About

Epic Awful Fantasy is a cooperative adventure card game for 1-4 players which pits ridiculous heroes against nasty villains in the absurdly strange world of @Awful Fantasy.

Explore ancient ruins, delve deep into abandoned castles, and solve unsolvable crimes! Then, when you're done with all of that, go home and play some Epic AF, where you can shuffle cards, roll dice, and fiddle with tokens!

Check out the in-progress rulebook here.

The Game System

Epic AF uses a wildly popular adventure card game system developed by Adam and Brady Sadler originally seen in the highly successful Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game.

Now, Adam and Brady worked with us to use their amazing system for the most absurd adventure card game we could devise. The result is Epic AF.

How To Play

Check out the in-progress rulebook here.

Choose to either destroy your foes, aid your friends, search mysterious locations for glorious treasure, or take a much-needed rest to regain your strength!

The enemy horde closes in! Dangerous minions lurk in the shadows or emerge to battle your heroes up close and personal.

Journey carefully, as each marvelous location on your quest affects the game in mysterious ways!

Move the peril track one step closer to doom as deadly peril effects disrupt your plans, adding dangerous new obstacles to overcome!

The Art

Conor Nolan is back and he's pissed.

Conor's beautiful comic style has returned and it brings a spectacular flair to Epic AF. Here are a few illustrations Conor has done so far:

In addition to illustrating the art used in the cards, Conor is illustrating the cards themselves! That means every single part of each card is an art-child of Conor's brain-parent!

 What People Are Saying

 

 

For Epic AF, we will be charging shipping through our pledge manager, Backerkit, after the Kickstarter ends.

We are using Ship Naked to ship, just as we have with our first project, Awful Fantasy: The Card Game. The games are sent from Panda Game Manufacturing's location China to the United States, and then sent from Ship Naked's US hub to their hubs around the world, then to you.

The following is a list of rough estimates for shipping Epic AF. Keep in mind these are just estimates for a single game of Epic AF, and do not include costs for add-ons.

  • USA: $10
  • Brazil, Mexico, Russia: $30
  • Rest of World: $15

Risks and challenges

This is our second game and, like the first, it is card-based.

We will be working with the same manufacturing and fulfillment partners as we did with Awful Fantasy: The Card Game. These now established relationships will allow us to focus on the important thing: creating a truly Epic Awful Fantasy game for you to play.

DELIVERY

Estimated Delivery is just that, an estimate. There are a variety of unforeseen circumstances that may move the final shipping date forward or backward. Please take note of this fact as you pledge for your copy of Epic AF.
