The Tipsy Toes Story

If you are anything like me you LOVE creativity. This world is filled with opportunity and with opportunity comes creativity. Putting together Tipsy Toes has been a blessing. The struggles of manufacturing, shipping over seas and the learning curves made this experience worth more to me than any paid education I have received.

My name is Austin Burke and I am currently a full-time Marketing Coordinator for a big corporation. Working on Tipsy Toes and watching the joy and excitement I see when people play MY game is priceless

Tipsy Toes underwent a trial period from October to February (5 months) featured on Amazon. It sold over 300+ units exclusively on Amazon! Since then, the ultimate drinking game has been taking off Amazon completely. After receiving a lot of much needed feedback, I was able to make the right adjustments and finally deliver a version of Tipsy Toes that I felt was finally complete

Always fun to see where it all started and see how much progress has been made. The goal was to spend almost $0 to get a prototype going so that is what I did. I think I spent about $7 in total to actually sit down and play a full game of Tipsy Toes. I used note cards, regular printer paper for the rules (duh right), crafted the board myself, used old monopoly pieces as the game pawns and a regular deck of cards for the Kings Cup spaces. In the image below you will notice I colored the die the colors of the game board spaces. My original idea was to move by color instead of a number on a dice but found out the game is very predictable and repetitive. Playing on this prototype I discovered another flaw, the length of the board game spaces (time of playing). WAY TOO LONG. My friends were absolutely hammered!  I would have never made such a sleek design without my best friends help. Thank you, Logan Fidler.

Ultimately my goal, as mentioned in my interview below, is to get Tipsy Toes funded like "NEVER FUNDED BEFORE!" I want this game to be everyone's home. This game is not just a 'gamenight' game but a pre-game, literally, before going out. So if you have 30 mins or so before the "Uber gets here," sit down and have some drinks while playing the best drinking game, Tipsy Toes.

We'll be honest, social goals are our way to reach more people. Supporting us on Kickstarter is more than enough and we're forever grateful, but every share, follow or like on a post increases our reach to other people. We love to give shout outs so we will be on the look out for those showing off themselves playing Tipsy Toes. When possible, use the #TipsyToesDrinkingGame.  You'll need something to pop open those beers, let me finish, in style!

All shipping fees will be collected only if the campaign is successfully funded using the pledge management tool "CrowdOx" after the campaign ends. “CrowdOx” is an awesome third-party platform that helps process all your pledges much more efficiently and effectively. Basically, you will confirm your shipping and email addresses are correct through their system to receive your rewards, and then find the final shipping costs on the “CrowdOx” platform after the campaign has ended. 

We use “CrowdOx” and collect shipping after the campaign mainly for 2 reasons: 

  1. The shipping aspect of a Kickstarter campaign can be very challenging. By using "CrowdOx" we can utilize their platform and make the transition from manufacturing the products to getting them to your doorstep much more smoothly.
  2. Avoid overcharging shipping fees during the campaign - By collecting the shipping fees when the campaign is over, we will know how many units of the game has to manufactured, and where they need to be sent. Knowing that will allow us to calculate and collect the actual shipping cost, rather then potentially charging higher fees during the campaign.

ESTIMATED SHIPPING RATES:

· USA - $10-$15.

· UK - $12.

· Germany - $13.

· Netherlands - $18. 

· Denmark - $20.  

· REST OF EUROPE - $20.

· AUSTRALIA - 20$.

· CANADA: - $25.

· Rest of the World: - $30 to most non of the above countries.

Expected Delivery Date:

The estimated delivery date is between July & August 2019. We already have a manufacturer and they have games before and no the drill. They estimate 20-30 days production time plus we plan for at least 20-25 days for shipping the units overseas. As soon as all the pledges have been made and the campaign is over & completely funded then manufacturing will begin.  Our goal is to get Tipsy Toes in your households as soon as possible!

Risks and challenges

Hello Backers!

If you’re reading this section you’re already considering supporting Tipsy Toes and you should know we’re doing everything we can to bring you a high standard product and we’re fully devoted to the task.
Before we even thought about going to Kickstarter we already finished all the gameplay planning and the design of the final product.

We’re experienced with manufacturers and shipping agents, and the production of this game is already agreed upon with manufacturers including all stretch goals and rewards. This is our first Kickstarter campaign and we may encounter obstacles we didn’t encountered yet, zero risks doesn’t exist, but we’re doing our best to minimize them. As mentioned before, we have already worked with the manufacturers and will be working with a very fast turnaround.

Disclaimer:
Tipsy Toes is a social game and is intended for those who are 21 years of age and older. We do not recommend the misuse of alcohol and do not anyone drinking and driving. Always drink responsible and make good, smart decisions. With that said, we hope you all enjoy Tipsy Toes "A game for your Pre-game!"
