looking for a family challenge ? Mathtornado is quick, demanding and skillfull but leaves enough randomness to get a realy exiting gameplay. This game is different from those others on your shelf. It is a straightforward competition, from the first card played to the last card finishing the race. When did you do your last mental arethmetic ? Are you eager to compete, do you suck or can you dominate the duel?
The game designs I started with had to fulfill one important goal, beeing entertaining for me as an adult and for my kids. The use of small number arithmetics was an experiment that supprisingly complied with this goal. By using the unique way to lay down your cards and changing the possible outcome every time there is a great action element.
This is not a learning game. Showing it to a specialist for educational games on a convention I learned that a game for this purpose must support and ancourage the weak ones. Mathtornado is a competition, rewarding the smart ones. These kids want to be challenged, to compete and to win against others especially their parents.

Creating games as a game designer is great. Seeing ideas coming together, creating prototypes and finding the twist that generates a great game is so fulfilling.
This game will come with 45 playing cards, two cards with the plus und equals sign and the german and english rules printed on 3 cards. It will be packed in a tuck box.
I want to thank the two graphic artists who created this great design.
Tyler Reed created the boy and the girl for the game. As I was stuck with the project at that time he gave me a great push to continue with this game.
Later Alex Nikiforov offered his help and created the exiting title image and the final card images. This really wanted me to hold the finished game in hands. Thank you all very much for the amazing support.
Risks and challenges
This project is my first one. After studying kickstarter for 2 years now I hope to have gained an idea of what I am doing. Choosing a card game makes the financial volume acceptable and I take responsibility for this project as a buisnessman.
Mein erstes Project auf Kickstarter ist ein Kartenspiel. Der finanzielle Rahmen ist überschaubar und als Geschäftsmann stehe ich dafür ein. Ich habe mich in den letzten 2 Jahren mit den Chancen und Unwegbarkeiten des Crowdfunding auseinander gesetzt.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
