Infected: Card Game
A great party game, lie, testify and avoid being killed off!. More than a basic card game, survive the "infection!"
You're here because you're curious? What is Infected?... First let me explain what this game is about. (WIKI)
Mafia is a party game created in the USSR by Dimitry Davidoff in 1986, modelling a conflict between an informed minority (the Mafia) and an uninformed majority (the innocents). At the start of the game each player is secretly assigned a role affiliated with one of these teams. The game has two alternating phases: "night," during which the mafia may covertly "murder" an innocent, and "day," in which surviving players debate the identities of the mafiosi and vote to eliminate a suspect. Play continues until all of the mafia has been eliminated, or until the mafia outnumbers the innocents.
Now that you have a better idea on what I'm blabbing about, there are other versions out there such as "Werewolf", but this version is my version of the game.
Lets start with how I got to this point. We had used a normal deck of cards every time we play, it wasn't ideal most of the time with other groups wanting to play poker.. or snap, great game by the way when drunk :)
Me and my partner decided to go a step further and create something more exciting based on the game we love playing.
We have been using this deck at parties which attracts more attention due to the whole "Zombie" thing. With these being self-designed they are original stuff and most of the peeps that play with us always ask me where did I get these cards from...
I have been asked to get these created professionally, but that requires equipment and materials as I'd like to get things done myself.
So it hit me that I should try. So that is why I am here. I'm looking to get some help!. Ive got it all calculated that I need £2,000 to get the equipment needed and A LOT of good material to make these cards stand out professionally.
I love designing these cards and would love to share my passion with you guys at Kickstarter. WOW those at parties and be "That" guy/girl at the party that made it awesome!.
I have tons of designs that I'd love to add in and grow the deck bigger for bigger games, but that requires funds, so that is why I'll be throwing up stretch goals once I hit my main goal.
Each card will have some kind of an ability to change the game. (Some others I'm designing: The Marine, The Doctor, The Thief, The Couple, The Leader, The Loner, The Combat Medic, The Child...etc I have tons written down and ready to design.. oh and I have a Moderator card in the mix for big games) Obviously it is up to you to use them, I haven't written the ability on the cards for the reason that you may want to use them for other meanings.
ALL DECKS WILL GET THE RULES AND THE ABILITY CHART FOR GUIDANCE. IT IS UP TO YOU TO USE IT.
(Will go into great detail on all cards and the game.)
I have also ADDED in bigger versions to the pledges, because with this, you can have more detailed characters and much better experience, plus they are harder to lose when drunk :P
What I'd love to do more, is add you guys to a custom card, it'll be a challenge but they will look cool!
Pick a Moderator that will run the game, handle the cards and deal with the DAY and NIGHT turns. You deal the cards out faced down to your friends (Usually better played with more than 5 players). Everyone will sneak peek of what card they have, but not show anyone. The game will alternate from Night to Day to Night to Day, and so on. Everyone closes their eyes on Night Time. (The only cards kept with the mod are left overs and all the Infected Common cards)
Night turn: The Mod will ask the Infected to open there eyes, If you are the Ring Leader, you will select one to Infect. Mod will swap card with that person who has been infected.
Day turn: Mod will explain that someone has been infected and now there 1 Infected and 1 is the Ring Leader. The party must discuss and accuse to a point where you all agree one will get killed.
The point of the game is to kill the infected. Now for the twist. The Ring Leader is the only one that can infect (recruit). Every 2 turns at night the Ring Leader will infect, and inbetween those turns on every other night you decide with your minions who to kill. Now if the Ring Leader dies, then on every night the infected can only kill. The Ring Leader is the only one that can infect.
Dont worry I will include FULL Instructions, details and the rules of the Infected with also the abilities of all the characters to put some twist to it. I'll also add in the basic game rules and rules for those drunk nights :)
I would LOVE to get these decks to you before Christmas, but it may be Jan 2014. I have put Jan for the time being, but I aim for December 2013!
============== FUNDING BONUS ADD-ON ===========
I will be adding in 2x Doctor Cards in the Master Deck and Custom Decks as a bonus. The Custom Premium Deck will get 2 different doctors.
Only 1x in the Party Deck.
================= Stretch Goals ==================
I will be adding cards to the deck, so what you see is what you'll get. I wont be altering the deck in anyway, only by adding stretch goal cards.
I do plan on adding some stretch goals but my first goal is the funding goal. Once I'm half way there, Ill add the 2 cards up for the stretch goal.
All decks/pledges will include the PDF Files too.
Risks and challenges
I'm counting on no bumps in the road. The only problem I could be hit with is printing and shipping delays until Jan 2014. I will try my best to get them out before Christmas!.
This game isn't for everyone and the cards and designs may not be liked. We all have our own tastes. I have my fingers crossed that you all will be pleased.
I'm a problem solver, so if any problems drop my way, you bet that I'll be giving it my all to over-come it and defeat the badness of problems!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
