A strategic card game of vampire herd management and minion acquisition for 2-3 players that plays in about 30 minutes.
In Noble Blood, players take on the roles of ambitious vampires vying for control of their city. Players will compete to assemble a herd of humans to feed on and create a team of vampire minions capable of earning them the power and influence they need. The vampire with the most power and influence at the end of the game wins.
Noble Blood is easy to learn but stands up to serious gameplay, rewarding skillful play over luck and offering a lot of variety from game to game.
"The game takes a play or 2 to get the right groove, but is rewarding, quick, and fun once you’ve gotten the rhythm down. There’s 50 different nobles, each with their own special abilities and stats, so there’s a lot of replay value and strategy to try out here." - Robert C.

“This is a fast, easy to understand, easy to play, and fun card game. I really like it.” - Parent Geek, Fathergeek.com (click to read full review)
"I really enjoyed Noble Blood and think it would be an excellent addition to any family’s or gamer’s collection. It’s light, but deep. It’s easy to play, but demands players use strategy and tactics if they want to be competitive. It’s a game that can be easily taught and then played again and again at the gaming table without going stale." - Cyrus Kirby, Fathergeek.com (click to read full review)
Each player begins the game with 1 vampire. Each round begins with 6 Noble Cards in a central 'city' area (or 8 cards in a 3 player game). Each vampire, on its turn, can take a noble from the city to add to its herd and turn a member of its herd into a vampire minion. Each vampire gets its own turn, so each time a player adds a new vampire minion, that player gains an additional turn every round. Every action in the game costs blood, so players must also make sure to have plenty of humans in their herds to feed on.
Each of the Noble Cards is split into 2 sides (a human side and a vampire side). Each noble begins as a human and uses the stats on the left side (the human side) of the card. If a vampire turns the noble into a vampire, the stats on the right side (the vampire side) of the card are used for the rest of the game.
Each of the 50 different nobles in the game can be converted into a different vampire with its own unique speed, blood capacity, and special power. Players will acquire and control several of these vampires over the course of every game. The huge range of possible combinations of vampires that a player can wind up having on his or her team makes it unlikely that a player will ever use the same team of vampires twice. This encourages players to try new strategies every time they play and gives the game great replay value.

Risks and challenges
We have taken the time to get this project right before launching this campaign. We have deliberately kept the project extremely simple to facilitate smooth and efficient fulfillment of all rewards. We have also outlined a clear plan for the production of the game with the manufacturer.
The game has been through hundreds of test plays and the final art is ready to print. We can send the project off to the manufacturer the moment our funding goal is reached .
The manufacturer producing our game produces many of the most popular games on the market. We are confident that we will get a high quality game into the hands of every supporter in a timely manner.
Our biggest challenge is getting the word out. We are counting on you to let people know about this game!
