About this project
Wolf Tags are high-quality engraved aluminum dog tags intended to help players track the living and the dead in a game of Werewolf. They also serve as a memento of a fun game night, and they just plain look cool!
A "pack" of Wolf Tags contains at least 12 Wolf Tags in your chosen color, but as the campaign hits certain stretch goals, each pack will contain additional tags. These tags are approximately 3 mm thick, measure 2" x 1.12", and come with a 30" chain so that they're easy to take on and off without opening a fastener.
Werewolf is a social game rife with bluffing, cajoling, and general shenanigans. It's grown to be a staple convention activity, but it also makes a great game night event since it easily accommodates a large number of players. Last but not least, it pairs well with your favorite beverage, no matter what that may be.
The game itself does not require special components - a handful of coins can be used to assign player roles just as well as a commercial set of Werewolf cards or tokens, and the game rules are readily available in various locations online.
Individual games of Werewolf are fairly quick, and players are eliminated throughout each game. After a few games (or a few of those aforementioned beverages), it can become challenging to keep track of which players have been eliminated in a given game. When all the living players are wearing Wolf Tags, it's easy to tell who's still alive and who's puppy chow.
If you would like to order additional packs of Wolf Tags (in the color or colors of your choice), simply add $16.00 per pack to your existing pledge at the Werewolf level or higher.
Once we meet the funding goal, stretch goals will increase the quantity of tags in each pack or give backers the opportunity to vote on certain elements of my next Kickstarter project.
- FUNDED – Each pack of Wolf Tags includes 12 tags
- $2,000 – Each pack of Wolf Tags includes 13 tags
- $2,100 – Backer surveys include a vote for the theme of the upcoming game (from choices like gothic fantasy, steampunk, etc.)
- $2,200 – Backer surveys include a field where backers can ask any question they wish, and it will be answered in an upcoming blog or podcast
- $3,200 – Each pack of Wolf Tags includes 14 tags
- More stretch goals coming as previous goals are met
We need your help! Kickstarter projects live or die by the communities behind them. We would greatly appreciate any support you can provide by by sharing this project on social media, forums, blogs, and podcasts and/or by adopting a Wolf Tags avatar somewhere around the web.

Hey, I'm DC, and I've been creating games since about the time I learned to walk and talk. From pulling dice out of board games to turn my toy box into a miniatures game to packing folders full of roleplaying game designs before I even knew what roleplaying games were, gaming has always been a central part of my life.
I spent the first decade of my professional career as an electrical engineer who freelanced for game companies at every opportunity. I left the engineering world behind in 2005 to focus more fully on the world of game development. Over the years, I've had the opportunity to work on card games, board games, miniatures games, roleplaying games, and social games, and I've got piles and piles of game ideas I'm eager to realize.
My oh-so-patient wife, Jess, has been along for this ride since the very beginning and is my biggest supporter. Thanks, hon!
Risks and challenges
Since this is my first Kickstarter project, there are bound to be some associated risks. I'm still learning a lot about Kickstarter - how to promote a Kickstarter project, record audio for a Kickstarter video, edit said Kickstarter video, organize the packing and shipping, and on and on and on.
I've received my fair share of "You know nothing, Jon Snow" feedback since this is my first trip beyond the wall, but I've also approached this whole Kickstarter journey cautiously. I didn't start with a hundred-dollar big box game with scores of art assets and production hurdles. I started with some dog tags. It's a low-risk project that I know I can handle and that I hope lots of gamers out there will enjoy.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
