About

 The whole idea for the game came about roughly a year ago. Danny and I were at my boyfriends parents house hanging out playing Scrabbles Catch Phrase with a large group of like minded adults. His parents had turned it into a drinking game, so it was just that much better now. The game was a blast but the only thing we wished that it was more for adults. Flash forward a couple months and we established a rough draft of our game. We printed out a copy of all 54 cards and made them card sized. We tested it out with a few friends and everybody loved it. Now here we are today with a prototype deck and the start of the app.

The Card Game:

The deck contains 54 cards. Two of the cards are a brief description of the game. Remove these from the deck and shuffle. Using a timer on your smartphone, microwave, stopwatch or similar devices, set a timer for 45 seconds. (You can adjust the time to your liking, this was what we found to be the best) Place the deck of cards in the middle of a table or circle of people. One player starts by flipping a card. As soon as they flip that card another play starts the timer. They then have to describe the word on the card without saying any of the following: 

  •  Words that rhyme with the phrase on the card. 
  • The first letter of the phrase.
  •  Any part of the word.

 You can however hint these: 

  •  How many words are in the phrase.
  •  Synonyms of the phrase.
  •  Act out the phrase. 

Everyone gets to guess what the phrase is, once somebody correctly guesses the next player draws a card and the game continues until the time stops. Whoever is trying to describe a word at that point has to drink  the amount that is shown on the card. The cards are shuffled into the deck and round 2 starts. 

The App:

The app will have everything ready for you. The timer will run in the background as soon as you tap on play and will sound a buzzer when the time is up. A smartphone and the app is the only thing required outside of a few good drinks. The starting player will click 'Start' on the app and the word will appear on the screen, when somebody guesses the phone is passed to their left and that player taps to screen for the next word to appear. The buzzer will sound and that player will drink. They pass the phone to their left and that player presses play again. Categories and custom times will be added to the settings option.

We've created the prototype deck that is shown in the pictures at the bottom and have started the development of the mobile app.

 As we're not the most skillful developers in the world our plans include hiring somebody to make the app for us. We will then have it released on Android and Apple. Our next focus is moving onto the card aspect of the game. We have received a quote from a playing card manufacturer and plan on producing a small back stock to sell on Amazon. We believe this game should be played at every party and we won't stop trying to sell it until it is at every party.

 This is a drinking game. Which means that it is intended for adult use only. The words and phrases on the card are not for everyone especially those under an age of maturity. The samples below are the mildest that are in the deck. The game is quite R-Rated. Please drink responsibly and remember this is intended for ages 21+

With all that being said let's move onto some pictures of the card game:

Risks and challenges

There are no risks we'll be taken when it comes to this. We've been together for over six years now (March 28th is our anniversary) Our business relationship in this is project is not big enough to destroy our relationship. We are open to constructive criticism for future versions and updates of the game. This is our re-launch of this project. We hope that we are successful this time around as we strongly believe this game is worth playing.
