About

What is Noun Bite?

It is a fun card game that helps build vocabulary, improve spelling and develop the skill of anagramming.  It also polishes the skill of strategic thinking and best of all, it helps bond the family.

Two  or more people compete to spell most number of words using the most number of cards. It is unique that anyone can capture ('Bite') others' words by creating new ones from the spelled ones at any time, which makes the game fast pace and fun.

The person who has the most vocabulary may not necessarily win because smart use of special cards can turn the tide very quickly.

I played 'Scrabble' (tm),  'Uno' (tm) and many other games when I was young. I always wanted to create one by myself and therefore, I take this opportunity to design Noun Bite for my daughter. Hopefully, it will be her (and your) favorite card game.

How to play?

Here are the rules

Is it safe for kids?

Yes. We will use high quality ink and paper that the product will meet toy safety standard. As we all know that USA's regulation is probably the most stringent in the world. For more details, please refer to ASTM Toy Safety Standard  F963-11 (which was approved a few months ago).

In addition, the printing company has been qualified for ISO 9001 (quality management ) since 2001 and they have been shipping products worldwide and meeting other countries' standards (including EU's) for years.

What is the money going to be used for?

It will partially cover the cost for printing, packaging and shipping the cards. It is economical to make the cards only if we make at least 1000 decks. The cards will be produced in Hong Kong, China using high quality paper and ink. The printing company is ready to start as soon as the funding is available.

Free copies for schools

If more than $5000 is raised, I will donate at least 200 copies of the game to schools in United States. For every additional $2500 raised beyond the $5000 mark,  I will donate 100 more copies.

Express Delivery

For faster delivery, cards will be shipped by airmail instead of by ship from Hong Kong to USA  for the supporters who made the pledge for 'One Deck Express' or 'Two Decks Express'. That's how one month is saved.

If we exceed our fund raising goal by a wide margin, cost saving may allow faster shipping from Hong Kong to United States for all supporters. Please order more decks and I am sure your friends and family will like them.

Thank you

Noun Bite will not come to life without your support. Any help will be highly appreciated.
