BOLD MAID is an updated version of the traditional card game, Old Maid, with a twist.

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 Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

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.

    Your own CUSTOM CHARACTER designed into the deck! You'll need to provide me with a photo, a nickname, or just a short bio of whomever you wish to honor and I'll take it from there. I'll be sure to run the design by you before going to print. See examples on the video of Gingersnap, Flipster, Little Mann, and Scribble to see how this works. PLUS, you will receive a signed Giclee print of your character AND a deck of BOLD MAID cards.
