How We Got Started

My name is Chris Nichols the inventor of the Card Caddy. When my step-son was around 5 years old, he was obsessed with Uno. I grew up playing card games of all sorts with my grandmother and wanted to foster that same love of cards with him. We carried around a couple of decks of cards, bound with rubber bands, stuffed back into the box, or just scattered in the bottom of a my wife's purse.  When it came time to play - often somewhere without a level, solid surface for the draw and discard piles - the stacks of cards fell over, blew away or slid down into the crevice of the car seat.

For Christmas that year, I made the original version of the Card Caddy in my workshop out of scrap wood.  It was bulky and clunky, but it was a big hit and solved my frustrations.  After a couple of iterations, I've put together an improved version and would like to the share the idea with card lovers everywhere. 

Whether you're a harried parent who wants a mobile entertainment option other than "a device", a hardcore Trading Card Gamer who has a lot invested in your deck, or just someone who likes to have a deck of cards handy for a game-on-the-go, the Card Caddy is for you.
