A Shout-Out from THE DICE TOWER on BOARD GAME BREAKFAST from Nick of BOARD GAME BRAWL  (We're at 11:15)!

In Capes and Villains, you are already in the heat of the battle. There are no preparation or equipment phases, no pre-planning or gradual movement into battle. Nope, you are there, getting your cape tightened around your neck or dishing out the pain yourself. 

With various modes of play and a large roster of characters at your disposal, Capes and Villains offer up great re-playability and a mashup between great comic book lore and an arcade feel!

To find out who these Capes and Villains are, check out their storyline on our website: http://shingogames.com

Why Kickstarter?

Capes and Villains has been vigorously playtested this past year and all of the cards are complete. What we're missing is the awesome artwork that makes this game really shine. Fortunately, we have a lineup of talented and very excited artists who are ready to get started. The characters and cards you see on this Kickstarter are their awesome works of art. With funding, we will start art production immediately and following, produce your game and rewards quickly through our professional manufacturing and distribution vendors. We're looking forward to bringing our world to you! 

Represent your Cape or Villain!

Here are a few avatars to wear proudly among the masses in Kickstarter and beyond!

Risks and challenges

This is the debut of Shingo Games and our first game to be produced in the industry. Because of this, there will be always be a bit of skepticism in the back of everyones' mind as to whether we will produce/deliver on time and with a high caliber of components. As well, this is our relaunch for Capes and Villains. We learned quite a bit during our initial launch that we have reworked this overall campaign to be even more backer friendly and exciting!

Being long time gamers, Kickstarter backers, and having a background in print/marketing production, we hold a high value for quality and integrity over convenience. We will strive to produce the best we can with our long-term production partners and give backers what they really care about... a great game!
