About

 

Canasticus is an exciting new tactical card game for between 2 and 6 players.  Played with a personalised 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.  

Remember, your character will 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, choose the INCOGNITO OPTION (by adding £75 to your pledge) 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.

A Few Sample Cards
A Few Sample Cards

 

  • Basic Deck: 108 cards of 15 different characters 
  • Full Deck: 108 cards of 108 different characters 
  • Customised Deck: 108 cards of 108 different characters - one drawn as YOU

 

 

 

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 1950’s.  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 a deck with more than one customisation, such as you and your friends you can EITHER:

1. Select the Customised Deck of your choice 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 customisations.

2. Select your Customised Deck option 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 customisations in all decks. Simple! (well, not simple, but we'll make it work)

Risks and challenges

Because our project is personalised, 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.
