About

What is?

Hook Line & Stinker Fish is a fun table top card game for kids and adults. Players are dealt a deck of fish that they will play from and try to catch.

Each turn players will continue to play fish from their deck as they successfully catch them by rolling dice and meeting or exceeding the number on the dice icon for that fish card.

When you do not catch a fish your turn is over and you must either choose to put a sea creature into play or take your chance with catching a piece of trash or treasure.

When playing a fish from your fish deck, if the stinker fish card is put into play, your turn is over. If the stinker fish card is in play when a player does not catch a fish, they must pick it up and shuffle it into their deck of fish cards.

Try to score the most points by catching fish and treasures before one player runs out of cards in their fish deck.

Risks and challenges

- Who is?

cRAZYjOESgAMES is an independent game design company owned and operated primarily by myself(Joe). Although I've had some help from Mr Crazy Joe the puppet, and Mr Francis Vallejo the very talented illustrator who has worked with me on other game projects. Together we have been able to run two successful kickstarter projects so far. Hook Line and Stinker Fish was designed and illustrated by myself(Joe), yes that's right, all these fun fish, sea creatures, trash and treasure cards were art works created for the game by me .

- Why Kickstarter?

The goal of this project (like my last two kickstarter projects) is to simply raise the funds to have the game printed and shipped to people who like to play table top games.

- How will this all be done?

I have worked with the folks at the The Game Crafter with Monsters & Knights and Round Ten, and they have been nothing but a fantastic printing service. They Produce a very high quality product and offer fulfillment services that make shipping quick and easy. This project is set up with a low goal to fund and print a small run through TGC (The Game Crafter). This is specifically in order to have the box quality upgraded with their service agreement (the boxes are very nice if you haven't seen them). Although if this project over funds and meets and unlocks stretch goals, I have researched and contacted other companies that are capable of handling a much larger order. (I still like the people at TGC, don't hate me if this needs to be done.)

- What are some of the risks of not working with TGC?

Risks for this project will be matching a suitable manufacturer depending on support and funding for the project. As much as I like to work with The Game Crafter, If this project over funds I will have to work with a company that can produce large quantity print runs. As much as I like to fulfill rewards as quick as possible, this could possibly cause delays as I have never had a game printed with a larger manufacturer and I have not experienced fulfilling a game with another company. Although I am prepared to do everything to make sure backers get their rewards in the most timely manner that I can.
