About

To Kill a Stickman...

Death of a Stickman can be play many ways with different house rules or variations added.  The basic premise goes something like this: 

1. A scenario card is drawn.  (Ex. Giant Insect)
2. Players draw a death scenario on a randomized stick figure (timed to add more intensity)
3. A judge determines the winner based on the most gruesome, funny, artist, or <INSERT ANY OTHER CRITERIA> drawing.
4. Repeat until sides are sore from laughing.

Rewards!

We'd love to take your pledges for lower amounts.  Feel some joy in your heart for a $5.00 donation or be listed as a contributor on www.deathofastickman.com for only $10.00.  Either way will make me smile.  For a larger pledge I would LOVE to get you a copy of the game as well!

Obviously timelines can shift but our major goal is to get out the game by the 2014 holiday season (what a great gift it would make)!  At minimum we want you to be able to play this with friends, family, and Santa in December.  Ideally we want it in your hand to play after eating turkey in November.

Here are the contributing levels that will secure you a copy of the game at release!

What we need.

When it comes to production costs, we have the good ol' chicken and egg scenario.  Before establishing a great customer base, low production runs are expensive.  That doesn't allow for much profit to cover improvements, equipment, or revenue to stick back into a larger production run.  Without an affordable game we can't establish a good customer base... and round and round we go.

If we meet our goals, funds will go to purchasing bulk supplies, equipment, printing costs, and dozens of other little things that go into making a game.  Getting of on the right foot will allow us to make Death of a Stickman affordable to everyone.  The equipment and systems we establish will make expansion packs affordable as well. 

Consider "Kicking it foward" with http://kickingitforward.org!!!

What's done.

After saying to myself "Hey, I think I'll make a party game today", I spent the next few months lining up the various components of the game, working on a prototype, and testing the concept.  We have tried to anticipate potential problems and work out the many logistics.  From printing details to shipping costs, we have worked out the bulk of the details.  We'll keep fine tuning the game itself until we learn the outcome of our Kickstarter campaign. 

Risks and challenges

If we get funding, the process will start picking up quickly if we want to meet our holiday 2014 release schedule. Production times for various game elements will make us nervous until the final items are in our hands but we have tried to add cushion to that time table.

Depending on how many games we need for the initial release, we may experience some sleepless night trying to produce, package, and ship the game. If we get funded, we owe it to our backers to have sleepless nights in order to get you your rewards. I'll be personally backing the caffeine and sugar required to make that happen!
