Burst My Bubble is a multi-phase family strategy card game for 3 to 6 players. The inspiration came from a kitchen experience. While starting the new dishwasher, I mistakenly filled the dishwasher cap with regular liquid detergent. This created a surge of soap bubbles, flowing from the dishwasher. Burst My Bubble is about the clean-up. Play in two phases, Bubble Up and Burst. Collect Bubbles and attempt to win as the Bubble Player or pop bubbles and mop up the points by completing sets. The first player to score 1200 points wins the game!

This is a layered strategy card game for families. Don’t let the soap bubbles fool you. There is a bit of luck, since it is a random draw card game, but the game is decided by the choices players make. This game opens your mind to new game emotions. It is a crazy choice to make your hand vulnerable to win the game, but that is what you are doing when you say “Burst.” Sometimes you get dealt payback and other times you deal the payback. All in all, it is a new card game with unique cards and mechanics. This game is a great edition to your game shelf.

We made the decision to begin with a small funding target. This allows us to easily have a successful campaign at a low backing price. Until we reach the final stretch goal Burst My Bubble will be printed at lower volumes, but on a quality poker card. “I don’t know where this prototype was printed, but the print quality is awesome” Thanks for saying so, Edo Barafu, we agree with you. And, we spent a great deal of effort to guarantee our backers receive a high quality game, even at small print runs.

The final stretch goal includes a custom shrink-wrapped and printed two-piece box, printed in the USA. Until we reach that stretch goal the sturdy 2 piece box and 2 soap boxes shown in the demo video is what will be used to hold the game. In both options, the game is printed on premium quality poker-size cards that are resilient to high shuffling.

 

Burst My Bubble was designed with families in mind. The theme of soap bubbles resonates with most people regardless of age or gender. There is layered strategy in the game, which adds new elements each time you play. With the strategic depth and the amount of luck that comes with a random draw card game there is enjoyment for most types of game players.

Burst My Bubble is designed with unique card features and strategies. When you see a card with an indented corner it lets you know it can be used to modify cards. This is called nesting and is utilized by the Bubble player during the Burst My Bubble phase.

Burst My Bubble comes with six unique hero bubbles. Each one is cleverly illustrated by veteran artist Mike Bocianowski, the author and creator of “YETS!” The individual hero bubbles add distinct strategy to the game increasing the discovery and replayability with different number of players.

Risks and challenges

At Purple Potato Games, we have formed relationships with reliable USA-based manufacturing options from small to large volume print runs and fulfillment, so, we do not anticipate any problems receiving product from the manufacturer (i.e. no overseas shipping or customs). Also, we believe in sticking to deadlines and transparency to our backers. Therefore, we will provide information of our progress and challenges as we work to complete our project and fulfill your pledge to us.

Other then a final edit of the cards and game rules, the game is complete. We do plan to add some artwork pieces to the game before printing and anticipate those changes will be completed shortly following the conclusion of our kickstarter campaign.

There are some risks of delays out of our control, such as, a manufacturing slowdown or damaged shipped goods. As stated above, if there becomes a situation that will impact the timeliness of manufacturing or shipping a promised game, we will quickly provide an update with details of the delay.

Purple Potato Games is a small team and it is always possible that something could happen to one of us. In the event of severe illness, debilitating injury or death, we are committed to taking up the slack of the lost team member to complete the final pieces of the project and ship to our backers.

Finally, If you have a question regarding Purple Potato Games or our current project we would appreciate it if you’d email it to us; info@purplepotatogames.com. We will make sure it gets answered.

Thanks a bushel for your support!
