Hey Everybody!

It was a great morning here at my house when the FedEx Driver showed up with a package from overseas that I knew was from our manufacturer! I couldn't wait to open it but I had to be patient since one of the most important aspects is weighing the game so that I can get an accurate idea of what the game will cost to send out to you the backers. 

After some careful weighing the fun part was finally here. I have to tell you that I wish I could share this moment with each and everyone of you. This game started as an idea over a year ago and it is always a very special feeling when you tear off the shrink wrap and crack the box top for the first time. I am very happy with the entire production and the quality is really top notch. I can't wait to play it for the first time.

With everything looking good the last part of final production can begin and the games will be on their way stateside by the end of the month. I will be sending out surveys shortly after Christmas so keep an eye on your e-mail. Until then on behalf of my wife and I we wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Crash Games!

-Patrick & Jessica Nickell

      OMG, this looks amazing! I can't wait for my copy! For a game that is mostly sepia tones, it is actually really colorful!

      I am not ashamed to admit I did a mix of squeal and a giggle- a squeegle, if you will- when I saw the first image. Then I looked at every picture and said "oooooooooohhhh". Just like the little guys in the claw macine in Toy Story. My cubicle neighbor laughed when she heard it and said she expected me to say "The claw".

      This game looks too cool! I cannot wait to pop this puppy open and share the fun with my friends.

      Happy holidays!
