Doubloons is a tabletop and digital board game for 2-6 players that encourages you to use a strategic combination of card plays to take doubloons and win. It’s a seafaring card game where you are a pirate captain in a race to collect 7 doubloons. On your quest, you'll get to do things like plunder cards, pillage doubloons, commandeer ships, and recruit the most legendary pirates in history.
The digital game is a web-based multiplayer card game. It's new and currently in alpha, but we're using React and open source game engines to create a robust web-based digital card game experience like Hearthstone or MTG Arena. Challenges: Managing turn state and card chain queues
The tabletop board game was designed first to optimize mechanics for teams of various sizes, turn rotations, card combinations, timing, and more.
The digital game, which now includes an AI player for 1 player games, was built using React and Firebase to allow anonymous users to create accounts on the fly, match with other players, and run game state on serverless functions while players make moves that are saved.
