Luckless Seven Description


Short Description:

Freeborn is the story of Mark Vesco’s journey from a listless existence to competitive glory. Blending a fast-paced card battle system with conversations and stories that respond to your choices, we offer one of the first card games with a story exciting enough to match it. Ready to play?

Long Description:

Freeborn is the story of Mark Vesco’s coming of age. Once an inspired youngster, Mark finds himself living a listless, dutiful existence just two years out of high school. When a group of old friends contacts Mark about reuniting with them, the stars align to allow him to join his old friends in a nationwide competitive tournament.

Take control of Mark as he and six friends set out to compete in Arithia’s most popular game, Ekosi. This fast and fun card game is inspired by KOTOR’s Pazaak, and the stakes couldn’t be higher. With a little experience, money, and luck, take Mark from a modest amateur to an Ekosi champion!

Which card to play won’t be the only difficult choice for Mark, though. Along his journey, Mark will have to make several decisions that will challenge him morally, ethically, and socially. More than just a card game, Luckless Seven invites you to take control of the whole person. Who will Mark be on his quest for glory?

Noteable Quotes:


“The world design is excellent, the story feels fresh and a lot of thought has obviously gone into it’s tactical card game – it’s easy to learn, fun to play, and a perfect substitute for traditional RPG combat. A Full House.”

 -Alpha Beta Gamer

“When you give me the option to be the story and influence the game world around me, you are
onto a good thing, in my book! I can’t be the only one thinking this, as many gamers (not just card gamers) crave this level of game and story interaction.”

 -Trading Card Games
