The Orcfather is an easy cooperative cardgame for 4 to 10 players.

Players create two families to battle between them. Each familly will secretly choose a 'godfather' at the beginning of the game and the other team will try to eliminate him.

Your goal will be to protect your 'godfather' and defeat the leader of the opposite team.

What will the game include?

  • 128 cards (100x70mm) (4"x2.8" inch)
  • 112 tokens
  • Rulebook 12 pages full color
  • Box size 160x160x50mm

Here you are a small graphic to see what is included on each box. Please note this is not definitive; depending on the funds we get we will add new cards and improve the quality of the components. Have a look at the 'stretch goals'.

 This one is the basic version of the game. You can have your print&play for just £1.

All unblocked stretch goals will be added to the physical final version of 'The Orcfather' and to the print&play.

Just in case you don't feel like watching the video we sum it up to you in just a few lines ;)

  • Players form two teams and draw a random character card. Each character has special skills (check here). Players should take these abilities into account when they are choosing their 'godfather'.
  • Each round starts with a planification phase where players will secretly prepare all the actions they will take – attack, defend or business-
  • You can't talk about this with your team! Each player should secretly choose the actions.
Action cards
Action cards
  • Players will use their intuition to take the most effective action, trying to guess what actions their enemies and allies will take.
Target cards
Target cards
  • Once players have decided the actions to take, the turn will be played on a fixed order.
  • First of all the defense actions: Players will place a defense token on the players they have decided to defend or on himself if it's the case.
  • Secondly the attack actions: Players will place an attack token on their targets.Each attack token will annul one defense token. If the target players is running out of defense tokens each attack token will annul one life token.As you can imagine, when a player is running out of life tokens he will be eliminated from the game and he will reveal if he is 'the godfather', if he is not the game will keep on.
  • Lastly players that have choosen business will take a business card. These cards improve the attacks, heal and can save allies from tricky situations. Each card explains when can you use them. Check the business deck here.

GAME RULES (no definitive)

As you can see the art is one of the key points of a game for us.

Our aim has been to create a funny and atractive cardgame but we wanted to give it also an interesting background. You can read more about the characters features here:

LINK TO CHARACTERS

We are confident that these tales and short stories will enrich the game; this background has a lot to offer! We are working on a website where we will publish all news. 

  • The whole thing is almost finished.
  • We just need to define some design details. We will ask you about them so you can participate on the making process decisions.
  • We need your support to make this game happens. We are a bunch of friends fans of board games. Some time ago we decided to found our own company to create our original games.
  • This is the second project we launch on a crowfunding basis. The first one was our game CASTLE RISING which is ready to release thanks to you.
  • As you can see we are absolutely independent and we'd like to continue in this way with your help.
  • You will be the first one to have the game if you support our campaign; we won't sell it until all of you had received your own game.
  • Moreover you will also have the opportunity to get a special edition including two exclusive characters as well as some business cards only available on kickstarter.
  • We have a real transparency policy so be sure we will inform you about every details around the game.
  • We are really proud of this game, both its appearance and its playing and we want to share this passion with you. 

All the unblocked stretch goals will be included in all the games (except £1 Print&Play)

Risks and challenges

Overseas Manufacturing: The board game may possibly be subject to production delays, shipping delays, and custom delays, but we will do all that is possible to minimize these potential risks.

We're a small company and very aware of our limitations. The reason for this Kickstarter is to produce what we believe will be one of our most popular sets in a more controlled environment where we can better anticipate demand and be able to plan for it with lots of cushion time built in.

Our first game Castle Rising were successful funded on kickstarter and is on way of delivering.
