Lucky Duck Games will release the Fruit Ninja Tabletop Game Series
, which includes three family-friendly games that capture aspects of the popular mobile game.
Lucky Duck Games, publisher of Vikings Gone Wild
and Zombie Tsunami
, has partnered with Halfbrick, the creator of the Fruit Ninja
mobile game, to create three games: Fruit Ninja Card Master,
a deck building game; Fruit Ninja Slice & Dice
, a dice game; and Fruit Ninja Combo Party
, a party game.
Fruit Ninja Card Master
is a fast-paced deck building game designed by David Cicurel and Pierre Compain. The game is for 2 – 4 players, ages 10 and up, and plays in 30 minutes.
Fruit Ninja Slice & Dice
is a dice game of strategic fruit slashing designed by Koen Hendrix (Dragon Punch
). All players start with 5 dice, and each round is played in two phases. Phase one: all players roil their dice simultaneously (up to 3 times); Phase two: based on what fruits were rolled, players acquire the combo cards they want, as well as try to claim goal cards to score points. The game continues until the Combo Deck runs out. The game is for 2 – 4 players, ages 8 and up, and play sin 30 – 45 minutes.
Fruit Ninja Combo Party
is a party game designed by Julien Vergonjeanne (Vikings Gone Wild
) and Benjamin Ravet. Players start with 12 fruit cards, and each round everyone plays a fruit card. If two players have the same fruit, they have to try to grab the Tsuka Stick first. That player acquires an extra reward card. Then players decide if they want to score their current combo of fruit, or push their luck. (A perfect combo allows players to draw extra cards.) Players then pass their decks to the player on the left and a new round begins. The game ends when the players run out of cards to play. The game is for 3 - 6 players, ages 8 and up, and plays in 15 – 20 minutes.
The game series is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter and has already surpassed its $10,500 goal. The campaign runs through November 9. There is a retailer pledge level for $5.00.
Vincent Vergonjeanne, CEO and Founder of Lucky Duck Games, told ICv2 that a trade release is planned for Summer 2018. MSRP for the games has not been decided.
