I bought One : Literally Five Cards

#NoMoreAwk

Here’s what they sent:

Literally Five Cards.

I don’t know what I expected.

But that’s not all!

It also came with a little note saying that they would refund all our money because it was a joke project and we weren’t supposed to actually back it!! (Now you tell me!)

I’m impressed. Think of all the joke projects on Kickstarter, how many of them would be classy enough to refund the money and finish the project?

They also sleeved the cards which is a nice touch.

Practice?

I guess they made this joke project just to practice setting up a Kickstarter project, and were as surprised as anyone when suckers like me actually gave them money. (Someone teach them about “Draft” mode!)

Anyway, their other project, their “real” project, is live and only has a couple of days left. It’s a sci-fi board game for 3-6 players.


If board games are your thing, I recomend checking it out. These people have already proven themselves to be good citizens of Kickstarter by following through professionally, even on their joke project.

KickCard

kickcard_01

This man designed … a rectangle. A rectangle that you put in your wallet and carry around with you.

So I put a lot of hours into designing a solid piece that could easily be transported but still multiply the surface area of the kickstand several times over.
Oh yea, It can take a lot of time and skill to design a card the same size and shape as a credit card.

Tracing a credit card isn’t easy. Sometimes you’re not holding it tight enough and it slips while you’re tracing it, and then your whole blueprint is ruined.

However, it looks like our friend David A. Lawicki II realized that maybe his design, as impressive as it was, didn’t have quite everything it needed.

As we’ve learned, the way to ensure Kickstarter success is to add a bottle opener to your product.

Oh, for crying out loud. That is not a bottle opener. That is just a triangle.
