About

You ever feel like your idea was ahead of its time? Tell me about it! Back in early 2012, I had an idea for a card game that had to do with memes. I LOVED me some memes - so hilarious! So, I created the game in a small batch to distribute and tried to sell the game through my own business.

While memes were very much prevalent on the internet, the average person had ZERO idea of what memes were! Can you imagine that? Well, guess what happened? It did not sell!

So, the remaining copies sat in a dusty box in my garage for the last four years...

Fast-forward to 2017 and memes are EVERYWHERE! I figure now would be a good time to try again and see if there is a market for my game. My goals with this Kickstarter campaign are to completely redesign all of the artwork for the game (new tuck box art, custom card artwork, as well as newer - updated memes). If this version of the game is successful, I will try to create a mobile version of the game (similar to Hearthstone, Exploding Kittens, etc.).

MEMEOLOGY is similar to the popular game UNO, but instead of numbers and colors - you are matching meme captions to its picture (or vice versa). For example, the card drawn below has a picture of "Insanity Wolf". The common format for an "Insanity Wolf" meme is something violently outragous, such as: "Baby on board sign? Target Acquired". So those two cards can be matched. You could also match the caption of the card drawn below with the "Vengeance Dad" meme picture on your turn.

 **Images above are from the legacy version of the game, not the remaster**

 

 

Risks and challenges

Obviously, when it comes to memes, there is a reliance on copyrighted material to get the joke across. With the MEMEOLOGY (2017) remaster, I will need to get proper licencing rights for any copyrighted material I decide to use in the commercial version of the game OR I need to make the meme design into a "fair use" image.
