About

Hello! My name is Fin, and I have created a card game that teaches you the secret to having an Instafamous Cat account: matching cute photos with clever captions!

How To Play:

 

Who is in the game?

I've enlisted the help of my real-life Instafamous feline friends. Over 100 of them appear in the game such as Nala Cat, Maccha Cat, Iamthegreatwent, Proffesor Pouncey, Cole and Marmalade, Aarons Animals and White Coffee Cat.

What's in the box?

Over 200 Instafamous Cat Cards and 300 Clever Caption Cards plus instructions.

The rewards:

Who is making this game?

My cat-dad, James R Petix designed the game and wrote all the captions. He's a graduate from the Savannah College of Art and Design and a documentary filmmaker and commercial editor. His film "It Came From Detroit" was successfully funded on Kickstater in 2013. Since then he's been posting for me on social media.

Giving Back

Since Fin and Sawyer are both rescue animals we want to show our respect and support the people that are on the front lines saving animals from the streets. That's why we're personally donating 10% of the total raised on Kickstarter to various rescue groups. Locally in Los Angeles through Kitten Rescue, Luxepaws, Milo's Sanctuary and nationally through Lil Bub's Big Fund for the ASPCA.

Risks and challenges

James has already ran one successful Kickstarter campaign for his documentary "It Came From Detroit" so he knows what it takes.

The game is already created and fully tested. The only thing we still need to do is find a printer and/or distributor. We have some quotes already from some companies but we want to wait until we have a final total so we know how many to make. Our goal of $25,000 is to make a minimum of 1000 copies.
