Flip! - Rummy with a Twist!

"Flip!" is an exciting game that will keep you on your toes as you steal each other's cards while trying be the first to run out of them!

Game contents: 90 double-sided cards in a tuck box. 1 of the cards is for basic rules.
Game contents: 90 double-sided cards in a tuck box. 1 of the cards is for basic rules.

 Each player is trying to get rid of their hand of cards by playing "Sets" and "Runs"...

...BUT the catch is that all of the cards are double-sided. That means your opponents can see the backs, and TAKE your cards. Use 'em or lose 'em! 

This adds a new level of excitement even between turns as you find yourself hoping to be stolen from, but wait, oh no, not THAT card! The object of the game is to get rid of all of your cards first, so you might even be helping others when you help yourself to their cards! 

 Special "Flip!" cards spice things up even more, causing players to flip over their entire hand! Is your plan screwed up, or will you discover new possibilities?

 "Flip!" contains 90 cards, and is best played with 3-4 people, but can be played with just 2, or more than four if you like. There are slight rule changes depending on how many players. The game is played in rounds, which are usually no more than 5 minutes. You can play to a predetermined number of rounds or to a predetermined score.

Additional game variant:

I've got a new way to play Flip! For now I'm calling it "Last Man Standing" (witty or punny suggestions for a name are welcome!)
The way it works is instead of trying to be the first to get rid of your cards, your aim is to be the last one with cards in hand. This game may be great for larger groups like 5-6 or more! You want to avoid playing your own cards when possible, but they are available to you if you need them to play cards that you steal from your opponents!

 My name is Ben Mora. I can't get enough of playing table games. New game ideas are always on the back of my mind, so I founded Mora Games to begin my epic journey of being a part of what I love.

For those not familiar with Kickstarter, this is a way to raise the money I need in order to mass produce my game and deliver it to my supporters. My $5000 goal is what is needed to produce approximately 319 copies of this game.

I have several ideas in the works, but this was the simplest. "Flip!" is my first ever venture into the Kickstarter world. Follow Mora Games on Facebook to keep in touch and find out about what's to come.

Thank you for your support!

*All pledge levels include the shipping cost to USA backers. International backers pay extra for shipping.

In the spirit of transparency to my loyal backers, here's how the pricing structure is figured:
To the first 50 backers who choose the $14 pledge level, I am giving the game at a net loss to me. This is my way of saying thank you for your support, and for being quick to help me build momentum for this project. The base pledge level of $16 covers the kickstarter and amazon fees, production cost, and shipping cost to US backers, leaving a small margin of padding to cover miscellaneous costs related to creating and marketing this game.

FAQ

  • I found what seemed to be the least expensive option available to me in this situation. Order fulfillment will be handled by The Game Crafter LLC, and the best way to go was USPS Flat Rate Priority Mail.

    Originally I wasn't even going to offer international shipping; I agree it's very expensive and I didn't think anyone would want to buy it that badly, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to at least offer it. Sure enough, I'm honored to see a few people outside the US have given me their support. I greatly appreciate that!
