About

INTRODUCTION

To tell you the truth, I've been working on Daddy's Diner Game ever since I became a father more than 20 years ago. But, not in any formal way...until now.

Over the years, I've been the unofficial owner of Daddy's Diner in my own home. More than what I do at mealtime, I've become "famous" (in my house anyway) for my "snack sampler." The snack sampler was created by me and for my kids to turn snack time into something more exciting than just the same ole thing. 

"IN A NUTSHELL"

A game that turns mealtime or snack time with kids into an experience KIDS WILL NEVER FORGET and transforms Dad into the star chef and entertainer of his VERY OWN Daddy's Diner! It's quality time with Dad. 

WHAT'S IN THE GAME?

I've taken elements from a real diner (the chef's hat, apron, placement, specials board, and order pad) and have combined it with other simple, yet meaningful things that will entertain the kids (balloons, jokes, recipes with fun names, entrees, and desserts). You can make Daddy's Diner Game as "involved" or as "efficient" as you wish. Prep time can be as short as 5 minutes to as long as you want. 

DAD IS THE STAR CHEF & ENTERTAINER

Honestly though, the secret sauce is Dads "performance." The more "entertaining" and into it I've gotten, the more my kids seem to enjoy it. I've noticed that the "corny-er" I am, the more they say "I'm so embarrassed" but mean, "I'll remember this quality time you've spent with me for the rest of my life." 

I NEED YOUR HELP

I've started this Kickstarter campaign because I need the money to create a minimum number of games. Based on the research I've done (and the contacts I've made) I need to place an order for 1,500 sets of everything I need for the games. Any extra money will be needed to assemble the games (no game manufacturer on the planet is capable of doing game boards and chefs hats together so it's more involved to get the games packaged and shipped :). I'd also like to manufacturer a few extra games so I have additional inventory.

COOL REWARDS FOR EVERYONE!

That's about it. I've created a variety of rewards in case you feel compelled to purchase more than one. I'm certainly grateful for you even reading this far and hope you consider supporting my campaign. 

I hope the video helps and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have. Again, thank you for your time and interest in Daddy's Diners Game. I appreciate your support and any positive word of mouth you can share. 

Take Care,

Scott (my friends call me Scooter) 

Proud owner of a Daddy's Diner

THE FAMOUS SNACK SAMPLER

Here's what I do: I first determine how many people will be eating my snack sampler. Then, I simply go into the pantry, refrigerator, cabinets, or wherever and pick out a variety of "snacks" and put them on a big plate (Occasionally I'll even go to the grocery store and pick up a surprise or two). I keep it a secret (I've been known to take a special request or two) until the big reveal. Finally, I'll bring the big plate into the room with lots of options, in small quantities.  It's always gotten a great response. 

There have also been times where I've cooked a meal. When I do, I try and make the experience a little more lively than normal. That's the idea behind Daddy's Diner Game.

Note: The T-shirt, Hat, and Sign may look slightly different in person. These are prototype products, but we will do what we can to make sure these are materially similar to what is shown here. Thank you for your understanding.

Risks and challenges

I've connected with several vendors and have gotten pricing on all components of the game. I have researched the vendors and have selected ones, based on ratings, that will likely do what they promise. I have also been given an expected time of production schedule and have added to that so I do not miss my promised deadline(s) to all of you. Finally, I have been given price quotes on each component and have made sure the contributions I get from all of you will cover all of the necessary expenses required to make and deliver these games and rewards.

While I believe the manufacturing of the box and components are all fairly straight-forward, this will be my first time creating a product like this. I expect challenges and obstacles, but feel I have adequately identified the vendors who will help me deliver Daddy's Diner Game on or ahead of schedule.

If you have additional questions/concerns of feel I'm missing something, please let me know.
