A few months ago, I wrote about the Hubbs’ zombie card game. And now They’re Coming is here.
The Hubbs is relieved that the game has come to life. He used a company called The Game Crafter to print and ship the games to our Kickstarter backers, though a few Chicagoans will get hand-delivered copies from us this week. (And a few Ohioans will receive deliveries in a few weeks.)
I’ve also stashed a deck or two for myself. Since the littlest nerd has arrived, I’ve been thinking about all the amazing bits of creativity we’ll share with him once he’s a little older: this card game that the Hubbs created, a beautiful handmade quilt from Nana (my mom), several books and paintings from Pappy (my dad), and magazines that I edited. (Maybe in a few years I can add books that I write to the mix, too.) When I think about the things I leave behind in this world, the first and most awesome will always be my boy. But there will also be little bits of creativity that leave our mark, too. I hope we teach the littlest nerd that there’s a pure joy in creating something from scratch, or seeing someone you love do so, just for the fun of it.
