SPACED OUT®: A fast-paced card game w/exciting variables! Play out-of-turn, take multiple turns, defend attacks, score strategically.

About this project

     SPACED OUT sold out of its initial printing and we are reprinting the game due to popular demand.  Kickstarter funding will help remunerate the costs of Trademarks and Copyrights, graphic art on all cards, tuck box and the printing of SPACED OUT.

     Many people are anxiously awaiting the new SPACED OUT games and here's why:

Jody in WY said:  "Our games are worn out and we cannot find it anywhere.  Spaced Out is our families favorite game!  I cannot tell you how much we love this game.  It is so versatile. No matter who it is...young or old...old players or newbies...everyone loves this game and we come back to it time after time."

Tonya in CA claims:  "SPACED OUT is like UNO on steroids!"

     SPACED OUT is a fast-paced card game with new and exciting variables.  Players are often on the edge of their seats, anticipating playing out-of-turn and playing quickly to avoid losing their turn.  SPACED OUT is for 2-8 players, ages 8 & up.

     SPACED OUT is made of of 108 colorful, high-quality playing cards.  There are 80 numbered cards and 28 specialty cards.  The promo pack contains 8 additional, totally new, specialty cards:  Wild Asteroids, Lunar Eclipses and Solar Eclipses.

     "CLONING" is an exhilarating part of SPACED OUT game play.  Numbered cards 1-10 in four colors each have an identical "clone" card which may be played out-of-turn, earning that player an extra turn.  Sometimes a player may play several cards in a row, while everyone else is attempting to make a play!

     Enjoy the excitement as you attack players on your right or left side with Asteroids, or attack players' one person away from you with Shooting Stars, or attack all opponents at once with the dreaded BIG BANG! Use WILD cards wisely to attack and defend, while also manipulating the colors of the two playing piles.

    Please notice the new color patterns in our new designs.  These attractive patterns are intended to make the game playable for those who are challenged with color/shade discernment.

 Save FORCE FIELDS to defend against attacks. Don't hold onto attack and defense cards too long as they count against you, should someone end the hand.  This game is fast playing, so players note how many cards others have left in their hands, to avoid unwanted surprises.

     Use BLACK HOLES to skip everyone and earn an extra turn for yourself.  The aim of the game is to score the lowest number of points.  One may end a hand and end up with a higher score than other players with several cards in their hands, due to the unique scoring strategy.

     Every hand of SPACED OUT is unique, making the game fun for different size groups and timeframes.  Young, middle age and older people enjoy this awesome fast-action card game!

    Many of you know and enjoy SPACED OUT already.  Discover the extra enjoyment of the Promo Pack which enhances scoring strategies.  Lunar Eclipses are -5 points and the Solar Eclipses are -10 points.

Thank you so much for all of your support and may a FORCE FIELD BE WITH YOU!

Risks and challenges

Our largest challenge will be the time and duration working with a printer in China to get everything correct and timely. We have two trusty proofreaders on our end and hope for the best. The cards are already redesigned front and back. A new logo and tuck box are also being used. We are ready to print new games once the funding reaches our goal of $ 6,000.
