BOLD MAID is a card game for kids. It's a redesign of the traditional game, Old Maid.

To refresh your memory, Old Maid is a matching card game. There is no match for the Old Maid, so the player who ends up with her, loses the game. I've politically corrected this game to chip away at the negative connotations concerning single women. So in my version, the one who ends up with the BOLD MAID is the WINNER.

Risks and challenges

If I raise enough funds here on Kickstarter, I'll have the decks printed. The printer I use will depend on how much I raise. Both printers that I'm considering have assured me that their process is "green".

I reserve the right to alter characters in small ways as the designs progress to make sure the design of the deck works as a whole.

The timeline for delivery is not written in stone. It may be sooner than I've projected but because of the variables involved I can't be sure.
