Thanks for havin' a look at Farmageddon, the frenetic farming game. This here's 5th Street's third Kickstarter project, and with YOUR help, we can be 3 for 3 for having successful projects.
Farmageddon started as a self-published title by Grant Rodiek with artwork by the talented Brett Bean. After over a year of development and refinement, we picked it up for publication!
"It is literally that smooth of gameplay, that it just keeps going and seems to end too soon... 9.5/10" - Knate Baker
"Farmageddon is a hilarious, action-packed experience that is a whole lot of fun." - I Slay The Dragon
"Farmadeggon falls somewhere between “brilliant” and “awesome” on my game scale." - Father Geek (Note that the previous review was for an earlier version of the game; it's even BETTER now with new cards and mechanics.)
"I know a lot of people love the artwork in Bohnanza but Farmageddon completely blows it out of the water." ... "So what do I think of the game? In short, I love it." - Jim Jamieson
"But all in all I enjoyed every second of it and I would play this over Bohnanza anytime - yes, I am a sucker for theme." Ben, SpieLama.de
"Overall, Farmageddon is a highly enjoyable and versatile game; I have used it on nights where I just want a fun, light-hearted affair in addition to breaking it out as a gateway game for the non-gamers in my family." - Games & Grub
"Even though I destroyed [my opponent], this game still has a very family friendly feel to it. The card art is really nice and enjoyable, and the game is quick to learn. I’m really looking forward to the additional cards that were revealed as an overfunding goal on Kickstarter." - JTagmire, Championland
"We highly recommend it. It's a good, accessible game at a good, accessible price. Do it" - Cherilyn & Chris Kirkman, Dice Hate Me

What yer backin'
When you back Farmageddon, all funds will go toward production and shipping of the game and any future 5th Street projects.
What yer gettin'
When you back Farmageddon, you'll receive a discounted price of $12 per copy instead of the retail price of $15 along with free domestic shipping (or reduced cost international shipping).
You'll also receive a PDF copy of the game to tide you over so you can start stealing each other's crops right away while you wait for your official copies to arrive on your doorstep, which should be by July.
This edition will also feature linen finish cards and a fancier box than previous editions, too.
POSTER KICKER: You can also get an 11x17 poster with your reward by adding $7 to your backing. This is what you'll be getting a poster of:
- $20 for Castle Dash
- $10 for Crow and the Pitcher
and email us to notate your account accordingly.
Goal 1: $6000 - Grumpy Melon watermelon seeds. Everyone who backs us at least at the "FARM FUTURES" level will receive one pack of Grumpy Melon watermelon seeds per copy to grow yer own Grumpy Melons. Just add water, fertilizer, ...and maybe some magic marker.
Goal 2: $8500 - The FrankenCrops. Every copy of Farmageddon ever printed will come with 10 wonky crops for when you have the basic game down. (See early sketches of the crops here!)
You can see more about the FrankenCrops in this update.
Thanks again fer checkin' out Farmageddon. We hope you join us in makin' this fine game a reality. Be sure to check out the rules and join us on Twitter at @krinklechip (the publisher) and @HerrohGrant (the designer) to ask any questions!
Here they are:
...and here's a FAQ for the Action cards, too:
Kickstarter is a crowdsource funding platform that helps fund creative projects. If the funding goal is reached, the project creator receives the funds pledged by everyone. If the goal is NOT reached, no funds are received and backers are not charged.
If you are an international backer, we will leave out the seeds and send you the nifty Grumpy Melon packet only.
Farmageddon will come in a 2-part lidded box.
