"Shoot Your Friends is a raucous, wonderfully surprising game that you'll be talking about the next day." -Brian Tinsman, Lead designer on 7 Magic: The Gathering TCG releases

"Shoot Your Friends is a fast, frantic, silly, good time." -Larry Correia, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Monster Hunter Series

"Trash War is the funnest game I've played in years. My kids ask to play it every night. We are addicted." -Jared Hess Writer/director of Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre

"Every game night, my kids try to talk all the grownups into playing Hoagie. And as often as not, they succeed. This game is hilarious and disgusting by equal measures!" -D.J. Butler, Author of The Extraordinary Journeys of Clockwork Charlie

We believe that Kickstarters should entertain backers every day. That's why we are giving away plenty of free stuff along the way, such as rock and roll songs written by musicians in the game, killer artwork, and plenty of daily entertainment, audio/video/print, every day during our Kickstarter.

 CHOPS isn't just a board game. It is an all-immersive world of rock and roll. Every musician in the game has his or her own distinct personality. Every day, we will release a new video bio of one of the musicians. 

We'd like to introduce you to a few of the musicians, along with their playing cards. We are publishing exhaustive bios of most of the musicians daily for our backers.

 

  

 

 

 

 Like any Rock and Roll Fantasy, CHOPS has a back-story. Here is the skinny:

While your friends wasted time on paltry endeavors such as getting good grades, preparing for college, holding down jobs, and listening to the man, you answered a higher call: the call of ROCK! After spending every waking hour of your formative years learning to play, it's time to cut the apron strings and strike out. Question is: do you have the CHOPS to become a superstar?

In CHOPS, the Rock and Roll board game from 3 Headed Giant Games, you go against opposing rockers by forming your own band and playing gigs. Gigs pay Cashola. Even more importantly, your band generates BUZZ. At the end of the game, the player with the most BUZZ becomes the top rocker.

But be careful, Rock and Roll can be dangerous. With obstacles like bar fights, band politics, the threat of military school, alien abduction, demonic possession, and pyrotechnics gone bad, rock and roll street is far from easy street.

Learn the whole story by watching this CHOPS Game Trailer:

Stretch goal 1 unlocked!
Stretch goal 1 unlocked!

Excellent work. You have unlocked the first stretch goal. We are happy to introduce an extremely limited edition musician card. This card will ONLY be given to our Kickstarter backers at Early Bird 1 level or higher. To make this card even more valuable, we are going to individually number each card. That means that you will receive a 1-of-a-kind musician card should you choose to back CHOPS at Early Bird 1 level or higher.

We introduce Snorry the Skull-Splitter, a new singer. You can shuffle his card into your deck and add him to your rock and roll quiver.

Check out his card below. Also, as a bonus, watch Snorry's bio video (also below). Backers will continue to receive a new musician bio video every day throughout this 30-day Kickstarter.

Thanks for the support, all. We have plenty more exciting stretch goals to unlock, so stay tuned. And, of course, ROCK ON!

Quirky Engine Entertainment isn't just a dude with an idea for a game. We are a young and hungry-as-a-shark game company. We have already released 3 kick-butt games into the world.

Panic Fire (formerly known as Shoot Your Friends) - Pits 2 to 6 players across the table with nothing but a deck of cards and a toy gun between them in a trigger-happy game of lightning-fast card play. Here's a 30-second preview.

Trash War - a game of medieval combat in a modern junk yard puts players up against each other in a trash-flinging battle to crumble the enemies' rampart walls. 

 Hoagie - a goofy, sandwich-building adventure for kids of all ages. In this game, players try to be the first to build the perfect hoagie sandwich while spoiling other players' ingredients with the Oogies, a pesky gang of sandwich ruining creatures. 

 

Risks and challenges

If you back CHOPS, there is NO risk. You will receive your products in a timely manner.

We are a game company, not just a guy with an idea for a game. There is a tremendous barrier for entry in getting a game from the drawing board out to the market. We have broken through that barrier 3 times now with 3 great games (Hoagie, Panic Fire/Shoot Your Friends, Trash War). That means we have secured the resources to invent, develop, play-test, and produce top-quality products.

Get ready for CHOPS, our new Rock and Roll Board game.
