About this project
Wow! We are enormously honored to see such incredible support -- we doubled our funding goal in less than 24 hours! We didn't anticipate having to set up stretch goals so quickly, but we are excited to use this funding to make this game even MORE incredible. For our stretch goals, everyone at the $55+ funding level will receive everything added below. As we hit the Expansion Stretch Goals, everyone at the $40+ funding level will receive the expansions.
The Vlogbrothers have given us a mention in their latest video (and the one prior)! Thanks John and Hank!
We are just blasting through stretches! It's enormously encouraging to see so much support for this concept, and we're going to keep bringing you as many cool rewards as we can. Our stretches are starting to turn into a pretty wonderful package of Evil Baby game swag for everyone at the $55 level or above, so if you want to get in on it, make sure to get up to that level before funding ends. Most of this will not be available past the completion of this Kickstarter.
For our next stretches, we've brought our two most exciting ideas to the table. The first is an Evil Baby History Book -- evil histories brought to you in the form of a children's picture book. Next, we will indeed have a plushie at the 100k stretch if we hit it. We are going to ask John and Hank to join with us in deciding the most adorable Evil Baby, and if you have suggestions of your own, make sure to post them in the comments! Cheers all!
Keep checking back as we continue to push onwards to more and more goals!
Tiny, terrible, and in serious need of predeeming. Welcome to Evil Baby Orphanage, the world’s foremost time travelling facility for the preventive parenting of Evil Babies.
Evil Baby Orphanage is a casual party game where players take up the role of Time-Nannies and compete to remove evil from the time stream. Babies like Genghis Khan, Josef Stalin, and Vlad Tepes are all up for grabs, and it is your job to wrangle and redeem them before they commit the heinous deeds for which they were destined.
To all of Nerdfighteria, we have done our very best with this wonderful and fun concept.
Because we hit our third stretch goal, we will also be producing an expansion to Evil Baby Orphanage. The expansion will add a slew of new evil babies, as well as hilarious Orphanage cards that add separate win conditions to the existing set of mechanics. If we hit the stretch, we're looking forward to making this a reality and shipping it to you as soon as it's developed.
For those curious about what a Nerdfighter is, check below:
Evil Baby Orphanage is a card game for three or more players. Each player takes on the role of a Time-Nanny in an Evil Baby Orphanage, kidnapping villains throughout history and raising them to be accountants, ballerinas, or... something. Each player takes turns playing cards to help keep their Evil Babies from burning down their whole orphanage, and adopting more Evil Babies from the Time Stream.
Use good toys to keep Evil Babies from wreaking havoc, bad toys to encourage Evil Babies in other orphanages to cause a little trouble, and various Nanny actions to swap and adopt them as you try to keep the most evil out of the time stream.
The rules of play aren't much more complicated than time travel ... and that's how we like em! After all, those Evil Babies will cause all the mischief for us!
The Evil Baby Orphanage card game includes a 50 card Baby Deck and a 75 card Nanny Deck.

Your pledge includes shipping to North America. For overseas shipping, please add $8. If you live deep in the heart of the Congolese jungle, or are on sabbatical studying penguins in the Antarctic, we'll probably have to contact you and work something out.
Please note that if you fund at the $40, $55, or $150 levels, that your game will ship at the same time as the $18 level, and the later estimated ship date is for the case, miniature, and artwork only.
We want to have this game in your hands immediately, primarily because we have it, and it's awesome. Unlike babies, we like sharing. As you can see, the design is finished, and much of the art is in a finished state, but we need your help for the final step of production so we can actually get this wonderful game out to households everywhere. A successful Kickstarter will allow us to go into production immediately. We know you'll have as much fun as we have saving the Time Stream from all sorts of baby shenanigans.

No. The Eric the Red level offers 3 additional copies of the game and 3 additional special carry cases for the games. Since you do also get everything from the Jack the Ripper level, you do get 1 copy of all stretch goal rewards.
