About this project

Guaranteed By Game Salute is our promise that The Princess Bride: Prepare to Die will be produced with quality components and that you will enjoy the time you spend with the game. If you're not satisfied with The Princess Bride: Prepare to Die, just return it to our warehouse in New Hampshire USA within 30 days of receiving it, and we'll refund your pledge. That's our money-back guarantee...no questions asked..

The Princess Bride is a terrific book (by William Goldman) and film (by Rob Reiner).  In it, Inigo Montoya has trained his whole life to become a great swordsman so he can look at the six-fingered man and say, "Hello.  My name is Inigo Montoya.  You killed my father.  Prepare to die."

The Princess Bride: Prepare to Die is a party game based around this iconic line.  Instead of Inigo Montoya delivering the line, however, you have various famous people such as Princess Zelda, Abraham Lincoln and Nikola Tesla.  They're also avenging things other than the murder of their father, with lines like, "You drank my milkshake" or "You sheared my alpaca."

Your objective is to make the best combinations of people out for vengeance and reasons to feel vengeful.

Prepare to Die is a fun, silly game which can be played in just a few minutes, but will probably last longer because everybody will want to play another round.

© Princess Bride Ltd. All Rights Reserved.  The Princess Bride: Prepare to Die is an officially licensed Princess Bride product.  We got Mandy Patinkin's permission and everything!

We have been super impressed by the names and hilarious verb/noun combinations people have shown over on the Princess Bride Facebook Page, and we've decided to start adding some of the cards to the mix!  We will be releasing a Bonus Pack, featuring cards from the Facebook page and from the comments section of this very Kickstarter!  If we hit $6000 or more, the bonus pack will be included with each copy of the game we send to backers.  Your card could be in the bonus pack, immortalized forever!

The Princess Bride: Prepare to Die comes with hundreds of cards, split between the Hello My Name Is deck and the Prepare to Die deck.  There is also a rule sheet, which explains how to play in three different game modes.

We know that we love The Princess Bride and this game.  We know that a lot of you will love it too.  What we don't know is how many of you want it, which is an incredibly important thing to know.  We need your help to get The Princess Bride: Prepare to Die off to a rip-roaring start.  With your support we can make it bigger, better, and even more ridiculous.

Risks and challenges

The Princess Bride: Prepare to Die is "Print Ready" so we plan to send the final files to the printer within a week or two of the project's close. That means we hope to have it available for release in September. Every game project is subject to potential production delays, but this goal is achievable.

The final challenge is getting the game and rewards out to the backers. Game Salute is well versed in reward fulfillment and we are prepared to meet this challenge for Prepare to Die!
