About this project

In Slaughterama, you are a vigilante hero who sets out to rid the land of evil, while also acting as clerk of your very own medieval store called a Bazaar. Traverse a unique board made up of tiles and fight a variety of demented foes. Once defeated, rob them of their treasures and use them to buy weapons and magic at opponent’s shops. There are also traps to avoid, the risk of becoming a zombie, snipers to watch out for, & magic portals that open up as the game progresses. This is a multi-player game, in fact, the more people playing...the more insane it becomes!

Slaughterama is a new, innovative table top game that is easy to learn yet quite challenging to win. There’s a good balance between luck and strategy, and the gameplay is fun NOT frustrating. With a variety of game mechanics at work, Slaughterama offers an engaging experience that is unlike anything else on the market today.

Amount of Players:  4 players (more by adding future deckpacks)

Object:  Kill all 10 of the monsters in your deck before your opponents kill the ones in theirs.

Setting:  A “medievalish” alternate universe where anarchy & chaos go for breakfast.

Duration:  Customizable.  A normal 4 player game on average takes about 90 minutes.

Game Mechanics:  Dice rolling, pawn moving, simple RPG fighting system, card playing, buying/selling goods.

Slaughterama has been play tested and refined for the past three years.  I can humbly say that today; it plays flawlessly.

THE CONSTRUCT OF SLAUGHTERAMA

Slaughterama is played with themed deckpacks, each with a unique Icon.  All deckpacks include the following:

Here are descriptions for each of the four decks in the core game:

The core game also includes three dice (two 6-sided & one 20-sided die), and a rule book.  All will come packaged in a stylish box similar in size and appearance to the one below.

THE OFFICIAL SLAUGHTERAMA WEB STORE

Aside from introducing the core game to the world, the success of this campaign will help me launch an official Slaughterama Web store where you would be able to buy all sorts of themed deckpacks.   The four above are finished & an additional 6 are near completion (see information page).

If things go really well, I ultimately wish to offer custom decks on the website where you get to pick your own ten monsters and treasures as well as choose/upload your own Icon. The game’s construct is also perfect to work with other popular franchises like stated in the video. I’ve done a lot of research on how to pursue this, and plan to when the time is right. There are also a few Add-on & Expansion ideas in development…but I need to see how well this campaign goes first. (Don’t put the cart before the horse right?)

STRETCH GOALS

I have little in the way to stretch goals which everyone who pledges 40 or more will get.  At 30,000 I would like the the nicest sturdy box budget will allow with a Canvas like finish.  If I succeed in making 50,000 or more I will try and upgrade the pawns to be small miniatures instead of cardboard stand-ups.  You can also guarantee one of them will resemble 'Ash' from Army of Darkness because that would just be groovy!

Also, I want to be up front and honest with everyone about the goal of getting the game by Christmas as stated in the video.  This kickstarter campaign was late in posting by about a month so, I will do everything in my power to meet the x-mas time frame but it could be sometime in January till things get shipped out. 

THANK YOU!

Thanks for taking the time to read about Slaughterama.  I hope you make a pledge and help me make my dream a reality.

Sincerely, 

Rob Westrick

Risks and challenges

I have already been talking to a print manufacturer I’ve used in the past for other smaller endeavors, so I don’t foresee any major hurdles. But just in case, I do have a backup printer I can use. Whatever funds don’t go to production or constructing the webstore will go to acquiring/commission new original artwork to complete/create future deckpacks.
