Frequently Asked Questions
Print & play games are games you manufacture at home using a printer and scissors. You download a pdf of the game, print it out, and cut the cards out. There is a print & play version of Crazier Eights and everyone who makes a pledge will have access to the print & play version. It will have somewhat lower resolution, but it will still have a good level of quality. You can print the cards on card stock, or you can print them out on regular paper and paste them on other cards.Last updated:
Advanced Crazier Eights is one of the versions of Crazier Eights that I have been working on. Advanced Crazier Eights is very similar to the regular version of the game, and has some of the same cards as the regular version. However, the regular version of the game has thirteen different cards in four different colors. Advanced Crazier Eights has fifty two unique cards, and it has a somewhat higher difficulty level because there is a greater variety of card effects. Some of the card effects add new elements to the game. Players who thirst for variety and complexity will likely prefer the advanced version of the game.
There is a stretch goal that will make the print and play version of the Advanced Crazier Eights prototype available for every reward level in addition to options of getting a high quality prototype of Advanced Crazier Eights.Last updated:
I want to help support brick and mortar stores, and I would like Crazier Eights to be sold in stores. For this reason the Retailer reward level will be only offered to brick and mortar stores. To use that option you need to be able to prove you have a brick and mortar store. Verification requires you to provide the store name, store address, phone number, and a photo of the store. The address used for pledge must also be the store's address. If I determine you are not a retailer and you choose this option, you will get whatever reward non-stores get at a similar reward level.Last updated:
First, note that the current look for the game is somewhat different from the older look I was considering using.
Second, note that I am honored that people think that the older look for Crazier Eights cards looked like they were made using a high quality Magic: the Gathering card frame/layout, but it is actually my design. It was not developed by Wizards of the Coast. There are some significant differences between that card frame and any used for Magic: the Gathering.
I have talked to a friend who is a lawyer about this and other legal issues, and will continue to research any legal issues that arise.Last updated:
The art was made by a variety of artists and all of it is in the public domain. You can probably find all the art at Wikimedia Commons.
However, I have edited some of the art in significant ways and I own the copyright of the art when that happens.
Some people claim to own the copyright of faithful reproductions of art that would otherwise be in the public domain. In the USA, that is considered to be copyfraud.

One reward level includes a custom card. The card will use art that you have made or photographed, or art that you find that I can confirm to be in the public domain. The card must not violate intellectual property laws and it must be appropriate for children. This is a limited offer -- only twenty people can get this reward and it will be no longer available after 2 July 2014.
These cards will likely have a symbol on the bottom right-hand side to differentiate them from the regular cards.
You have the following choices for the card coloring: You can make a multicolored card (with two, three, or four colors) or you can have a card that has one color (in all four colors with a rank and suit like the normal cards).
You could use this option to change one of the cards that are already used for the game: You can change the name, image, and/or text of a card that is already included.
It is likely that these rewards will be given out separately from the other rewards. You could end up getting the regular version of the game in the mail before getting the custom card.
Also note that this reward level automatically gives me permission to use the card or some element of the card for Crazier Eights (as a promo, as a card in an expansion, etc.) It is also possible that I have already thought of similar cards for expansions or promo cards.
You can contact me before or after choosing this reward level to tell me what you would want the card to be: http://craziereights.com/contact/Last updated:
If you get a physical copy of Crazier Eights and you don't like the game, you can return it to me within a month for a full refund. Just contact me to find out the address. I will also pay up to $4 for shipping the item back to me after I get it back.

The Second Edition is a deck with different cards than the regular version of the game. It uses the same rules system as the regular version and does not really have a higher difficulty level.
There is a stretch goal that will make the print and play version of the Second Edition prototype available to those in every reward level.Last updated:
Every reward level has access to a print & play version of the Crazier Eights prototype. I gave information for accessing the PDF file in the first update: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/recoculous/crazier-eights-a-fantasy-card-game/posts/866874Last updated:
