Is there some place where you can see all the cards spoiled thus far in some sort of list or image gallery?

Not that I know of, but I would love to have this - I may have missed something juicy.

The HEX wiki could use some love http://hextcg.wikia.com/wiki/Hex_TCG_Wiki

Definitely. I actually set it up because I am so excited about the game but didn't realize that it is more complicated than I thought. :/

I would be happy to pass on admin right to any volunteer that maybe has some more experience with managing a wiki.

Cheers!

I wish I could help you but I know little about setting up a wiki.

+1 to the Wiki. Unfortunately I too know nothing about wikis. :/

@CZE :
Could you please have somewhere on your website a page that compiles the cards you've previewed ?

I did put every card I could find as of yet in the "Cards"-Section on our guildpage:

https://simply-gaming.com/hex/ut/

Right now, I'm only throwing new cards into the sections. Going to improve the sorting etc along the way.

Not to nitpick, but the Black Tiger doesn't actually say artifact (It doesn't say much of anyting, that might be an oversight.)

Leave it there for now, but maybe we should ask what is up with it sometime.

I wasn't sure where to put it right now and artifact felt the most reasonable way to go until we know more, yeah :)

I'll probably get around to helping out once my test is over tomorrow. Gotta start studying now XD

First thing's first. Long time lurker(atleast since the KS campaign started), first time poster. I have absolutely zero experience running wikis, but I have a lot of freetime to help out with running one. More than happy to help and learn along with everyone else involved.

Hehe, Thanks. I'll work on improving the content during the next days, but I want to carefully include the wiki somehow to avoid too much double work inside the community :)

But the Card-Section, Kickstarter Updates and a few other things I'm going to add soon, will be kept up to date :)

Is a card database something people want to see? I run the site ForgeGamers for the DCG SolForge and we have a card database for that game. Now that Hex has caught my eye and seems to be offering way more than SolForge can, me and the rest of the team may make a switch and create a sister site, which would include a card database.

So none of the Card Databases currently available has any information that was shared in the movies. A good example would be the card "Evolve", which gives all your troops +1/+1. This card was shown in the kickstarter movie that showed the gameplay.

Anyone feel like scouring the movies for any and all Card information?

Tonight I'm gonna make some time and do some work on the wiki, I don't have really strong experience, but I should be able to do some stuff, the site really needs. I do have to say that I really dislike using wikia for the wiki, "wowwiki/wowpedia" really left a sour taste in my mouth (everything is always about the money)...

I'm actually just watching the gameplay video and taking pictures of the cards Ben does highlight to figure out, which of these haven't been posted yet :)

Hey everyone. I made a template (Template:CardTable (http://hextcg.wikia.com/wiki/Template:CardTable)) for you guys so it'll be easier for you to input information. I've updated Bone Warrior (http://hextcg.wikia.com/wiki/Bone_Warrior), Pile of Bones (http://hextcg.wikia.com/wiki/Pile_of_Bones), and Zoltog (http://hextcg.wikia.com/wiki/Zoltog) to make sure it worked fine. I've also uploaded their full sized images.

I'm not familiar with the Wikia syntax, so I had to get used to it. It might not be perfect because of that, but I do enjoy doing these type of things. :P

That looks really good! I like!

Is the header color based on the resource type?

I just put the cards from the howtoplay video (Wild/Ruby only) into our galleries here:

https://simply-gaming.com/hex/ut/

Going to check the wiki in a sec and get those included there as well :)

Thanks that looks really great.

A next step could be to try and listen in on all the other movies, I'm sure other cards were "mentioned" there as well. Some might not be mentioned by name, in that case we can maybe add a page "unnamed cards" or something, which lists all these cards together with their source.

Some people might even go all crazy and try to add the original (first appearance) of each card to the card page. That way people can track where each card comes from (important in case cards evolve, so we can have a history of that).

Thanks Tikey. I wasn't sure how to make a template. That should save a lot of time.

Ah, that template was a life saver. I assumed Mauve or Rak made it. Thank you Tikey!

Added some cards from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbXysBnqMR4. Aggressive War Hulk, Goreseeker, Glimmerglen Witch, Zodiac Shaman and Rage Monger! On the page with the list of all the cards we've discovered, I ruined the table cause I couldnt figure out how to put the lines in. So someone may wanna fix that up so it looks neat again :-)

If you go into the source code, it's really easy to fix the formatting on the tables.
When the lines were missing it was because of extra space and missing punctuation.

For example

|
[[Aggressive War Hulk]]

[[Blinding Light]]
|-
|[[Blood Thrall]]
|-

A line was missing between Aggressive War Hulk and Blinding Light. Easily fixed by reformatting to the following:

|[[Aggressive War Hulk]]
|-
|[[Blinding Light]]
|-
|[[Blood Thrall]]
|-

and so on.

The start and end of each list has some more text, but you don't need to manipulate that at all.
