I have recently started a game development company called First Stall Productions with my sister and another friend from my hometown of Argyle, NY. Our first game is called S.U.E.T. - the Society of Ultimate Evil and Terror. In this fast-paced card game, you compete against your opponents to see who can build their doomsday device first (while thwarting the others' efforts to complete theirs). Whoever is successful at building their device first wins a place in the Society.
Since we are just starting out we are using the crowd-funding site Kickstarter to market our game and if we meet our goal of $10,000 in pledges by March 15th, this will fund the first run of cards. There are many levels of backing available. $20 will get you a copy of the game with shipping included. But at other levels we are also offering exclusive cards only available on Kickstarter, a signed print by yours truly, a 5th evil genius, and more.
We would love it if you would consider supporting our project by becoming a backer, or by spreading the word (or both!) We have until March 15th to raise $10,000 or we get nothing and will have to find another way to get our card game out to the public.

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Blood cancers, as you may know, affect many people and is one of the main causes of death among children and young adults under the age of 20. I'm lucky in that I know a few survivors but it'd be great to finally find a cure or at least better treatments.
Of the total expenses at LLS, 75 percent goes to cancer research and they've invested more than $750 million since 1949 due to donors around the world. You could help by making a donation (http://uny.mwoy.llsevent.org/dsanzone). I'm also selling tickets ($75 each) to the gala at the Troy Hilton next month, if anyone is interested. I know times are tough economically but every little bit helps, whether it's $25, $50, or $500.
