Cheapass Games is one of my favorite games publishers -- they stripped games down to their smallest, indivisible units (rules) and assume that you had enough dice and pawns and stuff to play. They've made great use of Kickstarter to launch some new games, and they've got a new one coming
Carol from Cheapass Games writes, "We've just launched our Kickstarter for Get Lucky! This is Cheapass Games' third Kickstarter campaign. Get Lucky is a brand new card game, based on our classic board game, Kill Doctor Lucky. Get Lucky will be smaller, faster, cheaper, and even more awesome than the original.
You should check out the Kickstarter campaign just to watch the video. If you've ever wondered what it looks like when six people try to kill Doctor Lucky in a sweet Victorian mansion, it looks exactly like this."
They're already funded. $20 gets you a set of cards.
Kill Doctor Lucky is our award-winning board game, originally released in 1996. It's the tale of a crazy old man and the collection of murderers who surround him. But he's a lucky old man, as his name suggests, and sometimes it can be hard to take him out!
Get Lucky is a card game based on the same idea. Each player controls two murderers, and Doctor Lucky is represented by a pawn that moves around the table. The turn moves with him, and Doctor Lucky's luck is represented by icons on the cards. When you're not trying to kill Doctor Lucky, you're often trying to save him from someone else! The game ends when Doctor Lucky's luck runs out, and someone finally manages to land the killing blow. It's fast, fun, and funny!
Game Details: Get Lucky will be packaged in a compact 2-piece box, very much like the one in the video. It has 72 cards and a single black pawn. The game is currently rated for 3-6 players, though we are also testing a version for 2 players that seems pretty good. Playing time is about 20 minutes. Age rating will be 12+.
Get Lucky, the Kill Doctor Lucky Card Game
On September 14, 1987, Garry B Trudeau ran the first Doonesbury strip that mentioned Donald Trump, in which his characters marvel that New York’s “loudest and most visible asshole” had floated a political trial balloon, hinting that he would run for president; thus began 30 years of marveling at, mocking, and skewering Der Drumpf, so rattling the Short-Fingered Vulgarian that he felt the need to issue a series of wounded denunciations. Now, just in time for the election, Trudeau has released a collection of his Trump-themed strips, Yuge: 30 Years of Doonesbury on Trump, just the thing to put the Republican nominee on tilt.
