Review from Nohighscores.com :

"The game underlying it is not smart. It’s a dumb game, but it’s dumb in a good way, the sort of way that an overly playful rottweiler puppy is dumb, full of teeth and fluff and eagerness. It’s a game where you slap down cards, gloat and chug back beer. [...] Warage has balls."

______________

District Games, along with our partner Eagle Games, have launched this Kickstarter in the hope that you will find Warage as exciting and fun as we do and so that you will help us raise the funds to bring it to a larger audience, starting with you!

Warage is the ultimate turn-based strategy card game: role play, strategy and deck building merged together for endless adventure.

Each Hero starts the game with 100 Hit Points (HP) and in order to play any card you have to pay its cost in HP. During your round you can equip your Hero with the items you have in your hand of cards; and, you can attack your opponent(s)  through Physical and Magic Attacks.

Create your Hero choosing one of the Class cards and one of the Race cards available and construct your deck (48+ cards) making selections from any of the more than 110 existing cards. Deck building and "RPG attitude" together. Welcome to Warage!

Warage Description

Warage is a strategy, non-collectible card game. It was developed by a group of gamers that merged deck building and role-playing into an inexpensive, reliable, easy-to-play game that is also a strategically deep and complete card game for anyone. You will be able to play without being caught in chasing super-pricy cards or expensive events.

In Warage there are 3 Classes (Warrior, Paladin & Mage) and 4 Races (Humans, Elves, Orcs & Angels), each with unique abilities. You have all 327 cards that make up the Warage universe, which allow you to build your deck to create your strategy. You are the Hero! Equip yourself with the most powerful combination of weapons, armors, shields, spells, trinkets and other special equipment. Surprise your opponent with your Flash Effect cards and use the four Seasons to your advantage. Play to win in 1 vs. 1, 2 vs. 2 or team battle game. If you are the last Hero standing, you win!

We collected an amazing set of art for the game through crowd sourcing, and then developed and tested Warage with a lot of enthusiastic players over a period of 2 years. We printed Warage for the Italian market and then brought it to other European countries as well. We organized National-level tournaments and participated in all of the top-class Game Fairs in Europe (with the last one being in Essen, Germany, 27th Oct. 2013).

Our most enthusiastic fans are helping us by writing a book The Legends of Warage. We will let you know when the English language translation is ready!

One Warage super-fan wrote his master thesis on Warage's game play and is helping us develop a Warage iOS game with Artificial Intelligence. We hope to have this available sometime in 2014.

We can't wait to be in the US so that we can all play Warage together! We are very pleased that Eagle Games has partnered with District Games to distribute Warage in the USA.

Translated Extracts From Italian Reviews

“[…] I liked the game a lot, despite that I am more into RPG than card games. Warage games are very fluid and the fight mechanic is great. The Heroes’ equipment reminds me a lot of RPG inventory (such as in World of Warcraft, Skyrim and so on), which provides a unique sensation for a card game. As a former D&D player I have to say that the use of magic items, armors and spells is totally fascinating. – Giochi sul nostro tavolo http://pinco11.blogspot.it/2012/06/warage-recensione.html

 “[…] Warage has many interesting features with a super smart Hit Points system that creates a lot of déjà vu from the old card game world. Game strengths: simplicity and quickness, wide deck construction possibilities, good balance, smart and fresh game mechanics (e.g. card playing model and season deck), and a great multiplayer system.”- From La Tana dei Goblin http://www.goblins.net/modules.php?name=Reviews&rop=showcontent&id=5069

 “[…] The guys from District Games have been able to put together a high level team of illustrators and art directors simply through online announcements. Despite the unique and different style of each artist, the illustrations are characterized by a common theme, which gives the whole game a perfect visual unity. […] In regard to the mechanics, Warage is a really fun, fresh and malicious enough to make it an ideal game to engage both RPG lovers and card game experts.” - Houserules http://www.houseruleshr.com/2012/03/speciale-play-di-moneda-recensione.html#mor

“[…] The game could be defined as a Social Card Game: a card game that can be easily played in multiplayer, either in “guilds” or “all-vs-all” mode. In addition, you can integrate a custom iOS app to work both as a counter and a card itself.” - Mole24.it http://www.mole24.it/2012/04/13/warage-il-nuovo-social-card-game-nato-a-torino/ 

“Warage, a game bootstrapped thanks to crowdsourcing, is a 100% Italian project that puts together card game features (e.g. Magic: The Gathering) without the high cost associated to collectible card games. All you have to do is buy the main set and play!” – Wired (Italy) http://gadget.wired.it/news/accessori/2012/07/10/warage-ecco-come-nasce-un-gioco-di-carte-in-crowdsourcing-78345.html

“[…] The greatest feature of Warage is that there is no “mana” or other resources needed to cast your cards, since you only need to use your Hit Points. Warage is a simple, fun and quick game that will engage you both playing and constructing your own deck. Also, Warage is very modern, thanks to the iOS app available for free on the AppStore.” - PianetaFumetto http://pianetafumetto.blogosfere.it/2012/12/warage-un-bel-gioco-fantasy-tutto-italiano.html
