Preppin Header

Hello!

My name is Travis. I'm a father, a husband, a filmmaker, and now a game designer. Together with my friend Darth*, we created Preppin. 

*Yes, that's his real name - he was born in 1977 and his parents were big fans of a certain film released that year...

What is Preppin?

Preppin is a 2-4 player card game for ages 8+. The goal of the game is simple, keep your family alive and be the lone survivors of the cataclysmic disasters.

How do you play Preppin?

For the basic rules of the game you can watch the How to Play video, which is also in the video above. The complete set of Preppin rules will be included with the game.

Where did Preppin come from?

Darth had a stroke of inspiration while on a disaster movie-and-TV-show-watching binge. We decided to take that idea and implement it into a card game system we had already been working on. Our goal was to make a fun game the whole family could easily enjoy. Plus, it's a great conversation starter!

What we need.

The game decks and packaging are ready to go now, we just have to give the printers the okay. Soon after that, we can start shipping out the decks. But before we can get to that step, we need a little help getting the presses rolling and to gauge interest. Our goal is to print 1,000 decks in the 1st Edition, with perhaps more editions - and additions - to come, depending on interest.

$10,000 will cover the 1st Edition printing and IndieGoGo supporter shipping costs, plus the supporter perks, IndieGoGo & PayPal fees, and a bit of advertising & promotion. We also hope to throw a launch party & game tournament here in Portland to celebrate a successful campaign and future retail launch, should we raise our goal amount. If that happens, all IndieGoGo supporters will be invited, of course, so stay tuned!

Special Note: We are proud to be able to keep all the manufacturing within the USA, at a Union print shop here in Portland, OR. The decks and packaging will be printed on receycled cardstock with soy inks. Huge shout out to the folks at Morel Ink for working closely with us and providing us a fantastic printing quote & samples. Although nothing can beat the quotes we received from overseas, we feel it is very important to support local business, even if that means paying a bit extra in manufacturing cost. It's just part of who we are.
