About

Now Everyone Get The F%$# Out! is a fast-paced, screw-your-friends-over party game. You and your fellow players are college students trying to study for a final, but there's a huge dorm hall party happening where you live. To get the partiers out and study, you have to make the other player's rooms more fun than yours, so the partiers will leave your room to check it out. The only way you can study is if every person in your room gets the F%$# Out.

So what can you expect from this game? Well, we can think of a few things:

  • 10 to 15 minute game time, 3 to 5+ players
  • Fast paced, screw-your-friends style with high replayability
  • College party theme for laughs and excitement/nostalgia
  • 50 unique Items and 70 wild Actions to change the tide of gameplay 
  • Rules variants for experienced players or the over-21 crowd

Learning how to play F%$# Out is easier than writing a 100-word essay or blacking out on a Saturday night. We tested the game with both sober and intoxicated players, so trust us when we say it's made for nerds and party animals alike.

First, you have your dice, or the Crowd. The number on the dice represents the number of partiers who refuse to leave your room without reason, referred to as Persons. This number goes up and down during the game, and whoever hits zero first wins. 

In order to do anything, you need to play cards. On a turn you play up to two cards, then draw back to a five card hand. There are three types of cards: 

Actions have an effect, then are placed in the discard pile, or the Trash. They can change Person counts, move or destroy Items, steal cards, and much more.  

Instant Actions are a type of Action that can be played at any time. They can be used to counter cards, steal effects, or just generally do things off-turn. 

In order to really screw players over, you use Items. Item cards go in the area in front of a player, called a player’s Room. Items have a fun rating from 1 to 5, and the sum of the Item fun in a Room determines a player’s overall Room Fun. 

The Room Fun of players determines who is Nerd and who is Party Animal, as represented by the two tokens in the game. The Nerd is the player with the lowest Fun, and the Party Animal is the player with the highest Fun. At the end of every turn, the Nerd loses one Person from their Crowd, and the Party Animal gains one Person to their Crowd. 

In order to get everyone the f%$# out of your room, you need to make other players the Party Animal and yourself the Nerd using Items, change the tide of gameplay with Actions, and interrupt your opponent’s plans with Instant Actions. Can you control the party? 

Want to test run the game before pledging? Don’t worry, we understand the importance of pre-gaming. That’s why the Print and Play is open to everyone! Grab some dice, or any other number tracking device, and try it out. 

We're using the Print and Play not only for showing off what we've got in store for you, but also for making edits to how the rules are written and clarified, mainly for card interactions. Please contact us if you have any comments or questions about them.

You can also, while supplies last, buy copies of the original 100 prints on Amazon! They come with an exclusive Blank Item card, plus have a neat misprint where the card borders are slightly more purple than they're supposed to be. If this sounds like your jam, check it out.

Are you the president or otherwise important person in your college's game club? We're offering a FREE COPY of F%$# Out to game clubs across the world! Email us at starcapgames@gmail.com if you're interested in this offer.  

All we ask in return is that you tell your club members about this game and Kickstarter. It's very hard to get the word out about this by ourselves, so any mention you can give is a big help to us, and we thank you greatly for it.

The name, and the entire game concept, is based on a true story during creator Pat Roughan's college years. Pat was the jerk housemate who threw a house party while his roommate had a final to study for. The party grew, becoming more and more distracting to the roommate, and even began to be centered right around her desk. The roommate, finally fed up with the chaos around her, shouted "Now everyone get the F%$# OUT!" The party quickly dispersed, but Pat was struck with inspiration. He tried to explain that what just happened was totally game material, but his friends replied with “Dude, you’re drunk and stupid.” Ignoring those comments, Pat started what would become Now Everyone Get The F%$# Out!.

The game was originally pretty different than what you see today. Persons were their own deck of cards, and had Items that they were attracted to more than others. Items, instead of having Fun ratings, added or subtracted Persons from the room. This version of the game was far too complicated to be reasonable, which led to a two year pause in development.

Pat discovered his old prototype after graduating college, and, thinking there was hope for the game, resumed development. The Person moving system was scrapped and replaced with Fun ratings, and the Person cards were changed to dice. These changes completely changed the game, and after plenty of playtesting and card swaps, it led to what is being Kickstarted today.

We have some awesome stuff to give out to our backers! Here's the master list, plus explanations of each component. 

You’re probably wondering where all this money is going after the Kickstarter. Don’t worry, we made a handy visual for answering that exact question:  

Game Printing (73%): Printing the game! This is what this Kickstarter is made to do, so that's what takes up the most of our mathematical pie.

Rewards (10%): Making the flasks, notebooks, and music album songs for all you wonderful people.

Shipping (7%): The game will be fulfilled by Amazon, so shipping costs from there are greatly reduced, but we will be handing the shipping of reward items (flask and notebook) ourselves. 

Fees (10%): Using Kickstarter and Amazon comes with their own fees, but it's nothing we can't handle. 

Before this Kickstarter we were able to fund the printing of 100 game copies, printed from various places and put together ourselves, and made a profit off of its success. With the Kickstarter funds, we’ll be able to get 1,000 copies printed from AdMagic. This will not only be awesome because we won’t have to put boxes together ourselves (which resulted in a lot of glued together fingers), but also because we’ll be able to get a bunch of copies onto Amazon and into physical stores! 

If you are a store interested in stocking Now Everyone Get The F%$# Out!, please email us at starcapgames@gmail.com.

Breaking the $10,000 goal would be absolutely amazing, and we have plans for what we’d do with any extra funds we raise! 

At $10k, the first 1,000 copies of Now Everyone Get The F%$# Out get printed! 120 game cards, 5 rules cards, 2 tokens, 6 black and white pip dice, the rules, all packed up in an awesome telescoping box. 

At $15k, the game gets an upgrade! Instead of black and white pip dice, each game will come with differently colored number dice! 

Gotta be ready for anything! At $20k, the game gets another awesome upgrade: plastic cards! These 100% plastic cards are completely waterproof and easy to clean, protecting them from any sort of party chaos. 

At $30k, we get the Advanced Item Expansion! Introducing new Items with all new abilities: Changing Fun values, negative Fun, and Item traits abound. This goal will add 20 new Item cards that can replace base game Items for added party fun. 

 At $35k, we get the Advanced Action Expansion! Introducing a new world of Actions: Ambient effects, deck searching, and general chaos awaits. This goal will add 20 new Action cards that can either replace existing Actions or be added to the game alongside the Advanced Item Expansion. 

 Want to be able to show this game to your 10 year old cousin or conservative grandparents? A censored version of the game is exactly what you need! In the censored version, all drug, alcohol, and sexual references are removed, and the title won’t swear at you. Don’t worry, all the fun of the game is still intact, and the uncensored version won’t be affected by this goal. 

            
For this section I’m going to break one of the rules of business writing and talk in the singular first person. My name is Pat Roughan, founder of Starcap Games, and I am the creator, designer, artist, and literally everything else for Now Everyone Get The F%$# Out!. 
.
I graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 2015, and set off to make this game right after. I've been gifted with a love of multiplayer games and a love of partying, two worlds which didn't often cross in my college life. I wanted to make a game that both my gamer friends and partier friends could enjoy, so I drew on my experiences in college and made this game. Now, with the help of musical composer Alex Ripple and videographer Bruce Morrison, I set up this Kickstarter to get the game to all of you.

No game can be made in a vacuum, and this one is no different. We've been bringing F%$# Out everywhere we can to make sure it's the best game that it can be! We've got some quotes from various places showing the public reaction to the game:

"Perhaps you’ve been the ultimate partier or even the biggest party-pooper; Now Everyone Get The F%$# OUT! is a game that will allow you to relive your college years from both ends of the spectrum. Even the biggest party animal needs to graduate sometime, right?" -Indietabletop.net

"I've already lived this! Why are you making me live through it again?" -Player at Game Over in Boston

"It's simple, and it's funny, and I love it!" -Player at Playcrafting Boston

"The mechanics are fun, and the theme makes it even better." -Player at the Game Maker's Guild in Boston

"Why don't you make a game about flowers instead?" -creator Pat Roughan's mom

You can see all the players having a good time in the Videos and Images section.

Risks and challenges

The game is already balanced and full of cool art, so all we have to do is get everything to the printer and shipped out to you backers. We're working with AdMagic, printers of many Kickstarter games including Cards Against Humanity and Mobscenity, for printing the game copies. We're also working with Amazon for shipping worldwide.

As always, we have an estimation of when everything will be up and ready, but unforeseen issues are always a possibility. Print delays, shipping issues, and the literal end of the world are sadly very real speedbumps that happen in game development, but if any of these arise we will inform you of it immediately and do everything in our power to get everything back on track.
