Shark Tank Ninja Cards Update

- Result: No deal
- Sharks: None
Ken and Dustin rolled and jumped into the tank, showing off their best ninja moves. They then demonstrated their game, Ninja Cards, before inviting Robert Herjavec and Kevin O’Leary to try it out too. With different types of throws, a ninja card would stick into the specially made game board. The sharks loved the concept.
The first topic of discussion was sales. Awkwardly, Ken and Dustin told the sharks that they’d only sold 100 units. They had signed an exclusive licensing contract with a company that couldn’t source the design material in China, so that deal fell through.
The sharks still had a few concerns about the company. Mark Cuban believed that the concerns for him specifically were too much to overcome to make an investment, so he dropped out completely. Robert agreed with Mark and also decided to drop out without making an offer.
Lori Greiner and Daymond John liked the product, but not enough to make an offer. They both went out. Kevin ultimately decided to drop out without making an offer, forcing Ken and Dustin to leave without a deal. What was next for this company? Keep reading our Ninja Cards update to find out!
Research for our Ninja Cards update revealed some mixed news for the company. Ninja Cards can still be purchased, but Ken and Dustin apparently parted ways in 2018, leaving the brand with new ownership that has kept it going.
While the new brand of Ninja Card has growing sales, the company is only estimated to generate around $100,000 in revenue per year. Products are available to purchase on the Ninja Cards website.
