Do you slap down a robot, alien, or cloning machine? Picture a badass version of UNO, where zombies and fire-breathing dinosaurs battle to help you get rid of all the cards. Monster Fight: The Card Game is a vision created by local artist Matthew Buchholz of Alternate Histories, best known for his prints of monsters Photoshopped into historical scenes. (In 2013, he also created a City Paper ArtBox, still on display on Boulevard of the Allies.)
Want to make the game a reality? Make a pledge on Kickstarter by Fri., June 22. If the $25,000 goal is met, the game will ship in September. (As of press time, it was 10 percent funded.) Backers can choose from rewards including T-shirts and a hand-screened poster of the game's artwork.
Did we mention the monsters are freaking adorable? All of the game's colorful cards were illustrated by everyday balloons print shop. (Fun fact: everyday balloons' Chris Bencivenga and Becki Hollen also created a City Paper ArtBox in 2015.)
