This is Kickstarter Tuesdays, this week I am talking about two projects that are interesting, and something you should pledge!
Puzzometry is a cool, new and unique kind of puzzle. There is no picture on the puzzle as you might expect from a typical jigsaw puzzle. The concept is a simple one: can you fit all 14 pieces into the frame? Trust them, it’s much more difficult than it seems! If you’re thinking that this is a jigsaw puzzle, think again. When playing the 1-person game (Puzzle Mode), it’s more of a brainteaser along the lines of the various mechanical games and logic games. There are literally thousands of possibilities! Can you find the correct one to solve Puzzometry?
There are three members of the Puzzometry family:
- Puzzometry: The original 14 piece brainteaser!
- Puzzometry Jr: Seven pieces of fun and challenge (not just for kids!!)
- Puzzometry Squares: The newest member of the Puzzometry family
The original Puzzometry takes just a few seconds to understand, but it can take hours to solve. In fact, of the testing that they have done so far with the prototypes, exactly ONE person has solved it without some assistance! Can you be the second? The difficulty of the puzzle can’t be overstated! It is VERY CHALLENGING! In spirit of challenging all of you puzzle lovers, the solution to Puzzometry will NOT be mailed out with the rewards. Of course, if you’re really stuck and in a moment of weakness you need some help, a clue is only an email away!
As of November 18th, this Kickstarter project has raised around $7,000 of the $500 goal they need to be funded. And as you know in Kickstarter, a project is not funded until the fundraising goal is reached! This project only has 7 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $20, you will get your own Puzzometry. For a pledge of $32, you will get 1 Puzzometry and 1 Puzzometry Jr. To learn more about Puzzometry and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/562283329/puzzometry-the-hardest-puzzle-you-will-never-solve-0
Funemployed is the satirical job application party game for 3 or more players. Make your best pitch for different jobs using four qualifications not fit for any real job interview. Creativity and the ability to spin a good story are key. It is tricky to justify your “burrito” qualification when applying for the job of astronaut. After all players have had their “interview,” the interviewer selects the person who created the best story out of their qualifications. That person wins the card and a new round starts.
It’s not always easy to explain why Fairy Dust, Jacked Forearms, Treats, and a Time Machine make you the most qualified to be a Competitive Eater, but they have faith you can do it. Players can use Qualifications in any way they can imagine–there are no restrictions. So long as the Qualification is used in one way or another, anything is fair game. It’s funny, fast, simple, and may make your beverage exit your nose while playing.
As of November 18th, this Kickstarter project has raised around $4,000 of the $12,000 goal they need to be funded. And as you know in Kickstarter, a project is not funded until the fundraising goal is reached! This project only has 30 days left to raise the $12,000 or it will not be funded! For a pledge of $29, you will get one copy of Funemployed, shipped straight to your door, along with the Print & Play files. For a pledge of $50, you will get one copy of the game, the Print & Play files, and a personally written, very funny annual review (suitable for framing) based on links to your social media pages.
