While some kids are buried in their smart phones, one Nashville teen is going old-school.

"This is the game I created when I was going into fifth grade," said Jackson Lefler. 

A few years back, Lefler said he was feeling bored.

"So I took a bunch of ideas from games that I had played before," he said. 

With the help of his friends, family and a successful Kickstarter campaign -- BLDR was born.

BLDR is a fast-paced card game where players race to see who can build a structure like an airport, museum, sky scraper or a bridge.

Now, 13-year-old Lefler said BLDR is a game of both strategy and luck and said he feels lucky to see his idea turned real -- built from the ground up. 

"It feels awesome. I never thought it would get this far," he said. 

The game is available locally at Brilliant Sky or on Amazon. Click here for more information.
