About

Dearest Kickstarterian,

Colours and Shapes is a little card game that has gone through a lot since its conception. It was a different brand during its original beta testing and from the feedback we received it helped us move in the right direction for the product. And ta-da you have the brand you see before you!

**Full Transparency; the funds raised from this kickstarter are to pay for the first edition high quality bulk printing of Colours and Shapes. Once money transfers hands the order is immediately placed with Quality Playing Cards to be produced and shipped to us so we can then send the backers their rewards.**

In Colours and Shapes you take on the role of one of the four colours and shapes; Red Triangle, Green Square, Blue Circle and Violet Rectangle, each has their own special power creating a unique gameplay experience. Battle your friends in this match making card game and learn your colours and shapes!

Colours and Shapes is an exciting 2-4 player game that can either be played in minutes, or for hours, requiring you to combine thoughtful strategy, luck, and in-your-face gameplay to create a funfast, and casual game that can be played anywhere, anytime. The game mechanics are simple yet elegant leaving a lot of room for playstyle growth to ensure replay value for a long time to come. Colours and Shapes makes a great game to play on family game nights, holidays, or even on "poker night".

 Gamer's Remorse Review

Check out the review of Colours and Shapes preview brand. Remember the brand is just the artistic exterior of the game the gameplay and interaction is 100% the same.

Father Geek Review

Father Geek did an excellent review on Colours and Shapes as well.

  • Child Geek "The only thing I don’t like about the game is losing." 
  • Parent Geek "I think it’s a marvelous game. Easy to learn, easy to play, but it still requires you to think about how you are playing." 
  • Father Geek "I rather like how light the game is. It’s casual game play is coated with a very thin, but potent layer of logical thinking."

Also we have availble a print and play of the game if you wish to see how it plays or you can also check out the game manual and give it a read.

Game Design and Development:

Colours and Shapes is designed to be played by your youngest and oldest relatives at the same time. We've incorporated qualities that every age group can enjoy: Quick games, and fast gameplay, mixed with exciting endings, strategy elements, complex team play, score management, and fully developed characters with powerful abilities, provide something for all generations. All this combines to create a game that is incredibly easy to learn but fun for even the experienced gamer.

When we completed the game design, it went through extensive play-testing and prototyping to ensure it is of the highest quality and professionally presented.

Manufacturing:

We have high standards. To make sure we create a game that represents those standards, all manufacturing will be done by Quality Playing Cards, Inc. using their safety certified100% clean & green printing facilities. They are very responsive and helpful, and we're very confident we made the right choice in our production team!

In addition to being earth-friendly and safe, producing with Quality Playing Cards gives us the ability to print the game on a very high quality card stock, the same stock you'd find on your best set of poker cards (300gsm black core). We want to ensure your game will be worth your investment and be enjoyable for years to come.

All beta versions are produced through the Game Crafter. If you are an indie developer I strongly suggest using these guys for rapid-prototyping and proofing of your game.

Shipping:

We will be using the USPS (United States Postal Service) for all shipping fulfillment shipping the final game in small flat rate boxes with the only exception being the Merchants Edition which will be shipped in the medium flat rate box.

Risks and challenges

Game is 100% complete. Once kickstarter is funded the money transfers hands then we use it in the production cost of the first edition bulk printing of Colours and Shapes and the rest is used in the shipping of said game from production facility to Athens, GA then we take said game and put it into flat rate USPS boxes and get shipping labels made for every order using the rest of the fund then sending them out to you lovely individuals that want to give this game a shot.

I believe that focusing too much on the risks can bog you down with what-ifs and could-of-beens. Just know that we will do everything on our end to get you the premium quality game that you ordered to your door. The only think we can't control is that of the USPS but that is why we are going with the shipping methods we chose so you can have tracking numbers for your packages.
