Is a card game with a difference! It's a game of randomly generated phrases with an unexpected twist that takes it to the next level of absurdity making for an evening of fun, friends, and bouts of uncontrollable laughter.
What began as family game nights has now lead us to create and develop our own hilarious game adaptations. We are especially excited for this project launch. We appreciate all the support we have received from family, friends and social media leading into the start of our campaign. Especially all those who liked and shared our facebook page around the world. We look forward to you joining us on the journey ahead and paying back the support with Gobby game rewards.
All players grab a Gobby (these are the mouth pieces inside your game box). You will need the Gobby for when it is your turn. There are two decks of cards in the game. The first deck will consist of phrase start cards, while the second deck contains the phrase end cards. Players take turns selecting one card from each deck and reading out the complete phrases while wearing their Gobby. Everyone else then attempts to guess what the hell they are trying to say.
The game becomes even more hilarious when you or another player wins one of the bonus Gobby action cards! The 'Gobby Gulp' and 'Gobstopper' cards scattered throughout the deck ensures there will never be a dull moment!
So enjoy getting up close and personal with each others teeth and laughing hysterically at your friends whilst they attempt some of those impossibly hard words.
So what comes in the game?
Each Gobby game comes complete with:
- 20 Gobbys (Mouth pieces)
- 2 x 50 card decks of start and end phrase cards, totaling 2,500 phrase combinations.
- A 1 minute timer
- Instruction manual
- All housed in the big white Gobby box.
The rude and crude Adults only red pack includes 2 additional 50 card phrase decks. These can be used by themselves for 2,500 phrase combinations, or together with the original Gobby phrase decks for a total of 10,000 phrase combinations!
What if I want to buy more than one game?
No problem. We have bulk pricing and discounts available for any number of games that you wish to receive. So feel free to stock up for the holidays for plenty of laughs with family and friends. For pricing and combined shipping please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Are the Gobby mouth pieces re-usable?
Absolutely. We are strong advocators for recycling. All Gobbys are made to be reused, simply wash with warm soapy water or wash in the top rack of your dishwasher. The Gobby mouth pieces can then be boiled in water to ensure they are germ-free and ready for more Gobby games.
What about shipping?
Argh, We hate shipping. We wish we could personally come and visit each one of our supporters and thank every one of you over a short black or a tall ale, but unfortunately our budget wouldn't cope. Maybe one day. In the mean time these little Gobby game beauty's will need to be flown to you for a small additional cost which will be made available to you during checkout.

Risks and challenges
As this is our first ever Kickstarter campaign, we see this as our biggest challenge. That being said, all designing, prototyping and testing of our game has already been completed.
In order for us to keep costs down to bring you a hilarious game at a reasonable price, and without sacrificing quality, we have opted to go with an overseas manufacturer. This in itself can lead to unforeseen circumstances, however we at Four Quarter Productions are confident we have successfully minimised any risks. We've achieved this through our level of interaction with each manufacturer, and the high level of communication with our suppliers. Meaning, should any challenges arise, they can be dealt with promptly and openly. We promise to be completely transparent with all of our backers and keep you updated about anything and everything that may come up.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
