Arcane Bakery Duel (Monthly Print-and-Play: March 2017)

Download the game from itch.io

It’s been a long time coming. You and a particular co-worker at the Arcane Bakery simply cannot work together anymore. In a moment of frustration, you challenge them to a duel: After close, no holds barred. The loser resigns. And cleans up the mess.


Arcane Bakery Duel is a tiny card game for two players, with a memory-based timed combat mechanic. Put recipes in the oven, and take them out at the right time to confuse, steal from, and cripple your opponent, while building up your own strength.

Defend yourself with a Impenetrable Fondant Field or a Toffeeskin potion. Send razor-sharp Cookie Shards flying at your opponent, or slow them down with a frosty Cone of Ice Cream.

Unfortunately if you mess up your timing, the whole batch could wind up exploding in your face.

This game was created for the 2017 9-Card Nanogame contest on BoardGameGeek, and, while playable, is not quite “finished”. Any feedback you can give would be very appreciated.


Update (2017/06/01): As I mentioned recently on my Tumblr, a revamped version of Arcane Bakery Clash is a finalist in the Buttonshy Wallet Game Contest. I don’t have this version up on itch.io yet, but you can check it out on Google Docs.
