New Video! How to play Kalimaat

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,

Since a lot of people ask me How to play Kalimaat, I figured I just post the animation video up.

I've been taking the game around with me during my travels, and it has been pretty cool watching people's reaction while they've played it. Honestly, I enjoying playing it with people much more than I do selling it. I guess that's why I never reprinted my first game Mecca to Medina. Although we sold thousands of them and we got about 400 order requests afterwords. I never reprinted it. Till this day, I still get phone call orders for it, and each time, I just tell them that its sold out. I much rather make new items rather than just sold old ones. My Muslim friends who deal with business think I'm crazy lol. I told on the bright side my products become like collector items. I use to sell Ummah Films shirts...done...then Ummah Films DVD...done. Mecca to Medina game...done. Now Kalimaat and eventually, I'll be done. Allah Alim.

I started selling Kalimaat a few days ago and Alhamduillah over 700 games are already gone. I hope once people play the game they bought, they'll realize that the game in genuinely very fun. When I made the game, I wasn't trying to compete with many of the dull Muslim games out there but rather I wanted to raise the bar, and compete with the mainstream games. I tried to do that with not just the quality of the packaging but the quality of the game itself. I wanted to make something that wouldn't sit on the shelf but rather would be used. I got one email back already from someone who got the game early (about two weeks ago) and he said they played the game for 8 days straight haha. Anyways, I think its time for Muslims to start making quality products that people will want and more importantly to handle the business side of things Islamically.

Sometimes people ask me what is the "secret". I'm like there is no secret. Just work hard and make things the best you can. Either your product will be "sold" or "bought". If your product is junk, then it will have to be "sold" to the people but if you product is great, then people will buy it. Maybe some people bought the game cuz they thought it sounded good. Maybe others bought it cuz they liked similar games. Maybe some people bought it cuz I made it. Allah Alim. That isn't important. What is important is that when these people play this game with their friends....that is when people don't care about that stuff but rather they care about how good the game is. Once they realize that game is really fun, then they will come back and get their own Kalimaat InshAllah and the only way for me to do that is by making someone that is solid InshAllah. By the way, I can not take ANY credit for ANY of the success of the projects that I have been fortunate enough to work on. As a reminder to myself and everyone reading my blog, all success is because Allah (swt) wills it. All we can do it put in the effort and make du'ah that Allah (swt) brings us to what is good and takes us away from what is bad.

jazakAllah khair for everyone's support.

your brother in Islam,

That was a cool animation Bro. Congrats on the early success! To be honest I'm still debating whether to get the game, or rather, life is just a little crazy for me right now, so I guess I'm just being lazy, but either way, I hope it goes on to become successful insha'Allah. Best wishes.

Also what is the minimum number of people you can play with?

Jazakhallah

Yes, the game is shipped worldwide. You can get it from babaaligames.com

The minimum number of players needed is 4. You basically play in two teams of two.

I'm also planning on putting a FAQs page together for Kalimaat
