About

RIZE Z is a new card game that allows you to create unique decks using Zombies, The Living, or both.  Choose enhancement cards like Boomstick to power up your living creatures or materials like Heavy Branch and Braided Rope which are more powerful when combined.  The style of game-play is unique, but still familiar and should not take long to master. You will find the learning curve is minimal, but the game-play and strategy building engaging. RIZE Z features chilling card artwork that gives this game a twisted appeal.

ZOMBIES

Tough to kill and unnaturally strong, Zombies make formidable opponents. Zombies have a horde mentality and are usually stronger when played alongside other Zombie type creatures. Low intelligence does make Zombies less apt to carrying weapons, however, with the right combination of cards even Zombies can begin to learn.

THE LIVING

Supremely outnumbered and vulnerable to disease the Living have been forced to become resourceful. Taking shelter in secure environments, creating makeshift weapons, and setting booby traps have become second nature. The Living are still in control of the best weapon of all: intelligence. Finding weak-spots and developing strategy is their best bet at survival.

 ENHANCEMENTS

While some creatures may be naturally strong, others may need a little boost.  Grabbing a chainsaw may give them just the boost they need.  Adding basic materials to your deck may not seem like a good idea, however combining them may give you a big advantage.  You may also find that lathering your character with zombie guts may make them less appetizing.  With the right card, Zombies may even figure out that infecting the Living is better than eating them.

 CRAFTING

Crafted items usually requires combining one or more materials.  Crafted items are a part of your extra deck.  A crafted item can be pulled anytime from your extra deck when you have the necessary materials in your hand or on the field.  For instance, if you have Heavy Branch in your hand and Braided Rope on the field you can discard both materials and then play Crude Bow from the extra deck.

 TRAPS

When all else fails it pays to be prepared.  Digging a pitfall or setting a claymore is a good way to make sure Zombies keep their distance.  Of course, not seeing that zombie in the shadows as you walk by, or leaving a backdoor unlocked, may spell disaster for the Living.

WEBSITE & FORUM

The website will become an important source of information about the game, its rules, and specific cards.  Aside from its informational role you will also be able to purchase additional booster packs, sets, and any other merchandise available.

Another important feature of the website will be an interactive forum.  This forum will allow players to exchange game-play tips and deck building support.  Additionally, there will be an area of the forum dedicated to trading.  Here you will be able to improve your deck by trading away cards that are unhelpful to your particular deck build.  

Lastly, what I feel is one of the most important aspects of the forum is a collaborative thread for new card ideas.  Some of you may have fantastic ideas for new cards, and I want to hear about them.  Together we can not only bring his game to life but continue to expand and improve it.

FREE REWARD

I want RIZE Z to succeed, and I also want to thank everybody who supported it.  This is why I am going to give away an exclusive special edition game card that will only ever be available to supporters and pledgers during this kickstarter.

1) Post this Kickstarter on Facebook, Twitter, or any social media.

2) Send me an email at RizeZGame@gmail.com with a screenshot or link to where you shared.

FUNDING

1) I have sifted through many manufactures and have found the perfect one for creating authentic high-quality trading cards.  First and foremost the funds I receive will be going to the actual production and packaging of these cards.

2) Your funds allow me to pay the artists I need to create professional and original card artwork.

3)  While minimal, I will also need a small amount of these funds to create the interactive website that I described earlier.

UPDATES

As new backers are added I will update this kickstarter and post more cards as the artist completes them.

I will also continue to update you on the status of the entire project as it nears completion and items are going to be ready to ship.

As the website and forum come online I will update you.

In short, I will update you as often as possible about what is currently happening with the project.

Risks and challenges

Some of the biggest challenges have already been overcome. Finding the right manufacturer is probably the biggest challenge and I have already found the manufacturer to use for creating these cards.

The biggest challenge that I foresee is that once I secure funding the artist will have to be working quickly to finish all the card artwork in a short period of time. However, I am more than able to compensate for any artwork production time shortcomings. I currently have several backup artists in waiting who are almost as great as my main artist.

I have a team of people who are ready and willing to help with order fulfillment, so while I may have a head of orders to fulfill I should be more than capable of handling it. In the worst case I have workers on standby that I can pay to make sure the orders are fulfilled as quick as possible.

I have taken as many precautions as possible and have secured redundant everything, including manufacturers.

If you have concerns not voiced here, please just send me a message and I will be glad to respond!
