The Pong Gone Wrong starter pack comes with 100 beautifully-designed Sabotage Cards, delicately tucked in an easily transportable and hilariously-captioned box. The cards are printed on glossy, water resistant paper and each feature original copy and images to help convey the spirit of that unique assignment. 

The cards themselves range from the silly to the sensual, from the “let’s get loud” to the “let’s get tipsy”, but overall, they’ve each been hand-picked and stylistically vetted to ensure they’re a near-statistical certainty to make beer pong, or any similar game you love, more spirited and hilarious than you could have ever fathomed.

 

 

 

 


This game was created when Dakota (one of the founders) attended a formal networking event in NYC hosted by his employer, and much to the company’s dismay, almost no one showed. Realizing the poor attendance, a frustrated boss ordered our young hero to start cleaning up the failed attempt at an evening of glad-handing. 

As these ad hoc janitorial duties commenced, Dakota cleverly noticed some name tags about to be discarded amid a pile of papers. Something clicked. If this were an animated story, that lightbulb thingy would have appeared above his head. He quickly wrote a number of humorous commands on the sticky tags and placed them onto the bottom of everyone’s cups. Our bold protagonist then instructed, nay commanded, his mortal coworkers to perform the act written on the bottom of their cup every time they went for a sip. Glory ensued. 

The listless, soon-to-be-cancelled corporate meet and greet instantly became a night of uproarious laughter and drunk texting the interns. By sunup the next hazy morning, Dakota had Adam on the phone and they knew they were on to something.

6 months later here they are. Prototypes in hand. Artists hired. Manufacturing deals struck. All they need is you. When life gave the boys boring networking events, they made lemonade (with vodka). Now imagine what they can do with your support. Pong Gone Wrong is for all of us, to ensure our nights out on the town are as spontaneous, wild, and laughter-filled as they can be. Let’s make it happen together.  

The Pong Gone Wrong team needs your financial support to 1) purchase inventory, 2) ship, package, and handle the games with the tender love and care that all drinking games deserve, and to 3) increase brand awareness with mobile marketing. Plus, there's always the chance we've got legal fees for showing up drunk on Mark Cuban's front porch begging him to invest. But, we can assure you, your money will be in good hands, as it goes from purchase order to your beer pong table in a matter of weeks.

 

 

Risks and challenges

Our team has done our absolute best to prep this product for launch. However, as with all independent artistic endeavors, there are a few risks. We hope we’ve done literally everything we can to ensure there are no hiccups, but as many other successful Kickstarter projects have done, we only feel it right to address a few.

Time: Depending on the quantity we need (i.e. the HYPE we build), our mass order can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to be manufactured. We will gladly send a smaller, more-PDFier version to anyone who supports us over a certain level, but we do ask for patience during the shipping, handling, and making of the game processes.

Product design: Our prototypes were ordered with the highest quality of paper the designer had in house, but the cards are still only water-resistant not full on water-proof. If you bathe with them or use them to cover yourself during a wet t-shirt contest, they might show some wear and tear. Although we’d love it if this just meant you ordered another copy, we do recommend periodically wiping down the table/drying off your cards to promote longevitiy.

Delivery: We love our customers and want our game to get to you ASAP. Short of quitting our day jobs/maybe quitting our day jobs, once we have games in hand, we’ll get those sent out to you ASAP with whatever version of shipping is quickest, safest, and most cost-effective.

You: We take safety seriously. We love fun and games, but we can’t reiterate enough that this game is for conscientious consumption by parties over the legal drinking age. We are a ride-sharing, condom-wearing, limit-knowing bunch who looks out for each other, and to guarantee the success of a project like this and more down the road, we need y’all to be careful. For real. We love you.
