Notes

  • Solo and 2-Player Variant will be revealed in the campaign!
  • All cards and notable games are subject to change based on designer approval!

Step 1: You get 3 cards (That was easy!)

Step 2: Mime the mechanisms using the components, other players will guess 2 of them. (Ok, that was a bit harder)

Step 3:  Whoever guesses each mechanism gets that card as points. If two are guessed, the clue giver keeps one as a point. First to 5 points wins!  (Well now, that was a challenge!)

List of current cards. Help suggest Mechanism Cards to be added to this game.

Upgrade Tasks are social goals to be posted as public hyperlinks/text in the comments of this campaign (#MechanismsGame). Be sure to include the challenge title in your submissions so we can easily credit the campaign! New tasks will be unlocked as these are completed!

We take no responsibility for injuries or hurt feelings. 

Shipping will be charged after the Kickstarter campaign via Pledge Manager. We will use fulfillment providers to ensure packages arrive safely, securely, and customs-friendly. Below are estimated prices. We expect to update the rates as the campaign progresses.

RETAILERS: If you are interested in selling Mechanisms or When Cutie Met Patootie in your store, please email dmzayasplus@gmail.com expressing your interest. (Mechanisms: MSRP $29.99 USD, When Cutie Met Patootie: MSRP $29.99 USD, 6 Minimum Copies per order, mixed shipments accepted)

Dan Zayas: Daniel Zayas makes games and takes selfies... and he is all out of selfies at the moment.

Derek Funkhouser: Derek was too busy doing livestreams as the co-host of Board Game Spotlight to write his own bio, so we get to make up strange facts about him, such as his famous banana pancake recipe he will share with us in the comments.

Bryce Cook: A bit of this, a bit of that, a dash of spice and a ground up unicorn horn and you have a meatsack known as Bryce.  Bryce does 2D and 3D art, graphics, layout, gifs, videos, planning, unplanning, replanning, game stuff and Kickstarter stuff.  You can contact him via  Facebook if you want to mail him tasks or ask him to punch-fight a bear for money. 

He most certainly will.  

When Cutie Met Patootie was released on Kickstarter earlier this year and is a Kickstarter Exclusive Game. That means that it will only ever be available from The Daniel Zayas Company as an add-on on future Kickstarter campaigns. Use the available pledge levels to add When Cutie Met Patootie to your reward.

This is the end of the campaign. While you are here, why not add to our meaningless social metrics?

Risks and challenges

Mechanisms is a complete game. After the Kickstarter campaign, the only thing left to complete is print files for manufacturing and submission to the manufacturer. Fulfillment and production can always be delayed, but based on my experience, I know I can get this game made and in your home by April 2019. If you already backed When Cutie Met Patootie, you'll know I have a similar fulfillment timeframe and plans to send these projects together, saving overall costs on shipping both projects.

Refunds! After the campaign ends and before the time the boats leave the port in China, I am happy to offer a refund on your pledge minus the 10% cost of doing business on Kickstarter. After the boats leave the port, however, the game(s) are on their way to you and you must receive the games.

If you have a problem with your order, please email me directly at dmzayasplus@gmail.com or use Kickstarter's messaging service. If you are a third-party, manufacturer, or marketing service, all of my partners have more or less been decided, within a small range of secondary possibilities. If you contact me, I will waste your time with idiotic replies until such time that you realize you will not be able to do business with me. You have been warned.

Be excellent to each other and let's make a game!
