Thanks for stopping by my project and checking it out.  A few years ago I was energized by the support of Kickstarter backers to create my first book, No Sweets For Santa.  Through their support I was able to create the book and begin my quest in encouraging people to leave pizza for Santa on Christmas eve, instead of cookies and milk.  You can learn more about my previous book project by clicking here.

My goal with this project is to help reinforce this fun family tradition by offering a card game that goes along with the book, but can be played year round.  With the help of the talented artist, Mark Mariano, I am able to bring this colorful and fun game to you this year.

Game Play

The No Sweets for Santa card game has three levels of play so it can be enjoyed by any age.  My goal was to make the game fun and give it the ability to grow along with members of your family.

Here's a quick video that helps to explain the games.

Shipping Details

I know the last thing you want to do is rush to the post office during the holiday season, so let me give you a hand.  Since the game and book are best enjoyed before Christmas, I am willing to ship your reward to the domestic location of your choice if you are purchasing this as a gift.  This allows you the ability to give the ultimate gift this holiday season.  I have coordinated with the printer and prepared myself to ship your rewards out by mid December.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge of this project will be the shipping deadlines to international backers. The holidays are typically busier and more challenging to get rewards processed, but I have already done all of the footwork to get things pulled together quickly after the project end date and then shipped in time for Christmas.
My experience with fulfilling rewards on Kickstarter projects is extensive and I do everything to make sure backers are satisfied.
