How it started
The game creation process started, because I wanted to create a simple and fast game that my students could play in my health classroom after they completed their work. My first game was okay.
I started talking to my brother Evan Dollard, and things started to rocket skyward! We brainstormed and made the game play much better and more engaging. He started on the artwork.
I started talking to my friend Chad Parker from Big Idea Design about the game. He talked me through the action steps to get a Kickstarter campaign off the ground and finished. This sounded way too hard for me, so I asked him for help. Big Idea Design is the main reason this campaign is up and running.

Risks and challenges
This is my first Kickstarter project, and it is challenging but really fun. I am enjoying the experience!
Even though this is my first project, the risk is very low because I am collaborating with the Kickstarter giant Big Idea Design. The only present risk would be an unforeseen hang up in manufacturing that would delay the delivery date. I feel confident the game will be produced with the highest quality and stay on schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
