About

I created Kings Playing Cards way back in 2005 while I was a junior in college. Since then, the cards have been available online and at various retailers like Urban Outfitters. If we are able to raise the money, it will go toward a more creative and inappropriate version of the game. 

When I originally created Kings Playing Cards, I wanted to keep the language as PG as possible because I thought it'd be easier to sell to large retailers that way. Now that the internet has proven to be a viable outlet for inappropriate card games, it seems like a good time to get a little bit less politically correct. 

Some of the rules of Kings are classics and will not change from the original. For example, 2 will always mean “to you” and 3 will always mean “to me,” but we think we can kick some of the other instructions up a notch.  For example, when we played this game in college, 4 meant “whores” and 6 meant “dicks.” Besides these two (slightly) more raunchy examples, our goal is to invest in creative new rules and interesting design updates.

The funding will go toward designing and manufacturing a new batch of cards and marketing to let people know about all the fun drinking they're missing out on.

Risks and challenges

This is an existing product, so the only risk to backers at the lower reward levels is the USPS. They tend to lose things sometimes. For the new version, manufacturing is not a big risk because it's been done before. The biggest challenge is the creative and design process. But rest assured, we'll get a product shipped!
