In Table Fighter, both players have a deck of six cards that they arrange before playing, and a super card which sits face up on the table. Because each player chooses the order of their deck, there is no randomness created in shuffling. Table Fighter is a fast paced fighting card game for 2 or more players. It's easy to pick up and play, but has enough depth to keep even the most skilled players hooked. Table Fighter is inspired by traditional fighting games: you are rewarded for anticipating what your opponent will do and your skill completely replaces randomness.
Players can secretly rearrange their decks mid-game using a "betting" mechanic to super-charge their moves and avoid their opponent memorizing their order. The order of a player's deck is always a direct result of their actions.
In Table Fighter, the winning card is determined by a rock-paper-scissors interaction. However, Table Fighter breaks the rules of a standard rps- Table Fighter's rock-paper-scissor's is unbalanced, that means there is always a statistically "best" and "worst" option in your hand. This impacts not only your decision making, but also your ability to predict your opponents decisions. Sometimes doing the "worst" thing is the best way to outwit your opponent.
Table Fighter is for everyone age 8 and up. The game is very easy to learn, but has enough depth to still be exciting after hundreds of games. Because of the simple rules and quick set up, even kids can pick up and start playing table fighter in a matter of minutes.
