About

I am the GREATEST!!!!

This fast paced card game is perfect for quick games with friends.  

You are playing to assert who is the greatest super hero or villain in your city.  Will you prevail?  Are you the GREATEST!?!?

Secret Weapon

How to play:

Players begin the game with 5 cards each, and take turns playing two actions. Action - Hero cards are played in your own scoring area and gain you points. Action - Villain cards are played in opponents' scoring areas, and take away points. Action - World cards are played in the middle of the table, and replace any existing world cards. They change the rules of the game slightly. Reaction cards are played against action cards to counter them, and reverse the order of play. The game ends when there are no cards remaining in the play deck, and you arrive at a player who can no longer play an action. Then total up the scores to determine who really is the greatest!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest issue is getting all of the art together in time to have printing completed and the product shipped in November. We have reached out to several artists, and have back-ups for our initial choices in case issues arise. We have also limited the number of cards that each artist will be working on so as not to overwhelm any single contributor.
