About this project

Hi there,

I’m Carey Thompson and this is my wife Angel…. After all our research, we will be revamping our product and will be back on Kickstarter in less then a year.  Please follow us on www.facebook.com/ForbiddenGame or on twitter @Game_Forbidden for updates, and info on when we will relaunch our kickstarter. Thank you for all your support.

We are the creators of Forbidden.

                             Warning before you continue:

We are both huge gamers and have loved the growth of the more mature party game industry.  While we love our friends, we also love to see them blush and when it comes to gaming the more uncomfortable they are the more we laugh, so we wanted to create a game with that in mind. 

This game is by no means safe for work, and we wouldn’t recommend it for after Christmas dinner, unless your family is as dysfunctional as ours.  Most of the cards contain at least some adult content with a large majority requiring the person giving clues to wash out their mouth with soap.

                            HOW IT WORKS

All players split into teams and in each round one player will try to get his team to guess the target word, without using any of the Forbidden words listed on the card.  If the player can get their teammates to guess the target word, they score a point and move on to the next card, the object is to score as many points as possible in the time allowed.  However, if the player messes up and uses a Forbidden word or says any part of the target word then the card and the point go to the other team.  Additionally, if you are caught using any of the Forbidden words then you must draw a Forbidden card, these can be beneficial, but usually they are an additional obstacle that you must deal with on your next turn. 

                                        

                  Here is an example of some of our Forbidden Cards

We also have four types of special cards included in the deck- 

  • Skip- Allows you to skip past a difficult card without a penalty or without the other team getting a point.
  • Steal- This card allows your team to jump in for a round and try to guess the target words while the other team gives clues.  Any words that you guess first will score a point for your team.
  • F@*K You- Use this card to pass the most challenging cards to the other team, they must start their turn with that card.
  • Wild- This card works as any one of the other cards, your choice!

 

That’s it, that’s all you need to know to play the game, simple right?  However every game is unique based on who you play with and with a massive deck of Forbidden cards to play through you should expect countless hours of laughing at your friends. 

We certainly hope that you’ll support our campaign so that you can join in the fun.

Forbidden- A mature party game, for immature people

 

Risks and challenges

What are the risks and challenges.... well we had NO IDEA how much went into this when we started or we would have just kept our heads down and kept ordering new games to add to our collection.

We honestly thought that this project would launch last August, but it has taken us nearly seven additional months to line up manufactures that can produce the quality we want for our supporters at a reasonable cost, we have had to negotiate shipping rates to keep costs from spiraling out of control and all of the other ins and out that go along with trying to be prepared for a successful launch.

We understand that there are always hiccups in any startup, but we are working diligently to insure that we can provide every supporter with the best quality product in the fastest possible turnaround time. We have spent our lives in sales and customer service, we have spent countless hours researching the best methods to get this product into our backers hands and wouldn't have launched if we didn't believe we were ready to come to market.

We are happy to participate in the kicking it forward program which puts 5% of the money raised in this campaign back into helping other kickstarter projects reach their dreams and goals. http://kickingitforward.org
