About BlockYou!

BlockYou! is a card game for 1-5 players. In BlockYou! you need to outsmart your friends and family by placing your colored, blocked cards on the playing field faster than everyone else. Twist your cards, try not to block yourself and place them on the playing field matching all colors. Block your friends and win the game. (Dutch translation beneath, Nederlandse vertaling beneden)

Why we want to make this game for you?

Our main goal is to bring people together by creating cool and fun games! By putting our ideas into reality we want to put our positive energy, creativity and passion into card games and at the end into all players. We think it is awesome if hundreds of players have fun playing BlockYou! worldwide on their Saturday evening. That would make our Saturday evening awesome too!

How to play BlockYou!

Our stretch goals

Our first goal is to hit the 3.000 euro. After that, all possibilities are open. Colored rules, translations to other languages, hard case box, sand-timer and much more.

What's in the box?

The box contains 88 unique colored cards and rules in English. The box is easy to take along and fits into the palm of your hand. When we manage to hit a few stretch goals we'll be able to provide you a hard case box, a sand-timer or even 2 decks.

What's in it for you?

When you back us we ensure you will receive a copy (or more copies) of the game, including all stretch goals. When you open the box, your name will shine on the inside (first 1000 backers). This way we want to thank you for your help and make sure you a are part of BlockYou! history. 

For who is this game?

For everyone who likes an energetic, cool game. Age doesn't matter, because we play tested with every age. And we've concluded that everyone understands colors and fun!

We hope we caught your interest. Back us now and receive your own copy of the game! ThankYou!

Nederlands (Dutch explanation of Kickstarter)

Dag allen, super dat jullie even een kijkje komen nemen op Kickstarter. Zoals jullie waarschijnlijk wel hebben gelezen of hebben vernomen staat BlockYou! vanaf 29 april op Kickstarter. Aangezien Kickstarter relatief nieuw is in Nederland heb ik hieronder in het kort uitgelegd wat het precies inhoud.

Kickstarter is een crowdfund platform waarop iedereen die een 'creatief' idee heeft deze met de wereld kan delen. Dit kan een film, cd of in dit geval een kaartspel zijn. Hierbij stelt de ontwerper/bedenker een doel die behaald moet worden. In ons geval 3000,- euro. Grofweg houdt dit in dat we ongeveer 300 spellen moeten verkopen. Iemand die ons steunt wordt ook wel backer genoemd en kan door middel van financiële steun het spel vooraf kopen. Het project loopt 30 dagen en als na 30 dagen het doel is behaald wordt dit uitbetaald aan de bedenker. Het is dan uiteraard de bedoeling dat de spellen gerealiseerd worden en de backer deze thuis gestuurd krijgt. In principe koop je jouw spel vooraf en wordt door middel van Kickstarter de levensvatbaarheid van het spel getest. Om die reden zijn komende 30 dagen natuurlijk spannend. Mocht het niet lukken, wat we uiteraard niet hopen, worden we niet uitbetaald en zal er ook niets worden afgeschreven van de backer's rekening. Een veilig concept dus. Helaas kun je alleen nog via de VISA of Mastercard (creditcard) betalen, dus mocht je deze niet hebben of niet willen gebruiken en je wilt ons wel graag 'backen', dan graag even een mailtje naar klappe@gmail.com Dan kunnen we dit via gewone bankoverschrijving ook regelen. Dan zorgen we dat het bedrag er via een andere creditcard alsnog wordt bijgeschreven. 

Over BlockYou!

BlockYou! is een kaartspel voor 1 tot 5 spelers. Het is de bedoeling dat je jouw vrienden en familie sneller af bent door de geblokte kaarten zo snel mogelijk te plaatsen op het speelveld. Door het draaien van de kaarten, het blokkeren van je tegenspelers moet jij zorgen dat je als eerste je 12 kaarten wegspeelt. Dan win je het spel!

Stretchgoals

Stretchgoals zijn eigenlijk nieuwe doelen. Zodra we de 3000,- euro hebben behaald kunnen we een nieuw doel stellen, zoals in ons geval 5000,- euro. Hoe meer spellen we verkopen, hoe goedkoper de productie van het spel zal worden. Het geld wat overblijft investeren we weer in het verbeteren van het product. Zo zijn nieuwe doelen in ons geval het in kleur drukken van de spelregels en het Nederlands en Engels. Daarnaast is er de wens om het in verschillende talen te vertalen. 

Spelregels

De spelregels in het Nederlands zijn binnenkort te downloaden vanaf deze plek.

Wat krijg je precies?

Afhankelijk van de stretchgoals krijg je als backer uiteindelijk het spel gratis thuis gestuurd. Deze bestaat uit 88 speelkaarten, de spelregels en het doosje. Bij het behalen van meerdere stretchgoals zou het kunnen dat we bijvoorbeeld een zandloper toevoegen. Verder zorgen we ervoor dat jouw naam in de binnenkant van het doosje komt te staan (eerste 1000 backers). Op die manier wordt je 'vereeuwigd' met/in het spelletje.

Mocht je nog vragen hebben, dan verneem ik deze uiteraard graag.

Risks and challenges

Our primary goal is to create a quality game for you. Quality comes with challenges, but we're confident that we already tackled most of them. The design is ready, the communication with the presser is very good and we have good insight in all extra costs.

If problems do arise, our main concern is to tackle the problem and send all backers an update about the situation. Maybe some backers have experience with the problem and together we will try to solve the problem as soon as possible.

Communication is the key!
