About this project

There is just one rule in the zombie mafia: Whack your enemies before they whack you.

Fortunately, you’ve got a crew of Mooks to do your dirty work. Sure, they may be brainless, but they’re generally reliable. Just give them what they need and point them in the right direction.

Of course, sometimes they forget what they’re doing, but that’s a small price to pay for undying loyalty, right?

Gameplay summary:

Each player uses his gang of Mooks to attack his opponents. In order to perform a hit, a Mook needs a disguise, a weapon, and a getaway vehicle. Once a Deadfella has all three items, he can perform a hit on any enemy whose total strength is less than or equal to his own.

A successful hit is not guaranteed, though, because an opponent can cancel a hit at any time by playing a "Fuhgeddaboutit!" card. After a successful hit, you have to discard a piece of evidence, reducing your Mook's strength and making him a target. So choose carefully.

The winner of the game is the first player to rack up a body count worth 10 or more points.

About the Kickstarter project:

Deadfellas is done and ready to go to the printer, but our development budget is currently dedicated to Hollow Earth Expedition. We don't want to make people wait, though, so we're asking for your help so we can publish Deadfellas as soon as possible. Those Mooks aren't going to whack themselves, after all.

We're asking for $6000, which is the amount we need to do a minimal print run. If we raise more than that, we'll be able to print more cards, drive down the cost per unit, and increase the likelihood of producing expansions. Basically, if we exceed our goal, everybody wins.

So what are you waiting for? Make a pledge today and help us bring Deadfellas to life!

Note: If you pledge $50 or more, we will give you free international shipping or a second copy of Deadfellas. You choose which option after funding. Otherwise, there will be an additional charge for international shipping on rewards above the $10 level.
