FlamingOs Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Flamingos aren't born pink. They become pink because they eat shrimp, that contain pink pigments that eventually make its way into the bird's feathers. Just a random factoid for you as we look at FlamingOs, a new card game that's up on Kickstarter where players are Flamingos looking to collect Os, which are acquired by getting shrimp.

From the campaign:

FlamingOs is a fun card game for 2–5 players. Players take turns drawing cards, pairing Mingos to earn Shrimp. 10 Shrimp points earn a player 1 'O' card. (Shrimp cards are worth 1 point. Jumbo Shrimp cards are worth 5 points.) The first player to get 3 'O' cards wins. But watch out! There are Sharks, Pelicans, a Crab, Seagulls, and special Shrimp that can hurt or help a player’s advancement to win.

FlamingOs takes 5 minutes to learn and plays about 20–40 minutes.

The campaign's about 1/4 of the way to its goal with 13 days left to go.
