About

About Tuxtla

Tuxtla is an adaptation of a game our family has enjoyed for years. Learning the game is easy, and it is enjoyable to play without mastering any of the deep strategies. Of course, it is all the more fun as you learn the strategic plays that appear unwise and end up paying off in the end.

The Tuxtla deck has five suits of cards numbered 1 through 10. Each round takes less than 10 minutes to play and is fast paced. A game is won when a player reaches a total of 15 points. Most games last under 30 minutes.

The beta version of the deck has been fully designed and tested for playability and for quality of materials. This Kickstarter campaign will fund the final steps of production and distribution of the game. As we exceed our funding goal we will go into our second design plan for the cards, moving from a caricature to a more realistic image for each card. We will also move up from a plain box to customized or even to a custom tin box.


About Call Family Games

The Call Family grew up playing games. Each holiday, family event, and many evenings are spent around the game table. Grandpa says that game playing allowed his children to learn "how to lose without being losers". 

Relationships are strengthened, self image improved, and education enhanced through game play. Interpersonal relationships skills are refined. And most importantly, games are fun.

A number of years ago we started vetting out ideas for new games that should be marketed, culling the best aspects of the games we love most and creating fun, family oriented games. We have so many exciting projects to start, but we realize that we need to get significant experience under our belts before we move on to some of the more involved games. 

We decided to launch Tuxtla as our first game precisely because it is so well tested (we have played it for years) and because we can set a very low funding level for our first offering. As we continue to gain experience we will refine and then offer future projects through Kickstarter. We are excited for this first launch! 

Risks and challenges

We have already printed several copies of the rough draft of the game, and have contracted prices for production and delivery of our final product.

We have alternate manufacturers that we can contract if the original manufacturer is unable to meet our production request.

We are dedicated to producing and distributing this game. The largest risk would be a delay in delivery date if the manufacturers have issues that delay production. We have done what we can to provide a cushion to the reasonable expectation of game delivery.
