Big Boy Throwdown

The award-winning card and dice game of Wacky Battles!




The Award-winning card & dice game of wacky battles is BACK, and this time it's SMALLER! Which means it costs YOU! LESS! MONEY!

This version of BBT does not include a physical rulebook! You can find the free downloadable PDF of the BBT instructional booklet in the downloads section of this page.

Big Boy Throwdown has been retrofitted for the classic card size used by most regular style card games, such as fan favorite: Poker! Also Magic: the Gathering! In addition, literally half of the cards have new, redesigned art!

But anyway, What IS Big Boy Throwdown?


Big Boy Throwdown is a fun, casual card game for 2 to 6 players.

Armed with a hand of crazy, colorful characters, face off against your opponents in an all-out battle!

Play your cards, roll the dice, get even more cards and play your way to the top! With 100 unique cards in this first Deck including angry eggs, strange salesmen, cosmic clowns, friendly frogs, chicken champions, noble knights, sentient squares, a giant green cat named 'Dr. Uncle' and more, BBT is all the fun and variety of classic trading card games, easy to learn and straight out of the box!



87 unique character cards

8 Event cards

5 Summon cards

The Game

Gameplay runs in a slick & quick combination of strategy and chance, with players using the cards in their possession to attack their opponents' cards. If a player destroys an opponent's card, they roll to draw a random card from the Deck. This is the only reliable way to keep getting cards.

All cards have their own unique stats and a variety of Effects, which twist the rules and vary wildly in power & utility.


Perhaps one of the most chaotic elements of BBT is the separate Event Deck, which is only drawn from when a "BIG Card" is destroyed. Event cards can give players free cards, special upgrades, or even the chance to destroy everything on the board.


Because of the sheer number of cards in this first Deck, you may very well play half a dozen games of BBT before you see all of the unique, comical, and wonderfully surreal characters that we've packed into this first installment.

Ages 12+

Recommended game size: 2-6 players (BBT is designed for groups of 3 or more players, but does work with two players. More than 6 players can play BBT at a time, but game time will be longer as a result)

Avg. Game Length: 5-20 minutes

The Developers

BBT is a labor-of-love project by Clown Car Entertainment (formerly Big Boys LLC), a small group of artists and creators from Pittsburgh, PA.

The game was first created in fall of 2016 when the makers were in college, and quickly won the hearts of their peers who played it between classes and during get-togethers. We're eternally grateful for all of the support they gave us; it helped us turn sketches on index cards into a fully fledged game project that anyone can play.
