DECKS

STEGS & CERATO

Moving to Kentucky in 2016, I found a Facebook group for the then “Kentuckiana Browncoats” looking for a new admin; the post was old and there were 3 members who were fans but inactive. I jumped in head first. Two weeks later we had a logo, site, accounts in all of the social mediums (Facebook group and page, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest), t-shirt designs, buttons, stickers, and patches. We also hosted our first annual showing of Serenity, set up at our first convention, was featured in a Firefly podcast / radio show out of England, and a radio show in Lexington.
Three years later, we’ve got 167+ members who have become our extended family. We bowl once a month, support each other in our creative endeavors, and, a few months ago, we added Patreon to our arsenal. Last year we even pulled a train job on a real train. In our first three years, without a structured charitable “plan” in place, we’ve raised over $2,000.00 for Kentucky-based charities. Moving forward, we plan to do much more.
As Captain of this small band of “big damn heroes” (as the show calls them), I’m always designing new types of swag for my members. My goal for this year for the group, and myself personally, is to do more charitable good for children with cancer and other permanent, often fatal illnesses. To do this, we set up at conventions throughout the year and I do shows as Renmeleon.
Sold under a “buy one / gift one” model, the deck was designed without infringements on copyright. The deck is two kawaii-style dinosaurs, simply put, though Browncoats will know the leaf and dinosaur references.
The total bill to print 1,000 decks is approx $4,000 not including pouches / boxes. I am researching and have applied for, so far, one 1k grant. Preorders, grants, and Kickstarter will fund this project. Decks are 30 cards including 13 pairs and four information cards – about, contact, sponsor, and how to play. Sponsors who contribute 1k will get one side of a card with four spots available. Decks will cost 4.00 each, and retail for 15.00 each with 3.00 per deck going toward events and more charitable projects as well as allowing us to gift two decks per individual deck purchase to children’s charities and children’s hospitals as part of the outreach here in Kentucky and globally.
If you would like more information on sponsoring a deck, you can download the talksheet here and email me if you have further questions. Please use “Dino deck sponsor” in the subject line.


HELLO MOON RABBIT

Hello Moon Rabbit is my way of spreading a little compassion out into the world. In Japanese culture, Moon Rabbit literally stands for compassion. This shinkei-suijaki (memory) game feeds my love of cards by paying homage to one of my favorite games growing up. We used to call it Concentration, Memory, or Pairs – a simple matching game that can be learned easily and played by anyone.

LUNA & PERCIVAL

A work in progress, Luna & Percival are based on two plush toys that my daughter RockPaperFox created and gifted my husband and I this past Christmas. Part of a matching game deck Luna & Percival will be released in 2019 as a children’s picture book.

Moon Rabbit for a Moon Rabbit.
