About

That's So Wrong: Caveman Edition is the first in what we hope to be a long series of strategic party games that you can learn quickly, but spend years mastering. The game system offers so much substance that you can play them forever and ever until you die and pass them on to your children. Traditional standalone games usually make you pick one: they're either easy to pick up, but don't have enough gameplay to keep experienced players engaged; or they're loaded with depth, but tough to get into.  That's So Wrong: Caveman edition was designed to keep experienced gamers entertained, while maintaining simplicity so new players can jump right in.

Players start the game by building their tribe from a random set of 3 caveman. Once all players have done this, players can send their caveman out to the "wild" to fetch items which in turn help make your tribe stronger. Conflicts happen when your caveman and another player's choose the same item, cave woman, event, caves to live in, or dinosaurs to hunt. If this happens conflicts begin and are resolved by looking at the text of the card. Follow the simple instructions to determine the winner. Winners take the prized possessions back to their tribe.

Certain caveman and items are better at accomplishing different tasks. Some caveman are good at hunting, some are good at finding love with the cave-ladies, and others are less practical. Some are even perfect for winning conflicts. 

Caveman who successfully accomplish their mission by being uncontested or winning a conflict become exhausted and they (and their spoils of discovery) are unable to be sent back out again until the following turn. Managing who is exhausted and how many cards are in your hand (which can be expanded with the discovery of a new home/cave) is important to claim victory. As your tribe grows rich with items, powerful dinosaur hunts, cave-woman, and pets you'll be able to win more conflicts and cause more mayhem for other players.

At the end of the game, players add up the value of the cards they've collected and a winner may emerge.

Below are some examples of the types of cards you'll find in the game:

 Below is a pictograph of how far along we are. We've built the game, and we've play-tested it, secured manufacturing, and investigated the best way to ship it to you. All that stands between you and your copy is your support and a bit more game balancing. Unlike so many other games in today's market, we're putting a ton of energy into ensuring that the game is fun, engaging, and unpredictable every time you play. Help us spear the deer (not really, just in the picture).

Look, we're not going to paint you like one of our "French Girls" but we can definitely make you part of the game. Back our project with $700 (Canadian) or more and you'll get transformed into a caveman! Your copy will include you, transformed by our talented artist and game designers, as a playable part of your game. 

Unless you're super famous we probably don't know who you are, so you'll have to send us some information. Check out the form we'll send you below. Think you're hot? Did you come in 3rd Place at a 5th-grade science fair in Missouri?  Or perhaps you're just swol as %@#* and you live at a gym... Let us know!  We'll work with it to create a card that represents who you are.

Oh yeah, we almost forgot the most important part. Send us your picture! If you don't, we'll have to guess what you look like and while we're pretty good at math and the probability of us getting it right is like, at most 1 in 3.  So send your picture.  Please.

Check out one of our beta tester's pictures below! This is what he looks like transformed into a caveman. His stats and rules accurately reflect his personality in real life!

 We're doing our best to ship to as many countries as possible. Due to careful planning on our part, we can fit this thing into a sexy little box that ships nicely to many places. We're pretty confident that you won't get nailed with duties if you're part of the EU/UK, Canada, or the USA. What we can't guarantee is if your country decides to add taxes to your order (sorry mates!). That's beyond our control but we'll do our best to minimize that risk. If you're located in or around Southern Ontario, you can also opt for pick up at our Toronto location! 

 VS Entertainment Inc is no stranger to game development. We were founded in 2014 and have been growing ever since! We design and build high-end escape rooms, multiplayer virtual reality experiences, and now standalone tabletop games! Our diverse team is comprised of individuals from an array of backgrounds, genders (at least 2 of them), religions, beliefs (with the exception of flat-Earthers), and varying intelligence. When our powers combine we can make some really cool games! 

We've been working hard on developing this game for quite a while and now that we feel it's ready, we've chosen you -- the people of Earth -- to come together and help us launch our new Games division so we can call our parents and tell them that they were wrong about all that time we spent goofing around as kids.

That's right: &#$% you, Dad. 

If you're lucky enough to live in Toronto you can even come visit our flagship facility Escape Games Canada! Think you're smart? Prove it!

Risks and challenges

We don't foresee any risks with this Kickstarter in terms of production because we've already produced the game, its artwork, and established manufacturing. We're an operating company with years of experience in product development. We'll most likely manufacture the game for retail distribution at some point in the future regardless of our Kickstarter results. But we really love the Kickstarter platform and we found it to be a great way to offer something special to those who want to support us.

The only risk that we may encounter during the final phases is a drastic change in economic foreign exchange or trade policy. If that happens we'll update our shipping and duty rates, but we have a backup plan to ship directly to the US from our manufacturers, just in case. We will be able to minimize the costs if something changes with how world trade works.
