Wet Blanket Card Game

$2,800

You are at a party. The host announces that everyone is going to be playing shaving cream twister and you start to sweat. This is not what you were promised. You must get out. How do you get out?!! You quickly devise a plan...

Wet Blanket is a card game that has players try to break up a party so that the attendees go to the player's parties instead. Send an angry swarm of bees or a barrage of angry trolls to break up the main party! 

The people that leave the party go to your party where things are less sociable. Once everyone has left the central party you count up people in everyone's personal parties and whoever has the most wins!

Wet Blanket!

Gameplay: Players employ a variety of event cards that will make people leave a party or return to it. For example, if someone plays the Talking during the movie card then two people will leave the central party and enter your own side party. If someone plays the There's a trampoline card then two people (total) would return to the central party from the side parties.

Other types of cards:

Food and music cards: Another way of making people leave the main party is by playing a food or music card. If certain people in the main party don't like the food or music you choose to play then they leave to join your own party. If there are people in anyone's parties that like the food or music played then they return to the main party. It's a double edged sword!

Veto Cards: Veto cards are there to deny the type of music or food played. When you play a veto card you get to decide what music and food are presented. Veto cards can also veto other veto cards!

People Cards: People cards show you the party goers name, likes/dislikes and other info. All of these are important to consider when making a wild move in the game.

What it comes with: Wet Blanket comes with 108 full color front and back playing cards in a fancy tuck packet. The cards are 330gsm superior smooth cards. That means they feel good and should last a good long time. Their dimensions are 2.48''×3.46'' (63mm×88mm), considered a standard playing card size. There are cards that show the party goers, music and food cards, veto cards, relationship shifting cards and disaster cards that players use to destroy the central party and grow their own side party. We also have a reward level that gives an additional 54 cards with more people and awkward situations.

Who we are: Binary Cocoa is a small (3 people) game company that specializes in family friendly games. Other titles that we have released include Collider, Hexapod Defense Force and BOCO. Information about all of these games can be seen at binarycocoa.com. 

Where we are in the process of making Wet Blanket: The game is in the late stages of testing and balancing. We have all of the cards drawn and colored with text for each card and have produced a complete deck using our final production processes. The game is playable but we feel it should be thoroughly balanced before we are comfortable releasing it to the public. We also want to make sure that the game is completely devoid of any grammatical errors with clear instructions. Additionally, we are refining the design and layout of the cards to make the game easier to play and easier to see. We need your help to make this game a reality for all of us that get a chuckle out of social events.

Risks and challenges

Every project has some unforeseeable challenges. We've tried to eliminate this risk as much as possible, mostly through being patient and doing our research before launching this Kickstarter campaign.

We have already partnered with (and tested) a reputable card manufacturing company that will ensure we can produce a large quantity of decks quickly and will assist us with product fulfillment. We have established pricing on a per deck basis and have calibrated our rewards accordingly. This is to ensure that if we are funded at any level, everyone gets their rewards quickly and we can avoid production delays.

The game itself is very near completion. We have produced a complete playable deck (over 100 cards), and have walked through the entire production process. What remains is gameplay refinement, resolving any grammatical errors, and any art/layout updates. In short, even if the course of events became extremely stacked against us, we could repeat the production run we've already done and produce a playable game that many people have already enjoyed.

While this is our groups first physical game, this is not our first game. We have produced and successfully released multiple computer games, each one more successful than the previous and all to good reviews. Our most recent game is available on Steam and currently has a 96% positive review rating (collidergame.com). We finish projects, and we put the gaming community first. Having released a few games, we've learned how to quickly adjust to changing conditions and how to take feedback. In short, we finish what we start.
