About

My son Trey is a big fan of trading card games. As for myself (growing up with role-playing games and Axis & Allies) I've always liked using dice in combat. We combined those elements to create CRYPTIDS.

HERE'S HOW TO PLAY:

The boxed set will include 100 creature cards, 8 investigation cards, a 20"x20" game-board, a 10-sided die, and a rulebook.

Ages: 10 & up 

Time: 30-60 minutes. Game length is determined by using half or whole decks.

Featuring 100 creatures like The Jersey Devil, Megaladon, The Maryland Goatman & The Iceland Worm Monster.  If it has been seen, reported, or rumored about, but has never been proven, we call it a cryptid!

PERKS INCLUDE:

Hi-REZ JPEG (choose from 100 Cryptids)

ORIGINAL SKETCH (choose from 100 Cryptids)

THE GAME

SIGNED CANVAS PRINT 8x8" Print (choose from 100 Cryptids)

ORIGINAL OIL 11x14" Canvas (choose from 100 Cryptids)

NESSIE SCULPTURE (no photo available)

Your pledge will go towards to cost of printing and releasing the game.  We are using one of the best game manufacturers in the world because quality is important to us. 

This game was a blast to design!  Please help us cross the finish line.

Risks and challenges

If you like card, dice or fantasy games, you will most likely enjoy CRYPTIDS. The rules are simple and the game-play is fast-paced.

Special thanks to Roger Butterley for composing the excellent musical score for the video.
