About

Cool as a Cucumber is a tactical card game about, you guessed it........cucumbers. You pick your cucumber avatar from the 20 available, remember to pick one that suits your current emotional state (keep it safe, you bruise easily).

Players take turns drawing cards and seek help from the Fruit and Vegetable cards to keep your cucumber from being Sliced, Diced, Chopped, Peeled, Juiced and Spiralized. Each Fruit or Vegetable card has a unique ability. You can re-arrange the top 3 cards of a deck, place a You've Been Served card anywhere in either deck or create a salad with multiple cards.

The game gets stressful from start to finish especially when you are taking all your friends cards as they start to clench a fist aimed at you. 

For 2-8 Players.
Ages 12+
Cool as a Cucumber, like every game, it takes a couple of playthroughs to understand the rules and really get into the game. Playing time is 15-20 minutes.

Rules can be found at www.asacucumber.cool/rules - Video tutorials to follow.

Videos were made with people who are hard of hearing in mind.

Risks and challenges

There was only 1 major Risk and Challenge - It could have all faltered here. Asking my wife to spend all our savings on a Card Game about cucumbers. After she saw the first image of Average Joe, like me, she fell in love.

From production to your door is all covered, so choose your reward, pledge away and sit back, relax and wait for your extended cucumber family to arrive.
