About

President Wars  is a card and dice game that takes the traditional game of war and transforms it into a battle of epic proportions. The deck contains every president from George Washington to Barack Obama and they are each given a hit point value based on real life statistics determined by time spent in office, popularity and war experience

On every battle card we added facts about  each president. This game represents our country's complete leadership over the past 238 years.

Easy to learn and fun for all ages young & old, plus with so many card combinations this game has unlimited replay value and should never be the same game twice. Every battle brings together a different era in American history.

Every Game contains: 44 battle cards, 3 official dice ,  Official rules & Kickstarter promo cards.

International Buyers

Shipping Note- If you live outside the United States There will be a $15 shipping fee added to all international pledges after funding period ends. Why are we doing this? The extra shipping money we receive when our project is live gets added to our overall goal. Since our goals are slim, we cannot figure in for international shipping. Instead of limiting our project to the U.S. we decided to offer this alternative method.

Rules Of War................

1-2 Players       Ages 8+

2 Player

 PDF  Format

Each player chooses their favorite die- Republican, Democrat or Independent........  red, blue or white

Shuffle the deck and deal each player 22 cards. -Do not look at them- Place them in a pile face down in front of you. Both players turn over the top card on their pile and battle. If your card wins the battle you place it on the bottom of your pile for future use and if your card loses you put it in a separate pile, this card is no longer playable. A player wins when they successfully defeat their opponents entire army.

1 player

Choose between 1 and 6 cards from the deck either by random or by choice and these will be your battle cards. Play through the deck to see how many presidents you can eliminate before you are taken out.

Rules Of Battle............

Each player rolls their die at the same time. The player who rolls the higher number gets the strike. The damage= difference  in dice. Opponent then must subtract it from their battle card. The battle is over when one card loses all their hit points or an eagle is rolled.

Example- If player 1 rolls a (7) player and player 2 rolls a (1)......Then player 2 must subtract 6 from their card.

Battle Dice- 10 Sided- Numbered 2-9 with 2 symbols

Eagle- If you roll an eagle, you steal your players card and place it on the bottom of your pile and the battle is over.

Shield- If you roll a shield you defend your opponents attack and they must subtract their total roll from their hit points

Reviews

Dad's Gaming Addiction

I’ve covered a lot of games over the past few years, but I have yet to see anything like “President Wars”.  It’s a one to two player card game that is currently seeking your help on Kickstarter (as of 2/12/14).  For those of you who hate getting wrapped up with the intricacies of politics, you needn’t worry…”President Wars” is more of a casual royal rumble of sorts.  Before I get into specifics, I’d like to thank Jesse Heuser from Activity Makers for reaching out to me and providing me with a prototype copy of the rulebook.  It’s important to note that I didn’t actually receive a copy of the game, so this preview will focus more on the rules and my initial impressions of them.  Still, those just discovering this game for the first time may learn something new............Read More

I hate Solitaire and I hate War. I am really not a fan of simple card games. There, I’ve cleared the air… So why then do I enjoy this game? Allow me to elaborate:

I am one who considers himself patriotic, I love history and I am VERY political. Rest assured I will keep my political views to myself during this review. There is nothing I enjoy more than spending time with my son and finding something we can do together that engages him and makes him ask me questions. I think that a strong curiosity about our nation’s past is one of the greatest things our children can have in helping them to shape a bright and responsible future. President Wars scratches that itch...................Find the rest of our Rreview here: http://opentheboxgames.com/2014/02/09/president-wars-battle-through-the-centuries-review/ Please comment and follow our reviews! -James, Gillian and Iain

Funding

This game is just a prototype that I have designed. We are looking for funding to pay for production and some of the art.

Testing

After creating the prototype I played the game through with many people including family, friends and my 8 year old daughter and 9 year old son. The concept was easy for everyone.

Risks and challenges

As with any business venture there is some risks but we are confident we can fulfill this project and see it through as we have in the past with our coins and websites.
This is the first game but not our first custom product, (see bio) for a few years we have been using manufactures from around the globe. We will be using the same company we have used in the past.
