Press Release: Dress For Critical Success in LudoCherry's Geeky Clothing Line

Dress For Critical Success in LudoCherry's Geeky Clothing Line
With shirts and skirts now available in five "subtle but geeky" patterns inspired by tabletop games, LudoCherry will let you wear your love for board games on your sleeve - no matter where you are.

March 9, 2020 - LudoCherry is a new kind of geeky clothing, created to reference iconic elements of tabletop games while blending in with your everyday wardrobe. Those polka dots? They're D20s! The floral design? Look closer and you can spot the hidden meeples! 

With their subtle references, LudoCherry's shirts and skirts are perfect for game night, the office, or anything in between.

After launching on Kickstarter onMarch 3rd, LudoCherry reached their goal of $25,000 AUD in just under 8 hours, and has now surpassed $75,000 and 310% funded. 

They have also added a fifth fabric design option, inspired by the mystery and madness of Lovecraftian horror. Look closely and amongst the swirling tentacles you'll see items vital to every aspiring investigator, including magnifying glasses, books, and of course some cryptic occult symbols...

LudoCherry's clothing features include:
  • Five original fabric designs, with subtle gaming motifs inspired by your favourite games
  • Rock your favourite design as a button-up shirt, or a skirt (and yes, the skirt has pockets)!
  • Inclusive sizing range - S-4XL for the shirts, and 2-20 (US) for the skirts
  • Made from 100% cotton, for comfort and breathability
  • Ethically and sustainably manufactured
We had the opportunity to send early samples to some of our favourite personalities in the tabletop industry, and here’s what just a few of them had to say:

Jamey Stegmaier, Stonemaier Games: “My favorite tabletop game-themed clothing provides a hearty wink at those in the know while simply looking and feeling like fashionable garments to everyone else. LudoCherry accomplishes those goals perfectly.”

Rodney Smith, Watch It Played: “These patterns are a wink and a nod to the hobby, without hitting you over the head with it… and I love that!”

Mandi Hutchinson, The Dice Tower: “A skirt that has a vintage vibe and gamer flair. Who says fashion and gaming can't be comfortable and fun?”

LudoCherry's Kickstarter campaign is live until March 26, and can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/markh110/ludocherry-stylish-tabletop-shirts-and-skirts?ref=66djt9
