The Big Shuffle | A Film Noir Card Game

Created by Previously Pluto

The Big Shuffle is a competitive 2-4 player film noir card game, where you play as 1 of 6 characters, each with their own agenda and unique abilities. Players must use their wit, guile, and influence to outmaneuver their opponents and set their desired scene.

Thank you, everyone, for all your support. Without you, we would not have been such an explosive success. Now that we have officially sent out The Big Shuffle to all our backers, we are gonna burn the road to our favorite conventions! Come see us dressed to the nines at TooManyGames, at Oaks, PA, from June 23rd to June 25th. The first of many stops along the hard highway of the convention circuit. If you have not received your copy of The Big Shuffle or tracking information, please reach out to us via [email protected].

On the road

For our next Big move, we are shuffling the cards with a brand new game. Let us introduce, Oddware - A Sci-fi Visual Novel about quirky androids in space! It is quite the departure from our first game, but we love experimenting with games as a medium. We have officially launched our Steam page for the game, so please wishlist Oddware for news about our exciting new project!


While that's cooking, please check out some of our friend’s great games that are currently live on Kickstarter!

Have you seen the Wearable strategy game, Worn Wanderers? Cleromancy Games is an amazing company that was invaluable in the creation of The Big Shuffle and its expansions. They have developed a game just as creative as ours that is and attaches to backpack, Convention lanyard, or playmat! It's a wonderful way to meet and interact with gamers at conventions, game stores, or even your local park. They have 2 days left on their Kickstarter campaign, so let's give them a high sign of love and back them today!

We met Steve and Ben from Gem Blenders at PAX EAST this year; they are a great team and are very passionate about Gem Blenders, a TCG about Gem blending battles. We love to test new games and see their designs, so we gave Gem Blenders a shot and had a blast playing it. When we heard they had a Kickstarter, we wanted to back the project and have our own copy of this shiny gem of a game. Gem Blenders has been funded and keeps unlocking awesome stretch goals we can't wait to have. Be sure to check out their Kickstarter!

The Big Second Wave Update
6 months ago – Tue, Dec 20, 2022 at 06:05:48 AM


Hello all! We thought we would give one giant update for the end of the year. The biggest one being that we have some hard timelines for the 2nd Fulfillment Wave.

Update On Timeline

THE BIG SHUFFLE HAS REACHED OUR DISTRIBUTOR! This is fantastic news because that means everything from our manufacturers is now here in the states. Due to the busy nature of the holiday season, our distributor has told us that they will fulfill our orders in the first week of January. We are at the last step and we are excited to continue working with them to ensure all of your orders are fulfilled.

Happy Holidays!

Last but not least, we wanted to give a warm holiday thank you to everyone! This would not have been possible without your continued support and patience. From our early backers to those who supported us through the process, we appreciate everything you all have done to make this unique film noir card game!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please message us here on Kickstarter or reach out to us over email at [email protected].

Happy Holidays!

Product and Timeline Update
7 months ago – Tue, Oct 25, 2022 at 03:28:15 AM

Hello Big Shuffle Backers, good news! As we were resolving the shipping issues, we received videos of the final products: The Big Shuffle Game, The Red Light Expansion, and The Above the Law Expansion. Videos of the product are down below.

The Red Light Expansion

The Above the Law Expansion

Timeline Update

Regarding timelines, we decided to have our game be shipped in two waves to lower cost and allow some to arrive early. This option was a good compromise since it would allow us to start fulfilling orders asap and to stay with in the budget we had for shipping. The first batch is projected to arrive in December, while the second batch will arrive in January.

Thank you all, and if you have any questions, please email Cont[email protected] or send us messages here on Kickstarter.
