    The Kickstarter Edition of Origin is special in a few ways: 1) it has a sweet thank-you card identifying it as the first edition; and 2) I am personally taking on debt (i.e. placing your order before Kickstarter gives me your $) to produce and ship your game in time for the holidays. Keep your loved ones warm this winter with the gift of hot air and heated debate!

    The #1 question we got in playtesting was, "can you make a version for (x)?" '90s pop culture, Shakespeare, sports, WWII... we will happily produce a series of expansion packs -- and they will be interoperable with the original game, not just different editions. This is your chance to vote on which categories come next! You'll also snag a digital copy of our Washington In Space box art.

    For those of us who are in it to win it, this 3-game reward also comes with my secret Tips & Tricks video, offering insights from playtesting and details that only I know as the game's creator. If your idea of game night is less about having fun and more about crushing competition, you'll want to be one of the 250 folks in the world with this behind-the-scenes knowledge.

    Origin has been influenced by (and lauded by) innovative high school teachers. This 5-game pack allows an entire classroom to play and learn. In addition, I'm offering a 30-minute video call to discuss how you can best use this game in class, based on insights from our participating educators.

    Got some budget dollars burning a hole in your pocket? Origin is about as unique as client gifts get, and is also a great tool for professional development. In addition, I'm offering a 30-minute video call as an ex-sales trainer to break down how Origin can sharpen your team's selling skills.

    You're the boss! We'll design you a 1-of-1 game based on any trivia category (or categories?) of your choosing. The history of your company? Your family tree? As long as you can point us to reference material, we can crank out a version just for you. (We'll send you a standard Origin game in the meantime as you await production.)
