Bif! Bam! Pow! The Card Game

This is a very rough outline for a card game I'm developing. It's my first real foray into game development after being a long time gamer and general nerd. I'm entering this idea into the Hasbro Gaming Lab contest. If selected, I'll be putting up an IndieGoGo campaign for it and we'll go from there.

Bif! Bam! Pow! is a fun social card game inspired by classic comic books and campy TV shows. Players take on the role of stalwart heroes or dastardly villains in a light-hearted battle of good and evil. Each player is randomly given a role, hero or villain – which they keep secret until they are ready to reveal themselves to the world! Through simple card mechanics, players build their heroes or villains, giving them powers, weaknesses and origins and use them to achieve their goals and defeat their opponents. For the heroes it might mean saving the the lady who just fell from the top of the building or stopping the bank robbery! For the villains it may mean making sure that you've secreted away your death ray plans or stolen the gold bouillon! As soon as someone is out of cards, the game ends and players find out who the SuperHero is, who the Arch-Nemesis is, and who has won the day!

The game takes roughly 20-30 minutes depending on the number of players. The game plays 2-6 people but can expand to accommodate more by combining sets of cards. Each game comes with 8 Role Cards, 60 Disaster! Cards and 300 Bif! Bam! Pow! Cards.
