Game Salute will release a trio of card games based on The Princess Bride: A Battle of Wits, As You Wish, and Miracle Pill, in the second quarter 2015. The games are currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.
Designed by Matthew O’Malley, The Princess Bride: A Battle of Wits is a deduction and bluffing game. A row of goblets sits in the middle of the table, and will be filled with wine or poison. Players bid on which goblet they will drink from at the end of the game, and choose to put either wine or poison in each goblet. When players drink from a goblet, if there is more wine than poison, they survive. If there is more poison than wine, the player falls prey to the Sicilian, and is eliminated. Those who survive, win.
The box contains: 70 Character Wine/Poison cards, 12 Sicilian Wine/Poison cards, 10 Character cards, 10 Goblet cards, and a time card. The game is for 2-10 players, ages 10 and up, and plays in 15 minutes. MSRP is $25.00.
The box contains 75 Quest cards and 10 Character cards. The game is for 2-6 players, ages 10 and up, and plays in 20 minutes. MSRP is $25.00.
The box contains 72 cards: 12 Red, 11 Rainbow, 11 Orange, 12 Yellow, 10 Green, 10 Blue, 6 Black. The game is for 2 -6 Players, ages 10 and up, and plays in 10-15 minutes. MSRP is $25.00.
Game Salute began releasing The Princess Bride licensed games in 2013 (see "'Princess Bride' Games"). Toy Vault also has a license to produce merchandise and games, and plans to release The Princess Bride-opoly in early 2015 (see "'Princess Bride-opoly'").
The Kickstarter has raised $7,299 from 165 backers ($44.24/backer average), well over its modest $100 goal, and runs until November 25th.
