Hello everyone.  My name is Wyatt W. Earp and I send out thanks to you for watching my video and considering contributing to my campaign.  I am a writer, author and board game inventor and designer.  I am married with two daughters, one son and a granddaughter.   I live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Once you have had an opportunity to watch my video regarding my board game called Backtrack, you will see that my board game will provide you with the confidence to know that your contribution will help me to manufacture board games that meet the certification standard that I have invented for all of my board games that I will manufacture.  That standard is the ACF certification.  A meaning addictive. C meaning challenging.  And F meaning fun.  Once you receive a copy of my board game you will see that it will have my ACF certification logo on it and after playing my board game you will be able to say that it is indeed addictive, challenging and fun.   I represent people who would like to invent board games and have the wealth to do so but not the talent to develop it.  I also represent people who possesses the talent to invent board games but do not have the wealth to see their invention through.  I have a passion, dedication and commitment to providing board games that will bring family, friends and community together in conversation, laughter and close intimate fellowship.  Many well known and large game manufacturers have the finances and means to make copies, distribute and sell board games throughout the world but many do not know that many of the board games that they own were sold to them by every day people like me and you who did not have the finances or means to move their dreams forward.   But with your purchase of my board game you can contribute to my efforts to provide a board game that was not designed similar to the standard board game design culture.  Backtrack's game play and board game design is nothing that you've seen in a board game until now.  I believe in the saying that words are cheap but seeing is believing.  I can boldly say that my words are not sufficient enough but my video presentation will show that seeing certainly is believing!  

My goal is to provide 2,500 copies of my Backtrack board game to anyone and everyone who is willing to pay $17.00 per board game.  This amount includes layout and design for one logo, one game board 20" x 20", one box top 10.5" x 15.75 x 2", one bottom box sized to accommodate box top, 132 playing cards 2.75" x 2.75", one two-sided page of instructions/rules 11" x 8.5" folded to 5.5" x 8.5", one dice with dots, and four pawns black, blue, brown and green colors.  I have access to three of the most notable and reputable board game manufacturers in the world who have the resources, expertise and professionalism to provide the copies that I need.  These three game manufacturers are Panda Game Manufacturing, Grand Prix International and Ludo Fact.  These three manufacturers can provide completed copies within approximately six to eight weeks.  With your help and belief in my board game design efforts I believe that I can reach my goal.  But, if for some reason my goal falls short I am confident that I can negotiate with the game manufacturers to provide a quote for a lesser amount of copies.

You cannot actually realize the impact that my board game will have unless you watch my video. But I would like to provide some insight as to why my board game stands out and is not like the standard board game design culture.  

1.  Rather than design my game board with plain white shapes, I used distinctive pattern designs within each shape.

2.  I decided not to go with the usual color scheme of red, blue, green and yellow.  But, instead I used black, blue, brown and green.

3.  From the Start space to the Home space you can see that I have designed the route around the game board in a unique way covering the entire game board.

4.  I've created a custom logo regarding a certification standard for all of my board games entitled ACF certification.  A means addictive. C means challenging. And F means fun.  Every board game that I design and invent will come with my ACF certification standard logo.

5.  The rules and instructions are laid out in a way that anyone can understand and follow how Backtrack is played.

6.  I have provided hints about the objective of the game on the front of the board game box:  A.  In the title of the game, Backtrack.  B.  In the picture illustration (you can see a pawn giving the illusion of backtracking on the game board).  C.  In the strategy hint located at the bottom of the box (Make a decision that will send your opponents backtracking to the beginning of the game).

7.  Finally, I have provided a brief description of how to play Backtrack with rhyming words in sonnet form without giving the entire game play away.

SONNET DESCRIPTION:

Welcome to the world of Backtrack™.

The object of the game is to send 'em back!

You must use strategy well if you want to win

but be careful how you play the game my friend.

If you can move forward while sending your opponents back

as far as to the start of the game,

that would be a great strategy of attack

and opponents will remember your name.

But whenever strategy lends you a helping hand

never underestimate how your opponents will play.

Remember, it is to plan where your opponents will land.

That is the Backtrack™ way!

Roll the dice and move your pawn to begin

but you must use strategy well if you hope to win.

Risks and challenges

I understand that some delays are possible when manufacturing copies of board games such as delivery challenges, supply shortages and many unforeseen circumstances. I believe in being prepared for anything that will hinder the progress of getting my board game into the hands of my backers. That is why I have contact with more than one board game manufacturer. If one is not able to succeed in a timely manner, I can reach out to others for assistance. And if I need to become involved in the board game set up, I can reach out to manufacturers who can provide me with several individual components of the board game.
