Strangeville Smoke Weed Game Launch Postponed

Gang, a lot of us creator types make our living telling stories and entertaining our fans. As this crazy virus quarantine ratchets us down and puts many of us out of work, I’ve been watching fellow creators launch brand new comic book campaigns, new novels, pushing art commissions and much more as they fight to survive in the face of this unprecedented situation we all face together.

I don’t judge my creator friends for hustling up and trying to keep food in their mouths, but I’ve been thinking a lot about it and I can’t, in good conscience, spend the next month trying to sell the Strangeheads and Hack Minions a card game on IndieGoGo.

Do we need distraction and entertainment right now? Absolutely. Would a kick ass, funny ass, fun ass card game help keep the calm and stave off the cabin fever while we’re stuck in our homes? Absolutely.

But if you’re like me, and I know most of the Strangeheads and Hack Minions are, you’re working a busted ass job just barely getting by and right now, more than ever, your weak little resources are much better off stocking up on essential items and food to keep your families safe and your bellies full.

I cannot ask you to give me money right now.

The game is finished. It’s fucking amazing. Everyone who’s played it loves it and can’t wait to get a deck of their own to play with their friends. It’s 100% ready to go. All I have to do is launch.

So once we’re on the other side of Corona, everyone’s back to work, we’re caught up on our rent and car payments and all that, then I’ll feel comfortable going into huckster mode and yelling at you for a month to buy the fuck out of the best fucking collectible card game your ass has never played. STRANGEVILLE SMOKE WEED: The Card Game, coming for your buttholes soon, motherfucker!

For now, stay home and stay safe.

The 2020s: Strangeville Style

The 2010s are over, gang. Just like that. Another decade in the rear view. As 2009 became 2010, the Hack Movies crew was working furiously on what would turn out to be our final feature length film, NIXON AND HOGAN SMOKE CHRISTMAS.

After that, we took a wrong turn up our own asses and spent the better part of the ’10s writing some of the coolest bizarro fiction you’ll never hear of because toxic man-babies in that “scene” are more worried about looking pretty at the cool girls table than rewarding literary merit.

We finally pulled out of that proverbial skid late in the decade and I’m proud to say that we finished the ’10s writing and drawing the epic 3 issue, 120 page DEAD SHIT: THE TALISMAN OF TRANSMUTATION comic book which scored us two successful crowd funding campaigns on IndieGoGo and the biggest “pre-order” of my career.

It all comes back to Strangeville. Last year I wrote my year-end wrap up excited to launch the comic. This year I get to officially announce the next whacked out Strangeville project: STRANGEVILLE SMOKE WEED: The Card Game For Stoners.

This crazy shit is a 100+ card deck building game that pits ALL of the characters of Strangeville against one another as players duke it out for drug dealing supremacy on the streets of Strangeville.

I wrote it, developed it, play tested it and am currently in the process of drawing all of the brand new art for the cards. This game is INSANE! The more you play, the more combos you find and the crazier the action gets. Here’s just a quick example of how a couple of the cards work together.

Ole Steeve-O and Shaniqua there can both be sacrificed to summon the big D himself for less than he would cost on his own, giving you a big advantage on the streets as Satan is one of the most powerful characters in the game. Having him in play could easily win you the game.

And those are just 3 of the over 100 cards in this game! The combos are endless! No two games of SMOKE WEED will ever play the same!

So as we say goodbye to the 2010s, let’s all get ready to say hello to the 2020s and to STRANGEVILLE SMOKE WEED: The Card game hitting IndieGoGo with sweet stretch goal goodies just like the comic book! AND just like the comic book, the game will be PRINTED and READY TO SHIP before the campaign launches in March.

We’ve already shown you twice this year that our no-risk campaigns come with BIG rewards! Get ready to join us in March as we do it all over again!

I keep telling you, gang. We’re JUST getting started!
