About

Welcome to the world of Zombie Plague (The Card Game).

Zombie Plague (The Card Game) is a two player game designed by Dan Leighly at Fireball Monster Games. Zombie Plague is a complete card game with everything needed to play included.

Please scroll down below the game components to read about the "Four Player" Information.

Zombie Plague (The Card Game) is set in a world where war has a price, and the price is the Plague. You command an army of warriors battling against forces and trying to avoid at all costs, the Zombie Plague. The characters involved are powerful and resourceful. They come from beyond the realm and have only one agenda, to defeat the opposing forces and rule the world.

The game art is uniquely themed towards a dark fantasy style, including a variety of creatures, monsters, and fantasy characters, setting a precise and exciting atmosphere for the players to enjoy.

My goal is to produce a top quality, compact and fun game that you will be proud to add to your collection.

I am offering the game at an extremely low price of $16.00, to the first 50 Early Backers, and  $17.00, to the next 50 Early Backers. Everyone after that can still get the game for a low price of only $18.00, and even less with some of the combo offers.

My hope is that a $16.00 starting price will encourage you to back this project early instead of waiting. The stretch goals that we reach will apply to every game that is manufactured, except for the "Exclusive KickStarter Reward" the Zombie Hunter card, which will only be available to KickStarter backers. This will be your only opportunity to get Zombie Plague The Card Game at this low price, and free shipping in the US.

Please take note: This campaign is only running for three weeks, as I feel confident that all goals can be reached within this time frame.

All of the pledge levels except one are for US and Canada Only. I have included an International pledge level to make the game available, and the shipping affordable to our International buyers.

Please join me in making this campaign a success! Thanks, Dan Leighly

Game Objective: You are the Commanding General of an army of warriors seeking to annihilate the enemy and rule the world. You will have the power of these warrior forces at your disposal, while battling against the enemy, and trying to avoid at all costs, the Zombie Plague. The only thing that can stop you now is The Zombie Plague.

Each player chooses a character card to play from their battle row and attacks the card directly across from them, using either the attack or range points of the card in play.

Battle: Any character card can battle any opponent’s card directly across from them.

When a player attacks, only the attacking player rolls the die and the opponent defends with the attack or range points on the card.

The losing player's card is collected by the winning player.

Turn Sequence: Each player on their turn can do the following. * Draw one new card from their draw deck and either replace any one card in their battle row, or add the card to a row with the same color power ball. If a player draws either a Hell Fire, or a Zombie card, a second card can be drawn. Any replaced cards go back to the bottom of the draw deck.

 **Combine any same color Power Ball cards in their battle row onto one space, (limit to 3 cards) and draw new cards for replacement. 

 ***Attack an opponent using either attack or range points. 

 ****Play a Zombie Plague card against an opponent. 

 *****End Turn.

Each player continues to take turns drawing, combining, and attacking opponents, and collecting points until one of the players runs out of cards. Once play is unable to continue, the players count up their points, and the player with the highest number of points wins the game.

CARD SAMPLE BELOW.

Why KickStarter, and Why such a low goal?  

1st. KickStarter is the way to go for someone like me who does not have a big following, or a large budget to work with. KickStarter has a huge following of like-minded people, indie designers, entrepreneurs, fellow gamers, and a very supportive community, that revolves around the idea that the little guy can be successful.  

People like to be a part of that success. I for one get a huge satisfaction from seeing a campaign that I helped back get funded, and then continue to gain support and grow. It is exciting, rewarding, and enjoyable to be a part of that.  

2nd. As far as the goal I set for this campaign. I want to be able to see my idea, my game, brought to life and in the hands of you, the backers. The only way for me to ensure that I could be successful with this was to evaluate what I really wanted to achieve. I set my goal low so that I could achieve funding easily, and be able to make sure that even if I did not receive a huge response, I could still be successful and get the game into all of your hands that helped back the project, instead of falling short, and seeing no one get anything.  

50 backers will get this project funded. 100 backers makes for a nice small print run of the game. Anything over and above these goals will be truly fantastic! Seeing my game in the hands of a few hundred people, well, that would really be something awesome.

Help spread the word and show your support by wearing an avatar.

Zombie Plague (The Card Game) Campaign : 

I have chosen to create one exclusive card as part of this campaign. I want to keep this game in perspective and do not want to add a bunch of stretch goals and add on's. The game is complete in and of itself, and there is no need for me to try to add more and more to it, just to try and raise more money. My stretch goals are based on Backers, not on a dollar amount per se. When we reach funding every game will include an "Exclusive KickStarter Reward" card the Zombie Hunter. I will reveal the particulars of this card when we reach the first goal.   

At 100 backers I want to also include one more special card the Zombie Queen. This card will add another dimension to the game, creating some interesting results during play.  

At 200 backers I will design new artwork to improve the game box overall look. I am hoping to achieve this goal easily with your support. My funding goal is set low so that we can easily reach funding, and continue towards the amount needed for a quality small print run. I believe that by funding early in the campaign that more backers will climb on board and support this project.

Many people like something extra that they can add to the game. Below is a Roll-Up Game Mat that I have included just for that purpose. Simply add $20.00 to your pledge to get this great item included with your game.

Also, here is a little Zombie Bling you can add to the game, a pair of Custom Zombie Plague Dice! Simply add $5.00 to your pledge to get this great item included with your game.

Dungeon Zone is a 2-4 Player Game by FireBall Monster Games.

The game is designed to pit player against player in a battle to build dungeons. Dungeon cards are used to complete dungeons and collect points. There are four different types of dungeons. Blue Stone, Cobblestone, Orange Stone, and Sandstone.

The object of the game is to collect points by building dungeons while stopping your opponent with Monsters, Creatures, Zombies, Warriors, and Dragons.The deck has 108 cards including four two-sided rule and game guide cards, 4 point tracker score cards, and 4 tracking gems.

 12 Doors is a 2 Player Game by FireBall Monster Games.

Each player has 6 locked doors. Players take turns drawing cards, rolling a die, unlocking doors, and placing gems. Each player must obtain the six correct keys to unlock their doors, and the correct colored gems. Players take turns back and forth drawing cards, rolling the die, placing gems, and unlocking doors until one player meets their win condition. 

The first player to meet their character card win condition wins the game.

Game components are listed below.
12 double sided door cards
36 acrylic gems in four colors
2 skeleton key cards
36 key cards
6 character cards
4 event cards
1 d-6 die
and the rules.

 A word from the designer:

With the initial pledge goal, the money will go towards printing the games, and the postage to ship the game to you, the backers. As we reach higher stretch goals, I will use the over-funding to improve the game through the added game cards, and new artwork, along with upgrading to a better quality game box, 

 I am keeping the product manufacturing in the United States. I want to do everything within my power to help this game become a success, but at the same time, I strongly believe in helping to rebuild the American Economy. I hope to achieve both goals with your help. 

I will be using The Game Crafter manufacturing and fulfillment services to ensure the games are produced at a high quality and in a timely fashion. The Game Crafter has already proven itself as a reliable source for game manufacturing and fulfillment with thousands of games already created and produced from their site, and with over a dozen other KickStarter campaigns using their services, including Villages, Japanese: The Game, and their very own successful campaign Village In A Box (Game Bundle). 

I really like this game, and I am confident that you will like it also. Although it is not quite a micro game, it is quite fun, and compact enough to carry and play anywhere. It is my goal to continue to create more games in the future, and with your help we can all share a little part of that dream. Thanks for your support.

Risks and challenges

What is that old saying? If at first you don't succeed...

As with any KickStarter project, there are always some risks involved. I have tried to reduce any risks by planning ahead. This is not my first KickStarter attempt, or my last. There is always the possibility that circumstances beyond my control could cause a delay in the estimated ship date. I will always be up front and honest with my backers through
frequent updates, should any problems arise.

I am, and will continue to be an avid Kickstarter backer. I enjoy being a part of the KickStarter and the Indie game community.

All of the game card artwork is complete, and I am working as we speak on some artwork for a new game box.

I decided to go back to the drawing board, and start over. I have done my homework and asked a lot of questions. I created a presence on Facebook, the Game Crafter forums, BGG, and through my Gaming Blog FireBall Monster Games. Many of my games have been redesigned and improved upon, based on hours of conversation and feedback from the gaming community.

I am not someone who quits when the going gets tough, or because of a few setbacks. I believe in myself, and my games, and I believe that this time I have taken the right direction in order for this KickStarter to be a success. I hope that you will agree to join me with this campaign.

The gaming community is exploding with all kinds of new and exciting games being created and discovered. KickStarter is making it possible for the average guy like me to share my ideas, and join the ranks of all the other Indie game developers on the horizon. This is what it is all about. making Dreams Come True. It is awesome!

Thanks for your support. Dan Leighly
