Fightlings is a hybrid of classic pair-matching games and modern card battler mechanics. The result is a unique living card game that rewards memory, planning, and adaptability.
It features tons of different Champions, Fightlings & Minions, a big bunch of tokens and loads of fun.

HOW IT IS PLAYED

Step 1: Deck Building
After choosing a faction, players build decks of 17 cards each. Decks must have one Champion pair, at least 2 Minion pairs, and enough Fightling and Effect cards to make a total of 17.

Step 2: Setting up the Board
Both decks are shuffled together and placed in a 5x7 formation, with a single wild card added to complete the 35-card board. 2 Minion Cards of each faction are turned face-up in the middle column.

Step 3: Uncovering Pairs
Players take turns uncovering cards three at a time in an attempts to match pairs to unlock new effects and combat powers. By uncovering a pair, the player is allowed to uncover an additional card.
Uncovered effects have an immediate influence on the game. Once a pair is matched, it goes to the corresponding player's Creature Zone, and the creature's ability is triggered. There are various abilities, ranging from direct damage, peeking, granting Victory Points, and shuffling the field to more sophisticated combo effects. The kinds of abilities and strategies you unlock depend on creature and faction.

Step 4: Fighting
The moment a player has creatures in his or her Creature Zone, he can start attacking his enemy player or their creatures. As every creature comes with Victory Points, which only count if the creature is still alive at the end of the match, defeating enemy creatures can be a path to defeating the opponent.

Step 5: Winning
The game ends when any of the following conditions are met:
A player loses all his or her health, a player has 15 Victory Point Tokens, or there are no cards left on the board. In our test matches, all three end conditions were frequently achievable, and offered valid strategies for different playstyles.

Thanks to the feedback of our backers, we've added new backer perks (the aptly named "You Asked For It" bundle) as well as a ton of information to our campaign. Now, once again, we're taking their feedback to heart.

How, exactly? Well, many of them suggested we offer more with our early stretch goals. We're very excited to announce, after a lot of back-and-forth communication with our manufacturers, that we're offering a new stretch goal: if we reach €13,000, the game will include a third faction (40+ cards) for all backers!

The new purple faction will feature creatures from the Clan of the Ancient, Clan of Phantoms, and Clan of the Grave. These clans use arcane and powerful spells to wake the dead, summon illusions, and turn the tide of battle.

The campaign has 3 more days to go, so check it out before it is to late:

Hi there, just a quick reminder that our Kickstarter campaign only runs for 12 more hours. Last chance to get Fightlings with all the Kickstarter exclusive goodies and maybe unlock one or two stretch goals. At 13.000€ we will add a third faction to the game, that are almost 50% more cards, for the same price!
