Why Kickstarter?

I'm sure a lot of you are wondering why Kickstarter? When I first played Welcome To I saw a game that had so much potential to bring people around tables. Bring friends and family together to make memories and share an experience. That's what I'm all about, that's why I love gaming and that's why I started a publishing company.

We want this game to have as much support as possible; giving it the best chance at staying on shelves and subsequently inspiring friends and families to connect over games. There's two reasons to go to Kickstarter. 1) Test the reception to our promotional ideas. We have plans to consistently release promotional material for digital download and in physical form. 2) So Deep Water Games will have the resources to ensure Welcome To makes an impact on game shelves and game tables. going in to 2019!

As an architect in Welcome To..., you want to build the best new neighborhood in town!

Set in the United States of the 1950s, Welcome To... plays like a roll-and-write dice game in which you mark results on a score-sheet...but without dice. Instead you flip cards to create three dynamic options from which everyone chooses one. Race your friends and family to be the first to complete public goals. There's so much to do and so many paths to becoming the best suburban architect in Welcome To...

Because of the communal actions, game play is simultaneous and thus supports large groups of players. With many varying strategies and completely randomized action sets, no two games will feel the same!

Number of players: 1-100 (really!!)

Time required: 25 min

Recommended ages: 10+

Welcome to... Our Newest Title!

Deep Water Games is proud to announce, in partnership with Blue Cocker Games, the English worldwide release of Welcome To… in August of 2018!

1-100 Players, Ages 10+, 25 Minutes, MSRP $25

Designed by Benoit Turpin, Welcome To… is a new spin on the ‘Roll & Write’ genre of games, replacing dice with a deck of cards. In Welcome To…, players take on the role of 1950’s American architects, building and planning suburban neighborhoods.

Players compete to be named Best Suburb by giving the houses in their developments the best parks, pools, and curb appeal. The game supports 1 to 100 players out of the box and is perfect for any size playgroup, because everyone takes their turn at the same time!

Every round players select which house they want to build out of 3 available, writing their selected house onto their player sheet. They’ll then have the option of taking a bonus action, based on the house they picked. In addition to competing for the title of Best Suburb, they’ll also be racing to complete objectives set by the city. There’s multiple ways to score big in this game, and no two plays are the same.
