Ever want to play a family game that won’t lock you in for hours of commitment (Monopoly, anyone?)? Or have something that’s easy to toss in your purse to have handy in the pediatrician waiting room? On that long car or airplane ride? Or how about a fun way to decide who gets the last slice of pizza?
Check out the adorable RPS Revolution, a fun take on the traditional Rock, Paper, Scissors with adorable collectible figures!

The game is now taking pre-orders and is only $15 for two sets of the Magical Kingdom figures (that’s 6 collectible figures!) plus free shipping in the US!
Pre-order yours on her Kickstarter page and help make the game a reality!
