About

"What are you trying to sell me?"

Scenes in a Box is a humorous game for those who think they are funny. This card game is the Michael Jordan or the Muhammad Ali of comedy games. This game is the true test of wittiness and quickness. You will receive a deck of 108 professionally produced playing cards each with a odd, funny, or awkward situation on them like this: 

The Rules:

First the group votes one player as the least funny, they have to then go to the fridge and grab everyone a beer, that person picks a card from the deck and is the judge first. (because no one wants to hear their answer anyway) They then read and show everyone the card:

"I think I at least deserve C's"
"I think I at least deserve C's"

once that player has finished reading the card, it is a race for the rest of the players to come up with the funniest answer. There is no order, once a player has a answer they want to share he/she puts his/her hand flat on the table. This indicates that he/she has the floor and no one else can talk or share an answer until he/she is done sharing his/hers (A speaking stick can be used as well, get creative). This goes on until everyone who wants to share an answer has an opportunity (not everyone has to answer the scene, and no repeated answers are allowed). The judge then has to decide who had the funniest answer. He/she must account for cleverness, humorousness and quickness when picking a winner. Once he/she has picked the winner he/she then awards the scene card to them and the person to the left of the judge is now the judge.

With no pre-written answer cards only true improv skill will help you.

"Why are there no answer cards?"

Answer cards hold players back. Sure, they might help uncreative Larry come up with a funny joke or two, but eventually all the cards are known, and many become irrelevant so the jokes stop producing laughs. Without answer cards hilarious people can shine their true colors. All in all, the absence of answer cards add to a more enjoyable playing experience. Use those inside jokes between you and the judge as an advantage, and feel on top of the world when an answer you created makes everyone around the table fall over laughing.

Risks and challenges

As soon as this project is funded I will be finalizing and manufacturing the games, the only possible risk is an unexpected setback that could set delivery date back a couple of weeks though I do not see this happening. That or the snow in Buffalo will burry me alive.
