Ducklings: New Card Game Lets Players Experience Cooperative Duck Parenting

Los Angeles, CA – On June 28 2017, Deck Head Games launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund their upcoming card game, Ducklings. The game contains over 60 cards featuring beautiful custom hand painted artwork and is guaranteed to deliver once the team reaches their $8,000 funding goal.

Ducklings is a sanguine but rewarding game about loss, empathy, cooperation, family, love, and partnership. As a player, you must work together with your partner to safely move your three baby ducklings to a new home,” the team explained, “However, the path between the two bodies of water is a dangerous place where no bird is surely safe– where parents will be lucky if one of the two parents makes it to their new home with a single duckling alive!”

Deck Head Games consists of Tim, James, and Aimee, three students who met at the University of Southern California (USC) in 2016 and have been making games together ever since. In October 2016, the team started working on Ducklings, and in January 2017 they participated in the USC chapter of Global Game Jam and won the Judge’s Choice Best Overall Game Award.

Now Deck Head Games is turning to the Kickstarter community for help in bringing their game to life. They are excited to announce that they have secured manufacturing with AdMagic (manufactured Cards Against Humanity and Exploding Kittens). Distribution will be handled by Quatermaster Logistics, who was recommended by Man Vs Meeple.  

“We care deeply about the play experience of our users. With the game Ducklings, we’ve done over 114 playtests, where we actually set the game down in front of strangers and allowed them to give blind feedback,” said the creators, “We’ve iterated upon the game multiple times to make sure it’s fun to play and emulates the themes of love, family, parenting, responsibility, empathy, and coping effectively.”

In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including one copy of Ducklings for $20, a copy of the game with your name featured in the Rulebook for $30, and more. The first 25 backers to pledge $75 will receive four Limited Edition Duck Miniatures along with two copies of Ducklings, their name featured in the Rulebook, and one eight player Rulebook.
