About

Beer Hero is a drinking card game where you recruit some of the land's most legendary heroes...who also have a bit of a drinking problem. It'll be your job throughout the game to keep your heroes sober enough to keep on fighting...and to keep yourself sober enough to keep on playing!

Each game represents a battle between players who recruit and command a team of heroes. Players battle against one another using their Heroes’ attacks & abilities, as well by playing cards including Equipment, Spell, Fate, and Instant cards.

  • Recruit your team of Heroes, each with their own set of passives, abilities, and attacks that are affected by how drunk they are.
  • Battle against your opponent's Heroes through direct attacks or more subtly by getting them too drunk to fight!
  • Mitigate your Heroes' Drink Tokens, which represent how many drinks each Hero has had. Some Heroes fight better when drunk, others better when sober, and some have a sweet spot in-between.
  • Play cards from your hand to alter stats, give out drinks, and do some damage! You'll be able to cast spells, decide fate, and equip your Heroes with the land’s finest weapons and armor! But, you'll have to play strategically! You have to add a Drink Token to one of your Heroes for every card you play.

(There's even a Light version for those who don't drink a lot and Dry version where you don't drink at all!)

Beer Hero is a drinking game for tabletop gamers. It incorporates elements of fantasy, role-playing, strategy, and drinking satire.

You'll enjoy Beer Hero if you've ever played card games like Magic: The Gathering, Pokémon, or Yu-Gi-Oh!

Here are some of the game's Basic Concepts:

  • Heroes - Each Hero can be used once per turn and have their own set of passives, abilities, and attacks that are influenced by how many Drink Tokens they have.
  • Drink Tokens represent how many drinks each Hero has had and affect what attacks & abilities they can use.
  • Tracking Health - Heroes lose & gain health throughout the game. Heroes are eliminated when their health reaches zero.
  • Play Deck - A communal 42-card deck filled with Equipment Cards, Spell Cards, Fate Cards, and Instant Cards! On your turn, you can play these cards from your hand, but for every card you play, you must add a Drink Token to one of your Heroes.

  • Fight with dice! - Get bonuses from spells, equipment, and how drunk your Heroes are!
  • The Set-Up - Every game starts by with players picking the Game Type, the Drinking Requirements, and then Recruiting your team of Heroes.
  • Gameplay is turn-based & flows clockwise around the table. At the start of your turn, you'll have to choose whether to draw a card OR become the Designated Drinker, which allows you to remove Drink Tokens from your Heroes.

So start sober, cast some spells, get rowdy, and don't stop 'til you're the last one standing!

If you like the idea and want to play it with your friends then please back Beer Hero!  

  • It’s a drinking game that is actually a game!
  • All backers get at least a 20% discount with the earliest backers getting as much as 60% off the game’s retail value ($25 plus S&H).
  • All backers get early access to the Print-N-Play edition of the game and can give suggestions for how to tweak and improve the game before it goes into production!
  • Without your support, this game will never be available to the public!

The funding goal is set at $7,500. Why? Because that's what is needed to order all the game materials in bulk and get the game production under $20 per unit. If more people like the idea and contribute, then the game can be ordered in even larger quantities, allowing room for improvement to the quality of everything that comes in your box!

The game itself is 99% complete. But, we'd still love your feedback from testing the Print-N-Play Edition to make any final improvements and tweaks to the game before it goes into production.  

The production of the game is the final step. We've already talked with manufacturers and have price quotes, but we'll take a look at where we are at the conclusion of this Kickstarter campaign. We'll ask your opinion for things like what the final box design and Drink Tokens will look like.

With your support, we'll send off everything to our manufacturers to get everything produced and ready for shipping! All backers (excluding the digital delivery of Print-N-Play) will need to pay a flat rate shipping cost based on location.

Risks and challenges

At the end of the day, Beer Hero is just a game - there aren't too many risks & challenges. The biggest challenge was developing the game and play testing over the past few months and years (but, that was also fun, so no complaints). Now it's just a matter of successfully funding the game so we can order everything in bulk and give you the nicest things possible with your game. The more people that help fund the game, the better the quality of every part of the game! Extra proceeds will go towards other Kickstarter campaigns via http://kickingitforward.org. Cheers!
