Risks and challenges

This is my very first game. I've been working as a fiber artist for 11 years and it will always be my first love, but I've fallen hard for game design. Asking backers to put their trust in this first game will be my biggest challenge.

This edition is just the beginning. I have plans to work directly with fiber artists to create custom expansion packs and collectors cards that will work seamlessly with the base game, but before I can get there I need to get the first edition off the ground.

I'm planning on packaging this game in a box with room for extra cards to be added in the future. There are so many talented and fantastic fiber artists out there and I'm so excited to be able use this collaboration to celebrate our amazing, diverse, generous and artistic maker community.
