Princess Bride: I Hate to Kill You is a quick, but crafty, dice and card game that recreates (and re-imagines) the sword duels from The Princess Bride. Play as the Man In Black, Inigo Montoya, Count Rugen or Prince Humperdinck. 

Each player starts with 6 dice and 10 cards. On a turn, both players roll their dice and then play a card which may modify the outcome. The player with the highest total swords scores a hit and must remove a die with a sword on it from their active pool. Some cards will modify their dice, some with modify their opponent's dice and others will return dice to their active pool. As the tension builds, and players lose more dice and more cards, bluffing (and of course, switching hands) may win you the round. The first player to score 5 hits wins the game.

Risks and challenges

Game Salute has done over 165 successful Kickstarter campaigns, including our own published titles and those we've helped independent publishers run and fulfill. The games are in pre-press with the printer and this campaign will help us determine how many to make as well as ensure you're the first one to get this awesome game!

While shipping and processing delays are always a possibility, we have set a conservative delivery date that allows time to handle difficulties when they arise. Of course, should games arrive before the estimated delivery date, we will send them out as soon as we receive them.

We're so certain that you'll enjoy this Princess Bride title that we're backing it up with our Game Salute Guarantee. And of course, we have the licence and rights to produce this game - They're 100% official Princess Bride products!

Now, sometimes life happens and a few people will want to cancel their pledge after the campaign has ended, and that’s fine, too. We can handle this for you – all we need is for you to email with your username, real name, and the Amazon Payments Transaction ID that’s in the email you’ll receive after your money is collected when the campaign closes. Please note: When we receive your funds, we only receive approximately 85% of what you paid as a result of various fees and charges, so the refund amount will reflect your pledge amount minus 15% to cover those charges. Remember that you’re also able to cancel your pledge at any time during the campaign, so if you're not sure that you really want this or can't afford it at present, then this campaign may not be for you. It would be best to get a copy later through your favorite game store!

Thanks for supporting us. You're awesome!
