About

At Definitely Not Evil Labs, we are all about the gaming experience. Switchuations is our contribution to the party game world, and we are excited for you to try it! We have created and culled hundreds of cards to give you the best game possible. We love it, our playtesters have loved it, and we are sure you will love it too!

Each game includes 200 Situation cards, rules, a dry-erase marker and our innovative box!

The box design is a major contribution to the game! The Double Speech Bubble is a super-durable dry-erase surface! So, instead of a white board that you might lose, just write inside the speech bubble!! 

The angular cut of the lid lets it rest on the table to display your masterpiece!

 Reviews

Christopher Bowden from Winter Moon Games previewed Switchuations after PAX Unplugged. Check it out below then visit his website WWW.WinterMoonGames.com!

Spoiler alert: He really liked it! 

"I played Switchuations with my friends at the local game store.  It was a lot of fun.  A serendipitous find was in the person who felt that they were not creative.  Whenever he wrote a simple prompt, apologetically because he felt he was not creative, those turned out to be incredibly funny and garnered the most laughs.  It's a great game with a simple learning curve."   - Dr. Andrew W.     Rating: 10 / 10

"A varied game of humor and creativity. Great for any group, easy to setup and highly replayable."  - Jacob B.     Rating: 8 / 10

"This game is hilarious. It is as family appropriate and/or raunchy as you want it to be. You create the scenarios as you play. Switchuations is a must-have for every family game room and house party."  - Scott H.     Rating: 10 / 10

"Some of the most original laughs I have ever had! We had such a good time, I honestly wish we could've streamed longer. I can't wait to play Switchuations with my family this Christmas!" - Jaraxlle     Rating: 10/10

And Megan B. really  loved the game:

Thanks, Megan. We love you, too. ;)

Overkick Stretch Goals 

If we fund for $25,001 or more, we will include a beautiful set of Rubber Bands to help keep our innovative box design tightly closed during transport and on your gaming shelf. 

That's right. A literal stretch goal.

AND, we will reveal our $50,000 stretch goal for the world to see. If we fund at $50k, we will reveal our $100K stretch goal, and so on.

If the world loves Switchuations and we fund for more than $1M we will include an original high-quality unpainted Grandma miniature in every box, for no additional cost. [Note to self: hide this ridiculous stretch goal until I get Lab approval.]

Social Media Stretch Goals

Here's the LEVEL 1 punch card. If we as a community punch five of the six out, we will unlock 10 blank Situation cards for every base set and 5 new button designs to choose from! Use the blank cards to record inside jokes, or write some hilarious new Situations! 

This is a pretty easy set of Social Media goals, but wait til you see the rewards for LEVEL 2!

And the requirements for Social Media Stretch Goals LEVEL 1 are:

Twitter: @DNElabs gains 100 new followers

Tumblr: DefinitelyNotEvil.Tumblr.com gains 100 new followers

Snapchat: 200 snapchatters add DNELabs as a friend (snapcode below)

Instagram: 20 public videos of the demo played by fans are uploaded using #Switchuations

Facebook: 300 new likes for facebook.com/Switchuations

Kickstarter: 100 creator follows

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge we face is the time in manufacturing. We are working with a leader in the game manufacturing industry to help mitigate this risk. There is always the chance that the manufacturing goes longer than we were quoted. Hopefully our timeline will absorb the potential excess.

Our cards are written, our box is designed, and our art is ready to go. The only other limitation would be with the backers who are helping us write custom cards, if our collaboration ran long.

    One of Four original PROTOTYPES!

    We have Four surviving prototypes. Only four. Complete with cards we cut, trimmed, added to, hated, loved, and spilled stuff on. The prototype card count is between 200 and 450. There are even three Hulk Hogan cards that didn't make the final cut, but you could have them all in their glorious original form! We will even sign the copies and include a personalized letter. These will ship AS SOON AS THE KICKSTSARTER ENDS, so North Americans should have their prototype copy in hand before your New Year's Eve party!! Plus, get a copy of the manufactured base game in June 2019, as well as FIVE sweet buttons of your choice. Also, at the conclusion of the campaign, unlock the PDF of the full base game!
