Cobras Slithering onto Kickstarter Soon!

Cardboard Edison has announced that it is launching a Kickstarter campaign for its first publication, Cobras!


Cobras is a trick-taking game for 1-5 players. Chris & Suzanne Zinsli (Cardboard Edison) is working with Eric Alvarado (Mill City, On the Crab, Orbital) and together they have based the game on an anecdote called the “Cobra Effect”: With the village overrun by cobras, authorities put out a bounty to encourage people to get rid of the pests. Sensing opportunity, some enterprising villagers began breeding cobras for the reward money. When the authorities found out about the scheme, they canceled the bounty. With nothing to do with the cobras, the villagers released them, making the problem even worse than before!


As the greedy villagers, you’ll need to lose tricks to get cobras which can then be turned into points by winning tricks. The game hinges on a delicate balance of winning and losing. The game features cover art by Jeff Brown (Lora’s Contest) and graphic design by Keith Pishnery (Lanterns: The Emperor’s Gifts).

jessasm chatJess: It’s not many trick taking games that can claim to have a 1 player option. Cobras has piqued my interest on that account alone. If you want to take a look at the game, check out the Kickstarter on Monday, Oct. 17, 2016.
