About this project
Push It is a tense game of skill that can be played anywhere. To win, push, flick or judo-chop your pucks so they are closest to the central jack at the end of the round. Sound simple? Well, it is! Find any smooth surface (tables are ideal, and luckily most people have them), whip out your Push It bag, and play with whoever is up to the challenge. The game is quick to learn but hard to master. Come up against a Push It maestro and you’ll soon be put in your place (Warning: friendships can suffer as direct result of Push It). Play Push It either mano-a-mano, 3 player, 4 player or our favourite and most strategic version is two teams of two.
At Push It we want you to unleash your creativity, so there are no long-winded rules or measuring; players have to argue amongst themselves to agree whose puck is closest, or else a ‘Push Off’ tie-break round decides. Only you can tell if that was really ‘cheek lifting’ and not ‘bum shuffling’. It’s all about having your own house rules, playing on different surfaces like car bonnets or pizza trays (tried and tested) and WINNING. So when the pressure is on and you’re going for that extra point (without knocking your opponent’s puck closer), try to remember – it’s just for fun!
Now this is where you come in. To get a full run of Push It made we need your help. If you like quick, tactical, competitive games with a bit of cheek (literally), please help us make this game a reality. We think you'll love it as much as we do.
Special thanks to our friends and family who have helped us get this far: Sarah, Ede, Hannah, Jimbo, Paddy, Stef & Poppy.
Push It How It Works
We came up with Push It in our garden shed (the volume goes up when you’re playing Push It, the granny downstairs didn’t like it). The game became so popular with our friends that one day we made the first proper wooden set as a Christmas present.
We kept playing and refining the rules, and people kept requesting more and more sets. Eventually Push It had spread far and wide, including a bar in the south of France and as far away as Seattle. So we decided to try to share Push It with the masses. Zillions of prototypes, splinters and hard work later, here we are, with a full game ready for our first proper manufacturing run.
Now all we need is for you to back our little game so we can reduce the splinter count and share Push It with the world!
Thanks again from the Push It team: Leeson, Sarah, Ede, Hannah & Jimbo (and Pigeon the chicken)

Risks and challenges
Push It is a simple game, but is hard to produce to our high standards. The biggest challenge for us is the pucks themselves. We had a long search for a good manufacturer and have had to go all the way to the US to find one. They have a quite large minimum order to manufacture our pieces, which means a lot of investment. Hence we need your help.
Our bags will be sourced from a British company based in Wales, and boxes from a small British company near Portsmouth, who will be screen printing each individual box by hand. We believe we are as set up as we can be, so once the campaign ends everyone will get their Push It sets as quickly as possible.
This is why we're not offering complicated reward tiers that would make the distribution process take a lot longer. We're keeping it as simple as possible: support our project and in return we'll send you the game.
In an effort to not clog up your inbox, we will keep everyone updated with some choice emails, but mostly you can follow our progress via Facebook and Twitter. Our aim it to have the games manufactured, packaged, and ready to ship to our wonderful backers by November at the latest - in time for Christmas. We have a strong team to work through any problems and we aim to get you judo chopping those pucks as soon as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
