About

Let's create some mayhem
Let's create some mayhem

A fast-paced, family, tabletop battling card game for 2 to 4 players. This hugely fun and creative game can be played in six different ways, providing exciting variation and wide age range appeal.   With some devilishly fun simpler games for younger ones and some beastly awesome strategic games for older players. 

You will create monstrous and ridiculous characters to make every game different.  Mix & Mayhem Series 1 contains 72 high-quality professionally printed cards (60 Character cards and 12 Action cards) with fun and attractive artwork and a full rulebook.  

We are also offering you the chance to get a copy of Mix & Mayhem Series 1 and Series 2, which is a KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!  With an additional 72 cards, allowing you to create 64,000 unique and absurd characters each with their own unique name and powers.

So what crazy character can you create to lead you to victory?!

  •  6 great games in 1 – providing exciting variation & wide age range appeal
  •  2 to 4 players – a collection of exciting games for up to 4 players
  •  Ages 4 and up – equally fun for the whole family
  •  15-20 mins – each mini game is quick and fast-paced 

Children can have hours of fun simply mixing and matching the cards to make their own weird and favourite characters. The cards can also be used to play traditional games of “mix & match”, however, each character card has a numerical value which allows additional unique battle games of “Mix & Mayhem” to be played. 

The numerical values show how clever, strong and agile the character would be in battle. Head cards have a “Brains” value, Torso cards have a “Strength” value, and Legs cards have a “Speed” value.  As well as the character cards there are also 12 special action cards that can be used in some of the games to create more fun and rambunctious mayhem.

Mix & Mayhem is great for children to play together or for parents to play with their children.  Also some of the mini games are great for the parents to play when the children have gone to bed, so you can test your skills and strategy against each other!  This is a super fun light game that will bring a lot of fun and enjoyment to your family.  Given its lightweight nature, it is also ideal for taking with you wherever you go.

  • Perfect mix of luck and strategy makes it the ideal family game.
  • The fast-paced game and frequent changes in momentum keeps players engaged and entertained.
  •  Stimulating creativity and capturing their imaginations with hilarious and crazy character and name combinations.
  •  Easy to learn and play making it accessible to gamers and non-gamers of all ages and skill levels.
  • Great for children’s development testing their numeracy skills, memory and decision making skills.
  • Children can also play individually with hours of fun creating a potential of 8,000 unique character combinations. 

 There are 6 unique Mix & Mayhem mini games to play:

 Players will take it in turns to draw cards and race to complete an original Mix & Mayhem character.  Young children will enjoy this fun and tense game as they try to uncover the required body parts to match a character and also make up some weird and wonderful other characters along the way.


 This is a game of knowing your strengths and weaknesses and knowing how to use them to defeat your opponent.  Players will try to wipe out their opponents character one body part at a time and stop them from building a complete character.  The deck will be split between players and divided into head, torso and legs piles.  Each player will build a complete character and take it turns to select a category of Brains, Strength or Speed to challenge their opponent and wipe them out!  Special action cards can be played at any time to add extra fun and tactical thought to the game.


This all-out brawl trick-taking game offers a unique twist.  Players will take it in turns to draw cards and create their character to battle with.  Once each player has a complete character, the gauntlet can be thrown down to challenge for a battle.  The total score of each character is calculated and the player with the highest score wins the battle.  Whoever wins the most battles once all the cards are drawn is the ultimate Mix & Mayhem warrior.  Special action cards can also be played at any time to add extra mayhem to the game.


 This warfare of trick-taking battles requires bravery and fierce hand management to carefully optimise your army of characters to win the most battles.  Players will undergo 3 intense rounds where each round players draw 3 head, 3 torso and 3 legs cards and must arrange them to create 3 different characters to lead into battle.  There are 3 rounds of 3 battles, therefore a total of 9 battles. Players must create their characters wisely to race to win 5 out of the 9 battles.


This cheeky little game allows players to try and trick and bluff their opponent to obtain the cards they need to build an original Mix & Mayhem character.  Players will race against each other to collect the cards they need and use their best poker face to stop their opponent.


 This intense tactical battle requires players to successfully protect their kingdom or penetrate their opponents defences.  Players will try to predict their opponents move and use their cards carefully to create unique characters to win in battle.  Each player starts with 3 'Defences' and players will try to win the attacking battles to destroy all of their opponents 'Defences' or win the defending battles to obtain 6 'Defences'.

Hi I’m Simon Harrison, I created the game along with my 2 eldest children (my other two children are only 1 years old and did not offer any valuable input).  One wet and cold day when we were stuck inside and the children were bored and had exhausted their games, I suggested to them that they invent their own game.  With their amazing enthusiasm and creativity they came up with some fantastic ideas.  They suggested the idea of mixing up different characters to then battle each other, I thought this was a really fun idea and wanted to help them turn it into a real game.  The three of us worked together, and had a great time doing it, to create Mix & Mayhem.  We would talk about it at length each day and doodle random characters and then at night when they went to bed I tried to take their fun and crazy ideas and draw the game characters and refine the gameplay. 

We wanted to create an exciting standalone card game that contains everything you need in the box and a game that is fast-paced, easy to learn and requires tactical decision making and is not just purely down to luck.

It has been such an exciting journey creating this fun and furious game and bringing it to life. We have trialed the game extensively, receiving incredible feedback and people have always been desperate to play another round.  We would now love to bring Mix & Mayhem to the world and hopefully we can do that through Kickstarter and with your amazing support. 

Reaching our funding goal will allow us to print Mix & Mayhem at a reasonable and affordable per unit price and make it accessible to more people.  

We’re looking to build an exciting community and obtain the support we need to get this project funded.  Anything you can do to help bring this game to life would be truly amazing - whether you pledge for one of our rewards or simply share this page with someone else you think would enjoy playing it.

Also note that the cards are manufactured by an eco-friendly and socially responsible company. They take their responsibility seriously to protect forests by sourcing materials originated from well-managed forests and support green printing. Additionally, the manufacturing company and production facilities conform to a host of international standards and operate in a socially accountable manner.

Risks and challenges

We have completed all of the artwork and the gameplay has been rigorously tested and refined. We have been working with an excellent manufacturer that specialises in printing playing cards, who have already produced a number of prototypes and are set up to print larger quantities if we are able to achieve our Kickstarter target. Therefore, although this is our first Kickstarter campaign we believe it is a relatively low risk project as everything has been thoroughly tried and tested and we are ready to print and deliver the games to you. The biggest risk is an unforeseen delay in production & manufacture, which is why we have built in some contingency in our delivery schedule.

Thank you so much for taking them time to read this and show your interest in our project.
