Dan Rome is the most intelligent person I have ever met. I know I’m biased because I’m madly in love with him, but it’s circular… one of the reasons I love and admire him is that he’s highly intelligent… also because he’s sweet, funny, caring, and fearless!
The combination of his intense passion, intelligence, creativity, and wit results in super fun and interesting games. Dan’s games make you think, and they will spark some important conversations. I feel like these games could truly change the world in a positive way!
Dan has created a number of fun board games for our family to play over the years, and now he has a game that is so fun, so funny, so exciting, so thought-provoking, and so unique, that he has created a product for all to enjoy: Supervillain!
I also like that players can choose the general duration of their game beforehand. (The number of capers you choose to complete determines how long the game should last.) So Supervillain is great for when I need a quick laugh during a lunchtime break at work, or for when I have a Sunday afternoon to play a couple of long, epic Supervillain games.
Lucky Cat is using Kickstarter to crowdfund (raise money for) Supervillain. The campaign only lasts until October 31, and it’s only <20% funded so far. As a newbie into the gaming industry, it’s challenging to become well known. We feel that the best chances of becoming well known is simply to produce a great game, and players will spread the word organically. If the crowdfunding campaign is unsuccessful, Lucky Cat will still produce the game, and it will be sold on Amazon.
However, getting Supervillain funded by Kickstarter comes with some benefits, such as a bit of investment money and some notoriety with in the board game community. It also gives our supporters the opportunity to get the game at a great price, nd even to get IN the game! For a $650 pledge, supporters get the talented artist Theresa Johnson to draw them (or their friend, cat, etc.) and create their very own, play-able Supervillain game card. For $1,250, the person (or animal) becomes immortalized in the actual retail version of the Supervillain game! Pretty cool! There’s only 1 week left for that opportunity!

Here’s something else cool… my daughter, Sarah Rome, made a video to show how to play the game. I’m so proud of her! Sarah not only fabulously starred in it, but she did a great job of editing and producing it, all in a very short period of time.
By the way, the rules have been enhanced quite a bit since Sarah created this video. After lots of play-testing and thinking, Dan has made changes that maximize the excitement and fun.
If you like games, please consider buying Supervillain. If you don’t like games, please consider buying some fun, unique holiday gifts. We would also greatly appreciate your help to spread the word. Please like and follow Lucky Cat on Facebook and Lucky Cat on Instagram and share any of our pictures, videos, posts, and pages. THANK YOU in advance! I’ll keep you posted. 😄
I am enjoying being a part of Lucky Cat’s first project. I have learned a lot about Kickstarter, crowdfunding, the retail market, and the tabletop games industry. It’s taken my mind off my yucky medical stuff this year, and I’ve begun sharing my husband’s passion because I’m so excited about how FUN Supervillain is. Hooray! I don’t plan on quitting my day job as an Information Technology nerd anytime soon, but I love the idea of being a part of Dan’s successful game company. Fingers and toes crossed are crossed, and here we go!
