QuickWits: A Party Card Game

$8,268

We need your help to make this game a reality!

Quotes:

Significantly improved my IQ and the longevity of my lovemaking abilities ~ Evan Jaroslow

Laughed so hard my jaw hurt for the rest of the night ~ Evan Jaroslow

The game made me reevaluate who I am as a person ~ Evan Jaroslow's Girlfriend.

The game is easy enough for a baby to understand though they would probably be really bad at playing the game. We recommend 17 and up.

 Step 1. Grab 3 or more friends 

Step 2: The game has 6 distinct symbols (shown above). In a clockwise fashion, people draw one card at a time from the QuickWits pile until two people draw a card with the same symbol. We call this a match. In the example below, player 1 and player 3 match with the male symbol.

Step 3: If player 3 yells a correct word “Hustler” before player 1 shouts “Cheech and Chong”, then Player 3 gets to move Player 1's card to his/her winning pile.

Step 4: But wait! Now that this card is gone, another match has appeared between player 4 and player 1. Now player 4 must shout “American Pie” before player 1 hollers “Herpes”. Keep this process going until there are no matches. Players then continue to draw cards in a clockwise fashion.

Step 5: After all cards have been dealt the player with most cards in his/her pile wins.

Once a word has been said It can no longer be repeated during the game. 

Spice it up: To add an extra kick we also added three types of wild cards 

Drinking rules (optional): 

Grab a beverage of your choice and get twice as serious (at your own risk). 

1.) Loser of the match takes a sip.

2.) Winner of the mystery card gives a drink (in sips/seconds/gulps).

3.) Loser of the battle drinks (in sips/seconds/gulps) the wagered number of cards. 

4.) Loser of the game drinks the difference (in sips/seconds/gulps) between the number of cards in winner pile and loser pile. 

5.) Win the game 2 times and you get to make a rule that lasts the remainder of the night

What does it come with? 

The game will show up in retail packaging before the holiday season. The cards are 2’’x 3.5’’, made from premium card stock, professionally printed and digitally cut. 

In The Box: 126 QW cards, 12 link cards, 6 Mystery Cards, 6 Battle, and detailed instructions. All in Retail Packaging

How far along are you?  

We spent countless hours slaving over every aspect from game play to card design and we think we finally got it right. We recently completed a short run of cards with a local card manufacturer and have a complete game ready for production. 

We have also hand picked our manufacturing partner to make the version of QuickWits that will arrive at your doorstep. They have a 30 year clean and reliable track record. This is where we need your help. There is a large upfront cost of $8000 needed to start production. We promise to give the manufacturer the OK to start production the second (or maybe hour) we reach this funding level.

Risks and challenges

*****Side effects may occur*******
-Decline in cardiovascular health, self-esteem, and/or ability to think properly.
-Had way too much fun disease.
-Other afflictions like sore ribs from laughter to friendships broken over the game have occurred.

But seriously.....we have taken all necessary steps to make sure that you receive a professional quality game at your doorstep by the holidays. The game-play has been meticulously tested and the design work was carefully thought through. We partnered with and vetted a reliable card manufacturer that can make up to 50,000 units/day. We already received a short sample run of units from this manufacturer and the cards look great! Finally, we selected a local fulfillment service to make sure that your orders get to you in a quick and efficient manner. If for some reason things go awry, we promise to frequently post updates to keep you in the loop.

Thanks in advance for believing in us and supporting QuickWits. With your help QuickWits will bring laughter to many peoples homes. It just may also turn your boring weekend parties into an activity people actually enjoy.
