About

Vehicle Vendetta - what's The Point? It's a fast-paced, card-based, racing game for ages 10 and up. (Warning: contains 80's pop culture references!)

How Can I Win? Cards can let you make passing maneuvers (might as well make use of Pythagoras' Theorem and Newton's Laws, not to mention Stunt Ramps and Bribes).

You can also upgrade or change your vehicle (Stretched Limo or Hoverboard, anyone?), and race on different terrain (such as Snow Friction or The High Road).

That's all nice and positive, but the real fun is in the cards that you keep in your trunk. They can enable you to damage or steal your opponent's vehicles, drivers and upgrades. Incite road rage with cards such as the School Run and Road Tacks or sabotage their efforts with cards such as the Shifty Valet and a Dodgy SatNav.

Sounds Easy. Yes, but you know all those things listed above? Well, that's what your opponents will also be trying to do.

Sounds Stupid. Yes, absolutely. And silly. You may have figured that out by now.

Sounds Awesome. Correct again, you're doing very well!

The Game. It's a stand-alone card game for 2 - 6+ players. The game mechanics are simple; you draw and play cards during your turn and may sometimes play cards on opponents during their turn. All players start with a generic car. Drawing more cards may provide upgrades or drivers or different vehicle types, which are played onto the table and they become your vehicle, giving you bonuses. Your vehicle will also have a Trunk, into which you pour all your malice (also known as Event cards). You may play Event cards from your trunk on other vehicles, which may damage them (they may lose their vehicle/upgrade/driver) or cause them to lose position. There are even cards that allow you to steal other player's vehicles/upgrades/drivers/trunk cards. There are also Obstacles and Terrain cards, which may force you to temporarily change your driving strategy until overcome. Each player's turn is fast and simple, and the rule for each card is printed on the card.

Risks and challenges

We have quotes from several local(ish) printers that can manufacture this game. It's just a card game. I have visited some of them and can assure you that they exist. If our preferred manufacturer suddenly gets a massive order from the Super-Galactic Snap Symposium and forgets about us, we have backups.

Clearly, our artist Clayton is awesome but the illustration for this game is still a lot of work. The delivery dates allow for much more time than he needs to complete this project and for the printing. He is a graphic designer by profession (knows what he's doing) and has already worked on many of the cards in anticipation of this project being successfully funded, so pledge now and don't leave him hanging!
