About

What's so special about The Ginger Wars? Not only does the game have fun and smooth gameplay, you can raise the stakes and play an eliminator match with real gingerbread people you bake yourself.

For years under King Gingard IV’s rule the Ginger Realm experienced peace and prosperity. Unfortunately this golden age came to end when King Gingard mysteriously vanished. With no one to rule the Realm, it spiraled into chaos. The six ginger lords are blaming each other for King Gingard’s disappearance, which has led the realm to The Ginger Wars.

As is customary in the Ginger Realm a new leader must prove their worth in combat. The six lords ruthlessly duke it out, exerting dominance by claiming pieces of their fallen opponents. Once one lord has claimed all 5 pieces required to make a full ginger person, they are victorious…and to the victor go the spoils. The defeated five lords piece themselves back together and pledge their loyalty to the winner and crown them the new king of the Ginger Realm.

Challenge others for their character pieces with your battle cards. The first one to collect enough pieces to make a new Gingerbread person wins the game.

The special cards have unique abilities, so keep track of when other players use theirs to put the odds in your favour. Gain the ability to play an extra attack/defence card for each character piece lose. If no character piece is left for you to take, it's time to steal. Be careful who you choose to attack because attacking a player twice in a row makes them desperate and your character piece is up for grabs if you lose the hand.

As a small token of appreciation to our first 100 backers that purchase a physical copy of our game, we're going to send out a personalized Thank You card... written on the back of one of our demo cards used for play testing, which helped develop the game.

                                                                                           
  
          
      
      
                                            

We're not going to hold any part of the core game hostage, but we will be releasing a special stretch goal once the funding goal is reached. Stay Tuned!

  • Ready to Go: We are asking for approx. $12,000USD to get the game produced and printed with quality from one of the top game manufacturers. The game is designed and battle tested. Before getting started with the sampling and manufacturing process we just have to put a few finishing touches on the artwork, make sure everything is perfectly done to our manufacturers specs and update the look of the rulebook.
  • Game Play: Casual and more experience gamers both love the game. It's easy to learn and has quick and smooth game play. It's well balanced and also has a good level of strategy involved.
  • Portability: It fits nicely in a card tuck box and is perfect for travel.
  • Support Indie Game Developers: The Ginger Wars is brought to you by PMD Games based in Toronto, Canada. We're starting up and have lots of great game ideas we want to pursue after this project. Supporting this campaign will help us raise money to develop more games for you.
  • Our Friends: We're working with WinGo Games (http://www.wingogames.com) to produce our game. They have successfully handled a number of Kickstarter campaigns (http://www.wingogames.com/kickstarter-service-pack) and have over 20 years of experience in the industry!! We are also working will a company that specializes in order fulfillment to ship your game. They have successfully handled a number of Kickstarter campaigns as well. You can be assured you're in good hands.

Risks and challenges

We are excited to bring our game to our Kickstarter backers, but like any product, it bares the risk of manufacturing or shipping delays. We will address any issue diligently as we aim to deliver you a quality product in a short amount of time. It's also possible the art or rules may change slightly from what is currently displayed. We'll keep you updated on every step of the way. Promise.

Special Thanks to Nerd Immersion for the well worded game description and Cake & Allie for the awesome gingerbread pic.
