About this project

 

 

 

Canasticus is an exciting new tactical card game for between 2 and 6 players. Played with a personalized deck of 108 fantasy character cards of wizards, elves, assassins, sorceresses and so on.

 

A cool and exciting part of Canasticus is that all of our characters are based on you, our backers.

When the campaign ends, you will send in a photo and we will base one of the characters on you. Or get together with your friends and order several decks and each of your decks will feature all of your characters. You could even have your whole company, club or team drawn into the deck.

Your character may also be included in other decks and may be played around the world, which we think is kind of cool. However, if you are shy, or require total privacy, you can choose the INCOGNITO Option (Now FREE) and your character will only be used in your deck (and we promise to keep our mouths shut.)

Check out our Rewards for full details.

Canasticus is great fun, compelling and totally addictive. The rules are based on the highly addictive game Canasta, which was a craze that swept the nation and indeed the world, in the 1950s. So, the gameplay is a proven success and we believe playing with a fantasy deck makes it a hundred times more enjoyable and playing when you are one of the characters, makes it a hundred times cooler as well.

If you want an extra copy of your customized deck, simply add £19 (per extra copy) to your pledge.

If you want a deck with more than one customization, such as you and your friends you can EITHER:

1. Select the Customized Deck and multiply the pledge amount by the number of people to be drawn. You will then get this number of decks. Each will feature all of your customizations.

- OR -

2. Select Customized Deck and pledge now. Tell your friends about the project and they also back individually. Then, when the campaign ends we will send you a survey with space for you to link your deck with others by adding their email address. All backers that are linked in this way will feature all linked customizations in all decks. Simple! (well, not simple, but we'll make it work)

  Show your support in one of our super-cool Canasticus T-shirts.
  Everyone will think you're in the Illuminati ! - (It's hilarious)

 

 

Canasticus makes the perfect Christmas gift.  Unfortunately the game won't be ready by then, but we'll send you a cool, free gift voucher, explaining the game will be sent as soon as it is complete.

Risks and challenges

Because our project is personalized, our greatest challenge comes if the game is a runaway success. However, we have anticipated this and already have a wealth of amazing talent we can call on to increase capacity in this eventuality, to help deliver an amazing product within a realistic time frame.
