Details on the Ender’s Game Trading Cards Released

Many fans have been waiting for the Ender’s Game film for years. Almost all have been probably fantasizing for Ender’s Game trading cards. Earlier this year we found out Cryptozoic will be creating trading cards for the Ender’s Game film but we still haven’t gotten a release date for them. However, new details are emerging from the people at Cryptozoic.

You can now budget how many packets you’ll be buying with this new information:

Packs: 5 Cards per pack, 24 packs per box

MSRP: $3.50 per pack

Base Set: 72 card base set featuring images from the film

Chase Sets: International Fleet and Formic chase sets (all 2:24 packs)

Inserts: Autograph cards (1:24 packs) and Wardrobe and Props cards (1:24 packs)

Autograph Signers (Signers in Bold have returned cards, Signers with an * are under contract)Harrison Ford who plays Colonel Hyrum Graff*, Asa Butterfield as Ender Wiggin*, Brandon Soo Hoo as Fly Molo*, Aramis Knight as Bean*, Khylin Rhambo as Dink Meeker*, Conor Carroll as Bernard*, Suraj Partha as Alai*, Nonso Anozie as Sergeant Dap*, Jimmy ‘Jax’ Pinchak as Peter Wiggin*, Andrea Powell as Theresa Wiggin*, Caleb J. Thaggard as Stilson*, and Han Soto as Colonel Graff’s aide*

To put emphasis on the inserts and chase sets, not all packs will have autographs or specific film and wardrobe images (which explains the ratios above). Again, no release date has been set but the web page states “2014” under release date so we can be seeing them soon.

Who will be collecting some Ender’s Game trading cards when they release? I’m really excited to see what images will be showing up on the cards.

board game

Today is the release of Cryptozoic’s Ender’s Game board game. The game is based on the movie and is designed for players of ages 15 and up. It’s played with two players that can go head-to-head where strategy is key to win. To win you have to capture the opponent’s gate or freeze their whole unit with your laser gun.

“Players are going to have tons of fun with the unique zero-G movement rules,” explains Cryptozoic’s Lead Board Game Designer, Matt Hyra. “Once you start moving in a direction, you don’t stop until you run into something, be it a outer wall, a Star (terrain piece), or another trooper.”

You can purchase the game for $25 at your local hobby store or go to Cryptozoic’s e-store.

Who’s planning on playing the game? It really seems like a fun game to get your hands on and who doesn’t want to play as Ender Wiggin? Let us know what you think about the new game board below in the comments.

Cryptozoic will be releasing an Ender’s Game board game titled “Ender’s Game Battle School: The Board Game” on November 13th.

Based on the epic movie from Summit Entertainment and director Gavin Hood (from the Orson Scott Card novel) comes a board game of combat in the null gravity arena of the International Fleet’s Battle School. Two fierce rivals square off to see who has the best strategy and the steadiest trigger finger: Ender Wiggin and his Dragon Team or Bonzo Madrid and his Salamander Team. Characters maneuver around the null gravity arena with various amounts of control over where they will end up each time they move. When you move, you don’t stop until something, or someone, gets in your way. Teamwork is key! Win by capturing your opponents’ gates or by freezing all of his units with your laser-light guns. Dice are used to resolve combat, but strategy and tactics will rule the day.

Before it goes public Ender’s Game Fandom is giving away a copy to one lucky fan in the Enderverse!
