Ruckus Games brings the charm of playing games with someone you care about to their reviews. They walk through some of the law cards and advanced strategies

"For a simple game to have as much strategy as it does, I’m really impressed with this" – Ruckus Games

Ric White from One Board Family shares his thoughts on the surprises Smuggles n' Snuggles has in store.

"This game while cute and adorable on the cards actually has a deep strategic element to it. It’s actually very chess-like" – One Board Family

“it’s hard to believe what a monster hides behind the 16 playing cards” – The Boardgame Monkeys

Boardgame Monkeys Review

“Plays in about 15 minutes, really cute drawings, a really interesting take with simple rules” – Logan Chops Reviews

Joshua and Elizabeth Burall have reviewed more than 60 games since August 2017, with over 18,000 views.

“Simplicity that still gives you something to think about” - Boardgame Mechanic

Joel Kratzer and Jason Smith dissect Snugs’n’Smugs on the Boardgame Mechanics channel.

Risks and challenges

The game design and art is finished so this campaign is all about funding the production and distribution, which is no small task. I've contacted multiple suppliers and have made backup plans for the printing process to ensure that if funded this game will be made.

Plan A: If we get 200+ orders, I can order from PrintNinja. They have enabled countless self-publishers to fulfill their orders on Kickstarter and have been a huge help with costing estimates.

eFulfillment Service then makes sure your order gets to you. They have worked closely with PrintNinja in the past and offer order tracking to ensure your orders get to you in pristine condition.

Plan B: If we get <200 orders, I'll use www.thegamecrafter.com, which will print each of your orders individually and ship them to you. However, it will be harder for me to track orders and maintain my desired bar for quality.

Plan C: I go to my local library, print you a copy, carefully cut the cards out, and hand-deliver to your address.
