About

Assassinate assigned players by getting them to say their “kill word” during a normal conversation. Acquire their target and kill word and move on. Last one standing wins! Don't get assassinated!

  Card Assassins is not your average card game. It is played at all times behind the scenes and can be played with up to 12 players! It is the perfect game for group trips, competitive roommates, back-stabbing co-workers or courageous families.

"Ive come to the conclusion that it's certainly one of the most. If not the most, creative concept for a game that I've ever heard of!" -Sean Okeef, Factory Boys

 Each player holds up their assassin card so the others can see the name of their assassin. The back of the card will identify your target depending of the number of players in the game. The assassin cards ensure that there will only be one winner.

One kill word card is dealt to each player face down. They then pick one word out of the three options. Pick wisely depending on your target.

Your goal is to get your target to say the chosen kill word in conversation. If you succeed you yell "ASSASSINATED" They are then eliminated from the game. The assassinated player tells you their target and kill word in private and you move on to assassinate more sad souls!

 Design and Quality

Quality is very important to us. After rounds of revisions and prototypes we've found the right supplier to produce high quality waterproof card.

 Each deck will be coming in a hard box so you can easily bring Card Assassins with you wherever you might go.

Prototyping and Playtesting!

We've created countless prototypes since starting the project. Each time testing, revising, and reworking until we got it just right. Then it was time for play-testing outside of our immediate audience. 

 We then created a print & play version and hosted it on our site. We were very fortunate to have more than 1000 people willing to play test it.  After months of continued refinement Card Assassins is ready!

We are so excited to share Card Assassins with the world, we just need your help to make it happen. Thank you Kickstarter!

 More about us

Matty and Carter have known each other since they were 5. In that time they have played every competitive game that has come their way. Years ago they were introduced to a derivative of this game. It involved each player writing down their own name and fix words. You would mix the names and the words up separately and draw from the piles to get your target and kill word. It was a fun game, but it had its flaws. It took too long to get started, there would be multiple winners, and the kill words were garbage. While on a trip they brainstormed ways to fix it. After a long night they had their first crude prototype. After versions, updates, and tweaks Card Assassins was born. Have fun!

Risks and challenges

For production we are planning on working with Ad MagicFor and for shipping fulfillment we are going to be using Amazon's Fulfillment Service.

At the end of the day, we want the best companies handling this project. This ensures that the quality of the game is amazing and it's delivered to everyone on time.
