Ever wondered how you would escape if you were swallowed by a whale or buried alive in an airtight coffin...with only an angry beaver and a foot-long hot dog to help you? Well, we have. And we’ve made it into a delightfully dark party game.
Someone recently won the 'You've been swallowed by a whale' scenario by using the Cheese Grater. It was simple, they got down on their knees and started to grate the whale's tongue. Then, before they knew it, they were spat right out. Nice.
In every toxic pink bucket you get:
- 400 random objects
- 100 Doom scenarios
- 2 voting pads
- 2 pencils
- Plus, there's a little extra something from us...
All we need now is your backing and we'll press the button and bring Bucket of Doom to life. Everything is ready to go. John at Cartamundi (one of the world's biggest card printers) has the artwork, Bucket James from Amphorea Packaging has helped us find the most shocking pink bucket known to humanity and James & James, a brilliant shipping company are on standby to get your bucket to you before Christmas.
We've spent longer than is strictly necessary (or healthy) crafting and debating which are the best 100 Doom scenarios for the game. And we've almost come to blows arguing about the funniest 400 random objects that you'll use to hatch your implausible escapes. All that's left is for you to back us and make it happen. No pressure.
Below is a list of the brilliantly mad Doom names that have been sent in so far:
Risks and challenges
The only risk to the project is that there is a world bucket shortage and we can't get enough buckets to turn into Buckets of Doom. But that won't happen because Bucket James is on it.
Other than that, if we get the funding the game is good to go. Our suppliers are confident that they can produce the game in 4 weeks. We are manufacturing everything in the UK to minimise risk and ensure quality. We estimate it will take a further 2 weeks to process and ship.
If you live in the UK your pledge will cover the cost of postage to anywhere in the UK. If you live outside the UK then your pledge doesn't quite cover the postage so we're subsidising it a bit so it stays low.
We're working with the best people in the business so we're really confident that you'll get your lovely bucket of deliciously dark doom before Christmas. If we don't, you have permission to throw us out of a plane without a parachute.
