About The Great States of America
The Great States of America came about due to a combined love of maps and games. This is our second Kickstarter project with a map as the theme.
Initially Great States of America was only the game Border Wars. It was a fun game to play using the states neighbors. We looked at other simple state information such as area, and history to create the following 5 games.
- Bigger the Better (Total area of each state)
- Border Wars (Bordering states)
- Election (Electoral College)
- Line 'Em Up (Bordering states)
- Welcome to the Union (Date the state joined the Union)
One wonderful fact about each game is that they are quick to play. Border Wars can be completed in less than two minutes. That makes it ideal for younger players with short attention spans and classrooms. Another fact is that the players will learn interesting things about the USA without realizing its taking place. Final fact is the games are enjoyed by all ages.
The Great States of America is a wonderful game for educators, parents, and grandparents. That is why we have a special pledge level of BOGO so 50 backers can share the game.
Why we need your help
Watching people enjoy our games we have created is personally gratifying. Taking feedback and tweaking the game so that it is even more fun is exciting for our team. However, we are not publishers. We are two friends with day jobs who love making games.
We need your help to publish this game. We have already taken care of the graphic design, play testing, and editing. Now it is just a matter of printing the cards and putting them in the box. That is why we need you.
The five games are so simple to learn that we were able to put all the rules on one or two playing cards.

Risks and challenges
The graphic design is complete and we are using the same publishing company we used with our last Kickstarter project, so we do not expect any challenges to distribution after the campaign is successful.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
