Tricked-Out Hero combines the best of trick taking card games with a dungeon crawl all in one game. You take on the role of one of the heroes and gather tricks in order to gain tokens that will power up your melee and magic prowess, health, and - if you aren't careful - the power of the monsters you are fighting.

As you kill monsters using your tokens and powers, you gain victory points in the form of gold. The person with the most gold at the end of the game wins.

3 - 5 Players,  ages 12 and up, 20 - 30 minutes per player.

This is our third game that we are bringing to Kickstarter. Our other two games (Flapjacks and Sasquatches and Hirelings: The Ascent) were both successfully funded and delivered. We are now bringing our favorite game to the masses. I grew up playing all sorts of trick taking games - everything from Hearts to Euchre to Communist Bridge (if you know that one I'm impressed). I also grew up playing RPGs. In Tricked-Out Hero, we combine the two for a great game. We first demoed this game three years ago at GenCon. This might not have been the brightest of ideas because ever since I have had a strong group of gamers demanding to know when it will come out. If I don't have it ready before GenCon 2014 there may be a lynch mob. There is a reason you never see me in these videos. That mob will only recognize John. Yay!  As always we will bring great quality, awesome rewards, and a belief that our fans come first. I hope you back our game and get a little Tricked-Out.

Risks and challenges

This will be our third game. We have done this twice before and each time we have improved and learned. I do not foresee any challenges that would prevent us from delivering this game if the project is successful.
