About

We appreciate you stopping by to check out the game we hope to make a reality with your help here at Kickstarter... Classic Flip™!

As enthusiastic gamers who love all types and genres of games, the three goals we had in mind when we created Classic Flip™ were:

  • That it be portable and easy to set-up so that you can get playing quickly;
  • That it be fun to play but include a depth of strategy to help off-set the high impact that "luck" often has on many card games; and
  • That it be inexpensive so that a substantial financial investment would not be required to purchase a deck or two.

Classic Flip™ is designed for players age 8 and up, takes 20-30 minutes to play, and is one of those games you can play on a casual game night with friends and family or host in a tournament where strategy and cunning prevails!

Have you or any of your friends ever made up your own "house rules" or just modified a rule or two from one of your favorite games just to see if the change would add an amazing new twist to the game? Well, that's how Classic Flip™ got its start!

We started to wonder:

  • What if a No Limit Hold 'em Poker player could reach out and snag one of the community cards off the flop and add it to their hand?
  • What if you could steal a card from each of the other team's hands in the middle of a game of Euchre?
  • What if you could swap your Uno® hand with any other player at the table?
As you'll see in the description of the game below, Classic Flip™ has rules and action cards that enable you to do the kinds of things you've probably wished you could do in the middle of a card game... But unless you played by your own set of rules, you just weren't allowed to do them!

But that's not even the best part... If this Kickstarter campaign receives the funding necessary to bring Classic Flip™ to the world, it will be up to you to determine what rules and action cards we keep and which new ones you dream up and we include in the game in the future. Our hope is that the game will continue to morph and grow even more entertaining to you and your friends as you share your ideas.

So, launching the inaugural version of the game here on Kickstarter is the goal - And we hope that you will join us today by backing Classic Flip™!



Classic Flip™ includes 54 "flippable" cards as follows (one deck):

13 Red/Green cards - 2 to Ace
13 Blue/Pink cards - 2 to Ace
13 Purple/Orange cards - 2 to Ace
7 Gold cards - 2 to Ace
8 Action Cards:
   1 - Draw/Take
   1 - Draw/Steal
   1 - Draw/Block
   1 - Swap/Reboot
   1 - Chaos/+Turn
   1 - 2X
   1 - 7 >>> 10
   1 - Any

Note: One Classic Flip™ deck is ideal for a 2 to 4 player game. For a 5 to 8 player game, just add a second deck.

Classic Flip™ has three variations to play:

  • Classic Rules - Collect five of a kind in each round and score points. Points accumulate and the first player to reach 200 points wins the game. See the full "Classic" rules here.
  • Poker Rules - Collect the best poker hand possible in each round and score points. Points accumulate and the first player to reach 200 points wins the game. See the full "Poker" rules here.
  • Poker with Action Cards Rules - Collect the best poker hand possible in each round and score points. Points accumulate and the first player to reach 200 points wins the game. See the full "Poker with Action Cards" rules here.

Please be sure to check the Classic Flip™ web site at flipcardgame.com for detailed game play videos!
