Book It! The Wrestling Promoter Card Game

$31,342

519

In the world of pro wrestling, the REAL cut-throat competition comes from the promoters of your favorite events! Take control of your own wrestling promotion. Choose your style, sign your wrestlers, develop local talent, boost your reputation, and sabotage your rivals! Think you've got what it takes to run the best pro wrestling company in the world? Well, then... 
BOOK IT!

Each type of promotion has benefits that will allow you to get the most out of wrestlers with a similar style. Unfortunately, you won't know what your competition has chosen in advance! Everyone reveals their pick of promotion at the same time, so not only do you have to make the best choice for yourself, but you have to try choose the promotion that will give you the least direct competition!

What sort of fans are going to enjoy your promotion? Do you want to stay in one spot or take your show on the road? Choose what city best suits you... Or muscle in on your opponent's turf! Run your shows in one of a dozen cities from around the world, each with their own unique attributes.

In your quest to run the best pro wrestling company in the world, you're going to need to sign some talent! Fight with your competitors and try to book the wrestlers that are going to best fit your promotion, increase your reputation, and make you the most money! Each turn, promoters will choose who they want for their show based on the wrestlers available in the marketplace. Decide who you want based on how they'll fit into your plans, how much they cost, and how much signing them can hurt your opponent! But don't forget to develop your local talent as well. A promotion can't prosper on big, expensive names alone!

What type of person do you want to be? Promoters can choose to purchase cards that will give them special abilities or events, increasing their stock and maybe putting some extra coin in their pocket.

They can ALSO spend money in an attempt to screw things up for their competitors! Mess with their bookings! Damage their ring! Hurt their advertising, and more! Be careful, though... Word tends to get around when someone is being a scumbag!

If you have Tabletop Simulator on your PC, you can give try Book It right now! The full version of the game is available for FREE! Just follow the link to the Steam Workshop, subscribe, and play away!

Don't have Tabletop Simulator and still want to try the game out? No problem! As long as you're willing to do some mild arts and crafts you can check out the print and play version of the game for free too!

Looking for some extra copies of Book It! for your store shelves? No problem! Just drop me a message and I'll be happy to discuss sending out multiple copies. However, we are not offering any "retailer levels" of rewards. Just get in touch with me and we'll hook you up!

Shipping is always one of the most complicated parts of any Kickstarter campaign. Customs, distribution, tariffs, and so on. Luckily for our backers, the shipping is easy!

It's ten bucks.

Doesn't matter where you are.

Thanks to our plan to ship the game directly from the manufacturer to the distribution centers, and our commitment to keeping packaging as low-profile as possible, we can offer the same reasonable rate of shipping no matter where in the world you might be!

*Please don't buy our game if you live on the moon.

Risks and challenges

The majority of the "hard stuff" in regards to "Book It!" is complete: We have all of the art done for the base game, and it is ready for production as of right now. The biggest challenges will be getting any custom art created for backers, and the logistics of shipping the game all over the world. However, we've done our due diligence and a whole lot of homework, and we can comfortably say that we are up to the challenge.

    Oh boy, here we go...

    Okay, so if you decide to shell out some serious cash in support of "Book It", I will show you my appreciation in the biggest way I can. I will drive out to wherever you are, in the continental United States. With me I will bring your copy of "Book It!", and hand deliver it to you.

    Additionally, I will bring a table, which we will then set up, and you will put me through. That's right. You can put me through a table. I don't know how to say "Thank you" any bigger than that. We'll also include the "Then, Now, Forever" level for you as well.
