About

Hi everyone! My name is Tashiah and I am the Founder of Color Swap LLC. Color Swap LLC currently houses one game which is Color Swap Cards. A little bit about myself is that I'm a mechanical engineer that graduated from Temple University. While in school I learned that I wanted to do more than just engineering and set forth to figure out how else I could impact the world. Four years later Color Swap Cards was born to what you all see now!

Color Swap Cards was a journey that first began in December 2018. During a brainstorming session, I realized there were no card games that focus on colors! Color Swap Cards is a card game that focuses on primary colors and secondary colors. In order to discard a card the player must need to try to create a secondary color or reverse a secondary color. The simple prototyping began with pen and paper to see if what I was thinking actually made sense. Once I worked through the game concept I designed my first prototype which was not as successful as I had hoped! 

First Prototype

My initial failure in prototype made me learn how to design better than I ever imagined. I created three other prototypes over the course of the design process and landed on our final product.

The game rules were solidified through game testing with friends, family and more recently game shops. There are some pictures below of different game testing spaces! We have tested at cookouts, kids birthday parties, and a board game shop! The game rules can be seen below. I created an educational game that is also super fun for adults!

Board Game Shop Game Testing

My plan with the amount of money I raise is to purchase my first batch of decks. I found a manufacturer that is able produce and currently has a 9 month lead time. I truly believe this game can be one of the next big hits with the right funding involved. My initial funding goal is $10,000 which will be enough to purchase 1,000 decks. Additionally, with the funding, I will be able to buy promotional items to assist in going to teacher conventions and educational game trade shows. One of the best methods of selling the game is to let people play. Therefore touring around to different schools is in the plan as well.  Some stretch goals will be announced later in the campaign if we get pass our initial goal. 

How to Play

Below you will find the rules of how to play as well as instructional videos on how to use each card. Anyone over the age of 7 can play this card game. One deck of cards can have up to 10 people playing. With an average play time of 15 minutes you and your friends can play all day!

Color Swap Cards is more than just another game for game night. It's an experience for a family to create memories with everyone. No matter how old or how young everyone can enjoy this game. I'm passionate about this game because while it is fun, it's also educational and that's a huge positive. This is a game that can  also be used in curriculum to aide in teaching. I hope you all feel the same way about this game and make sure you reach out if you have any questions! Thank you all for your support!

Some reviews that we've gotten during our play testing are below. We have been able to play for friends and family that range in education level and age! 

Test Play

"Great game to use to help students remember their primary and secondary colors"

"Appreciate that a color matching game has the initials of the colors on the corners so colorblind people such as myself can still play"

Test Play

"Fun game that will definitely have its own set of house rules when I get my first deck"

Risks and challenges

Our risk is being compared to other similar games! While our game is bubbly and fun in design, it is more strategic than a lot of our competitors. Going up against some of the big brand name companies is going to be a battle.

Marketing is also going to be huge to have users understand how to properly play the game. Not stacking the same color on top of each other is a huge change! We are committed to marketing by videos and in person demonstrations.
