The Premise is Simple. The Strategy is Schadenfreude.

Schadenfreude (noun) - enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others

Hogger Logger is as simple as guessing Higher or Lower. That's also why it's called "Hogger Logger", because "Higher Lower" just wouldn't sound as good.

As the “guesser”, you must guess whether the next number card is higher or lower while using the cards in your hand to either help yourself or hurt your opponents. But watch out! Your opponents can also play cards and steal cards to change your odds.

The round starts with four face down cards. You win by being the player to correctly guess the last remaining card. Here's the tricky part: only one player can be the guesser and each time there is an incorrect guess the guesser rotates one spot to the left! 

In Hogger Logger, you must know when to swine-and-dine your opponents and when to cut them down. Make your guess, knock on wood, and go hog wild in this exciting game of highs and lows.

Stretch Goal ($12,000) UNLOCKED - Action Deck Artwork 

Congrats! We did it! The Action Deck artwork has been unlocked.

Watch the video below as Shawn teaches you how to play Hogger Logger (and offers some tips along the way):

Noobsource: "It's a great game that we enjoyed playing during our family game night, but could be just as enjoyable casually with friends and maybe a few adult beverages as well."

Today in Board Games: "This game is fast and FUN FUN FUN to play! The kids loved it, the adults wanted to play it and everyone had a blast."

Bower's Game Corner: "Hogger Logger can be a great educational tool. I'm a teacher myself and I'm always looking for games that will help with children... I definitely plan on playing this with younger kids and I definitely plan on helping my son learn higher/lower concepts with this game."

Purple Pawn: "It was easy enough for my 4 year old to play with us, and the kids really got into the whole guessing/playing cards/guessing aspect of the game…It’s a fun game for the family to play without too much of a time commitment to both play and learn.”

Geek on Radio: "I taught it to my 6 year old daughter, and now I have to play it almost every day...this simple game packs a huge amount of fun."

Crit Confirm: "Hogger Logger has the potential to become a family classic next to other popular games like Uno or Phase 10."

Tom T: "I am fully expecting this game to be found on the same shelves as Fluxx, UNO, Apples to Apples and Magic the Gathering. Yes, it's that good."

Risks and challenges

Any independently developed project has a plethora of risks and challenges associated with them, and a Kickstarter campaign is no exception. This is our first game and as such it is our baby. We have watched it grow over the last two years from a silly game we used to play with friends, to this well-received game ready to be enjoyed by thousands of game players around the world.

Because this game is our baby we have taken every precaution to ensure that you will be delivered a quality product that we have advertised here. The artwork you see is what you will get. Our manufacturer AdMagic has a track record of success which takes a huge weight off our minds and shoulders. In addition, we will be hand wrapping and individually shipping each and every product straight to your door so you can be confident that you will be getting exactly what you asked for.

There will always be various factors that we cannot anticipate. In these situations we ask for patience and understanding. We have your best interests in mind, as you are the investors who will have made our dream a reality and we will try our best to deliver your product in the most efficient and highest quality way possible.

We will do everything in our power to get this game into your hands during the month of December. In the event of any unexpected delays, we will let you know immediately. We hold ourselves to a high standard and will always maintain a direct line of communication with our customers. Thank you for believing in us and we look forward to adding our game to your collection.
