Artist Frank Carter has launched a new Kickstarter project, but it’s not for his music. Instead, he and his bandmate from Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Dean Richardson, have invented a physical card game called Halves.
They’re trying to raise £15k (around $17.9k) on Kickstarter to launch what they’re describing as “a word game for the ruthless”, originally invented while travelling between gigs. The pair say there have been six years and four prototypes since that first idea, with Kickstarter representing its launch to the world.
As is customary on the crowdfunding platform, there are tiers of rewards, with fans who pay more able to pre-order ‘NSFW’ and ‘Punk’ expansion sets.
It’s just the latest example of music artists exploring other aspects of creativity in their careers, and the project seems to be going down well: it’s only just launched but is already closing in on £9k of pledges at the time of writing from more than 300 backers.
