The reviews are unanimous! People love Cartoona! Pledge for your copy before the project ends!
"This is a fantastic family game, people are going to love putting the tiles together" -Tom Vasel, The Dice Tower
"Cartoona is an excellent game for families." -Wired .com
"My six year old was thrilled by the look and feel of the game. For the past two days we have left the game out on the table and she has spent time playing by herself building interesting creatures. During game play, she had us all laughing as she decided a new aspect was to discover and mimic the sounds her created creatures would make." -Purple Pawn
"It has a depth and level of direct aggression via the interactions between tiles and cards that may be overlooked by gamers who dismiss it for its whimsical appearance (their loss). I also appreciate the well-written rulebook, which provides well-written and illustrated examples in addition to multiple variants to scale the strategy level appropriately for children and adults." -Games and Grub
"Truly a wonderful game for the family. Do give Cartoona a try if and when you get the chance." -Father Geek
Cartoona is a tile-laying, creature-building game of strategy and chance featuring the whimsical pop art creatures of Robert Burke. The game encourages creativity, strategic thinking and social interaction. Players compete by building colorful, and sometimes hilarious, cartoon creatures from different body part tiles.
Cartoona can be played in singles mode, team mode or even a solitaire mode, and there are three different game variants that will ship in the box: the full game, the basic game and a children's game. These different game variants allow for between 1 to 8 players ages 3 to adult.
We have chosen to use Kickstarter because our dream includes two things:
Bring Cartoona to life, AND retain creative control of the project. We have brought the game through development and testing, but we need capital to get it manufactured and distributed. All the hard work has been done. Game mechanics are solid, artwork is complete, graphic design is complete, and manufacturing is lined up. We will continue to play test hard through the duration of this campaign, so that if funding is successful we can go to print without delay.
We have a wide array of rewards from stickers and signed prints, to an exclusive expansion, to original artwork, and deep discounts on multiple copies. You can nab Cartoona for well under its future MSRP of $34.99, have the game in hand before the general public, and make a dream come true! So please consider jumping in. We think you'll love Cartoona as much as our play testers and we do!

Some Original Artwork Examples
Yes. The Long Necks expansion is a very limited release of just 200 copies. The cost to produce such a low number of expansions has a direct impact on the price per unit. I am offering this to those who believe in the project enough to pledge at a higher level. If Cartoona does well, we may offer a wider release for Long Necks in the future, but it will not be in 2012.
If you want a different size painting than what is in the reward structure, just shoot me a note. I will be glad to do the exact size you want and let you know how much to pledge.
