About


 It's a light strategy game of skill (and a little luck) that will cause a ton of eruptions at the table (especially when the Volcano Extinction is played!). 

If you love dinos and you love competitive games, you're sure to love Dino Duel.  Intrigued?  Let's show you what it's all about.  

We spent a significant amount of time thinking of cool dino names and great benefits.  Oh, and Keenan spent some late nights illustrating them to life!  Here are the core dinos that you will see in the game...

Core cards include 21 unique dinos and 7 unique extinctions.

The goal of Dino Duel is to collect the most dinos through duels and extinctions.  This is what it looks like to defeat a dino that rolls more dice than yours...

Duels are mini momentum swings throughout the game

The other way you can accumulate dinos in your fossil pile is through extinctions.  

Extinctions wipe out dinos, just like in real life!

The most powerful extinction is the Nuke (unlike real life, we think....) - it wipes out all dinos in play.  This is what it looks like to play it when the table is full!

Extinctions are like wild cards, they destroy active dinos and benefit you

We've also been expanding the universe of dinos and have stumbled upon some really amazing finds.  There are two completed expansion packs - one that is "As Seen on TV" inspired (featuring dinos like Snuggiesaurus Rex, Thighmastersaurus, and P90Xicus). 

Another fully baked expansion pack that is sure to delight is the DANCE DANCE DINO party pack.  If you don't want to embarrass yourself dancing, then this expansion probably isn't for you!

Dance like you just don't care!
Dance like you just don't care!

And here's Kicktops, a Kickstarter exclusive Dino that has been unlocked because of all of your support!!

And introducing another Kickstarter exclusive dino: Hippiesaur!

 And yet another Kickstarter Exclusive card has been unlocked!! Introducing Superbackadon!  

We've reached another incredible milestone and everyone has unlocked a Kickstarter Exclusive Extinction: God Mode!  See updated #8 for details. 


Here are the reward tiers that we'd love for you to consider.  We're hearing really great things about the custom Dino tier - think about making your own card for the game!

Check out the creativity of our backers and how Keenan has brought their (Dino) ideas to life!  


NOW FOR THE STRETCH GOALS:

We're just a couple of guys from Ohio (and a cool artist from Canada) trying to make the world a better place by bringing dinos to the table.  If you love playing games with friends or family (because current events are too depressing to talk about), then we'd really appreciate you considering the game.  

If you've ever wanted to see what you would look like as a dino, then we think you should consider the Custom Tier so you can get a dino of your choosing to affect the game.  Here are ours...they're awesome...like us. 

Look at how happy you could be (and we would be) if you backed our Kickstarter...

Risks and challenges

We've play tested with well over 100 people and feel really good about where the gameplay has ended up. We've got prototypes in hand, but need your help to get a small production run produced. The funds raised from Kickstarter will go to selecting our final vendor and working through all the logistics to get games in hand by mid-summer. We've never done this before, so pretty much everything is a challenge at this point, but we will work as diligently as possible to make sure we keep our word and get you dueling as soon as possible!!
