This deck is under construction. Anyone is welcome to contribute - check the talk page to find out more.

Take on the role of a plumber in the Mushroom Kingdom. This means you are in charge of rescuing Princess Peach from Bowser and his Minions.

Special Rules

Locations are a type of Thing. Locations are played into the middle, on top of the current Location. Only the topmost Location is counted as in play and affects all players. No Things or Actions (or Thing abilities) can be played if there is no Location in play. Cards cannot affect Locations unless they specifically say otherwise.

Enemies are also a type of Thing. Enemies have no special rules, but some cards only affect enemies.

At the beginning of the game, the players should decide on how many Levels the game will last. The game begins with all players on Level 1. Any attempt to advance beyond the last Level advances to the last Level instead. Each player should keep track of their Level separately.

At the beginning of each players' turn, they should roll a six-sided die. The result is their Jump Check for that turn. The Jump Die refers to the number rolled on the die for your Jump Check before anything modifies it.

Equipment

You need something to keep track of which Level the game is on and a six-sided die. You will also need a few objects to act as counters.

Notes

My original idea for this deck was fairly similar to the one for the Monty Python and the Holy Grail deck. However, it's becoming quite different.

Other Thoughts

  • With as many enemies as there are, there should be more cards that are affected by the number/type of enemies you control
  • There should be more interaction between the cards (and not just the player/Jump Check)
  • The locations should all be fairly unique, but I don't have many good ideas at the moment
  • There should probably be more cards that affect the players' hands besides just discarding cards
  • There should be a couple of cards that let you draw cards faster
  • Should each player keep track of their own Level, or should there be a global Level?
    • Global Levels speed the game along, but make things more random (I could let you rescue the princess seven times, and then win on the last level)
      • Actually, global Levels mean that all the advances up to the last Level are basically meaningless
    • Seperate Levels would make the game a lot slower, but less random
      • For now, I'm going with seperate Levels, but this still raises some questions
