Back Up! Card Game Created As Fun Way to Cope With Back Pain

Back Up!

Great gift idea for anyone with back pain!

Get Well Games announced today it is raising funds on Kickstarter to produce Back Up!, a new card game for back pain sufferers, with a goal of $5,000 by 6 AM ET, Oct 13. As of October 8, it was roughly halfway to the goal.

Back Up! is an entertaining card game whose goal is to reduce back pain to zero. Players win the game by collecting “health” cards to reduce back pain. It is unique in the marketplace as the content and format of the game are specially designed for back pain sufferers. It can be played lying down and the cards are slightly larger than standard playing cards for easier handling.

After recovering from back surgery, Get Well Games founder Christopher Burtt saw a need for games that help people feel better about their medical issues.

“Lying in bed for days on end after my back surgery, I thought there had to be something fun to do that would keep my mind occupied,” noted Burtt. “I came up with the idea for the game and the method of play, then populated it with fun facts from my own experience and additional research. Now, I have produced a complete game that people love to play! It is enjoyable for anyone suffering from back pain, and a great gift idea for those who know someone with back pain.”
