About

Kick Punch is a wrestling inspired card/board game for 2-4 players and takes 45 minutes to play.  Easy to play but takes skill and luck to master.  Kick and Punch your way through your opponents using your unique wrestler and their skills to become the king of the ring!  Fight your friends, destroy your enemies in Kick Punch!

Hey, my name is Zac Skinner and I am the creator of Kick Punch and the Founder / sole employee of Vorpal Entertainment.  Much like how you have a band with a band name even though there is only one person in the band.  I like making things that I enjoy and am passionate about that I think other people would enjoy as well.  I love watching professional wrestling and love playing board games with friends so why not combine the two together?  Kick Punch was born out of love and passion and I hope that you will love it as well.

Rulebook PDF: http://bit.ly/2lTdEtn (Please keep in mind that this version of the rulebook is not final and is actively being worked on)

The goal of Kick Punch is to get to 20 power before your opponents.  You gain power by knocking players out, forcing players to roll out of the ring to recover, surviving a round, and for being in the top position in the ring.

Kick Punch is played in a series of rounds which are divided into phases: 

Draw Phase, Fight 1 Phase, Fight 1 Resolve, Fight 2 Phase, Fight 2 Resolve, Power Gain, Roll Out Phase, Recovery Phase

DRAW PHASE:

Each player starts by drawing up to 6 cards which will make up your hand.

FIGHT 1 PHASE:

Each player will then place two cards face down in front of them to both fight the person in the position in front of them and defend against the person behind their position.

FIGHT 1 RESOLVE:

All players cards get flipped over from left to right at the same time and resolved one at a time.  Damage is calculated.

FIGHT 2 PHASE:

Repeat Fight 1 Phase but this time with only 1 card.

FIGHT 2 RESOLVE:

All players flip over and resolve the final card.  Damage is calculated.

POWER GAIN:

All players still in the ring gain power and the player in 1st place gets extra power based on how many empty spots there are.

ROLL OUT PHASE:

Players then decide if they want to stay in the ring for the next round or roll out to skip the next round and recover health.  All players below a player that rolls out then move up to the next position.  The player who made that player roll out gains power.

RECOVERY PHASE:

Any player that rolled out or who was out of the previous round then gains health.  Also any player who rolled out previously can choose to come back into the ring at this time.

This round process repeats until 1 player starts the round with 20 power.

Risks and challenges

This is the first project for Vorpal Entertainment but we have done extensive play testing, prototyping, talking to manufacturers, and research to bring to you a great product. We have tried to cover all possible bases but of course unforeseen problems may arise.

If new characters get added to the game then we will do some more play testing which could cause the shipping date to slip by about a month but we should be able to ship out as close to our specified date as possible.
