About this project
Bedlam is a crazy, frightening place. There are freaky Enemies everywhere, not to mention life’s little Ordeals, like when you Have To Stop Armageddon. To make matters worse, your psychotic opponents try to screw you over all the time. And with 180+ unique cards in the mix, be assured that every game will play chaotically different from the last.
Bedlam has the hilarity and ‘take that’ of Munchkin, give-and-take sliders akin to Arkham Horror, and the mind-bending damage control of – well, Bedlam! - as well as a bunch of original features and mechanics that will drive you crazy. Bedlam truly exercises your brain and competitive nature as well as testing your play skills against your friends.
For those who just want the cards, the Basic Tier is perfect for you. If you want niiiiice playing surfaces and custom counters + laser cut sliders, check out the Deluxe Tier. And for the true collector, the Ultra Deluxe Tier comes with a one-of-a-kind hand finished laser etched box, as well as a Kickstarter-exclusive Buddy card that stars YOU in a photo you send us – yes, you are ‘The Believer’! You nutter! If you love looking at yourself in the mirror then go for the Vanity Tier and be immortalised forever with your likeness drawn by our artist in every copy of the game.

On a typical turn a player will face an Enemy or Ordeal, and try to beat it by using their Slider to make their Courage and Sanity greater than what they are facing. Beating Enemies and Ordeals earns you Rewards as well as Heart and Mind points. Once you have earned enough points, you win the game.
During turns you can place one of each type of Stuff card on the table in front of you. Stuff cards are Weapons, Buddies or Things. Your Stuff can help you, or be used to mess with your opponents.

Risks and challenges
Some parts of the product will be shipped, but we'll keep our backers informed if any delays occur. Especially ones caused by the Kraken.
It could be that the game is too awesome. If so, the universe might implode.
We are sure there are plenty of challenges, but just as we've worked to get to this point, we will work through them too. BRING IT ON, CHALLENGES.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
