WE HAVE MOVED CAMPAIGN LOCATIONS, CLICK THE LINK ABOVE
Why are we moving locations?
Even though we had launched our Kickstarter campaign, we continued to negotiate with our manufacturer and ended up with a brand new deal that dramatically lowered the cost of the game from $29 to $12! Since we can't edit existing pledges, we decided to stop the current campaign and activate a new one so EVERYONE can take advantage of the new price drop. We know it's a little risky as existing backers will have to reback our project, but one we felt worth while and you would all appreciate.
Thank you for backing our project! We know you'll love Brownie Points Card Game as much as we do!
Brownie Points Card Game is a highly strategic brownie-powered fast pace game that will raise blood pressure, cause squirts and send you to the Dog House. Players take turns drawing cards, Brownie Point Slap Attacking their opponents until someone earns the most points and wins the game.
The deck is made up of cards that let you send all your opponents to the Dog House, a Wild Card that immediately trumps the pile, and Brownie Squirt Cards that are the walk of shame.
The game gets more intense as the deck runs out of cards and players are scrambling to unload their hand. No hand is safe in this game. The Brownie Points Slap Attack is unforgiving, fast, and can sway a round in your favor immediately.
Here is the best Slap Attack so far!
The game was created by Jared and Tammy, a.k.a Jammy, that’s their Hollywood name so they can keep up with the Benifers, and their awesome offspring who were looking for a card game that that was strategic, fast, witty, funny, and flat out brutal. We think this game combines all the great things a card game should be and put together this Kickstarter campaign because we can’t build this without you.
So, if you’re into card games, brownies or embarrassing squirts and putting people in the dog house, please help everyone make this game a reality. We think you’ll love it as much as we do.
Hugs and squirts kisses,
- Jammy and Offspring
Here is the Video Version:
Brownie Points Card Game has been in the making for years, we just didn’t know it yet. Every time the family would sit down to play games they would always comment, “There’s got to be something better than this.” Taking matters into their own hands, Jared came home from work and told the Mrs. they aren’t leaving here until they have the start of an awesome game. They opened the game closet and looked at all the things they enjoyed about each game. Then it happened. Jared and Tammy started talking profusely and writing things down. Three hours later, the start of Brownie Points Card Game was born.
They called in the offspring and gathered around the table, made some demo cards and started playing. The Dog House was killing it! They knew this was the beginning of something amazing, but it was still missing something. We invited some friends over to help test our game and give some feedback. When Jared’s friend walked in the door he smacks Jared on the chest and yells, “Brownie Points!” That was it, that was the missing ingredient. From that moment on the Brownie Points Slap Attack was born and revolutionized the game speed and hurt feelings. It was beautiful!
Over the next few months, two important things happened: First, after neglecting family and social life, Jared developed a rule-set that started fine-tuning and brought the game to life. Second, two additional aspects of the game were brought to fruition; the four-card run juggernaut and the Get Out of the Dog House Free Card. This changed the game to exactly what we wanted; no hand is safe. We now had it all figured out; so, we thought.
Jammy and offspring went to Santa Cruz with some awesome friends who dared to test Brownie Points Card Game. This was the first beta test of the game using a big group of outsiders. After playing a dummy round, things kicked in gear and it became something fierce. Brownie Points Slap Attacks were in full force, getting thrown in the Dog House was raising blood pressure, then it happened. Someone smacked the table and yelled out “Brownie Points”, but didn’t have the correct cards. Someone yells out, “That should be a Hershey Squirt.” After hundreds of jokes and laughing until we couldn’t breathe, the Brownie Squirts card was born.
We wanted to put this game on Kickstarter for two reasons: First, it’s the fastest way to get into your hands. Second, we wanted you as a community to be a part of our amazing journey. We want you to love Brownie Points Card Game as much as we do. So, if a world full of brownie squirts and slap attacks is a world you want to live in, please back this project and help us build this game.
With love and brownie squirts,
- Jammy and Offspring
I want to thank Steve Gordon from CEOmanship for having me on his show. Check it out!
Risks and challenges
Production of the game is pretty straight forward: it’s just a card game, but the building of the box can be a little tricky otherwise it’s relatively straightforward process to make. The biggest challenge for us is if you blow us out of the water making sure everyone who pledges gets their Brownie Points Card Game quickly after the campaign ends. None of us want to see this campaign full of production emails and delays. If you back this project, we want to be sure you can start brownie squirting and slap attacking your family and friends as soon as possible. Therefore (for now) we’re not offering t-shirts or stuffed brownies or other complicated reward tiers that would make the distribution process take longer. We’re keeping it as simple as possible: support our project and in return we’ll send you the playable game.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
