It has been a whirlwind of activity for Sudden Death in the past two weeks. It's gone from an idea to what may end up being the final rules of play in that short amount of time, and we are now working on the artwork so that it can become real.
To that extent, Inspired Press is now working with +Laura Hamilton to provide the artwork and hopefully everyone else will love what she's doing as much as we do. Once we have the first batch of images we plan to use Kickstarter to fund the rest of the artwork for Sudden Death:Ninja Attack and get a finished version into people's hands and so that Laura can get paid what she's worth for her work.
But before we can do that we need more people to get the opportunity to play the game themselves, so we have a basic Print & Play PDF ready to go. This PnP version is low on art but contains all the rules and cards needed to play.
If you are reading about this for the first time, Sudden Death: Ninja Attack is a game for 2 players that uses a 25 card deck to simulate a battle between two ninja who encounter each other in a bamboo forest. With a plethora of weapons, traps and cunning tactics you vie to be the last ninja standing. The rules are simple and once you've printed the cards, you can be up and playing in minutes.
If that sounds interesting then check out the PnP PDF, print it out and give it a try. Then after you've played a few rounds, let us know how you feel by commenting here or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
