Inspiration for a card game can come from anywhere, really. You might watch a tv show, see a movie, or read a comic and think, “I could make that into a card game.” You might see some sport and think, “I could make that into a card game, too.” But sometimes you see another game, even one that’s been around for quite a long time, and think, “I could make that into a card game, too.” That last one might get you some unexpected results. Such is the case with GG, a new strategy card game that takes Rock, Paper, Scissors to a different level.
Players start out by getting their deck of cards. These they play, face-down, in front of them in four piles that they chose (so you know your order of cards, though you’ll have to remember what you played, since you can’t peek later). All the players do this. Then, figure out who’s going to go first (they recommend a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors). On your turn, you flip over the top card from one of your piles and then flip over the top card from one of your opponent’s piles. If your card wins, the loser is discarded and you put your card back. You then get to play again. Continue along until your card loses, after which it switches to the next player. The goal is to eliminate stacks of your opponent’s cards. But more than just rock, paper, and scissors cards, there’s also strategy cards and other bonus cards that can turn things on their head.
The game is closing in on 3x funded with still 27 days left to go.
