While boardgame design has come a long way over the past 15 years, there has not been much innovation in board game componentry. It's a never ending stream of wood, ore, gold, stone, meeples, cubes, orcs and zombies. Yawn... Unicorn Poo™ changes that! Inject some sweet smelling, sparkly, rainbow magic into your tabletop gaming sessions!
If you buy one Unicorn Poo™ you can:
- Keep it in your pocket. A fanciful talisman with possible extravagant magical properties.
- Make a piece of jewelry.
- Make a Christmas ornament.
- Leave it on your desk as a reminder that no matter how crappy life gets, you can still find beauty.
- Use it as a first player marker for any game that uses a first player marker.
- Use it as a turn tracking marker for any game that use a turn tracking marker.
- Use it as a gentle AP reminder by placing it in front of a player who is taking too long on their turn.
If you buy a whole set of Unicorn Poo™ you can:
- Replace a boring resource in a Eurogame.
- Replace cliché enemy minis.
- Use them as your own personal meeple upgrades.
- Use them as health counters.
- Use them as victory point counters.
- On game night, let the winner use Unicorn Poo™ in the next game as a reward for victory.
- Easter egg hunts are fun, but Unicorn Poo™ hunts are a truly magical experience!
You get the idea, below are some examples:
Please Note: The below photos are prototype poos, the final product will be high-quality manufactured pieces.
Do you think we could successfully pitch Unicorn Poo™ to a boardgame publisher, or an investor?
No, we don't either.
We can only produce about 350 handmade rewards. So in order to spread the joy of Unicorn Poo™ to more people, we need to have it manufactured. To do this we need to place an order of at least 10,000 poos.
That's a lot of poo.
Unicorn Poo™ will be made out of resin, vinyl, polymer clay or plastic. They may not be exactly like what you see in the video. But we will make sure to pick only the very best poo to send to you!
Manufacturing a poo we can be proud of will take money.
So we NEED YOU!
There will be two sizes of Unicorn Poo™. The small size will be around 17mm in diameter at the base and about 17mm high, and the large poo will be about 25mm in diameter and about 25mm high. Handmade figurines will be quite chunky at about 35mm in diameter.
Add $5 to any pledge level to include an enchanting, golden, satin top, sequin, drawstring sack with tassels. This bag is 3.5" wide and over 5" tall.
Unicorn Poo It!
