Heartcatchers is a two-player card game where players take turns "catching" stacks of cards based on the playing field and the hearts they hold in hand, to move them back and forth across the playing field. Players can also play Secrets that affect scoring. Once all the cards have been played, the Secrets are revealed and scores tallied!
This portable, fast-paced game is lightweight and easy to learn (only 20 cards and playable in under 10 minutes) and is a great way to break the ice with new friends.
In Heartcatchers, the hidden information of face-down Secrets adds a delightful level of complexity to the deceptively simple rock-paper-scissors mechanic. Players soon learn that deducing the psychology of their opponents is a must for coming out ahead!
We've had the opportunity to show Heartcatchers off to great people at places like Metatopia, Boston Festival of Indie Games, and Playcrafting. They liked what they saw—here are some of the honors we've received!
