About

Hi Kickstarter Community, I am excited to launch my first Project on Kickstarter!

My motivation to start this project: 

Being a mother of 2 teenagers, a healthcare worker, and a teacher, I always try to find ways where I can learn and memorize things while having a  lot of fun with others. Trying to help my kids learn spelling and having family time was important but a challenge in my busy life. And it is at that time when me and my husband came up with this game, that we have now named Word-It. Its a unique family friendly game which can be enjoyed within your own home or at parties and in school. It was nice to have a game that we could enjoy with our children, that they could enjoy with their friends, and that we could enjoy with our own friends. It improves social interaction and strengthens critical thinking, not to mention improving your vocabulary. 

Game Details:

Word-It is for ages 6 & up. It can be played with 3 or more players.The game has 112 cards: 4 instruction cards, 20 category cards, and 88 letter cards

The game

The goal of the game is to make words related to the selected Category using the letter cards in your hand. 

How to play: 

One of the player is selected as a dealer. He or she shuffles the category cards and spread them upside down, in front of the player on the left. That player will blindly pick up one card and place it facing upward on one side of the table. The dealer then shuffles the letter cards and deal 1 at a time to all the players, until each player has 10 cards in hand. The dealer then flips one card up and place it in the center of the table. The remaining pile of the Letter cards will be kept upside down at a place where everyone can reach them.

The player to the left of the dealer will start the game by either picking up the card in the center or a card on top of the Letter deck. If he needs that card he will keep it, otherwise discard it facing upward into the center pile. If he keeps that card then he has to discard another card in his hand. The players keep on taking turns in the same manner until one of them has used all his cards to make words related to the selected Category. At this point the game ends and the scores will be calculated.

Scoring: 

Every Letter card used in making a word will get 1 point. The player who ends the game will get points for all the letters that are not used by other players.

So please support our project, we are very excited to see this game in your hands this holiday season.

Stretch Goals:

At this time we are planning to have our cards printed from a USPCC recommended third party digital printing company within United States. However, if we reach our stretch goal of $30,000, we will be able to have the game printed from USPCC. Their requirements for minimum number of decks and since our deck has 112 cards(equivalent to 2 standard decks) and our promise for free shipping will not allow us to have it printed from them before we reach that goal. So we urge all of you to promote our project on Facebook, Twitter, blogs as well as in local gatherings, community meetings, workplace, school etc.  and help us reach our stretch goal. 

Risks and challenges

We have all the designs and ready to go to the press, and have already talked to the printing company, so hopefully there will be no delays. However, because of the Holiday season we might see some longer shipping time. To compensate that we have planned to ship the game by Dec. 15th deadline, So that USPS will have enough time to distribute them in that busy Holiday Season.
Also please note that the Estimated Shipping Time is only for within United States Backers. International Shipping Time may very greatly, so we cannot make any promises.
