About this project
Pixel Lincoln: The Deckbuilding Game is the sidescrolling board game from Game Salute, Island Officials and designer Jason Tagmire. Travel through levels as the 16-bit president and his arsenal of weapons (Beardarang, Sausage Link Whip) defeating enemies like Booth, Bandatron and Totally T-Rex.
To celebrate the upcoming release of the game, we are creating a playing card deck featuring all of the characters from the game. You can pledge here for a copy of the high quality Bicycle deck, the jam-packed Deckbuilding Game, all expansions, custom cards, and lots of extras.
For more information about Pixel Lincoln: The Deckbuilding Game, see any of the following links:
Check out the two new pledge levels in the right column--the $55 level mentioned above and the $105 level that combines the playing card deck, the mini expansion, your custom character card, Pixel Lincoln: The Deckbuilding Game, and Pixel Lincoln Bonus Pack Expansion.
Jason Tagmire and Island Officials are authorizing a new Mini Expansion for Pixel Lincoln: The Deckbuilding Game. You can add Pixel Lincoln: Twenty-One to any current pledge level by increasing your pledge by $10 ($15 internationally). There's also a PL21-only pledge level available if anyone wants to pledge for JUST the mini expansion.
It's been a tough nine months since the Pixel Lincoln Deckbuilding Game was funded on Kickstarter and we felt like having a little fun. So, here's our fun -- The Pixel Lincoln Bicycle Playing Cards Deck. The 16-Bit 16th President and his nemesis John Wilkes Booth, duking it out across games of Klondike, Rummy, and Poker. Awesome!
This deck will be printed by U.S. Playing Card Company, known around the world for their Bicycle Brand playing cards. We'll print this deck once only, and that's it.
Each deck will bear the Bicycle trademark on the tuck box and will be sealed with a black seal bearing the dreaded Puking Turtle, another of the baddies out to get our 16-Bit President.
Every card (except the Aces) features a piece of 16-Bit card art from the Pixel Lincoln Deckbuilding game. The Clubs and Spades are packed full of Lincoln--jumping, snarling, and armed to the teeth with meat-weapons. The Hearts and Diamonds are the villains--Tommy Cat, Luchadores, Exploding Pigeons and more...all lead by that mad-man, Booth. Here's a sampling of the cards you'll be dealing at your next poker party...
Clowns are scary, Mimes are creepy, Magicians are sneaky, and Death is...well...death! Put all of these into one deck--that's right, FOUR jokers in one deck--and you're in for a real fright!
So, why in the world would we put FOUR jokers in this deck? That's just crazy! No, it's because we want to put forth a little challenge to you.
Jason Tagmire, the designer of the Pixel Lincoln Deckbuilding Game, has created a playing card game called Big Head Mode. We'll tell you more about it in the first update. Our challenge to you is to think up your own playing card game based on the cards and character in the Pixel Lincoln Playing Card deck. Post your game rules in the comments for Update #1 and if we like what we see, we'll add it to a free PDF for all backers and for download from the Pixel Lincoln page at GameSalute.com.
Risks and challenges
Producing Bicycle card decks is fairly new for us but the process is much like producing any other game, and we have that pretty well sussed out. We've got our ducks lined up with USPCC and the art is already done. We expect things to proceed fairly smoothly.
Of course, there are still a lot of ways our project–any project, really–can stumble between launch and delivery. We try very hard to anticipate those hiccups and plan ways around them. If anything does set our schedule behind, however, we'll keep you well informed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
