About

The game has players compete to match up their funniest TWSS phrases to outrageous situations. Using the popular "best match" game mechanic for it's simplicity and "house-rule" versatility, this party game features a hilarious theme that everyone can instantly get in on.

 We’re asking for your support to develop, print and distribute our game. Each That’s What She Said Game® will come with at least 350 cards – 75 setups and 275 phrases in high-quality print and packaging (we may add more as we continue to play-test new fan-submitted content)

  • You can download a 100 card "print and play" sample of the game by clicking here. You can also download a B&W version of the game here. If you want to print the "backs" -- you can get those here. Enjoy the game and we invite you to share your photos and experience on our Facebook!

Why are we Kickstarting?

Everyone instantly sees the potential of a game based around “That’s What She Said"-- and the tremendous amount of feedback and support a crowd-sourced platform like Kickstarter provides will allow us to refine our product and exceed all expectations.

The funds we need will go towards printing, distribution, game design, small amounts of food and drink for our volunteer play-testers, copyrights, and promotion. (more detailed cost estimates can be found in the FAQ) All of these are necessary for creating a successful product, and that's what we want this to be!

The Game

There are two kinds of cards, black Setup cards and red Phrase cards.

Each Setup is a funny situation or topic that often leaves players laughing before they even see their cards.

· When I want to get laid, I bust into the room naked and yell  _______

· During Yoga, Sharon's instructor walked up and gave her this tip: _______

· Things Said During a Prostate Exam

Players then attempt to play their funniest Phrase card to win the round. The Phrase cards are innuendo answers that match the Setup cards.

· “You’re going to need to use both hands.”

· “Touch this.”

·  "Stand up and grab your ankles!

Sometimes the winning card is the one with the most intellectual irony to the situation, and sometimes it's just the one with the most outrageous punch line. The judge's personality will influence your strategy.

 The player acting as judge awards a point to the funniest answer.  The first player to accumulate an agreed upon number of points wins. In our play tests, the game was a very effective "ice-breaker" for pre-funking with new groups, and usually lasted about a half hour to an hour.

Shipping

Each set costs $25, but if you want us to ship it to you, you'll need to pledge $5 more.

Risks and challenges

One of the remaining challenges is nailing the graphic design. We are not amazing artists, and initially our concept was more traditional with bubbly letters and comical characters. Early feedback led us to a design that is more simple, black, and streamlined as "adult". While it does look slick, one concern is whether or not the design still shouts "this is a fun, lively game!". We'll be looking for additional fan-feedback throughout the process, and with a successful campaign we'll be able to take our work to a professional designer to update before the final press. Most people don't care what the box looks like as long as the game is fun to play, but we feel it is important that the design instantly reflects the tone and feel of playing the game.

The challenge is the same all projects face -- producing and delivering the product on time. Our campaign ends in January, in which we've planned for an additional 3-week safety net to complete the final details. After the initial buffer we will place the order, with an estimated 6-8 weeks to receive the final product. -- We'll keep our fans posted along the way, but knowing this is a common pitfall, we are keen on overcoming these obstacles before they get in the way.

If you have any other questions about the game, we'd love to answer them! Contact us at twssgames@gmail.com
