Bag of Spiders features eight  silly games that we have curated for your enjoyment, but you will find that there are many uses for your bag of spiders.

  •  Bag of Spiders, a press your luck game for 2 - 5 players by Jeremy Davis
  •  Last Spider Standing, a rolling war game for 2 - 4 players by Jeremy Davis
  •  Squish, a social awkwardness game for 5 - 10 players by Carla Kopp and Jeremy Davis
  •  Spider Leap, a dexterity game for 2 - 4 players by Jeremy Davis and Shawn Stankewich
  •  Spider Sculptors, an artistic game for 4 - 8 players by Shawn Stankewich, Nick Kopp, and Jeremy Davis
  •  Spider Poker, a bluffing game for 3 - 5 players by Zach Hoekstra
  •  Spider-cala, an abstract game for 2 players by Zach Hoekstra
  •  Mississippi Jackson And The Curse Of The Squeaky Inflatable Spiders, a very silly RPG for 2-6 players by Zach Hoekstra

But wait! It doesn't stop there. We also have games that didn't make it into the top 8 and are actually quite terrible. You will also receive 8 really bad games to play with Bag of Spiders. 

  •  Spider Pick Up by Katie Khau
  •  Bathroom Spiders, a co-op game by Carla Kopp
  •  Memory Spiders, a solo game by Liz Davidson

Do you have an amazing game in mind that only needs spiders and a bag? This is your moment! You can become a published game designer with this reward. We require that you submit your game within two weeks of the KS end and we will be developing the game to make sure it's up to our standard. 

Also comes with the Bag of Spiders game and Jumping Spider expansion.  


People sometimes wonder why they should back a Kickstarter campaign instead of waiting to get the game later in retail. The most important reason not to wait with Bag of Spiders is that even if Bag of Spiders funds, we don't plan on the game going into distribution. If you wait, you may end up missing out, as we won’t have many extra copies to sell and unless your local store backs the campaign, they won’t be carrying it either.  

  •  Kickstarter Limited – Bag of Spiders might be very hard to find after the campaign, outside of select conventions.
  •  Help Us Improve Bag of Spiders – We have a ton of stretch goals planned to help improve the game for everyone! 

Most importantly, without you, Bag of Spiders would not get created. 

Bag of Spiders is a game we truly love and want to share with the world. We love playing and know you will, as well. 

We really appreciate your support in making our dream a reality.

We are currently planning on shipping these games out directly from the US for US shipments and from an international fulfillment company in the EU for the rest of the orders. 

*We are currently not planning to ship to the following areas: Mexico, Brazil, and Russia. 

We are happy to discuss group orders, but these need to be handled on a country-by-country basis. Please send us a direct message including country and number of copies to discuss.

We're looking forward to talking to you throughout this Kickstarter and after! Please feel free to reach out to us directly, in the comments, or in a variety of methods on social media if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. We would love to hear from you!

MEDIA COVERAGE 

THANK YOU SO MUCH! 

We'd also like to thank everyone who has helped, laughed at or mocked this project, but special thanks go to Justin Banger for the amazing stop motion spider video and Shane Jewell from Sugarwolf Sound for the masterful job on the jingle that Jamie wrote the lyrics for.     

Risks and challenges

If you've gotten this far, you are seriously considering supporting us and we really appreciate that. We also want you to know that we take this very seriously.

Although the people behind Bag of Spiders have already successfully funded and delivered multiple projects on Kickstarter, Bag of Spiders will have it's own unique issues. We would love if everything went smoothly, but we are also trying to be prepared for any problem that could arise.

If things run behind schedule, we think the best approach is to always be up front and communicative with backers. It's our goal to make post-campaign updates part of this experience and we plan to update monthly until the game has shipped to backers in order to keep backers informed of the progress of Bag of Spiders.
