However, it takes a somewhat different approach to things. Collective: the Community Created Card Game is a strategy game has been in Early Access for a while now. This allowed the community to give incredibly valuable feedback during the development of it.

Collective: the Community Created Card Game is the first competitive strategy card game where players have direct control over the effect and appearance of all the cards in the game. The players can create any card they can imagine using the Card Editor. If they approve of it, all that’s left to do is post it to Subreddit. From there on, the community decides if your card is worthy of entering the game. Each week the top 10 posts are added to the game permanently, for everyone to play with. In my opinion this is the most fun part. You get to create a  card from scratch. Make a card, paint it, think of a unique name and then you give it characteristics. Create everything your imagination can think of.
