-- THREE DIMENSIONAL COMIC BOOK VIDEO GAME BOARD GAME --

(CAMPAIGN BEGINS: MARCH 10th, 2014 - FOR 30 DAYS)

NOTE: THIS GAME DOES NOT HAVE TO REACH ITS GOAL TO BE PRODUCED! WE ARE MOVING AHEAD WITH PRODUCTION UPON COMPLETION OF THIS CAMPAIGN AND ALL DONORS WILL GET THEIR PERKS AS PROMISED. DON'T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO BE PART OF SOMETHING SPECIAL - DONATE TODAY!

The Homemade Game Guru is a You Tube channel started in 2008 as a creative hub for DIY how-to videos centered on making cardboard crafts, comic book themed crafts, geeky concepts and general over-the-top inventions made out of simple materials. Creator and host Luanga Lue Nuwame is an award-winning designer who conceived the Homemade Game Guru as a way to share his ideas and love of inventions with viewers worldwide. (http://www.youtube.com/homemadegameguru)

Superpowerful Bonanza will be the first board game published under the Homemade Game Guru Products banner. Like all Homemade Game Guru concepts, Superpowerful Bonanza will be handcrafted with each and every edition made with care and dedication. Mass production is of NO interest here!  All perks are limited editions EXCLUSIVE to this campaign.  Any and all future 2015 specialty market editions of Superpowerful Bonanza will be REDESIGNED to differentiate them from these Indiegogo exclusives!


The goal is to raise at least $5000 to garner materials, tools/machinery and a small industrial space to begin making editions of Superpowerful Bonanza in time for Christmas (for donors to this campaign) and for specialty stores/comic book stores (Spring 2015).

Although the campaign is 'Flexible Funded', if the $5000 minimum funding level isn’t reached by the 30 day mark, I will offer a refund to anyone who requests their money back! This game and the promised perks WILL BE MADE at the end of this campaign - regardless if it fails or succeeds (this is my dream and you never kill a dream - you just work twice as hard). However, if you request a refund if the campaign doesn't succeed, I will respectfully oblige with a "thank you"! I want my donors to feel comfortable with their investment and this is my unique way to respect the chance you're taking. But again - this game WILL move forward!  

Superpowerful Bonanza was first conceived on March 10th, 1999 when Luanga was going through a deep depression during his early 20s. The idea of the game unexpectedly came to Luanga after he suffered a mental breakdown and within six months of dedicated work, the finished concept was completed using only basic materials like pencil crayon, Bristol board, cardboard, glue, duct tape and toy cars.

The creation of this game not only served as an anti-depressant for its creator, but it also started Luanga’s life long journey of creating with cardboard. In essence, Superpowerful Bonanza was responsible for the creation of the Homemade Game Guru You Tube channel and over 100 personal inventions. 15 years since the concept was first conceived, the You Tube channel it helped create is now giving birth to a new handmade limited edition rendition of the game!

More information on the history of the game’s creation and how mental health can be healed with invention and imagination, please view the following video: Mental Health, Depression, Board Games & Crowdfunding

Superpowerful Bonanza combines three amazing things into one concept: 1) Board games, 2) Video game-play and 3) Comic Books! It is a three-dimensional multilevel board game that plays like a classic video game and stars awesome looking comic book characters – it doesn’t get any better than that!

The game was developed to play like a classic ‘side-scrolling’ video game reminiscent of Double Dragon or Contra, but with a series of new superheroes and villains created by Luanga Nuwame and drawn by Daniel Wong.


Superpowerful Bonanza has five levels, each with its own boss and differing rules of play.  Up to four players move along each level collecting weapons, health, powers and superpowers revealed on game cards selected with each move. Certain spaces reveal minor enemy characters players must battle using a combination of strength, speed and intelligence points. There are other obstacles revealed throughout the game and players can choose to either help or hinder their fellow players/heroes.



In order to defeat the boss at each level, players must collect enough weapons, powers, superpowers and strength/speed/intelligence points to combat those of the bosses.  Each boss has their own card deck with weapons and powers. Thus, moving around the board quickly to reach the boss first isn’t good enough – without the right combination of provisions, the heroes will lose! 

As an added feature, there are two Secret Levels on each extreme side of the game.  Players must find the right spaces and get the perfect roll of the dice to enter the secret levels and gain the treasures available.

Visually, the game has been designed to be a stunning work of art. Hand cut and glued, all aspects of the game are painstakingly put together. Toy trees and individually wrapped and glued building balconies are added with care. The completed game is as much of a centerpiece as it is a highly competitive superhero battle-fest! A cardboard and a spruce wood edition are available in this campaign.

Both the cardboard or spruce wood editions come with the following components:

1)  The completed handmade Game Board

2)  A pack of toy trees to adorn level two

3)  250 game cards

4)  Two dice

5)  1 card tray to hold all cards not in play

6)  5 card battle boards

7)  One spinner

8)  A pack of score sheets

9)  46 health sticks

10)  Nine character playing pieces

11)  Game manual + character bios

12)  Each edition signed, embossed sealed and numbered by Luanga Nuwame
