    Card Game Kickstarter, Happening Now

    We've been excitedly playtesting and demoing the promo version of this game since the 2013 Green Ronin Summit and we're finally ready to announce the launch of the Kickstarter to fund this party game and its expansions. Pleas check out the Kickstarter page for more info.

    Hi Moira

    There are many games out there which have a similar theme or mechanic to them. I personally feel that Love 2 Hate doesn't play, flow or feel like Cards Against Humanity - those who have playtested it have supported this view (It was playtested in Ireland and the US, mostly for the last 2 years). There are obvious similarities in that it is sentence finishing game, but I see it more as a halfway house between games like Apples to Apples and not quite reaching the shock (?) value of CAH - though that would be entirely dependant on the players!!

    What I do know is that people seem to enjoy it and that I have fun playing it, so a fun game is a fun game either way

    Thanks

    Colm

    Just to put it out there, I have nothing against Love 2 Hate for being like Cards Against Humanity. I was just taking the low-hanging fruit, as it were. I like the idea of games like this. And now that I can actually possibly contribute to the game itself, well, my fiendish heart leaps Good luck on your venture!

    Thanks for your comment Moira! No problem at all - you're not the first to draw such a similarity And fruit is good for you! Thanks for the good luck wishes and I look forward to your fiendish input!

    I'm intrigued. I definitely see the similarities between this and Apples 2 Apples, CAH, and Say Anything, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Those are great games! My concern is the number of cards: A2A comes with 1k right out of the box, and CAH has a ton, too. With just a few hundred cards planned, I don't know if this has the shelf life of the others.

    Hi Shonuff!

    The original box set of Apples 2 Apples had 432 cards (108 green and 324 red - card print sheets run at 108 per sheet usually) and seemed to have good playability. This number of cars is what we hope to achieve if (when) we hit our stretch goals! As part of the playtesting, I made the same group sit for *hours* playing it (poor gamers!) a few times to check this particular issue and it seemed to work well Maybe they were just too nice... or afraid of me lol!

    Anyway, if the kickstarter goes *really* well, there may even be further expansions!!

    Ok, I didn't know that. I was going off the party box, which is what I have. How many people did you playtest with at a time? When I typically play A2A or CAH, we have between 6-10 people at a time.... Which really eats up cards.

    Thanks for the question shonuff. I play-tested it with groups from 3 to 10 players. You are right that 10 players can eat up the cards fast, but the hand size is only 5 (as opposed to 7, for example, in Apples to Apples) so that allows for increased longevity in larger games. Also, the love/ hate mechanic allows for increased variety where every starter can, in effect, have two lead-ins to the sentence finishers. We playtested in for over two years at cons, in groups and anywhere possible!

    Cheers

    Colm
