About

 Hello Dear KS Backers - 

As we all know, the first week of the campaign is most important when it comes to determining whether or not a project will fund. Sadly, our numbers have not been the best, so we've decided to shut this down - for now. 

However, we are aware that some of you would like to stay informed regarding what our next move is, and what our future plans look like. As such, we will not be cancelling the campaign - but we have disabled all reward levels except for the updates. You won't be charged the backed amount at the end, but you will receive updates ! 

In the beginning was the Power, and power was good. It resided in the tensions raised from the frustrations of humans when separated from their beloved pairs of socks. Some came to love, even to crave the feeling of that power. From that desire came forth a cabal as old as time, the Bord of Gobcorp, dedicated to the gathering of the mighty Sock energies, to an end that everyone fears but none truly understand..

The Rules Of Socks! The Game
The Rules Of Socks! The Game
  • Each Sock card has two faces, representing its location. - the Room, or the Nest. When a Sock is in a player’s room, it is vulnerable to other players' actions. However, when the Sock has been nested, it is protected from everything... - Except from the dreaded matching sock.

At the start of the game, place all the socks with the room side facing up in the center of the table. They make up the Sock Drawer. Deal 5 action cards to each player, face down, and place the rest of the action cards in the middle of the table next to the Sock Drawer.

Socks! The Game is born from a self-imposed non-work holiday where the plan was to essentially flop around and not do anything. Except of course that spawned idle conversation, and speculations on the reasons behind why there's always that odd sock hanging around after a good big laundry run. It had to be some sort of mysterious grabby creature that was extra sneaky, and really needed to get its grubby paws on those nice clean freshly laundered socks. And thus Socks! The Game was born. (So much for not doing work).  

We've seen shadows - but we've never managed to catch them in the act.

Risks and challenges

This is a standard print run of a card game that is fully designed, and print specs have been sent to various printers for quotes already. As such, there is minimal risk in the production itself short of the printers catching fire or some other grim eventuality.

However, logistics is potentially a challenge if an extraordinarily large print run should result (you guys will be responsible for that, so you will know right as it happens), and may result in delayed shipping of the products. We will work hard with our logistics partners to mitigate any delays resulting from that eventuality.

That said, should any complications arise, you will be the first to know, firsthand here on Kickstarter. We pledge to do our level best to make things work, and hope you will be along to make this work out!
