One of the most valuable things we can give to anyone is the gift of life. For my Youtube preparedness channel, my primary driving mission has always been to help people by sharing knowledge and awareness. Also as a dad, I am always trying to create opportunities to pass important emergency preparedness and wilderness survival knowledge down to my boy. I do this by discussing topics with him when they naturally come up, and also by taking him camping and hiking. But whatever the approach to sharing these lessons, the best way to keep him listening and engaged is by having the experience be fun and enjoyable.
That’s why I developed the card game “Bug Out!” It’s a fun way to share ideas related to emergency preparedness and wilderness survival. Almost every card in the 108 card deck has its own unique preparedness and or survival tip, and in addition to this, the entire structure of the gameplay fosters values such as preparing for hazards, saving up for the future, balancing potential risks, and striving past obstacles. I also designed the game to be very easy to learn and to be played without a lot of intricate rules.
Essentially the play breaks down into the mindset that there are problems, and there are solutions, and while you’re managing both, your goal is to continue pushing forward towards your goal. That’s a set of lessons that are useful in an emergency AND also useful normal day-to-day life.
If you’d like to help me to create this family game experience, and get a copy for your own family as well, please consider making a pledge towards the goal needed to get this project printed.
Risks and challenges
For you, there's zero risk. If the project gets funded, you get your rewards promised, if not, then you pay nothing.
For myself as well, there are no future risks associated with this project, because the challenges have already been overcome. When the idea for this game came to me, many people told me to create a few cards, show them around to gauge interest and to finish the game ONLY if the project was funded. But, that's not me. I was so excited about the potential of this project to help people that I have already created every one of the 108 cards, the packaging, and everything is 100% ready to go when we reach our funding goal.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
