Heebie Jeebies is a party game of unsettling notions where you find out what really makes your friends twitch and squirm.

Heebie Jeebies is a fast flowing party game that provides hours of fun and laughter for 3-10 players . Find out what really makes your friends twitch, shiver and cringe. Be warned however, it’s a two way street and they will learn the same about you!

Here's a sample of how the games usually play.

Heebie Jeebies consists of the following:
250 Heebie Jeebie Cards.
10 Blank Heebie Jeebie Cards to add your own to the game.
40 Voting Cards (10 sets of 1-4).
Heebie Jeebie Board.
100 Point Tokens.
An Exciting Rule Sheet.

We are honored to have Aaron Williams of Nodwick and PS238 fame doing our artwork for the game.  You can run around inside his head a little more at:

www.nodwick.com

He generously has agreed to create personalized Heebie Smiley heads based on a person's likeness if they support us at that level.  They'll look something like this:

Sample Cards

We have all the game files and components ready to go to the printer. With your support we will be able to go to print in July so that we can have the game in stores by November.

How do you play?

We made the game play as simple as possible for maximum fun. During a turn a person draws four cards from the Heebie Jeebie deck. We call this person “The Subject”. That person takes each card and places it face up on the board in the slots 1-4. Each card is read aloud to the other players. We included flavor text for each card to better describe it. After all the cards are out, the other players try to determine which of the four cards drawn give the Subject the Heebie Jeebies the worst. In other words, which of those cards causes the largest negative response. Everyone then takes their voting cards which represent the 1-4 on the board and vote face down which card they think will be chosen. When all votes are in, the Subject reveals the card they find the most disturbing. If the players were correct they get a point, if they are not then they don’t. A new turn starts with the next person becoming the subject and so on. The game ends when someone reaches 10 points.

A short history of how the game was created.

About four years ago Heebie Jeebies was born out of the simple joy of making our friends cringe at various disturbing thoughts. From this button pushing we arrived at some of our favorites like “The Word Moist”, “Having an Ant Crawling Around in Your Ear” or “A Stranger Hiding in Your Back Seat”. From those first few ideas the game grew as we tapped into more and more ideas that caused people to shiver, wince and twitch.

With each play test we had of the game people asked to add more of their own Heebies, and we gladly accepted them. Each time we played the game we found two common threads. The first was that with each Heebie Jeebie card that was turned, all players internalize it as their brain painted them a vivid picture of what the card suggests. That alone would cause the other players to experience their own Heebie Jeebie while they then tried to determine if the Subject was bothered as much as they were by that same card. The second thing that happens is that, stories would burst out of people explaining why certain Heebie Jeebie cards bothered them the most. The first time we saw it happen we smiled. Then when it became common we were ecstatic. Knowing what buttons you can push on your friends is one thing, hearing the stories behind that turned out to be a true treasure. Now we’re excited to bring you the game so you can share in the same fun experiences we’ve been having.
