March 27, 2016: Crowdfunding Focus: Pack O Game 2

Crowdfunding Focus Pack O Game

People are always looking for the biggest games, with all sorts of bells and whistles. But what if some of the best games are hiding in gum-sized packages? That's the idea behind Chris Handy's Pack O Game Set 2 on Kickstarter, a follow-up to the hugely successful Pack O Game campaign from 2014. The idea behind these games are big game play in a tiny package. The containers are the size of a standard pack of gum (get it -- Pack O Game?), and each game provides a unique play experience. From a press-your-luck game like Rum, to the deduction game Spy, there's a genre here to appeal to any gamer. I'm a huge fan of the stylized art, capturing each game's specific themes.

If you missed out on the first Kickstarter, those games are also available, complete with storage bags. Plus, each stretch goal has unlocked a new pack, so you can get 17 games for the price of one big box game otherwise. That's enough pocket-sized entertainment to last a lifetime, or at least 17 days, give or take.

There's one more week left to back the Kickstarter, so pick your packs fast!
