About

Love hidden camera shows? How about prank videos? Me too! But why should the actors and Youtube stars get to have all the fun?! With Cringe, you don't need any fancy cameras, expensive sound equipment, or a crew of 60. All you need is your friends, some liquid courage, and Cringe the Game of Awkward Situations.

Will you come up with a clever reason? Or just be blunt?
Will you come up with a clever reason? Or just be blunt?

Cringe the Game is all about getting together with your friends and laughing as you embarrass each other in front of strangers. Cringe is perfect for bars, restaurants, festivals, and even sporting events.

It's a simple game but wildly fun, and I'm so excited to share #cringethegame with all of you. Just remember, the best pranks are those that embarrass yourself, NOT the stranger!

A single deck is fairly expensive to make because I wanted to have a ton of silly challenges for hours and hours of laughter and fun. I am raising funds so I can produce inventory in bulk amounts so that way I can make this game as cheap as possible for you, because I know that you will love it!. 

A great prank is one that embarrasses yourself, not the stranger!

Cringe can make any night out way more fun! How often do friends get together for a night out on the town, only to be stuck on their phones all night taking selfies and drunk texting former lovers. Cringe is a great way to get everyone talking, laughing, and having fun again. And it's a great ice breaker for meeting new people.

Technically, this challenge is not vulgar. And he did it so well!

So please join me and let's make Cringe the Game the next big party game!


Stretch Goals:

-If this campaign reaches $50,000 five new challenge cards will be added to all decks.

-If this campaign reaches $75,000 five new punishment cards will be added to all decks.

-If this campaign reaches $100,000 ten new punishment cards and ten new challenge cards will be added to all decks.

Risks and challenges

My main challenge with Cringe is getting the price as low as possible for the consumer. Without bulk pricing from my manufacturer, and because I wanted to include over 80 fun challenges and over 20 hilarious punishment and reward cards, a single deck would cost $23 just to make. And that's before taxes, shipping, labor, and any profit. I have started this dream with very low funds, and that is why I am starting this crowdfunding campaign. If I reach my goal, I will be able to fulfill all orders in a short period of time and purchase more inventory with much cheaper bulk pricing. This way I will be able to continue making and selling this game. And that is my goal. I want everyone to be able to enjoy this game as much as my friends and I enjoy it.
