We're proud to bring The Walking Bread - a Pay What you Want expansion for Gingerdead House - to Kickstarter.

For those familiar with Gingerdead House, The Walking Bread introduces zombie-themed cards that introduce a lot more resurrection cards. It's an awesome expansion to the game that adds even more chaos to the survival struggle that is Gingerdead House, and it even speeds up the game time.

Here are a few of the new cards.  Click here to see them all!

 

For those new to Gingerdead House, this game and its expansion will be the most fun you'll ever have losing in a game...Seriously.

 

  • 4 Player Boards - The boards represent your lawn.
  • 100 Player Defense and Trick Cards
  • 80 Monster Cards
  • 25 Action Cards
  • A tiny rule book
  • Plastic Insert to keep everything snug
  • 10 The Walking Bread Expansion Cards

Gingerdead House is a tower defense board game for 2-4 players where players own a gingerbread house in a fairy-tale forest, but soon learn that a ton of bad guys, and newly-introduced zombie gummies, want to eat your delicious home. You'll protect your home by ironically using parts of your house as weapons and defenses. If all else fails, you can screw over your neighbors...because ultimately, a dead neighbor is better than a dead you.

The game takes a minute to learn, and gets even the newest of players immediately into the fun and chaos of surviving the brutal waves of sweet-toothed villains. 

  • On your turn, you reveal an action card - it tells you how many monster cards to place on to your field.
  • The monster tells you where it goes on the board. 
  • You play as many cards from your hand as you want to help your survival.
  • The monsters all move closer to your home. If it enters a space with a defense, they fight - the highest number survives.
  • If a monster gets to your house, you lose!  Last player or team alive wins.

 

 

 

"Game looks and plays awesome. We love the randomness as a nice change to our normal game night, and the slight deduction social element of who is holding back good cards so who do you try to go after now or later. Friends have ordered a copy now, and brother in law ordered five, one for himself and the rest as xmas gifts because he enjoyed it so much. It's definitely a great gateway game for new gamers" - Jordin Peterson (Previous Backer)

"This game is great and I love the ups and downs and the unpredictability. Can't wait for the expansions" - Josh Mc (Previous Backer)

"Got my game whilst on holiday, and had it sent over just to be able to play it! And I'm glad we did, had a couple of fun evenings with it. Even my wife likes it - that really says something!" - Coen van der Wel (Previous Backer)

"This is a fun and accessible game! Fast game play, take-that elements, interesting strategies, easy and clear rules, with emergent game play." - Thing12Games (Board Game Geek user)

International Backers: 

You may be asking why you can't receive the base game by itself or why the shipping is so expensive. Well...the game is so tremendously expensive to ship (4 pound game), and we already have games with international vendors so check them out! The vendors linked below have the game, and be sure to check your local store to see if they can snag you a copy, and pledge here to get the expansion!

Pixel Glory

Team up with fellow wizards to vanquish the sinister monsters that lurk in the dungeon, and save the nearby village. This is a noble and honorable quest, and... oh, who are we kidding? In reality, you're a greedy wizard who is all about fame and personal gain, and your fellow wizards are cut from the same cloth! Prevail over your opponents by learning the best spells and using that knowledge to outmaneuver and kill-steal in the dungeon, so you can gain admiration of the townsfolk, fame across the realm, and achieve Pixel Glory. In the first phase, the town phase, players will be drafting spells using an auction mechanic. Players will then take their decks into the second phase, the dungeon phase, where they will work together to defeat monsters; however, only the player that deals the lethal blow will get the fame for it. There is a lot of interaction and engagement due to players fighting over learning the same spells as well as fighting over fame.

Risks and challenges

We are offering guaranteed Christmas delivery for US backers, so there is a bit of a challenge there, but no risk! We offer a 100% refund policy for anyone not satisfied. The base game is already made and currently is in the United States; we are manufacturing and overnighting the expansions from China if we fund. We've delivered 4 Kickstarter campaigns early, and 1 on time. We're experienced and take pride in smashing expectations.
