What is CORKED?

It's a party game for a group of fun people where everyone plays on every turn and no one ever performs alone. Oh, and there is a cool bag to carry your beverage.

It's not a "drinking game." It's a party game that goes well with drinks..

Why it's awesome.

  • Every player plays on every turn. No downtime.
  • No one ever performs alone. The only time you ever act ridiculous is in the company of a friend.
  • CORKED provides constant laughter, and complete games only last 20-30 minutes. (most people play again)
  • Everyone learns to play in 2 minutes. Easy instructions mean that time is spent playing... not learning how to play.
  • You can not only play while drinking, but you can WIN while drinking. (drink responsibly. if you don't drink or you are under 21, we recommend Southern style Sweet Tea.)
  • It comes with a cool tote bag to carry your bottle (if you don't have a bottle, you can use the sleeve and bag to carry something else.... like Sausage!)
  • The scoring system allows the players to strategically control the game so that your freak-show, over-performing friend doesn't win every time.
  • Content! We worked long and hard to make these game cards really great. Every element was carefully thought out and tested with a diverse crowd of insanely creative humans.  

How do you play?

When it's your turn, you select 2 other players to perform for the entire group. These 2 players jointly perform for the crowd. One player acts out one part of the card and the other players acts out the other... Silently and Simultaneously! The 2 separate words being acted out must be guessed and combined to form one correct answer. Everyone else is guessing aloud for the entire turn. This gets to be really funny on several levels! (Caution: you may wet yourself) Once a complete, 2-part, correct answer is guessed, the performers move on to the next items on the card. This continues until all 4 items are guessed, or until the time expires. At the end of the turn, points are awarded to the players who performed well, and to those who guessed correctly. Strategy for performer selection evolves as the game move on, allowing the entire group some control in who is more likely to score points on a given turn.

What's in the package?

Why we need the funds

We need your contribution to manufacture the game in large quantities and be able to share it with the world. Raised funds will go into manufacturing physical products, and create a team to execute the distribution of the goods.

What we need from you

It's simple. We need you to get a game, and play it with your peeps! We are confident that it will grow substantially if people are playing. Give it as a gift during the holidays too.

 Thanks for checking out the project!

Risks and challenges

Challenges will come. Manufacturing and distribution strategies will evolve as we grow. We know that this will be a work in progress. We only guaranteed a small number of games for the initial push. Hopefully, this will smooth out the learning curve a bit before needing to move large numbers. We have an insanely creative and driven team, and even have a little business savvy on the side. We can make this work.

The other big issue is that the gaming industry is insanely competitive and dominated by a few mega-giant corporations with unlimited budgets. We hope to successfully grow the CORKED brand by grass-roots efforts, making people laugh and spending quality time together. We plan to succeed because of quality. We have a notebook full of ideas for expansion packs for this version, as well as many concepts for other new games.
