Donut the card game, originated by Stephen Sams. Visualized in collaboration of, Heather Sams and Steven Dawson.

In development for more than a decade. "Originally, the game was just symbols drawn on cards with a marking pen. It just grew. Now we have 170 awesome looking cards. The game play has well and truly been tested that's for sure." Stephen Sams.

Now it's a fun fast colourful strategic card game, ready for it's debut to the world at large.

For 2-10 players aged 7+. It's easy to play and hard to put down.

The object of the game is to give the other players as many cards (Donuts) as you can whilst getting rid of all of your cards by playing them onto the discard pile (Crumbs) in the centre of play. 36 different card actions allow for attacking, defensive or neutral game play inducing belly laughs abound as Donut leaves the whole family chomping at the bit for more tasty donut action.

The Donut card game comes shrink wrapped in a top - bottom style box. (See example down page). The game consist of 170 cards derived from 101 unique images. (See example down page). The rules and instructions are included in the box, on a double sided gloss A4  sheet. The rules and card descriptions are available at, so you can conveniently refer to them with your smart phone or tablet computer.
