Some kids in Texas started a KS for a kid's card game.

Please help 'em out?
Sixty backers, and just under halfway there!

Thx!

Cool dad. Even if the kickstarter fell short, they would have learned a lot from this.

I was wondering how long it would take to see something like this... I hope dad is ready to teach good time and money management skills.

Guessing its a little like War or something with traditional cards. Any kid who isn't stuck to an Xbox and is out making his/her/their own games gets my support.

I'm in.

I did go ahead and back it. My son has a weird thing for anything crab related, also the "Poison Fart Gas Crab" kind of sealed the deal for me.

Hi all,

Thanks for the support! I'm going to let you all in a Monster Crabs exclusive! The boys made shirts for both school next week and the lego fest tomorrow. Their idea!

Amazing. My boys did it. If you have seen the last update, you'll know that they worked very hard at getting some marketing going, but for some reason, we had a mini-viral go at the internet today and we slammed through the funding barrier. Again, thanks goes to BGG and the supporters that came from here. This was a very instrumental interaction in GSTW getting funding.

I can't be prouder. I really wish I had videoed one of the cold calls Tobin did this past weekend. He was extremely nervous, but plowed through. The game is going to fantastic!

I thought you guys might like an update. We have some new pictures of crabs, prototypes are in the mail and a local university did a small piece on us, including a nice blog post.

Surely the best use of Kickstarter I have ever seen. I missed out on this, but well done to all concerned...

Received mine in the mail yesterday. The artwork is fantastic.

The gameplay has a ton of random chance involved but an idea I came up with to mitigate that a bit but still keep the game understandable by kids is to have players draw 4 cards and choose which 2 they want to play.

This would add just a touch of strategy and also introduce some very basic deck building concepts.

I'm looking forward to playing this with my son when he opens it on Christmas day.
