I just recieved my first Perplex City pack in the mail. The cards I recieved are:
#004 Zoo Zanyism
#039 4 Colour Theorem
#087 Bar Crossing
#114 Taking the Biscuit
#161 Dances with Bees
#201 Smoke and Mirrors
(If you’re curious, you can look up each card at the Card Catalog)
I have some puzzling to do now.
I’m not big into addictive card collecting games, but this looks so awesome. Site bookmarked pending my return from my trip when I have more time too look at it and become addicted.
Technically, you don’t have to buy any cards to play. I’ve managed to get 6 of the cards free (the 2 freebies and 4 others)
If you look around the forums, follow the story, read the blogs, etc, you can still find the cube (i.e. Win $200k in real life)
The cards get you points which you use for nothing more than bragging rights.
You can even find the cards online and solve some of them (the ones that don’t require a lot of detail. I’ve solved 3 of them in the past hour or so… The easier ones though… 3 tougher ones left for another day.
Oh, also, They claim to send a free pack out to you if you have a blog.
this hole “purplexcity” thing looks great but i still dont get whats its all about….. do u win money or somit?
