frank - brutal honesty in a box (Canceled)
A card game of vulgar combinations played against the judge, inspired by the Game Grumps.
You've all played this kind of game before. Apples to Apples, Cards Against Humanity, you name it. Just people giving cards to a judge, right? That's where frank is different.
True, you do give cards to the judge, but this time you're directing cards toward the judge. Plus, you have to sell your card combination verbally. A game where you get to insult your friends directly to their face. What more could you ask for?
The judge picks the best card combination and a new subject is applied to the next judge. That's it, plain and simple. Frank can be played with three to ten players and each game can take from five to thirty minutes.
Wait, you still don't understand? You're just giving one to four cards to a person, then talking about it! Really? Fine, here's a gameplay video.

People are having a blast playing frank, and rightfully so! You get to play hilarious card combinations to insult, terrify, compliment, arouse (etc., etc.) your friends, all in a small box that you can bring to parties, bars, and family gatherings!
And people are saying all kinds of great things about frank:
"It's kind of brilliant in its simplicity."
-Christine Treski, Chicago Gaming Union
"Haven't had more fun being insulted by my friends."
-Alex & Riley, creators of the card game "I See What You Did There"
We are happy to say that we are working with two of the best companies we could ask for!
Ad Magic, our printer (and the same printer as great games such as Cards Against Humanity and Hogger Logger), will be working to ensure perfect copies of the game are made and sent to our shipping company.
Trusted with numerous Kickstarter campaigns, our EU-friendly shipping company Ship Naked will be handling all of our distribution. And Ship Naked now offers WORLDWIDE SHIPPING!
With more than two million subscribers, the Game Grumps are a popular comedic gameplay commentary group on YouTube that is wrought with frustration, jokes, and name calling. Members of the channel, Arin Hanson, Daniel Avidan, Ross O'Donovan, Barry Kramer, and Suzy Berhow (with significant references to editor Kevin Abernathy and former host Jon Jafari), frequently resort to friendly insults directed toward each other, often in one to four word phrases. Through watching these interactions, the concept for frank was born!
Special thanks to Taylor Armstrong, the animator of our Kickstarter video! If anyone is in need of animation or special effects work let us know and we can put you in contact with him!
