About

 

UPDATE: The Print and Play has just been released! Click here to see the game: http://www.havoccardgame.com/uploads/Havoc_Card_Game_PnP.pdf

Havoc Card Game is an RPG card game, developed by Intense Gaming Logic LLC, that revolves around the story between a Hero and a Villain. One player plays as the Hero, and the other plays as the Villain. Each have their own unique mechanics and rule sets. Battle as the Villain with your arsenal of Hexes, Traps, and Minions or as the Hero with your armory of Attacks, Supplies and Equipment.

The game is divided into two phases: The Encounter Phase and the Dungeon Phase. The Encounter Phase is a deck-builder, where the Villain studies new Hexes, acquires new Minions and Traps, begins building his / her dungeon, and Wreaks Havoc through the lands. In the mean-time, the Hero is gaining new Equipment and Supplies, training to learn new Attacks, and saving the villagers from the havoc that the Villain causes.  

In the Dungeon Phase, the Villain and Hero have become aware of one another. The Hero takes the deck that he / she built and goes up against the dungeon deck that the Villain has built. If the Hero makes it through the dungeon alive, the Hero wins and defeats the Villain. If the Hero is defeated, then the Villain is victorious.

There are several aspects that we feel make Havoc unique. First, there is the game’s dual deck-builder and competitive nature. Second, the Villain builds two decks simultaneously, this adds an extra level of strategy. Favoring the building of one deck over the other has ramifications in how the game plays out. Finally, each player has a unique shop row, and both rows are face down. We feel that this provides better immersion for players. In order to prevent cheating, we do provide revealer cards which allow players to show the cost of cards but not the cards themselves.

Havoc includes 152 Cards which were picked as the best, most balanced cards out of our 400 alpha cards.

There are many reasons why we feel you'd be satisfied with backing our game, but here are just a few of the best reason:

  • This is a stable project. Havoc Card Game is no longer just an idea, it's already reality. We have already developed the game, tested manufacturing, and tested fulfillment. We demoed and got feedback from Gen Con, Colossalcon, and Glass City Con. We just need your help to manufacture a large quantity of this game so we can get it to you!
  • Once funded, we have some great stretch goals, exclusive to Kickstarter backers.
  • The game is cheaper now than it will be after the Kickstarter campaign ends, so you'll be getting a special Kickstarter Backer price. 
  • By backing Havoc Card Game's Kickstarter, you'll get the game before anyone else; it will not be available for retail until after our backers have received their copies of Havoc Card Game. 
  • Most importantly, you should back this project because it's a great game! We aren't here for fame or money. We are here for you, the gamers, and we want to bring you the best quality entertainment that we possibly can through Havoc Card Game.

 

 

If you are interested in how to play Havoc Card Game, you can read the full rules here.

Example of Play Area

For those of you looking for a multiplayer experience, don't worry. We will have multiplayer rules up on the site by Feb 2017. We are currently planning on Havoc supporting either 2 or 4 players.

We realize that some backers like to order multiple sets. A second set will also be required for 4 player games. All you need to do to add another set. Back at the highest level that you are ordering and add $25 to your pledge for each additional set that you want.

When ordering multiples sets, you get a discount on shipping, so teaming up with your friends for one big order can be a great way to save on shipping.

US SHIPPING: Add $3 in shipping per additional set ordered.

For example, living in the US if I wanted to back for 3 copies of the game with the media package, I'd select the $50 Media Pack, which includes one set of the game. This, with Kickstarter's automatic shipping would come out to $60 with shipping ($50 for the Media Pack + $10 shipping). To add the other 2 copies that I want, I would add $50 for the games (they are $25 / game) + $6 extra for shipping ($3 per game), so my total would be $116 ($50 + $10 + $25 + $3 + $25 + $3). If you have any questions about your pledge feel free to ask on the comments, or contact us on our social media!

CANADA & EVERYWHERE ELSE SHIPPING [Max 3]: Add $10 in shipping per copy ordered. 

Contact us with your specific shipping location if you would like to order more than 3 copies.

It took us over a year to get where we are now, and you can read about that here. The big question though is, "Where do we go from here?"

After the Kickstarter campaign is complete and all backers receive their copy of the game (by the end of this year), we are hoping to sell Havoc on Amazon. We also have local stores who have pledged to sell our game after the Kickstarter. The better we do, the more game stores we can expand into. Help us put Havoc on your local selves. If you would like you can also order it from The Game Crafter

We also plan on the game itself growing. After the Kickstarter we plan to starting work on several expansions. Some of which we are already working on and of course with these expansions will come rules for constructed play.

Make your mark in an adventure between good and evil! Will you triumph or get wrecked? As the story develops, the game will develop; the Hero and the Villain will become aware of each other. Our game has many different combinations keeping it fresh and exciting!

Thank you for your support! We loved making Havoc and we couldn't do it without the help of Kickstarter backers like you!

Hello everyone! I am Chris, the creator of Havoc Card Game and the CEO of Intense Gaming Logic, LLC. I have been a passionate gamer for many years. Whether it's video games, card games, board games, etc., I enjoy them all, and especially with friends. Some of my favorite games in particular include: Havoc (Duh!), D&D 3.5 (the only edition even worth playing IMAO), Guild Wars 2, Magic the Gathering, and Star Realms. Of course, I play many more games than this. My steam library exceeds 300 games, I have over 100 console games, at least 50 portable console games, closets full of board / card games, a giant chest filled with D&D materials, and a big bookshelf completely dedicated to my MTG cards (that doesn't even include my commons and uncommons). I guess the reason that I have so many different games is that I love to try new games all the time. It is for this reason that when I came up with the idea of Havoc, I pushed myself to go for it.

I am Nikki, a co-designer of Havoc Card Game and partial owner of Intense Gaming Logic, LLC. I have been a passionate gamer for many years, starting with League of Legends. After that I fell in love with all types of game including: card games, board games, computer games, etc. I also love to play D&D, Guild Wars 2, Magic the Gathering, Star Realms, and of course, Havoc. When my husband told me about his idea for Havoc, I thought he was crazy but decided to give him my full support and help. It was a lot of fun to get in on the ground floor of creating a game and seeing it all the way through. All we need is help from you, the Kickstarter community, to get our amazing game printed and into peoples homes so they can enjoy Havoc as much as we do.

We also want to give a big thank you to Thomas Royko (our head of Public Relations), Zuhria A., Ravenmore, and Justin Cook for all of the wonderful card art assets, The Northern Passage HB for the awesome logo design, Reactor Energy for the great video template, and  Emma_MA for the awesome music to our video. Without these people, this project would've never been possible.

Risks and challenges

Our backers are going to get an awesome game, delivered quickly. We have done a couple of test prints with our manufacturer already and expect a fast turn around.However, like with any game, there is always a risk of unforeseen delays. We have done our best to minimize those risks.

Our game is mostly done at this point. In order to create this amazing game, we had to do a TON of design, development, art acquisition, and balancing. All of that is very expensive, and that money is already spent. We just need the Kickstarter community's help with printing costs.

Given what we have invested in this game already, there is a risk that even though we deliver the game, we may never make back all the money we invested to create it. Our funding goal is far below what it would take to even break-even. We have a luxury though, that other gaming companies don't: we don't care about profits. We know we created something special that we all get so much enjoyment out of; now we want to spread that entertainment to all of you!
