Kartoffelkrieg means potato war! It started as an internet joke, and now it’s the world’s first (and best) potato-based tabletop wargame! All you need to play are some REAL potatoes, a few friends (they don’t have to be real) and the contents of this attractive game! 

Do you have what it takes to go potato to toe with your enemies and emerge victoriously? 

Will you peel or will you mash?

"Kartoffelkrieg is a game that doesn’t take itself too seriously (in case you hadn’t guessed!) It is also a lot of fun. However, the game play is actually good. It plays like a lot of tabletop miniature games and would make a great introduction to anything along those lines, but the potatoes add fun for those who see tabletop gaming as purely measuring and rolling dice. 

The rules are simple and everything is clearly marked on the cards. The initial drafting adds a board game element and variety to each game. And anyway, who wouldn’t want to build their own mechanized potato?!? (For those that don’t, potatoes can be substituted for any other suitable fruit or vegetable.)

Massif Games is the publishing company I [Corey] started when I came up with the initial idea for my first board game, Mountaineers. Massif is a legally registered Benefit Corporation in the State of Oregon. In fact, we are currently the only board game publishing company in the USA with this designation.

Being a Benefit-Corporation means that we are committing to being an environmentally and socially responsible business. This is something that we are passionate and excited about.

Our business is dedicated to giving away time and money for wilderness preservation and fighting human trafficking. In our corporate articles, we have specific goals including:

  •   1. Massif Freedom 
  •   2. Massif Good 
  •   3. Massif Visibility 
  •   4. Massif Benefits

Risks and challenges

WITHOUT YOUR PLEDGE, I can't publish KARTOFFELKRIEG! My company doesn't have the working capital to manufacture a game with this many miniature components, without your help. Please back this project, and help us make a ridiculous game, about mechanized potato warfare!
