About this project

THE GAME OF PRATTLE
Try to complete a grammatically correct sentence using cards with a single word. It doesn't have to make sense, and odds are it will be offensive.

Use modifying or action cards to alter the game play.

Use punctuation to finish a sentence and read it out loud! You get 1 point for each card in the sentence. After 10 complete sentences the person with the most points wins. Even if you're behind on the final round you could win with the right strategy and luck. You'll laugh harder playing Prattle than any other game!

PRODUCTION VALUE

The cards will be printed on high-quality stock with a glossy, professional finish, digitally cut and contained in a heavy-duty case. Directions included. 

FROM CONCEPT TO DELIVERY

Since the design is already complete, the process from concept to your door will be a matter of choosing a high-quality production facility as well as a fulfillment service to complete the orders. The prototype process usually takes about two weeks. After quality assurance can be established the whole run of orders will take about a month, followed by another few weeks of shipping (both to the fulfillment center and then to your door). I have estimated the time from the close of the project until delivery of the final product to be around 80 days, which means delivery will occur around the middle of October (well before the holidays). 

COLLECTOR'S EDITION

The Collector's Edition of Prattle will be the same riotous game but will be produced in an illicit white on black design. The box will come in a textured finish, with glossy white print. If at least 100 Collector's Editions Pledges are made I will never again produce Prattle in this black design.

FREE PDF DOWNLOAD—Please share Kickstarter link.

I have made Prattle available for free in a limited use license as a free PDF to download, print, and play (the design of this PDF is optimized for home printing and is not reflective of a physical copy of Prattle). Please review my game and share the link to this Kickstarter page if you like it. It is available for free use under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA 2.0 license. That means you can use, edit and share the game for free but you can’t sell it without permission. Please do not steal our work. If you like our game, please share it with those you love via Facebook, Twitter, etc. This game also makes for some excellent Snapchat moments..

Risks and challenges

I have already designed the entire game and packaging (I'm a graphic designer by trade). My challenge is getting the game into production and distribution. I have been noting every lesson Cards Agaisnt Humanity and other game makers have so graciously shared with the Kickstarter community. I plan to execute this project in a similar fashion. I don't want to compromise on production quality, so I'm basing the pledge amount on what it would be for retail, so I can create the best possible physical product. As soon as the project is funded my time will be spent setting up production and distribution of the final physical product.

I would also appreciate feedback from my backers (please post in comments section). I want to make Prattle one of the most fun party games available. I hope I get the opportunity to produce this game and the other variations of it in the future. I plan to release a family-friendly version and expansion sets—but in due time.
