My name is Joe McNeil and I am the Operations Director at White Flag Games and Escape Rooms in Mooresville, Indiana.  Ever since I was 12, I've been making games for fun to share with friends.  I'm extremely proud to present Skulduggery! as my first Kickstarter because I made it with my son, Solomon.  

Skulduggery! is a fast-paced take-that style trick-taking game.  Players send adventurers into an unknown dragon's lair in hopes of making it out alive with the most riches. Use the human's ability to peak at the dragon card, the dwarf's ability to steal gems, the halfling's ability to swap cards, and the elf's ability to double the value of cards in play.  Each round uses a different dragon's lair, so you need to be as crafty as you can to win.  Plays in 30 to 60 minutes and up to 8 players.

The game has been extensively playtested at my shop and with several game groups I know.  It's deceptively complex and has the right mix of luck and strategy, all while leaving a small footprint on the table. 

 We commissioned Keith Lowe to do the art and graphics for the game, and he did an amazing job! You can see more of this work at (www.keithloweart.com

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter! I've gained a lot of knowledge from a lot of people in the industry, but I know there are plenty of things I still don't know. The good thing is, the art is done, the game is designed, and everything should be good to send to print once the campaign ends. Owning a board game shop and having a lot of friends and family supporting me will ensure that whatever issues arise, I will have help in doing whatever it takes to fulfill every pledge!
