We're Funded!

Thank you so much for your support! The campaign funded in just 40 minutes which is insane. 

A couple of awesome things are going to happen:

1) I immediately hired the illustrator, Matt Franklin, to start work on the 2nd half of the illustrations

This should speed up production and hopefully get Fry Thief to you a few weeks earlier than expected.

It also means I can share some fun work in progress sketches with you as the campaign goes on.

2) We can announce some stretch goals

If you've never heard of stretch goals before - they're extra things a campaign can add since I can order more units from the manufacturer. We raised enough money to pay for the minimum print run and now I can invest a bit more money in new art & getting a few new cards.

2a) $3,500 - New Card - I Know What You're Planning. 

The first stretch goal will be unlocked at $3,500 and it's called I Know What You're Planning

Name a card. If your opponent has that card in their hand you may take and immediately play that card.

I actually had I Know What You're Planning in the 1st prototype and it's arguably my favorite card. I eventually took it out of the game because it isn't a lot of fun for new players. So once you've played the game a few times add this card in. If you can count cards you'll have a fun time guessing what you opponent has and be able to take it and play it.

This is a red card so it can be played by any player.

2b) $3,750 - New Art 

The second stretch goal makes the game prettier. I love the variable player powers on the backside of the plate cards. Right now they reuse some of the art from the cards. With enough funding I can commission new artwork to make the game even more visually appealing.

Besides don't you want to know how the illustrator will draw "Health Nut" and "Hand Slapper"? I know I do.

2c) $4,000 - 3-4 Player Mode

The third stretch goal lets you enjoy stealing fries with more players. I've heard a ton of requests to make this game work with more players. If we can get to $4,000 I'll add in a 3-4 player mode for the game.

The game will still be designed to work primarily as a 2 player game but we'll give you a bit of flexibility to play with 3 or 4 people when the need arises.

Note: To get the most out of this mode you'll need extra tokens and cards. I will explain this more as we get closer to hitting this  goal.

3) Livestream Today

There will be a livestream in less than 2 hours 🕒. If you want to see how the game is played tune in.

You'll also see me eat some of those fries I promised. OM NOM NOM.

What You Can Do

If you can help spread the word (and many of you already have - thank you!) we can get a few more backers and hit these stretch goals. 🤞

Or you can upgrade your own pledge and share Fry Thief with a few extra people.

Thank you for joining me so far. 🙏 I can't wait to share more work in progress shots 🖼! 


PS. There's still 2 slots left for the Add Your Likeness Pledge.
