Brea, CA — On January 26 2017, J.P. Fisher launched a Kickstarter campaign for FN BS, a micro card game based on the seven deadly sins and Truth, also known as Veritas. This 20 minute, 2-6 player game requires players to use strategy, deception, and perseverance to win.
“Sin players compete to survive by collecting resources, using their sin powers, and eliminating other players,” explains Ζack Onaga, one of the game’s artists, “Sin players must watch out for the Veritas player, who will try to convert them into fellow allies. The twist: players can lie about what sins they possess. A player literally calls ‘FN BS’ when he or she thinks someone is lying.”
Cards represent life in this game, so if a player loses all their cards they lose. On their turn, players can choose to work or invest to earn resources, use their resources to Nuke a player and take one of their cards, or use the power of a Sin card. Each deck has one Veritas card, and the player who picks up that card can no longer use Sin cards. Instead, they must try to win by converting all the remaining players to the Truth.
The seven deadly sins in this game are represented by cute animals. The artists have also designed two Kickstarter Exclusive variant decks: Chaos and Chibi. The team is excited to be working with Admagic, who helped create other popular crowdfunded card games like Cards Against Humanity and Exploding Kittens.
The game was originally more complicated with a board, character pieces, and over 50 cards. But after being inspired by trending micro card games like Love Letter, Coup, and One Night Ultimate Werewolves, the game evolved into a much simpler form with its own unique twist. After several play tests and surveys, the final game was complete. Now Fisher and his team have turned to the Kickstarter community to share this game with the world.
“At the end of the day, Zach and I are just two nerds with a dream to make a great game. So naturally Kickstarter became the best way for us to get this game out in the world and into your hands. We think FN BS can be something special, but we need you to make it a reality,” says Fisher, “Every bit helps in bringing this project to life so in whatever way you decide to support, know that we are extremely grateful to you for believing in us (we will love you forever).”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including a print and play copy of FN BS for $10, a physical copy of FN BS for $20, and more. Backers can also pledge $40 for a copy of the game and both 8-card variant sets or $100 for a copy of the game and a chance to design their own personal sin card to be used exclusively in their set of FN BS.
