About this project
What is Pickle?
Pickle is an elimination style card game that can be played with 2-18 players. Based on a 100-year-old game called Agurk, Pickle has several variations that make game play unpredictable and challenging. A 54-card deck with custom characters designed to help learn the game. The ideal game is 4-6 players and generates a lot of laughter with table talk like “Stick’n like a chicken”, “Puppy on the porch” and “Sanbag’n” and power plays like “The Jam”, “The train” and “Da Jokas”. The game play can reduce a player from Hero to Zero in an instant and surprise another player that assumed a loss. Always remember “The Fuggins” usually leads to getting “Pickled”!
You know it is a GREAT card game when the card or cards you lay can frustrate the person to the left or right of you. I love how you can change your strategy and completely change the focus of the game. An awesome late night game with friends that always ends with waking someone up with roars of laughter. If you're a vengeful card player this game is for you. -David D. (Iowa City, IA)
What is the project?
This project is to create 250 or more Deluxe Pickle sets. The Deluxe Pickle set comes with everything needed to play and score the game. Included in the Pickle jar is a custom deck of cards with printed characters to help learn the game, a bag of green chips and a bag of yellow chips, (6) reference cards showing the card strength and point values, a travel bag that will hold everything you need to take the game on the road, instructions, and a dealer button showing sequence of play.
Pickle is fun and addictive!! Great for a game night with friends! -Joe P. (New Kent, VA)
We have already developed the deluxe game set, but lack the funds to produce them in quantity. Fully funded and we successfully get the game to 250 or more people. If Pickle is strongly supported we would be able to pursue an App for iPhone/iPad and Android.
The Pickle Card Game has been a wonderful game to play when we have friends over! We can play it all night long! Nice alternative to Poker! My friends are now asking me where to purchase the game. -Tommy L. (Chicago, IL)
What if funding is exceeded?
All additional funds will be spent in the pursuit of an iPhone/iPad & Android app. Shipping is included in the reword cost, each level has a US and an International reward. The more support Pickle gets the closer to an App we get and Deluxe sets also include a download IF an App is accomplished.
Naming the characters
The name you give to the character will be printed below the character on all cards that apply. The name must be approved and may not contain profanity or serve any agenda. The name can be your name, your child’s name, a pets name or anything you want to make up.
The character names will be announced on picklecards.com and on facebook.com/PickleCards. You may provide namesake information if you choose to be posted with the character. The right to name a character does not include any cards, so remember to also select one of the rewards that does include either a deck of cards or the Deluxe set.
This T-shirt is in production as a proof. Final design of the shirt is subject to change and there may be multiple back images. All backers are welcome to submit a design idea and reduced runs of multiple designs may be possible.
US shipping is included in rewards. Add $5 for Canada and $10 for other.
All pledges to name a character will include a deck of cards!
If you are pledging for the right to name a character, but would also like cards or the Deluxe set:
1) Select the reward for the character you wish to name.
2) Change your pledge to the total of both rewards
2) Send me a message explaining which game reward option you wish to be added.
What about a Deluxe set + 2 decks?
1) Select the Deluxe reward, pledge total for both rewards, send me a message explaining.
This is entirely subject to the rules of kickstarter. I have asked for clarification, but this answer is subject to the rules of kickstarter.
Select either of the characters, then send me a message regarding the second.
I will delete the other, then create a reward for both characters.
You will then switch your reward to the reward that includes all the characters you wish to name.
I will then delete the reward for the first character.
