About

About Us

AGdR is made up of a group of grumpy old men in varying degrees of failing health who just like tabletop games.

We like playing tabletop games.  We like talking about tabletop games.  And we like creating tabletop games.

The Game

In Face Off Duels, you are installed as the leader of a mighty faction.  Over three rounds of tactical combat, you determine which group, which leader, is the greatest of all time.

What separates Face Off Duels from other fighting card games is a unique scoring system that forces players to not only play their opponent, but the table as well. The result is a quick game that, like a great puzzle, you will want to return to again and again. The Face Off scoring system plus the magical whimsy that is the Power Deck means no two games of Face Off Duels are the same. Face Off Duels present you with multiple paths to victory, a myriad of strategic options, and a sense of humor that is way more engaging than this blurb. In order to win, you must be able to plan ahead, bluff when appropriate, and occasionally pull that one card off the top of the deck. If you can do all these (and add seven plus five in your head) you just might be able to lead your chosen faction to glory.

Our Hopes

Face Off Duels is our first public offering and the first game in the Face Off Family.  We have spent years planning, playing, writing, and testing various versions and rule sets of Face Off and we are positive this game is ready for you --we even have the play test data to prove it.

We are looking to the kickstarter community, of which we are all long time, long participating members, to help us raise awareness, cover printing costs, and add excitement to our otherwise hum-drum lives.

Louisiana may be 50 out of 50 in a lot of things, but fun ain't one of 'em.

Retailers

We want to provide retailers a chance to stock the game. If you're a retailer, please contact us at info@agdrgames.com for pricing information.

Risks and challenges

We are, with all modesty and full transparency, really good board game designers. But we're for sh*t at marketing and we're worse at self promotion. We got one guy who refuses to engage with social media. and we got another guy who thinks the entire act of selling anything is undignified and beneath him.

So the one big challenge of Face Off Duels, and frankly all of AGdR, is that it simply could just die on the vine because we suck so hard at engaging with people. (We are aware of the problem, and most members of AGdR engage in regular on going therapy because we want to be better.)

So if you're reading this, share it with a friend because we suffer from a whole host of mental, physical, and emotional problems that prevent us from doing so.

Thanks.
