About

(CLICK THE PLAY BUTTON ABOVE TO FEEL SPECIAL WHILE READING THIS)

(Click it again to turn it off, if it makes you feel too special)

You Lie! is a category based card game where knowing your stuff doesn't necessarily matter. Each player gets a turn to draw from the deck and play a battle of the wits game against an opposing player in a face off round.

Long story short, the person with the most category cards at the end of the game wins. The outcome of the game is affected by game modifiers which are shuffled into the deck. The full rules are in the graphics below.

Drinking Rules - The person who loses the face-off has to drink. It's as simple as that - each round is quick, so this also makes for a great drinking game. 

(As the game is based upon the winner having the most category cards, not everybody has to drink to participate)

PLAY TESTS

We have play tested this game over and over again to make sure that the game works incredibly well, has an amazing replay value, and will continue to be fun. 

We have also researched very deeply into making sure that this game plays well with alcohol. Long story short - It does. It really does.

CAMPAIGN

We just need your help now to make this game a reality. We feel that it could be the next big thing in the card game market, due to it's simplicity, expandability and ability to stay with current trends.

We have set a September delivery date, as we believe that it's best to under-promise and over-deliver, as opposed to over-promise and under-deliver. The game and artwork are complete, and we just need to do a few tweaks and click send to our manufacturers to get the cards printed.

We have included the option to purchase a print 'n' play set, so that if you would prefer to print the game at home, you can! This tier comes free with the full decks, so that you will always have the game with you!

STRETCH GOALS

We will be adding stretch goals to the campaign as it progresses. Our goal is to get as many backers as possible (of course), to then reduce manufacturing costs more and more, which will give more value to our backers.

Stretch goals will be added here and on social media throughout the campaign.

MANUFACTURE AND DISTRIBUTION

We have managed to source the best of the best with regards to manufacture and distribution.

Both the manufacturing company and distribution company have plenty of experience in their relevant field, and provide premium products delivered safely.

SOCIAL MEDIA

We would love for you to get involved and to hear your suggestions! Find us here:

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing the game itself should be a breeze - as it's a card game and it's being manufactured by a large company which does this every day of every week, there will be no issue there. Distribution will also be handled by a large shipping company, so as long as everything falls into place, there should be no issues in sending you your final game.

If we get to a level of backing where we can really make the opening of the box a piece of art, then we will be developing a new card structure, but that would honestly be the most complicated bit.

We want this game to be of the same quality for whoever plays it, and don't want to overcomplicate the rewards section with early bird specials and strange rewards. This is why we have made sure that the price point is set correctly, and backers have a simple choice of what they are purchasing.
