Deck of Justice

For a big section of my early childhood I played card games. I would’t say I grew up playing card games, as regular readers will be aware I spent most of my childhood, from about age 10 onward, on my Spectrum. But the rest of my family loves card games, so we had loads of them. I collected and played Top Trumps, I loved playing a game called Whot. My personal favourite, a game called Smuggle, saw players lying to fellow players in an attempt to sneak contraband past airport security – I was 8 when we got this and I though lying was the best thing ever! Card games were a big part of my early childhood.
So when I heard that a card game was in development which centred around 80s celebs having a big fight, you don’t need to get very far into the sales pitch before you would hear me shouting “I’M IN!”
The Deck of Justice is a ridiculously frantic, yet highly tactical, hand-drawn card game for 1-6 players. Players take turns striking one another (with fully loaded heroes, armored vehicles and bulging biceps) in a series of quick cowboy standoffs until there is only one survivor.
I am notoriously bad at explaining rules of games, to the point where even my own kids blank me when I get too enthused, so please excuse the lack of overview. Their Kickstarter video will explain it in a far more succinct way than I can:
For £20 you get the full core deck, printed on high quality card, along with access to a Print and Play version which you can download and print straight away.
Even better, if you just want the Print and Play version, the price is just £10.

(I was hoping to get a full review online this week, but real life seems to have a habit of not allowing enough time to do the fun things – sorry, I’ll do one as soon as I am able!)
