Miss the campaign? It's probably too late to buy!

When Cutie Met Patootie is a Kickstarter Exclusive Game. That means the only copies of this game are available via Kickstarter. In 2019, I will launch Game Two of the Entanglement Series, Children of the Wildlight. When Cutie Met Patootie may be available in that campaign as an add-on, but that decision has not been finalized. Stay tuned for more announcements by subscribing to The Daniel Zayas Company newsletter! Every new subscriber adds $1 to the money headed to The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International from me in December!

You can read the full preview from Rob Kalajian on his blog, A Pawn's Perspective. Also, check out his solo play video below!

In Chapter One, we learn of the Visitors, and how they arrived on Earth. What dangers await?

In Chapter Two, we learn of the Citizens of Kodiak Harbor and how Cutie gets mixed up in this adventure!

In Chapter Three, we learn of the evil mage, Rewind, and his ability to corrupt our mysterious glowing face to his bidding! What dangers await us in the final chapter?

 In Chapter Four, our heroes have made their way almost to the top of the mountain, but watch out! Rewind has caught up with them! What dangers will befall our heroes in the final chapter of When Cutie Met Patootie?

Shipping is super simple on this campaign. US is FREE, EU/UK is $8, CA and Mexico is $9, AU/NZ is $10, and affordable rates everywhere else! If you prefer to avoid the shipping entirely, have your approved Friendly Local Game Shop pledge for the retail bulk buy option!

Risks and challenges

This will be my first published game under The Daniel Zayas Company banner, but it is far from my first experience on the Kickstarter platform or the board game industry. I have officially collaborated on multiple campaigns as a verified Kickstarter Expert for more than a year, and before that, I helped launch 10 campaigns for Eagle-Gryphon Games as their Marketing Director. I also currently work as the US Sales Manager for LongPack Games Manufacturing.

When Cutie Met Patootie is 95% complete. After the campaign's successful completion, I will have the artist get to work on the Citizens of Kodiak Harbor promo cards as well as do a couple UX touchups on the graphic design of the cards. The quotes are in from LongPack Games on production, and I have multiple quotes in place for fulfillment to backers. There really isn't much left to do on the creative side to get this in your hands. It will be mostly logistics from here on out.

As a backer, please expect monthly updates until the campaign fully fulfills. Delays are part of the process, but I have built in enough lead time that I am confident we will ship the games on time or beforehand. I consider you the backer as an integral part of this project for your investment and confidence in me. I want to be as transparent as possible with you through every step of the adventure.

Thanks for your support and I am excited to bring When Cutie Met Patootie to your table!
