What was the most impressive thing you did when you were 12? We’re guessing it wasn’t designing your own card games that are so legit, they’d make great Christmas gifts.
That’s exactly what a group of 12-year-old kids in Singapore have done. They've designed First Class, a boxset of four different card games, and are now seeking $12,000 in funding via a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to so that it can go into production and be delivered in time for Christmas.
First Class is a project by non-profit community arts group, Superhero Me, which works with children from various backgrounds to empower them through arts programmes. The nine children who designed the boxset of card games are part of the Lengkok Bahru rental flat community who joined Superhero Me’s inaugural class six years ago.
To celebrate their 'graduation' from the programme, they reunited to design card games, which took about a year and involved a series of workshops, exercises and even photo walks, guided by Superhero Me facilitators.
