About

Nerd Battles is a card game for 2-4 players from the laboratory of Dr. Krinkles.

Created by Gus Fink & Jeff Brown.

Battle your Nerds against your opponents’. Defeat a Nerd and they hide in your Basement. Send 4 Nerds to your Basement, and you win!

  • Start playing right away! Easy to learn rules let you get right into the action.
  • Fun & unique art style! Each card has fun illustrations by artist Gus Fink.
  • Play with confidence! More than just cards! Use your confidence tokens to get a match and power up your Nerds!

24 Unique Nerd Cards

46 Battle Cards

  • 17 Unique Attack Cards
  • 17 Unique Defense Cards
  • 12 Action Cards
  • 24 Confidence Tokens (w/ stands)

Everyone starts the game with 2 nerd cards, 4 battle cards, and 4 random confidence tokens.

On your turn, draw 1 nerd card, or 2 battle cards. Then choose to pit your nerd against an opponents’.

During a Nerd battle, add battle cards to increase your attack and defense. Your nerds IQ is the max number of battle cards you can add.

Give your nerd some confidence by adding a confidence token. If it matches the nerd, they get a permanent +2 to their attack and defense values. If it’s not a match, it’s just a temporary +1, and it goes away after the battle.

If your attack is greater than your opponents defense value, you win the battle! However, if they can defend the attack, and their attack value is greater than your defense, they win the battle!

The losing nerd hides in the winning nerd’s basement. Get 4 nerds in your basement and you win the game!

Instead of battling on your turn, you can also play action cards to perform different effects.

Be sure to discard down to 7 battle cards at the end of your turn, but you can have as many nerd cards in your hand as you want.

Risks and challenges

We’ve already gotten multiple quotes from manufacturers and have a distribution plan in place. Many of our risks involve unforeseeable issues with production and shipping that could potentially cause delays.

We will be fully transparent with our backers as to the schedule of production and shipments. Without you, the backer, we couldn’t create this game, so we will provide constant updates.
