About

The aim is to create a poker deck that capitalises on all of the great research and the stunning art behind the Ghost Hunter serise. This will be a 54 card deck in which the suits have each been given to a different set of creatures from folklore. Clubs are now Monsters, Diamonds Witches, Hearts Vampires and Spades Spirits. The picture cards of each suit will feature the appropriate creature.

 

This project uses a community based design model. Backers are invited to join the Design Commttee on Facebook. When they do they are able to participate in a series of votes to select the artwork that will make it on to the cards. Backers also use the group to discuss the project and suggest ways to improve it. This design model has proved very popular and quite fun on Ghastly Games' previous projects.

 

 

The art is a reworking into playing card format of the stunning images produced by Augustinas Raginskis on the Ghost Hunter projects. So far we have selected one example from each suit to demonstrate the style, but ultimately the final images will decided by the backers.

 

With this project the aim is superior quality rather than quantity. So each stretch goal is aimed at incrementally improving the quality of the card deck.

 

These are extra products from Ghastly Games that you can add to your pledges. Simply manage your pledge and increase the total by the cost of all of the add ons that you would like. When it is time to fulfil your pledges you will be sent a survey that asks you to select the add ons that you have paid for.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Every endeavour has risks associated to it, if it didn't then it wouldn't be worth doing, but rest assured that I have done the following to mitigate the risks of bringing you the Fiends of Folklore.

The sums have been done, the quotes from manufacturers and distributors are in, So there is contingency built into the budget.

I have chosen to add the postage after fulfilment as it is the only expense in £s and isolating from the main budget will protect the project from any currency flutuations as a result of Brexit.

I will be following the same model that I used to deliver the three of the four previous successful projects. So the contacts are in place and the timelines are familiar and I have a great relationship with the manufacturer.

The only genuine risk is the project being too sucessful and thus taking longer to pack up and ship out than expected.
