This game came from a simple list. 

I love playing games, especially games that I can get all of my friends to join together on. Party games seem to be the solution much of the time, because so many people can join in on them. But I’ve sometimes been frustrated at how my victories (or mostly losses) can feel like they come from the luck of the draw instead of the decisions I make. 

So I made a list of everything that I like and dislike about party games to help set goals for developing a new party game. 

What came from this research, playtesting and trial-and-error was Gimme 5. A simple, yet strategic party game that you can play with up to 50 players.

Risks and challenges

We promise to do everything possible to deliver a quality product to you. Apart from some graphical tweaks that we will have from our rewards, the game is practically ready to print. We have identified our manufacturer and our distributer, so you have some experienced companies involved in bringing Gimme 5 to reality.

However, no amount of planning can prepare for delays that are not in our control. For instance, the game must be freighted from one continent to another. A labor strike, storm, or any other catastrophe could hold the game up at port. Customs could take more time than expected when approving the game. There are obstacles that can arise that we can't control.

This being the first game that we have published, I would be an honor to have you put your trust in us to bring you a quality product. No matter what, here is our promise to our backers: we will keep you informed. We value your partnership and will be sure to let you know the details about how everything is progressing.
