Churrascaria: A Cutthroat Game of Gluttony Relaunch

$11,553

Churrascaria is based on the experience of eating at a Brazilian-style steakhouse where waiters bring unlimited skewers of delicious meat directly to your table.

Players are trying to eat all the succulent meats that appear on their plates while avoiding the equally delicious but ultimately unsatisfying sides and desserts that get in the way. All the while, food theft, plate swapping, and general backstabbing keep the food flying and the steaks high. In the end, the person who consumes the most meat wins!

And for those who just like to read rulebooks:

For all items in this Add-On section. Just increase your pledge amount by the amounts specified, and then you will be able to add the items to your reward in BackerKit after the campaign ends.

We would love to support any retailers who would be interested in carrying the game by providing special retail pricing. If you are an interested retailer, please contact David or Will at info@absurdistproductions.com more information.

Churrascaria is essentially complete - art and playtesting are complete.
The files are ready to send to the printer and get this game made. We just need your help to make it happen! Our goal is based on a lot of research and quotes from various printers and fulfilment companies. 

Thanks to you, not only did we fund Churrascaria, but we managed to unlock every single stretch goal we had planned. 

We have looked at the numbers and decided to provide free shipping to all US backers for all reward tiers. 

Each and every backer is important to us and we hope our game spreads around the world, but let's face it, shipping is very expensive. To help us deal with that, we've partnered with Quartermaster Logistics for all our fulfillment needs. Their expertise will ensure your packages arrives safe and on time, with every game professionally packed and protected.

Shipping to all backers in the United States will be free. International shipping is shown in the table below broken up by country/regions. We have worked with QM Logistics to get international shipping rates as affordable as possible, and Churrascaria will ship customs friendly to the EU and Canada through their partners.

While we are doing our best to offer the game to everyone who might want it, we cannot take responsibility for any lost or damaged copies to Russia, South America, Africa, Antarctica.

Churrascaria is a labor of love, but this unique and absurd little game can only be made with the help of folks like yourselves. Because producing a quality game isn’t cheap, we’ve decided to use Kickstarter to share the game with the world and help raise the funds required to make our dream a reality.

We are a small, independent game development studio out of Oklahoma City, consisting of two guys with a dream and an eye for the absurd. Along with the help of a very talented local artist, we've been able to bring our game to life. We are:  

David Thomas on Game Design  
Will Thompson on Development
Ellie Jang on Art

Thank you very much for your support! Without it, this would still just be an absurd dream.

Risks and challenges

This is our second attempt at getting this game funded here on Kickstarter. We came close the first time and we learned a great deal which we have put into making this time better. The game is complete and ready to be printed. We’ve already secured manufacturing through Shuffled Ink and fulfilment through Quartermaster Logistics in advance of launching this Kickstarter.

We won’t lie - stuff happens. We know that delays can occur, but rest assured, any delays will be the result of ensuring we can deliver the highest quality game to you. We promise that, no matter what, we will be upfront and transparent as we work to get Churrascaria out to you.

We’ve supported Kickstarter projects ourselves and know all too well how annoying it is to wait two years to receive the product you gave your hard-earned cash to support. Though it's our first game, we are committed to bringing you "Churrascaria: A Cutthroat Game of Gluttony" on time and with the quality it deserves.

Thanks again for your support!
