After 3 years of blood, sweat and putting bullets into development, we are very proud to announce Rebelz GangWar! The most brutal card game on the streets.
Rebelz GangWar is a simple, fast, strategic, funny and cool gangster-inspired card game starring over the top stereotypes posing as ruthless gangs.
We want to break the rules when it comes to timid and tame card games. The main goal in creating games at RebelzGames is to get everyone to sit down and play, even the young skeptics that think "card games are prehistorical."
We're certain that we have achieved our goal with GangWar.
Not convinced yet? We got Maxima, the Queen of the Netherlands, to play our games. If we can get her to play with us, we're 100% certain that you can get your friends to play too!
Each player chooses their own 'gang'. The objective is to destroy all the other gangs by first eliminating their properties (House-Business-Vehicle) and ultimately the gang itself. The last gang standing wins!
In GangWar there are no real friends or allies, and we handle the same rules as the ones on the streets. It's to take or to be taken!
Rebelz GangWar 'full bloody' edition played in real life with 12 players.
Rebelz GangWar is very easy to learn, but hard to master. You'll have to outsmart your opponents and always think one step ahead. Here is a quick summary of the gameplay. In case you want a more detailed explanation, scroll down to download the instructions or take a look at the tutorial video.

If you want an explanation of the mechanics, than watch this tutorial made by Board to Death crew! It goes into detail about the types of cards, and how they can be used in the game.
We first introduced GangWar to a big crowd during SPIEL 2018 in Essen(190,000+ visitors every day!). Watch the video below to get an impression of the event and to hear what people had to say about the game!
Rebelz Games was created in 2005 by Bulent and a friend of his, with the goal of creating games that bring people together to create fun and unique experiences. Since then the team has grown to a dozen people that develop games our, and friends that sometimes join the office to help out.
The Rebelz, which are the characters you can see in GangWar, are the heroes of Rebelz Games. They give color and personality to our games by representing certain subcultures with their own fun and exaggerated characteristics. Even though they're all different, all Rebelz are the same shape, which is our way of saying that everyone is equal. We want everybody to feel good when playing our games and able to have a laugh about themselves.
You can see a snapshot of the Rebelz, that helped out most in producing this game below. Anyways, we want to keep this short and about the game, we just hope that you will love our game as much as we loved making it.
Unfortunately, a company our size does not have much bargaining power against large retailers. Kickstarter is an amazing platform where people can invest in products they have faith in.
We chose to use Kickstarter to introduce our awesome game directly to the people, instead of having to find a big publisher or company to distribute our game.
The reason we launched this campaign is to spread awareness and to fund the production so we can sell it directly to you; the backers. We really want you people to enjoy this game as quickly as possible.
Risks and challenges
The quality of our product is very important to us, so we will do everything in our power to deliver you a perfect product. We have been testing and perfecting this game for some years now and we are confident that we have developed an awesome game! We understand however that nothing is perfect, so we will value your feedback from the comments and discuss it with the team.
We are deeply apologetic for the mistakes we have done with our first Kickstarter concerning the delivery of the product, but we have learnt a lot from our first project. We will make sure that it will not happen again.
We are certain we will deliver this product, because:
1. This time we have located a manufacturer who is also close to the the people handling the shipping, cutting down on costs and on the time to delivery. We have also included a bit of a buffer, in case of potential headaches that pop up on the way, which could delay the shipment. All-in-all we're certain that we will handle the shipping 100% professionally this time.
2. The product is almost fully developed (95%) and doesn't need much more fine tuning.
3. The product is made from cardboard and not made of PVC, which needed to be quality checked multiple times to ensure that the quality is up to par.
We have improved our preparations for any complications. We have learned that production, quality control and shipping bring unexpected challenges which we mean to handle professionally. We also have changed our approach to shipping. We have cut out the middleman, so your packages will be sent from the manufacturer directly to your home. We are certain that everyone will receive their order in August.
While there is no way to truly anticipate every problem that will come our way, we are confident that we have the skills and means to handle them. Our highest priority is that all our backers receive this amazing game on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
