About this project

Dropholes! is a new traditional pub-style game. A tabletop sport suitable for the whole family. We want to bring a new classic to the market and make it available to the public. These types of games are so detailed and difficult to create new concepts for that you just don't see anything except the old classics (pool, darts, foosball, etc.) being made anymore. We want to change this. In an age dominated by electronic/virtual games, it's time for new old fashioned game.

Dropholes! is kind of like a mixture of pool, foosball and shuffleboard...but totally different. It's a good old fashioned, friendly sporting competition that combines a little hand eye coordination and skill from repetition similar in style to the old classics.

See more about how the game is played in this video and check out the website to see more details about the project at: http://dropholes.com/

The reality is, creating a game like this and making it affordable is no easy feat. There is quite a bit more to be taken into consideration with production than a typical board game. Hence the asking price. If the project successfully funds, it will give us option of purchasing the necessary equipment to speed up production or have the game produced more cost effectively over seas. As mentioned in the rewards, you the backers, get a vote in this matter.

We feel that a pretty good/fun game has been created. The game has been tested quite a bit and it plays smoothly & feels like a classic. So let's get the ball rolling! 

Thank you for your support.
