About

I'm am designing a fun and challenging football strategy board game that That any football fan will love to play.  A great board game for football fans of all ages.  Play face to face with a friend and see if you can outwit your opponent!  All the rules and action of a real pro football game!  Safeties, long bombs, two point conversions, onside kicks, it's all here.  The game takes no more than an hour to play, and is easy to set up and play.  The defense secretly selects it's play(specific run or pass defense), then the offense announces it's play (large selection of run and pass plays, as well as kicks).  A chart is consulted and a variety of dice are rolled to determine the result of the play.  If the defensive player guessed what the offense was going to do, chances are the offense will be stopped, but a roll of a die makes sure there's some variability in each play.  Turnovers and penalties are always possible on any play, and are decided by a spinner.

The game relies on a basic knowledge of how to play football, but is designed to be fun for both casual fans and armchair pros! No two games will ever be the same. The dice add a layer of uncertainty which makes every play outcome and every game unique.

I have vendors lined up to make the game, I just need to get them the money to make the prototypes and first run and make the game look and feel like a high quality board game.  The game is 100% written already, and has been play tested extensively to make sure it works logically.  Only another 4-6 hours of editing and fine tuning of the play charts and game mechanics are required.

I am in the business of manufacturing and contracting with vendors, so I know how to manage projects like this and make sure they get done correctly and on budget.  Help contribute to a game you'd love to play!

As for costs, to produce the first batch of 100 games, including all initial production costs for artwork, making the boards, dice, spinner, charts, boxes etc, the cost estimate is a minimum of $4500. This does not include any shipping or costs of rewards or my primary cost of artwork production.  Obviously after initial startup costs, the price per game will come way down.  This leaves $900 for other costs, since kickstarter and Amazon take a total of 10%, or $600.

Risks and challenges

The biggest hurdle I see would be manufacturing delays, or cost overruns due to changes in game design, however since I have already discussed the major issues with the manufacturers, this is highly unlikely. It's a straight forward board game that doesn't require anything particular. Having dealt with contract manufacturers many times before as part of my job, I'm very confident the work will be done correctly, on time and on budget.
