Games Made From Everyday Things - The Book
A book chock-full of games that you can make and play with things you find lying around.
What's It All About?
We’re surrounded by stuff, all the time, there’s loads of stuff. Wouldn't it be great if you could turn these things into fun. With Games Made From Everyday Things - The Book, you can!
Rainy days, sunny days, srainy days and runny days, this book will keep you hugely entertained whatever the weather. There's even advice and suggestions if you want to make your own games.
A book of games you can make and play from things you find lying around. A book to inspire and engage, this isn't just about playing games, it's also about making them. Showing the world that you don't need special devices or custom widgets to create something fresh, fabulous and fun.
The book will features games made from bottle caps, pebbles, cardboard tubes, pegs, business cards, string, blue tacky stuff that's trademarked and lolly sticks.
A bit of craft and a whole ton of fun.
Publishing a book isn't cheap, not when you want it to be a fantastic book that you'll cherish forever. I've designed the games, that's the bit I'm good at, but making a book will take some professional advice and some quality materials.
This will be a magnificent beauty of a book, where every page is a delight of crafty gaming goodness. Each game is a fun fiesta, like this one:
Life's too complicated a lot of the time, so I've kept the rewards simple too. Take a look over there on the right, I think you'll enjoy my honest, stripped down approach.
This campaign is coming to you from New Zealand, which is quite a long way from most parts of the world, which is why there's a $20 shipping fee and on the physical rewards. I'm soaking up some of the cost, but I can't take it all, I'm sorry about that.
Risks and challenges
The biggest risk is that I have an idea that I absolutely can't leave out of the book and need to develop in the last minute before printing. You might get the book a little bit later then, but there'll be more in it.
Really, there aren’t any risks: The book is written, but no you can’t have a peak at it, I want this to be all splendiferously presented to you in total glory, that's why I need to run this Kickstarter campaign.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
