I've come up with a new card game called Spar. It's a trick based card game revolving around fighting. I got the idea from wanting a faster paced Condottiere without a board and something with fewer cards and setup than Food Fight. Also, I wanted something that I could pick up and play with my wife at a restaurant if we were waiting for food (we often play things like SORRY! Revenge Card Game).

The game basically plays as such:
  • Players are given 9 cards
  • Players may exchange up to 3 of those cards
  • Players take turns playing a card from their hand: Attack, Block or Throw
  • After both players pass in a row or can no longer play cards, the round is over. The player with the highest number of Attack points wins the round
  • First player to 5 is the winner
Attacks have a number (1,2 or 3): Play these in front of yourself.

Block: Play this if the opponent has played an Attack. Remove the Attack.

Throw: Play this if the opponent has played a Block. Remove the Block. The Attack that the Block blocked stays in play.

There are also 2 more gameplay methods, one where you subtract points from health points instead of winning the trick and the other has you organizing your 9 cards, then turning them face down and playing it War style.

I'm also having a friend and professional artist do the artwork (Kelly Perry). I'm going to have the game available on print-on-demand from TheGameCrafter when the art is finalized.
