Take up the mantle of a powerful sorcerer. Wield the destructive forces of the elements and be the last sorcerer standing. 

Cho Han Sorcery is a competitive card and dice game. Games take approximately 5-20 minutes and can be 2-8 players, ages 10+, the more the crazier.

Each player must choose an opponent to cast their spell at. Before rolling they guess the result of their die roll, even or odd. They then roll two six sided dice. If they were correct the higher die of the two is used for damage, if they were incorrect the lower die is used for damage. From here is were the fun really begins.

Each player must manage their limited amount of cards to alter the damage being dealt or making it change all together. Any player may play cards on any cast spell, so things can get heated and painful really quick. If you choose to make friends just remember only one sorcerer can be left at the end. 

Below is a How to play video featuring the "Structured Variant" of play.

The game has been tested. The game has all the art done. The game has been enjoyed. Now, Cho Han Sorcery just needs to get on more table tops to spread the enjoyment, that is our goal.

Risks and challenges

If we hit our $9,000 stretch goal production and shipping time will double.
This will also require a few days to tweak the artwork to fit the new packaging.

If we hit our $10,000 stretch goal we will need to finish the artwork before production can begin. We will begin art production of the expansion when it looks like that stretch goal is within everyone's reach.

If we exceed our stretch goals stay tuned for more stretch goals and other updates!
