Dayton-made card game is growing — and there’s a party with free pizza to celebrate it

Fans of anime and card games like Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh will be excited to know that Dayton’s original card game, Galatune, is releasing a new expansion deck this week.

It’s called Cosmic Deception, and there will be a release party at D20 this weekend to celebrate it. 

>> We tried 6 board games from Ohio designers, and here’s how they rate

“Galatune is a battle arena card game that takes inspiration from popular video games like Overwatch, Super Smash Brothers, and Pokemon,” explains Adam Wik, the Wright State alumni who created the game. “Two or more players each lead a Champion into battle to fight for Victory Points. It’s a unique system where everyone takes their turns simultaneously and characters respawn like in a video game.” 

At the Galatune Cosmic Deception release party, newcomers to the game can learn how to play while experienced players try to knock each other out. There will also be cocktails and free pizza. 

>> Bar and gaming arcades to visit in Dayton 

ABOUT THE GAME

Galatune isn’t just about the amazing art and unique gameplay. The game’s setting, planet Lyra, also has a cool fantasy backstory, complete with political intrigue, a class struggle and romance. But it also has lasers, robots and elves. 

“Every card in the game is anchored into a rich fantasy universe, so the backstory and art of each card is like one more puzzle piece revealing more about the story,” Wik says. “Although Galatune looks like your typical fantasy adventure, we dig into some surprisingly abstract science fiction themes, too.” 

Wik says when he was designing the Cosmic Deception deck, he reached out to his community of gamers to find out what they would like to see added to Galatune. 

“The people wanted more backstabbing and betrayal, and this expansion is exactly that,” he says. “By mixing some or all of these new cards into your shared deck, you set a battle themed around intense betrayals.”

Cosmic Deception also adds more excitement to the game’s fascinating story. 

“This new set teases some of the greater conflicts happening behind the scenes,” Wik said. “Many cards in this set deal with manipulating time, space and the universe itself.” 

In the end, says Adam Wik, it’s all about the kids who have made Galatune a success. The 29-year old game designer says he’s gotten some great feedback from his audience. 

“I cannot describe what it feels like when someone shakes my hand and says that Galatune is the best game they’ve ever played, and that’s been happening a lot these days,” Wik says. “It’s been a long and difficult journey to get here, and still many more challenges ahead, but knowing that the game is bringing joy to the community and bringing people together keeps me pushing forward.”

ABOUT THE RELEASE PARTY 

D20, the tabletop gaming bar in Kettering, will be hosting the Cosmic Deception release party. Gamers can enjoy D20’s craft beer and cocktail offerings, as well as non-alcoholic drinks. Galatune is even providing pizza for all in attendance. The event will be live streamed. 

“D20 is our favorite gamer hangout,” Wik says. “It’s a relaxed environment that’s perfect for everything from pro tournaments to family game night. They’re great at bringing people together and they’ve been really supportive of our Dayton-born indie game.”
