FlowerFall: Light and Awesome

BGG Listing: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/125315/flowerfall

Sometimes a simple idea is a great idea. That is the story of FlowerFall. A couple months ago, Carl Chudyk (designer of Innovation and Glory to Rome) proposed to me a seemingly innocuous random game about dropping cards with flowers onto the table. I thought it was silly, but I gave it a shot, and within two weeks I was printing up 100 copies to bring to Origins on cardstock. Everyone loved it! And so here we are, prepping for a larger print run with, you know real production quality. Backing our project lets us print more awesome games!

So, if you'd like to join us in helping fund our print run, we'd be happy to have you on board!  KS backers will be the first to get copies of FlowerFall, and US shipping is free!  And we have some shiny stretch rewards planned.  Assuming things go well we'll get to all thirty seven of them!

Art and Card Design

The art on the cards you see (and the current cover art) is from our quick-printing of the game. Rest assured, we're making up some nicer looking art!  Pictures will be available soon.  

Zombies

You may have noticed that many parts of this KickStarter campaign imply heavily that a zombie apocalypse is imminent.  That is because you are observant.  Good job!

International Shipping

International shipping is $3 to Canada, $7 to anywhere else in the world for the base level (one game).  For any other levels, please double ($6 Canada, $14 elsewhere) the amount added to your pledge!

FAQ

  • 12 cards in each of 7 different colors, several starting terrain postcard-sized cards and a free copy of Win, Lose, or Banana if we get to Stretch Reward 1!

    The early FlowerFall backer gets the worm! And by worm we mean a deal. And by a deal we mean bananas. Or that you get the basic reward for cheaper. One of those. (Yes, it's one copy of the game)
