Some time ago, when my kids were still small (now they are already 22 and 14) I was thankful for the constant inspiration they were providing.
Inspiration was not always fun, since, so as to inspire me: big paintings were created on a TV screen with my nail polish, hamsters were painted white with correction fluid, and my makeup bag was investigated till the last piece.... but I could still laugh about it, and even use it in my illustrations. Looking back at those illustrations, I have decided they were perfect fit for the game of parenting - aka "Parenting 101 Tarot deck" (Big Arcana).
Those cards represent typical "parenting" situations, and help you to deal with them through the sense of humor. And trust me, what can be a better learning opportunity than playing a fun game together, while learning how to deal with mistakes made and how to recover.
Those cards are not only for parents, or those who love kids! They are perfect cards for those who refuse to grow up and believe that staying kid in your heart shows life from a better side.
Cards are packed in a beautiful black box, where they can be carefully stored. You can also choose one of the pledges to add a custom painted wooden box as well - just in case you would like it extra special. Each wooden box will be carefully hand painted for you - and no two boxes will be the same.
There are 22 cards in the box (plus one extra secret card) and as far as Kickstarter reaches new goals - I will be adding more extra cards to this deck.
Cards explanation (you receive a special QR code to assess it) will include 3 games for each Tarot/Parenting card you can play with you kid.
Each card has a illustrated back (yep, this is my daughter trying to experiment with my makeup bag captured forever in this illustration)
Cards are comfortable and small (2.5" x 3.5"), printed on beautiful 280gsm card stock paper and will fit child hand as well, which makes this game even better.
For those who missed my previous Kickstarters I have added two decks as an extra in the pledges. So if you was dreaming about owning PookieCat full Cat-rot Tarot deck or PookieCat Rune cards - you can do it now (for a special price)
PookieCat Cat-rot Tarot Cards can be played with your kids as well.
And PookieCat Rune cards are child friendly as well and also comfortably round :)
And here is me, near my working table, trying to put inspiration into illustration :)
Thank you for your support! I am truly blessed with having the best fans in the world!
Risks and challenges
I took all possible precautions to avoid foreseeable risks in completing the project.
The wonderful part is, that deck is complete, ready and tested (proof printed as well several times It makes me happy to know that little piece of orange happiness living somewhere across the globe, and making somebody's day a little better. Considering this - there are no deadlines to reach before printing this deck. I am sure this one can be as popular as previous - PookieCat Cat-rot tarot deck.
For the making of extra things, such as custom made boxes, and secret signed cards - I have enough sufficient time until the delivery date (I took it with bit of extra time but with a speed I work I see no problem of making it even before the promised date).
In case of reaching extra goals: more wonderful presents added to this campaign - I will be sure to adjust and to plan them accordingly as well.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
