each swapbot. Just some days ago I adjusted the fee downwards as the mempool was not as crowded to save some of the tx costs but just yesterday the mempool spiked up again, thus causing the delay:

http://bitcoinschule.de/aoc/bctpics/mempool.JPG
(Source: http://bitcointicker.co/networkstats/)

Sorry for the waiting time, I have adjusted the swapbots tx fees upwards again and hope upcoming swaps go through faster.

My personal feeling is that towards the end of the month, the mempool gets more crowded as people that use BTC to actually pay bills or get paid tend to do so towards the end of the month.


What are the timing of the launch of the ICO to develop the game? Cards are wonderful, but the game itself is important. I think Age of the chains is very promising game.

There are no definite ICO plans yet but we are already developing the game despite not having run a classical ICO. :)

Hi VirtualCloudMining,

Thank you for asking and sorry for having been inactive in this thread for quite a while - most communication has shifted towards our Slack (https://ageofchainsslack.herokuapp.com/) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/ageofchains). Game development is progressing slowly but steadily - there are so many aspects to take care of but we are well on our way. There will be a conclusionary statement about this first year in the history of Age of Chains for you to read. We already have come a long way but are still at the very beginning of our journey and I thank you all for your incredible support throughout all this time.

Meanwhile, we will present the Age of Chains project in New York City January 13th at the world's first Rare Digital Art Festival (https://raredigitalartfestival.splashthat.com/). I invite anyone interested to come join us there - I would love to meet you, exchange thoughts and ideas and possibly play a physical round of Age of Chains on the side.

Stay tuned for the 2017 resumé post! :)

Best,
m4nki

Awesome artwork and I love the lore!

What's this worth?

What's this worth?

Whatever people are willing to pay for it. There is no set price other than the price that it costs when you can buy the card through the swapbot. If the pre-sale of a card is over the market determines the price of the card.

I sincerely appreciate all the activity here in the thread since my last comment.

The more recent time, I was fully committed to spend time with a very close family member who weeks ago finally moved on to his truly home where I am sure he is well. Following that event, I spent my time in nature to pause, reflect and be in full gratefulness of the memories I have been having with him.

That said, I will be back with full activity by the middle of March.

Our plans remain the same and I have never been more motivated to reach our goals and fulfill our vision.

Hey! great project. I appreciate very much that you’ve already developed your platform.


Thank you for your kind words and welcome to Age of Chains!

Which platform are you referring to? The game is under development and a long-term project.

We did not have a classical ICO raising hundreds of thousands or millions of funds but slowly progress with each card we are coming out with. Presently, our CTO has to work full-time besides AoC to make a living. The goal is to reach a situation where we have enough funds at our disposal for being able to secure his full-time work on AoC long-term.

In any case, this is the project of my life and we are dedicated to bring it to full fruition no matter what.

What types of tokens platform is going to issue?


Our cards are being issued on top of Counterparty (https://counterparty.io) and thus are secured by the Bitcoin blockchain.

The first 14 cards are already out and the Series 2 card presale is currently live. You can buy them through our swapbots, e.g. here:

Thanatos the Rippler (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-thanatos-the-rippler)

Hi devs, can you  clarify what is the lower limit of my donation at your ICO and pre-ICO?

The Series 2 cards can be currently bought through our presale - the minimum contribution amount depends on the card but roughly equals $10-$20.

As some cards are more expensive and rare than others, prices between cards vary.

Currently, the rarest Series 2 card is Battlefield Harvester (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-harvester#choose) with a maximum supply of 6.666 cards. The least rare card of this series so far is Invasion Scout (https://swapbot.tokenly.com/bot/m4nki/age-of-chains-official-swapbot-invasion-scout#choose) with a maximum supply of 1.000.000 cards.

Post by: m4nki on April 10, 2018, 11:00:17 PM
Tell me pls such a question. What you wanna do with unsold tokens after the ICO?

The unsold presale supply will be burned at the end of the Series. After Series 1 we already had a burn - the results can be seen here (https://xchain.io/address/1AgeofChainsSeries1Burnxxxy1xR3Ao).

The rest of the supply will be allocated for future purposes such as sale of card packs. When purchasing card packs, it will be rather difficult to obtain the cards currently available in the presale as all of them are relatively rare compared to the overall supply of cards that we will have.

The Series 2 Presale will end after the release of Card 020.
We currently have 14 cards out.

Besides our card presale, there are no definite plans for an ICO.

An option we have been looking into in the past is to raise a $400k seed round from angel investors, starting roughly at $50k in a ~10% round at a $4 million premoney valuation.

If in the midterm future we cannot lift our sales, we might reactivate our efforts in that direction.

Thank you for your interest, Starblocks!

We are progressing on card and arena creation - in order to get full speed on the technical development of the game we need to raise funds, either through card sales or through a seed round, in order to get our CTO full-time involved. So our immediate focus is on creating the last cards of Series 2.

We also have two interviews and some other surprise coming up. Join our Telegram to follow our development more closely:

Nice idea to have limited edition physical cards, but after buying most of the cards to date I do feel like there is only so much money I can spend on a game which I know almost nothing about and which won't be released until some undetermined time in the (probably quite distant) future.

Hi Cryptorials!

Yes, I can totally understand. I wish things would be moving faster, too but we are moving steadily ahead. We appreciate the support you have been giving us so far and I am sorry for things taking so long.

Meanwhile, you can check out the video to our latest card here:

https://i.imgur.com/S24HtT9.png (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVB2K3-wxd4)

I hope you like it. As you can see, we try to make every card something special, rather than using some quick sketch. What we are looking to achieve is not just another TCG but something epic in every way and this takes time but hopefully will ultimately reward us with something unique that the world has not seen before.

I had the pleasure to talk to the founder in person in Minsk today - very cool project!  It's probably going to be a bit niche for the "old school Bitcoin community" that actually lived through the altcoin craze of 2013 and didn't just arrive last year with ICOs, but that's the fun of it!

I'm thinking about supporting this project and buying some of the presale cards through tokenmarkets.com.  The item descriptions say "Use the IndieSquare Wallet, Book of Orbs or Tokenly to buy cards from the Age of Chains swapbot".  Does that mean that I have to use those wallets, or can I also use, say, CounterWallet instead?

I've no actual experience with Counterparty so far - and CounterWallet looks to me like the most trustworthy wallet.  (I certainly don't want a mobile wallet nor a Chrome extension, so that from the three listed only Book of Orbs remains.)

Also, do I need the BTC to buy the cards in the same wallet, or can I send them just from my regular Bitcoin wallet instead and have the cards transferred to my Counterparty wallet's address?

I'm thinking about supporting this project and buying some of the presale cards through tokenmarkets.com.  The item descriptions say "Use the IndieSquare Wallet, Book of Orbs or Tokenly to buy cards from the Age of Chains swapbot".  Does that mean that I have to use those wallets, or can I also use, say, CounterWallet instead?

I've no actual experience with Counterparty so far - and CounterWallet looks to me like the most trustworthy wallet.  (I certainly don't want a mobile wallet nor a Chrome extension, so that from the three listed only Book of Orbs remains.)

Thank you so much for supporting Age of Chains! People like you are the ones making the journey to accomplishing our vision possible.

As far as it goes for Desktop wallets, both Counterwallet.io (https://counterwallet.io) and FreeWallet.io (http://freewallet.io) are great to use. My favorite is FreeWallet.io as it constantly is being developed and the creator J Dog is very feedback oriented.

Also, do I need the BTC to buy the cards in the same wallet, or can I send them just from my regular Bitcoin wallet instead and have the cards transferred to my Counterparty wallet's address?

This is a great question. In fact, you can send BTC from any wallet and the card delivery happens through an unrelated process where you claim the cards via email.

Please let me know if you have further questions! :)

This deck is a 3D graphic, right? It looks so real! :o
Please update this thread more often since you're still working on the game. Will there be any alpha/beta access to the game anytime soon?

You mean the arena? :) Yes, it is a 3D arena.

We are working on a digitally playable version of the game. Obtaining the necessary funding to get our CTO full-time involved in our project would help accelerate a lot as he currently still has to work full-time on a different project to sustain a living. So while it currently is tough for me to say when it is ready, we certainly are working on making it happen as soon as possible.

Thanks for the reply - I figured everything out, and all worked like a charm.  So now I'm the happy owner of a few series-2 cards. :)

The cards collected in the game Age of Chains, will only be collectible or can make exchanges for other altcoins? Will the Game be available for any type of platform?

I'm interested in getting my hands on some of the sold-out series-1 cards.  So if you want to make some XCP, consider the bids I created on the Counterparty Market or place your counter-asks and I will look at them. :)

The game will be mainly developed for desktop. We might do a mobile version afterwards.

You will be able to use Age of Chains cards in the Age of Chains game but you can also use the Counterparty DEX do trade your cards against XCP. A good app for this currently is Book of Orbs (https://bookoforbs.com/index_eng.html), both for Android and web. We once wrote an article on it to read here (https://bookoforbs.com/index_eng.html).

Of course, also other games may decide to add functionality to our cards in their games. An example is Sarutobi Island (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mandelduck.sarutobiisland&hl=en), wherein you can summon various monsters by putting two different Age of Chains cards on an altar.

I'm interested in getting my hands on some of the sold-out series-1 cards.  So if you want to make some XCP, consider the bids I created on the Counterparty Market or place your counter-asks and I will look at them. :)

Nice to see some activity happening! :) Wishing you the best of luck in getting your hands on some of those cards!

How is the structure of the game actually planned to be?  Have you considered making the game playable in a decentralsed or partially decentralised P2P fashion in addition to providing a server for it?

Also, what do you think about making the game-play provably fair (can also be done with a central server)?  Using commit/reveal schemes, one can implement provably fair, trustless and decentralised card shuffling between two players.  I think that adding this will give the game a bit more "blockchain" touch (even though a blockchain is not the technical solution here).

By structure do you mean the game mechanics? It has similarities with MTG and Hearthstone but we want to have some uniqueness to it, too. So far, we have restrained from making all of our game mechanics publicly available to protect our IP as there are so many copycats in crypto. The digital prototype will provide more clarity for our core community about the gameplay. Also, I am more than happy to show you or anyone else how an AoC match feels through a physical playtesting session. :) We want Age of Chains to teach people a little about the crypto universe, making it nice to play both for people that have not much of a clue about crypto but are interested, as well as for crypto OGs.

I know from snailbrain that with XAYA you are looking to enable a more decentralized way of creating the game instead of running it on a server. It certainly sounds interesting but for now we just want to do it the simple, known way. One could think about migrating the backend at a later stage but this is still far out.

Having provably fair card shuffling certainly would be great. Since I am not a coder I do not know how easy that is to implement but I will talk with our CTO. Once we are at that stage and if he has questions about how to get that done, I will come back to you to ask for more details! :)

I think what we try to do with Xaya is a bit different, though.  Xaya is all about decentralised, global game state and mechanics - in terms of AoC, that would be more the part that Counterparty does for you.  (And in fact, something like Counterparty could be implemented easily using Xaya.)

For simple player-vs-player games that are not about money as in AoC, you don't need a blockchain at all (except for tracking of card ownership).  You could still build the game in a way that makes the games played in a P2P fashion, simply by having the two players connect directly to each other rather than your server.

But I agree that this is certainly not something very important, especially not for the start.  At a later stage, I think it would fit well to the general decentralisation theme that you try to teach also with AoC, though.  After all, you're a citizen of Milky Way and not Andromeda I assume? :)

Having provably fair card shuffling certainly would be great. Since I am not a coder I do not know how easy that is to implement but I will talk with our CTO. Once we are at that stage and if he has questions about how to get that done, I will come back to you to ask for more details! :)

I'm not a cryptographer myself, but I've spent quite some time thinking about provable fairness and random numbers in that context for Huntercoin and Xaya (and discussed with snailbrain).  I don't think that provably-fair card shuffling is hard to implement, and there are multiple approaches to achieve it; so yes, let me know if you think you are ready for it and I'm happy to discuss that with your CTO!  (But also here, I don't think this is important for the start - it can be added later anytime you feel like it.)

Will the series-2 presale end at a certain time and unsold cards be burnt as with series 1?  If so, when will that be?

Thank you, domob and sorry for the late reply. These are all great thoughts you have and I hope we will be able to implement some of the ideas. :)

Great question! Yes, the Series 2 presale will probably end at some point, but first some things have to happen: First, we want to get to 20 published cards and then start our marketing efforts - the burn of the unsold Series 2 presale cards will follow, assuming we hit certain funding milestones through the sale.

Priority number one for us in the moment is to receive funding in order to move the technical development of the game forward. The immediate burn of Series 1 cards from last year left us with a lot of time with little revenue, as our card creation speed slowed down and people have been buying Series 1 cards only from other card holders, not us. We have to make sure we obtain the necessary funding (hopefully through a seed round) and depending on how quickly we achieve that, we will be more flexible with card burns and so forth.

Tomorrow I will be presenting Age of Chains at the Blockchain Masters Cologne (https://www.eco.de/event/blockchain-masters-cologne-2018/) event. It would be amazing to see you there! :)

Yes, I fully understand that - make sure you are able to proceed with the project!  I was just curious to hear about your further presale plans.

By the way, for you and anyone else who might be interested in participating in the presale:  Unfortunately I had a relatively bad experience with my latest orders through Tokenmarkets.  They failed to recognise my payment at first, and then they screwed up the token withdrawal (it tried to send 100,000,000x the correct amount, which then obviously failed).  Their support always fixed things for me and in the end everything was fine, but it was some hassle.  I hope they will be able to fix their stuff soon, but perhaps be careful and just contact support if something is wrong (and they will fix it).

For future card releases, would it be an option to (also) sell some through the Counterparty DEX instead of only through Tokenmarkets?  That is of course not as nice as the shop, but it would make it possible for power users to buy without an intermediary that can screw up like that.  And perhaps you can save some fees on the way as well.

Hey domob!

Thank you so much for your comments in this thread and sorry for the delay in response and the hassle you have been experiencing going through Tokenmarkets as a service. Please PM me your Counterparty address, so I can transfer you some Age of Chains cards as an apology. Tokenmarkets has shut down their service as of end of last year and due to your feedback as well as the shut down of Tokenmarkets, we will switch back to the Counterparty DEX as the main distribution method for our cards.

I have posted an update on the Telegram group a while back which pretty much still sums up our current situation quite well:

Quote
The progress of the game currently mainly happens on the side of character creation as well as the 3D Arena. We have the game mechanics set up but need funding to involve our CTO as he currently has to maintain a full-time position in a different company to sustain a living. Unfortunately, until then, the digital realization of the game is on hold. We need to be able to pay salaries not only to our CTO but also to being able to build a team around him, such as a back-end focused developer since the main specialization of Enrico is the front-end. We want to build the game from the getgo in a scalable way and Enrico has stated he needs development help in order to proceed. Last year, I have been mostly living from my savings and have been financing all costs related to the project from my own savings and I am more than willing to continue so in the future but it is mainly sufficient for paying the costs associated with tax advisor and to tbe financial authorities but not to build a sustainable technical development team. Other crypto projects raise millions of USD - if we could raise approximately 500k, this would enable us the full realization of the game. I will surely expand the effort in that direction to secure us the needed funding, but first I have to get the accounting side of things straight - the least fun thing about the whole project. Once that part is on solid feet, we will expand our efforts to raise money from angel investors. We also thought about creating a Kickstarter campaign as we can create a lot of nice giveaways for donors.

I hope that the accounting related matters will be finished shortly in the future so that we can again focus more on card releases and speed up things drastically. A continuous card release schedule will help strengthen our position when moving towards raising a seed round involving angel investors.

Rare Digital Arts Festival 2019 in NYC

On some other news, the second Rare Digital Arts Festival in New York City will happen on 18th of May, 2019 and having been a presenting project in the first Rare Digital Arts Festival from January 2018, we are invited to exhibit our art at the show. We hope to be seeing you at the event and possibly play a round of Age of Chains on the side.

Thanks for the update, it is nice to hear the project is progressing along!  It's clear that you can't go as fast without any funding, so I wish you best of luck for getting some seed investment in the future - this is definitely an awesome project. :)

Yes, I heard about Tokenmarkets shutting down.  You are obviously in no way to blame for that and their hickups (but in the end I didn't lose anything, it was just a hassle to get it fixed by their support!).  Preselling cards through the DEX is certainly a good idea - I'm looking forward to new cards being available that way in the future!

I see that Gods Unchained is following a Hearthstone-like approach to their gameplay.
What is your plans? Will you compete with Gods Unchained or are you planning to go in a different path, maybe something like Magic The Gathering, Steam's Artifact or something unique?
