About

SpeakEasy is a game that dares players complete social missions. Most missions involve meeting people and making new friends. Others involve competing against your friends in outrageous challenges!

30 custom coasters in each set — each with a social mission
30 custom coasters in each set — each with a social mission

Missions are printed on reusable coasters, which fit right in at your local bar, cocktail party, or picnic.

SpeakEasy is so simple to play, even an inebriate could learn! Here are the rules:

1. Draw a coaster. Read the mission out loud to the group.

2. Assign the mission to another player.
3. That player has 3 minutes to complete the mission.
4. If they succeed, they win the coaster. If they fail (or refuse!), you win it.
5. The first player to collect 5 coasters wins!

SpeakEasy has over 25 missions. Each one is designed to stretch your social circle, and introduce you to new people!

Comic Relief

"Target player must make a stranger laugh!"

Getting Fresh
"Choose two players. The first one to return with a piece of gum wins this coaster."

Tongue and Cheeky

"Target player must get a stranger to stick their tongue out."

DOM PERIGNON ($1,000): Got some killer theme and mission ideas? Help us design our next stretch goal (a 5-coaster expansion set). If we make that stretch goal, people around the world will be playing your custom missions! If we don't reach the goal, we'll still custom-print your set, and send you 4 copies to play with your friends.

$17,000 Stretch Goal: 5-card expansion, with a yet-to-be-determined theme. Pledge at the Dom Perignon level to help us design the expansion, and choose the theme!

$22,000 Stretch Goal: An even more outrageous expansion that unlocks once we reach our first stretch goal.

$27,000 Stretch Goal: Some crazy TBD expansion that we haven't even dreamed up yet, but will certainly be so crunk as to explode your brain into mind jello.

'Cuz you knew there had to be one. With great power comes...another round?

"SpeakEasy is a novelty product. Use of SpeakEasy may result in: flirtation, death, excitement, scandal, lawsuits, romance, flatulence, triumph, arrest, hookups, breakups, creepiness, love, regrets, butterflies in the stomach, and every other damned thing.

Speakeasy is dangerous fun. Beware!"

Risks and challenges

Any creative project has inherent risks, but SpeakEasy is a straightforward print project, and we are seasoned pros. The two things that could keep a team from delivering a game like this are creative problems and logistical problems. We have both those issues covered.

1. Creative issues. The game is designed and the art is already in. The major content questions are settled, and all that remains is getting it printed. Even if Jerome and Eddie were hit by a rabid Ebola bus, the project would still deliver.

2. Logistical issues. Trans-Pacific shipping is no joke, and getting the final product back from Asia is our biggest risk. There are always surprises, but we've built flex time into our schedule so that we don’t promise more than we can deliver.

All-in-all, we are supremely confident that we can get this game printed and into the hands of our supporters in a professional and timely manner.
