Creepiest Pet Shop is an excellent lightweight card game that blends together speed, matching, and take that mechanics to form a game that appeals to all kinds of people! The simple to learn, fast paced game play, and adorable theme will appeal to casual gamers that enjoy games like Fluxx or Sushi Go! . While the competitive speed mechanic and cool renditions of cult classic monsters coupled with the many possible strategies for victory will  keep the more competitive gamers in your family entertained.

Creepiest Pet Pet Shop is also a game of skill. The more you play this game the better you become and the better you get at the metagame aspects such as knowing what cards to expect and which strategies to employ during the game. As time goes on and you and your friends and family get better the game grows with you into something more challenging and nuanced than it seems!

Lots of time was spent making sure that this game was balanced for all kinds of players. I wanted to make sure that this is a game that children and adults as well as gamers and non gamers could enjoy playing together! There are several different cards that can help stop a talented speed player from running away with the game so all players can have a chance to be competitive and have fun!

 Written Reviews:

"Each year there’s one standout activity that manages to capture the imaginations of my kids (not to mention their old man) as we explore a whole month of Halloween merriment. Sometimes it’s a book or a show or a toy, but this year it’s been Creepiest Pet Shop, a fantastic family card game"

About the Artists!

Harris Fagotto

Harris Fagotto stood out to me after viewing his stellar whimsical artwork for his Hiraeth Series. A mystical world filled with all manner of interesting beasts and spirits! His use of color completely enthralls me and his vision brought so much more life to Creepiest Pet Shop than I ever could have imagined. You can find more of his work at https://harrisfagotto.carbonmade.com/

Matthieu Cousin

 Matthieu was the first artist that I had join the project, a majority of the basic Monsters and Pets are his handiwork. His artwork is a delightful mix of Scott Pilgrimy Creepiness that I absolutely love. He also has his own graphic novel called Castle Quest that is an absolute joy to read! Check out his artwork at http://insidematthieu.tumblr.com/

Thank you very much for taking the time to view the kickstarter pitch for Creepiest Pet Shop! I hope that we earn your pledge and that you love this game for years to come!

Risks and challenges

Being a first time designer I have made sure to rigorously study all of the options that I have for printing and shipping and I have done my best to mitigate any circumstances that would prevent getting this game out to you. That being said I am aware that catastrophies can occur. Printers can screw up, boats can sink, and ports can take forever to unload containers. I have made sure to research my printers to insure that you will receive the highest quality product in the shortest amount of time possible.
