The Crinimals Now on Indiegogo!
“The Crinimals” is a light family card game that is currently running on IndieGoGo. With the Kickstarter hype we shouldn`t forget that not all creators have access to it and at the end of the day we want to support any good project regardless of its medium.
You are one of the tricky animals that made a successful heist. But who wants to share? Especially when the loot is so shiny! You should find evidence and send everyone else to jail. That sounds like a plan!
In the game you take the role of one out of the four available animal thieves, trying to keep all the loot for itself. To win the game you have to either be the last animal out of jail or get rid of all of your cards, getting away with the loot.
The basic game flow is pretty simple and fast-paced, reminding me of classic card games. On your turn you will play one of your cards. There are two types of cards in the game, Evidence and Action cards. The first come with a color and an icon on them and you can lay them on the table, creating a grid, by either placing a card adjacent to one of the same color or on top of another with the same symbol. This way you try to create a four-card chain of cards of the same color, these are enough evidence to send the player of that color to prison! A player that goes into prison still plays normally, affecting the game, and can even get out of jail if the chain of evidence is interrupted! The other type of cards, Actions, give you some cool abilities that change the tide of the game, like breaking a chain of evidence, drawing extra cards, changing hands or even identities!
A light family card game with beautiful cartoony art with some take-that elements. Make sure to check out its campaign on Indiegogo if that is right up your alley!
