About this project
Mana War is an original card game created with the spirit of simplicity, inclusion, and creativity in mind. There are 50 cards in the game (5 suits: Sun, Water, Fire, Rock, and Leaf; 10 of each). There are no numbers or values to the cards, no text to read or instructions to follow on the cards themselves. In fact, the games are so simple, the rules for the 4 included games each fit on a single card.
Many table-top games are simply just not accessible to most people, be it because they don't see an interest in learning complex rules and secret strategies, or they don't want to spend tons of money. Mana War aims to address this by being quite possibly the most simple and affordable game involving "mana" that there ever was! If you can play UNO, or Go Fish, you will have no problems playing any one of the Mana War games.

Add $5 to your pledge
For every $5 that backers add on top of their pledge, an additional copy of the game will be donated on your behalf to Cowabunga Recess. Cowabunga Recess is an organization dedicated to childhood growth through play. Located in downtown Baltimore, MD, they provide recess programs to inner city schools as well as community functions and even teambuilding events for corporate environments. Unfortunately, not every day is a beautiful, sunny day to go play 4-square or kickball outside, and some days recess has to be held indoors. All copies of Mana War donated to Cowabunga Recess in this way will go to the schools and programs which provide these activites to the children. Check their Facebook page for more info!
The $5 add-on pledge does not add any shipping costs, and you can add $5 as many times as you want. For example, if you pledge at the $15 level and would like to donate, at the confirmation page you can increase that number from $15 to $20 and I'll take care of the rest!

Risks and challenges
Mana War intends to be the first in a series of games I'd like to produce. The reason I chose to make Mana War first, is because it was a game I could vet and design all on my own. This helps me to understand all of the factors going into creating a good, fun game -- as well as mitigates the potential for more people to cause delays in production. I have already reviewed 4 rounds of prototypes myself, and I am confident that the product is ready to go to manufacturing once funded! I am in talks with a few manufacturers depending on the level of interest and have quotes ready to be signed off on, so I'm confident I'll be able to print and fulfill 100 copies or 100,000 copies.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
