About

Pain Pages is a multiplayer competitive game from 2 to 5 players, but it’s even possible add another player, just in case one of your friends hit your door without calling you. All the players should help the people from Bambazoo’s Kingdom solving quests, challenging many Bosses to get the keys of the Safe Zones and hide into it in the less time possible, to avoid being crushed from Ivor’s book pages. But pay attention, Safe Zones are always in a lower number compared to the number of the players, so, be ready to face up to epic battles between you players and the chance to being hated from your friends who’re gonna see themselves left out the Safe Zones.

 

The game is immediately available in English and Italian, but, after the kickstarter campaign, in case of success, we will make available, as soon as possible, the pdf rule-book downloadable from our site www.lastheartbeatgames.com in the following languages:

Now let's explain more details about how the game works!

The purpose of the game is equip yourself for the ultimate battle in the less time possible!! To do this, you have to avoid being crushed by the pages of the book (Stages/Scenarios), not by chance the game is called Pain Pages, and get in the safe zones as soon as possible! Enter in the safe zones will not only allow you not to be crushed, but, especially, to earn gold that will be indispensable to buy the most powerful equipments of the Bambazoo's Kingdom, THE BLACKSMITH EQUIPMENT! Forged only for you!
(You can see The Blacksmith special cards in the Game Components Section!)

  •  Quest Cards
    Let's do some examples about how the Quest Cards works:

These are just a few examples of Quest Cards, just to understand how their mechanism works. Quest's typologies are multiple, you will find missions where you will need to retrieve items stolen to the realm's people by Ivor's henchmen, others where you will have to prevent that the Bosses forming an army to attack the city, others where you have to defend Bambazoo's people from unexpected attacks, while others are easier, where you just have to bring some working material to the various craftsmen of the Kingdom, not to mention the Special Quests "Thirst for Blood" where you will be ordered to kill an Enemy Hero. So be prepared to be kidnapped by the Bambazoo's Kingdom!

  • Dice
    we have three different types of dice (you can see them in the game component section), the numbered dice, as we said before, to open the treasure chest, the offensive dice, red, needs to attack and the last one, the defensive blue dice needs to defend yourself from attacks. The special effect of the last two are explained in details below:
  •  How Pain Pages weapons work
    Let's start by saying that Pain Pages is a fun, fast but at the same time very strategic game. For this reason, we have made sure that the heroes of the game do not have a specific class, we simply have them prepared for a certain kind of struggle through the stats, just for make them different, that does mean, for example, that Ozzy who prefers the use of magic, can even use melee weapons, will certainly be less effective than Nigel in a physical clash but, maybe, using a potion, could even beat him! In a nutshell, everyone will be able to equip themselves as best as you think, depending on your style of play and the weapons and armor you will find during your adventure.

    Now let's take some examples:

Explanations end here.

The game has taken about 1 year of development and relies on solid and tested mechanics. All the artworks are done and also any stretch goal that requires further art are completed as well.
Impronta Team will be our partner for the manufacturing and we really trust in their professionalism and experience in the game industry.
