No Regerts is a fast-paced, PVP-style card game about tattoo design. Your goal is to cover your body with designs to become the most badass by the end of the game. But be careful, as in the real world of tattooing, there are some that are epic and some that are lame. And with your fellow players attempting to give you bad advice on every turn, you may end up with a few unfortunate tribals or maybe even an adorable unicorn. The only question is, will you be the most badass or will you be left with regerts? Games run around 25-45 minutes and can play 2-6 players.
Whether you have a ton of tattoos or none at all, it's no secret that tattoos can be amazing or go horribly wrong, just ask the internet. Even though No Regerts is a game about scoring points, the theme adds a whole other layer to the gameplay. When a friend drops some bad advice on you and you end up getting your ex's name tattooed on your chest for negative points, you feel that. And when you turn it around by getting a badass tiger on your back, you feel that too. There's a level of satisfaction that goes along with playing cards when their content connects with their point value on a more personal level.
But is it fun?
You're damn right it is! On the surface, No Regerts is a simple game with a snarky attitude, which makes it easy to learn, quick to get started and best of all, it keeps everyone laughing. But as each player dives in, deeper strategies reveal themselves, giving them a surprising number of options. So as your friends start a conversation about that tattoo on your leg that looks kinda like a sandwich, you can plan your next move to take them all down.

There are 66 unique illustrations in the base game and over 70 if we can make our stretch goals. In preparation we did extensive research when deciding on what we wanted the art to look like. One of us even sat for over 30 hours of tattooing to get a full understanding of the art and culture of the medium. (Now that's dedication!) We wanted the art work to be fun, vibrant and cohesive so that the game didn't seem jarring or out of place, but also represent a variety of styles and concepts which will play a significant role in later expansions. So we tried to include everything from playful “New School” animals to “Retro” epic dragons along with a few tribals and pin-ups thrown in for good measure.

Three years ago, we met after being invited to game night at a friend's house. We fell in love and lived happily ever after... then we made a card game. Originally thought of in the shower, No Regerts was meant to be one of those games that brought friends together and kept them laughing, just like the night we met. Thanks to our decades of experience in art and design, we were fully equipped to turn what was once a random shower thought, into a completely illustrated deck of 216 cards.
There are two planned expansions to No Regerts, each adding 54 cards to the game.
1. The Decades Expansion
This expansion adds a new type of modifier that doesn't just alter one tattoo, but instead, they will change everything by sending all players back to one of six decades of tattoo's past. Some decades will double the scores of certain tattoos and others will change the victory conditions for the whole game. Let's just say the 90's can get pretty crazy.
2. The Not Safe for Work Expansion
This expansion adds a whole bunch of super inappropriate tattoo designs to the game. Just imagine giving your friends some "Bad Advice" and watching them get a tattoo of... OK, we can't even describe it here, our parents are gonna read this.
Risks and challenges
No Regerts is the first project for us on Kickstarter, so really anything can happen. We researched everything we could get our hands on, but there's always the chance that we may have overlooked something. Fortunately our experience in business, art and design, have given us a huge leg up on knowing how to handle all of the production aspects of the game.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
