Adapt - The Survival Card Game (Canceled)
Adapt puts you, the players, through a survival scenario directly after your cruise ship wrecks on a deserted island.
Adapt is a highly strategic survival card game where you take on not only the environment, but your closest friends. Players take turns facing challenges on the island, exploring, hunting, and deciding when to betray the other players all while they are hunting down the precious relics to win the game. You can avoid dangerous misadventures by collecting and holding onto the right supplies, like the fanny pack!
As the game progresses, you will start to notice others hiding their cards, taking less risks, and trying to steal from other players. Those are the people holding relics.
Fight your way to ultimate survival and collect the relics around the island for a fun game night with the family or a group of friends!
The game was created by Joshua Long and Alex Kruchten, Full Sail University Graduates, 2014. We think the game works great in party situations and we would love to spread the game around the world if possible. That’s where you come in; we can’t distribute this game without you.
So, if you are into card games or survival or cold-hearted betrayal, then please help us make this game become a reality. We think you would love it as much, if not more than we do!

The Origin Story
Adapt started out as a school project back when we were budding game designers (Alex and I). It was much more complicated, too many rules, and not as fun as it could be, we thought. Back then, the game was printed on (and that copy still exists) index cards. I keep that copy around because it’s fun to play the original sometimes. The game had many grimy hands and Cheetos crumbs all over them with the amount of games we pumped out with them. It was one night I was live streaming the game with my mother playing against me that everyone thought we should take the game to the next level. With a month of solid development and polish, we received the first copy of the publisher’s copy…and said, “The world has to see this.”
HELP US BUILD THIS GAME!
We wanted this project on Kickstarter because it’s the fastest way for us to get the game into your hands and make improvements and expansions as a community. We think this game is great, but we need your help making it even better! So, if you are a hardcore survivalist and would like to take a break from the real world to survive on the card island, please back this project and help us build this game!

Risks and challenges
Production of this game is simple: it’s just a card game, so other than getting the game printed, we just need to worry about shipping and getting product moving. The biggest issue would be if this game blew up and became huge, which is why our goal is so low. It’s enough to get some more artists and start building the next expansions. If you back this project, we want to be sure you can start surviving with your friends as soon as possible! This is why we are not offering t-shirts or other complicated tier rewards. Merchandise is awesome, however, it would make the distribution process much longer, and you don’t want that! We are keeping it as simple as possible: support our project and in return we will send you the playable game.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
