About

90% of the funds I raise will go directly into the production of the Defend-It game™.  You would think that  plastic rings and bean bags would not cost that much but in order to keep production costs down you need to order hundreds of thousands of feet of tubing and thousands of bean bags.  The money raised will allow me to order the minimum requirements of material needed to keep the cost of the Defend-It game™ down to the consumer.  The first run will be 500 Defend-It games™ at a minimum.  I certainly can make more depending how well received the game is. 

My goal is to make a website where the consumer can customize their game.  I've found that the white rings really stand out but someone might want red, blue or pink rings instead.  Wouldn't it be great  to be able to choose the ring colors and choose custom bean bags with your school logo or favorite super hero?  That will require multiple large orders but I'd like to think that is right down the road.  

The suppliers I have chosen need 4 weeks to get the material needed for the Defend-It™ game back to me.  That gives me 6 weeks to build and package the Defend-It™ games necessary to fulfill any orders for an August shipping date.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk I see is a production delay but the material I am using, the pieces needed, are not that specialized for this to happen. Everything I need is being made and shipped to me within the USA so I don't foresee any issues. I also have built in a good cushion from start of production to fulfillment and hope to beat my projections for an early ship date.
