About

KABURA The Card Game is a revolutionary, highly strategic collectible card game. It is played by two players and the goal of the game is to discard all of your cards as fast as possible, while not letting your opponent to discard his. Use special abilities and spell cards, take advantage of the game's rules, manipulate your opponent, summon mystical beasts, demons, and cute strawberries, and use logical thinking to take control of the game and defeat your opponent.

KABURA The Card Game is revolutionary because it merges the digital version and physical version of the game into one, so that players won't have to choose between playing online or with friends IRL. They will now be able to do both... and you guessed it... with the same deck of cards. While playing KABURA you will no longer need two versions of your deck, the deck you have online will be the same deck you have at the fingertips of your hands. 

Another REVOLUTIONARY feature we introduce is the ability to play online with real cards (more about this in the "THE FRUITY STUFF" section). I'm sure you agree with us when we say that nothing beats the feeling of actually holding a card in your hand and playing with it in real life. 

The world of KABURA features mystical beasts, magical spells, galactic monsters, deadly machines, and other interplanetary species. Collect decks of fire, water, earth or air element cards or if you're more into outer space collect non-element cards.

The card gameplay itself is a breath of fresh air, it has no analogs. Playing the game feels like a new experience every time you play it and it brings excitement to players of all levels of competitiveness. KABURA is truly a one of a kind, revolutionary card game.   

The idea for KABURA the card game was born when my friends and I were playing a very popular online collectible card game (I'm sure you can figure out which game that is) versus one another while sitting two feet apart from each other. One of my friends mentioned how silly that was and wished that we could be able to play the game with real cards and not have to spend our time staring into a screen. This sparked my imagination and an idea for a card game popped into my head. My three friends and I (a game developer, a designer, and a financial specialist) have been big fans of all card games since we were little kids so we decided to play around with this idea and soon enough we realized that we might have a hit card game on our hands. So for the past year or so we have been working extra hard creating the base of the game and developing the business idea as a whole. After many failed prototypes and bad versions of the game, we have finally created a full proper card game, and all we need now is your support. 

"Trade cards with your friends to expand your KABURA card collection"

To make our card game more exciting we introduced different variations of card rarity. We all remember how excited we would get when we opened a card pack and found a rare card inside of it, well, KABURA cards take that feeling of excitement to the next level. When opening a KABURA card pack you will instantly know if you got a good card, just by looking at each cards gem. Gems are sorted in this way: White gem cards are common, Blue gem cards are uncommon, Red and black gem cards are rare, purple and orange are super rare. Gems not only indicate the rarity of the card but also its power. The higher the rarity the more powerful the card. Here are a few examples of the cards you could get:

"Collect all of the rarest KABURA cards."
"Collect all of the rarest KABURA cards."

With KABURA you no longer have to worry about having a deck for online playing and another deck for playing with friends. The cards you order online will be instantly available to play with online, while the physical cards are being shipped to you. Once shipped you will not only have a deck of cards you can boast with online but a deck of cards you can feel and touch and admire. This is possible because each physical card has its own unique scannable barcode.

"KABURA is the first card game that removes all barriers between playing in real life and online."
"KABURA is the first card game that removes all barriers between playing in real life and online."

To be able to play with your cards online all you have to do is upload them to the cloud by scanning their barcode with your smartphone camera. You will have your own virtual portfolio where your cards will be stored. You can then build a virtual deck from that portfolio of cards and play with it online. And if you decide to trade one of your cards with one of your friend's cards all you have to do is transfer the card's rights to him. It's as easy as that.

You can also scan your cards using the KABURA card scanner. This scanner not only allows you to upload your cards to the app, but it also has one REVOLUTIONARY feature... it allows you to play online with real cards... yes you heard me... real cards. The scanner scans each card you place in it and instantaneously sends the cards information to the app, which shows up on the screen of the other player. Playing cards versus someone who is hundreds of miles away from you, how cool is that? 

"Play in real time versus opponents from around the world while using physical cards."
"Play in real time versus opponents from around the world while using physical cards."

Once you upload your deck there are three ways you can play KABURA: playing IRL with real cards, playing online with virtual cards and playing online with real cards using the KABURA card scanner. The digital game itself is what we are funding for. We have already started developing the game, but we are lacking funds to hire more developers. The game will be released on both mobile and PC allowing you to play everywhere you go. You will receive free cards as you play and level up or you can buy new packs inside of the app.

"You will be able to play KABURA on PC, Mac, Android and iOS."

The game is played by two players both taking turns one at a time. The goal of the game is to discard all of your battle cards as fast as possible, while not allowing your opponent to discard his. Each player must have their own 23 card deck constructed from the cards they have collected. A deck must contain at least 6 spell cards, 1 field card and 16 Battle cards (of which 7 must be "common" rarity) to be eligible for play. A deck can have a maximum amount of one super rare card, three rare cards, five uncommon cards, six spell cards, and one field card. Your deck must have at least one elemental card and one non-elemental card and you must not have more than two copies of the same battle card or spell card.

The funds we receive through this project mainly will go into the development of the online game which will be released on PC, Mac iOS and Android. We are in the early alpha stage of development, but we expect the online version of the game to be released sometime in the year 2022 if we don't reach any of our stretch goals. Currently, the only thing we are lacking is manpower, because we only have one part-time developer. If we reach our stretch goals we will be able to hire more developers to finish the game, basically the more money we raise the faster the game will be finished. 

Also, a part of the funds we receive will go into helping pack the game with more original art, testing out new card production technologies and growing the business as a whole. We are also working on releasing a modified rule version of KABURA to allow it to be played by up to four additional players.

KABURA cards are made from only the highest quality materials so that each and every card would feel elegant and luxurious. Our goal is to make KABURA cards highly collectible items, that's why we do our best to ensure the cards have a high value, that card designs leave players in awe and that each new card a player receives makes him experience a new emotion bonding him with the card.

Every single card is inspected by hand to ensure that it reaches our high standards of quality. Card packs are going to be sold at a consistent price to ensure that each KABURA card maintains a high value and that they don't get over-produced. New card expansions will be released every six months. 

We offer a wide variety of rewards to choose from each differing in value to match everyone's pocket size.

Our recommended buy would be the Omniverse deck pack as it includes the best cards to get you started. Also, another good buy would be the lower-tier Galaxy deck pack, which also has great cards.

Deck packs will come in special packages that are specifically made for KABURA cards. These packages are made by a high-quality package production company that has unique package patents, making our packs one of a kind.

If you are looking for a more valuable reward, then you should consider buying one of the ten "Dumba the Eternal" Gold Edition cards. These cards are extremely limited so don't miss out on the opportunity to buy them. 

"The Gold Edition "Dumba The Eternal". Only 10 of these cards will ever exist. All 10 are going to be sold on Kickstarter to commemorate their 10 year anniversary"

Our most special reward is the card scanner. It allows the player to play online using real cards. We recommend buying this if you want to have the full KABURA experience. The card scanner will be released around the same time as the game, and if there is high demand for it then it will enter mass production soon after. But for now, we are going to sell only ten "version one" scanners.

FINAL WORDS:

We are looking forward to finally releasing this project to the world and we give our big thanks to anyone who backs it. We really think this card game could kick open some doors and who knows maybe even change the world... well, at least make it more fun to be in.

Risks and challenges

Some of the bigger challenges and risks associated with this project include: not meeting deadlines, encountering production problems, not meeting high demand and miscalculating required funds. Our main goal is to ensure the cards get delivered to all backers by the end of 2019. We want to make every single person who backed this project a happy camper and we will do whatever it takes to do so.
