About

FURBALL RAMPAGE is a fast-paced and versatile card game centered around strategy and interactivity. The goal of the game is to collect 800 points or 3 Victory Cards, though winning requires players to adapt as their characters are strengthened by weapon add-ons or weakened by enemy attacks. This game is for 3 to 6 players and appropriate for children who are old enough to understand basic card game strategies. What makes our game unique is that it is incredibly well balanced. How you use cards matter but never to the extent that games can be won outright with a few experienced maneuvers. The many methods to collect points and attack opponents makes this game easy to digest and fun even for new players. The games are consistently between 25 and 35 minutes and easy to set up.  

So now that you have a basic understanding of what this game is about, check out all the great game components you will receive!

Watch this quick teaser video to first hand what these cute adorable creatures have gone through and why they are rampaging.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is and has been the huge commitment to the project without knowing if it will every payoff. Like we discussed in our video, we wanted a quality game that held its own against all the games we play and love.

We decided early on that this would not be a project that we only had an 'idea' for but needed money to make it happen. I don't believe that's how great products happen. We spent countless hours creating and re-working...then re-working some more. The result is that we trust this product, and that is why every penny spent on it has been our own.

We have spent hundreds of dollars to print the game anew for each testing phase. This grew to be rather expensive when we reached the phase were we were shopping for a printing company. It is not cheap paying for a single run of a board game.

CHALLENGES:

The biggest challenge has been finding ways to get this game out to people. Our first Kickstarter attempt did not work and so it became apparent that even more effort needed to be spent on reaching the appropriate market.

We were given some general feedback regarding the creation of some additional assets.

-Some people asked for peer reviews. We've hand the game out to peers and had them play and write a review. They are listed above.

-A general walk-through and set-up video was asked for. I made a new intro that is now our project video. The video details the highlights of game and contains action shots of the game being played.

Some people thought our price was too high. We lowered it.

NOTE: The comments we received were in regard to it being too
expensive for a card game. First, I searched high and low for the best quotes before posting our prices, and second, we firmly believe this is no ordinary card game. There are 6 sturdy score cards, which if put together are as big as a board game. There are 186 hand drawn cards, 4 dice, and punch-out tokens. The game weighs 1.5 pounds....it is a lot of material. The only way we could cut prices was to send the printing abroad.

Thus, with overseas printing there are alway unforeseen problems... mostly with timing. We have secured a printer that is very reliable and trust will do a great job on the games. We ask for additional patience on receiving the game as we are not only making hundreds of games but also having them shipped to the US where they were be separately packaged and shipped out again. We know you will love the game and it will totally be worth the wait!
