About

Here is a video link to a Dragon's Den video for FingerShot Hockey

About US (Brian and my two sons Kieran and Noah)

We, my sons and I, have always worked together to do one major family project each year.  I feel that these 'family projects' have brought us closer together but have also taught us to work together, to help each other out and to problem solve but have also showed them real world skills (incorporation a company, getting online quotes, making plans, putting together game packages and selling to potential customers). 

FingerShot Hockey was created on 'family game night' as we were bored with checkers.  It was an instant success amongst their friends but got banned in their daycare as all the kids kept loosing checkers while playing FingerShot Hockey.  As you can see, it is not as easy as it looks, despite playing the game for a long time they still have trouble scoring a goal.  In fact, it has taken up to 20 tries to get a goal and although, I am reigning champion, they began to kick my but.  Another lesson learned, go out when on top!

Together, as a family project, we incorporated the company 'Extradimensional Games Enterprise Limited because the name         'Blue Turtle Productions was gone.

We received a CopyRight- 2007 for 'FingerShot Hockey'

We pitched the game to the NHL! 

We are proud to say, if nothing else, that we received a phone call from the NHL in 2007 in regards to our game.  Unfortunately, we did not have distribution, were not manufactures and did not have any financial backing,  hence the license agreement was put on hold :(

Dragons Den- attempted multiple times to get onto the show.

2008- manufactured game pieces and sold 2000 games as test market

What do we want.  We want to make a shelf worthy version of FingerShot Hockey, one that can be sold in the big box stores.  Eventually, we would like to launch an NHL licensed version of the game.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is to manufacture a quality product that we are capable of getting into the big box stores. We have found that manufacturer.

I have located a huge manufacturer that can complete the desired version of the game. Solved the issue, know it will sell, just have to get the funding together to make it a reality.
