It's our last day folks!  What a wild ride it has been!  I didn't think that I would be posting any stretch goals for this project but I am glad to be doing so.  I doubt very much that we will get there, but if we reach $4,500 than anyone who has backed at the $22 stretch goal or higher will be able to choose a custom color scheme for their graveyard!  So imagine a red body with green felt.  Or Blue body and blue felt.  The color options for both the graveyard and the felt bottom are as follows.  Black, White, Red, Green, Blue. 

Thanks everyone for your support, this has been a lot of fun and I have many more ideas for future projects!  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to let me know!

Due to a tremendous amount of feedback since launch I have decided to add additional options.  Option "A" is the Card Graveyard from the video.  Options "B" and "C" are shown in the pictures below.  At the end of the project I will ask in the survey which Card Graveyard you would prefer.

Option "B" comes with four pegs to keep track of all kinds of things!

What is it?

The Modest Magic Card Graveyard is designed to be fun as well as useful.  If you have ever felt like your side of the table needed something "a little extra" to show what you're made of, then this is it.  Guaranteed to make your opponent go "What the heck is that!?!"  (Or, alternatively, "Huh, whats that?") the Card Graveyard also comes with a counter for keeping track of life, or whatever it is that your game requires.  Many card games are played with collectable cards and we have taken that into account by making the card pocket big enough for cards with protectors and lined with felt for cards without them.

 Why Kickstarter?

I have the tools and capability to make these, but only in very small quantities and as a labor of love.  I'd like the Project to accomplish two things.  Firstly, to test the market and see if anyone wants something like this.  And, secondly, If I were to start producing these en masse I would need some additional equipment.

Risks and challenges

I've done everything I can think of to limit any risks. I designed the prototype with production in mind, and kept careful records on the costs associated with making these. One of the most often overlooked aspects of Kickstarter is a lack of preparation in the case of critical over-funding. If that should happen with this project I have taken steps to account for it. Short of death or illness I think I have my bases covered. This is what I do, and I am fully committed to doing it right.
