About this project
Zombie Game Glasses!
When we had the idea we were excited, but when we started putting it together we got even more worked up. The concept for our game was simple and elegant, but still it needed more...and that more is you!
The game Zombies is a fun and simple drinking game that can be played with anyone who likes liquid. It makes a great party game and is something that anyone can jump in on at any point. The game revolves around the classic mechanic of tossing ping pong balls at peoples' glasses, with rules that give a nod to the undead in all of us. The rules are elegantly simple and printed right on the functional 16oz American-style pint glass. No longer do you need to be reciting rules from memory. Plus it looks nifty too.
The glass is a 16oz standard American-style pint glass manufactured and printed in the USA, featuring art designed by our very own, and might we add quite talented, art director. The glass includes with it a premium ping pong ball for all your game play needs, and weighs in at approximately 11oz (~315grams) and features a thick standing base to add support.
The Rules (as they are printed right on the glass!)
-Starting player is the zombie.
-The zombie bounces a ping-pong ball at an opponent's glass.
-If the ball hits your glass, drink. If the ball lands in your glass, drink twice.
Both result in you becoming the zombie.
-Zombies try until they make a shot, taking a drink for every miss.
Where You Come In
You are the ones that can make this happen. Without your support we may never launch this product, and we need you to let us know you like what we do and want us to do more. If this project is successful it could lead to the future production of many more games like it that may involve even cooler concepts. So if you like this idea, tell us, spread the word, and share some awesome!
But Wait! I Don't Drink!
To be honest, the majority of our company does not drink recreationally. Some of us don't drink at all, but we still love this idea! Why? Because a drinking games should be about the game being fun, not the liquid of choice. We made this game with everyone in mind and, we assure you, it is an incredibly fun and social game with any beverage.
Thank you so much for your support!
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges we face here are small, but worth mentioning. To have a successful print run we need very precise printing done within a limited print area. While this task falls to our printer now that the design is finalized, it is possible that a small error in printing could set this project back several weeks.
Another challenge may be in shipping. Shipping challenges with glass are numerous, but lucky for us there are many good shipping solutions for us to choose from. Shipping costs can fluctuate and things may take time to move out if we get a huge number of supporter (which is never a bad problem to have.) We are confident that we will be able to meet our shipping demands with little to no hassle.
With these small risks in mind, we're confident we will be able to produce a great product people will love.The only thing we need now is the support of great folks like you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
