Frequently asked questions

HOW CAN I BUY SOCK MONSTERS?


We are preparing to start a crowdfunding campaign with Indiegogo. Once we launch the campaign, you will be able to back our project. Once the campaign is done, we will start manufacturing and shipping the game. Please click here to receive updates from us on our development and campaign launch.




SO WHAT IS THE STORE LINK THEN?


Sock Monsters game and story, are a part of the Gianimo project. Gianimo has 4 stories, of which Sock Monsters is the first. We love games, we love stories and we love our characters. The Gianimo store is a way for us to share our characters, while supporting our efforts to continue developing our games and stories.




WHAT AGES IS THE GAME INTENDED TO?


Sock Monsters is a children's card game for all ages. We were required to mark the game as intended for kids 7 years and up. But frankly, if a child can hold a deck of 5 cards, they're big enough to play. Grown ups who enjoy slapping their friends with TORNADOS and steal their cards, are not too old to play the game. There is no age limit!




HOW MANY PLAYERS CAN PLAY THE GAME?


Sock Monsters card game can be played by 2 to 5 players. For 2 players, you will need to remove the 2 Unraveled Sock cards and the 2 Knitting Needles cards.




HOW LONG DOES THE GAME TAKE TO PLAY?


Average play time over millions and millions of play-tests, is about 15 minutes. Playing time normally depends on the number of players and on the level of competition. We saw game lasting as short as 6 minutes and up to 30 minutes when the players found it more fun to attack one another and steal cards, rather than actually winning by collecting socks...




IS THERE A STORY FOR THE SOCK MONSTERS?


Yes there is. There is a very short children's story, which was published online on our Gianimo website years ago. Since then, we removed it and now it will be printed again in the booklet that will be added to the game box.

If you want to read more about the Sock Monsters, where they come from and what they are up to, you are invited to follow us on Twitter and Facebook, or to subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of the page.
