Final Week of Pairs

Comment

Good morning, Cow backers.

This is just a quick note to remind you that Pairs, the current Cheapass Games Kickstarter project, is starting its final week.

We have unlocked nearly all of our major stretch goals, so there will be as many as eleven different versions of Pairs to choose from, as well as a completely different game, FALLING. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Three Pairs decks based on Patrick Rothfuss' Name of the Wind series.
  • Professor Elemental Pairs deck by Unexploded Cow artist Cheyenne Wright
  • Decks by Echo Chernik, John Kovalic, and Phil Foglio
  • A new edition of the Cheapass Games classic real time card game, FALLING.

Please visit the campaign if you haven't already, and thanks for your support!

James Ernest, Cheapass Games

Pairs is Live!

Greetings, Unexploded Cow backers.  

If you're also a backer of one of our other projects, I apologize for the double-mail. But I wanted to let you know that our newest Kickstarter project, Pairs, is online.  

Pairs is a "New Classic Pub Game," a simple card game that plays in 5 minutes. The first deck is based on the fantasy world of Patrick Rothfuss, but more decks and even entire games (including a new edition of FALLING) will be added as stretch goals.  

Please check it out, and thanks again for your support!  

James Ernest, Cheapass Games

Get Lucky is Live!

Hi, Cow backers.  

In case you haven't noticed (and sorry for the redundancy if you have), the Get Lucky Kickstarter project is live right now, at:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cheapassgames/get-lucky-the-kill-doctor-lucky-card-game 

We're already very close to our basic funding goal, but of course we can use all the help we can get, to make the game components as good as they can be (and to unlock some fun stretch goals at the higher end). 

Also, if you haven't tried it, take a look at our "New classic pub game," Pairs:

http://cheapass.com/freegames/pairs 

This is a totally free new game that you can try with your own cards (if you have three matching poker decks) or with our lovely print-and-play cards. Pairs is likely to be our next Kickstarter project, so this is like a sneak preview! 

Take a look at these new games and tell all your friends!

Howdy, cow backers.

This is just a quick reminder that our next Kickstarter project, Get Lucky, will be launching on Friday October 18. 

Get Lucky is the Kill Doctor Lucky card game, a brand new game based on our extremely popular board game.

You can learn more about it at the Get Lucky product page at cheapass.com. 

And don't forget to subscribe to our newsletter for more updates and information from Cheapass Games! 

Thanks, and we'll see you on Friday!

Howdy, Cow Backers.

As you might know, Deadwood Studios, USA is about to ship this month. (Yes, many of you also get those updates. Sorry for the double-hit). 

This is a note to let everyone know that we have a new Cheapass Games mailing list. Please click here to subscribe

Our newsletter, Shameless, will be a roughly twice-monthly email with news about Cheapass Games: new products, convention appearances, and so on. If that's the kind of information you'd like, there's no better way to get it. (Unless you like camping out at our Facebook page, which you're also welcome to do.)

Thanks again for supporting Cheapass Games, and please look for our next Kickstarter campaign sometime this Fall. Chances are good that we'll be doing a fundraiser for Get Lucky, the Kill Doctor Lucky card game.

Meanwhile, keep playing Unexploded Cow! We're always thrilled to hear about how much fun our players are having. 

If you'll be at Gen Con, stop by the Cheapass Games booth (#1359) and meet the game designers, James Ernest and Paul Peterson. You can also learn all the new Cheapass Games, including Fish Cook, Veritas, and Deadwood Studios, USA. Hope to see you there!
