Cow Tiger Santa Claus is a road trip game for friends and family. Tuck it in the center console of the car, the glove compartment, or even that strap on the visor that you never use. Game design by Ben Pinchback and Matt Riddle, with storybook quality art by Felicia Cano.

Cow Tiger Santa Claus is destined to become a staple road trip game. At the start of a trip, the group will draw a card from each of three categories (easy, medium, hard) and they will keep their eyes peeled for School Buses, Bears, Superheroes, and more. There are many ways to play, so this game is perfect for everyone from families working together to trash-talking friends competing for bragging rights. Whether you have just two people or everyone in the car playing, we’re sure you’ll be grateful for a break from license plate bingo.

The game consists of 15 item cards, rules/travel log. It's technically a "micro game". It will be packaged in a small vinyl wallet, perfect for taking it on the go. It's pocket-sized, portable and protective... and has proven itself with or growing line of wallet games.

The backside of the rules sheet is a travel log to remember your trips and your games!

You can print the game and play, TODAY! It's 2 pages and just black ink.

This will be the 11th(!!!) Button Shy Wallet Game, and the fourth of 2016. We have a new game coming each month in 2016. Each game has its own quirky thing going on. You can purchase these today at our website http://www.buttonshygames.com or you can pledge for a package deal here and save some money in return for having to wait 45-60 days for production.

Package Deal - $18 - Save $2: Cow Tiger Santa Claus plus any one of the following games - Avignon: A Clash of Popes, Cunning Folk, Smoke & Mirrors, Ninja: Silent But Deadly, Pickpockets or a second copy of Cow Tiger Santa Claus.

Make your own cards! For $3 you will receive six blank cards to make your own goals. These can be specific to your area or where you are heading. Add as many as you would like to change things up on each trip!

We have 3 bonus card stretch goals planned and will be revealing them throughout the campaign. Each has an alternate play style and will fit right in the wallet. 

Why pledge now and not buy later?

Button Shy is a small company (REALLY SMALL) trying to do big and different things. You won't see these in your local store on Cool Stuff for cheaper than what you see here. You most likely won't see them at your local store at all. And without Kickstarter funding, you most likely won't see these games in print.

Art is expensive and we believe in high quality art. Short run games are ridiculously expensive, but for us it's a way to get games into your hands in a reasonable time frame (45 days as opposed to 6 months to a year - or longer!). We're doing this in a way that is different than your standard mass production game. We order in parts and hand assemble the games into wallets. So there is a personal touch to each of these. So thank you for your pledge as it makes every bit of this possible.

Shipping Notes

International shipping is expensive and we apologize. We aren't in the position to pretend like it doesn't exist, or absorb it into the pledges as bigger companies can do.  Unfortunately with small games, international shipping can sometimes exceed the cost of the game. On the plus side, our games ship within 2 months of the end of the Kickstarter, and sometimes, even sooner. If shipping seems high, our timelines, print and plays and package deals should help make up for it.

We use USPS International first class and the prices are as follows:

ONE GAME: US - $3, CAN - $10, INT - $14

TWO GAMES: US - $3, CAN - $12, INT - $16

Risks and challenges

We've done our homework and have as much ready as possible before even launching the Kickstarter, but there are always challenges once it's completed. There may be factory delays or errors, which can cause delays for fulfillment. We've had this issue previously and managed to turn it into a positive thing by providing extra content in the final version of the product.
