As many of you know, we release a game each month here on Kickstarter (and in connection with our Patreon supporters), and this is our final monthly Kickstarter campaign. In January we are switching to quarterly campaigns, each with three games, which will save on shipping, help combine orders, and overall give some relief after 12 crazy Kickstarter campaigns, 5777 backers (many duplicates, I'm sure as I recognize many of your names each month) and $93,333 raised over 11+ different games/campaigns.

So what is Hot Dogs? Well, it's a fast paced, speed game that I designed with assistance from the artist Marty Cobb. Together we made Wild Cats last year, and we've been itching to return to the form (a light hearted game, that makes you smile, laugh and enjoy the company of others). We've been calling this the spiritual successor to Wild Cats from the start, although the games do play very differently. 

We wanted to end the year on a light note, as the last few months of campaigns have been amazing, and our 1Q trio that launched in January are some of our best games yet.

But we also wanted to end the year with some package deals. I know that some of you have been holding out to save on shipping, so some of these deals will help there. Some of our other deals are HUGE savings on older games, that we are only offering here. So if you have everything, we've got Hot Dogs. If you have nothing, well there's a whole bunch of games here.

And finally, we put together 10 sets of EVERYTHING that we released this year. You'll save over $50 off retail, and a bunch on shipping it all at once. 

Thanks again for an amazing year for Button Shy Games. This was the year that put us on the map. We still have no clue where this map leads to, but we're on it and that's all that counts. 

FIRST UP IS HOT DOGS

It's time for the annual Coney Island Hot Dog Show where competitors worldwide will compete for the coveted title of Wurst In Show!

In Hot Dogs, you will need to craft a variety of frankfurters quickly and accurately using your ingredient cards, but you are working with a head chef that is trying to mess you up. In order to gain a point, you must win a turn, take a detriment card and then win the next turn too. 

If nobody succeeds, the chef scores. Play continues until all players have been chef. To win you have to make 'em fast and make 'em right before the other players ketchup.

Hot Dogs is a 3-5 player game designed by Jason Tagmire with art byMarty Cobb. Gameplay lasts 15 minutes and is recommended for ages 6 and up.

The game consists of:

-12 Ingredient Cards
-6 Hot Dogs Cards-Fold Out Full Color Rules-Wallet Packaging

This is part of our Wallet Line and 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 our growing line of wallet games.

STRETCH GOALS

Here are the stretches! If unlocked, every copy of Hot Dogs will come with one of these cards. PNP copies will get PNP versions.

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.
