Shadowfist, the Hong Kong action movie card game, returns with the exciting follow-up to last year's Combat in Kowloon!

History and Intent

Shadowfist goes all the way back to the first generation of CCGs, in the mid 90s. As the Hong Kong Action Movie Card Game, it's stood the test of time and continues to be enjoyed by gamers worldwide. Afterall, what's more fun than cyborg monkeys battling Confucian monks in downtown Kowloon while truck-driving heroes set booby traps for evil, squeaky-voiced sorcerers?

Inner Kingdom Games, hot off the success of last year's Kickstarter campaign to bring Shadowfist back into the mainstream, is ready to follow-up Combat in Kowloon with two great new expansions: Reinforcements and Revelations!

About the Game

Shadowfist is the mile-a-minute, sword-clashing, butt-kicking, Uzi-spraying, boat-exploding, car-chasing, monster-crunching, Hong Kong cinematic action card game that is so epic it would take fourteen John Woos to film and a cast the likes of Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Chow Yun Fat and Michelle Yeoh. And that's just in the first five minutes!

It's widely considered one of the finest multiplayer card games ever made, with a balanced, fun and fast-paced rules set. Combat in the game is played out realistically and all players are always in the game! Unlike other card games, multiplayer Shadowfist is not about elimination or scoring points. Players only leave the game when they run out of cards and the comeback potential is unlike any game you've ever played! 

In Shadowfist, players vie for global domination, by harnessing the chi, or life force, of the world. They who control the chi flow, control life and with it, the world. Chi flow is harnessed through control of Feng Shui Sites. Like the ancient Chinese system of geomancy to help one improve life by receiving positive chi, Feng Shui sites enable their controller to influence regional dominance. This is conveyed in Shadowfist through the win condition of controlling five Feng Shui Sites to win a multiplayer game.

What this Kickstarter offers:

The primary products for this campaign are the two 50-card, non-randomized Shadowpacks that feature a mix of all six factions plus new unaligned cards and Feng Shui Sites.

These two expansions also feature two awesome new mechanics for the Shadowfist experience: Token Characters and alternate-cost events!

Token Characters enter play from the effects of other cards, such as events, Sites, Edges or even existing Characters. They have a designated Fighting Score, a "notional" play cost and are all Toasted when they leave play.

Each of the six factions have a new alternate cost event that features a flavorful and appropriate effect based on the factions' strengths. The kicker is that these events may alternately be played at no immediate cost, with the secondary condition that the player must skip their next power generation phase!

(We're still toying with whether to use a bold-faced ability for the cost reduction or to keep spelling it out with each card.)

Existing cards for Shadowfist will always be welcome in open formats, and players are free to engage the new environment in the non-collectable model at their leisure.

Whether you're a returning player, back from a long hiatus; a veteran Mr. Suitcase who's been playing since 1995 or a new visitor looking for a great new card game where a Barrel Full of Monkeys faces off against Snake Demons and Thunder Knights, this release has something for you!

Rewards

Explore the reward levels for the right one for you, and if you're looking to start off with a great collection, consider supporting the campaign at multiple levels! Just total the amounts of the levels you like and pledge that amount, then shoot me a note letting me know which levels you wish to receive.

For example, if you want one copy of all game releases, plus an extra three copies each of the two new expansions, you want the "Sifu" and "Master" levels. You would select the Master level, pledge $150, then shoot me a note indicating that you'd like these two levels (or just list the items).

Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Inner Kingdom Games is excited to bring you these new Shadowfist offerings. We are confident that our goal is attainable and we're already planning out stretch goals for when we reach $30,000 and beyond.
If the pace of funding throughout the campaign does not meet our needs, we will examine the reward levels and consider offering new options that better meet the desires of the players.
As this is our second Kickstarter, we are much better prepared to coordinate with our printers to ensure our timelines are met and the products are up to standard.
In short, Inner Kingdom Games is committed to providing you quality merchandise to enhance your continued Shadowfist experience!
