Upcoming Ganster Card Game "Slingin'" Sketches!

Dear Blog,

Here are some more Sketches for a card game I'm co-producing with a gentleman by the name of Richard Hart....

...So far, a creative and thorough game designer, and a wonderful person to work with!

Richard has designed Slingin' -a Drug-War-Gangster-Hip-Hop style card game- with an easy to understand, yet incredibly deep and immersive gameplay style. 

The game comes ready to pick up and play as one "Full" game deck comprised of several smaller game decks, like:

Uptown and Downtown Cards with cards designed around
           Weapons (From Baseball bats to Shotguns),
           "Whips"(Sexy Cars),
           And all manner of crazy characters from Cops and Lawyers
           to Shorties and O.G.'s (Girlfriends and Original Gangstas)!

And of course there'll be

"Go to Jail" style cards and

Background Cards for playable characters, each with their own unique stats

...Just to name a few!

You start with a character and draw cards from the decks, attempting to gain more money, rep, smarts, and dead bodies than your enemies...drawing a new character from the backgrounds if you're killed (and you most likely will be!

Though Slingin' will deal with adult themes and contain graphic content, it's still intended to do so with a tongue-in-cheek approach, parodizing the culture rather than glorifying it.

Of course, that isn't to say it isn't going to have awesome art and gameplay!

Here are a few sketches of some card art so far...

These (above) are the Victory Cards - Won at the end of the game for the Most Bodies, Rep, and Money, respectively...
We've since decided that the lady friend in "Run This Town" will now be "toned down" a little and will share centre with the her male counterpart, as we want to encourage female gamers to play and win just as much as male gamers!

That's all for now, only another 120 or so more card designs to go... And then to clean and colour them!

But it'll all be worth it, cause this game is gonna to be Off The Heezy!

Stay tuned for more updates and our upcoming Kickstarer Campaign! (Start savin' up yer nickles! :) )

Take care till next time & don't forget to leave a comment!

We'd love to know what you think of Slingin' so far!
