Hot Seat - A party game for finding out who your friends are

$9,548

264

Hot Seat is the adult party game that's all about you. What's your spirit animal? What's your safe word? What do you refuse to do unless you're drunk? Even more importantly - what do your friends think? Find out who thinks your spirit animal is a drunk alpaca... and who thinks it's an accountant. Are you ready for a round of Hot Seat?

This campaign is by the creator of The Voting Game: an adult party game launched on Kickstarter in 2015 that now sells in Target stores across the US.

As a "thank you" for believing in me (I see you, Mom), I'm giving all my Kickstarter backers $5 off the retail price as well as the opportunity to tear your friend group apart before you need to buy them holiday presents (expected delivery: November 2016).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

      

 

 

 

From the creator:

Hey Everyone! I'm Tom, a product designer currently living in San Francisco. Hot Seat is a follow-up to The Voting Game: a party game that launched on Kickstarter last summer. Thanks to your support it's now available in Target stores nationwide!

When people ask me why I spend so much of my time creating party games, my answer is simple: "I find it ALMOST as fun as playing them when they're done." I've had an absolute blast testing Hot Seat with friends and community members, and I can't wait for you to get your hands on it.

As always, I appreciate your support! The Kickstarter community is what makes these games possible, and I couldn't do it without you. Thanks!

Special thanks to:

Jennie Braunstein, Erik Davis, Rob Fatal, Grace Mendenhall, Mandy Motl, Sean O'Connor, Pete Zlebek, and everyone who helped test early versions of Hot Seat and edit this page.

Risks and challenges

Production of Hot Seat should not be a problem. We've been working with our supplier for over 3 years and have successfully shipped similar projects in the past without any issues. The game has been designed and prototypes have been built by the same supplier that will also be responsible for manufacturing your copy. The biggest risk to this project is an unforeseeable event that would delay production and/or shipping. We have intentionally left out rewards such as t-shirts and shot glasses in order to get Hot Seat to you as soon as possible. Reward types like these complicate our supply chain and leave more room for error. Back our project and you will receive a copy of our game.
