One day in the land of Goatopia, a group of unknown heroes appeared through a blinding flash in the sky. They wore fancy armor and wielded powerful weapons. The Goatopians looked on as the outsiders clashed in battle with each other. These beings were at war, and they had brought the fight to the peaceful world of Goatopia. As the battles waged on, the Goatopians began to take sides and fight with the heroes. Striving for an end to the war, they became Battle Goats!
BattleGoats is a War style card game where players alternate turns in 1vs1 battle to determine a winner using the highest number value. The person with the last card in play wins. Rules are easy to pick up and games play in as little as 5-30 minutes for groups of 2-6 players.
We've been working on BattleGoats for the better part of a year, and have gone through extensive testing to ensure the game is as fun as we can make it. Over 1,000 test games from over 100 testers have given us great insight and feedback.
How to Play
Each player will get a random Hero and recruit an army of goats to battle with.
To build an army, all players draw 8 additional cards from the deck at random. Any cards not drawn are set aside and not used for that game.
With 9 cards in hand, each player lays them out face down in a 3x3 pattern to set up their battlefield.
The player that finishes laying their battlefield out the fastest gets to choose who attacks first.
Time to Battle!
To attack, select one of your cards, then choose any one of your opponent’s cards.
Both cards are flipped over and the higher number after any modifiers wins. Special abilities or modifiers are on the bottom of each card.
If the numbers are equal, both cards are defeated.
After the attack is finished, the losing card is discarded and the winning card flips back over, then it is the next players turn.
Santiago has been working on the artwork for months and we're down to only a few finishing touches and final characters.
Now it's time to produce the game. The funds from this campaign will allow us to take our print-n-play game to a real print run and get the amazing artwork put onto real card stock along with the highest quality polypropylene deck box we can get.
We've played cards for years and we know the importance of high quality cards and boxes, so rather than starting at a lower goal and hoping to upgrade via stretch goals, we are aiming high and putting everything we can in to make BattleGoats the best it can be. PrintNinja will be handling the printing of BattleGoats and has been working with us for months to ensure the quality of our game.
