Kid History started with a question: Do kids really understand the stories we tell them? To answer that question, we started a YouTube channel where we would record kids telling stories and then we would act it out ourselves. The results were epic.
Fast forward a few years and we asked ourselves another question: Can we bring the same experience we have on set to our fans in their homes? We decided that the best way to attempt this challenge was to make a game. We went through a few variations of games; some were fun but none of them captured the same enjoyment we have when working with kids and their personalities. We wanted people to create their own zany mash-ups of reality and imagination. Then it happened.
We stumbled upon a hilarious, addictive, and easy-to-play game that not only our fans will love, but anyone who has ever laughed at something a kid said. We created the first mockup of "Kid History" by printing off 15 famous situations in history and pop culture as well as 60 of our favorite kids quotes from our YouTube videos. We played a sample game in our studio and within seconds we were all laughing and competing to create the funniest combinations of real quotes and kids quotes.
How To Play
At the beginning of each round a new “historian” is selected by moving clockwise around the room. All players draw a new card to bring their total up to eight cards. The game is played until a pre-determined amount of points are earned by a single player (typically five).
In case you have any doubts, let us tell you that from playing this many times ourselves, it is hilarious, different every time, and provides hours of fun.
Help Us Make This Game
In order to bring production costs down (and make the game affordable for everyone) we need to complete a large production run. For the design, printing, assembling, packaging, and shipping we need to raise $20,000.
We need your help to make this project happen. We've created some unique rewards that we think you will love. We also have some stretch goals to make this game even better, including adding more cards and creating expansion packs. On top of pledging your support, please share our project with your friends via facebook and twitter.
Alright guys, we'd really like to take this game up a notch. If we can reach the first two stretch goals we will add 100 cards to every Kid History game, making it more fun for everyone. If we reach our 3rd stretch goal we will create an expansion pack allowing people to add more crazy history and quote cards to their games. The best way to reach the stretch goals is to share our Kickstarter with everyone you know and encourage people to pledge! WE BELIEVE IN YOU!
Risks and challenges
We might all die, yes that is a possibility. But in the event that we don't all die, this game will be completed on schedule and shipped directly to your mailbox. Our manufacturer is ready to go and just waiting for us to say the word. Our mission is simple, create a fun game that you and all your friends enjoy. We hope you will pledge and share it with your friends.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
