About this project

Update: We are funded! Woot! Thank you!

Love and hate are the most powerful emotions…and that’s why we are toying with them for the sake of amusement in Love 2 Hate: A Party Game for Inappropriate People! The game is designed and ready for production. We just need the money to print it, which is where you come in!

Learn How!

Love 2 Hate is the card game of finishing sentences (and laughing at the result!). The rules couldn't be simpler.

There are two types of cards, sentence starters and finishers. At the start of the game everyone draws a hand of 5 finishers. Players then take it in turns to act as the judge. A judge draws the top starter card. Example starters include Cosplayers, Moist Towelettes, Crabs, and Mimes.

Then the judge has a decision to make: love or hate?! Let’s say the judge draws the Hippies card. That can be played one of two ways:

I love the way hippies…

Or

I hate the way hippies…

The remaining players now look through their finisher cards and chose one to play, face down. The judge reads these aloud and then chooses the best one. What does best mean? That’s up to the judge, so know your fellow gamers! It might be the funniest, craziest, or most outrageous, depending on the judge, so choose wisely!

Finished sentences then look like this: 

The winner keeps the card and play continues until one player gets 5 cards. Easy, right? And fun!

The Game

Love 2 Hate is a party game from designer Colm Lundberg. At the lowest level of funding, it will include 254 cards, but we have 324 cards ready to go so that’s what we’re shooting for (stretch goals willing). If the game funds, we will be selling it to book and game stores as we do with our regular product line. However, we are doing a Kickstarter exclusive expansion deck of 60 cards as something special for the early adopters of Love 2 Hate. Better yet, you've got an opportunity to contribute a card to the expansion! See the Party Lover reward tier for more info on that.

Shipping

Shipping prices suck. There are no two ways about it. We are partnering with a company that has warehouses in the US and England to try to keep these costs down as much as we can, and we are subsidizing shipping a bit. The downside of our shipping arrangement (from a Kickstarter clarity point of view) is that we've had to create three versions of each reward level. So Pirate Lover USA, Pirate Lover EU and Canada, and Pirate Lover International all have the same rewards, they are just priced differently for shipping purposes. Pick the International option if you live somewhere other than the USA, EU, or Canada. 

Stretch Goals

$20,000: We will add 35 more cards to the core game.

$25,000: We will add 20 more cards to the Kickstarter exclusive expansion.

$30,000: We will add 35 more cards to the core game.

$35,000: We will add 20 more cards to the Kickstarter exclusive expansion.

 Walk the Plank

Several reward levels give you the option of getting our Walk the Plank card game in addition to Love 2 Hate for the crazy low price of $5. Walk the Plank is a trick-taking card game so easy you can play it with your grandma or your kids (and this has been tested with actual grandmas and actual kids). You can learn more about it on our website.

About Green Ronin 

Publisher Green Ronin is a veteran game publisher founded in the year 2000. We have previously published the card games Torches & Pitchforks and Walk the Plank. We are best known for our roleplaying games (Mutants & Masterminds, Dragon Age, and A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying to name a few) but we play and love all sorts of games. Love 2 Hate is our first party game.

About the Designer

Colm Lundberg has been around the Irish game scene longer than some of its members have been alive, running cons (founding one) and charity auctions, and generally making a nuisance of himself. He has previously been involved in the industry as a volunteer coordinator and continues to demo many games with many hats, but he is considering intervention therapy. He lives in rural Co. Kerry in Ireland where, contrary to tourist signposts, there are no leprechauns.

Risks and challenges

Love 2 Hate is 90% ready to go as we launch this Kickstarter. We have 324 cards designed and laid out. At this point we need to design the box and finalize the expansion deck based on the cards submitted by backers. That’s it! The real risk here is simply not getting the funding we need to send this to print. We aren't asking you to wait around while the game is designed. That’s already done!
