The company will kick off its WordStacker Kickstarter campaign this Wednesday.
WordStacker is a family word game that is quick to set up and easy to learn and play anywhere. It’s a card game of stacking, stretching and mixing up words, to score points to win.
Ingenium Games was founded by Anna Whitehead and Matt Knott in November 2015 to make fun, inclusive and easy to play games. The company is looking for distribution for WordStacker for 2016. The funds raised on Kickstarter will enable the games to be in stock for September this year.
Anna Whitehead, co-founder, commented: “Word games are often frustrating for those who aren’t wordsmiths. Playing against a wordy brain-box can be disheartening for players, especially children, who want to win for themselves, not be helped along by mum or dad. These are very exciting times. The game has had a fantastic reception from play-testers and industry professionals. This is our passion. We can’t help but be optimistic about the future.”
Matt Knott, co-founder, added: “My 10-year-old niece beats me all the time, then badgers me to play again and again and again. We’ve definitely levelled the playing field.”
There are already plans for a Junior version of the game in early 2017.
