I'm just put off that the largest 3 costs to the game are the game board, the box it would come in and the shipping.  WTF


All the time I put into creating and producing the team sets of cards would be made up by selling certain teams dozens of times.  All the other components are a few dollars combined.  



The demo idea subverts the game board issue, but I still have to get it out to people.

I've got a first try at a website for the game.  Please check it out and provide feedback.  I'm wanting it to be simple, informative, and easy to purchase.  
I'll be adding buying buttons (paypal, shopping cart, etc), but how's the site feel?  Like a real, live normal thing?  



Let me know.

Not bad.  I think you need to provide some description of the game play.  I have my imagination and memories of some of the old board games of the past, but that will help deliver the 'value proposition'.  Perhaps a video.

I will want to buy this.  The full version.

Hmm. I get a security warning when I try to get on the website. My computer is pretty locked down, so that might be the problem. Or maybe Microsoft Edge?

Yes, I need a 4th page, and I'll do some short videos for each aspect of the game for now.

i've started creating pre-orders for the most enthusiastic potential customers and today came to the realization that I've cut costs a lot....


changing from 40 individual play-call cards to having them all on one big team card has decreased my pages printed from 11 color/10 black-and-white down to just 5 color pages.


That'll really help, the more orders I get.  Just sharing.

I'm a little confused at the moment, I can't seem to pick the 4 teams.   Am I missing something.   Love to order this OAM.

The site isn't up and running yet, it just exists.  Drew has some tinkering to do, as I'm little help. 
Just let me know your 4 teams here, and I'll get 'em started.

Forgive me OAM, a little disheveled following our house move this week,  I don't think I can see a list of the available teams (now).  I did survey the game board post on this site also.

Basically it's any top-10 team (final AP poll) in any season going back to 1971 AND any team period from 2005-now. 
And if you really want someone outside of those parameters, I'll try my best.


I'm assuming you'll want the 2000 Sooners, the '05 Horns, and a couple of Gators greats teams, yes?

@OrangeAfroMan , you've got a dropdown now in the product named "testing".  you can use it as a model on how to build out the others.  

I'm working on the styling, now... I'd rather see the dropdown box to the left above the 'add to cart' or 'buy now' buttons... 

we're getting there.....

I see it's on the left, thanks.  Where does the customer specify which teams he wants?
