From the campaign:
Imagine if you could embody a hero character with the power to challenge or otherwise embarrass your friends. But be careful, for those same friends wield powerful item cards that threaten to change the game at any moment!
Now combine this with a leveling system to keep it competitive and a damage system to make it vindictive and this is BaRPiG - The unholy result of a one night stand between card-based role-playing games and a mostly ridiculous party. This seriously fun and highly portable game is perfect for anyone, anywhere and everywhere.
Oh, and there will be pigs...
The Kickstarter is up and running now. It's set to go for another 31 days.
