Video Vortex

No need to adjust your tracking – we've designed a revamped and revised 2020 edition of the Video Vortex rulebook that's available for download here. Plus, while supplies last, each purchase will be packaged with an assortment of limited-edition 2-color screen-printed handbills featuring art by Boneface and starring Mutants from the game.
Rewind your mind and prepare to enter Video Vortex, a competitive deck-building game for 2-4 players that takes what we love about VHS and video store culture and smashes it together into an action-packed board game adventure through a radioactive future Earth.
You play as a video-obsessed mutant battling your opponents for control of the wasteland. Each genre-worshiping character must strategically employ their individual mutant powers while battling opponents and navigating game effects. On their respective turns, players spend energy to play special cards, power their deck with rentals from the local video store, and eject chosen cards from play to weaken foes.
Runtime, the measure of mutant health, is limited and unique to each character. By advancing an opponent's runtime beyond their limit through Lo-Fi and Hi-Fi attacks, mutants collect "Be Kind" tokens as trophies representative of their conquest. Once three distinctive trophies have been collected, victory is declared by the reigning champion.
