About

Sheeple is a party game for 4 - 10 players.  It's great for friends and family of all ages.

Each player is a sheep who is trying to become a "Sheeple" - a sheep that walks upright, wears human clothing, goes to school, and is working toward a career.

SHEEPLE is like the opposite of Scattergories, and it's like the Game of Life but with sheep.  Take a look...

REVIEWS  

What well-known game rev-ewe-ers are saying about SHEEPLE...

Unfiltered Gamer - “I never give this out usually, but it's like a 10 out of 10, and it's easily a game I could play over and over and over again.  As far as party games go, as far as family games go, this is a definite pick-up.” 

Board Gamers Anonymous - “You're gonna love these puns. I know I do.”

SAHM Reviews - "SHEEPLE pairs a board game with a word game to create one family-friendly, punny game!"

BENEFITS

Because SHEEPLE forces rapid brainstorming, it excercises the creative part of the brain in children and adults.  (I used to take improv classes, and I freestyle rap; rapid brainstorming is huge component of creative thinking.)

STRETCH GOALS  

$10k - FUNDING GOAL - SHEEPLE becomes a reality!

$15k, $20k, $25k  - STANDARD STRETCH GOAL - Every $5k or so.  Things like a pair of extra Kickstarter-exclusive characters, a pair of extra pun cards, a pair of extra category cards, merits (tokens that add a little strategy by letting you alter where you land), drinking game rules, or a downloadable one-minute timer sound effect with sheep BAAA's.  

$30k - RAM-BUNCTIOUS STRETCH GOAL - Every $30k or so.  Things like a Kickstarter-exclusive game box with spot UV (the printing technique that gives it a 3d look), a game board with spot UV, thicker cards, a letter die (for getting +1 points if a matching item starts with that letter), or an actual sheep sound one-minute timer app for Android and iPhone.

You can vote for and discuss which stretch goal you'd like to see next in the SHEEPLE Community Group.  You'll be voting for what the next stretch goal is; already-achieved stretch goals will be set in stone.  I'll be the shepherd, in control of what gets made, but this is a cool way for the SHEEPLE community to give their feedback and ideas, and I'll try to make it happen if I can.  Put your hoof in the air, and be herd!

Here's a sampling of what the next stretch goal could be, plus there's 29 others on the list so far:

SHIPPING

Shipping will be collected post-campaign, with a pledge manager.  It will be international-friendly.

Shipping is the bane of every Kickstarter creator.  I want nothing more than to get you SHEEPLE with awesome stretch goals, for $25, with free shipping.  I'm sacrificing a large chunk of my profit to get you cheaper shipping, but I still have to charge a tiny bit, sorry.

Shipping is $3 to the US (lower 48 states).  (Fulfillment by Quartermaster Logistics and Amazon.)

For international shipping, I'm working with a myriad of fulfillment companies, to get you the best deal.  (Quartermaster Logistics, VFI Asia, Aetherwords, GamesQuest, and Spiral Galaxy.)

International shipping prices include VAT/customs, so you can get your game hassle-free.  The more games you order, the better your shipping deal, so go in on it with your friends!  Prices depend on quantity ordered.  Note: Extra Angel / Devil decks do not incur extra charges.  HERE ARE THE SHIPPING COSTS:

If 100 games sell to a region such as the EU, Canada, or Australia / NZ, I will ship games to a fulfillment center in that region, to drastically reduce VAT/customs and shipping costs, and then I will pass on the savings to you!  (These are the current prices, however they will be updated if shipping prices or VAT fees change.)

ABOUT US

Hey I'm Aaron Smith, the creator of SHEEPLE.  I've been designing games my entire life.  Growing up, I was an only child who loved math, and inventing games was a great escape.  This is my second published game, after Old World New World. I've worked on video games for 10 years, writing cutting-edge graphics code for titles such as Godzilla: Save the Earth, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, Kung Fu Panda, Transformers, Jimmy Johnson Extreme Racing, The Evil Within, and X-Com. I also worked for Google. My other hobbies include travel, rapping, playing volleyball, biking, swimming, ballroom dancing, reading, and playing keyboard.  

While working on a Jimmy Johnson video game, I met Justin Adri, a very talented concept and character artist.  I had a hunch he would know how to transform the SHEEPLE world into a reality, but watching him create the art was just incredible.  With an extensive career making both toys and video games, it's no surprise he had a knack.  He's designed plush toys, figurines, wooden 3D puzzles, and board game layouts in the toy world.  In video games, he's done concept art and design for characters, vehicles, environments, props, and cinematics.  Here's some early SHEEPLE concept art, look how far it's come:

Risks and challenges

Sheeple is a 100% playable prototype with 95% complete art. It has been successfully playtested countless times, with all age groups, since its inception in 2011. I have complete confidence in the game itself.

While I have one published title to my name ("Old World New World"), this is my first self-published title, and my first Kickstarter project. Kickstarters are very complicated beasts to tame. That being said, I am a fast learner, with a very high bar of excellence. I will do everything possible to see to it that SHEEPLE is a success, and and that you guys get an awesome game in your hands.

I am working with some of the industries best manufacturers and a host of shipping companies, to bring you the finest product imaginable.

Justin (the artist) is working part-time on this, so should there be a lot of stretch goals, this could possibly introduce a 2-week art delay. Quality will always be the #1 priority.
