About

The Best Game in the World is a wildly fun interactive card game for parties of 6 or more. TBGITW is a new take on some classic party games -- Cards Against Humanity, The Salad Bowl Game, Celebrity -- elevated by the personal inside-jokes from the obscene heads of you and your friends. 

The game is played by two teams of 3+ players over 3 distinct rounds, where each team takes 1-minute turns trying to get their teammates to guess the clues written on the game cards in order to earn points.

The game's special sauce is derived from the broad range of the clues -- some cards come preprinted with phrases or words spanning a wide range of topics, and other clues are created by YOU, based on the personal or offensive inside jokes that will have your crew in stitches (hopefully not literally). Unlike other similar party games, each round isn't stuck on a single theme or tone, as the clues will range from lewd obscenities to culturally relevant or esoteric trivia and current events to the personal or shared experiences and inside jokes of the crew playing the game. This wide range of clues ensures each game is wildly dynamic, and will leave everyone on the edge of their seat (assuming they're not already on the floor laughing). 

Hilarity ensues when having to think of ways to get your teammates to guess each card's clue, either by describing it or acting it out. Each round gets progressively funnier because the cards are reused from prior rounds, so you have to recall the already used clues and evolve your hints in more outlandish ways. 

Each Best Game in the World includes:

  • 300 Game Cards (240 pre-printed clues + 60 'make-your-own" cards)
  • 2 wet erase markers
  • 1 one minute timer
  • Game instructions

 

 

Each player picks 5 cards to add to the game deck. Either choose pre-printed clues, or write your own clues that your fellow game players will find funny. The best clues (read: belly laughing hysteria) are ones that are personal, can be acted out but not in the most obvious way. For instance, that friend Justin (the other Justin, definitely not the game creator) who has tiny nipples would be funny to act out.

There are 3 distinct rounds, where each team takes a 1 minute turn where a card reader must try to get his or her teammates to guess the clue on the drawn card. After the clue is correctly guessed, this card goes into the deck saved for the next round, and the card reader moves onto a new card. The goal is for each team to get as many correctly guessed cards each round in order to earn points. 

Get your teammates to guess the clue without saying the words on the card (a.k.a Taboo).

Get your teammates to guess the card by acting out the clue (a.k.a Charades)

 

Just say one word (that isn't written on the game card).

The Best Game helps surface all those obscene & obscure thoughts stuck inside your friends' heads and leads to uncontrollable bouts of laughter in response to the weird & outlandish ways you'll have to describe or act them out.

 

The Best Game in the World is the perfect game for groups of friends or family that want to laugh together, get to really know each other, and create long lasting memories & inside jokes based on the unsavory & unique ideas stuck inside your head.

 

 

 

The Best Game in the World is the brain child (er, sickly 2nd cousin) of Justin Seidenfeld & Megan Button. They met in Hong Kong as expats living there for work. Justin, a New Yorker working in manufacturing, was introduced to the classic Salad Bowl game by Megan, a South African teacher, who played with all of her South African friends. It was a whole barrel of laughs. 

Fast forward 2 years: now, having moved to Brooklyn and a soon to be married, Justin & Megan introduced a modified version of the game to their American friends, who got equally addicted to it as it had evolved into a more outlandish, offensive & personalized iteration of the original game. The clues had gotten more & more unwholesome, and the shenanigans that came from playing got more and more hilarious. It was from these weekend hangouts and after-dinner-party sessions that Justin & Megan realized they needed to spread this happiness, and having the international perspective from around the globe, are confident that this game is undoubtedly The Best Game in the World. 

 

Risks and challenges

We have our manufacturing & distribution partners ready to go! We're keeping the scope of our campaign simple, limiting it just to the first version of The Best Game set, so we don't run into any unforeseen delays.
