About this project

Monsters & Cheese is a game where the cheese piles high, and awesome monsters are rare and valuable. But be careful, too many monsters and not enough cheese means you wasted your time! Any monsters that don't attend your party sit useless in the discard pile, drawing mockery and dismissive smirks from your opponents, who probably have cheese to spare! 

The player who creates the coolest Monster Party, WINS!

This game utilizes a card picking (or drafting) style, called the "Winston" which you can Google

This is important because it will allow cheese (which are not so valuable in small quantity) to arrive in large quantities, while monsters (which are very awesome!) to arrive in small scarce quantities, creating a "Self Correcting" asymmetrical card drafting experience that will prove challenging again and again, forcing players to adopt and adapt new strategies on the fly. 

Count them up!

 

At the end of every game, you count up your points, using what's known in programming as a "Greedy" algorithm to assure your score is maximized. Simply feed the "Hungriest or Coolest" monsters, using the largest cheeses first. When all your monsters are fed, count your "cool." If it is greater than your opponent's cool, you WIN! 

This is, however, just one game type! We'll be adding additional rules and game types as each stretch goal is met. This will increase the size of your rule book, without increasing the complexity of the game. Individual Fancy and Core stretch goals will be generous and fun, we promise!! 

 Fancy Stretch Goals are unique in that they will add tremendously to the complexity of the game with unique cards, making it a game for ages 13 and up instead of 7 and up for fancy backers only!

Basic Stretch Goals will maintain the simplicity of the original game, while continuing to add value to the project for ages 7 and up!.

Risks and challenges

Will and Mende both feel passionately that fantasy gaming is not only about men with swords and women in distress. Part of the mission with creating deep and interesting worlds is offering unique gender roles and busting the male-centric bubble that is business as usual. Five to Nine Gaming Company is their outstanding collab. Challenges will be accommodating diverse audiences, overcoming language and other barriers.

We have already received prototypes of the game from our distributor, TheGameCrafter.com, a US distributor and manufacturer! We can promise this is the best and only way we can do business and make a great card game everyone can enjoy!
