What is Crazier Eights: Arcadia?

arcadia7 smHades, Helen of Troy, Amazon warriors, and many other characters from Greek mythology come to life with Crazier Eights: Arcadia!

We have been working on Crazier Eights: Arcadia since April 2020. There is no expectation for a release date at this time.

We usually released two new Crazier Eights games together with a main game and a smaller “expandalone.” Next time, we might be able to release Crazier Eights: Elysium & Crazier Eights Arcadia at the same time. They both continue the Greek Mythology theme started with Crazier Eights: Olympus. Continue reading

Crazier Eights: Avalon Spoiler (Updated 7/10/2017)

avalon cardsI have been working on an expansion for Crazier Eights: Camelot — Avalon. It will be 33 new cards that can be played by two players, or shuffled into the Camelot deck. It makes it so at least two more people can pay the Camelot game (six instead of four). If it is large enough, it will also be enough cards for a two or three player game.

Here are the cards: Continue reading

Avalon, a new expansion

caelia-faerie-queen3Update (6/19/17): See the card images here.

I finished a rough draft Avalon, a new 15-16 card expansion, based on the King Arthur stories. It is specifically made with Crazier Eights: Camelot in mind, but could be mixed with any version of Crazier Eights to have larger variety of cards. An expansion also increases the number of players the game handles by one, so Crazier Eights with the expansion mixed in is enough cards for five people to play the game. Continue reading

The Future of Crazier Eights

camelot cards6I am working on new versions of Crazier Eights in addition to expansions. New versions include at least fifty two unique cards, and new expansions include fifteen unique cards. Part of the appeal of Crazier Eights is the wide range of themes that can be used, similar to Fluxx, which is a good excuse for having new versions and expansions with strong themes. The next version will be Crazier Eights: Camelot, but there’s more versions I am also working on. Let’s take a look. Continue reading

Ideas for an Egyptian Expansion

day night2

This expansion will be considered for a stretch goal for the Crazier Eights: Camelot Kickstarter campaign this October 2016.

Right now I am calling it “Valley of the Nile.” The expansion is a collection for around fifteen cards that can be mixed with the Second Edition of the game. The cards could very well be used with the First Edition of the game as well, but two different manufacturers made the First Edition, so the card stock could be somewhat different in quality. Using opaque card sleeves might help avoid that issue.

There are a couple different ways I can make the expansion:

“Eternity” Expansion Set Ideas

expansion2parallel universe

This expansion will be considered for a stretch goal for the Crazier Eights: Camelot Kickstarter campaign this October 2016.

I am working on an expansion set for Crazier Eights with a space theme currently called “Eternity.” It will likely be a stretch goal for the Kickstarter campaign. The expansion is a set of around fifteen cards that are shuffled into the Second Edition of Crazier Eights. It is also possible to shuffle it into the First Edition, but the main intention behind it is to use it for the Second Edition and future editions of the game. The cards added to the deck is enough for the fifth player.

There are two main options for the expansion that I am considering using: Continue reading
