This book is a collection of all the games we have ever created in our office so we dubbed it, "Office Games". In the book we describe each game, show what tools you need, and explain how to play with basic rules and advanced rules for when they eventually become Olympic sports. Most of the games are very humorous and the whole office should enjoy them.
We will begin by stating what is probably obvious; this is the first book we will have ever authored, drew silly artwork for, if you name it, it’s the first time so bear with us. The book was an idea we scrounged around with to make us millions, but who are we kidding this book will probably sell three copies and it will only be from our mothers who felt bad we spent a lot of time making a book.
I have brought this project on Kickstarter to help with all the costs associated with making a book. I wanted to make the book look as professional as possible while maintaining the humor style I wanted to achieve. The Kickstarter will also help pay the starving artist and buy all the materials we need to custom make all the props for the games to send with the orders of the books. Extra funds will help us create lots of exciting content for the website and videos that will explain all the games in more detail.
Also we apologize now for all the videos. We ended up creating about 30 videos in pursuit of one that would actually kind of describe what we are doing. I will try and post most of them as they are pretty ridiculous. Here are Chopper and Jo Jo getting ready to brainstorm some new games:
So as you read the book I am pretty sure the first thing you will say to yourself is, well these guys are the worst employees in history and must have a ton of free time. Well that offends us dearly and I am not sure I like you anymore reader. But in all honesty, we actually do a ton of work and really don’t even have time to play our own game creations. We have other workers to do that for us. The real story is that we get pretty stressed out as I’m sure many of you out there do, so what do we do to battle this daunting intense pressure placed on us day in and day out? Why, create games that will put a smile on your face and everyone else around of course!
This book is for you if you need a relaxing laugh at work or just want to learn some fun new games that can be played anywhere. We hope you enjoy it and we have tried to make the book as fun and enjoyable to read as possible. Thanks everyone and I hope you all love the book as much as we loved creating it and mastering all the zany games.
I'm posting some artwork from the artist who will be responsible for all the art with this project. These are a few doodles of hers but she can basically draw anything and I am always amazed with her work. She also makes stuffed animal plushies too so if you like those kinds of things you can contact her on her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Angry-amy-friends/178561062199675 or email me and I will send you her contact.
This portion will be updated with all stretch goals of Office Games based on the total pledge amount.
$10,000 - Audiobook will be created! JoJo Binx will sing and speak the entire Office Games book into an audio book that will be included as a download to anyone who pledged on the Kickstarter page.
$20,000 - Professionally made instructional videos that explain each game will be created by the staff of Office Games and posted on the website for easy viewing access. These videos will have us play and describe every game in the book with humorous results. We are amazing Crotch Disc players which will end very badly for one of us!
$30,000 - App will be created with instructions for every game in the book so you can view quickly in your office on your phone or tablet and will be included with every pledge over the $40 level once it is created.
Risks and challenges
Probably one of the biggest challenges we face is showing how to describe all these games through a book and not in person. We are overcoming that by having a good artist really show detailed easy to follow art and also by putting a lot of content onto our website. We are spending time coming up with fun but challenging rules and how to win each game.
We are also all very busy, so getting the time to get everything completely as we want it has been challenging and will continue to be, but we are dedicated and really want to get this book out.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
