About

THE BOXES AND GAME PIECES OR CARDS DEMONSTRATED IN THIS VIDEO ARE PROTOTYPES AND NOT THE FINISHED PRODUCTS.

Catch Them If You Can - is a strategic puzzle-powered FBI role-play card game. We want you to play a role as an Agent in our law and order FBI card game. As a detective, we want you to experience the daunting tasks that the FBI or other law enforcement Agents go through in searching, locating, and arresting notorious criminal individuals. 

REAL PHOTOS OF NOTORIOUS VILLAINS IN FBI CASE FILES

So we've selected some nationally acclaimed notorious villains in the FBI case file as shown in the profile pictures above, and you are assigned as an FBI agent  to search, arrest, and bring to justice one of these acclaimed villains just as the FBI did. 

So the question then to you is - In a crime drama card game of 2-6 players [playing the role as FBI Agents], what kind of an agent will you be? The BEST or a BUST?

THE GAME PREMISE

Players [playing the role as FBI Agents] are assigned to perform the daunting task of search, pursuit, and capture of a notorious criminal in an FBI case files. Players take turns to draw 2 cards per turn from a combined mixture of puzzle pieces of different villains, and variable strategy cards inside BOX USA [Country of investigation], to assemble the complete image of their assigned notorious villain. [players must look away from the box when drawing]. 

The first player to assemble the complete image of his/her villain wins the game, gets the badge, and becomes the FBI Director.

The FBI and law enforcement agents have their hands full every day, chasing to catch and bring to justice criminally-minded individuals, who always play the "Cat and Mouse" or the "Hide and Seek" game with the FBI. These criminals range from hardcore drug kingpins, to mafia bosses, check forgers, con artists, impostors, bank robbers, serial killers, and the list goes on.

So we put together this fun and unique interactive FBI role-play card game for you to compete with other players as an Agent. But we just don't want to pile up cards as a deck for players to simply draw like UNO, or any other regular playing cards. We want you to experience a similar daunting task that the FBI and other law enforcement agents go through in their daily assignments. So we've created the GAME MECHANICS that makes you do that. 

Don't miss out on this first time ever Kickstarter exclusive limited offer. Get a card game made for you completely customized with your family's name and photos, and your family members becoming the main characters. Send us your family's names and photos and we will deliver to you your own family game package.

ABOUT FULFILLMENT 

We're already making arrangements with manufacturers and many well known fulfillment companies to make sure that no matter how many people pledge, everyone gets their "Catch Them If You Can" quickly after the campaign ends. We don't want this to be a campaign where you have one year wait for your game to arrive. This is why we're not offering any complicated reward tiers or add-on's that would delay the distribution process. We're keeping it simple. We urge you to support our project and we'll send you the final game package in return. Again, we can't do this without you.

HOW THE GAME WORKS

1. We created "BOX USA" to represent the United States where the majority of the crime, the "hide and seek" escapades, and the FBI investigations and pursuits usually take place.

But sometimes finding to arrest a criminal in a large country as the USA is a daunting task like finding a needle in a Hay stack, or putting together an intricate jigsaw puzzle.

2. We create the FBI search and pursuit shenanigans with the infusion of the jigsaw puzzle. We cut the 3.5" x 5" image card of each criminal villains into a 24 piece puzzles that each player [Agent] must locate inside BOX USA piece by piece to assemble their assigned villain in order to make an arrest. 

3. We have also created variable strategy cards as shown in the samples below to enhance your hand or to sabotage your opponents.

4. We then dump all the puzzle pieces [144 pieces] together with the strategy cards [15 cards] into "BOX USA" and mix all the cards together thoroughly to establish the daunting task of search, pursuit, and arrest.

5. Then players [playing the role as FBI Agents] take turns to draw 2 cards per turn from the mixture of puzzles pieces and strategy cards inside BOX USA to start assembling the complete image of his/her assigned notorious villain. [players must look away from the box when drawing].

6. If a player draws two puzzle pieces that belongs to another player, he/she keeps one as a hold against the owner and returns the other piece into BOX USA. [No player can hold more than 1 puzzle piece of another player at a time]

7. If a player draws one of the "STRATEGY CARDS", he/she must apply the card as directed. When a player draws a "STRATEGY CARD" that involves another player, the drawer of the card has the enforcement power over the other players.

 8. The first player [playing the role as FBI Agent] to assemble the complete image of his/her assigned villain wins and gets the FBI Director's Badge Card. The new FBI Director will assign players with villains in the next game to be played and maintain the game's decorum.

The game gets more and more intense and interesting with each puzzle or Action-card you draw as you perceive another player who might slightly be ahead of you in the assembling of his/her villain's image, and about to become the BEST Agent. We think "Catch Them if You Can" possesses both the thrills and the drills of a true FBI crime drama case.

Risks and challenges

Production of the card games is relatively straightforward.

We hope the Family Package will generate your interests.

We urge you to support our project and we'll send you the final game package in return. Again, we can't do this without you.
