Hello, and welcome to Texas Hold'em with ZOMBIES. Come join the fun!
Act now, pledge here, and get THZ, for less than retail, and FREE shipping on domestic orders!!
Texas Hold'em with ZOMBIES, THZ, as we like to call it, was created to entertain both the poker fan and roleplaying fan. THZ is an adventure card game.
Players spend rounds of game play betting their life on winning poker hands, collecting much needed item cards, and killing zombies.
Each round, player's compete to play zombies against the other players. Unless you have the right item cards to kill them, barricade against them, or lure them back against the players who sent them, the undead will eat your chip stacks, your life.
A game is won by the player who best masters the knowledge of suited card play, reading people, learning weapon and defense item card combinations, and a bit of good 'ole' fashioned luck!
(Follow link above to see THZ being played, live. The large number of THZ adventurers is growing daily.)
Now, on to pledging our first goal, $7,079! We will refer to this Kickstarter as the Underworld Series of Poker. And, we are going to play this like a game of THZ. When we make our goal you will have made it to the "flop", in poker terms that means we will see the first 3 community cards. When we pass that goal, the game will progress to the "turn." Good luck. May the strongest pledger win the night!
NOTE: At this point, we have opened up our first stretch goal, The Quick and the Undead, 8 playable characters in a collectible, plastic case. When we make our first goal, we will unlock the "the turn", our stretch goal, and all pledgers advance closer to winning the hand and surviving the night. Look BELOW and see what pledgers get for FREE!!
STRETCH GOAL # 1, THE QUICK AND THE UNDEAD, playable character cards!!
As promised, here is the first stretch goal of our Kickstarter. We are super excited to introduce 8 playable characters, all in a slim-collectible plastic case, to you. Having your own character to play in THZ really opens up the action-adventure or role-play element of our infectious game. The art and look of these guys is superb.
Each playable character is unique in their look and background story. With them, we introduce Blind Abilities. A blind ability is a skill that is unlocked when the very first community poker card is played. We call this card the action suit.
If the suit of this card matches your player's Blind Ability suit, your player will be able to use their Blind Ability for the remainder of the current hand. Each player has two different suits (club, spade, heart, or diamond) and six unique Blind Abilities. The abilities unlock and become more powerful as the game progresses.
Here is how you get, The Quick and the Undead! We simply need to increase our goal from $7,079 to $8,079. When this happens, all pledgers that have contributed $25 or more will get The Quick and the Undead for FREE, yes, FREE. So, let's tell more friends and family, and maybe look at pledging a little more ourselves.
Take a look at a couple of our characters below. As I said, the art and layout is superb! Message me with any questions.
Risks and challenges
As we mentioned, THZ, is in its second edition. In fact, that is why we are launching this Kickstarter. For the last couple of years, we have handmade most of THZ's game components. What started as an after-work hobby and labor of love, has grown into a classic story of supply cannot meet demand.
This is a two-edged sword in that too much need verses not enough product might be a good problem to have when the idea is good, but....
Our customers are having to pay too much money and wait too long for product. Plus, more and more stores would like to carry us, but they have the same needs.
Basically, THZ needs to be mass produced in order to get its price point down, free up the creating team to keep creating the game's expansions and awesome storyline, and enable THZ to spread its little zombie virus all across the globe, muhaha!
This is where you come in, the pledger, friends of THZ. In supporting this Kickstarter, you will be, in essence, co-funding, along with us. Help us in getting this great game to store shelves. Even more importantly, let's get, Texas Hold'em with ZOMBIES, to the living rooms, pubs, and social avenues where people still value tangible game playing and physical, social interaction.
We have partnered with a great manufacturing company. Their product is top notch and manufacturing time is quick and professional. As any fan of THZ knows, our game components are stellar. Our playing cards are casino quality. Our art is world-class. Our components are strong, defect free, and have a super long shelf life. You can expect this same commitment to quality when we mass produce this second edition.
We have already established this growing product. You are co-funding success. So, go grab a reward, now, before the sun sets and the undead take to stalking us again!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
