About this project

Think you know all the best lines from movies, TV shows, songs, and heck, everything else, too? Here's your chance to prove it! 

We've gathered over 500 pop culture quotes from the '50s to today, covering everything from movies to novels, TV shows to ad slogans, song lyrics to famous speeches. Each quote has a word missing, and it's up to you to figure out what it is. Can you Mind the Gap and fill in the blanks? We bet you can! 

We're a mother/daughter duo who loves games, pop culture, and quizzes, and we decided it was time to make the game we always wished we could find.

We wanted a game that was super portable, so we made sure Mind the Gap didn't need a bulky game board to play. It's simply a deck of 126 PROFESSIONALLY PRINTED cards that can easily fit in a purse, carry-on, backpack, or hoodie pocket. (That's the height of about 2.5 decks of regular playing cards, if you were calculating it in your head.)

We never liked games that needed more than two (or one, or three) players, because sometimes it's hard to scrounge up some extra warm bodies. No problem with Mind the Gap. One person can play just as easily as fifty, though probably with less bickering. 

In other good news, we have two sets of rules. One set is for players split into competitive teams vying for points and bragging rights. The other set is for players who just want to have fun without keeping score. We're all winners here. \0/

So if you're a lover of games that are easy to learn, fun to play, and challenging enough to keep you on your toes, we'd be thrilled for you to be a part of our Kickstarter adventure. Take a look at our Rewards to the right to see what we're offering.

Thank you so much for giving us a shot!

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter campaign, but it's not our first rodeo.

Melody has backed more than 20 Kickstarter campaigns in the past, so knows first-hand what works and what doesn't, what can go wrong and how to fix it, and what makes for a happy backer.

We both work in our 15-year-old family owned business, so have lots of hands on experience with shipping, vendors, and customer service.

We have all the quotes chosen for our game, our manufacturer lined up, and our costs calculated. Having said that, we know real life is often messy and the unexpected can happen. Rest assured we'll work our hardest to make sure every one of our backers is satisfied, and keep them in the loop at every juncture. We've given ourselves plenty of extra time between the end of the campaign and the beginning of fulfillment to account for any ripples (or tsunamis) that may need to be managed.
