Rabble is a rowdy party game for rowdy people. What does that mean? It means Rabble involves a lot of yelling, inside jokes, and watching your friends fist bump in the air while trying to describe “twerking” with one word.
4+ players, 35 minutes playtime, ages 17+
SO HOW DO YOU PLAY RABBLE?
Rabble has three rounds. In each round, your team is trying to guess all of your team’s absurd Rabble Cards before the other team guesses theirs. The catch is that you’re guessing the same words each round, but each round has different restrictions on how you can give clues.
In the first round, you can say and do whatever you want. In the second, you can only say one word per card. And in the final round, no words or sounds, only acting.
Each team also has Challenge Cards to slow down the other team by making them do ridiculous things during their turn such as "karate chop the air" or "talk in a British accent."
SO TELL ME ABOUT THESE CARDS...
Each copy of Rabble will come with 392 Rabble Cards and 56 Challenge Cards.
RABBLE CARDS range from the brainy (“Schrödinger's cat”) to the absurd (“Loud Noises”) to the downright wrong (“Rusty Trombone”) and everything in-between. We marked the most depraved cards so you can pull them out when you’re playing with Aunt Mary (or keep them in, we don’t know what Aunt Mary is into…)
~50 Rabble Cards will be illustrated, ~100 will have a one liner that hopefully some of you will find funny, and the rest will just feature the word.
CHALLENGE CARDS are a great opportunity to watch your friends do ridiculous things. Challenges include "singing your clues," "naming objects that are green," "pretending to be a sexy saxophone player," and much, much, more.
EARLY BACKER EXCLUSIVE: We want to thank everyone who supports Rabble early so, for the first print run of Rabble, we are going to offer exclusive artwork on some of our cards that won’t be available in later editions of the game.
WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND RABBLE?
We (Jake and George) have been developing Rabble for over a year now - most of it spent brainstorming words and having heated arguments about whether “Having T-Rex arms” is funny enough to be a Challenge Card (it is). We wanted to create a game that got people from opening the box to snorting with laughter as quickly as possible.
Rabble is inspired by a classic folk game that Jake played with his family. We loved the game but wanted a more outrageous version to play with our weird friends. Yes, there are other boxed versions of the game, we’ve played them all and had a blast. But we think Rabble is different. Not only did we change the rules to be easier to pick-up and quicker to play, but we tried to be as imaginative as possible when creating Rabble Cards. You aren’t just guessing people or movies, you’re guessing literally anything and everything. One turn you’re describing “Pumpkin Spice Latte” and the next you’re acting out “keg stand.”
Challenge Cards also completely change the game. You have to manage who and when you play them on to maximize disruption. Nothing is as satisfying as making your friends talk like, a totally chill, like, Valley Girl who also has to balance a card on their head.
Where we are at now is that Rabble is basically complete and ready to be produced. The cards are finalized and we have played Rabble hundreds of time with tons of different people so we're confident Rabble is easy-to-learn and ridiculously fun. We've also found an experienced manufacturer to produce Rabble.
We're turning to Kickstarter to help us cross the finish line and help make Rabble a reality.
STRETCH GOALS (and they're not what you think...)
If we hit some funding and social stretch goals, we'll add more Rabble Cards and illustrations to every game.
BUT....we also wanted to demonstrate our dedication to you, our backers, so we added some super stretch goals. If we hit them, we'll do some pretty outrageous things inspired by our Kickstarter video.
If we hit $50K in funding...
George will finally take the MCAT and be one step closer to being the doctor his parents always wanted. He'll even post his score.
If we get 2,000 "Likes" on Rabble's Facebook page (LINK HERE)...
Jake will eat 5 Large Pizzas in one sitting (he can't leave the table until he finishes). We'll even livestream it for your viewing pleasure.
If we get 2,000 followers on Rabble's Instagram (LINK HERE)*...
Ben (filmed our Kickstarter video and also lives in a van) will get an Avocado Toast tattoo. He'll also provide photo evidence.
We had fun coming up with these...
...but not as much fun as you'll have watching us complete them if any of the super stretch goals are achieved. See below for the full list of goals.
*We know we said 1K IG followers in a previous update. One of our fans got particularly excited and hit the goal in a somewhat questionable way. To be fair to Ben, we are upping this goal to be 2K organic followers.

You will also get to create a custom card in the game that we'll illustrate (we'll work with you to make sure it fits Rabble).
Finally, we'll also send you 10 copies of Rabble because how else are you going to show off your newfound fame to your friends and family?

Risks and challenges
We are tweaking some of the artwork, but Rabble itself is done and ready to be played (and trust us, it has).
We decided to keep the game and pledge goals extremely simple on purpose. We’re working with established manufacturers to make sure we have the highest quality game that ships on time. We also included some buffer time to account for shipping & manufacturing delays.
Of course, there is always a chance of unforeseen issues delaying the manufacturing or the shipping of the game but we promise to do everything in our power to provide the highest quality game to you in a timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
