About this project
Steal all the Cake is a 2 to 4 player card game where you seek to steal all the cake from other players, but beware of the mighty effects of eating those delicious cakes, if you eat too much you might find yourself with an empty plate... So grab a slice of the action and start dispatching all these cute and mischievously thieving animals to do your bidding!
Will you have what it takes to become the King of Thieves?
The game can be played by anyone of any age group, yes even aspiring little criminal raccoons with the budding desire for cake.
The illustrations have a lot of charm and can be enjoyed by the young and old alike.
The rules can easily be learned in 5 minutes. As the saying goes, easy to learn hard to master, fits well here.
Steal all the Cake can be played with 2, 3 or 4 players, in teams or free-for-all. Should you want to raise the player limit to 8 you can simply add 2 decks together. Not enough dough for you? You can keep on stacking it, each deck you add will increase the player limit by 4, the more the merrier, in this game you can never have too many players. Will you go so far as to build a staircase of cake to heaven? Each game will average 15 minutes of frenetic cake thievery, with the occasional pause for thought for the most devoted schemers.
We made sure there is enough luck involved that an inexperienced player can beat a battle-hardened cake master, but more often than not, the master will win.
The goal of the game is, of course, to STEAL ALL THE CAKE!!! (Just think of yourself as a mischievous little raccoon with a compulsive cake hoarding disorder). If you ever happen to find yourself out of cake, either by being the victim of criminal thievery or by virtue of your own gluttony, you lose the game. Each player starts with cakes that they themselves can eat to use special CAKE POWERS.
The deck also contains a lot of cute Machiavellian animals to make your time easier in acquiring all those sweet CAKES!
The more you play the more strategic the game gets. As you start to acquaint yourself with the game you will develop a better understanding of when to eat or to save your cake. The trick to becoming a master thief is balancing the line between hoarding and eating too much cake. OR YOU CAN WALK ON THIN ICING AND SUMMON A GOAT APOCALYPSE!
There are two general types of cards in the game, Cake cards and Animal cards.
The Steal all the Cake card game comes in a cozy cocoon of a box that contains a world of wonders within.
Inside you will find the Core Deck - which is comprised of 56 funny and tastefully illustrated cards suitable for all ages, plus the elusive Criminal Apocalypse Goat Armageddon card.
You will also find the legendary Black Scroll of Thieves which contains all kinds of trade secrets passed down from guild to guild (or instructions to learn how to play ;) )
We will be revealing all the cards at a rapid pace during the campaign, to save you the hassle of sorting through all the update posts we will also keep updating this image so you can always come back here if you want to look at the full set!
One last warning before you proceed to acquire the Internet, Entertain Me! NSFW expansion booster pack: the 20 unbelievable cards in it contained possess advanced and highly strategic effects that only the bravest should dare to harness, for they will induce very complex game interactions.
In addition, this adventure is not for the faint of heart in a sense that our cute little animals may engage in drinking, drugs, violence and improper language while they carry out their savage acts of thievery.
We advise that this expansion be acquired only by players aged over 21 due to the mature nature of the content from the internet culture it draws upon. Beware, for when you open Pandora’s box the marvels contained within may have you experiencing an endorphin rush that could leave you marked for life or trapped in a state of cognitive dissonance of both bliss and misery.
You have been warned.
(If despite all cautioning you do actually decide to get this atrociously amazing expansion, know that to play it you need only add it to the core deck. That means it is not stand-alone and you will still need the core deck to play it.)
Additional shipping costs are as follows:
United States - +0€
European Union - +8€
Rest of the World - +20€
Should you want more decks or boosters, please add 25€ and 10€ respectively to your pledge for each extra deck and/or booster, we will send you a survey after the campaign in which you will be able to fill out your request (we may need to figure out extra shipping if you are outside of the US).
What do you want?
We want games!
How do you want them?
We want the community to be very invested in participating in the polishing of the game, as such we will regularly post polls on our updates so our backers can vote on various subjects related to the game, for example picking which delicious type of cake should be added or which feature you would want to see implemented, which key animals are missing in the game or what card from our hidden arsenal you would be most excited to see revealed next.
WE WANT YOU to make science with us on our wicked laboratory, help us make this the game you want to play!

We decided that starting a kickstarter campaign was the fastest way for us to get the game out there and to grow it with the help of the online community.
Without you the creation of this game will not be possible!
We already had so much fun playing this game and we cannot wait for you and your friends to enjoy it as well.
If you love the idea of dispatching hordes of raccoons to steal mountains of cake from idle and helpless rabbits, please back this project and help us bring this cake stealing extravaganza to the real world, or we might evaporate from the sheer power of our desire to make it.
Such gratefulness, many thanks. wow.
Risks and challenges
If you have come this far it means that you either skipped through a lot of information or you are a true hoarding raccoon.
We understand the feelings of fellow hoarder raccoons and as such we promise to keep you updated on the ongoing process of the project, during and after the campaign, until the game is delivered to all our backers. After the campaign ends we commit to make at least one update per month until every last one of the thieves that we released into the world is happily stealing cake.
We want this to be a campaign in which we deliver the rewards as fast as you can bake your microwave brownies.
All the development and art has been completed, and the final game is as good as ready to be manufactured at this very moment, we just need your help to be able to start production. That being said, it is our first project and there can be unforeseen challenges that may delay us, should we face such challenges we will always keep you updated all the way to the end. Despite that, we are confident that what we lack in experience we make up for in preparation and in our drive to make this game a reality.
We have thought out the expected troubles we may face along the way and sought out multiple avenues through which we will be able to solve them. We already have deals setup with printing, manufacturing and fulfillment companies so that we can start production as soon as the campaign ends.
After all is said and done, we can only make it simple for you, support the game and we will send you a box filled with awesome cakes, funny cards, and a lot of cute thieving criminal animals for you to play with your friends.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
