Kasanova was the first licensed BRAWL deck that never was.
We had originally planned to print him in the extra space left over on
the printer's sheet from printing Froop!, but as
it turned out the manual labor involved in sorting the Kasanova
cards on the sheet out from the Froop! cards and getting them into
boxes would have cost us more than the price of the game. So, the extra
space in Froop! ended up being filled with translations of the
rules into 15 different languages, and Kasanova, sadly, was cast
aside... until now.
Now, BRAWL: Kasanova is finally available in all his super-stylin'
splendor absolutely free as a PDF download here. This BRAWL deck is sanctioned by Cheapass Games, and is thus absolutely
legal to use in any BRAWL tournament you might wake up to find
yourself in, dressed as a milkmaid. Enjoy.
Here's how to make him go:
That wasn't hard at all, was it? You might want to get something to stop
the bleeding now.
- Download the PDF file (We're assuming you
have Acrobat Reader). It's a 14 meg
file, so it might take a while over a slower connection.
- Print out the PDF file in color onto cardstock, or print it out and
copy it onto cardstock. If you absolutely must, you can print it out in
black & white, but the shame that doing so brings is more than most
mortals can bear. You need to end up with TWO copies of each of the
first two pages, and you can copy the card-backs from the third page onto
the back of each page if you're feeling extra snazzy.
- Cut out the cards with safety scissors, a papercutter, or, ideally,
the power of your mind. We apologize for the lack of dotted lines, but we
feel confident that you're up to the challenge of blindly guessing where
you're supposed to cut. Throw away one of the four Freeze cards (or
hang it in your locker so you can giggle like a filthy schoolgirl every
time you see it), leaving you with three Freeze cards. If you
printed these cards out on cardstock like you were supposed to, then
you're all ready to play. Otherwise, you'll probably need to put them in
Here are the rules for the two special cards in this deck that
don't appear in the basic set:
Wild Hit: A Wild Hit can be played on a Hit of any color, and any
color of Hit or Block can be played on a Wild Hit. You cannot play a Wild
Hit on a Base or a Press.
Reverse: Play on a Base. Whoever has fewer Hits on his own side of
a Reversed Base will win the Base. The object is now to have more Hits on
the opposite side. Ties still go to the owner of the Base.

In case you're wondering, Kasanova first appeared in Coffee Drop,
a home-brew Gameboy Color game that won third place in the first Bung
Enterprises Gameboy Coding Competition. Yes, I said Bung. If
you're aching for the great-tasting combination of addictive gameplay and
sub-mediocre programming, you can download it right
here, also for free. You will, of course, need some kind of Gameboy
Color emulator to run it, but that shouldn't be too hard to find. No I
won't help you. All kinds of free stuff today... it's just like Christmas
only momma's not cryin'!
Kasanova will appear in future Savant Garde games, so keep
your eyes open and your umbrellas at the ready!
