Aldabas: Doors of Cartagena Card Game Up On Kickstarter

In Cartagena, Colombia, the door you have proudly proclaims your job and status in the town. Well, not the door, but the elaborate knocker that you adorn it with. This tradition is making a return in Aldabas: Doors of Cartagena, a new card game that's up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

In Cartagena, Colombia, the doors speak! Not with words, but with the grandiose knockers that adorn them. In Spanish colonial times, the knockers announced your occupation and your social status. Lions, lizards, sea creatures, and hands proclaimed the homes' occupants as Soldiers, Nobles, Fishermen, and the Clergy. The beautiful Door cards depict some of the most recognizable historic aldabas, brought to life through the art of Colombian artistJuan Vargas.

As you can see from the featured image, the campaign's over its funding goal. It's still got 13 days left to run.
