About

YOUR DARE PACKAGE is a party game involving two-hundred cards, one-hundred questions, three angry bunnies, and a twisted sense of humour. Okay, we lied about one of those things, but it is a card game for the dreadfully caring, and the courageously daring, and also for you.

The game is simple. A question is asked, you decide whether you care enough to choose the more sensible and sincere option (and lay down the CARE card), or dare to embrace the darker choice and be more apathetic (laying down the DARE card). The funniest reasoning behind the poorly made choices wins the round, and a new card is then drawn for the deck, where the process repeats until someone inevitably says they're bored and want to go home, or someone dies. The cards are as mundane or as offensive as you choose to take it, we merely facilitate your own twisted thought process.

The game gets arguably more funny if your friends are horribly imaginative and twisted souls who have no filter, or little regard for people's perceptions of them. If you fit that bracket, you're the perfect demographic for our game. Maybe also see a therapist (or play this game with your therapist... which may arguably lead to them needing their own therapist).

The game itself was conceptualised and created by Shihab Mehboob, a Computer Science university student who also happens to make indie apps. Your Dare Package was created after understanding that people love to show their dark side once in a while. It made use of the best ideas and cute hand-made illustrations to bring you a perfectly packaged card game that will hopefully make you just as excited to play with as it makes us. But we can't get it out there alone, which is why we put together this Kickstarter campaign, we can't do this without your help.

So if you're into hilarious card games, have an appreciation for gorgeous illustrations, love to go wild with your friends, and enjoy having a laugh, we think you'll love this.

How does it work?

You start by handing out a randomly shuffled selection of a 20 CARE/DARE cards mix to each player. We don't have a set limit on the amount of players, but we recommend less than 5 for the sake of convenience. 

The game then begins by picking up a card from the deck of question cards. Oh look, we've picked up one about a weird man's Batman-related antics.

The card presents an option to the players, they can either choose to CARE (which is usually the sensible approach), or DARE (which is far from sensible). Each player takes it in turns to put down either of those corresponding cards, and then justifies their reasoning to the rest of the players. The funnier the explanation, the better. At the end of that round, the player with the funniest story is elected the winner by a vote.

(We chose DARE. Our justification that won us the round was as follows... "The world is a very mundane and boring place to be, everyone around you is getting on with their 9-5 cycle day in, day out. No one looks forward to their mornings, only for their weekends. But amongst the tiring hustle and bustle of everyday life, if a masked vigilante were to arise from the depths of his man-cave, and presented the world with a moment of hope for humour and frivolous fun, would you not take his offer? I chose to become what I once hated for the greater good, I became a man who dresses up. I chose this life for myself so that I could peer from behind hedges at unsuspecting businessmen driving off into the sunset with a banana trail.")

As rounds pass by, the cards available in each player's possession starts to diminish, the players may only possess one of the two CARE/DARE cards and so must be forced into coming up with a funny explanation for their choice to try win the round.

Whilst a point system exists for each round, we believe that it's far more enjoyable if you don't keep track of player scores. Or keep track of it and use it against your friends, what do we care. It's just a stupid metric.

Show me more!

Sure! Here are a few more cards that are included in the deck.

A few more can be seen on our website over at YourDarePackage.com, but that's all we're showing you guys for now. The rest shall remain hidden for you to witness yourself as you unpack the expertly-crafted packaging, and hold the pristine cards in your trembling hands.

I'm offended by these cards!

This game isn't for you. They get a lot worse.

How did this game come about?

In the simplest terms, we had an idea, and we made it.

But, to elaborate upon that pathetic summary, we started with the idea of wanting to make a fun and enjoyable party game, something that causes mass laughter and gets groups of friends together. The obvious solution we came up with was a card game, as no other form of party game has the added benefit of being as portable and quick to set up and tidy away.

The name of the game itself hasn't changed since its conception. We were set upon Your Dare Package, and we stuck with it. The initial concept included the idea of actually getting players to carry out dares if they were chosen. Whilst this may have been more amusing in a different sense, it wasn't where we wanted to head, as it essentially destroys the premise of a card game and complicates seating arrangements if individuals have to carry out expressive dares and actions (yes, we have indeed thought about seating arrangements and comfort of play).

We then decided upon a card game that presents obvious choices that are drastically different. Inspired by the prehistoric question, "Would you rather...?", and the usage of CARE/DARE intertwined, we settled upon the current game that you've just had the pleasure of witnessing.

The next few weeks comprised of individually designing and creating each card, coming up with the propositional questions, reflecting upon whether they were good enough with a close group of friends, and then designing cute and gorgeous illustrations for each card that fits the question asked.

Our tools for designing the set of cards, if any creative individuals are interested, comprised of an iMac, Sketch for Mac, and a fairly-functional brain.

Okay, but I still want to see some more cards.

Okay okay, here are two more. But that is all.

What's in the box?!

...asked David Mills as he came to an unexpected realisation in the movie Se7en.

On a serious note, the beautifully-crafted box comes with 100 unique question cards with gorgeous illustrations, 50 CARE cards, 50 DARE cards, and the instructions. If you're expecting some chocolates and a parachute, you may have mistakenly been searching for Your Care Package.

Next steps.

We are working on expansion packs. We genuinely believe that having more question cards would make this game even more fun and enjoyable, and that's why we're not resting until we run out of hilariously offensive and stupid ideas. We will also be working on a mobile app so you idiots can play with your insufferable friends without having to spend time with them in person.

Help us make this game a reality.

We wanted to start a Kickstarter campaign for this game as it would be the fastest way to get this game into your hands. We love playing hilariously offensive and stupid card games with our friends, we hope you do too, and would love for you to back this project and allow us to kill a few trees as a sacrificial ritual to bring this wonderful game to life.

We aim to ensure that everyone gets the rewards promised no matter how many people pledge, which is why we're keeping them relatively simple. No flashy things or high-end merchandise.
