Knuckle Sammich - Kobolds Ate My Card Game Up On Kickstarter

It's lunchtime and what could be better than a nice sammich? Well... two nice sammiches. Or more! When Kobolds get together to eat, it's not just the sammiches that might end up being eaten. You gotta make sure you don't get too close to King Torg's mouth (all hail King Torg!). And that's just the problem facing you in Knuckle Sammich, a new card game by 9th Level Games that's up on Kickstarter now.

The game is designed to be quick-playing and easy to teach and learn. On your turn, you have a card in your paw (since Kobolds don't have hands). That card tells you your meat and what you taste like (kobolds are, apparently, delicious when cooked). When it's your turn, you draw a card and then decide one of your two cards to play. Some cards have abilities when played. Others have abilities when they're on your plate (that is to say, in play). Others have special rules for when they're in your paw. Certain cards will give you a sammich. Others will give sammiches to King Torg (all hail King Torg!). Others let you eat other players (but don't worry, there's more kobolds to take their place). When the game ends, you see who got to eat the most sammiches. They win!

Artwork for the game was done by the always-talented John Kovalic (please don't cook and eat John Kovalic).

The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They're 2/3 of the way to their goal with still 29 days left on the clock.
