About


Created by animal lovers (seriously) for people who, well... just want to have some stupid fun - and glorify an often overlooked member of the animal kingdom; the vulture. VULTURES! is a fast paced, yet casual card game that doesn't require a ton of thought... just whip it out and have some good old fashioned fun.

 What's in the box:

Stretch Goals and other extras:

We have some cool extras that we'll reveal throughout the campaign - including some Kickstarter exclusives, a couple pre-stretch rewards (why wait to be funded?) and of course some stretch-stretch rewards after we hit our goal.

  • When we reach 50 backers, we'll reveal a very special "trump" card that comes with the base game. If we don't reach 50 backers, we'll be lying in the fetal position, crying... because obviously no one loves us.
  • When we reach 100 backers, we'll reveal a special vulture card that comes with the Extreme Expansion. We think it's extreme-ly cool.
  • Weapon cards will be revealed throughout the campaign at random times, for no reason... because spontaneity is fun. Between the base game and expansion, there are 43 weapon cards - which gives us plenty of opportunity to create goofy and sometimes horrifying ways to dispatch animals.
  • We've got some Stretch rewards ready when the time comes. They include an Extreme Expansion "trump" card, as well as a couple Kickstarter exclusive weapons.

Special Cards:

We've decided to reveal the base-game special resurrection card. This card is a "last chance" trump card used immediately after a player has been eliminated. (replaces the other carcasses)

Gigantopithecus Games:

Gigantopithecus Games is a group of artists, designers, publishers - and most importantly, lifelong gamers. And, despite the satirical content of this game, we're all animal lovers as well. We would never try to hit an animal with a bowling ball, screwdriver, or kielbasa - and we hope you wouldn't either. (However, we are all guilty of using a mousetrap a time or two. Sorry.)

VULTURES! features the art of the extremely talented, funny, and ultimately lovable Nick Sinclair. (also an animal lover)

VULTURES! has gone through many changes and revisions since it's inception, but it has been the one game we always take out on game night. During play-testing parties for other games, we'd often throw a round of VULTURES! in the mix... and it became a favorite amongst our friends. Even when we had way way too many vultures, or when we added an endangered species animal set (this didnt go over very well,) or when we thought it would be funny to add outrageously powerful weapons - even through those failed revisions - this was the game everyone wanted to play, all the time. In fact, we played it so much we got a little burned out. But in the end, all the extra playtesting has cultivated a pretty cool little game, and all satire aside - we're proud of it.

Risks and challenges

We've kept this project simple so we can deliver a kick-ass product in a short amount of time. We doubt the process will be perfect, things rarely are... but we're confident that we'll be able to satisfy even our most critical backer. We just want to put out an awesome game, and make sure everyone is happy.

Our funding goal is light (we're not looking for profit... we just want to get this sucker made!) and the game is ready to go.
