Pong-O is an awesome new game based on beer pong. The objective and strategy of the game has been evolving over the last two years and it is finally at a point where we are ready to share it with the world and we need the Kickstarter community to help give us a boost. The goal of our project is to raise money to pay for the retail box, box art and the instructional card. These items require bulk buys to get the cost down and we simply do not have the cash flow to cover them.
Pong-O is not only a fun game but is also great exercise for the body and mind. Did you know there is no category on Kickstarter for "sport" games. This maybe the only game project on Kickstarter that promotes activity. Please help us make it successful!
Here is how to play Pong-O
About the Pledge Rewards
All of the pledge rewards are manufactured in our small shop located in San Diego, California. Pong-O, Bag Toss and the Beer Pong tables are precision machined from quality 1/2 inch birch plywood. For US backers, the cost to ship the rewards are included in the pledge. A fee is applied for international backers and some rewards are not eligible for international shipping due to size.
Rewards 1 thru 6 are listed below. These will ship as soon as funding expires. In the case that we receive more pledges than expected, rewards will ship in the order they were received. If we meet our goal by receiving 200 pledges for Reward #4, we will have no problem fulfilling these by mid December; however, if we were to get 500 pledges for that reward, then there will be a month delay for some backers. Higher than expected demand would be a nice problem to have but will cause delays in shipping. Reward #6 will be nice for a holiday gift but note that both will ship to the same address.
It is terrifying and exciting to put so much effort into something and then letting it go to see if it will fly. That is the true beauty of Kickstarter. Regardless of the outcome, we are proud of our work. On behalf of our team at Vorticy, we would like to thank you for being part of our first Kickstarter project.

Risks and challenges
We are still designing the packaging and brochures and we have to buy these in a large quantity so it is critical to get this backing to help pay for them. The main risk is delivering the product in a timely manner especially if the demand is significantly higher than our goal. We imagine that some of these will be gifts so it will be important to get the rewards out quick. We have already begun manufacturing a few of them and everything has been going smoothly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
