About

Rule Breakers is a shedding style card game that involves new rules to follow each round. This game is fun yet competitive.

First off, I want to thank you for taking the time to view my project. I've had the pleasure of backing 12 other kickstarter projects and I'm now ready to launch my own. I wanted to create a fun card game that just about everyone could play. I love to play games with my family and now I want to share what I love with you kickstarter.

The game will be professionally printed and will include a playing deck, a green rule deck and an orange rule deck. It's recommended to be played with 4-8 people but you can play with more or less. Recommended ages are 13+.

To get an idea of the game we've laid out the house rules, the different decks and game play here:

House Rules:

1. Players cannot ask questions during the game.

2. Players must say "one card left" when they have one card left in their hand.

3. Players must say "have a nice day" when they play a 7.

4. Players cannot say the name of the game.

5. Players may ask questions by saying "point of order." When a player calls point of order, all players must set their hands down until the player that called point of order picks his or her hand up. During point of order, all players can ask questions freely without being penalized. 

Green Rule Deck:

The green rule deck consists of 100 cards with new rules to be followed though out the game.

Orange Rule Deck:

The orange rule deck consists of cards that specify when the new rules are to be followed.

Rule Card Set:

A rule card set consists of one green card and one orange card.

Penalizations:

Players are penalized by drawing an extra card when they break a house rule or a rule card set. Players must also draw an extra card if they play out of turn.

Playing Deck:

The playing deck consists of 112 cards. The deck contains two sets of four different shapes: Star, Circle, Square and Triangle. Each shape has the numbers 1-13 and a Rule Breaker Card. 

Rule Breaker Card:

A rule breaker card is used to steal a facedown rule card set.

How to Play:

1. Rule Breakers consists of seven rounds.

2. During the first round, only the house rules are in effect.

3. Each round begins by dealing each player seven cards. 

4. Once the first card is dealt, all rules go into effect.

5. The remaining cards are placed in the middle as the drawing deck and the top card is flipped over to be the first card in the discard pile.

6. Players then take turns playing cards from their hands that either have the same shape or face value as the topmost card in the discard pile.

7. Players may only play out of turn if the card they play is the exact copy of the topmost card in the discard pile. If this happens, play continues with the person that follows the player who played the exact copy.

8. If players cannot play, they must draw a card and play it immediately if able to do so. If unable to do so, they are passed and the game continues.

9. A round ends when one player has discarded all of his or her cards. 

10. That player then draws a card from both the green and orange rule decks.

11. That player doesn't show anyone else what the new rule is and is responsible for enforcing it during the next round and must follow the rule him/herself.

12. A rule card set only remains facedown for one round and is flipped face up the very next round for everyone to see. 

13. While a rule card set is facedown, players can steal it by playing a rule breaker card, however they are not allowed to look at it until the next round.

14. Once it is flipped face up, the player that has it in his or her possession will keep it for the rest of the game. 

15. As the rounds continue, players must follow the house rules and all rule card sets.

16. At the end of seven rounds, the player with the most rule card sets wins the game.
