About

My Story

Have you ever been called a lazy genius?  Well I have.  And from my wife no less.  According to her I consistently come up with great product ideas but am too lazy to ever fully embrace the idea and actually create the product.  So to prove her wrong I worked with Bearman Cartoons of beartoons.com to come up with the design, tested it, sourced manufacturers, and created the supporting website http://99blast.com

99Blast is a card game, where the object of each hand is to NOT be the player to take the running count above 99. It is based on the game 99, which some people may have played with a normal deck of cards. That is how I was introduced to the game playing with my mother-in-law. However, it became confusing as you had to have certain cards of the deck representing 99 or negative 10 so it became hard to follow.  That led me to create 99Blast with all the cards clearly identifiable and with additional "blast" cards to enhance the fun.

Now it's up to you to help me make 99Blast a reality by supporting this Kickstarter campaign and in return you will get the highest quality set that I could find.  And no cheap cardboard boxes that come unglued.  Each deck will include at no extra charge a hard clear plastic case that both looks great and will protect your game investment longer!

The Game

Again the object of each hand of 99Blast is to NOT be the player to take the running count above 99.  Once the basic rule play of the individual hand is learned, you can make the full game your own.

  • Make it a Family Game:  Great for family game night for anyone that can do simple addition/subtraction up to 99.
  • Make it a Learning Game: Great for kids who are learning to add/subtract to learn in a fun environment.
  • Make it a Poker Game:  Great for friends who want something different than Hold 'Em or 5 Card Draw.
  • Make it a Drinking Game: Great for...well drinking (please drink responsibly)

Risks and challenges

Everything is designed and the manufacturer has been sourced.

So unless the post office stops working, the manufacturer goes on strike, or something else unforeseen happens, everything should deliver on time.
