Sonic the Hedgehog is getting a tabletop card game

Did you say Uno? You’re too slow!

Where are all my tabletop fiends at? In case you missed it, the Game Manufacturers Association (GAMA) expo just happened mostly online this year (it was held right at the start of the pandemic last year!), and a few announcements have made their way out of the show from various publishers.

Details are very sparse right now, but there’s going to be a Sonic the Hedgehog card game coming at some point. The game is literally called “Sonic: The Card Game,” and is described as “fast family fun,” in a competitive “racing” format involving players collecting “power-ups and rings to win.”

Based on the image, it seems like a very pick-up-and-play/simplistic slam-style card game, much like Uno. Don’t get too excited! Steamforged is also adding to the Horizon Zero Dawn board game, which will provide Rockbreaker, Stormbird, and Thunderjaw expansions to Kickstarter backers.

Steamforged has handled Monster Hunter World, Devil May Cry, Dark Souls, Pac-Man, Ni No Kuni II, and Resident Evil board game adaptations, so it’s no surprise that they were granted access to another big license this year.
