Greetings, actors and actresses! 

We hope you're still having fun with Deadwood Studios, USA! We're writing to tell you about our latest project, which also features art by Phil Foglio! Girl Genius: The Works is on Kickstarter now!

Girl Genius: The Works!
Girl Genius: The Works!

In Girl Genius: The Works, each card is a cog in a giant machine made up of a twelve-card tableau. On their turn, players flip, spin, and "pop" cards, which interact in different ways. Depending on the situation, cards can pop individually or in chains, giving you extra points, more cards, or something else entirely! The first player to 70 points wins.

Cards from Girl Genius: The Works. Art not final.

Each card features unique, never-before-seen illustrations by Studio Foglio, the creative machine behind the steampunk webcomic Girl Genius. With an 18-year history, a fervent fan base, and many, many awards, Girl Genius is one of the most successful and long-running webcomics of all time.

Girl Genius: The Works divides the cards into four different decks, corresponding to story arcs within the comic. Players may combine decks, but need only one to play the game. The campaign offers levels from $12 for a single deck, up to $60 for all four decks, a playmat, and the traditional Cheapass "Funvelope"—an envelope of shiny freebies. Add-ons include the upcoming release The Island of Doctor Lucky and an "in-world" version of The Works, currently called "Moxana's Game."

The hunter becomes the hunter in The Island of Doctor Lucky!

Thanks again for supporting Cheapass Games!
