Thank you all so much! As an added bonus for getting us to the starting line so fast we are adding stickers to everyone's orders. We are very prepared and practically salivating at the chance to take this game to the next level. We only set the bar at the lowest amount feasible for getting at least a few of you this awesome game.
"Birds and Squirrels" is just like watching birds on a powerline but, much more exciting and fast paced. Up to 6 people take turns flipping cards over onto power lines. Here is the rule card.
I generally play to 30 but you can play up to whatever score you want. Each deck will come with one of five white raven card designs. The white raven can be used as just a normal bird, as a score doubler, or as a requirement to win the game. It's for you to decide because it is wild!
Pretty simple right?
Well, we will see how simple you think it is when you are flipping cards at 90 miles an hour with a five year old looking you dead in the eye...
*All cards in the deck are different and there are no repeats. I put a lot of work into the design and used different species of black birds from all over the world. Every expansion after this will also feature new birds in different settings sometimes with new foes! So, we bring you to the first such prize...
"Birds & Squirrels: Big City" edition! For even more awesome birds and squirrels action. Big City Edition trades squirrels for rats, black birds for pigeons, hawks for car horns, and white ravens for that one white dove that is always hanging out with the other birds.
Any money given without a reward level will go towards games for kids in need. We don't want handouts but, we know some kids who need them.
*Safe for all ages under supervision. But, we say 4 to 400!
**This is a relaunch of this project. The first time we couldn't really provide a good example of the game in play. Now we have a nice prototype of the deck and toiled away a few days on a more illustrative video. We also dropped our funding goal and tweaked some prices after firm calculations were made and our previous game "No Masters!" another Kickstarted creation was fully shipped (on time!) and out of the way. We mean business. This game will be created. The question is "Do you want to be one of the awesome people that poured gas in the tank that turned this contraption on?"
While you think about it, here are some of our fancy birds!
If we make it to $5,000 we will add 15 extra cards to each original black bird deck. If we make it to $7,500 we will add an extra surprise mini game to each order.
*All backers at or above the 25 dollar mark will receive the beta version of the game app free for play testing when it becomes available in a few months.
Risks and challenges
We plan on having this game in the mail and on it's way to you roughly five weeks after the campaign ends (just like our last game.). This is our second successful Kickstarter game. We know our printers and we have all the means to get you our totally rad stuff. Thanks for checking us out!
