Dart Flipcards Announces New Name, New Game at 26th National
Dino Frisella, president of James Kat Inc., who produced this year's most novel and successful
new trading card, Gemstone Treasures, is pleased to make the following announcement. The company
has acquired the Dart Flipcards name. The company name change from James Kat, Inc. to Dart Flipcards
World will become effective July 1st, 2005. Along with this acquisition, the company has also
purchased Dart’s trade marks, copyrights and all intellectual properties. The new name will
better reflect the diverse range of trading card related products the company plans to produce.
This year's National Sports Collectors Convention will witness the company launch its first new
product under the Dart Flipcards World banner. What could be better than a new card flipping game
with a twist? It is aptly titled, Flipzz. Plans for this year's National include a
convention-long card flipping tournament where $10,000.00 in actual prize money will be given away
to the winners. A winner will be awarded a prize every hour that the 26th National is open - that’s
28 hours of prizes. There will be special Flipzz tournaments at many of this year's collectibles
convention venues. A special dealers tournament has been developed where the top prize is a free
booth at next year's National Convention in Anaheim, California.
Each of the hourly Flipzz tournament winners will win $100.00, and be invited back for the Saturday,
July 30th High-Noon Flipzz National Championship. First prize in this year's National
championship is $2,500.00 with the second place winner receiving $1,000.00, and third place, $500.00.
According to Dart Flipcards World president, Dino Frisella, "We’ve refined an old school yard game,
and by updating and giving the new game structure, we’ve once again turned trading cards into a functional
toy. This year's Dart Flipcards World booth promises to sparkle with Gemstone Treasures and deliver
excitement with the new Flipzz game."
Be sure to visit the Dart Flipcards World booth and challenge them to a game of Knockdowns!
