About

ChickenFightz

A cockfight table-top gambling game (play money included) for 2 to 8 players featuring hand-drawn roosters battling to the end.

ChickenFightz, The Game
ChickenFightz, The Game

In ChickenFightz (a cockfight table-top gambling game—play money included), two players bet on their individual roosters and inflict injuries on the opposing bird. When a rooster accumulates too many Injury Cards which can't be cured by drawing Healing Cards, that rooster dies and loses the match.

Side bets for all players, whether they're in the main match or not, keep the action moving and more than one match can occur at the same time.

How to Play: Two roosters enter a match and put money in the pot which the winner will take. Each player throws a die (called a “flight”), and the player throwing the lower number must draw the difference between the dice in Injury Cards. (For example, if one player throws a 6 and other a 4, the lower thrower would have to draw 2 Injury Cards, or 6 minus 4 = 2. Ties are re-thrown). When a player reaches 10 or more points in Injuries, the player can elect to concede and lose the pot, or buy five Healing Cards which are used to heal injuries and bring the total below 10 so that the match flights can continue.

Additional Healing Cards may be purchased individually at a higher rate. Part of the player strategy involves knowing when to give up, purchase another rooster, and play another match.

When a rooster's injuries can't be cured, the rooster dies and the opposing player wins the pot. The winning rooster receives a “Win Clip” which gives a winning rooster an advantage in subsequent matches.

Our goal is to manufacture the fun table-top game called ChickenFightz and, literally, kickstart a productive game, only available on Kickstarter. Funds will first be used to improve the typography and design elements of our prototype game. Secondly, we will manufacture the game for our backers.

Risks and challenges

Risks for fulfillment are very low, as we're working with a reliable and proven manufacturer and we have an absolute commitment to do what we've promised.

The components, while creative, are not complex so producing the game should be a smooth process. Timing is not completely predictable, of course, but for unusual or prolonged delays in manufacturing and delivery, we will provide appropriate updates.

DISCLAIMER:
The creators of ChickenFightz do not endorse nor approve of actual chicken fighting, which is illegal in all 50 of the United States and in many countries throughout the world. We encourage all game cock aficiandos to play the game of ChickenFightz instead.
