Drumroll, please… It’s here! Pumpkin Eater has finally released. I cannot begin to tell you how much of a dream come true this is for me.
The game is supposed to be a mix of classic card games like Uno, but with a bit of bluffing similar to what you see in games like BS and Poker.
This first game is very simple. Every player wants to avoid getting the Pumpkins. Pumpkins are bad! (This probably stems from the fact that I hate pumpkins in general) Any time a player ends their turn with 3 Pumpkins, they lose the game, and every other player gets another Pumpkin. This is because I find it boring to wait for others to finish a game when I’ve been eliminated, so this rule should hopefully make the game move quite quickly after this occurs.
Players can give each other Pumpkins, or remove Pumpkins from their piles with special Face Up cards. These cards are sometimes benign and beneficial only to the player who’s using them. But other times, these cards have devastating effects that can change the whole game in an instant!
If you play Pumpkin Eater and you think of a rule that would make it more fun, I highly encourage you to try it out! I love hearing feedback, and if you email (email address here), I will take what you say and consider putting it in a future edition of the game (with a special thank you if I use your idea, of course!).
The same goes for card/ability ideas. Play whatever is the most fun for you, and if you have alternate ideas, post them on our facebook page- maybe other players will love it too!
And after playing, I really hope you’ll leave a review! Don’t worry about hurting my feelings, I know not every player is going to love this game. But the more feedback I get, the better I’ll get at making these!
And lastly, if you play the game and feel like you want to participate in making games with me, I’m always open to entertain the idea. Email me and we can talk about that possibility!
