About

Human history is full of strange, extraordinary, unbelievable, crazy, weird, amazing, improbable stories! We collected the best ones and created a game to entertain people of any age: the best adventures, the craziest coincidences, the most incredible facts in history are collected here in a card game that is a fun pastime to discover, explore and enjoy these amazing true facts



The rules of the game are stupid-simple: 

  • we need at least two players - but it is best enjoyed in a group!
  • one player is the master: he is the only player allowed to read the full story on the back of the card. He will read out loud the short fact stated on the front of the card and will guide the other players in discovering the complete story
  • the other players need to guess the whole story starting from the fact on the front side of the card and by asking questions to the master
  • the master may help the players by giving hints (e.g. by using the key words written in bold on the back of the card)

Each card contains a real story. Names, dates, and all the key facts are described up to a level of detail that makes the game enjoyable but not over-complex. If you want to get more details about a story, the information on the cards gives you a good foundation to help you searching even more information online


Engage your audience in the adventure of discovering amazing facts! Choose to make the guessing very easy.. or very hard!
Engage your audience in the adventure of discovering amazing facts! Choose to make the guessing very easy.. or very hard!

It is the master's storytelling that will engage the players in the adventure of discovering the story! Give out hints, tickle their imagination, make them curious and adapt the level of difficulty! 

Keep your audience on the right path by disclosing just enough details to trigger ideas and hypothesis, or amaze them with new details that make them rethink their assumptions :)


A game for everybody!
A game for everybody!

 
This is a game for everybody: from 6 to 99 years old players! That means no gory, disgusting, violent, sad, or painful stories in the game. History is full of facts we don't want to hear about, let alone to remember: we paid extra care not to include them in the game to create a fun and enjoyable experience for any kind of player

How you want to play it.. is up to you! 

The rules of the game are more guidelines rather than rules! We went through several stories with family and friends and we experimented with different rules and different types of players - we had great fun spicing up the game :) 

Here some suggestions:

- the master can only answer yes or no

- the players only have a limited amount of time to guess

- the master cannot speak, just mime the answers

- the players cannot even read the short fact on the front of the card but only look at the image below it

- each good guess on the story is rewarded by the master (e.g. with a candy) and when the story is guessed the player with most candies is the winner

- each wrong guess will be punished by the master :D

- the master needs to be drunk (this version of the game is definitely the toughest)



A fun pastime comes with a refreshing drink :)

We enjoyed playing the game, and we though that you may enjoy it too! It's an easy and fun game to be played in any occasions: during a car trip, at home in a rainy evening, after a good lunch in the sun, .. any time is a good time for having fun together and for discovering these strange, curious stories :)

Risks and challenges

We can't foresee any risk - the game is designed, tested and ready to be printed. We will run an extra round of print tests from different suppliers once the campaign gets funded, to guarantee optimal quality of the product. If you have any specific question or concern, please write us!
