Squirmish is now on Kickstarter here. This is a series of posts designed to help you learn a bit about some of the cards before you play the game.

Mummyfrog is card #6. Born over 2000 years ago in the river Nile, this ancient amphibian is in awfully good shape for his age. Buried with a forgotten pharoah, he was released from his tomb when some explorers rediscovered it back in the thirties.

Back before he was a mummy, Mummyfrog romped about playfully in the water… but water no longer agrees with his sensitive mummy-skin. He now swims about in the sand, often hiding underneath it for days at a time. He still eats flies, but only flies that are dead and dried out… you can often find him lurking around windowsills and light fixtures looking for a dried fly lunch.

Woe unto those afflicted with his Curse of the Nile… it does 3 damage to ALL active opponent cards! Opponents are going to want to be awfully careful attacking this little fella, though… he does 2x damage when attacking a card that attacked him on the previous round.

For a little guy, Mummyfrog has a lot of hitpoints… 12 of them. Happily, all those years of baking in the sun has made him more solid than brittle… he feels more like a raisin than a matchstick when touched.
