Trei Amici Games presents Too Many Turtles: The Card Game? Too Many Turtles is a tactical board card game in which two players fight over the course of up to 3 rounds to build the most valuable army of turtles that they are able to gather. The player with the highest amount of points at the end of the round wins and the game goes to the first player to win 2 out of 3 rounds. On the other side, you have an army of daredevil turtles being controlled by humans trying to stop turtron from saving the world. Wielding terrible effect cards like Debilitating Pollution and Plastic, they will stop at nothing to keep the valiant hero Turtron from cleaning the environment and helping the turtle population to reassert itself. Thanks to our amazing partners at SEE Turtles, you’ll be able to save turtles no matter which deck you play! In fact, we will pledge to save at least 50 turtles for every person who backs our game. In other words, your figurative turtle saving antics can literally save endangered sea turtles in real life.
Now a little info about real world turtle issues. WildAid. WildAid is a large humanitarian nonprofit organization dedicated to helping all animals that are threatened by humans on a large scale. Their work with turtles is focused very directly on sea turtles, where 6 out of 7 species are in critical danger of extinction in the near future. Wild Aid has been working very closely with several government agencies in China to reduce the toll taken on turtle populations from Chinese consumers who use sea turtles for jewelry, instruments, and homeopathic medicines.
Effect cards affect turtles, some even infect, like The T-Virus. Turtles in our game don’t attack other turtles. We don’t advocate for turtle on turtle violence. We do, however, allow for a series of wacky, and sometimes serious effect cards to increase competitive gameplay. As it stands, we have 4 different types of Effect Cards in the game: Add/Subtract HP from turtles – These cards can help you edge out your opponent when the round ends and it’s time to calculate scores. Remove Turtles from play – These cards (Such as House Fire pictured far left) can remove turtles from the field of play, keeping your opponent stuck in place.Find a few more info at Trei Amici Games.
Counter Cards – Counter cards can be used to counter or react to effects cards played against you (One great example is Shell To Pay, pictured right). These cards can be extremely helpful for defending your turtle army. Turtle Movement/Ownership – As mentioned above, certain effects cards can affect turtle movement. Additionally, certain effects cards can allow you to locate and move cards in your deck or pond or even steal turtles from your opponents side of the field.
The Impact: Luckily for all of you amazing people reading this, the three of us aren’t quite smart enough to believe we can’t change the world. With your help though, we might be smart enough to pull it off! We chose SEE Turtles as our Non-Profit Partner because they work around the world to defend turtle hatchlings from danger so they can thrive. We need to take action before Sea Turtles go extinct. So, for every pack we sell, we pledge to save (at least) 50 hatchlings with the help of SEE Turtles. Once we realized the danger posed to turtle populations worldwide by human activity, we realized it was our responsibility to do something to help. We believe a game can change the world and we’re going to prove it! Discover a few extra details on www.treiamicigames.com.
