 How to Play Hi Q

How Your Support Will Be Rewarded

I am so excited to offer you a chance to get a deck of OmenQuest cards. I have been playing with them for 11 years and am confident you will come to cherish your deck. Beyond their appealing design, they have an ubiquitous magic that is indescribable yet undeniable.

 The cards depict a series of natural phenomenon, each of which posses an archetypal inner meaning of some kind. Everyone has an inner fog, inner ocean, inner volcano, and so on. Using the innate feelings inspired by the cards players can play an assortment of unique games with no means of separating winners from losers. It is utmost refreshing, I can absolutely assure you.

I play with hundreds of people a month and find it is a wonder to see the light-heartedness and open-mindedness players discover in OmenQuest cards. These games, being devoid of competition make the time spent playing more focused on our appreciation of our friends and how they manage to persevere through their turn. Though it is true that you cannot lose, not all hands dealt are easy to deal with. 

There is a healthy struggle that can happen with each turn. It is you versus the moment, and though the moment is often intimidating, you will overcome it. You always have, that’s how you got to this moment. OmenQuest is a game to help fine-tune your ability to cope with the present.

Some are hesitant at first, but I promise, after a great fuss of insisting that they cannot do it, they play a few rounds and soon find they have under-estimated themselves for who knows how long. You have likely never guessed emotions were this much fun to play with and it could feel this safe to talk vaguely about them through metaphor. I am not kidding, OmenQuest is really fun and really full of vague metaphors. And what does it all mean?! Don’t worry about it. It’s just a game, a ridiculously fun and compelling game. An adventure for the rest of your life. 

 About the Creator

Isaac Bluefoot is an artist in northern-most California. A painter at heart, yet he is known in his community for his work as a writer, director, producer, and performer with the Kinetic Paranormal Society (a puppet troupe telling the story of a pair of socks in a magical wardrobe traveling through time and space investigating all things supernatural) and creating the annual Bogglebang Scavenger Hunt

In his effort to make OmenQuest cards, Isaac has founded his business and school, Dragonflower Ink. There he is the head designer and headmaster. When asked if it is actually a wizard school in disguise the subject is promptly changed. Have you tried OmenQuest cards? They are superb.

Risks and challenges

I have never produced anything at this quantity before. I am still an untested Kickstarter creator, but I have been carefully watching and analyzing campaigns for nearly a decade and have an all too real grasp of how they can go wrong. That's why my budget includes expenses for not only producing the decks, but for freight, fulfillment, and mitigating backers between Kickstarter and the fulfillment centers.

Your support will help pay for production, freight, tariffs, warehousing, shipping, and oversight of the process. I have kept a meticulous spreadsheet to track all expenses and am confident that everything will run as relatively smoothly as a first time Kickstarter can, and you will have your deck by late spring 2019.

    Last Copy of First Print Run

    There is one last copy of the demo print run from 2010. Only one lucky backer will get this early edition, typos and all. No, it won't have all of the cards from the deck we are making with this campaign, but it will have two cards teasing the future Elements Deck. Surely a collectors item.
