So, my son and I have been working on a new set of cards. We're about a third of the way through the first versions (unplaytested) already. It's all based on the books of Alma, Helaman, and 3 Nephi. We began by choosing 9 stories that we wanted to include specifically. The majority of the verses will be from those. There will be some extras that will fill in gaps.
The stories include:
Alma, Amulek, and the conversion of Zeezrom
Ammon and Lamoni
The massacre of the Anti-Nephi-Lehis
The preaching and death of Korihor
The Kingmen Revolt and the Title of Liberty
The Lamanite Wars and the 2000 stripling warriors
The prophecies of Samuel the Lamanite
The Gaddianton Robbers
The appearance of Christ in Zarahemla
There are some exciting new mechanics and ideas, including the Battle mechanic. Let's face it, most of the last half of the Book of Mormon is wars. There's still some great doctrine in there as well, though.
There are now character verses, which can be either righteous or wicked. There's a new mechanic called Convert, where a wicked character verse can be replaced by the righteous version of the same character.
There are also now location verses, which establish a setting for the chapters they're in. These can give bonuses to certain verses with the same location marker.
I'm very excited, so far!
