About

Battle for Booty is a 3-8 player card-drafting party game where you aim to collect the most treasure possible, even if it means backstabbing your best friends. The game is designed to be quick to play and simple to pick up, but with much more strategy than meets the eye.

In each and every box you get...   

  • 75 Playing Cards 
  • 4 Jumbo Tokens 
  • 20 Victory Vessel Tokens 
  •  20 Lock Tokens 
  • 1 Rule Sheet

Every seafaring adventure begin with a draft that has each player being dealt 9 cards. Players will look at their cards and choose 1 to keep. Then they pass the rest of the cards to the player on their left, face down. Everyone continues to choose and pass cards until every card has been selected. That's when the pirating begins!

But before we set sail, let's look at the 4 types of cards: Treasures, Gears, Attacks and Boosts.

And now for the pirating! Players will take turns playing one card at a time, until everyone has run out of cards to play. Once every single card has been played, the player with the most Points wins that round! They acquire a Vessel Token, displaying their dominance, and another round may be played. It's that simple!

Though the game flow is simple, the strategy runs deep. Players will want to think about what cards they saw go around during the draft when deciding what to play. Do you want to play a large Treasure card if you know there are unplayed "Plunder" cards? If you have a "Plunder" card do you use it on a Treasure that's currently in a Vault? Or do you save it for something bigger, potentially allowing vaulted Treasures to be locked.

This kind of evolution is what makes Battle for Booty so dynamic and fun. No two games are alike!

Among the pirates through history there are 4 pirates that stood above the rest. You will witness their grand successes and epic failures throughout the artwork of Battle for Booty. Above all else, you can laugh at them messing with each other as you mess with your friends!

We will collect shipping costs after the campaign ends. Below are the current estimates for shipping. Depending on the scale of the Kickstarter's success we can look into finding a fullfillment partner to lower shipping costs.

$5 - Continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii.

$10 - Canada/Mexico.

$20 - Rest of the world.

Risks and challenges

The game has been designed and tested fully, and all of the artwork is complete, save for minor reward tier/stretch goal additions. As soon as the Kickstater ends, we'll be ready to start the manufacturing process!

This is Mitten Mob Games' first Kickstarter. Even though we have a lot of experience designing and playtesting games, this will be our first attempt to manufacture and ship a game.

We have production quotes from an experienced manufacturing partner and will be submitting final numbers upon completion of the Kickstarter.

Also to mitigate any complications, the stretch goals are mostly for content that can be created outside of the shipped product, meaning they won't have an impact on the ship date.

We hope to get Battle for Booty in your hands as soon as possible!
