About this project
Mahou Shojo is a battle card game played with two people for ages 8 and up.
"Artwork in this game is fantastic, the characters are super inclusive of all kinds of women from their varied skin tones to their body types. There is better representation of females in this game than I’ve seen in any game before it. That in itself makes this a fantastic game to empower players to find their own representative character and to help every girl find her magic." - Engaged Family Gaming
"Being a game targeted to young girls in a male-dominated industry will be tough, but if it comes in an all-inclusive box, and sells for around $20, I think it’ll be a hit." - Queen of the Nerds
"...I can officially give it the highest praise that I can bestow upon a game: it's really fun!" - Sprites and Dice
Update! 2/28/2015! MEGABOOTH Status!
Mahou Shojo will be featured at PAX East's Indie MEGABOOTH in their tabletop section! Please come see us in Boston and play our game!
Two players face off against each other in sparkling combat in order to defeat the other and capture their gems so that their rival cannot transform. Decks span from a number of themes including Nightmares, Daydreams, Sweets, Flowers, the Constellations, and even the Internet. Playtime is under 20 minutes, which is more than enough time to show your rivals what true (sparkling) pain is.
Inside the Starter Kit:
Each Starter Kit comes with 2 Decks, Instruction Book, and Gem Card Pieces. Everything needed to get started playing with a friend.
15,000 - We are funded! This means we are all set to go!
19,000 - Two New Decks! This allows us to unleash 2 other decks into the mix, Digital and Cosmos. Digital are all about cyber warriors who live on the internet! And Cosmos is all about the Western Constellation, (ie. Aries, Libra, Scorpio)
22,000 - Fan Picked Expansion Deck! We would pick the the top two most popular decks (based off a KS only survey) and make a speciality fusion deck!
25,000 - Art Book Expansion! If we were to reach this goal, and appendix would be added to the art book to add a COSPLAY GUIDE. In which we would talk about each girls outfits, so cosplay would be easier!
The object of the game is score three of your rival's gems. Gems are gained when a RIval's Magical Girl's HP reaches zero. To do this, players using a series of spells and abilities (and sometimes a little roleplaying) must engage in battle. While battle is happening, Magical Girls have a limited supply of magic they are able to use. If their magic is drained to zero before their hit points are, they are safe from being defeated. Some Magical Girls will be able to become Grand Magical Girls, which are very powerful for only a short amount of time. The game aims to be short but action packed.
Mahou Shojo is inspired by powerful women in both media and reality. The game hopes to capture both of these spirits and apply them to the game. This is also a game that recognizes that Representation Matters. With that, we focus on a diverse group of warriors with different ethnicities and body types.

Risks and challenges
We have a very dedicated team focused on making this game a reality. We all work extremely well together.
This would be our first time shipping to this amount of people. We hope to delegate a team to give you the rewards you want as soon as we can get them to you. We carefully chose our printer and have had multiple test prints done. In the case of an unworthy print, it could cause a delay. We would not give you a less than desirable product. Much of our game is finished, we just need the funds to complete it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Shipping across the USA is free! A fee must be added to out of country shipping due to customs, Thank you.
3500 - Printing
8400 - Art (each illustration being 60, each deck having 35 cards, and 4 decks in total)
1500 to KS Taxes.
That leaves 1600 left for things like convention costs (booths, hotels, prototype printing) and promotional materials.
