Imagine if you could embody an outlaw character with the power to challenge or otherwise embarrass your friends. But be careful, for those same friends wield powerful item cards that threaten to change the game at any moment! Now combine this with a leveling system to keep it competitive and a damage system to make it vindictive, and this is BARPIG After Hours, The Latest Unholy Result of a One Night Stand Between Card-Based Role-Playing Games and a Mostly Ridiculous Party.
Following the highly successful Kickstarter in 2017 for BARPIG - The Adventure Party Game, the pigs are back with "BARPIG After Hours", a badder, meaner sequel that makes its predecessor look like a trot in the park.
Playable by itself stand-alone, or combinable as a fully modular expansion to the original game, BARPIG After Hours features 10 brand new characters each with their own unique challenges combined with 14 deliciously vindictive unique item cards to backstab your friends in this new fight for piggy supremacy. Get ready to play mean and messy,
What started as a series of drunken puns written down on a bar napkin one fateful night has evolved once more into a truly outrageous game, and our out of control hobby. Oh, and there will be (evil) pigs!
- Pick up and Play: Very easy to set up, play and introduce to friends. Guaranteed fun for everyone, newbies and seasoned players alike!

- Dynamic rounds: Each round is setup in 2 parts. Within these parts players interact with each other while collecting an arsenal of powerful item cards to defend or to attack.

Until then, you can choose from the following add-ons at the end of our campaign when entering your shipping information:
We love how Board Gaming communities continue to grow and invite more people into the fold. We also love how we're seeing our own little microcosms of BARPIG fans.
So, for you guys wanting to buy and ship in Bulk, we offer the option of community buy-ins.
Enter a custom pledge equaling the total amount for the games you want in your order (eg: 3 packs of BARPIG: After Hours = €60), and send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know this is a community buy-in. We'll send you a shipping estimate payable after the campaign ends.
Get your Game Shop to buy stock, and get Free Shipping!
More and more retailers are stocking BARPIG, but there's only so far we can reach ourselves. However, if you can convince your local game shop to get in touch with us for an initial order of stock during our Kickstarter, we can arrange that their shipment will contain you pledge. This way, you save shipping costs, and your local game shop gets to stock the hottest new Party game on the block!
E-mail us at email@example.com and we'll help you set this up.
Usually we offer BARPIG at competitive pricing to retailers worldwide. For this Kickstarter, we're going the extra mile in offering a flat low rate per pack of BARPIG After Hours and/or Original BARPIG pre-ordered during the campaign.
Beyond that, we have amazing inclusives that will boost BARPIGs retail presence, ensuring your returns come in quicker and the BARPIGs leave your store door faster.
We'll also promote your stocking of our games through our social media channels, and you'll be the first to have both amazing games available to your customers.
Please don't hesitate to email us and ask what we have to offer, firstname.lastname@example.org

We’ll make all the necessary arrangements accordingly.

Ever wondered who the creative and artistic mind behind the gorgeously colourful detailed artwork is. The world of Barpig is illustrated by the hand of the highly acclaimed Illustrator and designer Frederick van de Bunt, also known for his work on other games such as Adventures in Neverland and Revenge of the Dictators.
We will never forget the passion, imagination, and admittedly the charm Frederick showed for us during our very first meeting. It was as though he had been to the tavern himself, as though he personally knew each pig. As he showed us the preliminary sketches of the BARPIG tavern sign, we couldn’t help but be drawn to the story he had already created in his head. Still to this day, we wonder about how deep that story goes. And once again he nails it with the artistic atmosphere and raising the bar with BARPIG: After Hours.
Without Frederick BARPIG would never have been as successful as it was. So we thank him and encourage you to see for yourself what makes Frederick van de Bunt's piggy world so amazing.

HUGE Thanks to our all our amazing friends for helping us bring this crazy hobby to life, again! Words can never repay enough!
MASSIVE THANKS to our Kickstarter Backers from the original campaign who play tested the various early editions!
HUMONGOUS THANKS to all those lovely people we approached during all our play testing sessions for their great insight and honest feedback!
TREMENDOUS SHOUT OUT to all the Gaming Groups who hosted us for play tests and events. Especially the wonderful people at Utrecht Speelt!
Risks and challenges
This isn’t our first Rodeo ;-). That being said, we know the risks and challenges involved in Kickstarter campaigns, and wish to mitigate those risks as much as possible. That’s why financially we’re using our own savings for this project alongside the earnings from our goal amount. Likewise all Stretch Goal thresholds reflect the ability at that earnings level to fund the additional components.
All designs for the cards have already been funded and delivered, the game has been thoroughly playtested and at the moment of this campaigns launch is ready to hit the presses. Our manufacturer is standing by with established contracts, as is our dispatch company.
Everything about BARPIG is aimed at supporting and building our already fantastic community, and we’ll ensure After Hours will only aid in that journey.
Should you have any specific concerns, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your support you fantastic BARPIGs!
~ Johno & Phil
