Well, the Monday after Easter seems a good enough time to tell you about Antichrist, a new horror card game that’s up on Kickstarter now. Build up your hand of twisted and demented artifacts in order to summon demons and become the true Antichrist.
Despite the somewhat gory skin covering the game (pun intended), it’s actually a rather clever Poker-style bidding game. Players get a hand of cards and four more cards are placed face-up in the center. Players all play a card face-down. This is their bidding card in order to get one of the cards from the center. The cards are then flipped and order figured out. Players pick their card/cards from the center, however, they must then place their bidding card into the center. So other people can then grab your card if they so want.
When the deck of cards runs out, players reveal their hands. The one with the best hand is the winner.
The campaign is up on Kickstarter now with still 29 days left to go.
