Woot! WE DID IT! Thank you and check out what else we can unlock!

pledge, share, repeat!

Or if you're new here... 

CoolCats & AssHats is a silly new party game that will turn your average pre-game into a ridiculous night to remember. Unlike the majority of drinking games, CoolCats and AssHats never gets old because stuff actually happens. Every round is completely random, immature, inappropriate, and sometimes shame inducing...

Your goal is to guess what your friends like and dislike.  If you're right, good things happen. But if you're wrong, there's a strong chance everyone else will be laughing at your expense.

Here's how it works:

Dude/tte #1 lays 5 "Subject Cards" face up for everyone to see...

Everyone guesses if Dude/tte #1 likes or dislikes each Subject card.

You can also use checkmarks, X's, or up and down arrows. Your call.
You can also use checkmarks, X's, or up and down arrows. Your call.

Dude/tte #1 then tells everyone if they like or dislike each card. While funny stories are shared, scores are tallied. Person with the most correct guesses wins and least correct loses.

If there's a tie for the most correct or least correct guesses, a "Tiebreaker Card" is drawn to determine the winner or loser (aka CoolCat or AssHat).

Here's a taste of some other Tiebreaker cards...

The person with the most correct guesses draws a "CoolCat Card", reads it aloud to the group, and does what it says...

Another short interlude for some more CoolCat card examples...

After the CoolCat goes, the person with the least correct guesses draws an AssHat card and does what it says...

A few more AssHat card examples...

After the round is over, fill it up again. Next up is the person to the left of Dude/ette #1.

Here's a 3D rendering of our box and here's what comes inside it: (hehe...comes inside it)

  • Subject Cards: 300 cards 
  • CoolCat Cards: 50 cards 
  • AssHat Cards: 50 cards 
  • Tiebreaker Cards: 75 cards 
  • Scorecards: 100 scoresheets

And if you really like to party, meet the...

The EXTREME NSFW booster pack is a perfect addition for when you really want to dial up the pre-game, or for when you're just really drunk at the end of night and are willing to do anything.

NSFW CoolCat Card Examples:

NSFW AssHat Card Examples:

NSFW Tiebreaker Card Examples:

NSFW Subject Card Examples:

The booster pack includes 50 BONUS Cards:

  • 20 EXTREMELY NSFW Subject Cards 
  • 10 EXTREMELY NSFW Tiebreaker Cards 
  • 10 EXTREMELY NSFW CoolCat Cards 
  • 10 EXTREMELY NSFW AssHat Cards

You're in? Sweet, check out what each pledge level entitles you to...

All backers will receive a "Print N' Play" version of the game shortly after the campaign ends just in case you really really really need to play it immediately :)

Note: This game is all about obliterating boundaries of personal space and offensiveness, but if your Subject/CoolCat/AssHat card is total horse piss, we reserve the right to work with you to write a better card.

Domestic shipping is $2 extra. International shipping is $15 extra (turns out, it's really expensive).

But for real, let's just hear from the people!

During the last 6 months, we've given this game to everyone we know. Over 250 games have been played, and to be honest, not one person said it wasn't awesome. Here's a taste of the interweb feedback...

  • "We had a blast playing it. Can't wait to be able to purchase it. Being teased with the game then taken away is just cruel! Haha." -Tyler Campbell
  • "...everyone loved the game. The crowds that I introduced it to typically play Cards against Humanity, and everyone felt this was a better game overall (not to detract from CaH). It felt like this game would not get stale after many times playing it." -Adam Pattison
  • "I just have to tell you that everyone absolutely loves your game. We played it with our staff on Christmas Eve. Then I took it to my family party. Everyone wants to know when your kickstarter begins so they can get it. So keep us updated! Thanks for letting us play, it is SO much fun!" -Nicole Enright

 Yaaaaa.....soooooooo

  • First, it's fucking hilarious; you and your friends' lives will be more fun with this game in it.
  • Second, it's really DIFFERENT from every other drinking/party game we've ever seen or played. The Tiebreaker, CoolCat, and AssHat cards introduce an element of silly/random action that elevates this game from awesome to insanely awesome. 
  • Third, you get a LOT of cards. 475 CARDS to be exact. More cards means more time playing before you ever sniff boredom.
  • Fourth, there are 5 totally different ways to play this game depending on your attention span at the time. Check it out: 

Version #1

"The Works" - Play exactly as you see it described above.

Version #2

The "Foreplay is Fun" Version - Play with Tiebreaker and CoolCat/AssHat cards only. Pick a buddy and draw a Tiebreaker card. The winner of the Tiebreaker draws a CoolCat card and the loser draws an AssHat card.

Version #3

The "Icy Hot Lube" Version - Play with CoolCat/AssHat cards only. Take both decks and shuffle them together. One at a time, go around the room, draw a card, and complete the task. Pray you pick a CoolCat card.

Version #4

The "Pull Out Method" Version - Play with Subject cards only. Use them to break the ice, or to play Pictionary, Charades, or some other stupid game.

Version #5

The "Parent Play" Version - Same as full version, but with fewer cards since you’ll have taken out the ones that offend old people.

5 different games for 5 different occasions all packed into the same sexy box. Speaking of sexy...

We are basically just two guys, Dave and Dan.

Dan can throw a 68 MPH fastball and Dave has never wet the bed.  I know, impressive.

We met when we both started working for a Big Tobacco company in the summer of 2007. We became friends and in 2011 our paths temporarily parted when we both moved on from pushing cigs.

Dan moved to New Jersey and Dave moved to Salt Lake City. About a year later, Dan called Dave about a party game concept he was toying around with. Dave was intrigued and ended up getting hooked.

The idea had all the makings of a classic. It was personally relevant to anyone playing, didn't require the players to be naturally funny for the game to be funny, contained all sorts of fun games within the game, and involved eating a spoonful of mayonnaise. Yum.

For the next 3 years, we kept building versions of the game only to tear down the pieces we didn't like so we could rebuild again. After a half dozen iterations, and lots of hangovers, we thought we had a great game, so...

We spent almost all of 2015 shipping this game around the country and globe (thanks for playing Mark in Vancouver) to anyone who would play. And somewhat amazingly, it wasn't just us; everyone loved the hell out of this game.

So that's why we're here. We wanna make this sucker real and we need your help.

Risks and challenges

We don't anticipate many issues as this is a pretty straightforward game to produce, but no point pulling punches with our supporters; we are first time game developers. We've never ordered thousands of anything. But we have done our homework. We've spoken with numerous card producers here and abroad. Our chosen manufacturer has produced many other great card games that are on the market today. And delivery wise, Amazon will be handling that, so no worries there.

There could be delays as we work through final art and packaging with the manufacturer, but we've built those assumptions into our current timeline. We didn't incorporate complicated reward tiers, and that was intentional. Our sole focus is to get your game into your hands as soon as possible so you can become a CoolCats & AssHats fan for life.
