About

You and all your friends gather around the table to play. You have looked forward to this all week, craved another game ever since the last one ended, and finally you get to break out the deck and have some fun. Every once in a while, a card game comes along and captures imaginations in a way that other games simply do not. Ready Set Battle is poised to become the next such card game, bringing together people and generating hours upon hours of wild, zombie-infested fun.

The premise of the game is straightforward: you play as either the zombies or the human. If you are playing with the human deck, you must do everything you can do to defend against the zombie attacks, and if you are the zombies, you try to stage larger and more powerful attacks on each turn. Like the best of all games, Ready Set Battle is easy to learn but challenging to master, giving you and your friends plenty of reason to keep playing over and over and over.

Right now, we have come to you, Kickstarter, in order to raise the funds that we need to launch Ready Set Battle. Our funding goal is $1,000, and every dollar helps. We appreciate all contributions, both monetary and non-monetary, and we thank you for your time!

The Game

In the core set you will receive the zombie deck and the human deck.  Play as the controlling humans and try to hold off the fast-paced zombies.  Build up your power by increasing your military strength and eventually overtake the zombies.  Play the thunder down under card to control the pace of the game, and use your dreaded elite card to destroy zombies forever.

Play as the zombies and come out hitting hard and fast.  Zombie cards keep coming back each round with larger and larger attacks.  Use the zombie dog to give flexibility in the game, and turn your opponent's cards into zombies which really frustrates the opposition.

Win the game by reducing your opponents life to 0.  Will the fast-paced zombies win or the controlling humans win?  Get ready to battle in this exciting game!

Expansion

Oh, no you didn't.  Oh, yes I did!  I built an anime expansion to the game that is a must buy.  I wanted the expansion to be a different type of deck than the core game, and the anime expansion brings it with authority.  The anime deck allows you to heal but to also deal damage over time.  There are also 2 secret elite cards that the other decks don't have.  The anime expansion is truly amazing and a powerful addition to the game.  A local artist was used to make the anime deck, and I was truly thrilled at how amazing this deck became.

Basic Rules

The cards have a cost in the top left corner of the card.  The number of dice that can be rolled to attack your opponent is in the top right of the card.  The life of the card is in the bottom left.

Players use character cards to attack their opponents.  A character card can be improved by using an upgrade card.  An instant card can be played at anytime.

Players receive gold tokens at the end of the turn from gold cards and missions.  Gold tokens are used to purchase better cards.  

Once an opponent's life drops down to zero then you are the winner!

Risks and challenges

The core game is built and ready to go. The anime expansion is built. The expansion instructions are in rough draft form and need to be improved for readability. The risk is low that the game will not be delivered. Some of components of the game may change slightly depending on the production company that I go through.
