Thanks to Scrummy fans who helped piece together these videos.  We hope to give all of YOU, just a glimpse of the many different scenarios we've had the opportunity to experience, while playing Scrummy with thousands of people over the years.     

Thanks to our supporters there are approximately  2,300 Scrummy games out there already.  We are thrilled to have the Kickstarter community help us introduce Scrummy to the rest of the world. 

A game for people ages 8 to 88 and Up, it has been said “there are no losers in this game.”  That’s because when you’re playing Scummy, everyone at the table is learning. Score sheets we’ve collected over the years, tell us that people learn an average of 2 to 3 new words every game simply because everyone brings something completely different to the table. We wantyou to get together to play Scrummy because with each turn, players are creating a giant brainteaser.  Scrummy players are seamlessly learning while having lots of fun!

Thousands of organizations will benefit from the use of Scrummy. We want YOU, to help Us choose a deserving organization to be a recipient of donated Scrummy games from our next print run, donated on behalf of our backers.  Stay tuned for future updates on recipient organization specifics.

Simply taking the time to watch our presentation, you have already helped spread the message of Scrummy.  Our videos attempt to sum up, in a few minutes, experiences of over 13 years.  And again we are Thankful!!!  We are so confident in our product, that once you see how the game is played, you’re going to want a game for yourself, OR, someone you know. Contributing to our project will help us begin putting Scrummy games, in the hands of everyone who wants one which again, is either you…… or someone you know!!!   

Kickstarter funding will allow us to fully execute our Business plan.  We will start by having new Scrummy decks printed.  Several of these games will be donated on behalf of our backers;  your votes will determine the recipient organization(s).  

Our Marketing plan calls for participation and demonstrations at several relevant educational and game trade-shows (at least 1 a month).  Each show will allow us the opportunity to popularize our brand and distribute Scrummy games to attendees.    

We will also be marketing to schools, after school programs, active Seniors communities as well as correctional facilities.  We have tested Scrummy in all of these different types of organizations, several of which are interested in having us return, with games to provide, facilitators to teach the game, and in some cases, set up weekly events. 

We know Scrummy is a game that is fun for all who participate.  Most importantly, we know this game is beneficial to those who play on a regular basis.  

Thanks again KickStarters, for helping Us get the Word out!!!!! 

Risks and challenges

One challenge we could face is production delays. We have a U.S. game manufacturer, yet much of the production work is done overseas. The ability to print more units at once will assist with solidifying vendor relationships.

Another challenge we expect to face is the risk of the game becoming so popular that we have to move from a home-based operation very quickly. We have local distribution companies able to assist us with rapid growth plans.
