Us, Our Dreams & Goals

Solve This was designed by Justin Selgrad and Shawn Alsberge. Justin Selgrad has been a Teacher for over 7 years teaching Game Design, Programming, and Ethics. When JD, a good friend of ours, came to us with a game idea. We saw that it would be perfect for an educational game that is fun for everyone. 

JcT Designs LLC., is a brand new game company that will be focusing on educational and family fun games. We see Solve This as a great game for homes and classrooms everywhere. 

With your help here on Kickstarter, we are setting our goal for 500 copies of Solve This. 450 copies of the game will be going to our backers, and the final 50 will be used to cover any damaged product, and/or misprints. We will be sending any left over copies to school boards and day care companies so they can see how beneficial Solve This would be for the children. 

The goal of $10,000.00 will cover the cost for getting the cards, the dice, boxes, shipping, and covering the fees to Amazon and Kickstarter. Below is an approximate breakdown of how the funds will be used.

5% to Kickstarter = $500.00
5% to Amazon = $500.00
Production = $3000.00
Shipping= $6000.00
Totaling = $10,000.00

Solve This is ready for production, all pictures here are from our test run. Any modifications that we found after the test run have been made and is ready for print. Pictures for the new box style and wooden box, will be updated here soon when they are available

Please fund Solve This, so we can begin to get our game in schools and homes everywhere. 

JcT Designs LLC., has several games about ready for production after solve this. Please keep an eye out for other family fun and educational games ffrom JcT Designs LLC.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges that we will be facing are the same as anyone else here on Kickstarter, production and shipping. We have done our leg work to get the production company lined up, as well as FedEx for the shipping, to make sure that Solve This will make it to you before our December estimated date. We know everyone prefers to get things early. So, barring the production being overrun by Militant Mice or the shipment being lost in the Bermuda Triangle. Solve This should arrive to your house on or before December.
