Over the last three years we’ve run three fundraisers where we’ve created some really great swag to help fund our endeavors here at Flip the Force. This year, we’re mixing it up a little bit.
We’ve put so much time and money into the site over the years and all our fundraising goals have all gone strictly to the site (we haven’t pocketed a single dime), and this year we’ve managed to run the operations here on a much lower scale. Even our change over to WordPress wasn’t more than a few hundred dollars!
With operating costs drastically lower this year, we’ve decided to have some fun for Worlds 2016.
We wanted to really give back to the community this year and to show FFG that there is still some really awesome swag to release for this game. As such, we’ve created some really great Episode 7-based product: three doublesided plastic affiliation cards (one for each affiliation) and a double sided plastic Balance card!
So, here’s how to get them: I am putting a bounty on myself this year at Worlds 2016. If you happen to get paired against me at Worlds and win with either Light Side or Dark Side, I’ll immediately hand you one of our awesome new Balance cards. If you happen to sweep me (win both games), I’ll give you the Balance card along with your choice of an affiliation card.
Additionally, I will be hanging around on Saturday and will give the Top 4 players a full set of the three affiliation cards and the Balance card. If I somehow make the Top 4, I will give 5th place a full set instead. If someone makes the Top 4 and already won either a Balance card or affiliation card, I will gladly give the next placement down one affiliation and Balance card, and complete the other player’s missing swag.
The affiliation cards are double sided (Jedi/Sith, Rebel/Navy, and Smugglers/Scum) and are made with of a thin plastic material (professionally made, we didn’t arts and crafts these ourselves!). They’re slightly thinner than a standard card but won’t rip or tear and won’t be adversely affected by water. The Balance card is made of the same material.
So come out to Worlds, kick butt, get swag!
