SHOOTERZ Hockey Card Game

SHOOTERZ Hockey Card Game is a fast-paced game for 2 players ages 8+. This cool game comes in a sturdy box and makes a great stocking-stuffer! Plays in only 30 minutes.

SHOOTERZ is currently live on Kickstarter. Here is the link: SHOOTERZ

General gameplay: Deal 5 cards to each person. On your turn, pick 1 card from the deck and discard 1. Try to collect your team jerseys and shoot as much as you can! Each time through the deck is one period. (3 periods total). Includes OT and Shootout rules. And don’t spend too much time in the sin-bin! (penalty box)!

shooterz-newbox-72dpi

You try to collect 3 positions to shoot for a goal. You need a centre, winger and a defenceman. There are 3 areas to shoot on the goalie, marked by cool target symbols. Are you going to shoot top right or top left or go five-hole (between the legs)?

SHOOTING: The shooter and goalie secretly pick their cards and then flip over – head to head. HE SHOOTS, HE SCORES! (And so does SHE!)

Video: HOWTOSHOOT

There are even cool red lights to mark your score! So back SHOOTERZ on Kickstarter or order it directly from our website. Either way you will score with the hockey fanatic in your life if you pick up this game! Enjoy! R.

p.s. my wife and I love playing SHOOTERZ! It’s not just for kids. 🙂

The Old Ball Game

The Old Ball Game is live on Kickstarter: Link

What I love about this tabletop game for 2 is the pitching. We have 7 unique pitches and the deeper you go into the count, the more the confrontation between pitcher and batter changes from luck to knowledge – especially for the batter. It’s a real game of cat and mouse!

Everything is instant, also. There is no taking the result and checking charts of dice rolls. When that flaming, high and hard one hits the catcher’s mitt, and the batter swings – it is a Stee-rike!

There is also timely hitting, fielding – errors, bunts, steals, and throwing out runners. We even have special rules for the pitcher getting tired and for a pinch hitter!

Please check out the Kickstarter – you won’t be disappointed. R.

Math in Games

I love math! And I always did. I see math in many things and math is essential to games. In a game, such as Get Adler! Deduction Card Game the right amount of cards had to be figured out for Top-Secret Docs, Questions, Binoculars, Magnifying Glasses, Arrest Cards, Escape Cards, Pistols, Bombs and a Disguise. That’s a lot of cards.

After lots of playtesting we adjusted each card amount – to the point of perfection (I hope!). There is a reason why Adler will almost certainly get a Top-Secret card each game, which he needs to possess in order to win – yet in some games he might only have one or two and is in danger of ending the game with none. Tension! Just what we wanted.

I had a reviewer of Get Adler who recently said that Adler could possibly get no Top-Secret cards in the game. I was surprised by that comment because that has never happened in any game we or our backers/players have played. Of course, it’s always possible. But it’s highly improbable. Designers, for the most part, don’t leave these things to chance.

I head that Einstein once said, “God is not rolling the dice.” I don’t know if he said it for sure, but I love that statement. There is wonderful mathematics behind many things in creation. I also love many things about Sir Isaac Newton who was an incredible scientist and mathematician.

Do you see math in nature and life?

A Kickstarter in Summer?

A Kickstarter in summer? I really hope this is going to work! We launched Soccer Tactics WORLD board game on Kickstarter today – right in the middle of summer vacation. How many people are still at work or home or checking on Kickstarter? hmmm. We’ll find out soon enough. I’m thinking that most families and individuals only go away for 2 weeks, so we should be good. I’ll post a couple of photos below, so you can see this fantastic soccer game, and here is the Kickstarter link: SoccerTacticsWORLD
