Convert is a two player abstract strategy board game. Two opposing players each have a set of 10 differently shaped wooden pieces that are played on a 4x4 board with alternating black and white squares.

By manipulating pieces to fit on the board, as well as with each other, players attempt to score rows of four while claiming spaces on the board by converting them to their color.

When a player's piece completes a row of four squares, that player scores points. This isn't as easy at it looks though, as each piece you place causes the board to climb taller! 

When all pieces are played, or when neither player can play a piece, players add the points they scored during game-play to the amount of squares they have claimed on the board.

The player with the most points at the end of the game is the winner!

Below is a visual representation of what is awarded at each pledge level.

If our campaign hits $15,000 we have THREE bonuses that will happen! 

BOARD UPGRADE!
Currently, the $6000 base goal includes a standard 4x4 board. If we can hit $15,000 by the end of our campaign, the board will be upgraded to include that spiffy convert logo in the center of the board (as seen in the video), plus a red felt bottom! Fancy!

SCORE KEEPERS FOR EVERYONE!
We will include the score keeper cards at every pledge level. Those of you who pledged at levels 2 or higher, dont worry, because...

BUTTONS!
Backers who have shown support at levels 2 or higher will receive a set of buttons to convert your gear! (2 buttons per pledge)

We've all grown up in them, and they've provided us much more than simply entertainment. They are our community, our family, so lets pay them back! The Retailer Pledge level is for brick and mortar stores, but non-retailers can help their store out by acknowledging the following:

BRICK AND MORTARS REFERRAL PROGRAM
When a retailer pledges under the retailer level, they qualify for the referral program for the duration of the campaign. see below.

Referral program
For each backer that mentions* a brick and mortar store upon pledging, they award that store a dollar amount equal to 10% of their pledge.
*Backers can only mention one store upon pledging

(Backers at this level will need to contact us directly to confirm their eligibility. Backers who pledge at this level and are found to be ineligible will receive the Level 2 pledge level's rewards instead. Sorry, online storefronts are not eligible for these pledge levels.)

Risks and challenges

We understand that there are risks involved with starting a project like this. We've hear of tales from our friends who also produce games about mishaps that they've encountered, and how they have come to a satisfiable solution.

We also have experience in the toy industry with things like: art, production, and shipping. We are very confident in stating that mid/late fall is well within our capabilities.
