About this project

From Bulletproof Playtesters:  

"Plays in less than 30 minutes which our group really enjoys"

“It's like a faster, lighter version of the new Godfather game”  

“Sometimes it's fun to be a bad guy!”  

"We had a blast during our 4 player game"  

“The crime theme works really well”  

Bulletproof is a game for 2-5 players that blends tactics, strategy and luck as players compete to build criminal empires and can be played in under 30 minutes

Bulletproof takes place in a world much like our own, acceptably corrupt and full of opportunities for people willing to ignore the law. Every character is a criminal who uses corruption, bribes and many other secret weapons to interfere with other players, acquire territories, put money in their safe and build their criminal empires.

The primary mechanism in Bulletproof is set collection. In Bulletproof set collection is the only path to victory. However it also serves an important purpose as each territory card has a unique bonus which players can activate to gain advantages. Activating certain sets as opposed to others in conjunction with different action cards allows players to create interesting and powerful combos. In addition to set collection the game also uses hand management and variable player powers to create a very fun and strategic game with high replayability.  

Bulletproof was designed by Anahi and Rob Radke, cofounders of Double Eagle Games, based in Atlanta, GA. The game was illustrated by Natasha Khurs, Anahi Radke was responsible for the game's graphic design and the video was produced by Chris Zhang.

 

"It plays quick, it plays easy, it's themed very well, it is a mechanic that you all understand, it's a game that would stand on its own as a game of the night ... it's definitely worth your attention" - Boardgames & Bourbon Review

 "I really enjoyed the aspect of being able to play powerful combinations of actions or territory effects as well as the risks that came in playing a card versus cashing it in ... Overall, we all really enjoyed our time in the world of Bulletproof, and it is sure to be a game that will hit the table again!" - WYLD Gaming Review

            

 At the start of each game of Bulletproof the draw deck is shuffled, cards are placed in the black market and every player chooses a character.

 Each character has a unique secret weapon that can be used to create interesting combos and gain advantages to pull ahead of other players.

Each player is dealt 5 cards

After choosing a character each player is dealt 5 cards.  

Action cards can do several things such as finish jobs, steal territories, call in favors or can be stored in your safe to pay off debts. Territory cards represent the areas under the control of your criminal empire. All territories have unique abilities that are activated by “Finish a Job” action cards.  

Each player’s turn has two main phases, the Action Phase and Reload Phase.  

Claim a territory, fill your safe, buy a card from the black market or play an action card
Claim a territory, fill your safe, buy a card from the black market or play an action card

During the Action Phase players can take two actions including claiming a territory, filling their safe, buying a card from the black market or taking an action by playing a card into the discard pile.  

In the Reload Phase players take one card from the draw deck and their turn is finished.

Bulletproof has two add-ons available during this campaign, a high quality art poster and a playmat

The poster measures 18 x 24 and features 5 of the characters from the game as illustrated by Natasha Khurs. The playmat measures 14 x 24, is made of 1.5mm thick non-skid rubber backed material and will feature the character 75 Cents. The playmat is a great surface for playing a game of Bulletproof and really adds to the experience! 

To purchase these add-on's simply add $20 to your pledge amount, we will ask you whether you would like the poster or playmat via a survey once the campaign has ended. If you would like both check out the Master Assassin pledge tier, you will get a discount to buying each of these add-on's separately.

Stretch goals will be an important part of our Kickstarter campaign. The two primary goals that we have for our stretch goals are more characters and improved components. 

 We are excited to add more characters to the game and also asking our backers which characters they would like to see in the game! 

 For components we really want the stretch goals to take the game to a whole new level. The base game will have good component quality but we are very excited to completely “Deluxify” Bulletproof via stretch goals. 

The more goals that we hit the better this game will be! 

 

 

More stretch goals will be added as each goal is achieved.

  • Free shipping worldwide
  • All backers will receive a 30 day money back guarantee but if you back in the first 3 days you will receive a 110% money-back guarantee!
  • The earlier you join our project the more input you will have into upcoming stretch goals such as which characters we should add to the game.
  • The final game including shipping and all the stretch goals that we currently have planned is priced at a significant discount to MSRP. 
  • Double Eagle Games is a small independent publisher and this is our first game. Without your help during this campaign we won't be able to produce Bulletproof.

 Shipping is free for everyone, worldwide. 

In addition to free shipping we will also be offering friendly shipping to the USA, European Union (including U.K.), Canada and Australia meaning that you won't be paying any shipping or additional customs or tax charges to those regions.

We understand the manufacturers requirements so as soon as the campaign has finished we will be ready to send off our final files to begin manufacturing as soon as possible.
