About

 

About the Game

Swindle is a fun and engaging Victorian-era themed party game about finding collectibles and trinkets. The game revolves around players trading with one another to obtain the cards they have been tasked with finding, or to get rid of cards that will hurt their end score.

Risks and challenges

Meeting demand.
This seems to be a problem with many crowdfunding campaigns that see massive success, and it's one that we don't want to encounter. We have done our best to come up with sensible stretch goals that add value to the product while still being achievable by a small team.

Making sure the game isn't broken.
Nobody likes an unfair or poorly balanced game. Because of this we are doing regular play testing to iron out any problems in our game design. Even then there's still a chance we won't catch something, so if you see a potential issue with our game feel free to email us at our listed email address.

Making sure the game is fun!
This is a small one but very important for obvious reasons. Again the solution to this challenge is play testing. The more we play the game the better we can hone in on what makes the game fun and catch anything that might hold it back.
