About

There is an magical alchemy to a perfect cocktail party: good friends, good drinks, and great conversation. 

A Cocktail Party Game is an alchemical guide to creating an enchanting evening.  A symbolic card game that mixes at-home bartending, the drinking of delicious classic cocktails, and meaningful conversation.

A hybrid of game night, cocktail culture, and hospitality, A Cocktail Party Game has been described as "an instruction manual to make an instant happening," and "a new cornerstone of party games."

We are living in a fast-paced world that shows no signs of slowing down.  As technology advances we are becoming "hyper-connected," though feelings of alienation and detachment are increasingly prevalent in our society.  

Gathering your near and dear for a night in of drinking and gameplay, A Cocktail Party Game is the perfect salve.

You, the Host, buy the game.  You consult with the Host Book and begin to pour over all the tips on how prepare to throw a cocktail party:

How to set up and stock your home bar, thoughts on music, food, ice, glassware, bar tools, and how to get the invitations out there.  

Once your guests arrive you play the game.  Roles are distributed and they change each round: the Bartender, the Maitre D', and the Guest of Honor.  Each round, the Bartender consults the Bartender Book for recipes and creates classic cocktails for others.

The Bartender Book features recipes for classic cocktails, long drinks, seasonal punches and more.

As the game unfolds, new cocktail recipes are tested (our first edition highlights 12 Classic Cocktails).

The combination of alchemy cards unlocks a classic cocktail and a question.

The questions are asked that perhaps have never been asked before.  

We slip into the part of a party that we all love.  We have magically side-stepped the small talk and gotten to know each other in a deeper and more connected way.  

A Cocktail Party Game is creating a new generation of party hosts.

Whether you play the game in its totality, or use it for its parts, A Cocktail Party Game is a must-have for cocktail-enthusiasts, bon vivants, and those who enjoy the beauty and simplicity of an analog conversation. 

We are on schedule to begin shipping in July 2019.

Our early-bird Kickstarter supporters can save over 40% off the cost of the game!  Just our way of saying thank you to the first wave of soon-to-be exemplary Party Hosts.

*A Cocktail Party Game does not include alcohol, but does provide all the tips and lists to build out an impressive home-bar, or alternatively, play with the potent potables you already have!*

Risks and challenges

-We didn't want to launch this campaign until we had a functional prototype, manufacturers lined up, and a production schedule set.

-This is the first product we will be self-producing, and situations will occur that we did not and could not have anticipated.

-That being said, we have a strong team behind us who whole-heartedly believe in A Cocktail Party Game, and are incredibly excited to tackle any challenges come our way. We appreciate your support, and we can't wait until you join the ranks of cocktail party (game) hosts!
