Rookie Mage Games has announced today that its first game, Don't Get Stabbed!, has launched on Kickstarter. The game is available for $25 with a goal of $8,000 needed to fund production with multiple tiers of support are available. The campaign ends on April 25th.
Don't Get Stabbed! is a party card game where you get to kill your family and friends (for pretend). The game is inspired by slasher films from the '70s, ’80s, and '90s, but made lighthearted enough for everyone to enjoy.
One player gets to be the killer. The rest play as victims.
Everyone takes turns drawing cards. If a victim gets three STAB cards, they DIE! But they can use ACTION cards to avoid getting stabbed. And they can use COMBO cards for a chance at escaping.
But the killer has special powers. If the killer draws a STAB card, they can put it back in the deck wherever they want. And the killer can use ACTION and COMBO cards to thwart the victims’ attempts to stay alive.
The game plays for 3-5 players and only takes 15 minutes per round. It’s a quick and easy party game to play with friends and family. Don't Get Stabbed! is recommended for ages 18 and up due to humorous references to sex, alcohol, and violence.
“I’m really proud that Don't Get Stabbed! is finally ready to be presented to the world.” Founder Jordan McLaughlin said. “I’ve put a lot of work into developing a game that I think people will really enjoy, and it’s great that I get to start a business doing something I love.”
