It started out as a Kickstarter project where it raised a total of S$121,370 out of their initial goal of S$20,000 from 2,164 backers.
I pledged S$40 for one set of Limpeh Says which consists of 550 cards (90 red and 460 white).
Shipping cost within Singapore is an additional S$7 by SingPost. Since it is a local product, I got it pretty fast.
It was targeted to ship in March 2017, but it got delayed by a few weeks (which is pretty good when it comes to Kickstarter standards). It was shipped to me on 5th April 2017, and I received it two days later on 7th April 2017.
About Limpeh Says
Limpeh Says is an (18+) card game for we the citizens of Singapore, containing 550 unique, localized cards revolving around the culture we’ve built here in our little country.
Guided by the ideology of being ‘morally wrong but politically right’, it includes topics from food, to National Service, and everything else in between.
The game is as simple as it gets. Each round, one player draws a Red Card. Everyone else answers with their best white card. The funniest combination wins.
It is common for Kickstarter projects to have stretch goals. A stretch goal is a funding target set by the project creator beyond the original Kickstarter goal.
Since Limpeh Says managed to raise five times more than their initial goal of S$20,000, they decided to throw in some extra stuff for their backers:
- +5 Red Cards
- +5 White Cards
- Better Card Quality
- Better Box Quality
- Kickstarter Special Expansion Pack “Limpeh Says: CNY Ang Paos”
- Super Special Kickstarter Backer’s Card
