HOW TO PLAY

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RS9n2gyJPdk

One of the nice things about Karms is it only takes 5 minutes to learn the basics. Then you can dive right in and start playing.

 Karms is a really fun game played in its base form: 2 people with 8 pawns each creates a potentially prolonged battle of wits and skill.

LET'S WATCH A MATCH BETWEEN FATHER AND SON (you know who'll win, don't you?)

However, you can choose to streamline the contest, and play with 3 or 4 pawns each. This opens up the board and turns the game into a fast and furious sparring match; different strategies, new risks. Great for a best of 7 or perhaps a pool of friends in a round robin tournament.

Another possibility: 2 teams, each team combining their skill and genius, conspiring to defeat the other with clever schemes, frustrating blocks and ricochet finesse.

Part of the beauty of Karms is this flexibility.

Anyway you choose, it's a blast!

Risks and challenges

At last; the required disclaimers (this is usually the place where purchased products are accompanied by 50 pages of legalese which say that no matter what happens, you lose!).
Not on my watch!
My goal is to deliver what I promise: a great game; to you and on time.
But like everywhere in life, there are contingencies. Here are mine: I’m now working in my garage, here in Los Angeles. And despite my remarkable intelligence and my stellar skill, logistics limit my production (but not for long; Hasbro, can you feel me breathing down your neck? I’m comin’!).
Ok, back to now : as demand and finances allow, I will expand into a larger shop and more efficient production but as it stands, here are the perimeters for delivery of game.
