Sounds Great, but What the Heck is Fungo Golf?

For those of you sitting their wondering what in the world is Fungo Golf? Pay close attention, I’m going to give you a crash course in Fungo 101:

Basically Fungo Golf is a mix up of both golf and baseball. It’s played with the same structure as Golf, except this game is played on a baseball field, with a Fungo bat, and a baseball. Just like when you play golf, the object is to hit your ball into a hole with as few swings as possible. Well, in Fungo golf it’s the same idea, but instead of hitting your ball with a club into a hole you have to hit your ball off of certain targets on the field with a fungo bat. Many baseball players who’ve had to sit through rain delays or has had time between double headers know exactly what Fungo golf is all about.

Lets say hole #1 would be a sign on the outfield fence. The way you Tee off in this game is a little different than in traditional golf. In Fungo golf you have your bat in one hand, ball in the other and all you do is simply toss the ball up to yourself and swing away. Now from that point as long as you are close enough to the target, in this case the sign on the outfield fence. You have to “Putt” your ball just like in golf and try to hit your target.

 Score is kept the same way as you would keep it in golf. So every time you swing and hit your ball its considered a stroke, and at the end of the game the player with the least amount of strokes wins the game. There are many different variations of how people play it, but this is how we do it!

 Check Out What We’ve Added Since The Launch! 



Here’s our Players Bench, when the guys aren’t on the field this is where you’ll find them

Here We Have Our Player Bio Cards. These cards give you the opportunity to really get to know each player


Once you’ve selected your player its then off to the Locker room. This is where you get to Customize your Character

Here we have our “Power Up” screen. Power ups are weapons you could use against your opponents to really throw them off their game!

By earning coins in each game you can unlock some really cool Power ups!

 Here’s a quick glimpse of just a few Power ups in action!

There’s that pesky Gopher again!




Why come to Indiegogo?

Like I said before, I am a business guy, that’s what I went to school for. Although I have a very creative mind, drawing and programming really aren’t my strong suit. As of right now all of the work that has been done has been made “work-for-hire” and contracted out professionally.
As you scroll down you will see hiring a designer and programmer to come up with the designs of new fields, characters, and actually taking that artwork and bringing it to life does not come cheap. And all of the start up funds I had, have all dried up. Which is why we need your help to continue development and really take this game to the next level!

OK Fair Enough, Lets Get Down to Business. Where’s the money going?

Let me break it down into more detail so you know exactly where every dollar will be spent

  • $20,000 for IOS Development cost                                                                                      This includes development costs on both the Iphone and Ipad
  • $7,500 for new fields (Cost to design and program into the game)                                       My goal is to get at least 5 new fields  ($1,500 per new field)                                        $1,500 x 5 = $7,500
  • $7,500 for new characters (Cost to design and program into the game)                               My goal is to get at least 10 new characters ($750 per new character)                            $750 x 10 = $7,500
  • $4,000 for new power ups and new all new gear for player customization                         (This means new hats, shirts, pants, hair styles, shoes, and new weapons)
  • $1,500 Chat Room in between innings where users can interact and see one another
  • $7,500 for our initial marketing and promotion
  • $2,000 for Indigogo’s 4% processing fee

What if we exceed our goal, where is that money going to go?

Any additional funds we receive will be used to create more fields, characters, power ups, and design some awesome new gear the players can wear.
Some thing else I would like to do is donate 10% of all money raised after meeting our goal to an organization called Child’s Play. Child’s Play is a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games through a network of over 70 hospitals worldwide.
Child’s Play works in two ways - with the help of the hospital staff, they set up gift wish lists full of video games, toys, books, and other fun stuff for kids. With the help of donations they also purchase new  consoles, peripherals, and games for hospitals and therapy facilities. These donations allow children to interact with their peers, friends, and family, and  provide an awesome distraction from an otherwise unpleasant experience. We both share a similar mission and it would really mean a lot to me, to be able to help in some way.

More Q & A

What If We Don’t Hit Our Goal?

We are setting up what’s called a “Flexible Funding campaign”. Meaning that if we do not meet our $50,000 goal, we still take in all of your contributions, the only thing is that Indigogo will tax us 9% instead of a 4% fee.

Will You Still Deliver On Our Rewards?

Yes! Everything I have promised you guys will be delivered and I will try my very best to have it out in the time I have estimated.

How Do You Plan To Recruit These Everyday Heros To Be Part Of The Game?

Throughout my life I have made many connections - many of whom I plan to reach out to, to help open some doors to get my story out their to the people that can make a difference. I also plan to reach out to non-profit organizations and health care facilities with a passion similar to mine to help take this from an idea to a reality.

Will The Game Be Free or Paid?

Fungo Golf will always be Free! Although, there will be some In-app purchases in which users will have to pay for. Including new fields, and some bonus characters.

Can I Claim More Than One Perk?

Yes of course! If you want to help out with more then one contribution, you are more than welcome to do so. All you do is select the other perk you want, and the process is all the same!

How Do I Know If My Contribution was Successful?

If your contribution is successful, an automatic confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provided during the contribution process.
Please note that your credit card or PayPal account will be charged the contribution amount immediately if your transaction was successful, not at the end of the campaign. If you paid via PayPal, you will receive another confirmation email from PayPal, in additional to the confirmation email you’ll receive from Indiegogo.

Any successful contributions will also be recorded on your individual Indiegogo account. If you did not have an Indiegogo account when you made your contribution, an Indiegogo account was created for you after you submitted your email address during the contribution process. If you do not remember your password, or if you did not have a password set for you when you contributed to the campaign, click here to have a new temporary password sent to you: Be sure to use the email address that you used when you first contributed.


There is always a possibility that the game will be delayed due to technical problems, unforeseen circumstances or us wanting to polish the game more - but don’t worry, I will dedicate every bone in my body to work on Fungo Golf so that you  will get to play the game as soon as possible.

Another risk is getting the rewards to you guys in the time I have estimated delivery. Depending on the amount of players and fields I have to develop and get into the game that could delay the process just a little bit, but don’t worry I promise every reward will be delivered one way or the other!

I also have to manage the risk associated with recruiting the heroes that these children playing the game will want to interact with. But I have a plan to reach out to a wide range of current non-profit organizations, business organizations, local unions and other organizations to recruit a diverse set of everyday heroes and celebrities.
