About

Leetzy
Leetzy

 Leetzy puts a whole new spin on word games.  It's a card game that is made up of letters, numbers, and symbols like @, #, &, $. You split up into groups of two, with a minimum of two teams. Your partner gives you seven cards to start. You flip over the cards and have two minutes to build as many words as you can, using all three types of cards. As you use the cards, your partner gives you more so you always have seven cards to build with. At the end of two minutes, in order to receive points, your partner has one chance to decipher what words you built. If they miss the word, the next team can steal the points. The point values are one point for letters, two for numbers, and three for symbols.

How Leetzy was born…. 

I was walking through the mall one evening and saw a booth selling a word game. I almost bought it but then I remembered how much I can’t stand word games, for the simple fact, I’m not the world’s greatest speller. Then it occurred to me, wouldn't it be great if there was a word game where spelling didn't matter. Thus, Eleet Games began. I had been working on several prototypes using different font styles and card sizes and was planning on calling the game Eleet (based on the fact that Leet Speak uses numbers and symbols to represent letters). During the Christmas holidays, we had a family game night at my aunt's house where my cousin Mel, from California, had came to visit. He played the game with us and immediately saw the potential of this unique game. Having had 35 years of marketing experience and being an owner of several businesses, he approached me with a business proposal to become partners and form a company called Eleet Games. Together we have developed my simple idea for a card game into a simply awesome game called Leetzy.  

We have big plans for this card game but unfortunately big plans require big money.  With your help, we will be able to professionally manufacture the quantity and quality of playing cards we need to share Leetzy with the world.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge that we foresee would be adequately marketing the product for maximum coverage and balancing logistical issues of supply and demand.
