I’m about to break the first rule of Fight Club: The Home Game, by talking about Fight Club: The Home Game. MONDO, the distributor of limited edition screen printed posters for your favorite classic and contemporary films, television shows and comics, along with vinyl movie soundtracks, VHS re-issues, toys, and apparel are gearing up to slide into the ring with a 2-player competitive deck-building card game based on David Fincher‘s cult classic film and the work of author Chuck Palahniuk.
For the game, players will choose to embody one side of a split personality competing for control of a single mind. By taking on the role of either The Narrator or Tyler Durden, you play a game of tug of war with dual-use cards available in a shared draw row. The Narrator side feeds the need to collect, gather, and nest, while the Tyler side enables destruction, mayhem, and ultimately letting go by hitting bottom on a shared tracker both players struggle to dominate.
Just like an IKEA catalog filled with useless shit, the game comes with an abundance of game materials, including over 140 cards (Basic, Sleep/Insomnia, Fight and Marla), a fold-out instruction poster, “Slide” tracker board and a Soap Tracker piece.
Designed by Luke Byers and Jay Shaw with Cover art by Matt Taylor, and Game art by Jay Shaw, Fight Club: The Home Game serves to remind players that what you own, ends up owning you, and that sometimes a decent reality check hails from a swift crack to the jaw.
Be sure to visit MONDO for more information, and be sure to keep your blackened eyes peeled for when the game becomes available in stores and online this September 2018.
