About this project

 Psychiatrist the Game is a hilarious, new spin on charades. The game is played in a group, and combines actions, situations, personalities and clever wordplay. Like charades, the group chooses someone to go up in front of everyone else, however it's not the person upfron acting, it's the group. 

The person up front is the psychiatrist. The psychiatrist's tole is to ask questions to each person in the group in attempts to diagnose the group's symptoms. 

The group's role is to respond to each question in the manner of the symptom drawn from the deck for that round.

 The game is played in a group of 4-16 people (or more if you're feeling crazy). The group selects a new psychiatrist each round.

 Each round starts with a new person volunteeting to be the psychiatrist and the group draws a card that determines its symptom. The round ends when the psychiatrist guesses what the symptom is. 

Psychiatrist can be as intense or casual as you'd like. Keep things competitive by playing the team version, adding two psychiatrist and keeping score or play the free-for-all version. 

Keep things casual by playing in one big group, with just one psychiatrist. You can use a three minute time-limit per round or just let the rounds go as long as it takes to diagnose the symptom. Both are fun ways to play.

Psychiatrist is a game I played growing up in my hometown. After moving away for school, I introduced it to my friends one day and we ended up playing it night after night. When I found out that this game had never formally been brought to market, I set out to bring Psychiatrist the Game to the world. I partnered with a couple friends, one that helped me manufacture the game and another that built out the game's website and online presence. We have been working for months fine tuning the rules, developing over 100 symptoms to choose from, creating artistic designs, and playing the game for hours on end, ensuring that it coould provide the laughs and good times this game gave me.

 The game has evolved beyond just a free-for-all version, with one Psychiatrist asking questions to the entire group. We've also added far more dimension to the game, introducing a competitive version, score keeping, tons of symptom selections, and varying degrees of difficulty. We've had a lot of fun developing, tweaking and playing this game and hope you will enjoy it too!

Simply put - Kickstarter is the fastest way to make Psychiatrist the Game available to our followers and supporters! We have loved developing this idea into a formal card game, and we know you're going to love it as well!

So please back our Kickstarter, and prepare to let your inner crazy out! 

Risks and challenges

We have spent a lot of time developing and playing Psychiatrist The Game. We have found the perfect manufacturer and have worked out the ideal timetable for the man hours needed to fulfill all the pledges received. We are confident in our team's ability to succeed in fulfilling all orders by the time we have specified. We do understand that with any project there can be issues and roadblocks that arise. We believe in transparency and should any problem arise we will quickly reach out to all backers to explain the situation. We will stop at nothing to get your rewards to you. We don't believe in the 8-5 work day and we will work all hours of the day to fix the situation. Thank you so much for your support!
