Risks and challenges

Dear Backers,

We have taken all necessary precaution to mitigate foreseable risks so this game gets to you as quickly as possible without compromising quality. A reputable manufacturer with experience and a track record of quality products has already been appointed. They are on stand-by waiting for our go-ahead to start the first production batch.

We are still looking to appoint an experienced contractor for the implementation of the App version of the game. This will be contingent on us reaching our stretch goal.

We intend to be fully transparent with our backers and continuously inform them each step of the way on our progress.

Once again, Thank you for you support and without your pledge we will not be able to execute this within the timescales we would like.

On a personal note, I believe practicing spelling at any level becomes easier and more enjoyable through fun and engaging word games than from textbooks or classroom assignments. I have been playing word games for quite some time and have noticed that the Knockout word has been more beneficial than other games, in that there is a time limit to think, spell, and add (math) quickly, and I’ve learned new vocabulary from each person I’ve played with as a result. Our word picks with each game lead to enlightening discussions, which embed new vocabulary.

Our vocabulary keeps on growing, our spelling improving, and our cognitive memory is strengthening. Making time at least once a week, away from phones and TV shows, to enjoy a few rounds of the Knockout word is improving the quality of our lives and bringing us closer. The positive impact this game has had on us is a priceless reward that we hadn’t anticipated when we first created it-- the initial goal was simply to settle the score in finding out who was better at word games.

Thank you once again
