Thank you to all our family and friends for "Getting in the Game" with us. We're delighted to have funded on Kickstarter. Landing Mr. Right will be available on our website at www.landingmrright.com and at select retailers listed there in time for the holidays. Please email us at email@example.com with your inquiries.
Here's our Story:
From Sex in the City to He’s Just That Not Into You, the latest craze for sophisticated single women is Landing Mr. Right, the novel social board game that helps you find “The One.” Hundreds of girlfriends from Miami to New York are playing the game of self discovery and sharing their enlightening experiences. With your help on Kickstarter, Landing Mr. Right will soon be available to the more than 47 million single women in the U.S. That’s a lot of girlfriends!
We’re Alys and Victoria, two savvy, single women who’ve experienced the dating scene over the decades – from Studio 54 to Match.com. After one of the worst dates ever, Alys called Victoria the next day to share the experience. The phone call began with, “have I got a story for you!" We decided sharing our stories would help put the fun back in dating and created Landing Mr. Right to make that happen.
The game revolves around dating six types of men: Blue Blood, CEO, Regular Guy, Rock Star, Triathlete and Techno-Geek. When you choose a Date card, you are free to select whomever you’d like to date—just like in life. The guys take you on exciting dates to ten destinations around the board. But, whether your date gets you closer to or further away from Landing Mr. Right is, as they say, all in the cards. After your date, you pick a Your Story card with a question that prompts you to share dating experiences with your girlfriends. From, “who was the first boy you kissed and is he now a friend on Facebook?” to whether your last relationship was sealed with a kiss or the great kiss-off– your answers get you thinking, laughing and discovering new things about yourself, your dating choices and the best kept secrets of your closest girlfriends.
Landing Mr. Right is a journey of self discovery. You have the opportunity to date outside your comfort zone and explore relationships with different types of men. You can take chances in the board game you might not in life. And, when you share your dating stories with your girlfriends, a journey of new possibilities begins. While technically the first player to land on Mr. Right (a space on the board) is the winner, all girlfriends who play the game win as they learn more about the guys they could be dating as well as themselves.
Alys' PR expertise has helped Fortune 100 companies, celebrities and start-ups manage their reputations and build their brands. Victoria’s sales and marketing experience includes promoting iconic hotels & resorts, luxury homes & specialty foods. Together, we're developing Landing Mr. Right to boost confidence in girlfriends everywhere to “Get in the Game.”
The game is fully developed, has been tested by focus groups, played by hundreds of women from New York to Miami, evaluated by a game manufacturer, and is ready to be produced here in the U.S. The project has been self-funded to date, including copyright and trademark fees, original artwork, printing and production of prototypes and the company’s website, www.landingmrright.com. In addition, we have put more than 1,000 woman-hours into the creation of the game from research and development to strategy and execution.
Donate, please. We need your support! We’re seeking to raise $15,000 to produce the first run of 1,000 games and we can only collect the funds if we reach this goal. For each contribution, we are offering a fun reward. In fact for a pledge of $50, you can be among the first to get the Landing Mr. Right game signed by Alys & Victoria.
We’re taking a methodical approach to producing and distributing the game, starting with our website and select high-end gift shops. We anticipate Landing Mr. Right will be available to girlfriends everywhere in time for a December holiday launch supported by a public relations blitz by Alys & Victoria.
Just because Landing Mr. Right is a game for girlfriends, doesn't mean you guys can't participate. After all, it's all about you! We're offering fun donor gifts for all the girlfriends, sisters, and moms in your lives! Landing Mr. Right might be just the "Therapy in a Box" gift of the year! So, "Get in the Game" with us and make a pledge today.
Landing Mr. Right is Ready, Set, Date! We plan to go into production on the game in September for a holiday roll out. And, we’ve got lots more in store. Future endeavors include mobile apps for "Girls’ Night Out," a teen edition designed to foster confidence in young women, an inspirational book about women who've Landed Mr. Right after years of personal challenges, as well as on and off-screen projects.

Risks and challenges
As with any start-up, there are risks and the board game industry is no exception. We have been working on Landing Mr. Right for two years and have proceeded cautiously. We’ve been learning from the best in the business and feel confident we’re working with them as we launch the game. The overwhelmingly positive reaction from those who’ve played has inspired us to take our project across the finish line. We are also accomplished marketers and have a business and marketing plan for building the brand. And lastly, we have the contacts to get Landing Mr. Right into the hands of girlfriends everywhere. So, "Get in the Game" with us and donate today!
Thank you! From our first friends to roll the die with us to those who've supported us through the process. And, of course to all of you who are helping us cross the finish line.
Here's to Love, Laughter & Landing Mr. Right!
Alys & Victoria
