The Catholic Card Game & More Expansions
More games the Pope can play! We are printing base games as well as an expansion box with 3 (or more!) collaboration decks.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sat, September 1 2018 1:00 AM UTC +00:00.
The Catholic Card Game is back with its second coming!
We are printing more base games AND we have created an expansion pack like you've never seen before.
The expansion pack comes with THREE decks: the Catching Foxes deck, the Tomics deck, and the Pints With Aquinas deck. These three decks will all come in one awesome box housing all 165 cards.
We also have a stretch goal: If we reach it, we will create an expansion deck with Fr. Mike Schmitz! Read more below to learn how this will happen.
The base game includes the original 480 cards. You can see our original campaign here: Catholic Card Game on Kickstarter
Here are some cards in the base deck:
Here are a few of the Catching Foxes cards:

A few Pints With Aquinas cards:
*The Tomics and Pints with Aquinas cards have never been printed (hence the mockups above) This campaign is intended to change that.
$50,000 - Fr. Mike Schmitz Booster Pack!
Fr. Mike has graciously agreed to be a part of this game! If we reach this financial stretch goal, we will collaborate with Fr. Mike to create a Booster pack (25 or so cards) to be included with every order!
$53,000 - The Crunch Booster Pack!
We are partnering with the boys from The Crunch Catholic Podcast to create another Booster pack! This will be an additional 25 cards included in the expansion box.
What did we learn from last time?
From our first campaign experience, we learned a lot. Here are a few things we will do differently this time to ensure the best results for everyone:
- More proofing! A few errors made it through last time; but not again!
- Upgrade shipping time: This makes our financial goal higher, however, you can expect games to reach you about 3-4 weeks earlier.
- Estimated arrival time: This will still be tricky, but it is our goal to get the games to you on time or before the expected month listed.
Quickly on the timeline
You'll see that the estimated arrival month is in January. The main reason for this is that we do not want to guarantee that the games will reach you before Christmas and then they don't for reasons we can't control. As we all know, things get crazy for the holiday season and printing could be delayed or shipping could take longer with the increased demand.
We are planning to work quickly and try to get the games to you before the end of the year! But there is a chance that things will be delayed when it is outside of our control. So January is the estimated time, but there could be a surprise package at your door earlier!
Increase in goal and price?
Our financial goal this campaign is higher than our first campaign. The reason for this is that costs have gone up. We are anticipating demand to be high so we are calculating this cost to print double the amount of games as we did the first time. Also to compensate for increased costs, we have raised the price of the base deck by $5. This helps pay for quicker shipping from the printer to the fulfillment center.
Will you be selling the games after this campaign?
As it stands right now, no. We are campaigning to print games for everyone who orders right now. We do not have a distribution plan in place for after this ends. So if you want a game, now is an acceptable time!
If you are or know someone who would want to help us distribute games outside of Kickstarter, please reach out! We would love to talk about an opportunity like that. It is a bit out of our expertise so we would love to talk about a partnership.
Making It Happen
Printing with the awesome ninjas at PrintNinja again. They are a great team that printed our original game.
How The Money Will Be Used
Our largest expense will be for printing the two sets of games, followed by the cost to ship the games to you. We are also compensating the awesome collaborators behind the expansion packs. The rest of the money will be used to pay for marketing costs as well as the fees to host a campaign on Kickstarter.
Thanks! (be to God)
Please reach out with any and all questions. We are incredibly excited to share this game again and add a multitude of new cards into the mix.
Risks and challenges
Risks with printing: Poor quality of printing is the number 1 risk. However, with our partnership with PrintNinja, we are mitigating this risk because they are pros. And our first game came out GREAT!
Risks with shipping: the large package of hundreds of games could get delayed or lost. We are looking to estimate shipping arrival time much better this go around AND we are upgrading our shipping option to do priority rather than ground.
Risks with proofing: We could miss a few typos. We are taking extra precautions this time to ensure NO typos are printed and a professional game is created. That has always been our goal.
Other than that, it's all in the Lord's hands amirite?Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
