Kartoffelkrieg is a family friendly light war game that uses real potatoes that players will equip with various parts and weapons! It can be played virtually anywhere with a flat surface.

The game is started with players selecting a part board for to construct their potatoes in preparation for battle.  Each player's set up will be different allowing for an asymmetric experience.  They can choose from treads, legs, shields, power supplies, guns, cannons, and other weapons with various abilities.  The parts will actually be inserted and added to the potatoes. Finally they will set their boards to maximum power and zero damage.   

Once players have completed the construction of their potatoes of war, the frying can begin!  Opponents will take turns performing various actions with the parts they selected.  These actions have different power requirements, ranges, abilities, accuracy, and damage that it can give or take. Some parts require dice rolling to determine the hit location and damage amount. Players can continue using their parts for various actions, until their power reaches zero. At that point, their turn is over. Their power will reset on the subsequent turn.

The parts will take damage during that game with the possibility of it being destroyed.  The pieces are then removed from the potato and given to the player who eliminated it as a victory point.  The player who lost the piece makes the change on their player board.  In future turns, if that section takes damage it goes to the potato itself.  

When any one person reaches maximum damage on their player board, the game ends immediately. The winner is the person who destroyed the most parts and has the most victory points.

Kartoffelkrieg is on is on KICKSTARTER between now and May 3, 2018 and has a funding goal of $19,000.
