About

 Do evil, that good may come in this fast-paced, take-that card game for 2-8 players.

From the team who brought you SERPENTS, comes Pope or Nope!

His Holiness Pope Peter II lies on his deathbed. You are among the few Cardinals he trusts to serve as his successor, but you have to earn it by performing good deeds. To complicate things, the other Cardinals won't go down without a fight; they'll do everything they can to sabotage your every move. Pay them back in kind.

Before each round, each player is dealt 5 cards. Players play a numbered DEED card to begin. Players then take turns playing one card at a time, or passing. Sabotage deeds in play with CROSS cards, or redeem crossed deeds with deeds of higher value. Additional strategies are created with the use of action cards, or the rare and powerful POPE and NOPE.

When all players pass in succession, the round is over and successful deeds are awarded a point. The first to 5 points wins and may don the Papal Mitre.*

Risks and challenges

This is our second Kickstarter campaign. Last October, we successfully funded SERPENTS, a customizable hidden-identity card game, which we have just shipped out to our backers.

While production of POPE OR NOPE will be a little more involved, we've partnered with some great companies to ensure everything goes according to plan. We are confident that we can provide to you a finished product that meets all your expectations.

As always, we will keep our backers informed throughout the process leading to delivery day. If any surprises occur along the way there, you'll know about it.

Thanks for reading.
Fraternalmente,
Vector Arcade
