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!?!?
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!

People LOVE this game, and now we can bring it to the world as a whole, with great, funny, super hero themed art.
Art Director: Trevor McCray
Art for this project has been carefully developed, utilizing several talented artists. This game will have colorful and fun super hero art.
Lead Gamer Designer: Christopher Cottrill
Chris Cottrill has been a judge for many popular games, such as Magic: the Gathering and Heroclix, and spent several years as an event coordinator for the Heroes' Retreat - a game store in Richmond, KY. He has used this knowledge of rules mechanics and experience in learning what players like to create this new card game!
We are raising funds for art and printing of the game. Your support of this campaign will make it possible for us to bring this game to your hands, as well as to game stores in communities across the country.
We are providing "I am the GREATEST!!!!" decks to our backers who pledge $9 or more for this campaign.
Heroes of the Century backers will have their names placed on a card contained within each deck. These backer names will appear in the order of their backer number.
The Greatest! Backer will also receive special game development materials, as well as their image on a card, and a special rule for them alone!
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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
