About

What is a fun & simple way where people can become more educated & familiar on all the intriguing worldly events, customs and cultural traditions going on around our globe while having a fun time doing so? 

That question is the basis of how Earthly Scenarios was conceived!
That question is the basis of how Earthly Scenarios was conceived!

The Earthly Scenarios game probes how adventurous you think you are, and how adventurous your friends & family think you are with its worldly content of real life scenarios! 

Our social initiative behind this project is to get people from all walks of life more educated and familiar on all the intriguing worldly events, customs and cultural traditions going on in different corners of the globe - while having a fun time doing so!

The major component of the game is the Scenarios Card, which contains 3 examples of worldly occurrences going on around the globe.

Certain Keywords are in bold & are underlined. If something intrigues you, throw the keyword into a search engine (like google) to look it up and learn more about it!

The Back of Each Scenarios Card contains an image in a Post Card format. That image relates to the subject matter of the first question.

Players take turns reading each of their three scenarios aloud to the other players and then the other players try to predict how likely the reader is to participate in that scenario. The reader will secretly choose one of the four answers and everyone else predicts what answer they chose.

 You'll Encounter Questions like:

Would you go Skijoring? -A Norwegian activity of Skiing on snow while being pulled by a horse
Would you go Skijoring? -A Norwegian activity of Skiing on snow while being pulled by a horse
Would you eat some Beondegi? -A Korean food of Cooked Silkworms
Would you eat some Beondegi? -A Korean food of Cooked Silkworms

Predict correctly and points are gained! Every time 3 points are accumulated, an Earthly Card can be drawn, which contains certain clauses on them that you can use on yourself to get ahead, or against other players to keep them down.

The learning aspect of our game is how we differentiate ourselves from other 'party' games. Too many party games rely on crude, cheap toilet humor to intrigue its players. WE DON'T! Instead we rely on factual Worldly events going on around our globe, making it a great game for a classroom environment, but also a great game in a party environment with friends & drinks.

While learning about such events, players will try to decipher how likely their peers are to participate in said events. The game stirs up a lot of fruitful conversations on all the worldly events going on and around the globe and about the boundaries of ones comfort zone.

After countless months of research formulating the content of this game, as well as countless more months on top of that exhaustively play-testing it, we're now finally ready to put Earthly Scenarios out to the public here on Kickstarter! The game hits on all the following points:

SHIPPING!

Since this is a worldly game, it only makes sense that we should offer shipping for this game to any location in the world. We have partnered with Quartermaster Logistics in order to get that accomplished. Shipping rates are as follows:

Risks and challenges

This campaign is relatively straightforward - you back the project and you'll get the appropriate version of the game. And we've tried to keep it straightforward for a reason - to minimize potential risks and challenges we may encounter. For those reasons, T-Shirts and any extra 'goodies' are not offered, just the game. We will also be working with reputable and well established manufacturing and fulfillment partners to get the game produced & shipped to backers, so we're confident that we are in good hands.

With that said, this is my first Kickstarter Project. So it would be naive of me to think that a few hiccups won't happen along the way. If such a thing were to happen, I would need to ask for you patience while we get the game delivered, as that is probably the absolute worst that can happen - a delay in shipments.
