About

THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORT

Everyone at 2GeeksGaming want to say Thank You for all the love and support that we have received throughout the campaign. Without that nothing would be possible. Even though we did not fund this time... Paws will return. We are going to retool the campaign a bit and come back with a much lower funding goal, a quicker production time, and still offer most of the same great benefits, like the "Immortalize Your Pet." So if you wanted the game... you will be able to get the game soon.

As for our upcoming titles... we have a series of card games that we are very excited about. The first that will be released is a series of Playing Cards (our take on the traditional poker deck with unique themes) and the second being a series of Gaming Cards (original and new games directly from our brains). We think you will love both of them equally. Please keep an eye out over the next few months for our next release. 

Please keep checking back here on Kickstarter under the 2geeksgaming bio or go to our website for new and upcoming information.

Thanks again,

Paws: Devious Dogs versus Crafty Cats is an simple to learn, easy to play, 2-8 player, strategic, casual card game in the style of great classic games like Rummy, Uno, Hearts, and Crazy Eights.

You send us a picture of your Dog or Cat and we will have our artist take that photo of your pet and draw it into a cartoon version... appropriate for the game of course. Then it will be placed onto a card, along with your pets name, and put into to game as a permanent playing card. You will of course receive the Deluxe Edition of the game and ALL Unlocked Stretch Goals.

Once we had the theme of Dogs versus Cats for the game, we knew that we wanted the art to have that tongue and cheek humor that we all grew up on as kids. 

So, we are proud to announce that the art in the game is completely original and will be done by the fantastic… Anton Brand. He is a freelance illustrator specializing in cartoon and comic artwork. Anton has a beautiful and unique style that perfectly captures what we wanted to see for our game. Please take the time to check out his website, as we feel you will love his work as much as we do. 

Here is a look at what the art style in the game will be...

Other than having your normal looking dogs versus cat type art… we also wanted to see artwork for the stuff that we all love. We are calling these "Theme Decks" and they will be available once we reach certain Stretch Goals. They add a whole new spin to the game with all new beautiful cards.

WHAT IS THE KICKSTARTER "DELUXE EDITION?"  

The Deluxe Edition we are offering here on Kickstarter is an Exclusive version only for you backers. It comes with...

Two Decks, totaling 108 Cards, that make up ONE copy of the Kickstarter Deluxe Edition. 

WHY ONLY A "DELUXE EDITION?"

So, you might be asking yourself... why is there only a Deluxe Edition of the game?

Well, the Deluxe Edition we are offering here on Kickstarter is an exclusive version only for you backers. It has Two Decks (104 Colored Cards, 1 Devious Dog Card, 1 Crafty Cat Card, 1 Directional Movement Card, 1 Bonus Card, 1 Rule Book), has two different colors per deck for a total of four, plays up to 8 players, has exclusive Kickstarter only cards, basic and advanced rules, artwork available only here, and special packaging.

There will be a Standard Version of the game that will be sold in retail stores, but it has many less features.

The retail version of the game, when it hits store shelves, will only be One 54 Card Deck (52 Colored Cards, 1 Devious Dog, 1 Directional Movement Card, 1 Rule Book), only has 2 colors in the deck.

We wanted you to have your say in things.To feel like you were helping make the game you wanted to play. So we came up with some easy to achieve Stretch Goals that are very cool and unique. 

 Why Should I Back Your Campaign?  

Our company, 2GeeksGaming, was formed with the idea that games should and could be fun for everyone. For both the casual gamer and the hard core gamer alike. Games that are easy to learn, easy to teach, and are a lot of fun to play. Games that can be simple in nature... at first glance, but have those hidden strategies that you might not have seen. 

Everyone involved with 2GeeksGaming has been playing games or making games for the last 20 years. When you back a game that we develope, you not only would be helping with the creation of that game, but you will also be supporting our company as we move forward. This means everything to us. This pushes us to make bigger and better games for you to enjoy.  

This is why we are starting out with Paws. It is just one of those games that felt really special. Everybody that we showed it to absolutely loved how it played. It was one of those games that just clicked with everyone and in every possible way. Then, once the theme of Dogs versus Cats was added into the mix, we knew we could no longer keep it just to ourselves and that is why we have come to you... the backers on Kickstarter.  

When you pledge our game, not only will you be getting a game that you will enjoy playing, but you will also be involved with how the final game turns out. You can help bring your game to life.

We thought long and hard before we launched this campaign. Getting all the right pieces in place to get the game made came many months of work. Tentative time frames have been locked in for EVERYTHING. This includes the Deluxe Edition and all Stretch Goals that we have in mind. The whole kit and kaboodle as they say.

So rest assured... that barring any unforeseen circumstances that may arise or stuff that is out of our control, we should have the game in your hands by the listed date.

Since we made the game price the absolute lowest it could be for you, there was no way to exclude the shipping costs. We would have loved to not charge for this, but there was just no way to do so. 

We have Paws set at the lowest possible price point just to cover our cost to get the game to you, but these are just estimates. Shipping prices change all the time and some countries rates may vary, and may require additional shipping costs. This is also dependent on what will be included with each pledge as more and more stretch goals become unlocked and are added. We do not expect these rates to vary much, but if something does change we will let everyone know via an update.

Risks and challenges

Let’s talk about risks and challenges. We have made every effort to have things ready to move forward once we receive our funding. All projects though contain the potential for unexpected surprises and delays… and of course we can't predict every little thing that might go wrong (delays with art, manufacturing, shipping, acts of god, dog ate my stuff) as some things are out of our control. That being said, we have allowed plenty of time to get ALL things done by our listed time frame. 2GeeksGaming is committed to staying in contact with you throughout the process. We will try to have weekly or bi-weekly updates for you.
