Many of us have imagined what it would be like if our toys came alive. Would they get along and play nice? Or would they go to war! In the case of Windup War... well, I guess the name sort of gives it away, how these toys choose to act whenever nobody else is around. It'd also explain why you sometimes would come back to your toys and find a piece busted for seemingly no reason... Anyway, Windup War is a new card game up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, players pick their faction of toys. They then pick which three toys they want to be part of the fight. From there, players will lay out and "program" what they want their toys to do that turn, placing 5 of their cards down in front of them. This is the "wind up" phase of things. After everyone has their moves set, everyone reveals what they're doing and the turn plays out depending on the moves they set. Last toys standing wins.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They're about 1/3 of the way to their goal with still 24 days left to go.
