Production Begins Time Now! 

 Due to such high demand, we are only offering the 400-card deck and wounded Vet decks. In doing so, Disgruntled Decks ensures that rewards will be delivered in a timely manner, and that the business can grow at a responsible and realistic rate. Our Disgruntled backers deserve the best! 

 Now What? 

 Backer surveys will be sent out in the coming weeks in order to collect information needed to deliver rewards (e.g., addresses, custom messages for ammo cans, custom card requests, etc.). 

Disgruntled Decks: The Original Card Game For Veterans.

Disgruntled Decks is a card game for military service members and grizzled Veterans who enjoy getting together and laughing about their time in the service. 

I've titled this first deck "The Army Edition" because it features some topics that would be familiar to U.S. Army Soldiers and Veterans. However, there are more than enough general military cards to make the game enjoyable for service members and Veterans from any branch of the armed forces.

Disgruntled Decks can be played by itself or integrated with a Cards Against Humanity® deck.

I am aiming for a delivery date before July 4th because everyone should be able to play while celebrating America!

Bringing Veterans Together

It's no secret that service members and Veterans like to get together, have a few (well, maybe more than a few) drinks, and swap stories about deployment and the nonsense which accompanies military life.

With a unique blend of descriptive language and military themes, Disgruntled Decks gives one more reason for service members and Veterans to come together and talk about their shared experiences while having fun in the process.

I strongly believe that humor is healing, and some Veterans still have a good amount of healing left to do. I hope to provide some of that humor with Disgruntled Decks.

Playing the Game: So Easy the Infantry Can Do It!

The "Card Commander" will read aloud an OD green Mission Card and "Subordinate" players will submit their gray Course of Action (COA) cards with possible answers.

The Card Commander chooses the best COA regardless of the Subordinates' opinions, just like in the military!

You win by having the most COAs chosen. It's that simple!

 The Deck

The deck is composed of 90 OD green Mission Cards and 310 gray Course of Action cards. For those with poor ASVAB scores, that equals 400 cards!

Here are a few fun facts about the card design:

- The font is a typewriter font found on portable typewriters used during WWII. In other words, your grandpa killed Nazis and then typed out his AAR or a love letter in this font. 

- The "invasion star" found on the backs of the cards came into common usage towards the end of 1943 and was used by all Allied forces from the time of Normandy on. 

- The OD green color is identical to the color used to paint U.S. Army and other military vehicles during the early years of WWII

- The light gray color can be found in the U.S. Army branding toolkit.

 Why $15,000?

Ordering 500 Disgruntled Decks (the minimum order from our supplier) with custom boxes is expensive, and so is shipping them. After taking into account the various costs associated with all reward tiers, along with the 5% Kickstarter fee and 3-5% credit card processing fee, the realistic cost of delivering a quality product is just above the $14,000 mark. Murphy's Law states whatever can happen will, so the extra buffer will be set aside to cover any unexpected costs that may arise.

Any profit generated from this campaign will be put back into Disgruntled Decks LLC and used to: 1) support development of the upcoming editions; 2) order additional decks to satisfy increased demand, and; 3) offset costs associated with legal support.

Risks and challenges

I've been working for months with numerous members of the military community to generate card ideas and, quite simply, to just make a bad-ass game that service members and Veterans will enjoy. A lot of the leg work has already been done, and now it comes down to running a successful Kickstarter and delivering a great product.

You can count on me being as transparent as possible and submitting progress updates to keep everyone informed.
