I have an idea for a card game based on casting spells. I don't have much education in this area so I was hoping for some ideas. Here's how the gameplay works:
Players will have a hand of cards, and on a player's turn, they will play a card that will reveal another card from one of four face-down stacks. The players can control what card will be turned over from which stack but don't know what is on the card until the card it turned over. The flipped cards will form four columns under the four stacks of cards, and at some point, the player's will claim a column of face-up cards for themselves. Thematically, players will be casting spells from the cards they play with the column of cards they collect representing the results of the spells.
Any suggestions on what kind of spells might be performed and under what circumstances? Since its a game, players will be competing against each other, and the way it works now (open to other ideas), cards will be collected forming sets to score points.
Thanks in advance.
