Chicken Maker: Limited Card Game

Here we present another game designed by yours truly.

If you want to actually play the game I advise you to purchase a pack of Index cards and either attempt your own chicken drawings or paste these ones onto them.(I suggest drawing. It seems funner that way, and you will have a different style than your opponent even though you're no doubt both using Shades McCoolguy.) This game had been haphazardly balanced and play-tested so I suggest that you use the stats and effects listed on the cards here.

Card Explanation

Deck Construction Rules
You assemble your deck of 13 Chicken Maker cards from the Library. You may not use any cards not contained in the library nor can you use more of any given card than is contained in the library.

Play Rules
00) Each Player begins with a Power of 15 and draws five cards
01) If you have cards in your deck draw one card.
02) Place a Chicken face down. This chicken is your Lead.
03) Play any number of supporting Chicken cards, face down.
04) Reveal your Leads
05) At this point you may choose to reveal and activate your supporting Chicken cards.
06) The player whose Lead has the lower modified Attack Score subtracts the opponent's Lead's modified attack score from his Power. In the case of a draw neither side's Power is lowered. If this attack brings your Power below zero then you have lost.
07) Subtract the Cost Number of your Lead and any active support Chicken cards from your Power. If this act brings your Power below zero then you have lost. If both sides drop below zero then the one whose score is more negative loses.
08) Remove all cards from the field and discard them.
09) Return to the Setup Phase.

Rule Clarifications
  • If you do not play a chicken in 02 then you are treated as having a Lead with an attack of 0, and may still play supporting chickens to affect it.

It's what shades looks like, as of the end of his second trilogy.

The white one is stupid powerful in his story

But you really need both halves of him to do anything legit

I went with my remake version for the Cyborg Chicken

Yeah, that sound effect is definitely his attack name

This is meant to represent any chicken you like. As long as it doesn't have a specific card.

Direct Damage
Golden Chicken needs an army to be impressive

Any letter you want. Any one at all. 

I just noticed... KungFu Chicken is also KFC

How Presidential

He wins. Period

Zitty NotCoolguy. Not really all that weak despite his lack of cool.

You'd think the power of music would have a cool support effect

The armor does all the real work. Doesn't matter whose using it.

Miles and Miles of the style

It's totally a mermaid

Went with the original Stormcrow instead of my remake version

Emergency escape plan!


Oh yeah. And in case you mistakenly think I did this on a whim... CHALLENGE COMPLETE! Not bad for my 600th post, eh?

Depending on how this goes over I might put out some expansion sets at some point.


  1. :D My challenge was excepted. My friends *probably* are not going to except it.

  2. You have a chicken trading card game too! This is so great.

    I would love to have a chicken-drawing duel. I always want to draw more chickens! One type of drawing game I like to play is where you close your eyes, flip to a random page in the dictionary and put your finger down, then do it again and draw those words (for example, "overzealous horoscope", or something equally random and nonsensical). So maybe we could do something similar where we each choose a word, then we could combine them and draw the chicken version of it?

  3. that laserchicken resembles somebody hi-hi!
