Hit Me! is a 2-4 player card game that plays in 5-10 minutes. It is a quick push-your-luck filler with community deck-building. In Hit Me! you are playing as a comic book style character, punching the other players in the face! The last player with life remaining will be the winner!
Hit Me! comes with 40 Life cards, 12 Starter cards (which are labelled "Starter" on the bottom of the card for easy sorting between games), 2 Rules cards, and a clear tuck box. The game is already at the printers and ready to be printed. Help us share this game with friends and family. Here is what you get from the base set:
How To Play:
The game play is VERY EASY to learn. Most players will be understand how to play after just a couple of turns, and will be ready to rival veterans!
At the beginning of each turn, you flip over the top card of the Hit deck. At this point and after each card, you may choose to push your luck and keep going, or stop and beat up the other players! If you keep going, you have a chance to deal more and more damage. However, push your luck too much and you might Bust and hurt yourself! When the Hit deck runs out of cards, the discard pile is shuffled to form a new Hit deck. (This is best part of the game. See why below!)
When players are hit, they discard cards from their Life deck to the discard pile for each Hit! played on them. This is the key to the game! The cards in your Life deck are BETTER than the starter cards. The more damage dealt, the better the Hit deck gets! There are special cards such as:
Blocks: where you discard the last played Hit! card
Counters: Where you discard the last played Trip card
Combos: Where you must play the next 2 cards
Bigger Hits! and Trips!: Hit! x 2, Hit! x3, and Trip! x2
This acceleration brings out the action in the game making you and your friends want more!
The Base Game of Hit Me! is a great game for anyone to get in to! However, we are gamers and I know you are too! There is plenty of add-ons to change the dymanics of each and every time you play.
There are 4 expansions: The League of Just Us, the Marvelous X-Pansion, Girl Power, and Cinemaniacs. Each expansion comes with unique characters that you can choose or pick randomly each time you play. Also, each player can have a Shield and colored Hit! and Whiff cards or many other ability cards. These colored cards give a bonus to the player who plays them if it matches their player color.

Kickstarter Exclusive METAL CARDS!
I cannot express this enough, but these cards look AMAZING! Not only do they shine like Foil cards from other card games, but they are printed on aluminum! They have an incredible shine to them and the pictures do not justify the excitement we get just by looking at them. These cards will only be available through this kickstarter! When you add this to your pledge, just add $5 for each card you would like. (Example, if you want 3 cards, it will be your pledge amount + $15) When the surveys are sent out, we will ask you your choice of characters. Also, you can get one free by ordering the other 8 Character cards. This means that for each additional $40 you back for the metal cards, we will send you all 9 Characters (Including the promo character)

Shipping is $3 for the US, International Shipping is $20
The shipping plan: Once the Kickstarter goes through and we have reached (And hopefully succeeded our goal) Kickstarter takes approximately 2 weeks to confirm all of the payment and release funds. Then we will place an order with the printers and be receiving them about 4 weeks from that point. Finally, we will pack them up and send them out to you! The whole process should mean that you get your game in May!
With the Retailer Level, you will get 10 copies of the game to sell in you store (Suggested MSRP $12.99) and we will be sending along some Promo cards to give to your players. Finally, your store will have exclusive rights to order future deals on Hit Me! such as OP Kits, promos, etc.

Risks and challenges
The most difficult challenge is to get the word out! I am just one man trying to create a fun game, and considering we have to get enough people aware of the game as possible, this is no small feat. The game design is done, the art is done, the printers just need to be notified how many to print! With your help, we can make it happen!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
