Tanto Cuore: Winter Romance

$167,226

Ignite the fires of love to escape the cold of winter! As Master of the House in Tanto Cuore: Winter Romance, you will employ maids and the newly-introduced butlers and build up your mansion (deck) as they serve you. It can be played as a stand-alone game or it can be combined with Tanto Cuore, Expanding the House, Romantic Vacation, and Oktoberfest!

In Winter Romance your maids and butlers can mingle with those of other players and form couples that earn you more Victory Points. Japanime Games is proud to note that any combination of the sexes will create a couple! When the game ends, the player who has the most Victory Points from the cards in their mansion (deck) is the “Ultimate Master” and the winner of the game!

Not familiar with Tanto Cuore? 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 on his staff (all his cards) is the “perfect master” and the winner of the game.

To learn how to play Tanto Cuore download the rulebook or check out the video below! 

 

 

 

We need your support on Kickstarter to add even more exciting events, romantic meet up spots and potential partners to Winter Romance! Japanime Games will offer exciting new add-ons and awesome stretch goal game upgrades through out the campaign.

Players will interact with other players' cards and use them to gain points. Meetup Spots are special double sided Building Cards. Like other event cards, you can pay their cost during your Employ phase, and once you acquire it you will put it face-up in your Private Quarters and you can then use the card's effect to make an Approach.

An Approach is when one Maid or Butler makes a romantic advance on another Maid or Butler. You may play a Maid or Butler card of any cost in your hand to Approach any other player. Then, the opposing player must lay down the highest cost Maid or Butler in their hand. Both players take turns looking at both cards in secret. You must then discard an equal or greater amount in love cards to make up the difference in cost between the two cards (ex. the cost difference between Sonny and Kimberly is 2, so you would discard 2 love cards). If you can do this, your Approach succeeds and you add both Maids and/or Butlers to your private Quarters and they become a Couple.

The player you Approached takes a Social Bonus card and adds it to their hand. You add a Friend card to your discard pile from the Town. If your approach fails, there is no penalty, so your Meetup Spot stays right where it is and it can be used on a future turn.

Trial cards can cause trouble for your couples and cost you Victory Points! Trial cards are double sided event cards which you can acquire during your Employ Phase and give to another player's Couple. If that player has a card costing 3 love or more in their hand, they can use it to Overcome the Trial and place it in their Private Quarters. If they cannot Overcome the Trial, the affected couple Breaks Up! 

During a Breakup, the player who played the Trial card picks one of the cards from the Couple they broke up and they put it in their discard pile, and the other Maid or Butler goes back to that player's discard pile.

Risks and challenges

Japanime Games is dedicated to improving our process with every Kickstarter. Our pre-press production team has already prepared final and approved digital game card files. Promo cards, box data and several of our add-on/pledge level items have not been finalized yet. Pre-press production is under way for these items and we will update backers throughout the approval and production process. The living Production Schedule graphic will be available with more details about exactly what we are working on.

Given the extensive time and research we have already put in to this project, we do not expect delays. However we will notify you immediately if any delays or the potential for delays do occur. We will explain in detail the source of the delay and offer a new estimated time frame to the best of our ability. AND we added 2 extra months to the expected time frame for this campaign, just to be safe.

One other thing to mention: While we are always open to your input and suggestions regarding both our Kickstarter management and the game itself please keep in mind: we are not the game developers or designers. This means that we do not control the game content. While we can make suggestions, almost all art and game play is finalized. Please keep that in mind when suggesting new promotional items and ideas.
