LIMPEH SAYS // A card game for we the citizens of Singapore

ABOUT

Limpeh Says is an (18+) card game for we the citizens of Singapore, containing 550 unique, localised cards revolving around the culture we've built here in our little country. 

Guided by the ideology of being 'morally wrong but politically right', it includes topics from food, to National Service, and everything else in between.

The game is as simple as it gets. Each round, one player draws a Red Card. Everyone else answers with their best white card. The funniest combination wins.

To download the official rulebook, click here. If you're wondering why it looks like this, it's because you're meant to print and fold it. But don't worry, if you backed any of the tiers which include game sets, we will do the dirty job for you.

BOX

The box sits at around 19cm x 7cm, and weighs about 1.1kg.

It's pretty big. (That's what she said.)

Included in the box are 550 cards - 90 Red Cards, 460 White Cards. The cards are 2.5x3.5 inches, printed and trimmed professionally so your little princess hands won't get paper cuts.

REWARDS

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

SPECIAL SET

If you have juicy inside jokes with your friends, and want to immortalise them, then get them printed with this reward with 10 custom Red and White Cards.

We will contact you a few weeks before we begin production to get your card list and do 2 rounds of revision.

Your cards will likely never be half as good as ours, but to fail is to grow.

KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVES

As mentioned in Update #2, we are going to release all stretch goals (from 30k, to 80k+) at once. We feel that we shouldn't be 'rewarding' backers for funding more, but reward as a form of thank you and appreciation

So, as thanks for funding us thus far, you will get:

  • + 5 Red Cards
  • + 5 White Cards
  • + Better card quality
  • + Better box quality
  • + Kickstarter Special Expansion Pack "Limpeh Says: CNY Ang Paos"
  • + 1 Super Special Kickstarter Backer's card ;-)

Limpeh Says: CNY Ang Paos

Included in this exclusive expansion pack are 5 Red and White community-suggested cards, and 5 Red and White celebrity/personality custom cards. So, yep, 20 cards in total. Well done! You aren't that stupid after all.

Community-suggested cards will go up for voting on Facebook very soon, and we will contact 5 different local celebrities/personalities to customise 1 Red and 1 White card each.

The cards included in this expansion pack also come in a different colour so you can show off to your loser friends who purchased them from retailers.

SHIPPING

After factoring in the weight, size, and gender of each box, shipping costs from SingPost have come down to this:

Local 1-Set: $7 per set
(Estimated 1-2 weeks to ship out everything.)

International 1-Set: $20 per set
($20 is for sea freight which will take 6-10 weeks to reach you.
If you want to receive your package earlier through air shipping, est 2-3 weeks, add on another $20 to your pledge and let us know!)

Local 3-Set: $16 per set
(Estimated 1-2 weeks to ship out everything.)

International 3-Set: $80 per set
(This is INSANE, and it takes 70 days. So we decided not to put an option for international shipping for the 3-Set. It's a lot cheaper if you and your friends get the 1-Set option each. But if you somehow really want it, please contact us at (contact@limpehsays.com) and we can work something out for you.)

For enqueries, please e-mail us at (contact@limpehsays.com).

Will we take your comment into serious consideration? No. We'll probably send you a generated standard reply. But sometimes, if time permits, we will personally type out the generated reply to give it a human touch.

THE TEAM

Gabriel Leow
Owner and founder of Play Nation, Gabriel initially only wanted to offer advice and help with this project. Later on, fuelled by his passion of wanting local games to thrive, and realising that Yong Heng lacked the skills and friends to do this proper, he agreed to work on it together lest the young chap makes a fool of himself.

Tan Yong Heng
Former JC dropout and underachiever, Yong Heng worked on this as a school project which garnered much more attention than his parents ever gave him. Unable to do this alone, he partnered up with Gabriel after many life-threatening persuasions and they're now en-route to not lose money.

Risks and challenges

Now, here's the hard part: Getting people to back and support this project.

We have contacted and collaborated with local YouTubers and outlets who we feel embody our passion for this game. With their help and the support from their legions of fans, together with people who are already enthusiastic about the game, hopefully we can get this funded.

YOU can help us too, by sharing it with your family and friends.

Maybe not with your family. Because then it will be really awkward when cards like, "Doing pushups on top of your Ah Ma," gets played.

But sharing and spreading the word will likely increase our chances of getting funded! And the earlier we get the funds to starting production, the earlier it will be in your hands.

(If you're reading until this far, thank you for your support, honestly. We joke a lot and make many snarky remarks, but we are truly thankful for everyone who is supporting this!)
