THE CARD GAME.
Buried Hippies is a present-day race to settle land, with local fighting and meandering mysticism.
This table-top card game puts 2-4 Players on a present-day race to build homesteads. Players start with a handful of cards to play on a shared surface. Players may cast both, protective and destructive cards, in competition with each other. Players may also cast mystical cards to stir things up, and modify the game experience. Hippie techniques can be utilized in the game - like planting forests of food, and living in the ground. The first Player to complete a homestead entirely WINS!
Buried Hippies the card game contains 102 playing cards (34 Gaia cards, and 68 Homestead cards), plus 6 instructional cards, within a tuck box.
THE ORIGIN STORY.
You could say that I have created a game with chickens, predators of those chickens, and people looking after said chickens. The game is filled with opportunities to act, but timing is key; and don't forget about politics! When I was traveling, I stayed at a place that inspires mysticism, but this place received a periodic scathing by street politics. The game started there. In my soft cover moleskine sketch book, I titled one page "Buried Hippies," and began brainstorming. Ponds, cabins, and productive landscape features came to mind. Government enforcers, weasel contractors, and sociopath visitors came to mind. I like designing structures, so I added dwellings for the people in the game. Plants are a hobby of mine, so I selected prized ones to use in the game.
This is a fun card game that contains earthly techniques to utilize in the marathon of building a homestead!
Risks and challenges
Glue me to this project! I will make timely exportation my priority. I feel solid about my Printer's proposed time-lines. The tuck box has yet to be designed. It will most-likely be designed by your's truly - as you're reading this... thanks!:) Each card started with a piece of blank white card-stock. Many peer-reviews later, a fun deck was born! None of the campaign Stretch Goals have started prior to this kick-start. If met, I will get busy with developers and artisans to create, and provide "deeper levels" of entertainment.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
