What is Sheep Sleep Seep?
Sheep Sleep Seep is the first card game Wolf Beard Games is bringing to production. It is a fast paced tongue twisting party (drinking) game that can be played by any size crowd. Although it is intended to have drinking rules incorporated, it is not necessary if you are playing with a younger crowd. In essence, the game is just fun for all ages and will keep your group laughing and entertained.
Sheep Sleep Seep's concept is easy and whether you are with a group of old friends or new this game will keep everyone at the table laughing. The game is not complex. There are only a few rules, but it is quite difficult to master!
Along with the standard deck we have decided to include our first expansion pack, the "Volume Expansion" with every tier on our kickstarter campaign to add extra value (and fun) to our backers. We will also be offering two different special edition decks in limited quantities that will be Kickstarter exclusives and will never be printed and sold anywhere else!
We've added a few stretch goals that include a special card with the Wolf Beard Games Logo autographed by the owners of Wolf Beard Games and creators of Sheep Sleep Seep, Tim and Riley as well as Emma Heartquist who designed the awesome Wolf Beard Games logo. Our other stretch goals include adding in a fourth word to the game, one that our backers will have a chance to choose, and then hopefully we can reach the goal of creating a volume expansion for that fourth word. We also have one hidden stretch goal that will be revealed if the other three are met! If you order one of our special edition decks we will be sure to have it formatted in the same artistic style. Once we hit our first stretch goal we will send out a survey to all of our current backers to decide which word YOU want to be added to the deck.
Each deck of Sheep Sleep Seep will be sent to you in a water resistant plastic deck box that will hold all your cards (as well as some future expansions!) and keep your deck dry and protected from travel and the elements.
We have had a ton of fun creating and test playing Sheep Sleep Seep with a lot of our friends and family. We have attended local game designer nights to test play with strangers and other creators and have received great positive feedback each time. This game will really liven up any party and can be played with any crowd.
We have already printed prototypes of the standard deck and have sent out for prototypes of our special edition decks. All the cards have been tested to make sure they are durable and can withstand the competitive nature that comes with drinking games.

Who is Wolf Beard Games?
We are Tim and Riley! We have been getting together and playing games for over three years now and in December 2015 we set out to start creating our own.
Although this is the first game Wolf Beard Games is launching, it is far from the first that we have designed, created and tested. With the successful funding of Sheep Sleep Seep we are looking to grow our company so that we can bring our other projects to market. We have several other projects in varying stages of completeness but we decided to turn our focus to Sheep Sleep Seep as our first official project.
Wolf Beard Games goals are simple; to bring memories to every table. We plan on making games in a wide variety of genres and age ranges. We are even hoping to put out a new project by the end of the year. (More on that to come!) We also are trying to use talented local artists for all of our unique artwork on future projects and already have the artwork completed for three of them. It is important to us to use the talent that's around us to achieve our goals. We believe by doing this we can build a strong community of creators and friends.
What about our goals, budget, and timeline?
Our funding goal is low, only $700. How you ask? We will be using Drivethrucards to print our order. Drivethrucards is a print on demand service which allows us to be able to create the amount of decks that we need in order to fulfill our orders. This way we won't have to deal with an unreasonably sized order from an overseas offset printer. This also allows us to keep our shipping times to a minimum. We already have the files completed, and have had prototypes and plastic deck boxes delivered and tested. Basically, we have everything we need in order to start printing decks as soon as funding is complete and the funds are transferred. Also, all of our cards and koozies will be printed right here in the United States.
Any additional funds will go towards recouping the costs of forming an LLC, creating a website, paying artists, having more decks printed for retail, and for future projects. Any money that we make will be going right back into the company to bring more games to market and help Wolf Beard Games succeed.
Our timeline is short and sweet because we have everything set up ahead of time, we expect to get an order back from drivethrucards.com in about a month and then we will immediately start shipping them out to our backers. We have included an extra month to give us a little wiggle room. We promise that if we hit any snags we will be in constant communication with our backers.

Risks and challenges
Due to this being our first project with Kickstarter, we face all the normal risks and challenges that come along with it. However, we are doing all that we can and have been consulting many other creators and gathering as much information as we can in order to accurately, and to the best of our abilities, stand by our goals.
We already have all the files set and have received finalized prototype decks and have conducted a ton of test plays we feel we will be able to deliver on our promises. Aside from unsuspected health disparities, we will do everything needed to get this game shipped to our backers in a timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
