About

BOX OF MEMES IS THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MEMES SINCE THE INTERNET ITSELF. 

This game is a very simple concept that allows people to tell funny and complicated jokes by making memes. We have laid all the groundwork, but we need your help to make our vision a reality.  

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

               

   

 

 

 

                

 

                          

 

House Rules

Along with the game, we will include several variations of the game to change things up.

Expansions

Memes are very topical, so keeping this game up to date is going to be very important. We plan to release an expansion pack every other month, starting  with our first expansion, The Pervert Pack.

Give us Some Money

This product is ready to go! We have a printing company with their finger on the trigger, and we have a fulfillment company ready with a bunch of f*cking boxes. We have expansion packs ready to go. The only problem is that our debit card keeps getting declined. We need the cash to cover the costs of printing and shipping the first batch  games. Luckily for you guys, we already have a finalized product and all we need is your help to launch us into full scale production.

Box of Memes actually came about while Luke and I were working on another game (soon to come). We were waiting on some artwork to come back from a designer when Luke called me with a new idea for a card game.

He explained how Box of Memes would work and we quickly created 100 caption cards as well as 50 photo cards to test the idea. We printed the cards out on card stock paper, cut them into 1 inch by 2 inch squares, and started playing.

The First Prototype
The First Prototype

After the first night, we knew this was a great idea and we needed to jump on board full steam. We started creating caption cards and finding photo cards. The captions were relatively easy to create, however we ran into problems with the photo cards. The photos we originally found were free fair use photos, but unfortunately they were kind of boring, so we started to think of how we could get the rights to some better photos to use in our game.

 Eventually, we figured it out and created the version you see today.

The Team

We are Fundy Games, and more specifically, Luke Landi and Daniel Sutley. Both of us are friends who have a passion for party games and the ever changing internet culture. 

 

 

 

FAQ

Q: How many players does the game support?

A: At least 4, the more the better. 

Q: Why $20,000?

A: This is the cost the printing companies require to do a production run large enough to actually turn a small profit.

Q: What's with all the cats?

A: They manage to get in the way of all of the product photos and wont stop walking on my keybosdf sdasljdlas; angsdkm,. Might as well get them involved.

Q: How long will the game to take to learn?

A: If you can't figure it out in less than two minutes, send us $2,700 and we will fly out and show you.

Q: Who is going to print the cards?

A: Admagic, same as our friends over there with Cards Against Humanity and Exploding Kittens.

Risks and challenges

Some of the challenges we face are living in Bumf*ck nowhere, Montana. We don't have access to very many tech-savy people to help with our product design, web design, video production, prototyping or marketing. Everything has been done in house, and we have been working very hard to mitigate our risks. Obtaining the rights to the photos has been among the largest obstacles we have faced, and it nearly brought this project to a stop. At the moment our biggest fear is our product will be lost in a sea of cheap imitation. This is why we have stayed under the radar for as long as possible.
