FAT STACKS: The Pancake Stacking Strategy Card Game

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. 

FAT STACKS works best with 3-6 players, takes about 40 minutes for a full game, and is recommended for ages 14+!

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! There are over 11 different disgusting toppings to ruin your friends' day!

Finishers!

In order for your beautiful (or disgusting) stack to earn a final score, 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.

What's in it for you? Glad you asked! 

Pledges Above $5

Any pledge above $5 will receive two high resolution printable pancake-themed poster files. Print them out and hang them in your kitchen or your game room! 

Pledges Above $15

Any pledge above $15 will receive a Print and Play version of the game as well as the posters!

Pledges Above $30

Any pledge above $30 will receive the game and all previous rewards!

All cards are printed in beautiful, full-color, 3.5" x 3.5" goodness!

Each game includes the following:

 In addition to the regular game play components, backing this Kickstarter will get you an additional, Kickstarter-exclusive Finisher card! Like all Finishers, it'll come as a set of ten, so that means 166 cards total

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!

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!
