Flippin’ Games in Melton Mowbray are looking for £2,800 on Kickstarter to fund their new Flippin’ Fruit board game…
Hoping to do for board games what Candy Crush Saga did for smartphone gaming, Flippin’ Fruit is a competitive tabletop game with dice and cards. And unlike a typical fantasy board game, there’s no dark wizards or mighty axes of meat to contend with, just lots of fruity fun for the whole family to enjoy.
“With your help, we can get this juicy board game off the production lime and into homes all across the world,” says Andrew Platt of Flippin’ Games. “I’m a professional artist and my wife Stephanie loves gaming, hence making a perfect combination for game development!”
“The game concept originated during a long car journey from the east coast back to our home in Melton Mowbray,” he adds. “We’ve both been big game enthusiasts our whole lives, so having time to kill, we kicked about some ideas based on fruit machines we were obsessively playing by the sea. And thus, Flippin’ Fruit was born!”
Hit The Jackpot
At the time of writing, Flippin’ Fruit has already secured 94 backers and £1,711 of funding on Kickstarter – with 17 days still left to go.
Here’s what some of the game’s backers are saying about Flippin’ Fruit:
“What I like about Flippin’ Fruit is that the theme is very easy going. Giant monsters and dungeons tend to put off some people. I might be able to convince my non-gaming wife and teen daughter to play Flippin’ Fruits.” -Dan Morey
“I think this game is going to be great!” -Peter Crosby
“It was the artwork what caught my eye on this project first.” -PetrF
Solopress wish Andrew and Stephanie the best of luck with their first Kickstarter project – do YOU want to play a game of Flippin’ Fruit?
