Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the Week: Chai

So, I first encountered Chai at a fun gaming industry that was being held by a local publisher, I didn’t get to play it. We were at a charity gaming event together, still didn’t get to play it. I spent three days looking down the aisle at their beautiful art on a banner, still didn’t play. Why didn’t I play Chai? My own schedule aside, there was basically always someone else playing it. Day after day, event after event, I saw people playing it and heard people talking about it, until I got my grubby little reviewer hands on a prototype copy. My friends and I made some tea (because of course we did) and sat down to play. At the end I wasn’t left thinking “that was worth the wait”, I was left thinking “argh, why didn’t I try harder to play this sooner!”

Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: The Can Game

Kickstarter Spotlight - Geek-O-Rama - Can Game

What is the Can game?

Trick shot your way to the top! The Can game is an addictive, trick shot based family/party game that is sure to bring out your competitive side! The game itself is small enough to be played anywhere, by almost any age! Trick shots are just plain fun and rewarding to make. We wanted to create a simple, family friendly game that combines basketball with elements of beer pong and horseshoes. With other card and dice based games. We used coins, because they can be gathered up easily and the different weight and size of the coins makes for an interesting challenge. The funds from this Kickstarter campaign will fund the design work, cans and production of the card’s, dice and labels as well as packaging materials.

Thanks for taking at what looks to be a really fun kicks...
