Houston, TX – On September 7th, Flying Bison Games launched a Kickstarter campaign for Spazz, an exciting new card game that combines speed, hilarious gestures, and your silly side for 2-6 players, ages 6 and up. Games like Cards Against Humanity and Exploding Kittens can be fun, but they aren’t really suitable for all audiences. That’s why the duo behind Flying Bison Games, Jonathan Ricks and Jonathan Eller, want to introduce more classic games that everyone will love to play!
“We at Flying Bison Games have endeavored to create an entirely new lineup of games for the next generation’s collection. That’s you! Most of the new popular card games out there aren’t appropriate for kids, mixed company, or Aunt Laurie’s sensitive ears,” the creators explain, “Spazz is perfect for the entire family, your friends, kids, game night, or any night. It’s easy to learn and fun to play. Plus, you look like a complete moron playing it (aka SPAZZ), which is hilarious.”
Finishing college, starting a family, and becoming experts in their respective careers delayed the Jonathans’ formal plans to make games. However, two years ago in 2014, they were sitting around the table playing Uno (bored with it and trying to make it more fun) and they decided they would finally make their dreams come true. That night they started making Spazz a reality on a paper towel. The company was named as an homage to their favorite show, and they hired an amazing couple of designers that helped make the game what it is today.
Spazz is essentially a matching game, with four base cards: Green Grass, Red Heart, Yellow Fever, and Blue Sky. Each of these cards has an action that goes along with it. Each turn, players put down cards until there is a match, then they must do the action as fast as they can. The last person to do the action takes the pile of cards and a new round begins. The first person to use all of their cards wins. There are also five special action cards to help keep things interesting. For example, if you use a SPAΖΖ! card, players must do all four actions in order as fast as they can!
“Our goal in life is to make amazing games. A REALLY close second is to out-fund Exploding Kittens. With their over 220,000 backers and $8.7M raised in 30 days, that shouldn’t be too hard, right?! If you’ve never heard of that game, that’s ok too. Spazz is better!” the team says, “So if you’re into fun games that make you look completely crazy, while laughing so hard your stomach hurts, and turning any gathering into a party, then we need your help to make Spazz a reality. We know you’ll love it as much as we do.”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including one early bird copy of Spazz The Card Game for $10, a copy of the game with an expansion pack and a digital edition of the Flying Bison Games’ recent game ‘Eat It!’ for $20, and more. Backers can also pledge $100 for a digital copy of Spazz The Card Game, an autographed Collector’s Edition of the game and a thank you letter from the Jonathans or $250 for all previous rewards and a 30-minute Skype session with the creators.
“We are partnering with Make A Wish to donate a copy of Spazz for every 100 KS Backers. Spazz is a perfect game for these special kiddos to enjoy. We hope to donate thousands of copies,” the team says.
