The Final Product

The final game is basically as shown in this campaign. We have the following changes to make from the prototype if we are successfully funded: 

  • All final cards will be press printed on 310gsm linen stock.
  • Box will be professionally manufactured and high quality matte finished.
  • We want to update the instructions based on feedback from reviewers to make them easier to read and understand.
  • If stretch goals are met we will add the items to the box as outlined.
  • We are keeping the options open for slight modifications on design, components, etc., based on feedback throughout the campaign and as more reviews are completed. 

NOTE: all backers will be updated as to any changes we make to design for feedback. Have a suggestion? Let us know and if we take it into consideration we will credit you for it.

THA Games is a division of a greater company called The Humble Approach Collective. THA is a collective of designers, producers, and artists, of varying fields of abilities, who see projects through from the idea to completion. Currently, there are currently seven contributors working on a number of projects from games to films to books. 

To date, projects consist of ideas springing up from within the collective but the eventual goal is to produce the ideas of other designers.

This will be a video that will explain how we made this game from start to finish. We wished we had a resource like this when we started this game so we wanted to pass it on to anyone who wants to know more about how to make their own game.

This app will include free expansions to this game and all other THA Games in the future as well as alternate rules, rules for younger people, rules for different sized groups, a random pattern generator, a challenge pattern generator, etc. Our goal is to help you get more out of this game for free.

The LED bulb will be a wild card. LED's can be any colour and so can this bulb. 

Event cards are a new idea brought to us by John Chafe (Thanks for the great idea John!). Event cards will be things like a "power outage" and "nasty neighbour" cards, which will effect game play and will be an expansion to this game. We plan to make many event cards that will be randomly placed in the deck for a nice added surprise while you think you have it all together.

The most requested add-on to the game so far: make it up to 6 players. When we were calculating the reward levels for the Kickstarter campaign a few months back we realized that we could not make that many cards per game whilst still having a fair price, unless we sold a lot of games. The game was originally designed for 2-6 players and was tested that way. We would love to make this standard in every game so please tell everyone you know about this game so we can reach this level!

Risks and challenges

Throughout the past 3-4 months of creating this game we've strived to eliminate as much risk as possible by going through every aspect of the campaign if successful. We achieved this by getting exact dollar amount quotes and assessing every expense, possibility, and foresaw every obstacle we could and determined the appropriate solution.

Our team at The Humble Approach Collective (THA) works on producing many different projects but have decided to prioritize Christmas Lights until completion, which not only gives us the time and effort we need to complete it and also allows us to prepare for future projects after this one.

To be transparent, our greatest risk is the economy. We've determined a number of possible places for production but with economic ups & downs and national dollar value fluctuations we run the risk of reducing our net gain to pay some of our preparation expenses for future projects. The greatest issue that would arise from this is that we wouldn't have enough capital to continue on to the next project efficiently. One option to overcome this was to increase the pledge amounts but we decided to do all we could to keep the price of the game reasonable and instead take on some of the risk ourselves. Another place where we attempt to lower any risks is by increasing the goal amount so that we can order a large number of games upon success. This means the game will be much cheaper if we ordered 1,000 instead of 500, for instance.

It is worth noting that this risk completely goes away as we reach the stretch goals. If more than just successful, our plan is to 'share the wealth' so to speak by giving away free items in the form of app aided expansions (not just limited to this game), more cards for increased player count, etc. (see the stretch goal section).

This game is our creation and we look forward to sharing it with others. The feedback we received so far has been amazing to say the least and we cannot wait to hear how you liked it!
