Kickstarter Feature: ‘The Princess Bride: I Hate to Kill You’

princess bride dice game

Why are all the coolest games on Kickstarter? Ugh. Well, check out this amazingly looking game based on The Princess Bride! Brought to you by Games Salute (Keyflower, Pixel Lincoln), The Princess Bride: I Hate to Kill You is part of a “three box” set which features this and two other games based on the film. This particular games was designed by Jim Harmon, with art by Felicia Cano. According to the report, here is how the game plays out:


“The game recreates the sword duels from the movie, with players taking the role of either the man in Black, Inigo Montoya, Count Rugen, or Prince Humperdinck.  Each player stars with 6 dice and 10 cards. Each turn, both players roll dice and play a card which may modify the outcome. The player with the highest swords score wins a hit, and must remove one sword die from their active pool. There are cards that modify the dice pool, or opponent’s dice. The first player to land 5 hits wins the game.”


The game is for 2 players, ages 8 and up, and plays in 10 minutes. MSRP is set at $25.00. Right now, the Kickstarter has only 42 hours left in the campaign with only one tier to back – a $19 tier in which fulfillment is schedule for July of 2016. Sadly, there is no date for retail release. Hopefully, that will come soon after their fulfillment date. I cannot wait for this to come out. Id you love the movie, then you may love this as well.
