Horrible monsters have attacked the village of Donteatus and they're eating all of the peasants within its borders! Take control of one of the scrambling survivors to collect as many goods from the town as you can before being devoured, but only one player will ultimately win. Steal, trip, and shoot your way to the top in this fast-paced, frantic, and easy-to-learn card game for 2 to 7 players! The game includes over 90 cards!

Each player takes the role of a Peasant trying to survive the onslaught of monsters while collecting the items they desire. The player who collects the most of their goal items, before being eaten, wins!

Strategy and Random Chance:
Knowing when to fight and when to grab your loot is the core of this game. Sometimes, you'll want to press your luck to get that next card and other times you'll need to play reserved. The other players are always looking for ways to take you down, but if you get devoured too early, they'll lose a useful ally or a necessary enemy. Mastering your timing and calculating your odds of success are necessary skills in this fast-paced game of death!

A Player's Turn:
When it is your turn to explore the town, you'll draw cards from the deck into the loot pile. Some cards are items like weapons, gold, and booze, but others might be monsters or events! You'll keep drawing until either you decide to stop and collect your loot or you've drawn a monster! If you draw a monster, you'll lose all of the loot you've gained this turn and you'll be one step closer to dying. Draw too many monsters, and you'll be devoured!

Types of Cards:

Items can be collected for points, or discarded to defeat monsters!

Red cards, when played from your hand, let you steal from, attack, and screw over the other players!

Yellow cards affect everyone in the game, for better or for worse. When drawn, the effects on the card are resolved immediately.

Monster cards think you are crunchy and delicious, and if you draw one, you'll lose your loot and your turn ends! If you draw too many monsters, you are devoured!

Boss Monsters are the most dreaded cards in the game! When a boss monster is played, it counts as a monster against every living player in the game. If you can't work together to kill it immediately, it brings everyone one step closer to being devoured!

Peasants are your helpless avatars in the village of Donteatus! Each peasant has a unique set of goals and their own special ability.

Ending the Game: The game ends when all the players are dead, if you run out of cards to draw, or when the last player alive ends their turn. Count up the scores and declare a winner!

Peasant Buffet is already 90% finished, but in order to produce the game, we need to hit our manufacturer's minimum requirement. Furthermore, every person who backs us is letting us know that our project is worthwhile and that people want to play it. Even $1.00 pledges matter; it's the thought that counts!

We want to make more than just Peasant Buffet. We have a lot of great ideas that need your help to come to life! Wargi Studios has a wealth of  inspiration and we can't wait to get those games on the table for you to play!

Risks and challenges

We are absolutely committed to the highest quality product in terms of fun, playability, artistic quality, and material quality. We have been working with a very reliable manufacturer that has worked with Kickstarter projects before, and we are very confident in their ability to deliver a fantastic product in a very reasonable time frame. We are acutely aware of the common setbacks experienced in Kickstarter projects between production, quality control, packing and shipping. We are preparing for these difficulties in advance. We are experienced within the print production industry. Wargi Studios is committed to the product, and to our promises.
