SQUIRMISH™ The Beast Battling Card Game: Starter Set B

Clash crazy card combatants against each other in the massive mad melee known as The Squirmish!

You’ll need plenty of luck, strategy, and silly scrappers to knock out three of your opponents’ goofy goons. The rules are simple… draw, place, move or fight, and resolve special abilities… but the unique cards provide infinite variety (and hilarity) to the gameplay.

Squirmish Starter Set B contains everything you need to play the game... except for damage counters. We recommend using o-shaped cereal for that... just don't eat your damage! The set includes 54 different cards, each with a different character with unique abilities. In addition to Squirmish cards 55-108, this set includes the rulebook and one 6-sided die.



Squirmish is a fun alternative to mainstream character-battling card games designed to make kids buy packs and packs of cards to get the cards they want. The Squirmish deck includes all the cards you need to play and have fun… no buying endless packs of random cards necessary.

Don’t take our word that Squirmish is fun! Here is what reviewers have to say:

Kickstarter Tabletop Alert: 'Squirmish' - GeekDad [geekdad.com]

“Overall, I’ve had fun with Squirmish both with my kids and with adult players. I think it’s a lot of fun for families. The dice-based abilities mean that there’s still a good amount of chance involved, which gives less-experienced players a chance to take on more-experienced players, so gamers who want something with pure strategy may not like it quite as much. And don’t forget to shout your battle cries as you enter the fray!” – Jonathan H. Liu at Geekdad.



“It’s a really good game! I like the fighting.” – Ty (age 9) at Board Gaming at Home.

“Ty’s age, absolutely brilliant game. If there’s one downside, it’s the sheer variety.” – Russell at Board Gaming at Home.

“I like all the little characters that have been made up… they’re great fun.” – Kelly at Board Gaming at Home.



“It’s a simple card game, but it has a lot of meat to it… If you’re looking for a battling card game that you can introduce to people to maybe even get them into bigger and deeper games, this is a great introduction to do so.” – David at Sit Down Standard.

“It’s pretty straightforward and it’s quick to learn, but there’s a lot of different beasts and abilities.” – Alyssa at Sit Down Standard.

Kickstarter Preview: Squirmish - Engaged Family Gaming [engagedfamilygaming.com]

“I get several requests for Kickstarter previews every week. Recently, I was sent a request for coverage for a game called Squirmish that was designed by a gentleman named Steven Stwalley. My heart sunk a little bit when I saw the words “card” and “combat” in his elevator pitch, but that all went away when I looked over the art assets he gave me. Squirmish’s art is juvenile, obnoxious, and maybe even a little gross. In other words? I loved it.” – Stephen Duetzmann at Engaged Family Gaming.

Squirmish: A Monstrous Good Time - Multiverse [multiverse.world]

“This game is made in direct response to collectible card games aimed at the pre-teen age group, such as Pokemon. There are battling monsters in this game, but unlike a collectible game, everything you need to play is included in one box. I’m a Pokemon Professor and Judge for the card game, so I was really very interested to try this out. It did not disappoint and actually exceeded expectations.” – Chandra Reyer at TSR’s Multiverse.

“I don’t know what to say other than you might like it and maybe others won’t. I am one of those who like it. I don’t think it will replace Pokemon for me, but it is much easier to carry around around than all my Pokemon equipment! It is not cute. However , there are some cute Squirmish monsters. Cawfeather, Opossrat, Killgor the Conquerer, Cupcake, and a few more. I say anyone 2nd grade to 9th might like it. The Battle Cries are really funny! But don’t attempt to make a Donald Duck voice for Pompaduck. Oh, and be sure to add Googly eyes. Heheheheheheheheh (^._.^)/ Keep on Gaming! Meow!” – Chandra Reyer’s Daughter at TSR’s Multiverse.
