SUPERSHOW SET 2: THE BACKLASH
SUPERSHOW SET 2: THE BACKLASH

Welcome back to the Supershow! You better be ready for the Backlash. Supershow is the world’s first UCG (Unpredictable Card Game), a dice and card game for 2-6 players. What makes it so unpredictable? Your deck, your stats, your gimmick, each and every turn, and victory can be snatched from the jaws of defeat with just one lucky break. How do you snatch that victory? Level your opponent with a devastating finish, and make sure he can’t break out of the pin fall or submission attempt. 

Keep in mind, you don’t get to jump straight into your signature moves. You get nowhere unless you lay the groundwork with a simple Lead, and chain into a Follow-Up to soften your opponent for the big finish. This simple mechanic blends with the UCG’s design to create balanced, exciting, back-and-forth action that will leave you begging for just one more shot at the champ. 

Currently, the Legendary Fighting Federation is comprised of 3 box sets containing a total of 6 competitors, each with their own unique backstory and in-game history. There are also 2 Kickstarter-exclusive competitors from our last crowd funding campaign, and a series of competitors which can be won at LFF events, downloaded and printed out from our website, given away at live shows, or purchased from online retailers, such as: http://www.velacards.com

What is the LFF? Ah, one of the great mysteries of life. The Legendary Fighting Federation isn’t a massive worldwide promotion like you see on TV. Oh, no. It’s as underground as wrestling gets. The doors don’t open to just anyone; you have to be recruited. A secret note in your chinese food? A flyer stapled to your dry cleaning? A business card from a man far too well dressed to belong in your neighborhood? The way in is for talent to recognize talent. The LFF is where the overlooked, the under pushed, the stars of the independent wrestling world, and the desperate to break through come together in secrecy to create a spectacle so grand, it can only be called… The Supershow! 

A VIDEO ON OUR BACKSTORY

The LFF’s storyline was kicked off by the founders of SRG Universe, Steve Resk and John Calace, but it has become so much more than that. New characters are being developed all the time by devotees of the Supershow, and new story lines spring forth from their hard work, their dedication, and even the events we hold. What makes the LFF legendary is the hard work put in by the community to bring the Supershow to life. Who knows? Maybe the next competitor in the LFF could be you! So, what are you bringing to the table, rookie? 

Just like everyone else, your deck is comprised of 30 cards: 15 Leads, 12 Follow-Ups, and 3 Competitor-Specific Finish cards. These cards are broken down into Strikes, Grapples, and Submissions. You also get your Competitor, with a unique gimmick and skill chart. Keep an eye on that skill chart; depending on how it breaks down, your cards may be more or less effective against certain opponents. For a full explanation, you can check out our rule book or a tutorial video, but in brief, here’s what you do. Every turn, you have a TURN ROLL. All players roll their Supershow Die, which displays the six skills shown on your Competitor card. Once you see what skill you rolled, you look up the skill on your Competitor card, and compare the value to your opponent’s. The highest value wins, and may play a card. If opponents roll the same value, they BUMP, which means that both draw a card and re-roll. You will also see your character’s GIMMICK, which is a special skill that only you have access to.

 In the case of The Rising Sun, above, his gimmick allows him to draw a card whenever he rolls Technique. When a player wins a turn roll, they may play a card. If they have nothing in play, they may only play a LEAD. If they already have a LEAD, they may play a FOLLOW-UP. If they have a FOLLOW-UP in play, they may unload with their FINISH, and attempt to put their opponent down for the count. The opponent doesn’t have to just sit there and take it, though. Certain cards are STOP cards,

In this case, HIP TOSS, can be used to stop a FOLLOW UP SUBMISSION.

which can negate whatever the active player is throwing. STOPS are limited in what they can handle, but if you have the right one at the right time, you can keep the pressure off just long enough to win that next turn roll, and put the hurt right back where it belongs; on the other chump in the ring with you. In the end, it comes down to winning, so it comes down to your FINISH. When you throw your FINISH, your opponent has the chance to STOP it, like any normal card. However, if they don’t, then you get to roll your FINISH ROLL. This roll sets the bar for how hard it’ll be for your opponent to break out of the move you’ve applied. A 6 or a 7 is child’s play, but if you set the bar at 10, they’re going to have to start hoping that Lady Luck’s looking for a new friend to play with. Your opponent has three BREAKOUT ROLLS; three chances to stop the referee from slapping that mat. If they match your skill, everyone loses all their hard-earned work, the crowd gets hyped to a fever pitch, advancing the CROWD METER by one,

only the best of matches bring the CROWD METER to LEVEL 5!
only the best of matches bring the CROWD METER to LEVEL 5!

and you move to the next turn with no cards in play; if they don’t, then you’ve just become the toast of the town… just in time for the next jabroni to step up and take a shot. So, that explains what you are, but what about your opponents? A steady diet of one on one matches isn’t going to satisfy for long, now, is it? That’s no problem in the LFF. On our websit, forums, and social media, you can find rules for nearly any match type you’re ready to handle. Want to hop into a triple threat? No problem. Fatal 4-Way? Piece of cake. Elimination Tag Team? First-to-a-Finish Tornado Tag? Submission Match? Cage Match? Today’s your lucky day, rook. We’re ready to dish out pain in whatever form you like. 

GAMING VIDEO FOR SINGLES

GAMING VIDEO FOR FOUR PLAYERS

SRG Universe is committed to “Playing it Forward.” What do we mean by that? It starts with design: we aim to keep our games simple enough that a new player could start teaching others how to play after just one game. Being able to bring new players into the world of gaming is a wonderful feeling, and we aim to make it as easy as possible to share our love of games with the world. We also aim to boost the gaming community as a whole: we strive to learn and share other games, promote other companies’ great efforts, and draw attention to the talented artists who are still looking to make it big. We aim to bring new talent into the fold, so more people have a chance to contribute to the games they love, and we offer our fans and players free products as we can, so they can bring more people to the table without having to break the bank to do so. 

Should we surpass our $5,000 goal by even one red cent, we will continue to pay the world renowned linguistic Hercules who serves as our editor. This dashing, charming, and endlessly modest fellow is the reason our products retain the crisp, masterfully professional air they so effortlessly achieve… and, not coincidentally, is the person writing the copy for this section. Beyond that, we intend to offer a veritable smorgasbord of stretch goals, starting with as little as $100 beyond our goal. We aim to offer the SRG Universe a more immersive, more enjoyable experience in everything we do, so our stretch goals will cover better support for Supershow live events, more promos for our backers and SRG Universe merchandise. First, we have a series of goals that will benefit most to all of our backers, and even those members of the SRG Universe unable to join us in our mission.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges The Backlash is the second Kickstarter campaign for the Supershow, and as such, we have several advantages over our previous campaign. We are fully cognizant of what is required to secure a professional grade product, and to source and produce a print run capable of supplying not just our backers, but our retail partners as well. Nonetheless, we are also cognizant of sheer random chance, and are prepared to address any issues that may arise in production post-funding. We are 100% committed to ensuring that we will provide our backers the product they are promised, in as swift and efficient a manner as possible. We have succeeded thus far because of you, and we will not fail you.
