SUPERBEINGS JUMBO CARD GAME is a 4 X large, anime-styled 2-4 player card battler by designer Rick Medina. 4 X large means each card is 4 X the industry standard and nearly 5" x 7" in size. It's not called the Superbeings Jumbo Card Game for nothing!

  • As a living card game, there are no packs to buy, just great value in a 120-card Full Set experience starting at the ultra-low price of $19.

 

Why Play Superbeings?

  • A rich history ready for a reboot. We've been here before back in 2002-2004 with the Humaliens card game. Now with a reimagined redesign, Rick's dream of the creating the ultimate card battler is here with 120 big cards and the D12 dice system for only $19.
  • The art of flipping a Super on the Frontline. Every Superbeing card is double-sided with a (PROTECT/DEFENSE mode called PRO) and a (POWER/ATTACK mode called POW). As you'll soon discover, timely flipping of your Supers mode from PRO to POW or POW to PRO is big part of how you maneuver your Superbeings on the Frontline.
  • The jumbo card fun factor. Players will connect to the big cards, larger Superbeing artwork and the easier to read text effects with no game mat required - the jumbo cards are the living game mat! 

 Other Fun & Cool Reasons To Like Superbeings!

  • The game at its roots is a competitively fun 2-player battling deckbuilder integrated with the D12 dice system. It has an emphasis on strategic card effects but with all the dice elements the other card battlers don't offer. Also, when the opportunity for a 4-player game is called upon, there's an entirely different feel to the game when 4 players do battle to win it all.
  • Superbeings main deckbuilding format is Singleton! That means there's no duplicate cards allowed in your master decks. Going Singleton leads to games that are more interesting and more fun as a result of playing a wide assortment of cards.
  • Superbeings features a 6-Super Team concept of playing with 3 Frontline attackers and 3 Backline reinforcements with the objective to win by 1 of 3 ways.
  • The main mechanics revolve around a variety of dice consisting of DC (die coin), D6, D12 (standard and jumbo) and D20 dice for determining 50/50 rolls, tracking damage, establishing turn actions, attacks and more.
  • There are 2 games in the $19 box; the main game that's power packed with unlimited replayability, and the fast play starter game for players ready to do battle without all the added card effects and Battle cards.
  • Game play generally takes 45 minutes for the main game and 15 minutes for the fast play game. 

Now at the blowout price of $19 for Superbeings, the Ultimate Card Battler!

2 COUNTS FATHER GEEK APPROVED!!!

Father Geek's Final Review Comments:

"The bigger card format does allow for each card to contain information that is easy to read at a glance and gives the game a more epic look and feel. Do try this game if you are a fan of deck-building battle card games or are looking to get into them. It’s a nice entry into the genre and a fun game for those already familiar with it."

APPEALS TO CARD BATTLERS OF ALL AGES!!!

Stephen Gulik's Final Review Comments:

"Superbeings is a really cool game that will appeal to all ages. I also play a lot of Hearthstone, but Superbeing’s guarding mechanic provides a much more authentic battle feel. This is definitely among the best games of this type that I’ve played. I’m giving it 8 super meeples."

MAIN GAME PLAYTHROUGH VIDEO NOTES:

  • During one instance where Mass Tink attacks and KO's Psykra with 7 damage. I forgot to distribute the remaining 4 damage to another Frontliner.
  • Towards the end of the video, I forget to gain my 3 action credits for the Nlife's turn. This is before I play the Scheme card, Sneak Attack.
  • The game doesn't end after the video is over because it takes 5 Supers to win by a Knockout Victory. Lo-Fi does in fact KO Avatar at the end of the video.
  • The pace of this full-narrative playthrough is certainly slow but it's good for now. Also, watch the Rules 101 video.

 

 

FAST PLAY GAME PLAYTHROUGH VIDEO NOTES:

  • Near the end of the video, Vertigo KO's Rivalis and the old rule stated the attacker also had to leave the field after 1 KO under the Super Deck. Now the rule is after a Super gets 2 KO's he then leaves the field like the Main Game's "Invincibility Effect."

Risks and challenges

Superbeings Jumbo Card Game will be printed and made in China. We are working with an excellent manufacture of card and tabletop games with a proven track record on many popular games. But with any project, there is a risk of delay in regards to pre-production, quality control, final production and overseas freight shipping.

We expect to have the game fully ready in October to November after rigorous preparation with the estimated delivery of Superbeings Jumbo Card Game by March of 2018.

Of course, our number one objective is deliver an insanely cool game, thoroughly play tested, balanced and printed in stunning detail.

In closing, if we get the chance this is only the beginning, our rich history with the Humaliens card game back in 2002-2004 collaborating with AEG left us with a significant amount of Superbeings artwork that's never been seen before. Not too mention the many cool design ideas we already have in motion that will be introduced in new sets to come.

You can pledge with confidence knowing Superbeings is a unique card game experience with a whole lot of love behind it.

Thank you,

Rick Medina
Designer of Superbeings
