"I seduced a Naughty Necromancer by turning my friend into a frog and wearing some Pompous Pantaloons. Best game ever."  - Play Tester, Kyle

Creator and founder of Wits & Giggles Gaming, Cory Padia and extremely talented artist, Romain Marsaudon have teamed up to create an absolutely ridiculous and hilarious card game. You and your friends will play as the Bards trying to seduce the lovely patrons of a fantasy tavern in order to claim your rightful place as the most reputable lover in all the lands! Use cards like Lavish Lute or Fancy Feather Hat to increase your Bard's allure, or start a Ridiculous Rumor about your fellow Bards to make sure they aren't going home with anyone. 

Bard Party - Rule Book

Risks and challenges

This is Wits & Giggles Gaming's second Kickstarter and second game. It is definitely our most ambitious project. We hired an artist to illustrate all 75 cards + box art and kickstarter exclusive cards. This was not cheap, especially with such a talented artist such as Romain Marsaudon. On top of that, printing is never an inexpensive feat, and marketing such a game takes a hefty chunk of change as well. I of course would never have chased such a lofty dream if I didn't KNOW Bard Party was going to be worth it. People are going to love this game, and I am very excited to prove it.
