WHAT IS KAM'ON

KAM’ON is a strategic card game that allows you to immerse yourself into the ancient land of Egyptian burial grounds, where every player impersonates a mummy that is on the hunt to find his 4 organs in order to reclaim his throne and win the game! The path to victory is not an easy one. There are many obstacles on the quest to reviving your mummy from the dead. Your opponents will do whatever it takes to obstruct you from victory. They will cast spells against you, and create detrimental consequences that will challenge your ability to think fast and make the right decision in order to conquer them.

Your triumph is not only based on the cards you hold in your hand, but on your ability to barter with everything you have in your possession in exchange for the card you need. You can not rely on luck alone, you must use skill to win! KAM’ON is a game where deception is absolutely legal and trusting your opponents puts you at risk! Collect all 4 organs and awaken your mummy from the dead into the light of day!

The Starter Deck contains 112 cards. The Premium Deck contains 144 cards (112 cards + 4 new action cards per 8 players = 32 additional cards in total), while the Master Deck contains 156 cards (the 144 previous cards + 12 new foil Cards). All packs are delivered in an exquisitely designed KAM’ON box, while the Big Poster and Deck Box are available with the purchase of the Pharaoh's Casket.

The KAM’ON Rulebook contains an explanation of all 3 decks : Starter, Premium, and Master. KAM’ON’s rules are simple, yet you will find that it becomes increasingly interesting with every single play. Download it here: 

BARTER OF BLUFF YOUR WAY TO VICTORY 

Exchange cards at the risk of being tricked. There are many ways of strategizing to win the game: you can trick and trade with your opponents but you must be sly.

Negotiation and trading is KAM’ON’s main attraction. When all cards are played, the bartering phase begins. During this phase, you may negotiate and trade with other players in return for their cards, or at the risk of lethal consequences. Trade to gain an advantage and possibly the very card you need to win.   

But beware! Behind every trade is the possibility of getting deceived. Players will be encouraged to go back on their word or trick you whenever they get the chance. You may never see the cards you so desperately need, promised to you by your adversaries. 

THE AGREEMENT IS HONORED

The perfect trade. A fair trade. Both parties hold up their end of the bargain, everyone gets what they want. The players are happy and develop trust. The first step towards an alliance. 

THE AGREEMENT IS CHANGED

A minor deception. A player receives the card promised to him and decides to give a different card than what he agreed upon to the other player. A dirty play yet not a complete scam. A minor bluff.  

YOU LIAR!

You’ve taken the plunge and taken the risk of not getting anything in return and that was exactly the case. Giving nothing in return for a card is the best way to antagonise your opponents. Execute it at your own risk.   

TRICKERY

Play tricks in spite of your opponent.    

Use the cards wisely because you will be under fire from your opponents. You don't want to mess with the power of the gods!  

Artifacts can help you defend yourself or inconvenience your adversaries. Revenge is sweet but it's not always the path to victory. 

The Starter deck consists of 112 cards. 8 mummies that allows you to play a match with up to 8 players. 32 organs, 4 for each mummy and 72 cards including creatures, artifacts, transplant cards and spells

In the Premium deck there are 4 new action cards (32 additional cards in total) to make the game even more intriguing and unpredictable

The Master deck is not for the faint of heart with 12 new foil cards each with unique powers

The Pharaoh's Casket contains the Master deck (156 cards including 12 foil cards). A large High Quality Poster (24x36 inches / 61x91 centimeters) depicting one of the KAM’ON characters. An Exclusive Deck Box to store and transport your deck. 

Initially drawn in pencil, traced in India Ink in black and white and then scanned in HD and digitally coloured. An intricate process that enriches the uniqueness and beauty of this deck. Exquisite designs with meticulous details hidden in every corner of each card.

It was a dark and stormy night in Italy when four friends were sitting around a table chatting about an unusual but interesting topic. Deviant burials. Luca Cesari, an archeologist and one of the creators of KAM’ON had initiated a conversation about deviant burials due to his fascination and his recent encounter with them.  

He went on to explain to his friends about how he was onsite in Bologna, at the train station where they had recently discovered deviant burials. The tombs were filled with skeletons that had shown signs of mutilation and decapitation. The corpses were placed face down in the tombs and bolted to the walls. This was said to have been done due to fears and beliefs by the people that the dead would rise again and grasp onto another life, capturing the living soul.  Luca then went on to tell to his friends about some of the most magnificent burials in history - The Great Pyramids. He spoke of a common misconception regarding the pyramids.  Many people believed that literally tons of bricks were used to build the pyramids as a fortress to keep out thieves.The truth is that they had built the pyramids to lock the mighty pharaohs in. He also explained the method and process of embalmment. This is a complex ritual that starts with removing the organs of the dead, conserving them in urns, leading to the burial of the mummy inside a sarcophagus, and therefore preserving it. 

One of the friends at the table asked, “What would happen if a mummy came back from the dead and awoke from their eternal sleep?”  “What do you think they would have done to keep themselves alive?” This very conversation between the four friends is what sparked the idea for the KAM’ON card game: The mummy that was buried, comes back to life desperately trying to recover his organs from inside the urns. He will stop at nothing using spells, trickery, and artifacts to achieve his goal and Regain his Kingdom. That is the true story of how this thrilling card game came to life. 

Risks and challenges

Every project can encounter obstacles. The main one being the balance between cost and distribution, while keeping quality a priority.
