by philhassey - Jam Entry

Goat-Nappers is a 3 player physical card game. You'll need to print out 3 full-color sheets and cut them up to play it! Tell me if you have fun :)


P.S. I drew the villains by hand without tracing. The goats I traced, they are my goats, after all!

This is a stroke of sheer brilliance. I salute you. Thanks for "goating" us on this weekend.

A Card-game! And it looks good. Rules are simple, cards are clean and afficient. Nice work!

Using the term "trump" is useless, though. People who know it can understand the rules without it, people who don't know the term are irritated and confused.

This is the only entry I've found this far that designed completely around goats! Great incorporation of the jam theme into this game and bonus points for designing around the "joke theme." Some instructions in a document on how to play would be nice! If you can do that I might be able to play with some of my game developer friends!

@Twisted - the instructions are on one of the cards :) The game is really simple! The download includes printable sheets, takes 3 pieces of paper and scissors.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
