Final Boss: Next Stage card game (Canceled)
Kill Monsters, destroy your friends and defeat the Final Boss. This expansion adds Stages!
A card game where players compete against each other to defeat the Final Boss.
Finally, it's game night!
You and your friends decide to try an old game cartridge you found in the attic. As you blow the dust away you can read "Danger: Final Boss" hand-written in the label, but there is no more info. "What kind of game is this?" you wonder, as you slide the cartridge in. As soon as you turn on the console power, a lightning strikes your house and a vortex of energy swallows you and your friends into the TV...
Stages add new dimension to the game, by changing the rules of each combat. That means that Enemies won't be the same anymore, even if you run into a familiar monster. You and your friends will need to adapt your strategies to overcome each Stage. Are you ready?
-Important, you will need the base game to play this expansion. Check the 45€ pledge or visit our shop (links below) if you don't have it-
In Final Boss, players have been swallowed by an evil video game and have to compete against each other to collect Victory Points and defeat the Final Boss. Every turn, Enemies appear and players will fight them, using their cards to gain an advantage in combat or to sabotage other players. Use your cards wisely and collect as many Victory Coins as you can, and you may be able to defeat the Final Boss!
This expansion features 31 cards (16 Stages, 5 Weapons, 2 Specials, 3 Enemies and 2 Final Bosses) plus more by unlocking Stretch Goals (check the updates to find how many cards the game currently has).
The luxury edition tin box will fit both the base edition and the expansion, and will include the new rules. For the budget edition, the rules will be available in PDF.
Hilarious, fast and easy to play
Easy to learn, hard to master. The game mechanics are easy to learn and in a couple of games you will know all the rules to play and have fun with the crazy card effects, however mastering the advanced tactics and combos will require skill and knowledge of all the cards in the game! The game gets a twist with the addition of Stages, that will change the rules of each Combat, allowing for endless different scenarios where players will have to use their wits in order to be victorious.
- Easy to learn game mechanics, get rollin' in a couple of 20 minutes games!
- All cards in the game have unique effects, which rewards the skill of the player. Use the right card at the right time!
- All players can influence the game all the time. NO waiting during another player's turn!
- Turn the tables in your favor with crazy card combos... or get completely screwed by your friends :)
- Quick and dynamic 30 minutes games
- Lots of laughs and fierce competition between friends
- Crazy cards with parodies of your favorite video games
- Beautiful looking artwork and retro 80s-90s vibe in every aspect of the game
- Endless combinations of cards that make every game night unique
1. Tweaked the rules to make the game more fun and balanced. You will run out of cards much less often!
2. Rewritted the game rules to make them easier to understand. We're also adding a short version of the rules, probably in the form of an extra card, that you can follow during the game.
3. Of course, updated the rules to take Stages into account
Check out this video explaining the basic game mechanics so that you can get an idea of how the game plays before you decide to pledge anything. Warning: English with a thick Spaniard accent...
The more stretch goals we achieve thanks to your help, the more content we will be able to add to the game.
We would love to have a game as big and beautifully looking as possible. We have more content and surprises in mind, please help us reach them!
You can help us with your pledge, and also by helping us reach our goals in social media!
This campaign is linked to the Spanish and German campaigns, so the money raised there will also help to unlock Stretch Goals here.

We will work with the same manufacturer, as the quality is top notch. Take a look at the base game:
I personally took care of QC, and I will try to do the same with this edition too:

About the Creators:
The idea for this game started while having some beers and discussing that there should be a game that combines all our favorite video games from our childhood (and not so childhood) into one epic crazy game. Thanks to the support we got in our first campaign, we decided to bring an expansion that adds even more awesomeness to the game!
We are two geeks which grew up surrounded by video games, we played and replayed for endless hours classics games (and we still do!). Our tortuous careers finally converged into what we love: creating games. If you help us, we promise to make more and more awesome games in the future!
Luis: Hey! I am the main artist of the game. I grew up playing, among many other games, Sonic 1, 2 and 3 (& Knuckles!). I loved going Hyper Sonic in Angel Island, and I hated Labyrinth Zone. As a kid, I was drawing Sonic ALL THE TIME. A hedgehog that can go Super Saiyan? Yes, please. Later on, I would never forget the spooky vibe of the Forest Temple in Ocarina of Time, and going through the broken bridge to Gerudo's Valley, to finally see what was on the other side. More recently, in the time I find in between illustration and illustration I've been getting all dragon priest masks in Skyrim, and "gitting gud" at Dark Souls. I put a lot of care into making fun and amazing artwork for the cards, I hope you love them!
Rafael: Hi! I'm the main designer of the game. When I was little I was an avid reader, and loved to play pen and paper role games (still do). I got a Snes when I was a boy and since then I've been hooked to video games. I probably had too much imagination and was daydreaming too often while in the classroom. I got my first computer when I was twelve and since then I've been shooting demons on DOOM and splashing headcrabs on Half-Life. I still ragequit when I get a losing spree at Counter-Strike. My secret vice is 2D fighting games, but I have never gotten good enough at it. Benimaru and Iori are my favorite characters of all time! I have spent countless hours playtesting and refining the cards and the game, and I think I've come up with the ultimate "friendship destroyer".
Head to our twitter, or facebook to propose new cards, stretch goals or reward levels! We are eager to get your feedback and make our game better!
The money raised will go to:
- Pay the artist
- Print the game
- Ship the game
- Business related costs.
We are mostly ready for production, only missing a few illustrations for the remaining cards. We will keep you updated with the production progress if we get funded.
Risks and challenges
We have learned from our previous campaign, so I think this time we will be able to deliver the game without delays. We will focus on having everything ready for production right after the campaign, and there will not be any mistakes with logistics.
I will make sure that every game will be carefully wrapped in bubble plastic for extra protection before delivery.
