I am canceling this Kickstarter campaign

Something went wrong with this campaign. I could re-launch in the future. Go here for more information. Feel free to offer suggestions.

I recommend you join the Crazier Eights newsletter for future announcements.

Introduction

Are you a gamer who likes more complicated fantasy card games, but a lot of family and friends don't want to play them? Crazier Eights is a fun fantasy card game with some elements of more complicated games, but it is easy to play. Now you can get family and friends to play a fun and easy fantasy card game. They might also be more willing to try a more complicated game after they learn some of the basics from Crazier Eights.

Crowdfunding: Your pledge can help me fund the manufacturing for the game. If I reach the goal, you will get your reward and the game will be manufactured. If the goal is not reached, you do not pay anything. I can re-launch the campaign if it does not succeed to try again.

Note: Images of the Second Edition, expansions, and promo cards are all prototypes, and the final versions could be different.

Stretch goals

Every regular copy of the Second Edition given out for rewards will come with unlocked stretch goals. More funding can make it less expensive to manufacture the game, so it makes it possible to get greater rewards.

$6,000 -- Eternity Expansion (locked). There will be an expansion pack containing around 15 cards. Every regular copy of the Second Edition given out as a Kickstarter reward will come with the Eternity for free if this stretch goal is unlocked. The expansion can be shuffled into the Second Edition. I am testing out ideas for Eternity and another expansion set.

Add-ons

Increase your pledge by the specified amounts to get more rewards.

  • Egyptian Expansion (Valley of the Nile): $9
  • +1 Copy of the Second Edition: $18
  • +1 Copy of the First Edition: $21

Instructions:

  • Click on 'manage your pledge.'
  • Increase your pledge by the specified amount.
  • At the end of the campaign, you will fill out a survey and clarify which add-on(s) you paid for.

More information about the functionality of add-ons can be found here.

Promotional Card

The promotional card will be included with each copy of the Second Edition for the Kickstarter rewards and perhaps more than that, but it is not officially part of the Second Edition. The image below is a prototype and the final version could be different.

The Jumbo deck is a Kickstarter exclusive. How big are the cards in the Jumbo deck? Here's a comparison.

Funding

I need funding for the Second Edition to have it manufactured. I have a quote from AdMagic. $3,000 is enough for them to manufacture 500 copies of the game. I will also use funds for shipping rewards & fulfillment if possible, but I am willing to spend some of my own money for that.

Shipping

I am charging shipping based on an estimate, and I am paying $3 out of pocket for shipping. That is why people in the USA don't pay for shipping. I tried to make sure to pay $3 out of pocket for international shipping as well. It can cost $16 to ship many places outside the USA, so I am charging $13.

About Me & Crazier Eights

I have designed games as a hobby since I was five or so. I have been working on Crazier Eights for over 10 years, and multiple versions of the game were never published. The First Edition was successful on Kickstarter. It is available at various stores, and everyone got their rewards.

Crazier Eights was developed in part as an excuse to have a simple game with lots of interesting card effects. It can have a limitless number card effects and you can see that for yourself when you play the game. More information about the history of the game's development can be found here.

Risks and challenges

I have some experience having games manufactured (such as the First Edition), but you have to rely on third parties. I can't control how reliable the manufacturer will be. If I use a third party for fulfillment, I can't guarantee they will be totally reliable either. I will try to use companies that have a record of being reliable, though.

If you do not get the reward, then you will get a replacement reward or refund.

The $3,000 goes does not account for every cost of fulfilling rewards using AdMagic as a manufacturer, but I am willing to spend some of my own money if necessary to make sure the goals are fulfilled.

If I face unexpected financial difficulties, then I can have enough copies of the game printed for rewards using the Game Crafter if necessary.
