About

Our Kickstarter did not meet its goal but we are relaunching a new campaign for mid-late August 2015. Go to our new Kickstarter Campaign Preview Page and "Notify me on launch" so you are in the loop on relaunch.

Players are suburbanite homeowners trying to grow attractive lawns in front of their houses, starting with basic grass cards and adding ornaments of various kinds. Players draw cards and either play or store them in a public 'shed' for later. One card may be held secretly in hand. Some cards are played offensively on other players to steal or destroy their items, or add negative scoring to their lawns. Players have the option to trade cards on their turn and score bonus points by finishing the game with specific configurations of grass cards.

Team/Credits

Without the help of the following people this game wouldn't be as well-rounded as it is now:

Richard Courchesne, Jon-Paul Decosse, Sam Fraser, Byan Feller, Halifax Board Game Designers, Paul Saxberg. Family and Business Clients.

AND puppy Otto.

Risks and challenges

This is our first card game and Kickstarter campaign.

1. PLAYTESTING AND BALANCING
This game has been thoroughly play-tested for over a year, with a great amount of help from the Halifax Board Game Designers and other Board Game Design groups in Canada. We have put in 200+ hours of play-testing. We have play-tested from ages 8-70. From casual to hardcore gamers.

Before we began play-testing we did extensive data-modelling (that's fancy talk for spreadsheets) to ensure a balanced game from start to finish and with consecutive plays. We will not simply add cards unless it fits the game well.

2. PRINTING
We are working with an India company that specializes in printing card games and can deliver a game within 30-60 days from placement of order. We have ordered samples to ensure quality before placing our order.

If we can deliver our game to our backers in less than 90 days after funding, we will be thrilled!

3. FULFILLMENT AND SHIPPING
We have investigated Amazon fulfilment, private fulfilment and just shipping them ourselves. Currently, we are going with Ship Naked since they ship worldwide.

4. IN-HOUSE ARTWORK
All the artwork has been down in-house by Lisa and all the graphics have been prepped from Printing by Andrew. Having this stuff ready for our printers will streamline the production of our product

5. BUDGETING
We have asked other successful Kickstarter creators to see their breakdowns to ensure we don't forget any costs. We had delayed launching for 6 months until we felt confident that we correctly assessed all costs.

6. WHY WE'RE UNIQUE
This game was not constructed on-the-fly but is rooted with personal history. I used to maintain my grandparents lawn, and they couldn't sleep at night unless the grass was cut every other day. If their lawn wasn't maintained you could be sure they'd hear their neighbours squawking.

Lisa brings her unique art-style. Did you notice it is similar to The Simpsons? She's an avid fan (Seasons 1-8). I personally still think the best episode is the one with Frank Grimes. Lisa's favourite is the babysitter bandit.
