About

MatchLord is a game in which a football match is played out with cards. The cards can be rotated to play different values. One player plays off one of the values whilst their opponent plays off the other.  As long as you have the correct cards you can keep playing. Attempts at scoring can be saved, cleared or end in a goal.  

The deck is played through twice, once for each half, and the scoring goals cards are keep out as a tally. 

There are wild cards to keep the pace moving. The cards are colour coded to their values and have football related terms as their headers and are adorned with pursuant words.

All money raised will be used to print and ship the game(s) to you.The final proofs are currently being printed and the rules are being sweetened.

MatchLord will be released under a Creative Commons license along with its graphics generation and test software packages.

Although this version is skinned to be (Association) Football with English motifs the game mechanics could be adopted for other instances e.g. American Football, or the graphics could be altered to be team shirts and players names. 

Risks and challenges

Delivering to "anywhere in the world" even with a Fulfillment company will be *interesting*.

Hopefully all the card motifs are suitable for all countries !
