About

Crypticuffs is a 2-5 player strategic card game featuring some of your favorite cryptids, such as Bigfoot, Mothman, The Loch Ness Monster, Yeti, Flat Woods Monster and many more. Playtime runs from 30-40 Minutes.

HOW TO PLAY!

Alpha: Bigfoot
Alpha: Bigfoot

  Start by choosing an Alpha (Bigfoot, Mothman, Jersey Devil, Loch Ness Monster, and El Chupacabra) to play the game as, be sure to read each Alpha's ability before making your decision. Place the correct number of health tokens on the Alpha's card. Each time your Alpha takes damage, remove a health token, lose all your health tokens and one more damage after that you're out of the game.

  Next, you'll use cards from a single shared deck to try and gain the advantage in battle. We wanted to give the feeling of being in the woods when these battles happened. A lot of the support cards help simulate that. The Lost Camper card makes an opponent skip a turn, Blurry Photo allows your Alpha not be attacked for a turn. There are also Research Team cards that allow you to look at an opponent's hand and take a card of your choice. Cryptozoologist cards increase the number of dice used in battle, and Men In Black cards remove cards from the field. And of course, possibly the most important cards in the deck: Ally cards. These are other cryptids that your Alpha can use to attack or defend for them in battle.

 HOW THE BATTLE WORKS

When it came to simulating the battle, we wanted to make it fun, exciting, and fair. Your Alpha can attack or defend using a 20 sided die. The Ally cards use 6 sided dice. The number in red is how many dice the ally will use to attack, the number in blue is how many dice they will use when defending. When the cryptids face off in battle the players will choose who to attack and defend with. The players will then roll the correct amount of dice and the highest total sum wins the battle. This is the core of the game, and how Players will win or lose the game ultimately.

WHAT COMES IN THE GAME.

We wanted to include a variety of different cryptids from around the world in the game, in doing so we have creatures from six different continents represented in the deck. To give you a taste we have in the game from Asia The Ningen, from Africa there is The Ahool, there is the Dobar-Chu from Europe, Curupira from South America, and from Australia, we have The Yowie.

At $30,00 everyone who backed the game will get 2 limited edition ally cards available only through this Kickstarter campaign. More stretch goal rewards will be unlocked the more the game is funded.

 We decided to make shipping as simple as possible, shipping in the US will be $7, everywhere else will $15.

Risks and challenges

This will be our first Kickstarter project, but we are very excited to jump head first into the world of board games.
For the most part, the game is finished, artwork and playtesting are completed. What is left is getting the artwork for the expansion completed and production/manufacturing. With that said there are going to be problems we can't control, such as manufacturing defects and production delays. But after doing our homework we are ready to take these problems head-on.
If our goal is met you'll receive the completed game and all stretch goals that come with it. We're thrilled to start our new journey into game making and very glad you're along for the ride. Thank you for giving us a chance.
