About this project
Data East's Burger Time the Card Game takes you back to the arcade of the 80's. When we were all young and had pockets full of quarters! Burger Time is a 2 player (can be played by 1 player) card game in which each "chef" tries to build the burgers from their menu first.
Players draw cards from the deck and build their burgers in order. Each burger is different and requires unique ingredients! Watch out for the bad guys...
Mr. Egg, Mr. Pickle, and Mr. Hot Dog will try to steal your ingredients and slow you down! Each "chef" starts the game with 3 pepper cards in their arsenal to shake away the baddies.
If a player runs out of pepper cards they are in danger, unless they can get their hands on a bonus! A cup of coffee, an order of french fries, and an ice cream cone will restore a used pepper card to keep them cooking!
Burger Time the Card Game was developed by Mike and Casey (with a lot of help from Jeremy, Aaron, and Josh) who founded Oniichan Games in 2016. In early 2017 they were making games and play-testing the heck out of stuff at their local game shop/pub where they host a weekly live stream that involves anyone on the internet in their process. Looking for a big break they happened upon a Japanese company that held the licenses to many of the Data East titles from the 1980's. Remembering a time when he would hold up in his room with his trusty intellivision, Eliminator blasting from his headphones, and playing Burger Time...Mike latched on to the opportunity and began wheeling and dealing. In early 2017 a deal was struck and a contract was signed! Today they present to the world Data East's Burger Time the Card Game! (picture if you will, arcade sounds, 80's metal riffs playing in the background, lasers shooting in the sky, and aviator sunglasses being lowered to expose a wink)

The items below are a few that are to be produced for pledge levels. They will also be for sale after the Kickstarter is over on our website.
At Oniichan Games we can not wait to work with you to deliver the best tasting card game you've ever played! (Note: Please don't eat the game)
Risks and challenges
Producing the game has little risk for our great backers. It's simply a card game and we already have the license, and a manufacturer in place. The biggest risk is in how long it will take to deliver the product to our backers (especially if we have a very successful campaign). We are keeping the production process simple so we can get the game to all of you as soon as possible!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
