Too Many Turtles: The Card Game
Help save endangered sea turtles around the world? Too Many Turtles is a tactical point builder card game in which two players compete over the course of up to 3 rounds to build the biggest army of turtles that they are able to gather. The player with the most points at the end of the round wins and the game goes to the first player to win 2 out of 3 rounds. On the other side, you have an army of daredevil turtles being controlled by humans trying to stop turtron from saving the world. Wielding terrible effect cards like Debilitating Pollution and Plastic, they will stop at nothing to keep the valiant hero Turtron from cleaning the environment and helping the turtle population to reassert itself. Thanks to our amazing partners at SEE Turtles, you’ll be able to save turtles no matter which deck you play! In fact, we will pledge to save at least 50 turtles for every person who backs our game. In other words, your figurative turtle saving antics can literally save endangered sea turtles in real life.
Now some info about real world turtle problems. Turtle Foundation. The Turtle Foundation is a European-based conservation organization dedicated to educating people on the looting of sea turtle nesting grounds across the world. With representation in Germany, Switzerland, Leichtenstein, the United States, and Indonesia, the Turtle Foundation is one of the leaders on our list in educating and spreading awareness on turtles.
As a rule, you are only allowed to move one turtle, one row per turn. Sorry, we didn’t make the rules! Well, actually we did, but turtles are notoriously slow. That’s a rule we didn’t make. Have no fear though, there are ways you can ensure your turtles make it to the top of your field for maximum points! The first way you may be able to move more is if your turtle has a specific effect that adjusts movement. Turtle Cards including Abnormally Speedy Sid (Pictured Right, Can be summoned into the middle row), and The Amputurtle (Can move twice in one turn), can make their way to the top faster. Other cards such as Hubert the Penta Island Tortoise can’t be moved under their own power.Discover a few more info at Trei Amici Games.
From the guys who played Cards Against Humanity and Exploding Kittens comes a new game, starring some of the slowest animals on the planet; but things get moving pretty quickly! Players will take turns playing turtles and moving them across the field as quickly as possible, dodging all of the wild effects that their opponent can throw at them. Sometimes the effects are very real, like discarded Plastic or Debilitating Pollution, sometimes they’re as sudden as Shell Death!
When we started this journey, we didn’t realize that 129 out of 300 species of turtles on this planet are considered either Vulnerable, Endangered or Critically Endangered. We didn’t realize that 6 out of 7 species of Sea Turtles are listed as Threatened or Endangered due in large part to human activity. We didn’t realize that as a society, we throw away 14 billion lbs of trash every year, and that 80% of plastic waste in our oceans came from inland sources. We didn’t realize and so we didn’t do anything. Now we realize what is happening and we’ve taken it as our responsibility to do something before Sea Turtles go extinct and we, as a species, end up going past the point of no return.
