  !!! QUICK CHEAT SHEET ON HOW TO SKETCH FOR THE WIN !!!!

GAME SCENARIOS:

If a SHAPE card is selected from the deck, this is what it looks like:

If you pull a SHAPE card:  One teammate draws while the other teammate guesses.  The answers are listed by point value and degree of difficulty.  Only the drawer sees the answers and can sketch the answers in any order which is part of the strategy as the object is to capture as many points possible in :60.  Correctly sketch and guess all 4 answers in any order under :60 and award your team an additional 5 BONUS points!  Remember!  The drawer has to begin each sketch using the shape first!

If a NANIGAN card is selected this is what a scenario would look like for three teams playing:

If you pull a NANIGAN card:  ALL teams sketch and guess!  Each team determines who draws and who guesses.  The first team to answer correctly within :60 seconds wins 5 points and control of the deck! No winners? Pass the deck to the left and the next team draws a card from the deck.  Notice the different interpretations of how players used the shape in the context of their drawing.

If a CHALLENGE card is selected this is what a scenario would look like:

If you pull a CHALLENGE card: A team challenges another team to a "sketch off" where points can be won or lost.  This is a strategic card that can instantly change the outcome of the game!  See directions for more details.

Risks and challenges

This is my first time creating a table top game - from a concept to design to an actual product that will be manufactured and shipped! I have done a tremendous amount of research in an attempt to prepare for "challenges" while minimizing potential "risks".
I believe it is incredibly important to manage expectations especially as it pertains to the timeliness of delivery to the ShapeNanigans backers. Delays can be a potential hindrance however I have been very selective in choosing a reputable manufacturing company (AdMagic) and fulfillment center (hopefully Black Box) for ShapeNanigans. Both AdMagic and Black Box have a wealth of experience in dealing with crowdfunding projects which will lead to transparency in the process of printing, packing and shipping a quality game.

My goal is to NOT overpromise and underdeliver. My challenge is to keep you, the backers, well informed and make you proud of a game you found worthy of backing! ShapeNanigans will definitely impact the sketch and guess game genre thanks to your support!
