You have dedicated your working life to the glory of WordPress development. You serve your company. You serve the WordPress community. Now, you can dedicate your fun time to WordPress too, with WordPress the Card Game!

Build your agency, hire developer talents, complete contracts and expand your empire. But most important of all: Contribute to the WordPress community and WIN!

The game is designed by Rustan Håkansson, board game industry veteran that has designer Nations:The Dice Game, Dungeon Rush, Drupal: The card game and other popular games.

 

You start an agency with only you. You have some skills and some money, and you begin to recruit employees and win contracts. Work on the contracts to keep expanding the agency, but what really counts is what contributes to the community.

The game is for 2-4 players and takes 20-30 minutes to play. Each turn is very fast, you take a single action and then you are done. You will be tempted to push your employees a little extra to work overtime, but don't overdo it!

The game features important agencies, persons and plugins in the Nordic WordPress community as well as great Nordic WordPress sites.

 

 


The game consists of 58 cards and 56 chits.

  • 4x Agency cards
  • 20x Developer cards
  • 20x Contract cards
  • 10x Community cards
  • 4x reference cards
  • 22x 1 value Money chits
  • 8x 3 value Money chits
  • 22x 1 value Reputation chits
  • 4x 5 value Reputation chits

This kickstarter focuses on doing a "Nordic edition" of this game, with contracts & players from the Nordic region. 

During the kickstarter we will have votes to select some of the player cards. Some cards are already set (You guessed it, Matt will be in there), but some will be up for grabs.

 Angry Creative is a digital bureau and we help clients with e-commerce using WooCommerce and digital marketing using WordPress. We've been in the WordPress business since WordPress 1.x and today we're Swedens largest WooCommerce/WordPress expert.

We are very proud of our bureau, our processes and how we build scalable, secure and reliable solutions that gives great bang for the buck for our clients.

We feel strongly about Open source culture and it is part of our ethos. But contributing to the community is not just about CSR and giving back. It delivers real value to clients, and the more you contribute - the more you will have to say in how the project evolves. This game is intended to be fun, but it is also designed to teach open-source values and give the big contributors in the community some deserved recognition.

This game and its usage of the brand "WordPress" is approved by the WordPress foundation. All profits from the game will be donated to the WordPress foundation in order to create more value to the community.

General help with Kickstarter and production TeaTIme Productions

To be able to offer the best shipping fee's possible we will calculate shipping after the kickstarter is over. We will give you estimates as soon as possible. Shipping will be added in a pledge manager after the kickstarter has ended. 

Risks and challenges

This is the first Kickstarter from Angry Creative and we are new to running Kickstarter projects. Onboard however we've got Tea Time Productions, who are both experienced in the board games industry and has done a previously successful kickstarter campaign for "Tribes: Early civilization". (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/teatimeproductions/tribes-early-civilization)

Art and layout are done, but there will likely be some minor changes. The plan is to start on pre-production with the printer when the Kickstarter project ends and start production when the money from Kickstarter arrives. Once produced the games will be shipped to us in Sweden for packing, then we will ship each package individually to backers. Many things can go wrong and while we hope the games will arrive to backers in May, we have set the estimate for delivery to June to be safe.

We have seen Kickstarter productions try different approaches with shipping over the years, some with great result and some worse. We have therefor decided to choose best possible shipping alternative when the Kickstarter is over. We will give you estimates as soon as possible.

With some real experience we know, thanks to the guys at "TeaTIme productions", that communication with all you backers is essential to the success of the project. We hope that we can create a really great product, together with you all. Lets make this magical!
