Lawn Battleship has been a long-term dream. Years ago on a whim, I attended a board game inventing group. I really enjoyed play testing the games and being part of the inventing and refining process...so I started brainstorming my own ideas. I recalled a college friend who hosted a party where we played a game she invented called 3-D twister. We ended up playing it for hours. This led me to explore existing board games that I could possibly bring to life in the great outdoors. My ideas resulted in Lawn Battleship.
I sat down with my wife, a piece of cardboard, a pair of scissors and made my first prototype. My in-laws were kind enough to play the first version, and it was successful enough that I made a second prototype out of triple corrugated cardboard, piano wire and duct tape. More and more family and friends played the game, but when my nephew asked if he could keep the game for Christmas...Lawn Battleship moved from hobby to passion.
I made the third garage-prototype of sturdier materials which allowed us to play test, change rules and tweak for over two years. After a while my wife agreed to have a professional prototype made as long as it counted as my mid-life crisis. I happily agreed and invested in a professional prototype, which you can now see on Kickstarter.
