Hello BGG Community,
I would like to tell everyone about our new game we are crowdfunding on Kickstarter. We have been getting very positive feedback from our backers. Everyone hopes it will get funded. We had a strong holiday kickoff but still have a long way to go. One backer suggested I post it here and now I can see why, this is a great community. Anyway here is a summary of the game.
Here is a link to kickstarter
44 presidents go head to head in a card and dice battle. 1-2 players.
Rules Of War................
1-2 Players Ages 8+
Each player chooses their favorite die- Republican, Democrat or Independent (red, white or blue)
Shuffle the deck and deal each player 22 cards. -Do not look at them- Place them in a pile face down in front of you. Both players turn over the top card on their pile and battle. If your card wins the battle you place it on the bottom of your pile for future use and if your card loses you put it in a separate pile, this card is no longer playable. A player wins when they successfully defeat their opponents entire army.
Choose between 1 and 6 cards from the deck either by random or by choice and these will be your battle cards. Play through the deck to see how many presidents you can eliminate before you are taken out. Keep track of your score on score pad.
Rules Of Battle............
Each player rolls their die at the same time. The player who rolls the higher number gets the strike. The damage= difference in dice. Opponent then must subtract it from their battle card. The battle is over when one card loses all their hit points or an eagle is rolled.
Example- If player 1 rolls a (7) player and player 2 rolls a (1)......Then player 2 must subtract 6 from their card.
Battle Dice- 10 Sided- Numbered 2-9 with 2 symbols
Eagle- If you roll an eagle, you steal your players card and place it on the bottom of your pile.
Shield- If you roll a shield you defend your opponents attack and they must subtract their total roll from their battle card

Something has to be said when someone can take a classic game and add a unique spin on it and that is what Jesse has done with President Wars. I think the game mechanics are fantastic and the artwork looks impressive as well. On top of all that its educational and thats deserves plenty of credit on its own....take the time and support this project and help get it funded.
