Smack Talk Showdown - Wrestling Party Card Game

The Backstory

This project is a labor of love for the three co-founders of Double Turn Games. Smack Talk Showdown was born out of a game jam, iterated on and refined over the past year and now it's ready to share with the world! 

Smack Talk Showdown is the party game where smack talking your opponents is not only encouraged, it's necessary!  The game is all about the art of the wrestling promo. Two players assume the guise of professional wrestlers and go head-to-head for verbal supremacy while a third player dictates the action as a Producer. Everyone not competing in the current turn (which we call a Segment) is the Audience and gets to choose the victor of the round!

The Main Event

When a round starts, each Wrestler draws one name card from each of the two Name card decks. This is their wrestling persona.

 

The Producer then draws a Segment card. This tells the Wrestlers where they are and what they are fighting about. 

 

The Producer then draws three Smack cards to play on either Wrestler during their promo. Each Wrestler draws one Smack card to use in the same way. These cards dictate the action and can be played on either Wrestler during their promos.


(Card art not final) 

The Champion

Each Wrestler has 45 seconds to cut their promo. After which, the Audience votes for the victor. If only three people are playing, the Producer decides. 

Will you reign supreme as the Sultan of Smack?

Why Kickstarter?

We currently have all the cards written and a prototype deck in hand. Now, we need your help funding the game to get it in production!



What You'll Get

Smack Talk Showdown will come with 100 unique Name cards, 50 unique Segment cards, and 350 unique Smack cards.

STRETCH GOAL - if we are able to hit $17,500, we will add an additional 50 cards to the 500 card base set.  25 original content cards, and 25 cards for you to fill in with your ideas!

Because of the time it takes to print the cards and have them shipped to us before fulfillment, any backer tier gets a PDF of all the cards to print for themselves as soon as the funding is met.

If you back us at the $20 level or above, not only will you receive the physical cards in a retail box, you'll receive 10 Kickstarter exclusive cards!

Below are a sample of the Kickstarter exclusive cards

 

Risks and challenges

The card design and content will be finalized and locked before the end of the campaign. If funded, we will immediately set out to publish the game. We have lined up a printer, and are working right now to nail down the logistics of shipping and fulfillment.
We will do everything in our power to get this game into your hands sometime in December of 2017. However, printing will be handled overseas, and there may be delays in the production or shipping of the game. We will keep all backers informed of such delays and developments.
