About

This is a project to launch a fun new board and dice game created by my father, the founder of Donald James Games.The game is called Snap! because it’s exciting, convenient, and fun.  You’ll be able to bring and play Snap! anywhere, and it’s a game that everyone can play.  

You can play LOTS of different games with the board, dice, scorecards, and the cool fold-outs. We've listed just three popular ones here:

  • Elimination
  • Baseball
  • Football

And for kids, it's a great way to "gameify" practicing addition, subtraction, and problem solving. Definitely a great gift for all kids-at-heart, too!

Elimination

Elimination is a stimulating numbers game that’s fun for everyone.It keeps our minds sharp and hearts light and it’s great for teaching kids math, too (grade school and up).  After a single roll, your object is to flip over as many numbered tabs as possible which add up to the number total of both dice.

YOU WIN when you have flipped at least one tab each turn until they are all flipped. It's easier said that done!  Whenever the dice produce a number that cannot be matched equally to one, two or three tabs... you lose, you're out!

There are currently four (4) specific dice games to enjoy which are equally challenging, addictive and fun (good play strategies help and several are provided for your heightened enjoyment). Soon to come are additional games of greater interest and fun! All owners of the "Snap box" will receive these add-on games gratis.

Baseball

Snap’s version of Baseball came from the games dad played with his friends on the sidewalks of New York in the 1950’s.They loved this game of baseball – in fact they even kept statistics and held a neighborhood end-of-summer world series!

Football

Snap! Football is sure to be a favorite with any football fan but especially fantasy football fans right away.This and baseball are played with the cool fold-out boards that come with the dice box.

Play Anywhere!

What’s great is you’ll be able to bring Snap! anywhere and play with anyone or even by yourself.

·Play at lunch

·On a break

·For game night

·On campus

·At a coffee shop

·Even on a plane or in a car.

How it Came to Be

It’s a dream of my dad's to share these games he loves with the rest of the world, but we need your help getting it done.My dad had the idea and sketched it out.He carefully built several prototypes in his garage.He gave them to friends to see what they thought.His computer teacher made the cool animation you see in our video, and his friends all loved it.

When he told me about it I suggested he look to Kickstarter to help get it launched, and I put together this campaign for him.As you can see, we’re creative but we need a little help to really get it done right with professionals.

What the Money is For

The money will be used to

·hire professional artwork and writing for the game itself, the packaging, and the instructions

·and make a cost-effective, minimum number of them, acceptable to most manufacturers.

Risks and challenges

Delays that occur mid-stream are always possible whether an artist, writer, or manufacturer suffers some sort of setback, but having back ups to manufacture, draw, and write in addition to constant communication and status reports once we are funded is the plan to prevent any delays!
