Each element card is linked with a specific action. Example: Playing a FIRE card lets you use the action BURN, which forces the next player to discard 2 cards. Elements can also be stacked together to unleash even more chaos!

Risks and challenges

This is the first time that this game is on Kickstarter. The December shipment date is there as a cushion in case there are any production delays.

Elemental Blast is finished and has undergone tons of play-testing. We have continually balanced the gameplay to make it the best game possible, and we think you will love it.

We want to share this game with the world, but we need your help! The money you pledge will go towards production costs so that we can make more copies than we would be able to afford alone. Also, when you get your copy tell your friends how much you enjoy it. We will be setting up a web page if we get fully funded so that people who missed out on the Kickstarter can still purchase the game.
