Beard Wars - The Card Game
Like card games? So do I. I love sitting down w/ my family or friends and busting out a deck of cards. That's why I created Beard Wars!
Have a beard? Know someone with a beard? Ever SEEN a beard? Then Beard Wars may be for you!
My name is Michael Murdock, and I am the illustrator/creator of this card game. Being an illustrator, I am always trying to find new ways in order to incorporate my skills. A few months ago, while playing card games with my family, I though to myself "Hey... I could do this." - So I figured I would give it a shot.
Beard Wars is the result.
Link to rules of the game
Video of game play down at the bottom.
The base Beard Wars game has two decks of cards. Each deck is the same, except for the backs (to differentiate the two).
Your goal is to collect as many "Beard Trophies" as possible before your deck runs out. To help you out, there are some modifier cards and modifier beards that will help you along the way.
Each deck contains 40 beard cards and 14 modifier cards. There are TWO DECKS in each box. This allows 2 players to play. However, there is also a 4 player option using 4 decks. Theoretically, you could have any amount of even players.. I have just never tried it.
Stretch goals? Why not be optimistic.
While creating these cards, I had several ideas that involved historical figures. I decided to put those ideas into a stretch goal expansion pack.
For the next stretch goal, I thought it would be fun to feature a bunch of bearded ladies.
I am very excited about this project, and if it goes really well, I will add more stretch goals!
Here is a video of my son and his friend playing. My son is explaining the rules as he goes.
Risks and challenges
I have already got a book successfully funded with Kickstarter last year. I learned a lot then, and this is a very similar process in terms of dealing with the printing and shipping, so I don't feel like there would be too many challenges that will prevent this from getting produced.
The game is already created, so now it is a matter of getting it produced!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
