Spell Saga is a unique story-driven solitaire card game that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world of fantasy. It contains themes of loss, identity & purpose.

While tactical thinking and no small amount of skill are needed to advance through the game, Spell Saga encourage its players to explore, rather than win. In this manner, the game is meant to be played multiple times.

The major plot of Spell Saga is always the same, but the path to find it is up to you.

Spell Saga is created by Todd Michael Rogers & Lauren Rogers

All About Spell Saga

The main story of Spell Saga is told in three acts, with each act split into a deck of cards. The story involves The Last Minstrel, who is searching the world for answers about how the world ended. Deck One ~ The Highlands serves as the Base Set of the game. The rest of the story is told through a limited number of expansions. These include Deck Two ~ The Forest & Deck Three ~ The Caves.

Advanced players will find a challenge with ~ The Prelude ~ (an optional standalone beginning to the game) and ~ The Endlude ~ (accessible only to those who have completed Decks 1 - 3).

For Players craving even more mechanics, dynamics and lore, the optional Interludes (Decks 1.5 & 1.2) will be released this year.

Spell Saga is available in several languages, in both PnP files & limited runs of physical editions. You can click the pics below to visit the individual pages of each product.

…one of the most innovative and memorable solo player games that has been created. This game doesn’t feel like a “battle the deck” game. It is truly a story that unfolds with each turn of a card and each card is an excitement to come across. This game is astonishing.
— Jesse Peterson (dragonsoul101)
I wondered how do you win... And it became simple to me... How is any story/life “won”? You get to the next chapter, whatever that may be…I do not know how deep the intent of creating this game was... But it is beautiful... A rare happenstance of true art.
— FALLOUT JOE
…when I play a chain of cards to, in a sense, reinvent the gameplay, if even for one round, it feels like I’m doing something not only revolutionary and unique, but also something [the creator] may have never intended, feel there is no wrong way to play the game.

…uses cards and card combos the likes of which I’ve never seen before in a game…While the overall gameplay itself is familiar and not particularly revolutionary, the mechanisms built into the cards are staggeringly complex and nuanced, bordering even on madness…The game itself evokes feelings of isolation, helplessness, and frustration. …This is a solo experience for players who enjoy sitting down in a leather recliner to read a book on an overcast Saturday afternoon.

After the World Ended Committee (ATWE//COMM) is the combined mystic might of Spell Saga writer//designer Todd Michael Rogers & his cousin, Spell Saga illustrator//world builder Lauren Rogers. 

Formed in 2019 upon the dormant ashes of French Toast Gaming Company, ATWE//COMM was designed as an outlet for Todd & Lauren to finish what they had started together in 2011: using various products to explore and celebrate the world of Spell Saga, and the histories of those who lived within it.

Spell Saga is created by ATWE//COMM & distributed through SUBHEATHEN.

Spell Saga has the good fortune of having its own theme song. “Grain” by Cricket Engine was discovered by Todd when the band messaged him online in 2005. The song was downloaded to a beast of a laptop, a heavy machine with a cracked screen named “Blinky” . There it remained until it was pulled and downloaded to various iPods, a thin plastic ibook and finally a burned disc which was lost between the seats of a dying Geo Metro.

In 2008 Todd tracked down a member of the defunct band, Sean Patrick Maylone—who was now living in South Korea and performing as a musical artist named Ssighborggg. Between emails it was agreed Todd could use the song for an undecided project. In 2011 Grain became the official song for Spell Saga.

In October of 2013 Spell Saga was Kickstarted to no avail, before being kicked to life in October of the following year. During the 2014 Kickstarter Todd’s brother Asher Rogers wrote a song that had nothing to due with the game, but fit the tone and talk of the upcoming forest deck. He allowed Todd to post it online, and this became the second official song of the game. The album cover was made from a digital painting by Lauren Rogers, who made it to celebrate the funding of the game. You can listen to more of Asher’s work with his possibly defunct band: Captain Baby.
