Remarkable Rhymes of the Traveller's Times

AU$ 8,240

86

Remarkable Rhymes is a social card game where players fill in crucial Adjective and Noun blanks to complete short stories, creating funny, charming and imaginative scenes.

The rules are simple enough for children aged 8+ to be able to play and has some tricky words to expand a young mind’s vocabulary and keep an old one’s sharp.

We wanted to make a game which could be brought into the classroom or played at home with friends and family and encapsulates the fun and playfulness of poems and ballads. 

We need backer's support to be able to manufacture and ship the game! (And with a lot of support - achieve stretch goals!)

If you're a retailer or you have any other kind of enquiries, we'd love to hear from you: theteam@humblebeegames.com

1. Each player draw 5 Noun and 5 Adjective cards each.

2. Players take turns being the storyteller. The storyteller draws a story card and reads it aloud to the rest of the players.

3. The rest of the players then choose cards from their hand to fill in the blanks on the active story card. 

4. The storyteller then chooses one player's version that they liked the best, this player wins the round.

The role of storyteller is passed onto the next player and so on. 

With 50 rhyming stories, 88 Nouns and 98 Adjectives the game can be replayed over and over with creative, new combinations to be made.

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter, however, the core game itself is made already, with shipping (and stretch goals) being the only step remaining. We have also been counselled by fellow tabletop makers who have ran successful Kickstarters before and have highlighted the most common risks and resolutions.

Manufacturing and Shipping - We minimised the risk of mistakes with the manufacturing slowing the delivery pipeline by having all our stretch goals and backer rewards all part of the game and in the same box. So there is only one party involved making and shipping the goods, that way, if there is any problem, we can communicate easily with them and easily in turn with backers.
We are also giving ourselves plenty of time between the end of the Kickstarter and the ordering and shipping date should any issue arise with the manufacturer.

Stretch Goals - completing these can sometimes cause a Kickstarters to extend deadlines. As mentioned above we're leaving a long time between finishing the Kickstarter and delivery date. This is also to accomodate for the possibility of having to complete all stretch goals. We are also experienced in completing game art to a deadline and have timetabled for all new art pieces to be done.
