About this project
Back on May 25, 1977 when Star Wars first hit theaters the world as we knew it changed. Shortly after its release my aunt took me at 7 years old to see it for the first time. My young mind was blown from the opening crawl and this book's creation started on that day. Now 35 years later this book is finally starting to come to fruition.
Star Wars has millions and millions of fans all over the world....
So why do we love Star Wars? Because of the movies right? For the most part everyone falls in love with Star Wars because of the movies. We might love a lot of things in Star Wars, or if you're like me pretty much everything, but the movies are what started it all for us.
This trivia book is based on the movies. This volume is based solely on the "Original Trilogy" with 1,138 trivia questions. The plan is for two more volumes on the "Prequel Trilogy" and the "Clone Wars" animated series.
This book is for all ages, but was created for the first and second Star Wars generation, to pass along the love of the movies to our third generation and beyond. This book will help to excite the younglings who have only known the "Clone Wars". Watching these movies, they will become more intrigued as they search for answers.
But still why this book? We have seen many trivia books in the past, but they all had one thing in common. All of them have behind the scenes and expanded universe tough questions. That is great for a geek like me. But not for my sister or nephew. Anytime we would play Star Wars Trivial Pursuit or play with another trivia book, I would always dominate. Why? Because I knew all the obscure behind the scenes answers and they didn't. This book in my opinion levels the playing field. When you sit down and play with friends and family, everyone has an equal chance of winning so to speak. Let's face it we don't just read Star Wars trivia books, we play them like a game.
Jump to the bottom of the page for a good sample of trivia questions from this book.
Cover art for this book was designed by Star Wars artist Joe Hogan (http://joehoganart.com/) and as part of the rewards you can get your own art print of this cover art in a very nice 11 X 14 size, perfect for framing.
Why and what are we helping to fund:
Publishing cost, which includes all the aspects of getting this book printed and in stores on and off line. Promotions, if nobody knows the book is out no one will be able to play with it. Anyone who has published a book knows how expensive and difficult it is to get this done. I have personally funded the start of the book's publication, but to be honest I do need your help to get this finished and out to the public. I have funded projects before on kick starter and each time I truly felt I was a part of that project. So in other words you are not just helping to fund this project you are joining the publication team.
To thank you for joining the publication team with this project, I am offering up some great rewards. You can have your name actually printed in the book to show your fandom. Get signed copies of the book. Get "Sarlacc Pit" podcast t-shirts (only available here and on our show as gifts), or get art prints of the cover art.
Shirts come in black men's sizes S-XXL and women's sizes S- XXL. Both styles designed by Joe Hogan. Two designs to choose from below:
Men's t-shirts come in Black, sizes S-XXL. This relaxed fit cotton t-shirt for men has a seamless rib collar with double-needle cover-stitching, shoulder-to-shoulder taping, double-needle sleeve and bottom hem. The shirt is made from 100% pre-shrunk cotton and has a relatively light fabric weight of 5.3 oz.
Women's t-shirts come in Black, sizes S-XXL. The relaxed fit t-shirt for women has a narrow neck rib, tailored sleeves and a redesigned cut for a better ladies fit. With plenty of extra room, this shirt is ideal for most body types. The fabric is made from 100% pre-shrunk cotton (deep heather is 50% cotton/50%polyester) and has a fabric weight of 5.4 oz.
How does kick starter work?:
Plain and simple: Your donation isn't processed until the end date and we reach our goal. If we don't reach our goal, you are not charged and we get nothing. So we hope you will join our publication team.
