About

Monkeys On Your Back is a card game in which you have to defeat Addicted Monkeys who will try to make you fall into temptation, taking you down on a wrong path and ruining your healthy lifestyle.

This game is super fun. It requires 5 min to learn and a gameplay is about 5 to 20 min. There is a Kid friendly edition and a NSFW for the grown ups. It was created by: Giovanni Maria Ciclosi (Joe) and Nicolas Balbo (Nick). Joe is a business management student at the Pegaso University located in Rome, Italy. Nick is an industrial design student at the College for Creative Studies located in Detroit, U.S.

We are two Italian guys, friends since forever and really into monkeys! We mashed twerking baboons, horny orangutans, Harambe, dub and grumpy monkeys, all in this one addicted cards game. We believe that you will have a lot of fun battling against the addictions and also against your dearest friends! Our friends never let us win a game since we are the creators... but we know they love us! Call your friends and have fun!

After almost a year of hard work, effort and fun, we assembled this Kickstarter campaign because we can’t bring this idea into reality without your help. Please back our project because we think that you are going to love it!

With much addicted love, monkey hugs and banana kisses,

Joe and Nick.

STRETCH GOALS

In order to create a better game for you, we wanted to have a different drawing for each action card in both versions. To make this happen, we need your help! We need a lot of new great ideas and we believe that the Kickstarter community is great for this purpose. Therefore, if you have any fun idea for a drawing, leave a comment below or write us at monkeysonyourback@gmail.com. You will have the opportunity to take part of the creation of the game and to add something amazing to it!

SHIPPING

Regarding the shippings we are working with the amazing team of Ship Naked team to handle the fulfilment part of the project. We are using the Customs-Friendly Worldwide™service of Ship Naked, that will guarantee that you will not have to pay anything additional, if you live in: US, EU, UK, Canada, Australia or New Zealand.

We will ship internationally, excluded only a few countries. We are working to include as many countries as possible around the globe. If your country is not included in our shipping list, send us an email at monkeysonyourback@gmail.com and we will work hard to try to include it. The estimated shipping is between January and February 2020.


THE HISTORY OF MONKEYS ON YOUR BACK

Once upon a time… Joe had a crazy idea about a game involving monkeys, so he called Nick and they instantly started to work on it. The first results weren’t good at all. Creating a fun and bug-less card game is no easy task! At the beginning, the game was called "Pass the Monkey". To try this game out, we wrote the card names onto some colored cardboard.

                                                                                      First Prototype

At the beginning, the game didn't look professional at all. We were only having fun while trying to create something new. But month after month, the game was becoming cooler and cooler and we always involved more friends try it. Although, nobody was excited to play with colored cardboard, we decided to invest some time in a new prototype. We prepared a quick graphic, printed them out and coated them with a protective plastic layer. The second prototype was born. 

                                                                                 Second Prototype

When we realized that we created something cool, we wanted to bring this project to life. After a ton of work, we finally created functional and super fun definitive version. The result was beyond everything we could expect at the beginning!

                                                                              Finally, the last concept!

Risks and challenges

If you back our project, we want to ensure you that you have our game as quick as possible. To achieve this, we have been working hard for months to organize everything.Together with the amazing teams of AdMagic for manufacturing and Ship Naked for fulfillment, we'll send them all around the world avoiding any trouble or extra shipping cost.

The AdMagic folks helped us a lot to understand how the manufacturing of a card game works. From preparing the files to production and cargo shipping times, they advised us to work with Ship Naked for fulfillment. They collaborated with Ship Naked several times in the past and they know each other very well. The Ship Naked guys informed us of shipping process, the times and risks that could implicate in some countries. For this reason, unfortunately, we had to exclude some countries in which we will not be able to ship. However, thanks to the Customs-Friendly Worldwide™ service of Ship Naked, you will not have to pay anything additional, if you live in: US, EU, UK, Canada, Australia or New Zealand.

We want to minimize all risks to deliver the game to you between January and February 2020. This is also the reason why we don’t offer complicated rewards and gadgets. We want to maintain the manufacturing process quick and efficient. Cards and instructions, all in a fancy packaging. Back our project and you will quickly receive our game. Thank you very much!
