About

About The Game!

In FAT STACKS, you and your friends compete to build the tallest and tastiest pancake stack! Use classic pancake flavors and toppings, as well as some ~special~ ingredients other chefs wouldn’t dare to use!

Players create stacks of pancakes by playing Pancake and Topping cards from their hand.  Players can place positive cards on their own stacks, and play negative cards to sabotage other players' stacks.

Sabotage Your Friends!

Does someone look like they're winning?  Sabotage their pancake stacks with disgusting ingredients like hair, dead fish, mystery meat, and more! 

Create Delicious Combos!

Use combos called “Perfect Pairs” to double the points of your ingredients. Combos affect both positive and negative ingredients, so you can savor the perks or dish out the misery.

Build your stacks your way. They could look like delicious s'mores... or resemble a certain political figure.

Finishers!

In order for your beautiful (or disgusting) stack to earn points, you must top off the stack with a Finisher card.  These special cards are placed in the center of the table and are earned by completing the objective on each card. 

When a finisher is played, it's special effect triggers immediately and your stack's points are locked in which prevents the stack from being sabotaged by other players.  Any stacks that don't have finishers on them at the end of the game don't earn any points.  This includes stacks that have a negative total value! 

Trophies

Fat Stacks includes 3 different Trophy cards that can be earned throughout the game: Fattest Stack, Cleanest Plate, and Mudslinger.  These optional cards can be added to a game for advanced play.  They are exchanged often, and give lots of bonus points at the end of the game!  With Trophies in play, you'll need to focus on specific strategies and goals to stay at the top of their game to secure the bonus.

Why Fat Stacks?

Inspired by cute food-themed games like Sushi Go and the inherent stack-ability of playing cards, Caitlin started designing FAT STACKS in October of 2016.

On a whim, she emailed Magfest to ask about advertising the game and, to her surprise, was offered a spot in the Indie Tabletop Showcase of Magfest 2017. We weren't sure how the game would be received, and were completely stunned by the response. We knew that we had something worthwhile and were determined to eventually bring it to Kickstarter.

Tasty Testimonials!

Expansions???

We currently have a holiday-themed expansion prepped and nearly ready. If this campaign gets funded, we will add the finishing touches and release the expansion via a separate Kickstarter in December of 2018.

Who Are We?

We are Caitlin and Andy of Candy Coded Games! When we met, dreaming big was the first thing that we had in common. We bonded over our love of games, creativity, cute things, and memes.

In 2017, we formed our company, Candy Coded Games, in hopes of making our dream of creating games a reality. Since then, we have been working on this game and streaming on Twitch when we can.

The success of this Kickstarter would not only allow us to release FAT STACKS into the wild, but it would also inspire us to make even better games and continue chasing our dreams!
