Back Itchy Feet: the Travel Game - Live on Kickstarter Now!

Have Itchy Feet-style fun with family and friends - new and old!


When you're traveling, you meet a lot of new people, and you want them to like you. Right? Well, put a smile on their faces right away with a card game - not just any card game, but a travel-themed card game based on ITCHY FEET!

Itchy Feet: the Travel Game features:

  • Humorous item cards like the Fake Mustache, Friend Hidden in Your Luggage, and the All-Terrain Unicycle
  • Social interaction - you'll be trading, stealing, and throwing each other off the beaten track
  • 13 countries and 6 different passports
  • 7 characters like the Adventurous Retiree and the Expert Packer
  • Fun for 2-6 players, ages 9 to 9,999
  • Full Itchy Feet-style art hand-drawn by me!
It's the perfect way to:
  • Break the ice with that good-looking stranger in the hostel
  • Pass the time on the plane or in the train station
  • Get the family together for some hands-on good times

The Kickstarter campaign for Itchy Feet: the Travel Game is live, so if you want a copy, head on over and back the project now!

Thanks!

Your pal,
Mal




Itchy Feet Month #4: Lag Tolerance

Itchy Feet Month #1: Foreign Comprehension

It's Day #1 of Itchy Feet Month, where I'll be publishing a one-panel comic every day for 30 days! Don't worry - they're all freshly-drawn, original material. Yes, this is part marketing ploy to get you to check out the Itchy Feet card game on Kickstarter - and I genuinely think you'll love it, if you like this comic - but I also want to make sure you get quality comics on top of it. It's win-win!

See you tomorrow!

Details Missing (Also: Announcing Itchy Feet Month!)

When you ask directions but don't understand the answer


---------------------------------------- ATTENTION KIND READER! ---------------------------------------------

Do you love travel? Do you love Itchy Feet? Do you love having fun? Yes, yes, and yes? Then you might be interested in Itchy Feet: the Travel Game!



Whaaaat?! Yes, that's right, an Itchy Feet-themed playing card game, by travelers, for travelers. I've been working on it with a game designer for the last year and a half, and on August 1st we're launching the Kickstarter campaign.

To promote it, for the whole length of the campaign from August 1st to 30th, it'll be Itchy Feet Month, and I'll be releasing a comic every day! They'll be single-panel comics, but there will be 30 of them in a row. Yes, I am insane. 

So stay tuned - and I'll see you again on Tuesday, with a link to the campaign where you can reserve your copy! Woo hoo!

End Result Irrelevant

When you order at a restaurant in a foreign language and it's exciting even if you don't know what you actually ordered

It's like getting your favorite order, every time!

Truly Inedible

Thai black eggs are gross. Durian is gross. But Icelandic shark meat Hákarl is the worst food ever created


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No Hákarl involved, promise.

Airlines always thank me for loyalty I don't feel

Just Do It

Language learning if you speak with confidence you'll do better

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I listened to your feedback about the text last week, so I'm trying something new. The vast majority of comics out there use text in ALL CAPS, simply because it's easier on the eyes. I always wanted to phase into that eventually anyway, so here's a first try. I think it's a little thick and large, but much easier to read than last week, wouldn't you say?

Same Same But Different

Some people are picky eaters


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


With your incredible support through Patreon, I was able to save up and buy an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil. It's freakin' amazing to use for drawing! This is the first comic I made with it, and I think it turned out okay. I'm still getting used to it and I'm sure I'll get better as I go (feedback welcome!). But I know this will be game-changing for the future. So thank you very much, patrons!

Another fun feature of the iPad is the ability to save videos of my drawing as I create it. It's a fun insight into my process, if that interests you at all. But of course I'm saving those as a reward for my patrons! So if you want to see how this and future comics are made, support Itchy Feet on Patreon!

Course Correction

In Italy, don't get full on the appetizer. There are many more courses coming

For comics as endless as Italian meals!

Incomplete Picture

That feeling when you're missing words in a foreign language and laugh at the wrong time


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I won't ever laugh at what happened to your grandma.

Cultural Clockwork

Swiss watches are perfectly accurate because the Swiss are so punctual. If the Spanish made watches, they would be crazy because the Spanish are never on time anyway


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why keep time at all when you could be supporting
Itchy Feet comics instead? Yes, that makes sense.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: Hey guys, please keep it civil. I'm going to be deleting any comments that insult other people, though I'll keep any that accuse ME of being insulting. My intention was absolutely not to offend anyone - this was clearly a joke gone wrong. But it's good to keep up my failures as well, to remind me in the future that sometimes I make mistakes. 

As I said though, please be civil to one another.

Inverse Value

Getting large bank notes money bills from the ATM is worthless, nobody will have change
