Version Updates


Due to techincal difficulties, we have been unable to access our website for some time. During this time, we have been posting our exciting updates on our Facebook page. Stay tuned for more exciting updates and news!

Part of the fun in Karacterz is when all the cards you play on the table create a robust, epic fighter! To help keep track of their cards (and the rules!) many have praised our unique placement mat design. Instead of one big sheet that is difficult to keep flat, we split up the playing area into several smaller sections on two pages.

The original placement mats had a page that needed to be cut up. The advantage of this page is the ability to arrange the small sections to fit your game play style. You can check them out (and print!) them here. Since they are also designed print with as little ink as possible, they are not the most attractive placement mats.

That is why we designed our very special Premium Placement Mats! The premium mats are much better than the low-ink mats because:

  1. You don’t need to cut them up! The page is re-organized to fit and label every card you play.
  2. Features some of the best artwork in Karacterz!
  3. They are already printed! No need to do it yourself.

Don’t believe us? Check them out for yourself:

The last picture above shows the amazing artwork featured in the back of the Premium Placement Mats.

Here is what they look like when you build your epic fighter:

We can’t wait to hear about your experiences with these amazing Premium Placement Mats!


As we have previously announced on Facebook, we have uploaded a demonstration of Karacterz, showcasing the rules and the flow of gameplay.


If you would like to watch the demonstration in one video, watch the video below!


If you would like to watch the demonstration as a playlist of shorter videos, click on the video below!


The demonstration is designed to show you ALL the rules of Karacterz, even though some are not usually played in a normal game. So what you see in this video is the most complicated a game of Karacterz CAN be. In fact, there are some rules you can play without and still play a very fun and fair game.

That’s the beauty of Karacterz: it is designed to work WITH you and not force you to bend over backwards to learn all the rules. We’ve played many games of Karacterz without combos and using the powers of Stat cards and it was still lots of fun. Some people appreciate not having to do so much math to play their games.

We hope you enjoy the videos!

In our demonstration of Karacterz (check out previous post for the links!), we use placements mats. The photos of this post are those placement mats! These mats help keep your play area organized, labeled and reminds you of the limitations when building your ultimate fighter.


You can download them here as a PDF:


Not only that, but these mats are completely customizable to fit your comfort and play style! Just print, cut along the dotted lines and around the Discard Pile and Combat Deck in the second photo and place on the table as you like! Each copy is for one player.

Karacterz: The Ultimate Character-Building, Fighting Card Game!! Check out the new Target Cards!

Karacterz: The Ultimate Character-Building, Fighting Card Game!!

Only 9 days after the release of the ultimate character-building, fighting card game known as Karacterz, we released an addition to make the game more fair and more fun!

This addition is Target Cards. We have found in games with 3 or more people, it is easy to pick a better opponent to attack after revealing your actions. Depending on the group of people, this is not a problem or even makes Karacterz more fun. However, for those who wish an absolutely fair game, players will need Target Cards.
To use this addition, each player grabs a Target card that looks like another player’s Core card. During the game, pick the card you wish to play along with a Target card that matches the Core card of the opponent you wish to attack and reveal them together at the appropriate time. When you’re playing a boost or block, you may also play a Target card to trick your opponents into thinking you’re attacking and hiding your true intention to block or boost instead.
These cards can be purchased along with the game in a bundle pack here for only $1 or here separately for $3.99.
