PHOBIA is a fun fast paced card game that is made for 2-5 players, the game is currently filled with 100 cards split into 4 different decks:
The game consists of 12 uncommon but very real fears, such as fear of the Pope or fear of butterflies. Each PHOBIA card also has a counter PROTECTION card that will help with your survival in the game. There are also 3 Universal protection cards that can be used on any fear.
- At the start of your turn: Play a PHOBIA card against a player of your choice.
- No FEAR hit: Play continues clockwise.
- A minor FEAR is hit: Draw an EFFECT card for immediate resolution. Also, draw a new FEAR card.
- A major FEAR is hit: If you have a PROTECTION, play it. Otherwise, this is a point against.
- End of Turn: Always draw so you have 5 PHOBIA cards in your hand.
- Points against allow for you to play one additional PHOBIA card for each point against.
- 3 Points against and you're out!
- Start of the game: Players will be given 5 PHOBIA cards, 1 FEAR card and 3 PROTECTION cards. All cards should remain hidden.
"Phobia is a fun little game based on a very under utilized theme! Plenty of room for messing with your friends minds." - Brian Flowers, Tabletop Cafe.
"An exciting game in which the effect cards can change the outlook of the game in an instant!" - Sameer Jaffer

Risks and challenges
Our team firmly believes that if something is without challenge, it likely isn't worth the effort. And we love that! Challenge is what makes it fun! Our passion shines through any risk or challenge.
We have identified and detailed specific challenges and risks inherent to this genre of game, and the industry as a whole. An example of this is the ever present challenge of Time. We might be a handful of talented game designers, but there are only so many hours in a day! But don't fret, while there is the possibility of delays in shipping, as our backers you will be made first priority. You will get your copy of the game.
We have identified and overcome challenges in this project, which is not something all game designers can say. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the industry experts and leaders that have imparted their endless wisdom to us. They have given us an invaluable leg up in getting PHOBIA off the ground. Thank you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
