Animal Hunters: Go, Catch 'Em All! Card game

                       HOW  TO  PLAY

The  card  game  setup
The card game setup

This  game  can  be  played  with  up  to  2-6  players.  Game  play  can  last  up  to  45  minutes.  There  are  72  cards  in  all  22  animal  cards  and  50  trap  cards.

Shuffle  both  the  animal  and  trap  cards  and  place  them  side-by-side  facing  down. 8  trap  cards  each  are  then  dealt  to  the  animal  hunters.  Animal  hunters  decide  who  goes  first  by  rolling  the  dice  or  other  methods  starting  the  game  play  from  left  to  right.

The  animal  hunter  then  plays  his  or  her  trap  cards.  They  are  only  allowed  to  play  up  to  6  trap  cards  at  their  then.

  After  the  animal  hunter  has  laid  down  his  or  her  trap  cards  they  then  turn  over  the  animal  card  from  the  animal  card  deck.  Animal  hunters  then  have  to  match  the  dice  (blue  and  red)  to  the  animal  match  numbers  on  the  animal  card  and  or  with  the  help  of  the  trap  cards  you  have  used.

Animal  hunters  also  have  the  help  of  the  black  dice  which  acts  as  a  substitute  and  can  be  used  for  either  the  blue  or  the  red  die  to  match  with  the  animal  match  card  and  or  with  the  trap  cards.

The  white  die  is  the  trap  die  and  it  determines  how  many  trap  cards  you  are  allowed  to  pick  up  at  the  end  of  your  turn.  Once  you  use  your  trap  cards  it  goes  back  into  the  trap  card  deck.

The  match  trap  cards  are  different  from  the  opportunity  trap  cards.  Playing  a  match  trap  card  automatically  gets  you  a  match  and  if  you  happen  to  play  both  match  cards (red  and  blue)  that  match  the  animal  match  numbers  your  trap  is  a  success  and  you  get  the  animal  counting  as  1  point.

 Opportunity  trap  cards  give  you  more  opportunities  in  catching  the  animal.  Rather  then  relying  solely  on the  dice  the  opportunity  trap  cards  opens  up  more  opportunities  within  the  red  and  blue  animal  match  number.

Sabotage  &  Second  Chance  Trap  Cards
Sabotage & Second Chance Trap Cards

 The  sabotage  trap  card  allows  you  to  sabotage  any  animal  hunter  that  has  caught  a  animal.  Playing  this  cards  allows  you  to  then  play  up  to  3  trap  cards  and  1  chance  at  rolling  the  dice.  If  the  saboteur  matches  the  same  numbers  with  the  dice  or  trap  cards  as  the  animal  card  the  saboteur  has  successfully  sabotaged  the  other  animal  hunters  catch.  The  sabotaged  animal  cards  then  goes  back  into  the  bottom  of  the  animal  cards  deck.

The second chance trap card allows you to roll the dice again if you were unsuccessful in catching to animal the first roll.

Animal  hunters  can  also  setup  and  play  this  card  game  by  spreading  out  the  animal  cards  like  the  card  game  memory.  The  rules  are  the  same  but  for  beginners  animal  hunters  can  play  their  trap  cards  AFTER  they  have  drawn  the  animal  card  rather  than  BEFORE  for  easier  play  as  you  can  see  the  animal  match  numbers  then  play  your  trap  cards  to  your  advantage.

The  animal  hunter  with  the  most  animals  caught  wins!

After some  testing, I'am ready to get into production. I'am asking for $5,500 to order the first edition of the game. This bulk order will help keep the price point low for customers while still having high quality, full color, 300 gsm cards

Cost:

While we would love to offer free shipping, there really is no such thing. Shipping is really expensive and we have tried to come up with pricing that accurately reflects our cost to get the game into your hands without creating a logistical nightmare on our side.

Delivery time:   

While we would love to get everyone their games at the same time, it is just not possible. There is a high likelihood that some areas of the world will get their games before others. Our commitment is to get the games ready and printed as fast as possible (I've already done a ton of the prep work). At the factory we will break out the shipments to each fulfillment company with instructions to them that they should begin shipping as soon as possible upon receipt.

Risks and challenges

I've spent 3 months testing gameplay, and seeking out printers/fabricators to ensure the best quality gaming experience for the lowest price. Our biggest challenge will be seeing whether this game is worth it. I hope you enjoy this game and support by pledging and sharing this project! thank you very much for your support!
