About

Dirty Rotten Squirrels is a fun card game about a bunch of devious and sneaky nut bandits, each of whom is determined to get their greedy little paws on your nuts! 

To win, each player needs to engage a crew of cute, but devious squirrels to guard as many nuts as they can grab. 

But trust no one! These squirrels have serious character flaws - they're erratic, feisty, and easily bribed by other players, determined to tempt them with irresistible tasty treats. 

It's a simple game, but a game of extreme skill and sneakiness, and you'll soon discover cunning strategies for playing the extra-shifty cards.

So prepare to think fast and squirrelly to protect your stash, using any and all means possible!

 

About us

Hi, and thank you so much for taking the time to check out our pet project, Dirty Rotten Squirrels.  

We're Alex and Greg, a pair of animation, illustration, and margarita enthusiasts. Most days we can be found creating animation and graphics for TV networks. But after years of designing cute little dinosaurs and playful penguins for preschoolers, we've decided it's now time to turn rogue by unleashing our crew of ferocious furballs!  

If you like the sound of our project, we'd truly value your support and feedback.

And we'd be incredibly grateful if you could share a link to our page with your friends and loved ones, so together, we can bring Dirty Rotten Squirrels to life!

Our Backers

We're aiming to involve our backers over the course of the Kickstarter campaign, in development of additional squirrel characters, and any extra sneakiness you'd like to see added to the game-play, as we look to fine-tune everything to be the kind of game you can play with your kids and feisty grannies. 

Thank you

A huge thanks if you've decided to back us. We simply can't do this without your help.

We also owe an enormous thank you to the ridiculously talented & handsome Brooklynite - Eric Perlmutter from Sopheric, for providing the voice of our Mob Boss. http://www.sopheric.com/

Video music track: "Hot Lips" by Bill Brown and his Brownies (1927).

Hold onto your nuts!

Risks and challenges

There are only two types of backer rewards for now, so as to allow us to send you the Dirty Rotten Squirrels card game, and/or Wallpaper rewards as quickly as possible.

Printing and distribution options are many and varied, and we're talking to several U.S. companies used by other popular Kickstarter projects. For printing, the United States Playing Card Company are currently our preferred choice due to their excellent communication, and reasonable turn around time.

Obviously with any product of this nature, production and shipping times can vary due to circumstances outside of our control.

We have a long history of working together as a team on large scale graphic design, illustration, and animation projects, and production of this kind of artwork is something we do every day.

Warning - this product definitely contains NUTS!
