9DKP: The Trading Card Game History
9DKP is a love letter to the teens-turned-super-team TV shows of days gone by. Originally envisioned by Erick Scarecrow as a half-hour animated series with a serialized story, 9DKP was going to introduce audiences to a world with deep lore and unique characters. As such, Erick created dozens of characters with their own backstories, desires, and foibles.
In the midst of continuing to create heroes, villains, and civilians for the 9DKP show, Erick discovered a design document and prototype for a card game he created in his early days as a designer. It only took one playthrough of the game for Erick to immediately remember the appeal of the fast, fun, and easy to learn game he had created so long ago. There was only one problem: a lack of diversity in cards. Since the prototype was just a sample he had put together to demo the game concept, there were only a few characters for either faction. Erick instantly saw a wealth of content to fill the void in the game that sat in front of him, and 9DKP: The Trading Card Game was born.
Marrying the mechanics of his original game idea with the characters from 9DKP, Erick had more than enough heroes and villains to create three factions: Kats, Zombies, and Survivors. He then worked with a team of playtesters and developers to polish his original concept to completion. Once he and the team were satisfied with the refined gameplay, Erick took 9DKP: The TCG to kickstarter. Successfully crowdfunded by fans of tabletop and card game, 9DKP: The TCG is now ready for the world to play it.

Like their smaller, more domesticated fellow felines, the Kats love to play with their prey! Kings of the concrete jungle, Kats excel at manipulating, and out-right destroying their opponent’s plans. Able to swipe DKP points from their enemies, Kats deny their challengers the ability to play their strongest Characters and Skratch cards, while using the stolen DKP to their own devices. Kats are so efficient at creating misfortune for their opposition that they’ll have their opponents swearing that a black Kat must have crossed their path!
The zombie apocalypse has been hard on the Survivors, but don’t let their lack of magical abilities and monstrous minions fool you into thinking they don’t stand a chance! Survivors have become the masters of carefully picking their targets and controlling the battlefield. Able to knock enemies into Kat-nap, wake their Characters up from Kat-nap, and even clear the whole battlefield in a single turn, Survivors can easily neutralize cannon-fodder Characters and directly target the other player with their biggest and best attacks. So, take note supernatural adversaries, there’s no topping human ingenuity!
It has been said that there is strength in numbers, and nowhere has that been truer than in the heart of the Zombie horde! Individually, Zombie Characters are easily defeated, but their true power lies in their penchant to swarm! Able to overwhelm their opponents quickly, Zombies are unequaled in their ability to keep the range filled with Characters, thus protecting their commander’s health! Even when their opponent whittle down their numbers, it’s all too commons for Zombies to rise from their graves and shuffle back into the range! A fearsome foe for Survivors and Kats alike, Zombies are a shambling unstoppable mass!
