Your Team My Team card game up on Kickstarter

Spellbook Entertainment has started up a Kickstarter in order to fund their new single-deck card game Your Team My Team.

From the campaign:

Each character has “stats” in different categories to measure their capabilities in different skill areas. Some characters may not have stats in a specific category, and others may have almost all of them, but just not as skilled. Stats are measured on a 1-5 scale.

The Stat categories are: IQ, Creativity, Athleticism, Popularity, and Eating. (For the purpose of keeping things simple, some definitions are stretched to cover aspects – such as Creativity counts towards both the ability to fix a computer, and painting a picture; while IQ would be more of “get an A on a math test”)

Scenarios have stat categories listed on their cards, below what the task is. Whichever is listed first, is a higher priority than the ones below.

    This looks awful. I am trying to think of someone I know who wouldn’t feel embarrassed playing it.

    Apart from me not liking “Top Trumps”-style games there are at least two things that make me stay away from this.

    In the risks and challenges section they say they are mostly done and just waiting for the art, but then go on saying they still need to playtest.
    I’m sorry but if you still need to playtest your game you are very very far from being done. In addition one month sceduled for playtesting is very little time and I hate the “We have an idea for a game, let’s collect the money first and later see if we can make it work, but tell backers we are done”-attitude this displays.

    And international shipping added as a stretch goal? I completely understand campaigns shipping US only due to the huge hassle that is international shipping. But this feels like they just can’t be bothered to find out the costs right now (and yes, I do know that setting a fair international shipping is difficult on Kickstarter as you need to factor in the fees and that the shipping money does not go into production and a few other things). But if they can’t be bothered to do something for their campaign why should I bother to back?

    I’m not going to comment on the specifics of this game, but is this really “table top gaming”?!

    Some people might be into games like this, but this is certainly not the sort of thing I’ve got TGN bookmarked for.

    • It’s a single-deck card game (a-la Munchkin or Killer Bunnies), and we do those sorts of things (it says so in our FAQ). So, it fits.

        For me, it’s just more of a skyward scream of “WHY!!?” Not why is it here, but why does it exist? How could this happen?

    This is beyond tacky. Is this developed in part by Larry Flynt or Ron Jeremy?

      It looks more like cuddling with Justin Beiber through a marathon of Total Drama Island while wearing that head brace contraption from Clockwork Orange.
