WHAT IS FLIP HUE?
Flip Hue is a 3-6 player, 2-sided strategy card game. The goal is to get a 5 of a kind hand - either in your hand or on the back of other player's hands! But there is a limit - you can only win with your two faction colors. To achieve this, you push a card to player and pull a card from a player. Easy, right? Hang on a second! You also have to watch out for the Flip card - it could flip your entire strategy!
Flip Hue introduces two pretty unique mechanics - 2-sided cards where the back really does matter (even if you can't see it!), and Flip cards, which can flip your entire hand around. We say "push" and "pull" because you do just that - you have to make sure you see the same side of the card as you give it or take it from someone.
Once you get the hang of the new mechanics, it seems really simple - and THAT is when the strategy comes into play! Will you collect the faction color that people can see, or your secret faction? Will you collect your 5 of a kind in your hand, or try your luck on the back of someone else's hand? Are others trying to do the same thing? And what if your cards get flipped?!
For our team of designers, there is that moment when you're creating a game when you realize that it really clicks - players are laughing, swapping strategies, they get nervous and concentrate harder. It's the coolest thing in the world as a designer when you see players achieving the "Aha!" moment. Flip Hue is a card game that does just that!
After months of refining, re-titling, and re-meeting together, we've finally reached our biggest obstacle yet - printing costs! Since we don't have the extra dough to get our spectacular decks printed, that's where we need you! With Kickstarter, we'll be able to print cards for distribution and give Flip Hue a great debut.
If we raise enough money, it will be an awesome start to creating a new gaming company that can produce more great games!
Our goal with this Kickstarter is to collect enough after rewards and shipping to print 2,000 decks so we can start distribution to game stores across the country - even across the world!

...that we'll sell in the future. We'll also send you THREE copies of your game to go with that pull string bag and box! This offer is limited to 3 amazing people, so if you want it, get it fast.
We're independent contractors working under Studio 202 Games! Our current crew includes:
Bill - David - Jen - Jordan - Matt - Michael - Rebecca - Tim
In January, we were mostly strangers to each other. The Flip Hue crew met at this year's Global Game Jam in St. Louis. We wanted to make a new, unique game with new friends over one weekend - within 48 hours we did just that. After hitting some early success and having a lot of fun ourselves, we realized that we had a great, viable game!

Risks and challenges
Every project has hiccups, all of them.
This is the first Kickstarter creation experience for nearly all of us. Even though we've consulted EVERYONE we know (seriously, everyone) about Kickstarter and what to do/not do, we still will probably have a hiccup or two.
We haven't handled this level of shipping and logistics yet. We have put a ton of time into planning for shipping, and we're working with some really great people with the experience we don't have, but we anticipate that we're not going to anticipate everything.
NOT TO WORRY! We've analyzed and quoted and asked a billion questions, and many of us have backgrounds in retail, customer service, and management (not to mention being artists and designers by trade). We've padded production times, we've allocated some of our funding towards emergencies, we've got multiple backup plans for what we have anticipated as hurdles. The biggest factor is that we're communicators - we'll let you know if we find those hiccups, and we'll let you know what we're doing to fix them!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
