Thumb Chess-A take anywhere & play anywhere game! w/Make 100

$532

All you need is Thumb Chess and four thumbs to play.  Both players hold the card with their thumbs on top and take turns moving thumbs, according to the rules, until someone traps their opponent's thumb with Thumbmate™!

Thumb Chess is a take-anywhere & play-anywhere game!  It was invented while waiting in the looooong admission line into a major game convention.  Thumb Chess is great for waiting in lines, riding in the car or bus, or capturing that perfect moment on a theme park ride. Thumb Chess fits in your bag, your pocket, your whatever.  You can take it anywhere, and pull it out, teach and play in just minutes.  Games last from one to five minutes so you don't even have to worry about time.  You can play Thumb Chess anywhere, anytime. 

How to Play 

Reviews

As reviews come in, we'll post them here:

"I'd really recommend this one to anyone...It's super quick and light, but I love that I could bring it any and every where...Definitely recommend if you're always gaming on the go!"

Risks and challenges

There are always risks. But this is our third campaign. Both previous ones were card games and they were both completed on time and even early. Shipping and printing are the two main areas where problems can arise. We will stay in communications the entire way through the process so you will always know how things are progressing and if there is a problem, you'll be kept in the loop as we work through it to ensure a successfully fulfilled campaign.
