Get ready to rumble and rummage in a race to see who can collect a winning collection of treasures from your neighborhood dumpster.  You need to beware, as you are not the only animal prowling the alley. Other players are looking to ruin all of your hard work, in this fast paced game of combat, strategy, luck and trash.  Play your favorite character as you and your friends get ready to prove one animal’s trash is another animal’s treasure!

Object of the Game/Winning:

To earn the right to rummage the dumpster, and the other players' hands, you need to defeat the other players in dice based combat and win your rumbles.

Rummage through the trash, while collecting trash cards and trying to create matching sets of items. Match the image and names of the items, on the face of your cards, but don't forget to rummage from your opponent's hands. 

The goal of all versions of Dumpster Brawl is to collect enough matching trash items to make at least three (3) sets of three (3) or more matching items (such as three pizza boxes, three apple cores, and three soda cans) while not having any extra cards in your hand that are not part of the matched sets you are laying down. All extra cards, that do not match your victory sets, have to be discarded before you can lay your sets down and win.

Note: You can have more than three sets and the sets can be larger than three cards.

All play styles of Dumpster Brawl require the collection of the trash cards.

There are thirteen (13) types of trash items and seven (7) of each item in the game.

While rooting around in the trash you are, also, looking for booster cards that can help you win and defeating the blocker cards you might encounter as they can hurt your chances at winning but beware the slugs!

Note: You do NOT have to have the "Trash Affinity" set to win - this is a slight error in this game play video.

  • Early-Bird Discount: There is no "early-bird" pledge level because every copy of Dumpster Brawl! comes at a discount compared to its current planned MSRP of $30.
  • We Listen: We feel that the backers are the core audience and their input and contributions will be extremely helpful.
  • Kickstarter Backers Come First: The backers come first. If not for their support this project would not come to life.  So, that means you'll get your game before traditional distribution begins, and we will always be completely honest and transparent with you.
  • Because We Need You: We've covered the costs of testing, design, and most of the art, but we can't manufacture and ship the game without your support.
  • Kickstarter Deluxe Edition: See above for information on the Deluxe Kickstarter Edition. It will be available only during this Kickstarter campaign.
  • RETAILERS: If you are a retailer and would like to find out more about Dumpster Brawl! and an opportunity to support this product, please email directly.

We want to assure our backers that our desire is to make the game as beautiful and high quality as possible, and affordable.  We want the game to be as beautiful as it is fun.  In this section, we are going to share some of the production specifications of the game for those that are interested in those kind of things.

Cards and Placards : The cards will be full color on both sides.  Printed on 300 gsm card stock (this is comparable to a MTG card  270-330).  The cards will have a varnished finish to help protect them from the oil on your hands. There are linen finished and upgraded card stock stretch goals.

Dice : 12 custom silk screened dice (2 colors). 16 mm in size and made of heavy acrylic/plastic material. There is a laser etched version of these dice that will be a stretch goal upgrade.

Instruction Book : 128 gsm art paper, four color, varnished and saddle stitched.

Risks and challenges

SolarFlare Games has the knowledge and skills to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible. We have worked in gaming and publishing in various capacities for many years.

We believe in quality above all else and have chosen to use a well established production organization that has deep experience in game production. We wanted to ensure that we used a organization that was located close to our home office, that we knew had a successful track record of producing successful and quality products in conjunction with independent game developers.

The last project, Thrash-Car successfully funded and was delivered. We have learned where the pitfalls are and have planned how to avoid them, while keeping you, the backer, informed with what's happening every step of the way - and not just while the campaign is running.

When funding closes and production starts, we aim to provide the most up-to-date information possible regarding each stage of Dumpster Brawl! until it hits your table top. This includes: Final Artwork, Card Setting, Production Start, Production, Shipping and then Delivery to you.

We believe that honesty is as important as regular contact with our supporters. You can expect the very best from us, no matter what. Our exacting standards and desire for quality and fun mean that you're guaranteed a game that looks just as good as it is fun to play, while also lasting for many years of family fun!
