The Stocking Stuffer Collection is a set of three hobby-themed microgames for people who enjoy games, movies, crafting, or sports. In the trademark style of New Experience Workshop, each game is simple to learn for friends and family while still offering rewarding strategy and depth for experienced players

SEWING CIRCLE

  • Simple, Abstract, Tactics, Solo Mode, Cooperative Mode 

Unspool your ribbon and keep it from getting tangled. If someone's ribbon gets tangled, they'll be out of the running! 

In Sewing Circle, players take turns revealing cards in the circle and choosing whether to swap them with the cards next to them or in their hand. The goal is to keep your thread from becoming tangled- if your ribbon is tangled at the end of your turn, you lose!

This game is a real tug-of-war, and only by making moves that save yourself and put tension on your opponents will you win. Sewing Circle also includes a solo and co-op mode!

  •  Recommended for fans of: Palette Swap, Patchwork, Zertz, Mancala

OSCAR BAIT 

  • Simultaneous Play, Drafting, Tactics, Strategy, Take That, Highly Replayable

You are a star actor looking to earn the accolades you so richly deserve. Prove your talent by earning top roles and taking down your rivals to keep them from outshining you. You'll have to find the right balance between taking auditions and talking down your competition if you want to take home the prize! 

Playing Oscar Bait takes place in two distinct phases- Audition and Sabotage. In the audition phase each player drafts a choice role or scathing gossip from their hand and passes the rest along. Roles a player places into their schedule are worth points at the end, but are at risk of being lost or stolen based on the Sabotage cards played. Determine the right track for success and you'll end up with the best schedule in the end, but judge poorly and you may end up a bit player in someone else's story!

POCKET PITCH & PUTT 

  •  Simultaneous Play, Movement Programming, Simulation, Strategy, Drafting

Gauge your shots and read the green to outplay your fellow golfers!

Pocket Pitch & Putt is a tiny golf simulator above the rest. Power and Control have to be managed to keep your shots out of the rough and away from the dreaded sand trap. By anticipating your opponent's condition cards, playing your own, and reading the wind you'll stay on the fairway and make it in under par! Pocket Pitch & Putt includes 6 colorful ball tokens and 18 unique holes. The 'Front 9' for casual golfers and the more advanced 'back 9' for seasoned veterans.

  • Recommended for fans of:  Golf (Card Game), Golf (Sport),

The Stocking Stuffer Collection isn't just about bringing you three great little games for your holiday occasions. Each pledge includes the following with your games:

Your Copies of the Games of Your Choice

We recommend the whole collection! Each game offers a unique and engaging system well worth experiencing. However, we understand you may want just copies of Oscar Bait as gifts for your Film Appreciation Society. Each pledge can be customized for you to receive exactly the quantity of each game you desire.

Shipping to Any Number of US Addresses

Save the hassle and back-and-forth and let us send the games for you! Each will be packaged in an attractive holiday card with a blank interior included with your pledge.

Personalized Message for the Recipient

Each card will contain a personalized message from us to you, or from you to your recipient, written by hand.

There for the Holidays

Each game is guaranteed to be delivered within the US by December 25th. Should any game not make it we will make it right with an additional copy or a full refund.

Chris Amburn is the lead designer of New Experience Workshop. He designed each title in The Stocking Stuffer collection with the goal of creating accessible, satisfying games that could be enjoyed by more than just one or two players. 

Andie Gallo is the artist for Sewing Circle. Her patterns, textures, and colors give the game its warm, soft appearance.

Gloria Félix is the artist for Oscar Bait. Her speed-painting style has created a fantastic homage for the films that inspired us.

Risks and challenges

New Experience Workshop is a name that can be trusted when it comes to fulfilling a card game Kickstarter, as our previous successes show. I am proud of the reputation we have earned for delivering on our promises on time or early and treating each backer with the highest degree of customer service.

Due to the tight timeline, rewards may become limited or closed during the campaign if demand looks as if it may exceed our capacity to supply. We are committed to making this campaign a resounding success for all backers and we will not sacrifice that commitment for potential gain.
