This rummy set card game collects Native American and Cavalry melds, uses Chiefs to steal points and tries to avoid the Custer card!

Quote from FATHERGEEK'S Review : Often times, the best games are those that keep you thinking and remembering them long after you’ve stopped playing them. Little Bighorn Rummy is one of those games. The game designer has perfectly mixed critical thinking, strategy, and tactics using simple and light game play. While the objective is always the same, how one gets there is always different. Best of all, tactics and strategies will shift during the game. When a player suddenly draws Custer midway through a hand, they scramble and must refocus and so do the other players. The careful card plays suddenly turn more aggressive and visceral as everyone tries to ditch cards as fast as possible or find that perfect combo for the win. This type of game play was unexpected and greatly pleased me. I highly recommend Little Bighorn Rummy to Child, Parent, and Gamer Geeks who are looking for an engaging Rummy style card game to play at their table.

Risks and challenges
After a year and a half of game development, testing, redesign, exploration of production costs and procedures, the biggest risk and challenge I see is completing a success Kickstarter campaign. Do I have enough network power to get the game funded? I believe all my "ducks are in a row" to have the game delivered to my supporters in a timely matter. I decided to keep it simple. Lots of projects now have numerous rewards and fantastic stretch goals. This is just a simple card game and I am asking for a small goal. SIMPLE. If you like my idea please invest, I'm not designing the game to make a living. I designed it because the idea popped and others liked it.
The biggest challenge I have had so far, "Aw HELL, not another RUMMY Game!" I say, "Try it, may be you'll like it." Thanks!
