About

There is only one way to survive the long summer days, covered in sweat under the too hot sun: take a break and relax, and sip a good cocktail… the best one! Going to a bar is like  exploring a colorful and diverse world, where the bottles of alcohol brighten the menacing face of the barman, and the beautiful waitress livens up the bad company that sits next to you at the counter. Every bar is a world and every cocktail is its lively spirit. 

COCKTAILS is a new, simple and fast card game that aims to project the players to the carefree environment of a bar, where the only goal is to be the fastest barman, the one who knows how to mix the right ingredients at the right time to satisfy the dry throats of  scoundrel customers, just to beat the rival barmen!

Welcome to the alcoholic world of the cocktails!  
 If you think that you may need mysterious magical skills to create fresh cocktails, you are wrong! Just follow these simple rules: find a group of friends who wants to have fun, open a box of COCKTAILS to play with them, and enjoy a nice evening full of laughs and tasty drinks. 

Whether you are at the bar or sitting on the sofa at home, with COCKTAILS it will be easy for you to have fun, and everyone will become the most famous barman in the world! You won't need much to achieve your purpose: a deck of cards, a handful of coins, the ability to manage ingredients and, of course, luck. 

 So, what are you waiting for? Drew the ingredients, properly mix them, and complete your goal. But beware: the best cocktails require care and speed, the right glasses, and a healthy amount of competition. At the end of the game, only one of the players will be crowned the best barman.

COCKTAILS is a game that can guarantee healthy fun and ever-changing matches,  with  only a few elements, and 2 to 6 players, over the age of 8. The core of the game is the cards, divided into two categories: COCKTAILS (GOALand BARMAN (INGREDIENTS). 

The first group are the cocktails that the players will have to complete by collecting, storing and mixing the ingredients displayed on the cards. The Ingredients cards also have another use: each card has a special effect that the player can activate during their turn. 

There are different temporary and durable special effects which make the game more and more compelling and the game more competitive every time. Each time a player completes their goal cocktail, they earn the linked amount of coins.   Each coin will be gradually stored to eventually win the game. 

A few, simple and essential rules that make COCKTAILS a game for all ages, to create fantastic challenges both within the walls of a warm house and the cheerful bustle of a pub.

The leitmotif of our business is “quality and fun”: a nice and well-designed game requires a great graphic system. Looks also count! The high quality of our games is not only represented by the care in the graphic details, whether it is handmade or in digital, but also and especially by the quality of the materials. This is why we want our creations to always be the best products on the market. All of this is possible only because of a team of programmers and graphic designers who work daily to produce real projections of the finished product (creating 3D drawings, with high level rendering) and to develop high-definition graphic solutions

COCKTAILS follows this philosophy: starting from the components of the base box, up to the upgrades, from every single card of the deck up to the deluxe versions, every game will always be “tempting” and a pleasure for eyes and mind.  The majority of COCKTAILS’ graphics recalls the environment of a bar, including the little blackboards with menus and available drinks written on them. Each card of the game was designed just like a little blackboard, with all the information needed to start playing, both in drawings and in simple icons and symbols.

The object of the game is mixing the different ingredients of the Barman Cards and complete the Cocktail Card as soon as possible.  During the setting of the game, each player receives 5 Barman Cards (ingredients of the Cocktails), 6 Barcoins (official currency of the game) and 1 Cocktail Card (the cocktail to be completed). The game starts from the first Player going clockwise. Each turn is divided into three parts:  

  •  Setting  
  • Mixing  
  • Cleaning   

During the Setting the player draws 1 Barman Card from the Barman Deck. If the player has less than 5 Barman cards in hand, they draw as many cards as needed to reach 5. During the Mixing the player may perform the following actions: 

1. The player can play maximum 2 Barman Cards, and activate their effects. 

 2. The player can place the Barman Cards they need to reach their goal-cocktail on their counter (a part of the table in front of each player). 

3. If a player places all the Barman Cards they need to complete a cocktail on their counter, they will have completed the goal of the Cocktail Card. The player will earn the value of the cocktail in Barcoins. 

4. They'll then read the activated effect of the Cocktail Card they completed; the effect will last until the following Cocktail card is completed. 

Then they'll choose a new Cocktail Card from those facing up on the table, placing it on their counter. After a player completes their goal, or before passing their turn, all the cards on the table must be placed in the Discard Deck (Cleaning). If the player has more then 5 cards in hand, they need to discard the excess cards. 

The last round will start after the 8th (2-3 players) or 10th (4-6 players) Cocktail Card has been completed. The game lasts until the turn of player on the right of the First Player. To choose the winner, the players need to count the coins they earned during the game: the one who earned more Barcoins will be the winner.


Reaching this Achievement will allow you to have access to the new special stretch goals and more surprises that we'll introduce to the Kickstarter community or through our Facebook page “Cocktails – The Cardgame”.

(The contest will be effective only when the goal is reached).

Risks and challenges

Cocktails is our first Kickstarter project, but our staff already has experience producing games. Our first boardgame, M400, is a self-produced game, conceived and designed by our game and graphic designers. This first project was quite successful to Play Modena and Lucca Comics & Games, and it was the motivation to continue in this exciting work.
Our staff has good experience producing games with cards and others components. Thanks to the collaboration with Cartamundi, we can guarantee an excellent quality of materials and graphics.
We have already invested a considerable amount in developing this game and its artwork. We don't envision any specific challenge associated with the production of this project.
The main risk at this stage is the project might be delayed, during the remaining stages of the production pipeline, with respect to its scheduled release date. We prefer a reasonable delay to compromising on the level of quality we are looking for in our games in general, and in this product specifically. There are also risks of unexpected delays due to customs clearance, strikes, and exceptional weather that may influence the time necessary to deliver the games to our backers.
For this reason the delivery date, May 2019, is an estimate. While we will do everything in our power to meet this date, we are aware that slight delays are possible for reasons outside of our control. Also, exact delivery dates could vary depending on where you live. For example, your game may arrive earlier if you live in a region close to the our warehouse.

By pledging for this project you accept the following terms:
General Terms:
- This is not a pre-order and the final product may be subject to changes and improvements from what is presented here.
- After 30 days from the delivery date to your door, we will not accept complaints related to the game box contents of this campaign (missing components, damaged components, etc.).
- -After 6 months from the shipment date, we will not accept complaints related to the shipment of items of this campaign (damaged package, lost or missing contents, etc.).
- -After 12 months from the shipment date, we will not accept any complaints related to this campaign.
Refunds:
- An order can be canceled and fully refunded before the end of the campaign by clicking on the applicable button on Kickstarter.
Shipping:
- It’s ultimately your responsibility to respond to our post-campaign survey to claim your rewards and to give us information about your shipping address and add-on choices. If you ignore our last call email for more than 4 weeks we will consider your pledge a donation and we won’t be able to ship you a reward.

- If the game fails to arrive because of your mistake (wrong address, recipient absent, failure to pick up at courier/postal warehouse, etc.), any additional shipping/warehousing cost for us to re-send/re-deliver your game will be your responsibility. This also includes the costs associated with returning the game. If after investigation it becomes clear that the error was on our part, we will resend your package at our expense.
- If the package is lost, destroyed or damaged, the carrier will be held solely responsible. Any customer claim to the carrier needs to be made at the time of delivery, not later. If the package seems damaged, please ask the postal carrier to make you a receipt "accepted with reserve".
- Please note that we will not reship any game without first investigating what happened to the first shipment.
- If your game arrives with missing or damaged components, provide us with proof and we will substitute them once we have verified the damage.

If you are not comfortable with these terms, please do not participate in this Kickstarter Campaign.
