Knock-Out! Global Smackdown
A 2-6 player free-for-all party-strategy game. The goal is to beat up your friends and look awesome while doing it.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Mon, August 20 2018 4:43 PM UTC +00:00.
Get ready to compete in a crazy, cutthroat Fighting Tournament. The goal? Win glory and glittering Trophies.
In Knock-Out!, your goal is to become the crowd's favorite Fighter in a ruthless underground fighting ring. There list of rules is short, so you'll have to use crazy weapons and outsmart your opponents to rise to the top. Players duke it out until someone gets KO'd and then earn Trophies depending on how much they impressed the crowd.
KO!GS has 8 unique Fighters each with their own Stand, D20 Die, and Fighter Mat. Details about their abilities can be found under the "Choose Your Fighter!" section of this page.
The basic rules of Knock-Out! Global Smackdown can be learned in just 5 minutes, but the strategy of the game is in the variety of cards, Fighter Abilities, and the different Arenas. Below is a simple version of the rules. A detailed version can be found for download below.
During the Action Phase, you can take up to 3 Actions:
When an attack is successful, the Target takes Damage and the Attacker gains Glory Points based on how awesome their attack was.
There are two kinds of attacks in Knock-Out!. Melee attacks allow players to pummel someone from close up. There are also Range attacks, which you can use to snipe from across the map.
Shields can be used to block attacks when they are flipped from your moveset. They can only block one type of attack, though, so you'll have to be sure that you've predicted your opponent's strategy.
Quick Cards can be used to perform combos and insane turns with fun and helpful card abilities. These cards don't require Actions to play, so they can be used at any point on your turn.
After you finish taking your Actions, each player can set up to 2 cards from their Hand into their Moveset to use on their next turn.
Because you have to show what kinds of attacks you're using a turn in advance, other Fighters can try to predict your strategies before you use them.
Each Match ends when someone gets a Knock-Out (loses all their health) or becomes the Fan Favorite (reaches 15 GP).
Knock-Out! Global Smackdown has 8 dynamic Fighters that you get to play as. Each of them has their own ability that gives them an edge in the Arena. Read about them below!
We poured our noggins into Knock-Out! and tried to include everything that we thought would be fun into the base game. That being said, there were a few things we would love to include but aren't financially possible at our current goal. We would love to create as much content for you as we can!
Risks and challenges
The hardest part for us would have to be that this is our first game on Kickstarter.
That being said, we have definitely done our homework. Manufacturers, artwork, gameplay, and financial plans are all ready to go. If we get funded we will be committed to delivering to our backers. Any problems involving manufacturing and shipment will be clearly communicated to all followers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
