Bragging Rights - A Creative, Competitive Improv Game
Compete to come up with the most impressive tale of your -nonexistent- criminal exploits.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Wed, August 29 2018 7:00 PM UTC +00:00.
Bragging Rights is an improv based, competitive storytelling game for 3 -7 players that lasts for 40 - 60 minutes.
Everyone plays as an incompetent criminal, trying to claim bragging rights for a crime none of you actually committed. Create an elaborate - and often ridiculous - tale using the evidence recovered at the scene. But keep your story consistent or another player can wager street cred to call you out on it and show you up.
Bragging Rights is an improv based, competitive storytelling game that lets everyone be a storyteller and challenger. The only limits are your imagination and ability to convince your fellow criminals that your ludicrous exploits took place!
For more details you can find a full draft of our rules here!

Box contents - the box you see is a render of the final box, but the cards are real and the final product will be very similar to what you see!
240 Evidence cards
Each evidence card has a unique piece of evidence recovered from the crime scene. A game of Bragging Rights uses 5 pieces of evidence. Every one needs to be expertly woven into your tale of criminal mastery!
(You might notice the evidence cards are a different colour to the video. The video uses our original prototype and the above image is the final version of the cards.)
50 Crime cards
Every box has 50 unique crimes. All are non-violent brag-worthy criminal escapades. Each one worth it's weight in gold of street cred.
There are 10 default characters that you can choose to play as. Each one has different traits, some good, some bad. Every criminal has a unique story of how they got here, why don't you tell yours?
56 street cred tokens
There's no better way to show street cred than slamming it on the table in front of you. This is how you issue challenges and decide the winner.
Note: All shipping will be charged separately after the campaign. Further details in Shipping section.

€17,000+ - Cheaper Shipping!
If we raise more than €17,000 we'll be able to offer cheaper shipping to everyone! The more we raise past this point the cheaper your shipping will be!
We have decided to charge the shipping after the campaign through Pledge Manager. For anyone who isn't familiar with it, at the end of the campaign you'll get an email asking for your address and be asked to pay the shipping fee.
Why don't we include the shipping here?
There are two main reasons. On Kickstarter shipping counts towards your overall goal, making the goal higher and harder to calculate. Kickstarter also takes a cut of the goal, when this includes shipping it means we'd have to charge approx 10% extra on shipping.
These aren't solid and may vary. And, as mentioned above, if we hit our last stretch goal, they will put as much as we can off the postage!

Risks and challenges
This is our second board game on Kickstarter. Our first, Rampunctious, funded and was fulfilled without much issue. It was a little late though.
For this campaign our biggest concern is timing. Our estimates are based on placing the order directly after the campaign ends on Sept 1st. Because of this, we need to be strict with the pledge levels that involve content. With Elusive Embezzler, Canny Cutpurse and Criminal Mastermind tiers you'll be contacted after you've placed your pledge. If you don't respond by the end of the campaign, a card will be attributed to you, otherwise we'll miss our Christmas release date.
We already have our manufacturer lined up, guarantees in place to deliver by Christmas and a comprehensive packaging and delivery plan (it involves, friends, pizza and boxes... just like last time!) to get it out to you!
- All gone!
