About

Hi there Kickstarters

I need your help to get my card game Pro Wrasslin' Battle Royale (PWBR) into the eager palms of gamers the world over.

Choose from 11 ring warriors and battle friends and family with spine-shattering suplexes, bone-breaking backdrops and punishing powerbombs!

Utilise special skills, double-teams, run-ins and lethal foreign objects to gain that competitive edge! 

The game has been in development for a while now. I did a limited run of the first edition a couple of years ago. Players seemed to love the game and provided lots of great feedback. This enabled me to tweak the rules to make them even more awesome. More exciting is the fact that I've got all new full colour original artwork from the very talented Natalie Todd to bring the mayhem to life!

I'm pleased with how the game plays, it's fast, simple enough to pick up quickly and encourages players to outdo one another with gaming banter.

Only one player can win the match, this game design means that no-one is left out of the fun waiting for the game to end. Also the pinfall dynamic leads to  shifting alliances and game play which rapidly changes from beating an opponent down to trying to save them just so you can pin them in your turn!

PWBR is for 2-6 players, takes about 25 minutes to play and is suitable for ages 9+.

The PWBR game is a standard size (3.5" x 2.5") deck of 78 cards: 11 Wrasslers, 61 deck cards and 6 rules cards.

Here is a (very) basic partial play through video to give an idea of how the game works. The idea was to show a 3 player game, but Col was called away so Grant did double duty, playing two hands!

We talk a bit about PWBR in this episode of the Dicing With Design podcast:

http://www.thepodcasthost.com/dicingwithdesign/episode-15-lords-of-war-kickstarter-and-pro-wrasslin-news/

You can find my back catalogue of games over on  www.princeofdarknessgames.com

The goal of this Kickstarter is to enable me to print 100 decks and get them out to keen gamers. The money raised will help me cover the costs for artwork, layout, printing and shipping. 

Hopefully things can grow from here as folk discover the game for themselves!

The game will be fulfilled by DriveThru Cards (www.drivethrucards.com). 

STRETCH GOALS

If PWBR makes it to £1500 then I'll add in rules for extra match types: tag team, hardcore, cage and over the top rope battle royales!

If we can hit £2000, then I'll be able to go ahead with tuck boxes as well which will be pretty cool. At the moment the cards come in sturdy clear plastic cases.

Risks and challenges

Production, printing, and shipping delays are always a concern with a project like this, but I'm confident that I can create a high quality game.

Since the design for the game is finished, the files are now with the wonderful people at DriveThru cards. They have a great track record in helping small press publishers put out top quality products. I've already received the prototype version and it looks fantastic.

Finally, although this is my first kickstarter I know a lot of cool people from the indie games design community who are crowdfunding veterans and can steer me on the right path!
