About this project
Greetings Wastelanders, our project is exactly what we feel our favourite genre has needed for a long time. We love the Post-Apocalyptic genre: Games and movies alike, but neither of these are something you can participate in and enjoy with your friends without getting on the internet or on expensive gaming systems.
What if you could do battle with incredible mutated creatures and heroic wasteland figures with your friends where ever you go. Play Wastelanders on family holidays, on lunch at school, during breaks at work, anywhere you want. It is the ultimate Post-Apocalyptic pass time for you and your friends. This is what Wastelanders is all about, community.
To top it off, we have secured an amazing artist who is creating our beautiful illustrations, bringing the game to life. We intend to have this game be very community orientated and influenced by the fans. We are very open to ideas and would love to hear from our fellow Wastelanders on our Facebook page,Twitter account and website. We have put up a draft of our rules and encourage everyone to play test them and provide us with your thoughts and feedback. Is there any particular character you feel this game really needs or a rule you would love to see implemented? Let us know guys, this game is for the fans so get involved and make this dream a reality!
Wastelanders is a Post Apocalyptic Trading Card Game set in a dystopian future after a nuclear war all but destroyed the entire planet. It is all about being the strongest survivor and defeating your opponents in a fast paced and exciting turn based battle system.
The game will initially be comprised of Character, item, battlefield effect and base cards with the potential to add more content if stretch goals are reached. The 4 initial character classes are:
Item cards will be class specific and split into both attack and defence. Items will have to suit the character you are trying to attach it to. For example: A Honey Badger (Creature Class) cannot use a Riot Shield (Survivor and Wastelanders Class) as a defensive item.
Battlefield Effect cards are a luck of the draw, brutal reality of the wasteland. Battlefield Effect cards generally have detrimental effects on the players on the field ranging from 1-5 turns; effects range from a temporary prohibition of attacks to a targeted or general loss of Attack/Defence points. Individual cards will determine the effect and duration.
Base cards are what your characters are defending; they will provide bonuses to their corresponding class cards and will be assigned Defence points (600 for all base cards.) They come in Survivor, Creature, and MECH categories. Wastelanders can fight anywhere, but receive no bonuses from any base card.
Collect all the cards, build the ultimate pack, gather your companions and see who has the strongest Wastelanders!
We believe that this game is one of a kind in the genre. Our unique rules and gameplay create a fun and immersive experience. Our willingness to encompass all facets of the genre has allowed us not to be limited in the scope of our work, this enables us to bring the players a far broader idea base on which to build on. Our artist is 100% on board with the project and has been working tirelessly to bring our ideas to life. We have put in the effort to bring a high level of quality to the project that is already partially established. We want to show you that we are passionate about this game and we will put in the effort to make it right.
Attached is our Kickstarter Draft Rules. This is where we would love the communities thoughts and feedback on the game and how it is played.
At the bottom of our rules, there are additional game formats that can be played, this will keep the game fresh and interesting for those who are looking for a unique twist to a classic style.
All legitimate feedback will be seriously considered. So please get to the Facebook page and give us your ideas.

The funding goal we have set is the amount needed to produce the core product and ship them out to the backers. The funding will go towards our artist completing the initial 200 core illustrations, printing the cards and any other associated packaging to a quality that we know gamer's will expect, setting up an online store through our already live website and any other administrative costs and fee's involved in getting a game of this caliber off the ground.
Our timeline we have given ourselves is to have all decks produced and prepared for shipping by January 2016. We think this is a realistic goal and will make every effort to stick to our target.
Get your own Wastelanders shirt!
Have any illustration from the game put on a shirt by adding $20 to your pledge level.
This can be done for any art that is and will be released.
We have so many idea's that we would love to implement into our game. These goals listed are the big ticket goals, rest assured as the funding for the game rises, the quality of the product will continue to improve so don't miss out on this chance to be part of the next big thing in card games.
From card quality to sheer amount of cards and even the opportunities for other game related merchandise. We will strive to create the best game possible using all the resources we have available.
The cards themselves will determine a lot of the gameplay specifics so we were aware of the need to make these cards have a simple and easy to understand layout that lets players get on with the game and enjoy the great art on offer as each card is drawn.
The cards will be traditional sized at: 63mm x 88mm and printed on full colour 300g C2S Art Paper with a Gloss Varnish.
All 54 Card "Starter" decks will come with a full colour, Wastelanders branded Tuck Box. Retailing at around $25.
With 10 Card "Booster" packs, these will come with a full colour, Wastelanders branded Mini Tuck Box. Retailing at around $7.
All completed work as it is delivered to us, gets uploaded straight to our website.

Creating this fantastic game isn't easy, we've had some struggles along the way. The first real issue was finding an artist, after many a sample sketch from various artists we were lucky enough to find Federico. He has really brought this project to life by putting our idea's and dreams down on paper.
Finding a company who can print the cards at the quality we feel you guys deserve without breaking the bank has been an exercise in patience. We believe now we have found the right one, providing players a good balance of quality and affordability.
The most exciting part of this project by far is thinking up all the character's and item's. We have had plenty of fun with this. The fan's on our facebook page and website have also been instrumental here. I mean who wouldn't want the chance to have their idea's immortalized in something this cool.
We have a draft of the rules at this stage. This is another area where our fans are helping by providing feedback and play testing the game. They will be finalized by the time funding is completed.
We all know there can be problems when trying to create something like this, our artist could go on holiday, there might be delays with the printing of the cards or we could run into collaboration issues. This is why we have given ourselves until January 2016 to be completed and shipping orders around the world. We hope to be ready sooner but just in case something unforeseen comes along we are prepared for it.
Our biggest challenge is funding. We have already invested a substantial amount of money into the game to get to where we are today.
We know that this game will be incredible. Here is your chance, grab the opportunity to be apart of something huge!
