CONQER TREMBLEX: The New Dexterity Party Game!

Having assisted in bringing Toc Toc Woodman and Gemblo, both international HITS to the US Market, I found myself drooling over the "3 dimensional, tower shaped, Tetromino game called, 'Shake Shake Tower'," which SOLD OUT at GENCON in 2009.

Since then, I collected information about what changes could be applied to this game to appeal to many types of audiences. After purchasing the rights to this game, we worked on changing many parts:

  • TWEAK COLORS
  • REDESIGN PACKAGING
  • A NEW NAME

and incorporate a competitive edge with many different game rules. I wanted to make a big TREMBLING EFFECT HERE IN USA with an excellent process of rebuilding the old "Shake Shake Tower" into the New Dexterity Party Game: TREMBLEX!

I am honored to present it here on Kickstarter, hoping your response would be your participation or a good old smack-down without reaching the goal, either way, I am glad that You are the very first to see this project. Thank you so much for browsing through!

COLOR TESTS WITH SAMPLE MANUFACTURING

Our hearts were set on changing colors to be fun so, we decided to create some test phases to compare results from different color samples with test production.

After choosing our new colors, we tested compatibility of colors to material for the See-Saw Boards.

DESIGN

The design team consisted of Daniel Lee, Max Holiday, and advised by June Park who is a good friend and a talented Toy-Buff. These folks were inspiring throughout the phase, incorporating POP-ART theme with a fun logo and the use of a Newspaper layout to showing the original rules of the game.

Focusing on the fun of the trembling effect throughout the game was important, connecting with themes and ideas from the past, and finding the balance between Hobby, Gift and Toy Industries.

TRANSFORMATION

We believe that TREMBLEX will be a fantastic game in your hands. For us, it will be the vehicle to reach for our dream of producing fine gifts to many Kids at heart.

Risks and challenges

Located in Queens, NY, Wisemen Games is a small startup company in the Toy and Game industry. With our limited experiences and funding, we know that it isn't easy to be perfect on all parts of this project. We did take a decent first step forward in minimizing The Risks and Challenges to this project by completing our first project successfully. And this excites me evenmore as we work toward the goals set on this project.

Fulfillment: We have appointed industry's finest, "Alliance Game Distribution"

Marketing: Ads on BGG and Dicetower, SNS and updating our websites, but the word of mouth that you share is the most important part!

Production: The base game has been completed but all the stretch rewards still need to be produced as we launch this project. I will continue to oversee this with close partners in Korea who can guarantee the best outcome!

Freight: I have chosen to work with Dimerco USA, who was successful in helping out on our very first project.
