Ninja Cards is a card-throwing dart game invented by co-workers Ken Haton and Dustin Berk. What started out as a way to pass time turned into a business. They pitched Ninja Cards on Shark Tank in October 2014. They went into the Tank memorably wearing head-to-toe black Ninja costumes. The Ninja guys didn’t get an investment on Shark Tank but three years later, Haton and Berk dusted off their ninja costumes and pitched Ninja Cards again on The Toy Box in 2017. They made it to the finals but the Mattel deal (the top Toy Box prize) went to Hydroshield Water Dodger.
Since Shark Tank, Ninja Cards has transformed their prototype from a foam board to “an unbreakable elite card throwing game.” See links above. Ninja Berk has also developed a new educational game, Catch and Learn ($15 at link above), which teaches math, spelling grammar, shapes and colors while kids go fishing (with dry-erase fish).
