Lucky Duck Games, a board game publisher with a mission to transform popular online licenses into amazing tabletop experiences, and Halfbrick Studios, developer and publisher of Fruit Ninja, announced today that the Kickstarter for the Fruit Ninja tabletop game series, is now live. Lucky Duck Games is hoping to raise $10,000, which will go directly towards the production and manufacturing costs of the games. More information about the three games can be found on their Kickstarter campaign page. Just based on the popularity of Fruit Ninja, it's a bit of a sure thing that this Kickstarter is going to be fully backed.
The Fruit Ninja Tabletop Game Series consists of three wildly entertaining, family-friendly tabletop games. The creators wanted to make sure that the final products had to be unique in design, fun, accessible for any user, and quick to play. In order to create the dream Fruit Ninja game set, Lucky Duck Games collaborated with 50 of the most creative game designers in the board game industry. After reviewing 20 different prototypes, they selected three of the best games that were submitted:
Fruit Ninja – Card Master – A Fast-Paced Deck Building Game
Fruit Ninja – Slice & Dice – A Dice Game of Strategic Fruit Slashing
Fruit Ninja – Combo Party – An Energy Pack Party Game!
"The support we have received from Halfbrick has been amazing and now we're incredibly excited to be launching this Kickstarter campaign and get the last bit of support from our community to bring the unparalleled fun of the Fruit Ninja digital experience to a physical form shared at home with friends and family." says Lucky Duck Founder, Vincent Vergonjeanne.
With more than one billion downloads, Fruit Ninja's core value of accessibility and a positive sense of humor is the perfect match for a series of fun and family-gathering tabletop games. Halfbrick Studios, the creator of the mobile game, has been incredibly helpful in supporting Lucky Duck Games to bring this ambitious project to life.
Lucky Duck Games has also made a new video to coincide with the launch of the Kickstarter campaign, which you can find below.
The Fruit Ninja Tabletop Game Series is scheduled to release in August of 2018.
