Over 100 years ago L. Frank Baum introduced the world to the wondrous Land of Oz. Now, experience these familiar characters, fantastic locations, and bizzar creatures as never before imagined.

The Card Game of Oz is an Epic Card Game™ using the Storyline Game System™ that adds strategy to your challenging and fun adventures through Oz.


What is an Epic Card Game?
An Epic Card Game™ is a new way to build a collection of card games that be played individually or combined to expand the scope of a game. Doing away with the concept of Core Sets and Expansions, ECG sets are designed to play right out of the box, yet are written to easily interact with other sets. Players can mix cards from various sets to build their own dynamic and creative adventures.


What is the Storyline Game System?
Storyline Game System™ allows players to build a story line from a set of locations, characters, objects, events and effects. Once a prime character in the storyline has reach "The End" of the storyline, the game has ended.
