Bitcoin Empire - the Bitcoin card game for 2-4 competitors
Compete with your friends to collect the most bitcoins before they do! Bitcoin Empire is a new card game with a unique theme!
Bitcoin Empire is a card-based building and resource management game. We developed it in a board game cafe after playing Dragon's Hoard.
It's designed for board game geeks and bitcoin enthusiasts. It's a great way of introducing your friends to cards and crypto-currency.
We've beautifully designed all 54 full colour, poker sized cards and play tested it extensively. All we have left to do is raise some capital, print it and ship it.
Each player selects a character card. The characters are pretty evenly matched but you can use a dice roll or coin toss to settle fights over popular characters. Next, each player is dealt two cards from the deck. Each turn is comprised of three phases: The mining phase, the draw phase and the action phase.
The Mining Phase
Your character and exchanges generate one bitcoin each. Draws one card, secretly looks at it and place it face down under each of your exchanges/character. Each exchange/character has a card limit denoted by bitcoin icons.
The Draw Phase
Add one card to your hand. You can either draw a card from the deck or pick up a face down card from your exchanges/character.
The Action Phase
Reveal one card from your hand to the other players and resolves it's function. During the action phase, you have a lot of options. You can:
Build an exchange by placing it face up to the right of your character.
Employ a professional to work for you by placing a skill card under your character card.
Claim to be Satoshi Nakamoto - increasing all of your skills.
Sign a message from the Genesis block - increasing all of your skills and causing all of the Satashi Nakamoto cards to be discarded.
If your law skills are greater than another player; you can play a lawsuit card against them causing one of their face down cards or exchanges to be discarded.
If your coding skills are greater than another player; you can play a hack card against them causing one of their face down cards or exchanges to be discarded.
If your marketing skills are greater than another player; you can play a smear campaign card against them causing one of their face down cards or exchanges to be discarded.
The headhunter card allows you to take a skill card from another player's character and add it to yours.
Lawsuit, hack, smear campaign and head hunter cards played against you can be negated by revealing a bribe card. Both the bribe card and the attacking card are discarded.
End of The Game
The game ends upon completion of the player's turn drawing the last card from the deck. The player with the most bitcoin (face down cards in front of them - not including the cards in their hand) wins the game.
We're offering customised character cards in addition to the standard game characters. Become a character in the game! Send us a photo of yourself (or a friend) and we will illustrate you and create a character card with your chosen statistics. But be quick as we only have four cards available.

Risks and challenges
The cards, the tuck box and the instructional booklet have been designed already. There are no big risks.
We might encounter problems with our printing company but we've used them before for personal projects and they did a really good job. We plan to print more games than we sell so if you are missing cards or you receive a damaged game; we can send you a replacement.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
