Help DARDZ come to life!!!

  • What is DARDZ?

DARDZ is a game of mostly luck with just the right amount of strategy. The goal is to score 150 or more points and there are 5 ways to score points. It's not required, but the easiest way to keep score is by using our free DARDZ app.

When it's your turn you roll dice to try and get certain numbers so you can add cards from your hand to your points pile. But you have to look out because other players can also add cards to their points pile during your turn! There are also 6 different action cards and a few rules to keep things interesting. It can be played with 2-8 players and you can play every man for himself, or in teams of 2. Go to DARDZ.com to learn how to play.

There are also rules for drinking DARDZ if you're looking to sip a nice beverage. Make sure and try out our world famous cocktail, The Dardy. The recipe is in the drinking DARDZ instructions that come with the game and in the app.

  • Where did DARDZ come from?

DARDZ was a product of sheer boredom. I was in Canada with my family over Christmas break and found myself bored out of my mind one afternoon. I looked in my backpack and saw a deck of cards and 2 dice, so I decided I would try to invent a game that I could play with my siblings later that night...so I did!

Over the next year of playing DARDZ with my friends in Nashville, DARDZ developed into the fun game that it is today. I've always loved inventing little games for my friends to play, but DARDZ is so fun that I wanted to share it with everyone!

My talented wife's company, Cash Color, made the dope logo and beautiful card designs. My cousin killed it on the videos and images with his company, Cooke Productions. My friends at PXL Potion nailed it on the app design. Thank God i'm surrounded by such talented people!

  • Where is DARDZ at currently?

DARDZ is fully developed and ready to be mass produced. I made some prototypes that look awesome but I need some pre-orders from you guys so I can print more! The app is also done and will soon be available on the app store. Again, it's not required to play, but it makes keeping score way easier. It's a free download. I also made an instructional video that will help you learn how to play. Go to YouTube and search How To Play DARDZ. In other words, all systems are go and ready for launch..!

  • How can you help?

That's a great question! The biggest way you can help is by spreading the word. If you like playing games, the first step would be to get yourself a copy of DARDZ and play it with your friends. Then, if you enjoyed it, tell your friends about it!

DARDZ is all about having fun...aren't all games?! So, the end goal of DARDZ is to bring people joy. You can help me spread some joy by telling your friends about DARDZ. Also, make sure and tell me what you think about the game. All feedback is welcome :). Send emails to PlayDARDZ@gmail.com.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk of this project is the possible embarrassment from failure. It's not easy putting your ideas out there and asking people to support them. It's also not easy inventing a fun and simple game that everyone will enjoy! There's a lot of competition out there. This is the first game i've ever tried to take to market, so I have no prior experience with this.

But the fact is, every time I play DARDZ with my friends we laugh and have a good time. So I can only hope that you guys will have just as much fun!

Thank you so much for checking out DARDZ.
