Indie TCG Series – Rise of the Gummies: A Unique Hybrid Card Game Experience

Welcome back to our Indie TCG series! In today’s review, we’ll be taking a closer look at “Rise of the Gummies,” published by Pillow Fort Games. If you’re reading this on Monday, you still have time to pledge for the Kickstarter campaign by visiting the Kickstarter Here.

“Rise of the Gummies” is a 1-2 player game designed for ages 8 and above, with a quick 15-minute playtime. For more detailed information, you can visit their website at

This unique game is the first to combine physical and virtual cards, offering players the best of both worlds. “Rise of the Gummies” is a hybrid collectible card game that brings your play to life! Challenge your opponent as you strive to construct the tallest tower of Gummies in this engaging card battler, featuring real-life cards and digitally animated action.

In “Rise of the Gummies,” two players assemble a team of Gummies from five different planets, each with its distinct personality and abilities (with more to come). During each round, players reveal cards from their hand to a phone or tablet, summoning Gummies into their towers. The Gummies will do whatever it takes to reach for the stars and claim the Crown of the Gummiverse, whether it’s throwing an epic dance party or summoning a horde of undead minions.

Key Features of “Rise of the Gummies” include:

  1. Easy to learn: The “Rise of the Gummies” app provides a tutorial, allowing anyone to start stacking Gummies in five minutes or less.
  2. Beautifully animated action: Each Gummy comes to life on the screen with unique animations, and captivating players of all ages.
  3. Portable play: The game includes a base to hold your phone, enabling you to play anywhere, from a restaurant to the back of a car.
  4. Fun for all ages: “Rise of the Gummies” launches with 40 cards from its first expansion, allowing players to optimize their strategies by building a wide variety of decks.
  5. A card game at its core: While incorporating digital magic, “Rise of the Gummies” ensures players still experience the essence of a classic card game.

The developers plan to support most modern and popular Android and iOS smartphones and tablets upon release, specifically those from Apple, Samsung, and Google, which have been released within the last five years. “Rise of the Gummies” is powered by Osmo, utilizing their computer vision technology to enhance physical cards with digital magic. Pillow Fort Games is the first third-party studio to develop a game through the Powered by Osmo program, and the collaboration is an exciting milestone for both parties.

It’s worth mentioning that the “Rise of the Gummies” app is expected to run smoothly on most Android phones and tablets with similar aspect ratios. If you believe your favorite device is not included, please reach out and let them know. You can find a detailed YouTube review of the game below.
