About

Brief Intro:

We have created the game, tested it, covered it with beautiful artwork, and ironed out all mechanics for it. We are ready to start manufacturing it and that is where we need your help. We need to fill up a minimum bulk order to bring the game out with a sensible price.

Madhouse Pandemonium is a gloomy but lighthearted and entertaining game with a madness theme for two to four players. Gameplay time takes anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes per match and every card in the deck represents a real life mental disorder including some of the most weird and hilarious in history.

 The players are sane people that want to become madmen, competing to achieve the highest score on their way to madness. The goal for each madman is to get the highest score possible: use your mental disorders (cards) wisely and maximize your score. Players have the opportunity to acquire special mental disorders that they can use on others to give them that unfair advantage that everybody wants. Players acquire the special mental disorders, torment others, and get one step closer to winning the game by throwing others off-course and by getting a tidy bit more sane, since the joy of driving someone else insane always makes you more sane, right? Players try to roll matching pips on their dice with the card they are trying to harvest, only problem is that the dice you have already placed down next to a card stay there until you either claim that card or until somebody else claims it before you, you can always just take them back on the next round but then you have to start all over again on a different card. The game ends when only one player is left. The scores are compared, and the madman with the highest score, wins!

We are a small company and we are new in the world of tabletop gaming. However we are committed on bringing out a high quality product that will last you for a long time. But more importantly we have designed this game to leave no trace once it finally reaches the end of it's life. Here is a list of our design choices.

  • This product will be made in the USA.
  • The paper used for the cards is recycled and the cards are printed with non toxic ink, coated in a bio degradable thermo-plastic adhesive to increase their endurance. The cards are designed to last upwards of 20 years if not abused but they break down in less than a year when exposed to the elements.
  • The plastic score pointers are made in house using 3D printing technology and a non toxic plastic known as PLA. Our plastic score pointers are also designed to break down within 90 to 100 days when exposed to the environment.
  • Our dice are outsourced to a US based manufacturer made from colorful acrylic that will last you a life time.  
  • The game is packaged in a velvet bag for easy transportation and long term durability.

 Here is some of the artwork that goes onto our cards.

 

 

 

 

 Madhouse Pandemonium as it stands now represents the combined efforts of four hobbyists over an 7 month development period. Although we are happy with the result,  we envision in the long run to release an expansion of the game which can extend the game to 2-8 players. 

All stretch goals will be provided for free to those who pledge $35 or more however a digital version will be provided to those that pledge below $35.  

 We are willing to consider making the rest of the game in the form of an expansion to the game you will receive if we surpass our goal. For every new tier we reach in our budget you will receive additional content for no additional cost as it is shown below.

Our first stretch goal at $9,000 will help us design and manufacture 10 extra cards as well as one extra character that will be added to your version of the game.

 For our second stretch goal at $14,000 we will design and add an additional 10 cards to the game as well as another character.

Reaching our third stretch goal at $20,000 we are able to release a game expansion which will include 30 cards, 2 characters, and 2 extra sets of dice. This will extend the capacity of the game to 2-6 players.

For our third stretch goal at $25,000 we will design and add an additional 10 cards to the game as well as another character.

For our fourth stretch goal at $30,000 we will design and add an additional 10 cards to the game as well as another character.

Ultimately our fourth and final stretch goal at $40,000 allows us to release a game expansion which will include 60 cards, 4 characters, and 4 extra sets of dice; technically an entire game! This will extend the capacity of the game to 2-8 players.

Risks and challenges

We are asking for your support so that we can start manufacturing the game and henceforth ship it to people who are interested just like you, and to put it out on the market. The funds we collect here will be combined with our existing capital to manufacture the game in bulk and also be used to pay our artists so that we can make new characters for your custom card pledges only. The game is designed, artistically rendered, and tested. We are ready to start manufacturing it, but we need to make bulk orders for most of the parts, the funds we get here will be used to ensure that we can get this game to you within the next couple of months.
