Welcome to Wild One, a tabletop game from RAD Books & Games LLC.
Please make sure to visit our website and sign up for the mailing list to get information on upcoming projects, new games and books, and specials.
Our Wild One Kickstarter is the end of a long journey and the beginning of an amazing adventure. The original concept for Wild One came about quite a while ago, but then life got hectic and Wild One took a back seat. A few months ago, we decided it was time to try and make our dream a reality and we launched a small, family-owned business, RAD Books & Games LLC.
Games have always been incredibly important for our family and friends and we are committed to providing quality, engaging products that bring people together to "bond around the board."
Wild One represents a significant commitment of time, talent, and financial investment from friends and family. The artwork is complete (except for the Founder cards), the game has been successfully play-tested and revised, and we've identified our manufacturer. All that remains is the support from our backers. With your help and contributions we're ready to roll.
Rich, famous, wild. Will you be the One?
Before 1860, the West was simply known as the West, but then the Wild family arrived and changed EVERYTHING. Their impact was immediate and far-reaching. The West was no longer the West, it was the Wild West!
Now, the year is 1885. The Wild family has made a fortune through various “marketing” strategies, “business” ventures, and “community” projects. Some legal, others “less” legal. More importantly, the Wild family has emblazoned their name on both a territory and an era.
The family has grown tired of being ridiculously, filthy, stinking, stupid rich and they’ve done everything there is to do in the West. After a rather raucous family council, the Wilds have decided to give away half of their family fortune and head east to retire as New York City slickers.
The family wants someone with basic mathematical skills. The person must also be able to wisely manage money without going into debt. Finally, the Wilds want someone to carry on their Wild legacy in the West, which means someone with rambunctious spunkiness and tons of true grit.
The family has designed a simple competition to determine who will win the Wild Family Fortune and the glorious title of “Wild One.” Challengers have come from near and far to participate in this unprecedented event. During the contest, members of the Wild Family will likely get down and dirty to help their favorite challenger win the competition.

Backer Levels and Rewards
All shipments to backer addresses in the United States will ship at no additional cost.
There are multiple backer levels for this project. Most include receiving first edition copies, autographed first edition copies, and Wild One T-shirts. The highest backer level, though, is for those few intrepid individuals who want to be more than a backer; they want to be immortalized in the game itself. Founders will do just that, by being included in the first and all subsequent editions of the game as a playable "Founder" Wild card.
Who We Are
We're a family that loves playing games together and with friends.
Risks and challenges
We are a relatively new, family-owned and operated, game development company and this is our first Kickstarter project. That being said, we are confident that the necessary steps have been taken to ensure the success of this game launch. All of the art and illustrations are complete, the game has been play-tested, and we have quotes from multiple manufacturers with projected completion dates in advance of the September release. All we need now is a successful Kickstarter campaign. Let's make it happen.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
