Arcane Bakery Clash is coming to Kickstarter! Buttonshy Games will be producing a deluxe version of my game about Dueling Bakery Wizards. It features 100% brand new, full colour art, revised and streamlined mechanics, and nine more cards. Follow them on Twitterfor updates!

It's been a long time coming. You and a particular co-worker at the Arcane Bakery simply cannot work together anymore. In a moment of frustration, you challenge them to a duel: After close, no holds barred. The loser resigns. And cleans up the mess.

Arcane Bakery Duel is a tiny card game for two players, with a memory-based timed combat mechanic. Put recipes in the oven, and take them out at the right time to confuse, steal from, and cripple your opponent, while building up your own strength.

Defend yourself with a Impenetrable Fondant Field or a Toffeeskin potion. Send razor-sharp Cookie Shards flying at your opponent, or slow them down with a frosty Cone of Ice Cream.

Unfortunately if you mess up your timing, the whole batch could wind up exploding in your face.

This game was created for the 2017 9-Card Nanogame contest on BoardGameGeek, and, while playable, is not quite "finished". Any feedback you can give would be very appreciated.

All you need to play is the nine cards in the PDF, eight D6s and a Gingerbread Person (Or a meeple, if you want something less... perishable)
