Components

Nogginate comes with three decks of 72 cards each (216 cards). Each deck contains 54 customized playing cards and 18 cheat cards. It can be played with two to six people. An additional fourth deck can be added to make play easier when playing with three teams or when playing with three or five individuals.

The cards have four suits, like standard playing cards. However, each suit is assigned its own color with a unique design. Each card has a point value, which is shown on each card.

The numbers of the cards run from zero to ten. There are two freeze cards, two bonus cards and six jokers.

Rules

Nogginate can be played with 2 to 6 players. When playing with 2, 3 or 5 players, everyone plays individually. When playing with 4 or 6 players, you play with a partner.

The object of the game is to reach a score of 10,000 points. The first team that reaches or exceeds this score at the end of a round wins the game. Alternatively, you can choose to play a set number of rounds, and the winner is the team that has the most points at the end of the last round.

You score points with Noggis and Nates. A Noggi is a set of cards of the same suit which are consecutive in rank. A Nate is a set cards of the same rank.

You use strategy to determine when and how to pick up the discard pile, when and how to block the discard pile, and when and how to use the various cheat cards you have. Your goal is always to increase and improve your Noggis and Nates and to prevent your opponents from doing the same.

See the complete rules on the Nogginate website.

How We'll Use the Funds

We'll use the funds to build an inventory of Nogginate and fulfill orders from our Kickstarter supporters.

We just received our first copy of Nogginate from the printer, and it's beautiful! We're excited to get more made.

We've already created the art files, and the printer has shown they can produce a very high quality product in a very short period of time. It's just a matter of telling them to make more and being able to pay for it.

 

 

Risks and challenges

I've been a product development manager for several large companies and have developed 17 products that brought in more than $77 million the year they were launched.

I don't really see any risks or challenges in completing the Nogginate project. It's simply a matter of telling the printer to make more.
