Blank is the fast and fun interactive card game you customise with every win! As you play, you will create new rules and card effects, making your copy of Blank totally unique.
Beginning with a hand of seven cards, players must get rid of all of their cards by playing matching colours and numbers to a central pile. There are also three randomly chosen Rule Cards each game. These rules must also be followed. Some Game Cards also have effects if played on top of the discard pile. Some Game Cards also have effects that need to followed if the card is played to the top of the discard pile! The first player to have no cards in their hand - even if it isn’t their turn - wins the game and gets to create a brand new Rule Card or customise a Game Card, making their mark and changing the game forever!
Blank initially offers players of all ages and skill level an easy-to-learn, quick-to-play game experience, but quickly evolves into an understandable game design kit. By creating new rules and game card effects, players will quickly see how the decisions they make and the text they write can change and push the game in different directions. Someone may even create a new rule that negates one of your favourites - what kind of ideas can you come up with that means it will be useful again? Blank can become whatever players want it to be - the focus can switch to a trivia style game, something more dexterity driven, or even a full-on party game. All it takes is a splash of imagination and the creation of a handful of new cards!
Why is this a Game with HEART?
The combination of accessible gameplay and the opportunity for creative expression meld together to ensure that Blank is a true Hub game. The opportunity to take the game in whatever direction the players desire means that no two copies will ever be alike even after a single game. It’s this incredible opportunity for diverse rulesets that we wanted to foster with Blank. The game also lends itself to the building of a community, with players around the world sharing their card creations, refining those of others and adding them to their own decks. We tried to make Blank visually accessible by using iconic suits as well as colour to differentiate the cards. This will help when playing in low light conditions and assist players who are colour-blind to enjoy the game.
