The Check Deck (Card Game/Board Game)

$221

Have a Checkers board? When is the last time you played it? Renew the fun and enjoy-ability of Checkers with The Check Deck! The Check Deck is a card game that accompanies and enhances that dusty Checkers board in your closet and reawakens the excitement! It's fun for the whole family and easy to understand and play.

The rules are simple.

1. Each player is dealt seven card.

2. A player can either play a card or make a normal checkers move.  Examples of cards are: Move two pieces one space each:  Switch one of your pieces with one of you opponents piece: Turn any of your pieces into a king.

3. As per checkers rules, a move is defined as moving a space, a jump, a double jump, etc.

Each deck contains two each of 17 individual cards for a total of 34 playing cards and one rules card. 

We are raising funds to produce The Check Deck and market it globally. All we need is $100. Already, The Check Deck is endorsed by great Checkers players worldwide; read their reviews below!

Risks and challenges

We believe the Check Deck can "jump" any obstacles. We've made a Check Deck prototype and have had families test it in their homes. It's a hit and kid-approved!
