Miskatonic School for Boys. The Reverse Deduction Game.

$28,518

MSfB is an all-new Lovecraft themed reverse deduction game where YOU get to play the Beasts for a change!

This all-new game by designer Garrett Herdter takes place at a boarding school for boys. Unknown to the boys attending, the school secretly doubles as a training ground for dark beings from other dimensions (you and your friends).

The game takes place during the final 3-day test in the “Human Behavior” course. Each day of the test starts with the Lovecraftian horrors (players) in control of random human students from the school. Each horror uses deduction and deception to figure out which student they are in possession of (no mirrors in the classroom) before the other members of the class.

The game has been fully vetted over the last 19 months by hundreds of players at multiple World Board Game Championships, Unpub events, game nights, and blind tests. (You may have heard about it already under it's playtest name "Delirium" on podcasts like Dice Hate Me.) 

RETAILERS: If you would like to get on on the MSfB Kickstarter fun, contact us directly at info@funto11.com and we can make sure you get your games shipped directly to your store at the same time we ship the backers their product!

Note: MSfB is not an expansion to Fun to 11's best selling Miskatonic School for Girls game, it is a totally new game that creates totally different experiences.

"I've played many prototypes, but few games have ensnared me as quickly as Garrett's. I was giddy the entire time I played. After just one round, I knew that I was playing something special, and that I had to add it to my collection." - Greg Miller, Baked Fresh Daily Games

"I first played this game at an Unpub event, and I was surprised to have found a deduction game that actually felt fresh. The goofy Miskatonic School theme is not only a great match for the weight of the game, but also the source of a lot of laughs." Mike Mullins, Designer Bottom of the 9th, solo designer of just about everything

“Miskatnoic School for Boys delivers great moments as it’s the questions themselves, and other player’s reactions to them, that provide the most fun. Miskatnoic School for Boys is a game I look forward to owning and playing multiple times with my game group!” - Tox, Crits Happen

"My favorite part of this game is trying to get into the heads of the other players. Trying to make them think you're lying when you're not and vice versa. It's like poker, but you don't know who you are." - Robert Hoose, DoodleHoose

"I offered to publish MSfB 3 minutes into my first game. In my 22 years in the industry, I've never done that before. It's that much fun." - Luke Peterschmidt, Fun to 11

"Playing MSfB was fun and engaging, clever and hilarious. It is suited for casual play, but it has the depth and challenge to hold the attention of serious gamers." - Geoff Owens, Game Designer

"MSfB is an interesting twist on the hidden identity genre of games. It's a fun, fast paced game with lots of replayability." - Mat Sejas

If we hit $29,011 we will be adding Player Monster Cards to the game. These cards give each player a public personality with special abilities for the game. These might be things like challenging answers for a lower cost, the ability to change out disposition cards, extra starting grade points and more. 

Be the Developer

In addition to the Monster cards we've designed, we’ll also be adding a set of these cards with blank text/numbers so you can make custom abilities for your game. At some point, we’ll make a call for the best/most fun abilities the community has come up with and we’ll include them in a future expansion.

All MSfB EU product will be shipped from inside the EU. We will be covering all the duties and taxes for our EU backers.

US backers, check out these great bundles, including one of the only ways to pick up the Epic PvP: Fantasy "Awesome Box." Unfortunately, these bundles are only available to US backers as that's where the warehouse is that is the home to the other product  (it would cost a fortune in Import fees and shipping for our non-US backers). All of these bundles will come with all the unlocked MSfB stretch goals.

Fun to 11 is a small group of gaming friends with decades of professional tabletop industry experience. We've delivered a string of successful Kickstarted games so you can trust us to deliver and to deliver on time. Of our first eight Kickstarters, one started shipping just 1 week late, five shipped on time, and two shipped early.

"Fun to 11 has run some of the most efficient game Kickstarters I have seen, and I have backed nearly 50 projects. They excel in communication, and keep you updated every step of the way." - Val Cassette, another happy Fun to 11 backer

If you have any questions for us about MSfB (or anything really), definitely contact us and we'll do our best to get right back to you.

Risks and challenges

The risks here are minimal. Fun to 11 has completed a ton of table top game Kickstarters: one shipped a week late and the rest shipping on-time or early. Of course, someone very important to the product might get hit by a bus and there is always a risk of bad weather delaying transport, but we're highly confident we'll add this to our list of professionally produced and delivered product.
