“What’s That Slang” ® CONTENTS & RULES: Contents:

(150) cards total: (72) Slang Bonus Cards, (72) What’s Hott Cards, (5) Kool-Meter scoring cards, (1) Went 1st card, (1) 45- (second), slow as Molasses sand timer, (1) Scoreboard (1) Dry Erase Marker, (0) Eraser? (forget about it-use a paper towel) and (1) Rules…..

Sorry box too small! Brains, street creditability, & Common Sense not included.........

Objective: Team Play: 

Be the first team to score 150 points.

The Set-Up:

 Split into two to four equal teams. Each team chooses a name for itself and writes it in one of the squares on the scoreboard. Total scores after each round.

 Designate one teammate as the card reader & rotate this player after each team’s turn. The opposing team should designate one teammate to shadow the reader so that he/she reads exactly what’s on the cards & does not read off answers.

 Flip a coin to see who goes 1st “use a double headed coin if you have one” 

.. The team that goes 1st must hold the “I went 1st Card”…….

How to Play:  

1) Start with the: “What’s Hott Card?” Each Squad will try to unravel a set of 8 common expressions pertaining to the “What’s Hott Word”, which is found, within the “What’s That Slang” logo, at the top right corner of each card. Answers to the cards follow the ...... Readers may read the card more than once. Items must be read in numerical order and as is. Adding words or reading the answers results in opposing team receiving that point.  

 (2) If and when a team ENTIRELY successfully completes the “What’s Hott Card”, They are allowed to answer the “Slang Bonus Card”. That team may choose, without looking at the contents of the card, to “PLAY” or “PASS” their bonus card. If the initial team plays & completes the bonus card, they earn “5” points. If they pass it to the opposing team and that team cannot complete the card the INTIAL team earns “7” points, but if the opposing team completes the card they earn “7” points. (Is it worth the gamble?!?) …… See back for more rules….

Each Squad will be able to exhibit “Common Sense” and “Street Knowledge” to answer Slang synonyms. Teams MUST complete the ENTIRE card’s requirements to receive bonus points. Unlike “Hott Cards”, Bonus Card items may be read in ANY order and allowable hints are bolded in ( ).

Team Play:

 Squads will take turns and players will take turns reading clues to their own teammates. 

 On your turn, take a “What’s Hott Card” from the box. Say the “Hottword”. 

 Start the Timer…and begin reading the clues in order from 1 to 8. 

 All teammates are allowed to say/yell their answers “out loud”.  If the entire team is stumped, you all may pass and move to the next hint, but MUST forfeit 2 points to the opposing team. Teams may pass not and/or error on more than 1 question for cards to be considered Complete and the team be eligible to answer the bonus card.

  You May Not move to the next clue until you have either gotten a correct answer, or your teammates have said/agreed to “PASS”. 

 Teams May Not pass their last question to complete the Hott card and get to the Bonus card. 

  You must stop reading/answering when the Timer runs out (unless the other team is not paying attn). Your entire team should be quiet, because any answers given after time runs out will help the opposing team- who gets the chance to STEAL the (1) point for only the current question! The Opposing Squad: 

 While your opponent is playing, your team has four tasks: (1) watch the Scoring Card, (2) the card reader, and (3) the Timer (4) Be ready to steal the last point of the Hott card! 

 Watch the Timer and make a loud Annoying, “Sound!!!” when time runs out…. 

 Scoring: 

Each squad scores one point for each correct answer given while either playing or stealing. 5 points will be given for completed “Slang Bonus Cards” Opposing teams cannot receive steal points from Slang Bonus Cards unless the opposing team chooses to blindly pass the bonus card to you or fails to complete the card (see Bonus card rules). 

Keep track of your points by making slashes on the Scoreboard. Teams may also receive (1) point for reader errors. Winning: If your squad is first to reach 150 points after both teams have had equal numbers of turns your team has Swag and you win! At that point, feel free to read the square, geek, fly, and lame score cards to the opposing team as you rub Victory in their faces!!!    

What's That Slang? started out as a fun idea and creative way to exemplify how a person's language, ethnicity, personality, upbringing, & educational differences may be different but unique & equally valuable! We have high faith that this project & concept will receive funding due to its educational aspect, uniqueness, mix of Urban & Non Urban Education, & the laughter it ignites!!! This game is educational and fun for people of all ages, race, & genders!  

Our company's main goal is to be an outlet to those who have similar creative ideas & help them through the process of bringing their project to life! We are on kickstarter get funding help for our company's first project!! I am fully vested & will continue to put my all into this project & business. 

We do need your help!, this project & business requires a large amount of financing, but when finished will help many others reach their dreams! I have a great respect for the time, effort, & dollar that it takes to fuel creative projects. We sincerely appreciate any & all of your pledges!!

Risks and challenges

The Board Game Business is not an easy business and has been a learning process everyday! However, we are willing to continue to learn and have been completely open to experts who are welcoming us into the business!

We have been reading seminars, blogs, and communicating with the professionals of this business. While they are brash and straight forward they are very instrumental to success. To ensure that this project is a success we are:

1) Keeping overhead and other costs low
(working from home, after work, & on weekends to help start the project)

2) We are gathering quotes from several printers
(We are going for good quality & low production cost. Communicating w/ friends in the business has been key in this area and saved us from many initial mistakes). We have current quotes & have visited several factories, but have found out that our original production cost were far too high for success. We have been guided to the proper vendors now!! (very thankful)

3) We are taking classes and guidance from 3 different business schools
(mentors @ Arkansas- UofA, Baylor University, & University of Central Ark

4) We attend banking and fiance classes
(available via our business account and local banks- we have learned that it takes more than these classes to speak the board game language & understand the numbers in this world )

5) We are connected at the Chamber of Commerce to Thriving Businesses
(there are support meetings every week-businesses helping each other w/ no cost-only your word on help support when your needed)

6) We have a board of financial advisers, marketers, and researchers to help guide this project!

7) Honest and Hard work towards success!!!

We have a simple motto of getting done what we promise we will get done. Where there is a will there is a way.

We will also fully communicate w/ our backers and potential customers so that we maintain your trust and business! You make this project happen, we need and value you, and will treat you in just that manner! Thank you!!!
