About


Krypto-nine is a short, strategic card game for awesome people.

It takes less than 2 minutes to learn the game! Watch this quick video or read below. :)

 There are two sections of game-play.

PART ONE

Players take turns using the cards in their hand to play sets of 9. (Eg: 6+3, 7+2, 5+4, and so on..)

Once the first player uses all their cards, the round ends and they are awarded a Victory Card, which allows them to do wacky things in the game and manipulate the game-play.

PART TWO

Players use their claimed Victory Cards to accumulate points to win the game.  For example:

- Make players stand up and dance!

- Choose a player to talk like a pirate for the rest of the game!

- Switch cards with another player!

Full rules are included =)

 Krypto-nine can be played with all ages and in any environment where you love to play your games!

 We personally love taking Krypto-nine to friend's places for game night, or outdoors t the beach or at the park.

It's the perfect travel size to take anywhere you go!

We have had some of you ask us why we don't have more items in our rewards. In short, including more items also increases the cost to you

While we would have loved to offer items like clothing, even more expansions and other Krypto-nine related rewards; we just can't justify the shipping costs at this time. We personally just don't feel right making our backers pay more when we can offer those items at a much better price after we have a successful campaign. 

Us trying to calculate shipping with multiple items

What we are offering instead:

So what we've decided to do is give a 15% discount code (one-time use) to everyone who backs our project! (Excluding merchandiser tier) 

This will allow you to go online post-campaign and grab whatever you want at a much cheaper price than everyone else is going to get a chance to! 

* Important note about shipping *

Before choosing a fulfillment partner, shipping around the world was very expensive, so the reward tiers reflected that. But now we are proud to announce we have found a partner who has been able to heavily reduce it for us!! 🤓

Unfortunately we cannot change the shipping in the tiers that have backers attached to them, so for everyone who pledges in the tiers that have the $20 shipping, we will give you a 40% off code after the campaign is over (instead of the regular 15%).

Thanks everyone!

Now you know what we're doing. But who are we?!

Hey everyone, this is Terence :) 

This won’t take long to read, I promise!

I would love to share my why with you. In the next three hours, I am going to tell you my reason for Kickstarting Krypto-nine.

KIDDING! It’s really short, I swear.

You’re about to learn why I am running this Kickstarter 🧐.

Krypto-nine was created years ago in 2014 and friends/family took notice pretty much right away. My closest supporters let me borrow money from them to turn the game from “dream stage” to what I’m calling “real-life stage”; and I managed to get my first 300 decks ordered!

When I got the decks in, it was like Christmas. I knew what was in the box, but opening it and seeing it for the first time, in real life?? There was no greater feeling.

It was the greatest accomplishment I had ever achieved to date. Sure I had done a ton of things I was proud of, but I always felt as if there was something more I needed to fulfill.

Over the next couple years, every time I left my room, I loaded up my bag with copies of Krypto-nine to go introduce my new baby to the world. 

I would show people after work, or in between buses on my transit ride; and most people snatched one up before we were even done play-testing! I was ecstatic!!

 Gamers and non-gamers alike loved it! 🥰 🤩 

As the decks were running out, I wanted to place a much larger order. Which obviously came with a much larger bill to cover.

I tried so hard to earn the money necessary to continue my dream, to the point where I took on a second job to try save enough. 

But the months went by, then the years… along with their paycheques. And while I progressed a TON and saved more than I ever thought possible… The money was always the thing that I couldn’t quite earn enough of. (Inflation is very real!!!)

Deep in my subconscious I thought “well maybe this wasn’t meant to be right now”, and my dream went into a box until “it was a better time”.

My poor baby....

Early this year, I had an "AHA" moment.

I remembered my why!! The reason I was trying so hard to do this in the first place!

I was at one of my jobs and something made me stop and look up. I looked up and noticed all my co-worker's faces. They all looked so... sad… 😢

Nobody wanted to be there 😔. Or it least it’s how it seemed. And that’s when it hit me. I asked myself...“When did I become okay with letting go of my dream?”

“When did I fall into the trap of working this hard at two jobs, until I had enough saved to pursue it!”

And then just like that… like wind changing course while parachuting… my mind did a complete 180° and I blew back on track.

I know that if I could get my game into the hands of enough people and make them laugh… even just for a few moments… then all this is would be worth it.

If I could find thousands of people and make their day, all at the exact same time, when they open the door and find the package with my game in it... then my dream would have come true!

Not only that, but I could use the knowledge I accumulated during that time to help out so many people! Especially the types of people who were right in front of my eyes at work. 👀

The people who have a dream, but might feel trapped. The ones who don’t know what to do, or who to ask... I could help all of them. My team and I could be integral parts of an endless amount of dreams actually coming true. 

Maybe I can't get to everyone personally, but the very least I could do is go all in and at least try... with just a little help. 😊


 Krypto-nine isn’t about selling a game, or pledging, or even what you’ll get by supporting us. When you hit that pledge button, you're helping my team and I get started.  

You’re joining our cause and joining a community bent on making this world a better place. 

You're becoming a part of our Eruptious family 👩‍👩‍👦‍👦.  and helping re-shape the future of our planet. 🌎

That’s where the funds collected in this campaign are going. And for that, I thank you.

Whether you pledge or not, I only ask two small favors. I ask that you send a message with your comments so I can grow and improve for next time; and also to share this campaign with your friends, so more awesome people like you can find us and learn about our cause. 🙏

 Thank you for reading!

-Terence

Risks and challenges

The main challenge we have considered is the cost of shipping the rewards within a reasonable cost and chosen delivery date. While we have factored in shipping all around the globe, along with coordinating with all of our manufacturers and partners, delays do happen and since this is our premier Kickstarter campaign, we will be learning every single day we're active (and beyond!).

We have already learned many lessons when it comes to manufacturing card games and we strongly believe we are ready for this next step!

There are certain parts of the process we can’t control. For example, sometimes packages get lost in shipping or held up in customs. That said, for each of these potential issues that we’ve identified, we are working on risk mitigation strategies (such as keeping buffer inventory and building extra time into our timelines for international orders). We really appreciate your patience with us as we’ve learned and grown so much through the process so far!

Refund Policy

All pledges can be refunded up to the completion of the Pledge Manager, no questions asked.
If the refund is asked more than 60 days after the end of the Kickstarter campaign, 10% will be deducted from the amount (corresponding to the charges incurred by Kickstarter and Stripe, since we will not be refunded of them at that point), and the refund will have to be done via PayPal instead of the Credit Card you used on Stripe.

Terms and Conditions

Any costs shown in CAD are based on the exchange rate in effect during the first day of the campaign, and may change during the campaign. The price reference to consider is the price in USD.

By pledging to this Kickstarter, you acknowledge that the final appearance, materials and content of the rewards (and the Kickstarter) are subject to change and may differ substantially from what is presented while the Kickstarter project is active.

You agree that our responsibility to you is to ship your reward as entered into our pledge manager system, that title and risk passes to you upon delivery to a common carrier for such shipment, and you are responsible for import duties or any other duties that may be payable to the relevant tax authorities, providing correct address information and ensuring this address is deliverable by normal methods.

Thank you!
