to see which is higher. The loser has the difference removed from the monster’s life points. When the life points go down to zero, the monster is removed from the game. Like the TV show, the first person to remove all of his/her opponent’s Characters is the winner.
All of the cards come with one other special feature. According to Gannon, each and every card comes with an INDIVIDUAL computer code; that is, your Maxxor card will have its very own individual code while your friend’s Maxxor will have a DIFFERENT CODE. There’s a very good reason for it. More on that in a minute.
What’s important for the moment is when you get your cards, you can then go on to Chaotic’s official website and register all your cards (www.chaoticgame.com). From there you can also play the very same game online with anyone you care to.
“We’re already working on the tournament schedule and game play program right now,” says Gannon. “They will be for both comic and game retailers as well as for online. Like the TV show, you can play the game with people from anywhere online. We’ve experimented with it at New York City’s Neutral Ground, where we tried a tournament with about 20 different computers. What was amazing is that we did it all without any paperwork. When all is said and done, we’ll have a lot of other stores set up the same way. I’d love to see it get to the point where we have store-based tournament teams.”
There’s another interesting thing about the individual codes. A special security program has been set up so that only one person can claim the card online. So anyone who tries to cheat by claiming they have a card you already registered can’t do it.
This is VERY important because the Characters come with one additional twist. There are different versions of the same character card. By this we mean that there’s a verson of Maxxor that has his Courage rating at 100, while another might list it at 90. That 10-point difference could be the difference between whether your Maxxor survives a battle or not, and obviously, the higher the score, the better. As one can imagine, the more powerful the monster, the rarer it is.
“If I have two loves in my life, it’s for technology and trading cards,” says Gannon. “As for the first, I used my knowledge of technology to make this game. What I’m really pleased about is that I’ve also been a collector since I was a little kid. You can’t imagine how good it feels to be able to put these two together and do Chaotic, and I think we’ve really taken trading cards to the next level.”
From the way things look, one shouldn’t be surprised if players will soon agree with Gannon’s assessment.
