THE PROJECT IS FUNDED!
THE PROJECT IS FUNDED!

 

It’s time to CHOOSE YOUR SIDE!

Will you lead the fierce blood snob VAMPIRES or perhaps throw down with a herd of obnoxious UNICORNS?

VAMPIRES vs. UNICORNS: Floor War is a hillariously fun THROWING CARD game with unexpected results, featuring fantastic hand painted tile art by TRAVIS LAMPE and TRAVIS LOUIE suitable for frameing!

Draw from your deck of cards to RAISE THE DEAD, cause a UNICORN STAMPEDE, and more! It’s up to you to find the best throwing technique to destroy your opponent’s FLOOR TILES, but, like, BEWARE! As not all tiles are the same!

It’s HORN vs. TOOTH, HOOF vs. CLAW! 

Game designed by JIM DUBOIS and ATTABOY, based on an original concept by JIM DUBOIS.

It's a game that is durable, playable, then frameable.

From Yumfactory Games. But only with your help.

The Game:

  • 7 frameable Two-Sided Unicorn Tiles : each is 7.75" x 7.75", made of high quality thick 2.0mm laminated chipboard
  • 7 frameable Two-Sided Vampire Tiles : each is 7.75" x 7.75", made of high quality thick 2.0mm laminated chipboard.
  • 48 Vampire Cards, with rounded corners
  • 48 Unicorn Cards, with rounded corners 
  • 16-Page Full Color illustrated Instruction Booklet 
  • Specially Designed Vac Tray to hold all of the above. The whole game weighs in about 3lbs.
  • The rare opportunity to enact revenge on your opponent/friend/foe and defeat those bastard unicorns once and for all. 

The Art:

What's it like to play the game?

We wanted to make a game that was both fun to play AND to watch. It's a bit like playing the bar room game called "Cornhole", but with more dynamic strategies and unexpected results. No two games are the same, and players on the losing end always have an opportunity to win. The Vampires side is best when the Unicorns are weakened (they can sometimes attack repeatedly, so long as they keep hitting). But the Unicorns are stronger in groups (multiple card throws)! A typical game takes about 12-15 minutes, but it varies. People like to switch sides after playing and do a best of 2 out of 3 or have a tournament (sometimes after a few drinks).

Playing the game kinda feels like this:

The Cards:

Some cards instruct you to throw more than one card at once (STAMPEDE!), others allow you to steal cards from an opponent (UNICORN MAGIC!), and others allow you to pick up to three "dead" unicorn cards on your side and throw them back at your opponent! (RAISE THE DEAD!) and more..

The Tiles:

Made out of sturdy chip board, different tiles have different properties. Some tiles can be eliminated with one "land", others two, and each side has a home base or castle tile which can only be eliminated with either a very lucky shot, or with one "land", but this can only happen only if all other tiles on its side have been removed!

Risks and challenges

I've been designing/printing books and magazines for many years as well as making toys, so production should go pretty smooth. A great and very experienced game factory has already been lined up! Delays at customs can happen, but we're right near the port, so that helps. Also, the world may run out of trees-don't think that will happen, though. This is my second Kickstarter Project. The first one went very smoothly.
