About

We all know that the best games are usually created by everyday people rather than board game companies. The problem is, the costs for a small production run make it unfeasible for all but those with the deepest of pockets. However, thanks to Kickstarter, individuals are now able to produce their games without selling their idea to a board game company or breaking their bank account. That's my goal here, to use the funds collected to produce a small first edition production run of Museum Jackpot games. Museum Jackpot was conceived 10 years ago and has been played by my family for years. I started testing it with a local board gaming society and other families, as well. I’ve gotten great feedback and test results from nearly everyone who has played. Most importantly, everyone seemed to have a blast, and I’ve had many inquire about purchasing a copy. With Museum Jackpot, I’ve realized that I’m on to something. It is so different that anything else that’s available on the market, yet has much of the nostalgia and feel of a classic board game.

 Here's a quick back of the box description of the game:

"In what year did Vikings begin using drinking horns? Who Cares?? The real question on everyone's mind is ‘How much are those bad boys worth?'

In this original, zany game of Museum Jackpot, you don't need a brain full of useless trivia; all you need is to be able to bid, buy, bluff and sell your way to board game riches! Buy yourself an ancient Roman Coin, get a few appraisals for it and sell it to the highest bidder! Better yet, dig up some dinosaur bones and, if you're lucky enough, assemble a whole set. All those lovely bones are now worth TWICE as much in the form of a full T-Rex, Stegosaurus or Triceratops! Ah… but wait, what's that over there? It looks like a Chinese Vase… could that be the Jackpot? Go for it. Acquire that thing however you can, and if it's the Jackpot, hang onto it! Have it in your slippery little hands at the end of the game to collect your fortune from the Jackpot Bonus Section! Watch out though, because surely everyone read your expression when you looked at the appraisal card. They ALL know what you have and they are coming for you!"

For those of you who enjoy spending time with friends and or family, this is a great player interaction game for ages 8 and up. Every game provides so many twists and turns that each time you play, you’re assured a different outcome. I am excited for this opportunity to share this game with other families and appreciate all your support!
