An apocalyptic themed party game of survival, crassness, and keeping it together as your friends laugh so hard they wet their pants.

About this project

The End of the World Card Game is how normal people cope when the world goes to Hell...

The concept of the game is similar to some of the party games you may have played before. But the End of the World Card Game adds a new twist... an apocalyptic twist.

Unlike trying to survive a legit apocalypse, this card game is pretty simple. Each round, the round leader reads a survival scenario from a red "Survival" card, and everyone else answers with their best white card which we call "Provision" cards.

This first launch edition is based on the "Zombie Apocalypse." The scenarios we've come up with are designed to match perfectly with our over-the-top Provision cards. We promise that if you're not rolling on the floor laughing after 5 minutes, you're probably much better people than we are.

 
What's included?


If your eligible for a printed version based on your Kickstarter pledge, you'll get the core set of cards as well as 10 extra Survival Cards and 30 extra Provision Cards, written exclusively for our Kickstarter backers.

The printed cards are 2.5" x 3.5", professionally produced and digitally cut (with Samurai sword precision) so they're easy to use.

Each set contains 560 cards - 110 Survival Cards and 450 Provision Cards (including the 40 exclusive cards).

The non-Kickstarter exclusive sets will only give you 100 Survival cards and 420 Provision cards.

Kickstarter

We've thoroughly researched what we need to package and print the game. The minimum amount of money we need for a printing is $10,000, which we're raising with this project. This is in addition to our personal contributions as well for this initial printing run. We want our skin in the game right along with yours!

About Us

We're a group of 4 friends that love zombies, the apocalypse, and most of all, ridiculously awkward interactions.  We're the type of peeps that say out loud what everyone is thinking. And then absorbing all the ridicule from people with much higher brows than we possess.

While our concept isn't new by any means, the execution is all unique. If you love party games of inappropriateness, lewdness, and optional partial nudity, then you've landed on the right project.

We are also currently offering the End of the World Card Game as a free print-at-home project on our website, http://www.endoftheworldcardgame.com, where it can be downloaded, printed, and cut out just for a few bucks in ink and paper. And about an hour of your time.

But even better than getting paper cuts and having to get up off the couch, is having us do the work for you! With your support, we can print a high-quality, professionally-produced and boxed product, shipped to your door. Not to mention we're pretty freakin good at what we do.

Shipping

For the standard boxed sets and the survival kits, shipping is included in the pledge price ($10-$15 will be added for international shipments).

If you have questions about shipping, email us directly at endoftheworldcardgame@gmail.com and we'll help you.

Bulk Orders

If you'd like to purchase several sets of the End of the World Card Game, please contact us at endoftheworldcardgame@gmail.com and we will arrange to save you money on shipping. If you'd like to purchase more than ten units, we have bulk pricing available.

Risks and challenges

With any project, there are always hills to climb and mountains to traverse.

Our obstacles are few, but daunting. Like many previous tabletop game projects, production delays for our final product are our biggest hurdle.

With that in mind, we are making a personal pledge to our backers. My team and I are using our own personal savings as a down payment to the printing company before our Kickstarter campaign even launches.

This will ensure printing starts as soon as possible and our backers get their rewards as quickly as possible. We are using all Kickstarter funds to order as many standard box sets and survivor kits as we can to meet demand.
