How Much Will the Game Cost?

Hey!

We are only one month away from the launch of our Kickstarter and our team is working like crazy to get the game and everything else ready for launch!

Whenever we back a Kickstarter one of the important things we look at is how much the game costs and what shipping will be like so here it is for Bulletproof!

Base Game + All Stretch Goals = $25

Shipping = $0, free shipping worldwide!

Customs Friendly Shipping = USA, EU, CA, AU

We hope that price + shipping are accessible for as many people as possible so that everyone can try our awesome little game!

Introducing …… The Senator!

Senator George Bushwick always dreamed of becoming a politician. He’s a natural charmer and loves all forms of attention. More than anything, he loves the power and influence that comes with being a senior senator in the state of Louisiana. His opponents claim that he has abused his position of power to enrich himself and most recently to provide cover for his brother-in, Big Frank.

Learn more about The Senator on September 12th when Bulletproof launches on Kickstarter

Bulletproof is a game for 2-5 players that blends tactics, strategy and luck as players compete to build criminal empires. Characters use corruption, bribes and many other secret weapons to interfere with other players, acquire territories and put money in their safe. Action cards can be used to finish jobs, steal territories, call in favors or stored in your safe to pay off debts. Territory cards and the sets that they form include special abilities that are activated by “Finish a Job” action cards. Make sure to visit the Black Market, it might have the territory or action card that you need to build out your empire and beat your rivals. Finishing a job allows players to create unique and clever combos for stealing territory, filling your safe or ruining another character’s plans. While building your empire be sure to fill in your safe with action cards or you might be forced to give up your territories.

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July!

We’ve made a ton of progress this weekend with the game during out playtesting sessions and we are happy to say that we’ve finalized the rules for the game. All that is left to do now is some final playtesting to balance abilities, this will be our work for the rest of July along with extensive blind playtesting.  We are also working through our video right now which will be done by the beginning of August. Here is a picture from our FBI card, hope you like it, we think it turned out perfect and it is one of our favorite illustrations!

Thanks for everyone’s support, we look forward to sharing more about our game as we get closer to the September 12th release.

Here is the current set of the rules – version 6.0 (hopefully final!)

While building your empire be sure to fill in your safe with action cards or you might be forced to give up your territories.

Setting up the Game
– Shuffle the two decks of cards, the Character deck and the Draw deck
– Each player takes 1 character card at random and can use that character’s special ability during the game
– Deal 5 cards to each player from the Draw deck, the remaining cards form the Draw pile
– Deal 4 cards into the center, these cards will form the Black Market from which each player can purchase cards using territory cards in front of them or money from their safe
– Cards remain hidden in a players hand and are not shown until played in front of each player or into discard pile
– The youngest player goes first, play commences clockwise

Winning Bulletproof
– The first player to build a criminal empire of 3 territory sets wins Bulletproof

Gameplay
– Each player’s turn has two main phases, the action phase and reload phase

– Action Phase
o In the action phase take up to two actions play a card, fill your safe, claim a territory or visit the Black Market

o Play a card
 Action cards let players steal money, finish jobs and take several other actions
 To play an action card take it out of your hand, follow the instructions written on the card and place it in the discard pile

o Fill your safe
 Several actions require players to pay one another with money from their safe so make sure that you have plenty saved up to settle your debts
 Only action cards can be put in your safe and they must be kept face down to keep the amount of wealth you have safe from prying eyes
 Action cards are valued based on the amount in the upper left hand corner of the card
 Once an action card has been placed in your safe it is permanently converted into money and can only be used by you or another player to settle debts

o Claim a territory
 Territories are played in front of each player to begin forming sets
 Each territory shows the total number of symbols needed to make a set as well as the different types of actions that can be taken when a Finish a Job card is played
 Territories cards can be transferred between different sets to make use of new cards and wild cards but doing this will cause you to use one of your 2 actions
 Territories can be used to pay debts but they can never be put in your safe

o Black Market
 A player may buy a card from the Black Market using money from their safe or one of the territories in front of them
 Exchange the money or territory for the card from the market and place it in your hand for future use

– Reload Phase
o Take one card from the Draw pile, if you have no cards in your hand take 5 cards

– Secret Weapons
o Every character has a secret weapon which can only be used during a player’s turn
o A character’s secret weapons can only be used once during a turn
o Some weapons have requirements such as paying money from their safe or other cards being played simultaneously
o If you get a new character using an arms deal card you can only use that character’s ability if it has not been already exhausted
o Watch out for the Assassin, he can remove your character and special ability from the game and force you to continue playing without their special abilities

– Cards can never go back into a player’s hand unless a player’s special ability allows this to happen
– Only pay other players with cards on the table
– Do not need give other players change and if you have nothing on the table in front of you then you do not need to pay anything

A Few Quick Updates on the Game, June’s contest and July’s contest

Hey Everyone, a few quick updates on the game, June’s contest and July’s contest!

We’re really excited to announce that this week we finished the graphic design for the game and got to playtest tonight with our first full art version of the game! It is amazing how much the art makes a difference from our previous version of the playtesting deck which was just text and some reference pictures. Everything is coming together really great and we can’t wait to share our project with everyone when it launches in September.

Tomorrow we will have two important announcements to share

1) The winner of our June contest for the Fenrir mini

AND

2) The contest for July! We are going to be giving away something that my wife really really wants to keep but we know that one of you all will enjoy it even more!

Thanks, we’ll be back in touch tomorrow!!!

Bulletproof – Work in Progress BGG Thread

This week we passed a very important milestone with our game as our artist delivered the final images. Now our graphic designer is putting the final touches on the cards so we can start sharing the print and play with everyone. I’m hoping to be able to share a print and play soon to give everyone a better idea of the game.

Here is an example of one of the awesome images she sent us this week. This is for the Peshawar territory card and it came out better than we had hoped!

 

Bulletproof – Work in Progress BGG Thread

Hi everyone! We wanted to share another update on the progress of our game. Design of the games mechanisms has been finalized and playtesting continues. We expect playtesting to be completed by mid July and we look forward to working with about 100 volunteers to help stream line the game and make it as good as it can be.

We are also progressing very well with both the Art and Graphic design. Final designs from our artist are expected to be delivered this week an our graphic designer has finished all the card designs. The only pieces remaining are the box, rules and a few other odds and ends for the kickstarter campaign.

We are hoping to be able to post a print and play for everyone to try out by the end of the month so stay tuned! Also, we updated the rules slightly, below is the latest version.
