Hatfield vs. McCoy is a card game that places the players into the family feud in a fun and comedic setting.  Each player or team is in charge of the Hatfield or McCoy family.  Players will equip their character cards to do battle against the other family.  Each round the players choose to fight it out (attacking farm animals) or build their family.  By using the special abilities of family members, equipment cards, and special action cards, you will inflict damage to the other family or their farm. The team that destroys all of their opponent's animal tokens, or family members wins the game.

We would like to come full circle and finally manufacture and print a this fun combat game!  These units will allow us to present our game at conferences and to local game stores to build buzz and a fan base for our game.  Some units will also go to YouTube and online game reviewers to test play and review the game!

By supporting our effort, you will have a copy of our game as the reviewers are giving it a go!

You will not only be on the cutting edge of a new game, but you will have a limited edition first printing!

The majority of the funding will go into the time and cost to set-up the graphic design files and to manufacture the game.  A small portion will go towards promotional items. We also have ideas for spin-off games and expansions. New family decks or other sub-culture groups could make for exciting mix & match game play!

Risks and challenges

Risks: Limited - We the game rules, art and graphic designs are in an advance state of development. We can make this happen, and we are mostly looking for manufacturing & marking support. Our goal is to get funded for full scale manufacturing with custom clay tokens and etched dice. If we hit our target, it is possible.

Challenges: Proof & Production
The real challenges is getting all of the proofs and production in place to meet the orders. We believe we can full-fill our needs to meet all of the backer rewards, but there is always unknown delay's that could push out the delivery date of the rewards. We do not foresee that happening, but it is a possibility.

We do feel safe to say that our risks and challenges are limited.

FAQ

  • No.

    The cost to manufacture 1,000 high quality versions of our game is over $10,000. The game contains over 150+ cards, 20 page game booklets, dice and 40 tokens.

    $3,750 is allocated to set up and create the graphics, dies and set-up the equipment needed for the manufacturing run. (one time cost)

    $2,500 is allocated to set-up and produce promotional items like tee shirts, stickers, posters and any additional items that can be used to market and promote the game.

    $2,500 is budgeted for trade shows & marketing. The cost of a table at a convention plus travel will use a good portion of this amount. Even an space on web site will use this in just a few months.

    $2,000-$2,500 is the combined cost for Kickstarter & Amazon for a funded project of our size.

    $3,750 Taxes

    So if you do the math of the real cost to launch a game, it adds up rather quickly.

  • No, permission is not required.

    The characters in the game are works of fiction and not based on any real people. Additionally, you can not copyright a surname nor historical family names which are fair use under copyright law.

    Do you think "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter" publishers sought out permission from living relatives of Abraham Lincoln?
