Scrimish: An Addictive 10 Min Strategy Card Game

$111,824

Stretch Goals:

Skirmish is now Scrimish 

Half way through the campaign it was brought to our attention that Skirmish is already a name for another kickstarter card game. Since we do not want to infringe on other people's trademark or confuse our customers Skirmish has been renamed to Scrimish (a Middle English version of Skirmish).

What is Scrimish?

Scrimish is a fast moving card game that pits player against player in an epic 10 minute battle of strategy, memory, and misdirection. Every game is different, and you'll want to play over and over again to try new ways of outsmarting your opponent. The game is expandable to large team or free-for-all games. 

Scrimish comes with two 25 card decks each containing the cards pictured above. Strategically place these cards in 5 rows of 5 to defeat you opponent(s)

Infinite Strategy, Infinite Possibilities

Scrimish is simple enough to learn in under 2 minutes but has strategy deep enough for an MIT grad to lose their mind over. 

It’s got the other following things you will love:

  • Expandable to large team or free-for-all games. 2 Players/deck.
  • For ages 8+
  • Portable 50 card deck
  • Relies on memory in addition to strategy
  • NO LUCK INVOLVED!

How does it work?

To get started each player selects the location of each of their cards and places them in 5 rows of 5 as shown.

What does it comes with?

The game will show up at your doorstep before the holiday season in pristine retail packaging. There are 50 cards per deck. Cards are 2’’ x 3.5’’ made from premium card stock, professionally printed and digitally cut.

How far along are you?

We spent countless hours slaving over every aspect from game play to card design and we think we finally got it right. We recently completed a short run of cards with a local card manufacturer and have a complete game ready for production. We have also hand picked our manufacturing partner to make the version of Scrimish that will arrive at your doorstep. We have worked with these guys before and they do top quality work. This is where we need your help. 

There is a large upfront cost of $4000 needed to start production. We promise to give the manufacturer the OK to start production the second (or maybe hour) we reach this funding level.  

Risks and challenges

We have taken all necessary steps to make sure that you receive a professional quality game at your doorstep by the holidays. The game-play has been meticulously tested and the design work was carefully thought through.

We partnered with and vetted a reliable card manufacturer that can make up to 50,000 units/day. We have worked with this manufacturer on several other projects without hiccup.

Finally, we selected a local fulfillment service to make sure that your orders get to you in a quick and efficient manner. If for some reason things go awry, we promise to frequently post updates to keep you in the loop.

Thanks in advance for believing in us and supporting Scrimish.
