About this project

Lo, a new expansion for Monikers draws near! 

This time, we've teamed up with the folks at Shut Up & Sit Down, the best board game site on the entire internet. They wrote 100% of this expansion, and the cards they came up with are hilarious and unexpected in all the ways Monikers cards should be hilarious and unexpected. It's sort of uncanny.

Part of the idea behind Monikers has always been to take a game that has existed basically forever, and to make it feel like you and your friends just came up with the idea that night. It's really hard to get that tone right, but Paul and Philippa and Matt and Quinns completely nailed it. I mean AHHHHHH LOOK AT THESE CARDS THEY'RE SO GOOD

And if you've never heard of Monikers, the rules are really simple: get your friends to guess the name on a card. The twist is that you play over three rounds, and each time, you have to give clues in different ways. So in the 1st round, you can say or do anything. In the 2nd, you can only use one word. And in the 3rd, you can only do charades.

The same cards are used in each round, so by the end of the game you've made up a bunch of silly jokes together.

 

 

  

 

The Shut Up & Sit Down Nonsense Box comes with 112 hilarious new cards. It's only $10. Which is legitimately a steal and probably dumb of us to keep doing. And like always, you can combine it with all your other Monikers sets, or just play it as a standalone party game.

You'll be cry-laughing they're so good.

And like usual, we're working with some amazingly talented artists to illustrate some of the cards. Artists like:

Oh and ALSO as a thank you, for every pledge we're including a bonus pack of 12 Hopelessly Stupid Fourth Rounds For Monikers for free. Stuff like getting behind a couch and doing hand puppets. Or doing charades in pairs, but one person has to pose the other person. They're hilarious and weird and perfect for when you're having such a good time that you want a game to go on for just a little bit longer.

 

Basically, you can get any configuration of Monikers stuff you want. That *should* cover everything—but if you're looking for multiple copies or whatever, just shoot us a message and we'll sort that out for you!

And for international backers: shipping includes customs.


Oh and if you've gotten this far, there is a 90% chance you are wondering about a MONIKERS STORAGE BOX. We're planning a Kickstarter for that early this summer! It's going to be filled with some really weird stuff and, we assure you, quite capable of holding every Monikers card ever made. 

We promise we're making it.

Risks and challenges

We've shipped tens of thousands of copies of Monikers to backers all over the world. So despite our generally being bad at business, we've gotten pretty good at this.

The SUSD folks are already finished writing the cards, so once the Kickstarter ends, we’ll be able to submit the game to our printer right away. Barring any big setbacks, everyone will have their copies on the estimated date.

We're using the same printer (<3 Ad Magic) and fulfillment service (<3 Blackbox) as we always do, and feel completely certain they’re up to the job.
