About this project
REWARDS UPDATE: The 4 Kickstarter Exclusive Cards are now included in all decks! Backers at $50+ will also have both Sunny Days & End of Days expansions included in all decks!
Super Tooth is a fast, family-friendly, dinosaur-themed card game for ages 5 and up. Super Tooth is easy to learn and can be played in about 15 minutes. It's a great way to engage and learn and have loads of fun at the same time! Super tooth is chock-full of colorful artwork that captures a personality for each dinosaur. Super Tooth is easy to set up and play, simply shuffle the deck and you are ready. To start the game, the first player turns over the top 3 cards from the draw pile. Players collect the Plant Eating dinosaurs into their hand and exchange sets of them for Cretaceous Coins, (victory points) all the while avoiding hungry carnivores and surviving the unpredictable and sometimes perilous prehistoric landscape. The first player to collect 3 Cretaceous Coins wins!!!
So if you’d like to support a game that is Fun, Fast, Family-Friendly, and filled with your Favorite Dinosaurs, please make a pledge of support. We greatly appreciate it. And thank you for taking the time to visit our campaign!

How to play Super Tooth video
At its core, Super Tooth is a luck game, which makes each gameplay fun and unique. Super Tooth is also layered with subtle strategy that challenges players to make decisions and consider the probabilities and possible outcomes. And while I say it’s for ages 5 and up, I play it with my 3 year old who pretty much gets it. So it’s really simple to learn and play it’s also really fun!
Super Tooth has been extensively tested with families and people of all ages and is ready for printing. Now all we need is your help.

What are Cretaceous Coins?
In Super Tooth, Cretaceous Coins are victory points. In the base game, Cretaceous Coins come in the form of cards. Backers can add the Cretaceous Coin add-on to their pledge and receive durable plastic Cretaceous Coins as a reward! I'm working on a stretch goal to provide higher quality Cretaceous Coins to all base games.
All stretch goals reached will be included with all single-deck pledges and higher ($14+)!
When will the game ship: This game will be shipped to backers no later than August 2014.
The music: All the music in the Super Tooth videos was composed and performed by my lovely daughter Adelaide!
About the designer: I love dinosaurs and I love games. I designed Super Tooth with my kids, for my kids with the goal of making a dinosaur game that is fun for both kids and parents!
THANKS: This project would not have come to fruition without the help of a lot of people. First and foremost, my family, for their support and who graciously allowed me the time (and it was a lot of time) to immerse myself in this adventure. To Oscar & Finn for their amazing ideas! To all the families and friends who playtested Super Tooth and provided feedback that made it a better game: Tim Alexander & family, Matt & Anne Timm & family, Kam "12th Planet" Ochsner & family, Jared Frye & family, Cyrus Kirby & family, Aaron & Carrie Bolshaw & family, and all who played at PretzCon. To TK421 Creative and Jared Frye who are always ready to offer a helping hand, be it expertise or equipment. And to Jesus Christ to whom I owe everything.
Risks and challenges
I have laid a significant amount of the groundwork to this point to minimize risk. I have selected the printer I will use, they are aware of the Kickstarter campaign and we have discussed manufacturing and shipping dates. The game has been playtested thoroughly (was tested thoroughly at a game convention) and is mechanically sound. The artwork is done, all that remains is for the artwork to be formatted to the printer's guidelines. I will have some additional artwork to complete at the successful conclusion of the campaign, but this work will not delay the manufacturing process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
