Raising funds to get the 2nd Edition manufactured before Christmas 2017.

Check out the interesting Perks and Rewards.

They range from a simple thank you to the Capital Keys Grand Prize which includes a case of 6 Keys to the Capitals Board Games shipped to you ASAP from our Pahrump, NV. warehouse or if you desire to meet us in our house or our indoor Mall food court, outdoor picnic area in Chula Vista and play rounds of Keys to the Capitals with us and discuss any improvements needed at all for the 2nd Edition if any. I know one I would like to change. Other nice perks would be listed in the Kickstarter booklet in the 2nd Edition Game Box. 

The Reward Perks take effect after goal met. Also you may buy a copy of Keys to the Capitals on Amazon Prime and leave your feedback as a Kickstarter backer even if you leave a dollar, 5 and 10 dollars.

Due to my severe case of Asperger's Syndrome I never found the right lady to marry. God must have intended me to be my mother's full time caregiver. She had 4 boys before my sister. We don't live close to them. I value family relations very much. Where would I be without a beautiful family with my low paying career? Keys to the Capitals is a 1991 board game idea of mine. Thanks to my family it is on Amazon. Also Shopify.

 I believe I have the ability to get the 2nd Edition to market through Kickstarter Backers. I did not give up on my dream on 2 failures to get Keys to the Capitals on Kickstarter. I haven't struck out but behind on a 0-2 count(baseball term). I believe I have a right to use Kickstarter Backers to get my dream to get a redesigned 2nd copy to market. The game box needs a touch up to show actual tokens and dice. 

Once goal is reached Rewards go out ASAP except the 2nd Edition. Will my 1500 units sell out soon? Investment into the First Edition was not done on a business loan since my company is less than a year old. The reason I chose 1500 units from BoardGameManufacturer.com was to lower price from the $34.99 MSRP. 500 units were about $14.50 per unit compared to $8.35 per unit I got. Which would you pick? Amazon seems happy to list my game. I do sell games in person around the San Diego area with my Shopify Point of Sale app. Most of the units are in our Pahrump, NV area. I do ship them to the Dallas Filfillment Amazon Center when inventory gets low. It will be perfect if Keys to the Capitals got overfunded and I can order more units for example 5,000 units under 6 dollars and 10,000 units under 4 dollars due to my manufacturers relation with the Chinese factory since 1995. I'd love to get Keys to the Capitals manufactured in Chicago but I would not survive the cost of manufacturing. Any board game manufacturers in garages in the San Diego area? I need a quality built game and 300% thicker than quality standards. Early buyers of Keys to the Capitals will get the Best Buy and when inventory gets lower my price will stay at $34.99 MSRP. I do value feedback on my board game and would listen to make it a better for the next shipment to the USA. My mother sends me feedback to and I improve with criticism. I will not allow this high quality board game to sell in a Dollar Store. I am retired with Social Security Disability and I can work at home while caring for my mother. I do have a Wholesaler section on my website. My Autism Spectrum may be keeping me away from Retailers and small Mom and Pop Stores. I want a Speech Therapist. I talk on the phone a lot. I believe 1500 units is too low for the USA, more families need to play our game. Only a few know the Capital of Kentucky when I ask. Do you without checking your smart device? My manufacturer didn't know the Nevada capital when I asked him. He lives in Pahrump. 

 Do new products even the most popular this Christmas season have Kinks? Yes they do. I want to make sure my board game isn't a Kink. It is very high quality and I have a certificate for US Consumer Protection Act of 2008 since Children play it. I want a safe game due to it being made in China. 

Do people play board games anymore? Yes I compete against the smart phone games but can a family play together on smart devices? Keys to the Capitals makes a Perfect Family game and Children learn by playing. See the text I got tonight. 

My friends mother bought one.

 I enjoy all the praise my game is getting but I want more versions of rules. Our original rules are almost perfect but look at Monopoly they have different rules for shorter play. My great nieces aged 4-11 from Tulsa got the original prototype and they love it playing 30 times in the first few weeks and they all own Kindles. The game play is 60 minutes but 2nd Edition can have 20 minute version or other version for Children too addictive to smart devices. I do compete with those. I am addicted to my Apple devices, they are my office.

Risks and challenges

My first edition of Keys to the Capitals averaged $11.00 per unit.
$8.64 per unit manufactured on 1500 units
$1200 for token remolding
$2000 for Shipment
Extra fee I chose for US Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 Certificate for children's safety. Is it expensive you think?
Social Media marketing can add up too.

2nd Edition of Keys to the Capitals with 500 unit minimum from our manufacturer in Pahrump, NV BoardGameManufacturer.com
$14.50 per unit manufactured on 500 units.
$2000 for Shipping from China
US Consumer Protection Act Certificate
Social Media marketing
Amazon storage and fees in Filfillment Center.

The more backers the more units I can order and cheaper per unit.

Great chance to succeed due to factory having the set up to make more games and 2 month frame to produce. First edition required 6 months.

We require your Kickstarter assistance!
I make $888 a month on Social Security Disability Insurance
I am a 60 year old with Autism Spectrum Disorder and very creative mind
I am a full time caregiver to my 90 year old mother and requirements needed to run a household
I work a lot at home to make my company a success using online ecommerce procedures
I donate to my favorite charity Autism Speaks when possible
My speech impediment limits me to make huge local sales but I do sell games in person but I do make business calls most days.
I need to go to local Mom and Pop stores but I don't have time, my mother comes before business but she doesn't like me being online all the time
I go after my dreams and I did with Amazon Prime
I have a local news story coming after the holidays connecting my Autism Spectrum and my ability to invent this game. I seen the reporter by our fire station next door which had a sewage leak 10/1/16 and we had a leak above our kitchen with major damage. I saw the opportunity when I seen it and the reporter saw my game I invented and I handed him a business card.
60 Minutes next?
We are low income Californian's and own our house.
Trust me I got my disabled mother(RA) to age 90 and have lived with Asperger's Syndrome my whole life. More awareness needed on that condition but more is being done these years.
Without Kickstarter backers I will end with 1500 units for now. Play the game once and I guarantee you will enjoy it with family and friends. My relatives in Oklahoma love the game and were addicted.
Please be my guest and give me honest feedback I can use when you buy my First Edition on Amazon or my website.
Some very interesting rewards available that don't need shipping.
You can help build my Capital Keys, LLC with making Keys to the Capitals a household name. My life is a comeback story if this was a 1991 dream of mine.
