We’ve just added some brave new Warrior cards! If you back Story War at the Deluxe Pack level you’ll get these eight officially licensed Bravest Warriors cards!
Story War is a storytelling party game where players take on the role of fictional characters and then try to convince another player acting as a judge that their characters would win in a fight against their opponent’s characters. We started out with that classic “who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman” conversation and we kept developing the cards and playtesting the rules until we came up with this really fun game.
But obviously we can’t make a game about Batman and Superman without DC Comics’ permission! So we had to start out with public domain characters like Medusa and King Midas. One of the ideas behind Story War is that we’d build the game on public domain characters and then slowly introduce more licensed character expansions over time.
So we hope Story War will slowly grow into something like the card game version of Super Smash Brothers. And luckily for us, everyone at Cartoon Hangover is super cool and they gave us permission to make these eight new Bravest Warriors cards, which represent our first major step in that Smash-like direction!
Bravest Warriors is a great franchise to play Story War with because all of these adorable characters come with their own set of super powers. And if you want to learn the nuances of the kinds of stories you can tell with each card, all you have to do is watch the Bravest Warriors web series on YouTube!
All Story War cards are printed with a common card back, so you could easily shuffle the Bravest Warriors into your Story War deck and take them out if the people you’re playing with aren’t familiar with the show.
These eight cards are exclusively available as a Kickstarter bonus! Trying to get these cards after the campaign ends would be like trying to make oatmeal cry. So if you want to get these Bravest Warriors cards you’ll have to go back Story War on Kickstarter at the Deluxe Pack level!
