Super Powered Smash Masters! (Canceled)
Super Powered Smash Masters is the tongue-in-cheek superhero deck-building card game you always wanted, but were afraid to ask for.
Super Powered Smash Masters is a great way to share your nerdy interests with your friends and families, and then humiliate them with your superior smash mastery.
A game of Super Powered Smash Masters captures the feeling of classic comic book battles, with attacks and counters, superpowers, crazy plot twists, cosmic mayhem, and huge reversals of fortune. Just when things look their bleakest, a player can rally and pull off a big surprise win. Games are always full of upsets, face palms, and animated sounds of anguish.
Super Powered Smash Masters is bursting with fun characters, great artwork, and LOLs that might actually make you laugh-out-loud. How do we keep our costs down? We’ve injected our cards with really awful puns, and that’s the cheapest kind of humor there is!
*Disclaimer: card rules and card art not final and subject to change in the final product.
Ready to see some actual smashing? Are you nodding? Spiffy! Check out the gameplay video to see the game in action.
We are Dark Unicorn Games, a small team of creators with decades of game development experience, and we've also created independent comics. As comic fans and parents, we were inspired to create a collectible card game that would appeal to EVERYONE, while at the same time furthering our secret agenda of sharing our love of comics and card games with our families.
We gathered in secret within our secret lab and set to work. We would design the superhero collectible card game our troubled world so desperately needed, a game that would protect the weak, cherish the love, and bring the painful fist of justice to the wicked world of collectible card games! It would be full of humor, with streamlined gameplay to appeal to kids and newcomers, and a range of deeper strategies to engage grown-ups and collectible card gamers. -
The basic design was really coming together, but then... something went horribly wrong! There was a mysterious explosion at the lab, and at exactly the wrong moment, our experimental cards were bombarded by cosmic zomg-omega rays!
Our intentions were good. We set out to bring something positive and fun and wholesome into the world.
If we get the funding we need, we have some super massive plans for what comes next. We're thinking about the long game, folks. Our ambitious eyes are trained on a distant horizon a hundred years into the future, a time when calling someone a “Smash Master” is not only un-derogatory but synonymous with “total hottie”. In this future world, not only does everyone cosplay as their favorite SPSM heroes, but they also coswork and cossleep in the same non-derivative hero costumes we all love.
How do we bring about this utopia? Baby steps, dear friend! We've already started designing expansion packs for Super Powered Smash Masters. The world of SPSM is growing!
SUPER POWERED SMASH MASTERS is a true deck-building collectible card game, and we're ready to feed your hunger for new cards -- yummy, trans fatty, sugar-coated cards.
And of course, we want to take the team on the road and do the whole convention circuit, and we hope to run into you there!
Shipping charges will be determined after the campaign concludes. Your location and the weight of your final order will have an impact on the final cost.
We know it's a bummer to see additional charges after your initial order, and Dark Unicorn Games is very grateful for your understanding and patience. If by chance we're able to hire a teleporter mutant during the campaign, your delivery will be free of charge.
Here are some rough estimates global shipping costs for a single reward item:
- USA: $8-$15, $25-30 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico
- CANADA: $15-$20
- UK: $10-$20
- LATIN AMERICA: $40-60
- EUROPE: $10-$40
- ASIA: $25-$30
- AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND: $20-$30
Risks and challenges
The design of our first series is complete, and we've entered our final testing phase. We already have some great card illustrations “in the can”, but there are many more cards yet to complete.
We hope to bring you gorgeously-illustrated cards from a truly amazing assortment of talented comic book artists. As you might guess, professional artists are always in high demand, so it’s difficult to predict scheduling issues that we might run into before we go to print.
Also worth mentioning: the potential "risks and challenges" (i.e. apocalyptic chaos) of dealing with printers and all the sundry shipping woes that all Kickstarter campaigns face.
Know this: we are passionate, we love you, and we are highly motivated to get those SPSM cards in your hands so that you can start clobbering your friends, level entire cities, and DESTROY THE UNIVERSE!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
