Manos: the Cards of Fate is a card game based on the 1966 cult classic, Manos: the Hands of Fate, which is often called "the worst movie ever made". While the film is certainly horrible, it's horrible in the best way imaginable, giving it a surreal and dreamlike quality that has endeared it to movie fans all over the world.
Manos chronicled the plight of a family of three who found themselves stranded at a lodge and terrorized by a creepy, jittery caretaker named Torgo and his sinister boss, the Master, as well as by the Master’s hellhound and his wives.
In this game, one player is the “Manos player” and the other is the “family player”. The family player controls Michael, Margaret and little Debbie, and must find a way to escape the lodge once and for all, while the Manos player seeks to capture them before that can happen.
Jackey Neyman Jones, who played Debbie in the film and penned a book titled “Growing Up with Manos: the Hands of Fate”, has been a great supporter of the project. “The varied projects inspired by Manos have always been fun for me. This one is especially interesting because, although it can't change the awfulness of the film, the family will finally have a chance to escape their 50 year fate.”
The game will contain over a hundred cards and will be available on DriveThruCards in December 2016. The price is TBA.
