About this project
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!
The Base Set includes ALL the cards in our first release. There are no random cards - you get EVERYTHING! Enough cards for a four-player game session. See?
*Disclaimer: card rules and card art not yet final.
Ready to see some actual smashing? Are you nodding? Spiffy! Check out the gameplay video to see the game in action.
Here's a video review from Undead Viking:
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 streamlined superhero-themed card game that would appeal to EVERYONE.
We gathered in secret within our secret lab and set to work. We would design the superhero 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 and unforgiving world that is your tabletop! A game full of humor, with streamlined gameplay to appeal to kids and casual gamers, with a range of deeper strategies to engage seasoned card gamers.
If we get the funding we need, we have some super massive plans for what comes next. Imagine a future 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, with new heroes, new strategies, and new ways to play.
We're trying to keep shipping as simple as possible, so we are using flat rates for different regions. Rates may increase for larger (heavier) orders:
- US - $12
- Canada - $15
- UK & Europe/ Australia - $25
- Rest of the World - $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.
It's common for printing and shipping complications to rear their ugly heads after Kickstarter campaigns, but we're ready to smash those complications in their ugly heads and/or ugly rears!
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
