Games for Us Not Them...Play When You Can!
The G.O.O.D. Game began in 2012 with poster board and determination.
The KS team consist of myself, and my family. When I started this project I had no idea what I was doing. It took 4 years and lots of mistakes. I did my best to keep to local talent. Andrea, my graphic artist at the time was indispensable. My brother Kurt (right) contributed art work and advice. He and I spent hours at the kitchen table figuring out the trek and how to make it work. Mom's table actually, she helped by keeping us fed and fueled. Many of her friends played during the prototype stage.
An Idea Is Born
Once upon a time I went shopping for a prepper game. With the preparedness community growing so quickly I thought it wouldn't be hard to find one. To my amazement there weren't any. I search the next year and still nothing. I discussed this with my family and they said "guess if you want one you'll have to make it yourself". I thought they were crazy! The longer I thought about it the more it took shape in my brain.
Meet Mr. Real Mature
My brother who has been prepping for years, came to visit one summer and we began to formulate The G.O.O.D. Game. When he had to return home we continued to work over the phone and through the mail.
Making a board game it is not an easy project, but it is an interesting one. We went through six board designs before getting one that played well consistently.
My kids, co-workers and my sister in-law all have helped one way or another. Sometimes I still wonder why am I doing this, and then I see someone pick up a game and grin.
Then I remember why, bringing people together. People with a common interest and playing on that interest.
Prepping is a serious subject, just the kind of subject that needs some comic intervention.
You've got to be able to laugh!
Family and Friends a big thanks to you!
I have been fortunate to have other people take interest. They have since become part of the ks family. Mr. Lewis came up with who ever has the most gear lays down the law. Which is one of my favorites in the instructions.
Jim hated the F.I.M.A camps because he got stuck in them and his wife beat him. That's when I knew then they were a winner.
My son and his buds at Bodack's game shop in Arnold Mo. spent time with research and development. That group came up with some alternative ways to play.
They also suggested toilet paper as one of the wild cards and everyone loves that.
Kurt came up with Frozen Guy and Crispy Guy and Suicide Guy. In fact, he came up with all the "dead guys". He also did the art for them, the vehicles and the riot police.
My daughter helped with art and continues to help with other projects.
We have begun our 3rd year on the market and are in every contiguous State with the exception of Vermont. We have also shipped to France, England, Canada and Germany.
Thank you for your support
Kill Switch Bunker Games is a home grown business. I operate out of my mid Missouri home. I personally wrap and ship every order (with the exception of Amazon during Christmas). It's always so exciting to see where they go. I hope to wrap up something for you because I know, if you read this far it's because your US not Them.
