Ok, so you know that game Apples to Apples? It’s a riot, right? You get together with some friends, some funny scenarios get played out, and good times are had by all. Well, what if instead of just turning out a statement like “Nic Cage eats a pie” each round you end up with something more like “Beethoven and Joan of Ark Land an Airplane with a Dead Pilot”? Yeah. Enter Famous Missions creator Jason Tagmire:
FAMOUS MISSIONS is a multiplayer card game for 2-6 players. Suggested for ages 13 and up. Gameplay lasts 15-30 minutes. The game consists of 108 cards.
Do you remember when Gene Simmons, Mr. T, and Albert Einstein banded together to disarm that bomb?
That would have been awesome if it really happened.
In FAMOUS MISSIONS you can make it happen! Instead you might choose Mother Teresa, Hulk Hogan and Steve Irwin. Or Donald Trump, Joan of Arc and Danny DeVito. Choose whoever you want, and defend your choice.
The money is 100% being used for the production of this game. I’m going to order a run of the games in high quality printed two-piece boxes. As you know, it’s extremely expensive and basically impossible for one person to cover. At least it is for me… someone with a normal job, normal bills, a not so normal 3 year old daughter 🙂 and 1 year old twins. If I were to try this on my own, I’d have to take out a loan or put it on credit cards and pay for it for the rest of my life. I can’t afford do that. With the help of everyone on Kickstarter, we can release this game!! And afterwards, we can work on more games! Famous Missions is also very easily expandable, so I can continue making additional cards and we can be friends forever!
You hear that? Friends forever. You aren’t just getting an awesome party game, you’re getting a friend for life. That’s serious business. Oh, and make sure you stay after the credits of that video right up there for a special cameo and some sweet Chuck Norris action.
Creator: Jason Tagmire
The Sweet Spot: There are no less than ten $35 packages to choose from, all of which get you full copy of the game and a sweet, sweet mask of the character of your choice. I’m a Burt Reynolds man, myself. Retailers interested in carrying the finished game have the option of picking up packs of 10 or 24 copies for resale as well.
Funding Deadline: October 25th, 2011
More Info: Check out the full project page and keep an eye out for periodic updates that will preview all of the cards over the course of the funding campaign. You can also check out updates on some of Jason’s other projects at his main site, Championland.
