West Virginia native Richie Ray combines his professional skills with personal humor, creating the hilarious new trading card game Oh Crap!
As lead designer for That Banner Guy, he creates custom designs and prints items for professional clients nationwide. His company, specializing in ready made and custom novelty items, was among the top 10% of Etsy sellers in 2020, only two years after its founding.
The idea for Oh Crap! flourished from his son’s love of trading card games and a shared love of scatological humor with his wife. Ray committed to creating a game that is both fun and funny for all ages, with dynamic play that’s easy to learn. After partnering with friend and artist Gavin McDonald, he quickly realized the cards also serve as a collectible novelty due to the originality of the artwork and humor.
