About

We're game players.  We play games for fun and only for fun.  If a game isn't fun, we don't play it... not fun sounds like work.  Okay, so we decided we would make a game that was fun and a little crazy perhaps.  It had to be easy to learn but a challenge every time we play it.  That meant simple rules, crazy twists and turns, unexpected humorous endings and the complete knowledge that we didn't know who was going to win until the game was over.  

We started with an off-the-wall concept that was borderline nuts and built Vengeful Pigeons.  You like pigeons?  Don't like pigeons?  No matter.  In the game  you feed them, armor them, throw clean windows in their way and distract them with powerlines.  In the end a corked pigeon might blow or one may dive-bomb you but if you get covered in ... ah ... disgusting stuff you are out.  

You start with pigeons.  Our pigeons aren't your standard pigeon - some are cute, one was the result of a little girl messing with a science kit and genetics, another a dating site mix up,...  All good characters for a game.

Then you feed them.  Why? Because they're pigeons.  They love corn, habaneros... not so much.  Feed them enough and they do what they do - usually on a clean car.  But in this game these little dive-bombers target people - players, other players, you get the idea.  If you get hit, you're out. 

Sound easy?  It would be too easy if a few other characters weren't involved.  To to help you and maybe save you there are dogs, hawks, powerlines, corks (corks?), clean windows, all-knowing worms of composite pile 51, pigeon armor, Pigeon Swords of Greatness, ...  It gets a little crazy and as we have played hundreds of test games we've found there are always new ways to deliver an unwanted present or to stop one or to send one back or... it can get a bit strategic and always surprising.   

The game is easy to learn but hard to master.  It sounds a bit off the wall but at the heart of it is a real game with hidden twists. For people who love games like we do it has to be fun and new each time you play.  We think we've done that with Vengeful Pigeons.  

Extension Deck

For those who want to really dive right in and go to the next level, we've been working on an extension deck.  This adds new pigeons (Pigeonus Politicus, Darth Pigeon,...)  with their own unique traits as well as a whole new set of action cards (Pigeon Loving Hippo, Bird Flu,...) and some odd "feed".  We may be taking this extension deck a little off the wall so you will all be surprised at some of the characters and what they do - these may not be suitable for family play.  We promise with this extension deck you will never look at pigeons the same way again.

Thanks

It has been fun making the Vengeful Pigeons and we know you will enjoy playing it at home, at a coffee shop, on the road, where ever life may take you.  Best play it inside though where the pigeons can't find you.  Like the game, it may be best to give this as a little unexpected present to a friend.

Risks and challenges

We started this project some time ago. Initially, the work was on getting the rules and artwork the way we wanted it. Next, test decks were made to insure we could get high quality. Admittedly, the first decks needed work which we have now completed. One of the key and most enjoyable aspects of the process has been the game testing. We argued about the rules, reworked them, played, argued,... until we were just playing. We are never quite satisfied so we want to clean up the art a little more and and add cards but that won't delay us - we are already working through that.

We have been working with a company that can produce the decks in quantity at the quality we want and believe we are all set there. The biggest risk is if everyone loves the project so much that we have to ship a 100,000 decks. We will find a way but that might cause a delay.
