Original Thread: In which card games are serious business - Let's Play Lost Kingdoms



Lost Kingdoms is an Action-RPG released in 2002 for the Nintendo Gamecube by From Software, the same team behind Armored Core and Dark Souls. Notable for a unique card-based combat system and an exeptionally generic storyline, Lost Kingdoms has found some popularity as a niche title and remains notable for being one of the first genuine RPGs released for the Gamecube prior to Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. Despite having failed largely due to lack of marketing and some clunky mechanics at its original release, I still really enjoy Lost Kingdoms for its unique gameplay and the random elements in the combat system.

Lost Kingdoms is the story of generic princess Katia, whose kingdom is under threat by a strange Black Fog that has already engulfed most of the continent. Using the Runestone entrusted to her kingdom, Katia must use its power and the power of ancient magical cards to fight her way through the Black Fog and save the world.

Viewer Interaction
- If there are any cards that I find that you absolutely want to see, let me know and I'll try to throw it into the deck at earliest opportunity. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to give you guys full control of the deck I use, but if more than one deck was suggested it'd be a matter of trying to consolidate the suggestions as best I could and that'd just end up with a big mess.
- If you want to do guest commentary, send me a PM and I'll try to find a recording time that works for all involved.
