Family Guy, Futurama, King of the Hill, and More Coming Together for New Game

No idea what hearthstone is...but I found this on the game you are talking about (if people don't feel like trying to follow that link):
There have been crossover events for Fox's hit animated shows, but now, a new video game is--for the first time--bringing together the worlds of Family Guy, Futurama, King of the Hill, Bob's Burgers, and American Dad. That's all of the big Fox animated shows except The Simpsons (which has its own mobile game with EA called The Simpsons: Tapped Out).

The game is called Throwdown: The Quest for Cards, and it will be published by GameStop subsidiary Kongregate for mobile devices. As its name suggests, The Quest for Cards is a collectible card game in the vein of Hearthstone and Gwent, among others.

Players will build a deck of cards containing characters from the Fox shows, including Peter Griffin (Family Guy), Hank Hill (King of the Hill), and Leela (Futurama), among others. With a deck assembled, players can then square off against others for supremacy.

"We are thrilled to bring together these five animated comedies for the first time in Animation Throwdown: The Quest for Cards.” said Emily Greer, president and co-founder of Kongregate. “We are looking forward to integrating characters from these hit series in a unique and exciting way that fans of all the shows will really love."

Kongregate is co-developing The Quest for Cards alongside San Francisco based Chinzilla Games, which previously made Little Alchemist.

The game will be marketed on the Kongregate website, as well as on GameStop's own site (and through email blasts) and in its physical stores. Fox Digital Entertainment will also market the game. All of this is to stay, you will definitely know about the game.

The Quest for Cards is due out in Q3 for iOS and Android devices, with a release for "other platforms" to follow later. No gameplay footage or further details about how it plays have been announced yet; we'll bring you more information as it's announced.

It appears The Quest for Cards gets its name from the Family Guy game, The Quest for Stuff.

    Interesting. I've never played a collectible card game. Don't know if I'll like it

    Thanks for posting this.

    While i am an avid fan of these shows, i am not a fan of collecting games, or games with mechanics similar to Pokemon, Yu-gi-oh, etc. Or 3-in a row games or slot machines. But I've seen some people park in front of those boring machines for hours so to each their own.

    But

    It's sad these game producers can't create anything better than an existing game with a different trendy skin. I would love a game with these shows combined! But I'm already bored of the Star Trek game i started in Feb.of this year and have just recently stopped checking in daily. That's a collecting game constantly repeating the same missions to collect the same equipment to level up. Sorry but not compelling any longer.

    And again, it's just another wallet vacuum. We'll see where it falls on the freemium generosity scale somewhere between TSTO and FGTQFS! lol

    Speaks volumes to how much more entertaining THIS game is. Thanks, game devs.

    Had to remove two external links in this thread. Remember, external links are not allowed. Just explain how to search for it on the internet instead of placing a link. Rules are rules :P

    As for the game, I've never played a "card game" before. I may give it a try since I enjoy all those shows. I don't see myself spending any real money on it, but I did say that about TSTO :mrgreen:
