I'm the founder and CEO of Round Table Companies, a storytelling company that has worked closely with clients for over a decade, using deep and honest relationships as the foundation for stories that create an impact on the world.
We believe everyone has a story to share, and our stories—the proud ones and the not-so-proud ones—are what make us beautiful. That’s why we created Vulnerability is Sexy, a card game that helps players reveal their true selves and give each other some of life's most beautiful gifts: time, truth, and connection.
Risks and challenges
At RTC we specialize in the collaborative creative process. In fact we've packaged and sold more than 100 books and comics to date with more than 200,000 shipped. Our books are available at bookstores nationwide, at the Smithsonian and the Library of Congress, and sometimes through Hudson News Airport bookstores.
So while creating a game is new for us, packaging and distributing products in a timely fashion is old hat!
As with any collaborative project we do recognize that there are potential pitfalls. Some possible challenges are listed below:
Printing delay - though we have coordinated with multiple printing options throughout the US and overseas, there is the potential for delay due to shipping or production schedules. As we do not have a definitive number of pieces to order at this time, we can not hold a place for production with many of the suppliers. We do expect that as soon as we place our order, we will be rocking and rolling and have games in hand within 8 weeks.
Fulfillment of Products - This is likely our most challenging component since many of our rewards include multiple items (such as games and t-shirts and necklaces). Additionally, multiple printers will be used for these different products and fulfillment will be dependent on receiving all items so they can be shipped at the same time.
Fulfillment of Services - Our interactive rewards such as workshops, coaching, and walls provide a personal experience that will be coordinated with you, the backer, and our team. These items can not be date specific, but you can trust that we will work with you to ensure you are thrilled!
Expansion Packs - if expansion packs become a part of this project due to it's popularity, those cards will have to be designed and tested.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
