WHY KICKSTARTER?

If we reach our goal, we will be able to pay for the manufacturing and shipping of Truck Off: The Food Truck Frenzy. Manufacturing is lined up. Artwork files will be shipping to the printer shortly after the project. All that is left is the funding.  

We're still small, and we love Kickstarter because it puts us directly in contact with incredible people willing to help build something they believe in. We're engaged with the community attending events and meetups around the midwest including Gen Con four years in a row.  We feel energized by these connections and building trust within the community. We reward our supporters with discounts on the game and free flowing communication with us the creators. As a backer, you'll be a copilot and chef on this journey to create awesome games.

PAST PROJECTS

In February 2015, we raised $36,078 on Kickstarter with our first game, Brewin' USA. This game takes place at the inception of the craft beer revolution. Players auction over brewing ingredients, brew their signature line of craft beers, and compete for city and regional area control! The game has continued to grow including selling out of inventory at GenCon 2016. This project was a wonderful ride and we owe a huge thanks to our backers.

MEET THE DESIGNER

From Ryan Lambert - I started gaming when I was little, especially with my Dad. We played the standards like Monopoly, Risk, Pay Day, and Careers. Eventually, we discovered games like Catan and Agricola and the collection has gotten out of hand since then. My favorite game right now is Pandemic Legacy. It’s cliche, but the experience is just too good. A close second would be Imperial Assault or Blood Rage. 

I started designing games a couple years ago because I love to create and explore themes and mechanics. Truck Off started with theme. Food trucks are abundant in the Twin Cities and the idea of owning one has always appealed to me. After so many iterations, I love how clean the design of Truck Off ended up with a good mix of strategy and luck. It’s a great casual game that scales well for groups and I hope you have as much fun with it as I have.

MEET THE PROJECT CREATOR

Still a small outfit, Adam and Chris from Adam's Apple Games are eager to continue to grow in the gaming industry.  We're engaged in this community, and will continue to deliver awesome projects and give our commitment and energy back in return. We write our final rules in as a female lead player. Check us out from Gen Con 2016, and we're pumped to announce we'll be back at Gen Con 2017! 

MEET THE ARTIST

John Ed de Vera on Instagram

John specializes in a unique paper craft artwork style.  This means literally cutting paper and then photographing his work.  This is a super unique style that captures depth and shadows making his pieces look unbelievably real.  He is a master at his craft, hands down.

Risks and challenges

"Anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing." This is one of those things, but making new things is also tough! This is our second campaign and we're putting our experience making happy backers to work again with this campaign.

I will communicate along the way. You'll know if anything unexpected happens and do my best to make it right. I strive to deliver on time against project deadlines and to avoid unexpected shipping delays. Game play is solid with little to no tweaks expected. Artwork is paid for and final files are on track for completion before the end of the project.

Thanks so much for checking out our project and helping us make the "American Dream on Wheels" come to life.
