About

Try to match what is secretly written with a card from your hand. Your only clue is context!

What would you whisper in the ear of a lover? Probably not what you would yell at Grandma's birthday party!

Write a response to a funny situation card, then rip the quotation out of context and throw it into a hilarious new light! 

Player contribution means the game will never be the same!

From the first prototype on badly cut cardstock, to our most recent design we are sending to our manufacturing team, the game has gone through substantial change, but the core has always been the same. 

Gameplay

Bill reveals a prompt card: "A failed Valentine's card"

Then he writes in secret "I used to love you"

Every other player then adds a card from their hand, without seeing what Bill wrote!

Bill reveals what he wrote, then flips and reads the cards. Now, "I used to love you" becomes:

Everyone votes for their favorite switchuation, then the next player takes the pen and writes for a new prompt. First to five points wins!

Since the players provide the punchline ripped out of context, each time you play, it will never be the same!

The game is simple, but new every time you play!

About The Team

In April 2018, Definitely Not Evil Labs was born. Each member of the lab is a nerd of the highest caliber. Our studio strives to design innovative games to influence the gaming world.

It’s a kind of payback: The nerd world has deeply influenced each of us.

We are excited to be involved in new projects of various stripe and genre, and have five or six games in prototype at any given time.

Relax! We’re Definitely Not Evil.

if you have any questions, concerns, or just want to chat, email us at info@definitelynotevillabs.com or message us on Facebook!

Each game includes 200 Situation cards, rules, a dry-erase marker and our innovative box!

The box design is a major contribution to the game! The Double Speech Bubble is a super-durable dry-erase surface! So, instead of a white board that you might lose, just write inside the speech bubble!! 

The angular cut of the lid lets it rest on the table to display your masterpiece!

Reviews

Christopher Bowden from Winter Moon Games previewed Switchuations after PAX Unplugged. Check it out below then visit his website WWW.WinterMoonGames.com!

Spoiler alert: He really liked it! 

"I played Switchuations with my friends at the local game store.  It was a lot of fun.  A serendipitous find was in the person who felt that they were not creative.  Whenever he wrote a simple prompt, apologetically because he felt he was not creative, those turned out to be incredibly funny and garnered the most laughs.  It's a great game with a simple learning curve."   - Dr. Andrew W.     Rating: 10 / 10

"A varied game of humor and creativity. Great for any group, easy to setup and highly replayable."  - Jacob B.     Rating: 8 / 10

"This game is hilarious. It is as family appropriate and/or raunchy as you want it to be. You create the scenarios as you play. Switchuations is a must-have for every family game room and house party."  - Scott H.     Rating: 10 / 10

"Some of the most original laughs I have ever had! We had such a good time, I honestly wish we could've streamed longer. I can't wait to play Switchuations with my family this Christmas!" - Jaraxlle     Rating: 10 / 10

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge we face is the time in manufacturing. We are working with a leader in the game manufacturing industry to help mitigate this risk. There is always the chance that the manufacturing goes longer than we were quoted. Hopefully our timeline will absorb the potential excess.
Our cards are written, our box is designed, and our art is ready to go. The only other limitation would be with the backers who are helping us write custom cards, if our collaboration ran long.
