About

The Game & Rules

Wrummy 3-4-5 is simple to learn, difficult to master, and a blast to play for 2-8 players!  Draw a card, play words, discard a card.  Whoever plays a 3-letter word, a 4-letter word, and a 5-letter word before discarding their last card ends the game.  Then add up the points to see who wins!  Just like classic rummy, but with words!

4+ Games in one!

Our Wrummy 3-4-5 letter deck also works with a host of other games, including:

 Rahdo Runs Through

What You Get

Get the Wrummy 3-4-5 deck in the style of your choice!  That's 108 professionally crafted playing cards, including the rules for Wrummy 3-4-5, Wrummy Poker, Wrummy Soitaire, and Wrummy Bull$#@!.

The Designs

Pick a winner!  Only the design with the most pledges will be the one available through retailers, so while it's good to let your voice be heard about your favorite deck style, it's even better to get the specific design you like best.  Even if it isn't the one chosen for retailers, you'll still get it.  Think of it as sort of a collectible deck that won't be available anywhere else after the Kickstarter.

Why KickStarter and Funding

We decided to launch Wrummy 3-4-5 on Kickstarter because we need your help.  But it's also the fastest way to get the game into your hands!  Most of the proceeds from funding will go toward the actual creation of the cards and shipping of course, but it will also help us to promote the game to help it reach the global market.

With your help we will attend trade shows to network with distributors and other game makers in the hopes of finding Wrummy 3-4-5 a place on the shelves of major retailers like Walmart, Target and Toys "R" Us, right next to classics like Uno and Monopoly Deal.  We also want to print approximately 50 decks to send out to reviewers and play testers, just  to make sure the rules are as fun and playable as possible.

Stretch Goals

With enough support we will also be able to complete professional packaging for the cards before going to retail.  If we reach our first stretch goal of $20,000, every deck we send out will be packaged in our own custom boxes, just like you would get with your other favorite games.  Each box will be designed to match the style of cards you choose.

Extra funding will help to reduce our costs of printing the cards.  Printing companies offers a steep discount for higher volumes of orders.  This means, the more pledges we get, the more decks we can print and the cheaper each deck will become.  So to pass the savings on to you in a sense, if we reach our second stretch goal of $30,000, we will be able to upgrade the material used in the production of all decks sent out to a "linen" card stock.  This material comes with tiny air pockets in them, making them more durable, better to handle, and smoother.  We've played on them, and the feel is definitely superior!

Our third stretch goal is a lofty but important one.  We would love to bring Wrummy 3-4-5 to the mobile market in a very similar play style as games like Words With Friends, and a goal of $50,000 is needed to get us there.  Having experience in publishing mobile games gives us a head start, but we need a few things to make it a reality.  Firstly, we need to upgrade our development software.  We utilize Unity 3d, which is well renowned in the digital gaming industry and has been used in many of the world's leading games, including the likes of Hearthstone and Temple Run 2. This cost alone runs as high as $2500 per seat, which includes all the necessary add-ons that allow us to publish to both Apple and Android markets.

Aside from the software costs to get Wrummy 3-4-5 on mobile platforms, we also need an infrastructure for the multiplayer components.  This includes the necessary servers and testing tools.  We have developed several games in Unity but we've only dabbled in the multiplayer space, so to master this would be no small task.  With your help we hope to speed up the process immensely.  A game of this scope could be available on the mobile app stores in as little as 4-6 months.

Our fourth stretch goal is a bonus of sorts.  Certain card stocks are only available at a minimum order quantity of 1000 units.  So to get to the highest quality card stock available, we are adding in a fourth stretch goal.  If we achieve this goal, each deck we send out will be printed on the highest quality material available -- "linen air" card stock -- providing a better feel and smoothness while handling than even the "linen" has to offer.  Because of the sheer volume of orders we would have to place (per design), this is our highest stretch goal at $90,000.  Keep in mind, the retail version of the game will likely not be available in this higher-quality material, so get it now while you can!

Deck Delivery

If funded, production and delivery of your deck should take anywhere from a couple weeks to a month, depending on your location around the world.  Shipping is included in the pledge cost for US pledges.  An additional shipping fee will be required for international shipping.

Risks and challenges

Risks for Wrummy 3-4-5 are limited. The greatest challenge we face is getting the support needed to share this new game with the world. Please help by sharing this KickStarter with everyone you think would enjoy Wrummy 3-4-5. Click on "Share this Project" underneath the video up top. Thanks!
