IT'S TIME! the Icons have taken over Kickstarter. You can now back the game and get your own copy. Check out the campaign here: Icons on Kickstarter
Below is the official press release for the game:
A card game injected with the powers of pop culture icons, contains dice for a pinch of chaos and mutated from the DNA of beer pong.
Icons of Awesomeball is a unique game that aims to offer a high level of interaction between players. This element of tabletop games has always been our favorite part. Imagine a game that fits entirely into a 22 ounce cup and offers an entire night of fun for you and your friends. This compact, action filled, tabletop game is ready to be unleashed.
Now you have the opportunity to help bring Icons of Awesomeball to the world. For 2-10 players, the game comes with icon player cards and game cards. You will be able to play as a pop culture icon while selecting game cards that will allow you to score points with dice rolls, pong shots and battles against your opponents. Reach 30 points first and you become the Icon of your own Awesomeball game.
Artist Nic Gregory is the creator of Awesomeball. He is currently working in the Los Angeles animation industry as a Visual Development artist and used his experience to create the eye-catching and appealing characters of Awesomeball. Also a lifelong tabletop game enthusiast, Nic enjoyed the social aspect of getting together with friends, having a lot of laughs and not having to dwell over lengthy rule books. With all this in mind, Icons of Awesomeball is the result.
The Kickstarter campaign will not only offer the base game but will also allow backers to purchase the drinking game version, championship ring, jersey or championship belt. Plus two lucky backers can purchase the ultimate level and represent the entire human race. Become official icons, with your likeness drawn in the style of the Awesomeball Icons and your card will appear in every deck.
