Children have a hard time choosing healthy foods, but that doesn’t mean they lack critical thinking, maybe they lack knowledge or just familiarity with the subject.
The success of RPG Card Games are proof that children of all ages are capable of thinking strategically and making well thought decisions. When planning which card to use next, they consider the future consequences of their choice. Markonne Pharmaceuticals presents The Pyramid War, a Role Playing Card Game inspired by the Food Pyramid that encourages the players to decide for themselves between healthy and unhealthy foods based on their stats, and at the same time increasing their knowledge of healthy options. By design, every unhealthy food option will have a detrimental aspect, and the others will have characteristics inspired by their actual nutritional value. A fun and informative way to encourage healthy choices and promote a better future. The Deck: The game will have 7 different groups of characters to play with: Veggies, Fruits, Meats, Dairy, Junk, Carbs and Liquid - loosely inspired by the Food Pyramid. The strategy in including the Junk Food as it’s own group is to show that, although eating food that is not good is always an option, there are benefits in choosing otherwise. The idea is to replicate the real world, in which every kind of food is avaiable, and not to pretend they don’t exist The game: Each player draws 7 cards from the deck, places 3 pyramid creatures on the table at a time, and then choose one to battle. The Speed determines which one of the opponents initiates the Attack, and the other will suffer damage to their energy by subtracting the Defense points from the Attack points and then subtracting the result from the Energy points.
Each player starts with a general life stat of 7000, and at each defeated creature, the energy level for that creature should be subtracted from the general life stat. The player to end the life stat from their opponent, wins the game.
