Complicated Board Game the Card Game is a simple card game about playing complicated board games. Try to best your friends as you place pieces, discover new rules, change the board, and occasionally realize you're playing an entirely different kind of game. In CBGtCG, we take the nonsense of cracking into a new board game alongside your friends and condense it into a competitive 15 minute game for 3-6 players.
The goal of the game is to be the first player to clear their Holdings of 5 random Piece cards. On a turn, each player has 2 Phase Points to spend which can be used to play Pieces on the Board or game mechanics from their hand (Rules, Board States, Events, and Win Conditions). Each Piece can be played on one other Piece in a rock-paper-scissors format. Hats are worn by Soldiers. Soldiers ride Sheep. Sheep are abducted by Spaceships. Spaceships obliterate Castles. And Castles, Hat. Board States dictate the locations that players may play their Pieces on the board. Rules add new regulations to the game that everyone must follow. Events are one-time actions that help you or hurt your friends. Win Conditions provide one player with a new, secret way to win the game.
