About

Hammer Blasted, which means exceptionally drunk, is a new incredibly easy to learn pub game by Operation World Party Gaming. It's a card game for 2 to 8 players, and individual rounds play in ~2 minutes. The deck is very simple: Just the numbers 1 through 5 for each player.  That's 40 cards, packaged in a compact card box with a set of rules, and it's everything you need to play. 

What's in the deck? 

The cards are based on strength of alcohol: 1 is a glass of water.  2 is a can of beer.  3 is a glass of wine.  4 is a shot of whisky.  5 is a handle.  (The card images below with backs of different colors make up the "Base Deck" or "Miniature Deck").  

Rules

To play the game every player puts one card face down.  The first bidder says a number.  You can either raise or call on your turn.  When a bet is called flip over the cards and tally the number.  If the tally is higher than the bid then the bidder wins.  If the bid is higher than the tally the caller wins.  The winner is the first to bet next round.

If it's played as a drinking game then the loser drinks, the winner (may) assign a drink, and if the count and bid were exactly the same then everybody drinks.  Please don't plan on driving or dialing after playing Hammer Blasted.  As a simple rule to go by if you can't read or understand the rules it's time to stop playing.  It's your responsibility to drink responsibly!

If it's played as a gambling game then everyone antes, each raise requires a bet, the winner is the first to win three calls. (ties go to the bidder).  

(We explain explain the rules a little differently in the gameplay video, but they mean the same thing.  There is an error in the game video and we're working on tightening up that language).

Rewards

The reward levels for this campaign are pretty simple: How many decks do you want and what do you want the cards to be stored inside of? Here are samples of different decks we're offering.  All cards share the same card backs:

A deck can come in a tuck box, a fancy tin, or an exclusive tin.  

FANCY TIN- Images are still on their way but it will be silver with gold lettering.

EXCLUSIVE TIN- Images are still on their way, but it will be black with gold lettering.

Paper Type

The cards will be printed on standard 300gsm paper with an aqueous coating like normal playing cards except the cards in the exclusive tin, which will be printed on plastic.  This will ensure they survive many layers of beer, wine and booze spilling onto them.

Hey, what if you want to sponsor a new deck to be created or some other time and money intensive project?  Let us know.  Ping us and we could create a custom pledge level just for you.

FYI- The number and depiction of alcohol on your card does not dictate how much you have to drink.  This is a heavy drinking game and straight alcohol is not recommended.

Risks and challenges

This game is straight forward. A couple decks that are already finished. The tarot deck is ready to go, and the basic deck is already available on drivethrucards.com as a Print and Play and as a printed deck. Two tin options, which we can handle. We still have some more art to draw for the Animal Deck and the Alice in Wonderland Steampunk Deck. That may take some time. However, printing a few skins of the same game is easy compared to creating 3 different versions of the game like we did with GETSOME. We have the benefit of experience from having a funded campaign before and have thus delivered product through our chain before. We feel confidant that we can manage this project as well or even better than we did last time.

Making 1,000 copies of the game is pretty important, so having enough backers to allow for a bigger print run is essential. We're trying to keep our prices low enough so that we can do a big run to help defray the cost of printing, bulk shipping, storage, individual shipping, and especially international shipping.
