Tanto Cuore is a deck building card game for 2-4 players. The players take the roles of “master of the house,” employ a lot of cute maids, and are served by them while slowly filling out their house (card deck).

But take care! The maids can become sick or get bad habits. When the game ends, the player who has the most victory point-gaining maids in his staff (all his cards) is the “perfect master” and the winner of the game.

Tanto Cuore: Oktoberfest edition is a new twist on a favorite game. We're taking you to Germany! In the Oktoberfest edition you will...

  • Employ Bar Maids 
  • Start a Beer Stand 
  • And Collect Beer Cards for extra victory points!
Just like previous editions of Tanto Cuore, the cards from this game can be mixed and matched with any variety of cards from the other sets. 


Every backer that pledges $50 or more will receive a Nadja Kersten Bar Maid extended art promo card! We've got more great promos in store for you too!

We did something fun with Tanto Cuore: Oktoberfest - Nadja and Gina did a photoshoot in Germany along with their friends to get some great pictures for promo cards and promotions for the new edition of Tanto Cuore!

Tanto Cuore Playmat - Nadja Kersten!

We are making a brand new playmat for Tanto Cuore: Oktoberfest, and if you pledge at the $75 or higher level you will get one included with your shipment!

Pledge Levels!

Add-Ons!

The first 3 editions of Tanto Cuore have been out of print for a few months now, and we are working on a reprint of those as well. We even went through and enlarged the text on the cards where we could to make them easier to play - and these will all be available by the time that Tanto Cuore: Oktoberfest releases! 

You can add on any edition of Tanto Cuore 1-3 for an additional $50 per game, and when you do, you will receive a set of 5 ADDITIONAL promo cards for each edition that you add on!

Want to get a 2nd copy of Tanto Cuore: Oktoberfest? You can do that too, along with all stretch goal promo cards! 

* There is no limit on these add ons

Tanto Cuore - $50 add on

Tanto Cuore: Expanding the House - $50 add on

Tanto Cuore: Romantic Vacation - $50 add on

Tanto Cuore: Oktoberfest 2nd copy - $50 add on

 

T-shirt add-on! 

These are very high quality shirts, with full art across the front and the Tanto Cuore, Japanime, and Arclight logos on the back. We are making these in both Ladies and Mens sizes. You will let us know what size or style you want after the campaign ends during the Pledge Manager. All sizes are the same price, $40 each. 

These shirts will be made by Mandala Designs - they produce incredibly high quality products. These shirts will be 100% Polyester, printed with dye sublimation. Very comfortable and vibrant, you will love these shirts!

 Beer Stein add-on

We are getting a limited amount of these made for our Kickstarter backers - a great accessory for playing the game! And if you don't drink beer, feel free to use it for hot chocolate!
Unfortunately we are going to have to have to ask for an extra $10 for international backers on this item as these weigh almost 2 pounds each, but there will be no extra upcharge for our domestic backers for shipping.


Towel/Playmat add-on

These adorable towels are perfect for the anime-collector inside us all! They are similar to the very rare micro fiber cloth playmats we have featured and sold before. 130 x 70 cm, you can choose either Anja or Sainsbury to add to your collection.

Playmat add-on  

We've got another playmat style available for you to add on to your pledge! This is the artwork for Beer Stand! This mat is available for a $20 add on. International backers please add an additional $5 for shipping.

 

Card Sleeve, 20 Pack add-on

High-Quality A Player's Choice Card-Sleeves in Pink, White OR Oktoberfest Orange to sleeve your entire Tanto Collection! International customers, please add $15.00 for shipping.

 

Card Sleeves, 6 Pack add-on

High-Quality A Player's Choice Card-Sleeves in Pink, White OR Oktoberfest Orange to sleeve your copy of Oktoberfest. International Customers please add $5.00 for shipping.

Reprint of the Tanto 1 & 2 Playmat add-on

Our beautiful, high-quality playmats for Tanto 1 and Tanto 2 are available to our fantastic backers! International Customers please add $5.00 for shipping.

Anja Standard Sized Playmat Add-on!

Due to popular demand, we have added another playmat option... the Anja playmat! Again, International Customers please add $5.00 for shipping.
 

Big Box and Randomizer Deck Collector's Item! - $50 add-on


We can't show you just what this will look like yet as we haven't got the art approved and finalized, but rest assured... this will look amazing! 

The Big Box will have 4 sections inside so that you will be able to put ALL cards from Tanto 1-4 inside, sleeved, along with your promos. It will also include a deck of ALL General Maids (76 total) from Tanto 1-4 to be used as a Randomizer Deck! This deck can be shuffled before playing, and you would choose 10 maids to play with. These cards could then be put out on the table and you would grab the 10 random maids. This would change up your game every time! The cards in this deck will also have a different card back so they are easily differentiated from the regular cards.

We have a special offer for our Kickstarter Backers... this will ALSO be shipped with all 15 promos that are available with Tanto 1-3 add-ons! We wish we could show you this item, but we are still working out the details with Arclight. The idea is to have the artwork from each game shown on the front of the Big Box, and we need the OK from each artist. Additionally, this box will have a magnet enclosure lid and will be a very premium collector's item to hold all 1200+ cards from Tanto 1-4, your promos, your Randomizer Deck, and all of the card dividers too! This box will be a $50 add-on item. It is going to look so nice - we've got a sample box from the factory with the magnet enclosure... it will truly be a premium collector's item! Feel free to add on $50 for this box now, or you can wait until you see the art (trust me, you won't be dissapointed). Either way, you will be able to add on items to your pledge for the next month after the campaign ends.

Risks and challenges

We had hoped to get Tanto Cuore: Oktoberfest released in October of this year, but we realize now that just isn't going to happen. We are being more realistic with our new estimated release date of December 2014.

We have put out 3 previous editions of Tanto Cuore and we are not new this venture - we just need your help to get this game off the ground!
