About

Welcome to SPROKIT! As fathers and game enthusiasts, we are always on the lookout for new games and great ideas to bring friends and families together. A few years ago, we set out to create a game of our own that would do just that! 

Our goal was simple: How might we create a game that would bring individuals of varying ages and attention spans together, creating an equally challenging and fulfilling experience for every player? We have worked for years perfecting and playing this game, and the result is always the same…laughter, flying elbows, and palpable intensity. We won’t mention the super-secret ninja-skills our kids learn as they play the game (quick decision making, hand eye coordination, breaking complex tasks into easy, achievable steps) – We'll just let them love playing it with us!

The idea for this game came from a desire to create something that families and all ages could play together and not feel like they lacked in ability or were holding anyone back. Anyone can jump into the game – even after others have been playing for a while and still end up winning the whole thing!

You may win the round…but will you win the game?

 We have lined up the mold makers and injection molders for the final production set, and continue to work on further streamlining our supply chain from production to shipping. the more success we have on Kickstarter, the more efficient we can be in production.

If successfully funded, we will purchase the permanent molds and begin production of the final game to ship to all of our backers! As you may be aware, plastic injection molds are the most significant expense of a project like this. We have all the necessary supply-chain vendors and suppliers lined up and ready to go!


Our early prototypes were created using hard-board and acrylic cut with a laser cutter. These worked okay, but the pieces were brittle and could be hard to pick up from a table-top. We also had a more complex playing-level tracking system. Our current prototype is made up of plastic pieces that have been 3D printed, and are the actual size and shape that the final game pieces will be. The final sets will be created using injection molding for the individual SPROKITS and the number of assemblies per level has been increased significantly in order to reduce the chance of receiving the same assembly twice in a row. The current prototype cards have been professionally printed just the same as the final cards will be.

Risks and challenges

In any project like this, there can be a number of risks and challenges that may arise, hindering the success of the project. We have worked tirelessly over the past number of months, making sure we have a complete analysis of what it will take to get this game successfully produced and shipped to our awesome supporters. We are confident that we can now produce this game and get it shipped, once funding is complete. We are still working to make the process we have lined up even more streamlined and efficient. Depending on the level of success we enjoy on Kickstarter, we may be able to benefit from additional "economies of scale," as Henry Ford put it. Meaning that with the greater number of units we produce, the efficiency per unit increases. This is why launching on Kickstarter is so powerful!
