About

The Multitude Game Set™ combines the Strategy of Cards with the Excitement of Dice. This unique game set contains 72 Cards and 50 Dice. 

The unique feature of this set is that all of the games use both Cards and Dice. Each game has rules and game play exclusive to this Game Set.

Bring 50 games with you anywhere.

There are 50 different games in the Game Rules Booklet included in this set. The box is small and easy to bring with you to game nights, poker nights, parties, camping, family gatherings, or just hanging out with friends. Most of the games are short, so you can play a few to several different games in the time it takes to play one typical board game.

Many of the games in this set are variations of popular card games which have been adapted to integrate dice into the game. There are also some variations of popular dice games which have been adapted to integrate cards. There are also original cards and dice games created to utilize the versatile features of this Game Set.

This exceptional Game Set also includes Board Games which use custom Board Game Cards and dice. Some of the board games are inspired by classic board games and some are original.

There are even some games that use manual dexterity. These games use dice rolling skills where accuracy is used to score points.

The games vary in strategy from simple family games that children can play to highly strategic games and wagering games similar to the classic casino games.

See the Multitude Games list below for a description of some of the games in the Game Rules Book. The complete rules for the games are on the MultitudeGameSet.com website. More games that will be in the Game Rules Book will be added to the website as the campaign continues.

The Game Set includes a 2 piece cardboard game box, 72 Poker Size Cards, and 8 large Game Board/Score Cards. These game components will be printed by MPC (MakePlayingCards.com), one of the top high quality playing card printers used by the world’s best custom playing card designers. The Cards will be printed on their highest quality 330 GSM Black Core playing card stock with their Superior Smooth finish. The 2 piece box has the rigid cardboard construction used for quality board and card game packaging.

There are also 50 12 millimeter Dice included in the set. There are 8 sets of 6 Dice in 6 different colors and 2 black Dealer’s Dice. The Dice will be supplied by Chessex, the world’s premier high quality Dice manufacturer. The 6 Dice in 6 different colors is called a Dice Set.

The Game Rules Booklet will be printed on the same high quality coated paper stock used in high end magazines.

The components included in this Game Set are shown in the diagram below:

This Game Set is designed so that each Card matches one side of the Dice in a Dice Set. There are 6 Color Suits in each Deck which match the 6 colors of the 6 Dice in a Dice Set. There are 6 Ranks in each Color Suit which match the 6 Sides of each Dice. Most of the Multitude Games use this design function or “Game Mechanic”.

There are 8 large Board Game Cards / Score Cards included in this game set. One side of the Cards is the Board Game Card and the other side is the Score Card. The Board Games in the Game Rules Booklet use a combination of the Board Game Cards to create a game board. The instructions for the Board Games will show how to configure the Board Game Cards. Placing a dice or a coin on the Score Cards is an easy way to keep score and allow players to see the scores of all of the players.

For more information about each of the components and how the Game Set works, see the How the Game Set Works page on the MultitudeGameSet.com website.

More information and links to the Twitter and Facebook pages can be found on the MultitudeGameSet.com website.

This special game set was designed by me, Randy Coffey, a graphic designer located in Southern California. The design of this game has evolved over the last year going through 3 major changes and dozens of minor improvements. As you can imagine, hundreds of hours have gone into creating the concepts and rules of the 50 games. 

The design of the cards have gone through dozens of versions to create a card design that maximizes function and legibility. For example, there is type describing the color of each card, this helps the 10 percent of the male population that has some level of color blindness.

Some of the 50 Multitude Games:

Below are descriptions of some of the games included in the Game Rules Book. More games will be added during the campaign. For the complete rules for theses games visit the website MultitudeGameSet.com.

Easy Strategy Games:

FILCH - In this easy to play game players score by stealing, or filching, other player’s cards.  Players filch cards by rolling dice and matching cards.  Players choose which other player’s cards they want to try to steal.

PREMONITION - This game is a simple ESP Test.  Players attempt to predict the number that a dice will roll and which color and number the next card in a shuffled deck will be.

PASSING THE BUCK - A fun and unpredictable game where cards are moved from player to player based on the roll of the dice.

TURNOVER - An easy to play dice rolling game where players try to roll 3 or more of a kind.

Moderate Strategy Games:

CRAZY CARDS - This game is similar to the classic card shedding game Crazy Eights.  Players roll dice to determine the Wild Cards.

FRAUD - This game is inspired by the classic card shedding and bluffing games Cheat and Bullshit.  The first player to get rid of all of their cards wins, and they will probably have to lie to do it.

KNOCK OUT - This game is similar to the classic card adding game Thirty One.  The player closest to the Goal Number using cards of only one color without going over wins.  The Goal Number is determined by rolling dice.

MONOTONE - Players exchange cards in their hands with a pool of 6 cards available to all players.  The first player to get 6 cards of the same color or rank wins the game.  Strategy can be tricky because any player can clear some or all of the cards in the pool on their turn with a dice roll.

SIXTY SIX - In this elimination game players add cards to a stack that creates a total.  If a player adds a card that causes the total to go over a Goal Number, that player is eliminated.  The last player left after all of the other players have been eliminated wins the game.

TRADE YOU - In this game players lose a dice if they have the highest or lowest hand.  The last player with dice after all of the other players have lost all of their dice wins.

High Strategy Games:

BLIND AUCTION - In this high strategy game players bid for card and dice combinations using a face down card.  The player with the highest card wins the combo.  The player with the most points in the cards and dice combinations they won after 6 bids wins.

DUET DUEL - This trick taking game similar to Whist or Bridge is played with 2 teams of 2 players each.  The team with the most cards after 18 tricks have been played wins the game.  There are also optional rules for 6 players to play as 3 teams.

TOTAL WARFARE - In this card battle game comparable to the card game War, players try to win hands by having the highest total of a rolled dice and a face down card.  The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins.

Wagering Games:

DOUBLE DOWN - In this betting game players wager on combinations of dice that can be seen and cards that can’t be seen.

STAND OR BUST - In this game, which is inspired by Blackjack, players press their luck betting against the dealer.  The Goal Number, which is like 21 in Blackjack, can be anywhere between 18 and 24.

BETTER’S DOZEN POKER - In this Poker game players make the best 5 card Multitude Poker Hand they can from 6 cards and 6 dice.

DOUBLE DICE DRAW POKER - In this version of Draw Poker dice are rolled to determine how many cards players can exchange to make a better Multitude Poker Hand.

POT LUCK POKER - In this Poker Game players use 6 community dice which are similar to the River in Texas Hold’em.  Players make the best 5 card Multitude Poker Hand using the community dice and the 2 cards in their hand.

Board Games:

FOUR STRAIGHT - This 2 player abstract strategy game is basically a more sophisticated version of Tic-Tac-Toe.  Like other ‘In-A-Row’ type games, the first player to fill 4 squares in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally wins the game.

OPPOSITE TRACKS This game is based on Dutch Backgammon.  Both players race to move all of their dice onto and off of the Game Board while trying to knock their opponents dice back to the starting line.

PIPS AND PAWNS - This 2 person abstract strategy game is a variation of chess, but uses dice instead of the traditional chess pieces.  The dice have different movement possibilities based on the number of pips on the top of the dice.

Dexterity Games:

PITCHING DICE - In this dice rolling skill game players attempt to land their dice on cards to score points.

STRAIGHT AND TRUE - Players roll dice along 6 cards to try to get the highest score by rolling the farthest without going off of the cards.

Stretch Goals will be added as the campaign progresses.

I hope you will consider supporting this exceptional Game Set.

Risks and challenges

The risks for this project are minimal. The manufacturer of the cards and box, MPC, is a well established high quality printer of playing cards. The dice will be provided by Chessex, the premier dice manufacturer in the world. The fulfillment should go smoothly as the only manual process, other than putting the games into the shipping boxes, is placing the dice into one of the white tuck boxes.
