About

After reaching our funding goal, the game will go into production and is expected to ship out to backers in late-Fall, 2017.

Our company has been producing a wide range of high-quality board games since 2006. Check out the Wattsalpoag site, or our Facebook page to get a better idea of our commitment to excellent game design, artwork, and quality components.

We're producing Echidna Shuffle with the help of KickStarter in order to offer high-quality, custom components at a rock-bottom price - making this awesome game and any unlocked Stretch Goals yours for the modest pledge of only $32!

 Show your support for this KickStarter with our Echidna Shuffle avatar!

 

Our reason for this KickStarter - our fifth now - is a simple one: to bring you the best possible game, with the best possible pieces, at the lowest price we can manage.

Wattsalpoag Games prides itself on producing games with high-quality components, but those components come with an equally high price. The costs associated with creating molds for custom components is significant. So, we've come here to ask for your help in making Echidna Shuffle.

Our own game designer, Kris Gould was the one who suggested trying our hand at KickStarter, back in October of 2013. That experience was such a good one that we've come back to KickStarter yet again. With the help of you backers, we will not only be able to publish some of our more complex and expensive games, but we'll be able to bring you more games per year. In the end, your support is the deciding factor.

Thanks to all of you - your help and support mean everything to us!

Risks and challenges

Timing seems to be one of the biggest obstacles in many campaigns, especially from small publishers like ourselves.

Fortunately, we have experience in game design and manufacturing. We have a shipping/fulfillment company already signed on and we are passionate about games, especially this one, so we are doing everything in our power to get Echidna Shuffle completed on time and sent out to you. We care about our backers, you mean a lot to us, and we really want to see you enjoying Echidna Shuffle.
