Ninja Cards

Ninja Cards is a HIT!!Video clips from Chicago Toy and Game fair 20122012-11-25T23:43:57.000Z

Ninja Cards is a card throwing game started by coworkers Ken Haton and Dustin Berk. They did not get an offer from any of the sharks. Last year, Heavy spoke to Haton to get a sneak peek into their appearance on the show and a inside look at their company.

The idea came from the men spending lots of time in hotels and amassing many room key cards. Haton explained, “We would spend so much time in hotel rooms that we eventually had a huge collection of hotel key cards. One night we decided to make a game throwing these cards at bottles and cans and the idea stemmed from there.”
