About

HBH Games is Happiness Brought Home.

We are looking to raise capital in order to place a large scale print run for the tabletop card game Plundering Pirates.

       Over the past 15 years or so, I've noticed my own family engaging more with electronic devices than with each other. The real tragedy, was that they didn't even realize that they were doing it. With technology being what it is today, we have the ability to be connected to just about everything and yet nothing at all. It seems to me that personal interactions are dwindling and that we need to put away the distractions that push us apart and engage in the activities that bring us together. Let's laugh together, make happy memories and spend more QUALITY time with one another. 

       HBH Games LLC was created to bring NEW content, so enjoyable, that you'll actually want to put away the distraction.  

  • First Game Release - Plundering Pirates (2018) 
  • 16 Additional titles under various stages of development - Everything from Board Games to Card Games to Tile Placement Games and even, Stacking and Balancing Games.  (4 Titles have been prototyped and are being play tested)
  • 2 Expansions for Plundering Pirates (Currently in play testing)

                                           How to Play

  • Each Player is given the B.O.O.T.Y cards, which they place in front of them on the table.
  • Next each player is dealt 10 playing cards, which will be a mixture of the cards seen below.

  • On your turn, you start by drawing a card, or multiple cards if you have less than 7.
  • Then, you play (up to 2) Act of Piracy cards.

        Act of Piracy cards are both your offense and your defense. They give you the ability to protect yourself in a Fight or win you valuable Raids that reward you with piles of coins. Plunder, Sly Deal and Mutiny cards are important as well. They can turn the tide by allowing you to draw additional cards into your hand from any other player or the deck. They can even force great cards out of your opponents hands at critical moments in the game. They can slow down your opponent and at the same time speed you up to victory. But Be careful; Everybody else has the same cards and are trying to do the same thing to you!

  • Next, you trade your accumulated Treasure cards for coins.

       Treasure cards are tricky. Because the more of the same treasure card you have to trade, the more valuable the trade is worth. The problem is that with everybody playing Act of Piracy cards on their turn, it makes it very difficult to hang on to your treasures! You have the choice of trading away quickly before your stuff is stolen or to play it cool, try to be sly, and see if you can sneak by collecting up to a big payday.

  • Finally you may use your coins to pay for the letters B. O. O. T. Y.  or you may conceal your loot and wait until another turn to try to sweep in from behind. The strategy is up to you.

                    all of the B. O. O. T. Y.  letters wins!

        Like many card games there is a component of luck regarding the cards you draw. However, that is a small part of Plundering Pirates. Your greatest challenges will be trying to predict what others have in their hands and timing when to make big moves. Pay close attention so you can determine who your biggest threats are and when to stop them?

        You might like to bring attention to another player's success and then encourage the other pirates to go after them. It can be a great way to get others to do your bidding so that you can save your cards. Because the more cards you hold, the more choices and options you have to claim the B.O.O.T.Y. first. 

 Its simple to learn, a blast to play but incredibly difficult to master.

                     Whats Next for Plundering Pirates

       We have already secured the Printer and Manufacturer for Plundering Pirates, so once we achieve our Kickstarter goal, we will be able to approve printing and begin production.  Kickstarter pledges will be fulfilled and then additional copies we be available online, and through specified retailers.  Assets received through the growth and development of HBH Games will be redirected back into the company, as there are still many more games to come.

                                       The Creators

       HBH Games was founded by Joseph Carter and Tony Baron in order to create great game content that friends and family can enjoy together, while making lasting memories.

       We've created some really great memories around our kitchen tables and we're excited to help you do the same.

  • $30,000 - Metal Doubloon Coins upgraded for all pledges above $25 plus all previous stretch goals.
  • $50,000 - For all pledges above $25, you will receive one (1) copy of the first expansion for Plundering Pirates, plus all previous stretch goals. 

Risks and challenges

Our greatest challenge is integration. The gaming community is a long time established group. And, while they may be willing to let us in, we still have to earn our stripes. We also need to continue to develop our understanding of how to get our name "out there" as well as building our brand.

Our greatest risk is failing to reach our full potential as a game company. HBH Games currently has 17 titles under development, but without a successful launch of Plundering Pirates, HBH Games won't be able to bring these other titles to people's tables.

To address these challenges and risks we have focused on building a strong social media network as well as creating advertising and promotional campaigns. We're creating and developing relationships within the gaming community as well as scheduling convention appearances.

We are a small company with great potential. We do all of our own artwork and graphic design which helps keeps cost down. Additionally, we own both the Copy-write and Trademark for Plundering Pirates which will allow us to go where the business takes us.
