About

The party game for drunken geniuses...

Cheers, Kickstarter!

We come to you today to raise capital for our new, innovative, game titled Drinkuisition (Drink-wuz-ish-un). Drinkuisition is the one and only trivia, drinking, party card game. Think of it as trivia night at your favorite bar, only better! We are currently seeking funds for the manufacturing of the first copies of our brand new game.

HOW IT STARTED:

Drinkuisition is the first game of it's kind, ever. It was created a few years ago when we started to get bored with Wii Golf and decided to spice things up by asking each other trivia questions during our back swing. The next day we didn't even turn the Wii on, we just got right down to the questions and grabbed a beer. We knew we had a game on our hands but we didn't know to what extent. After scouring books and the internet for hundreds of potential questions we had finally arrived at a rough prototype to play test.

After play testing we had received some very positive feedback:

  • "This game is brilliant! and brilliantly simple."
  • "When can we play again?"
  • "How has no one ever thought of this before?"

We knew we had to move forward. After another long stint of refining Drinkuisition down to what it is today, here we are.

ABOUT DRINKUISITION:

Drinkuisition tests players' knowledge on a variety of subjects. We all keep vast amounts of so-called "useless" information in our brains. So what happens when those tidbits of general knowledge and trivia start swimming in a sea of booze? That's Drinkuisition. When the beer (or wine, cider, cocktails etc.) starts flowing the fun really begins and your evening takes shape. The questions involved are ones that have been hand picked over a two year process. These are not obscure questions that players would never know the answer to; on the contrary the questions involved are ones that  everyone should be familiar with at some capacity. Here's the kicker, although the questions may sound familiar to you, players quickly realize that they have trouble re-calling the answer when put on the spot. Most questions will leave players thinking "Oh, I know this but I can't think of the answer." We have found this to be the biggest contributing factor with players who end up playing for hours. They cannot put it down. Here are some examples of the types of common knowledge questions you can expect from Drinkuisition "What does VHS stand for?" or "How many colors make up a rainbow?" I watched movies on VHS as a kid and never knew what VHS meant until I started creating Drinkuisition. In the trivia category the questions are a little more obscure than the common knowledge deck, but players will still find them familiar. Some examples of trivia questions would be "What is Rambo's first name?" or "Which nationality was Adolf Hitler?" (Hint: He wasn't German.) These are the types of questions we wanted to include. There are also fun facts and optional bonus questions on every single card. If you're a fan of other party based card games, enjoy trivia night at your local pub, or just like having a few drinks with friends, then you'll love Drinkuisition. Whether you drink a little, a lot or not at all; everyone can play and have a ton of fun.

Gamers tend to be drinkers and we all know how popular trivia is. Trivia night at bars across the USA are extremely popular and are held on a weekly basis. We offer a version of those hosted trivia nights in the form of Drinkuisition. Bring the trivia night and the booze home with you, to a friends house or even to your favorite bar that does not regularly host a trivia night.

GAMEPLAY: 

The game uses 3 individual decks, the main deck (play deck), the trivia questions deck and the common knowledge questions deck. Each player will draw the top card from the main deck and follow the instructions on the card. If you are instructed to answer a trivia or common knowledge question then the player to your left will draw the top card from the corresponding deck and ask the question. There is, either, a fun fact or optional bonus question on every card. If a player answers a question correctly, they will keep the card. If a player answers a question incorrectly, the player will "take a drink". The player with the most question cards in their hand, at the end of each round, is the winner and will start the next round.

PLAYERS AND GAME TIME: 

Drinkuisition is recommended for 2-6 players, this will allow an even amount of cards per player. However, it is possible to play with more friends if your group doesn't mind a few people having one extra turn in any given round. A typical round should last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the amount of side chatter, joking around, etc. (which does usually happen) At the end of the round, simply shuffle the main deck and add the used questions cards to the bottom of their corresponding piles. Then you're ready to play again. It usually takes about 6 rounds (6 hours of play) before you will start to see questions repeated. We are already planning the launches of our first expansion packs to keep the questions in Drinkuisition new, exciting and, most importantly, fun!

Risks and challenges

This is our debut product here at DRNK Games Llc. With that being said, this is our main focus. We are fully committed to getting you, your copy as soon as possible. In the case that we exceed our goal, we could potentially see a small delay in shipping out your rewards. We will keep each and every one of you updated throughout the process. We will make sure to keep an open line of communication with everyone involved.

We have been in constant contact with some very well known manufacturers. We have all of our files ready to be sent at the click of a button; this way when our campaign ends we can start the manufacturing process immediately. We have finished all the technical aspects of this project. The only thing standing between us and a large quantity of finished product is our lack of capital.

Disasters and other world events could result in a potential delay, no matter how unlikely that may be. In that event, we ask that you bare with us, we will have your reward to you A.S.A.P.

WITHOUT YOUR PLEDGE WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PRODUCE DRINKUISITION. WE DO NOT HAVE THE CAPITAL NEEDED TO PRODUCE THIS PRODUCT WITHOUT A SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGN.
