In IncrediBrawl, each player guides a colorful cast of characters, from all corners of the imagination, as they meet in an epic clash for glory! Summon the right characters at the right time to outwit your opponents; use whatever strategy you can muster to overcome the randomness of the brawl! Amass the most glory along the way to become the ultimate champion in this crazy contest of luck and wits!
IncrediBrawl is designed to be a fun and chaotic casual card game. What sets it apart from other casual games is its scalable rules framework, called Game Modes. These optional rules allow you to play the way you want, based on your gaming group: from a simplified version perfect for younger children and families all the way to a more complex and strategic game great for more serious gamers.
IncrediBrawl is a card game for 2-4 players. A typical game takes around 30 minutes, and with the various game modes, is perfect for ages 6 and up!

Each card in IncrediBrawl has a unique ability, which adds interest and strategy into every game. Choosing which character to play and what ability to trigger at just the right time is key to collecting the most Glory and winning the game!
For basic gameplay, players will shuffle their deck and draw 5 cards to start the game. Each player will simultaneously select a character from their hand and play them face down at the current location. After selecting their characters, all players will flip over their cards simultaneously to begin the brawl!
After triggering any abilities revealed by the flip, players then compare their power type and power levels to determine who wins each scrap and the overall brawl. The winner gains one Glory, plus activates any abilities their character may have that trigger off of winning. Each player then discards the played character, and draw one new card before the next round begins. The first player to reach 10 Glory wins the game!

We've got some really fun Stretch Goals planned for IncrediBrawl! And even better, all Stretch Goals are now for ALL LEVELS (excluding Kitten). This means that unlocking these Stretches will affect all copies of IncrediBrawl (Physical and Complete PnP) and make the base game better for everyone, both now for this Kickstarter and in game stores across the world in the future!
These Add-Ons are a way for you to add some really fun IncrediBrawl-themed swag to your pledge. Simply add the amount for any extras you may want onto your normal pledge amount. Once the Kickstarter is over, you'll receive a backer survey from us confirming both your total pledge amount and the number of extras you wanted. Please contact us with any questions!
V3G is a brand new game studio, located in Indianapolis, Indiana, but we’re guessing you already knew that if you've watched the video. What you may not know is that we have the capability to uniquely develop for both traditional and digital mediums. How so, you ask?
We're part of a small interactive agency creating marketing and B2B applications for companies large and small. We enjoy our work, and think we do it pretty well. But we want to grow and expand our capabilities, by creating things for ourselves, not just the next client to walk through the door.
It's also because we have some very talented people working for us that share a singular vision regarding gaming. Our view is that a digital game does not necessarily have to mirror the traditional one. We believe that games should be tailored to embrace and harness the medium in which they are produced. And above all else, our shared desire is to create great games and experiences with friends and family – regardless of where or how you play them.

We've chosen Kickstarter over more traditional means of funding because we feel it's perfect for what we're trying to do - break into the game business while finding fans and earning support from the get-go.
While we believe in IncrediBrawl, and have already invested hundreds and hundreds of hours in development, art and design, we also know that $15k isn't enough to print the game we want to make. We need to know if the gaming public is interested in both IncrediBrawl, and in our unique approach to game development. We've got big ideas for where we can take this hybrid approach to gaming, and we want you to be a part of that! We hope that you will view your involvement as more than just a pledge, and instead consider it an investment in V3G.
From a practical standpoint, we need to know how many copies to print, and get a better idea for what the demand may be like as we bring IncrediBrawl to game stores worldwide. We want to use the highest quality components possible, and add lots of nice "extras" to the base game that will make it stand tall next to any game on your shelf.
While we want this Kickstarter to be super-successful, and hope it will be, we aren't doing this to try and make a huge profit. Anything left over once all the bills are paid will be poured directly back into V3G, to fund development of the digital version of IncrediBrawl, as well as support future traditional game projects.
Risks and challenges
While this is the first traditional game project for V3G, it is not the first project we've managed from beginning to end. We're used to handling large projects for clients on a daily basis, with tight budgets and dates that can't be missed, no different than this Kickstarter campaign. Furthermore, because we're an established company already, you don't have to worry about whether or not we'll deliver, or where your Kickstarter funds are really going.
IncrediBrawl is completely designed and illustrated, except for any stretch goal rewards that may be earned during the course of this Kickstarter. Our printer is selected, and ready to begin, as soon as we can get them the files. We have several options for fulfillment and distribution lined up as well, based on the success level of this campaign.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, our goal is to bring IncrediBrawl to you as quickly as possible. This is currently scheduled for February 2014, but every effort will be made to speed that up if possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We wanted to keep the pledge levels clean and organized, which may be causing a little confusion on how to back for our neighbors to the north!
If you're a Canadian backer, simply select the appropriate pledge level and select "US" as your location. Then manually add the appropriate Canadian shipping amount to your pledge, based on the note in that pledge level.
We'll make sure we cover your location and shipping address in the final backer survey!
Please contact us directly to inquire about Retailer or International Group orders. We're willing to be flexible on larger orders, and pass any savings in shipping on to you!
Any extra games added onto your pledge will match the level you pledge at, for stretch goals.
This means that at Ninja level and above, your extra games will indeed include all stretch goals earned!
