Kyle Soehn, former member of the Canadian National Trampoline Team, is promoting a card game where players put together Trampoline skills … while sitting at a table.
Here’s how it started:
When the Covid-19 pandemic forced our gym to close and, like many of you, I suddenly had a lot more time on my hands. My wife and I started playing card games in the evenings, since our normal hobbies had stopped. While playing another card game, I had a thought that there aren’t any trampoline or gymnastics themed games available.
I set to work outlining the framework for a card game based on trampoline skills. After several iterations and trials, we came up with a simple and fun game that anyone could play. The game is called ‘2 Trick Spectacular’ and is loosely based on the 2 trick spectacular trampoline competition.
I knew that this game would be hit when I was playing with my mother-in-law (who is not a trampoline enthusiast), we ended up playing rounds back and forth for over an hour. I was happy to see that without any exposure to the sport of trampoline that you could learn the game quickly and find enjoyment.
From there, I started working with suppliers to see if I could get the game made. It took some time but I finally found a supplier that met my quality standards and allowed me to order a small order of 100 decks.
My goal for this project was to create a fun game based on trampoline that anyone could play. I hope that one day I am able to see a group of kids huddled together at a competition playing this game.
