Muffin Time: The Random Card Game is available to buy on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter.
On the official webpage for the project, Muffin Time is described as “a chaotic card game with more twists and turns than you can shake a spork at!”
“Battle your friends, family, and hyper-intelligent pets by drawing and playing from a deck of unique cards that’ll either help you, thwart others, or mix things up for the sheer hell of it!
“To win the game, you just need to start your turn with exactly 10 cards in your hand but if you think that’ll be easy, you’re wrong – wronger than a duck wearing shoes and that’s pretty damn wrong,” it reads.
Muffin Time, which has been created in collaboration with Big Potato Games, works with two to six players.
Since being announced by Tom earlier this evening, the card game has surpassed its £10,000 target.
Thank you all so much! We’re gonna keep play testing and fine-tuning the game right up until it goes to print. It’s gonna be a mad month of stretch goals, showing you the game in more detail, and asdfmovie12! I’m bloody terrified but we’re all so excited too. Thank you again <3
