About this project
DID YOU MISS OUT ON THE CAMPAIGN?
In 2011 Drinking Quest: The Original Drinking RPG spawned a hilarious new genre. The Drinking Quest games are a light RPG, a light Drinking Game (with non drinking rules as well) and a heavy parody experience because it's such a ridiculous concept.
Since then two sequels have been released: Yeddy Vedder's Yeti Adventure (2012) and Nectar of the Gods (2013).
The goal of Trilogy Edition is to bring all three games together seamlessly in one package and make all kinds of improvements like:
- Full Colour Cards
- An Improved D4, D6, D8 System (Instead of 3D6) This adds complexity to the game without adding a single new rule.
- Bigger Cards while still staying a good size to bring to the pub
- A Bigger, More Attractive Box
- 3 new Quests (Consisting of 12 cards each which have been unlocked)
- Other smaller improvements (Think remastered Star Trek not remastered Star Wars)
Previously we did an IndieGoGo campaign as a preorder for Drinking Quest 3 so this will be our first full on Kickstarter project (And our first crowd funding campaign using the All-Or-Nothing model).
We've done several runs of games with many runs being sold out almost right away. It's very tough to judge and manage print runs in the tabletop industry. With this Kickstarter we can fill all pre-orders (At the lowest possible price) and avoid selling out right away or having way too many extra games.
So the goal is to make the best game possible but also give great value to anyone who backs as well as giving away INSTANT BONUSES*. With the main tiers listed above you get:
- A physical copy of the game containing up to 216 full colour cards (All with original artwork and content, no duplicate cards), Three dice (four, six and eight sided) a pad of 40 character sheets, instructions and an awesome custom box holding everything neatly inside.
- An instant download of the newly released Drinking Quest comic book (for free) which sells for $5 physically
- An instant download of some fun Drinking Quest wallpaper
- An instant download of "Welcome to the Tabletop" by MC Lars and DQ creator Jason Anarchy (It's a Tabletop anthem about game nights that go nowhere)
*And by instant bonuses we mean within 24 hours upon email request to SteveSummers@DrinkingQuest.com, the rest will be sent at the end of the campaign.
The cards act as the Game Master and tell the story one puzzle piece at a time like Pulp Fiction or Lost. Running an RPG can be a lot of work so with Drinking Quest you can have an RPG that sets up in 2 minutes and doesn't need a GM to run things.
Here are the featured tiers:
$18,000 ADDITIONAL QUEST:
This quest can be added onto any of the three Drinking Quest games contained in Trilogy Edition. Cards include: "Bath Finder", "Hammered Head Shark", "Lots of Shots" "20 Sided Death" and "A Brew Hope"
$22.000 ADDITIONAL QUEST:
This quest is called Grogderp's Dungeon and can be added onto any of the three games contained in Trilogy Edition. It's low on gimmick factor but high on further combining the worlds of Drinking and Role Playing Games! A new dungeon crawl featuring 12 new cards. This quest features cards like "Groggy Gargoyle", "The Nekbeerd" "Keg Mimic" "My Little Dungeon Slime" and "The Desolation of Grog".
$27,000 ADDITIONAL QUEST:
This one has been quite popular already... it's 12 new cards that parody one of my favourite games of all time... let's just call this one KEGA MAN 2! You'll face off against Chug Man, Stool Man, Wench Girl, Fedora Man, Drunken Stupor Man and many others! For fans of retro gamers, more pictures to come!
$33,000 CHUGLOX BOTTLE OPENER:
Everyone with a physical game tier gets a key chain bottle opener featuring the iconic CHUGLOX FACE. Chuglox will give you an approving look every time you open your beer.
$40,000 PERSONALIZED CARD
Series creator Jason Anarchy will draw a funny doodle, thanking you for participating in the campaign and modify an extra card to play differently. This will use one of the old style cards so you can also use it for comparison purposes to see how far the series has come.
Your package will get some PERSONAL ATTENTION!
$48,000 A CLOTH MAP:
You get a really stylized cloth map of the world of Drinking Quest (sometimes referred to as the DQniverse) It's both funny and really cool looking. Very nerd-chic.
What have people been saying about Drinking Quest the last four years?
"It's a Drinking Game and a Tabletop RPG. What more could you want?"
- Wil Wheaton's Tabletop
"If you'd like to get with your RPG-loving friends and spend some time getting a little bit sauced, you could certainly do worse than either Drinking Quest [The Original Drinking RPG] or its sequel, Drinking Quest 2: Yeddy Vedder’s Yeti Adventure."
"Drinking Quest may be the best thing to happen to tabletop ever!"
— Substance TV
"DQ is like taking a liter of Jack, a deck of cards, a pen and paper RPG, some dice, with a Jameson chaser and hitting blend."
"This game appeals to my love of tabletop games, nerd culture, and my rampant alcoholism."
— Troll in the Corner
"For all of its silliness, it holds a solid sense of refinement."
— The Dread Gazebo
Well that's the initial overview of the projects. I plan on answering all of your questions and updating with new content regularly.
Instant bonuses, Stretch Goals and a game that will lead to some of the most epic game nights you'd ever had... Share this Kickstarter through social media or EVEN BETTER back one of these incredible tiers.
Cheers and Please Quest Responsibly :)

*** New Addition: We are now offering exclusive CHUGBLOX miniatures of our loveable mascot Chuglox. You fold it all together and it makes this adorable little guy below:
Risks and challenges
When I released the first game I worked a second job for a year to raise the funds. I made all the mistakes with my own money NOT YOURS!
Since then I've shipped over 10,000 games globally and run a small publishing company to distribute them.
On top of that I'm a trained and experienced Business Management Professional (before Drinking Quest dominated my life) so it's a skill that's rare in the tabletop gaming scene.
The October window is an exaggerated estimate, the games could be ready as early as September.
Also the game and all of the stretch goals aren't anything that would complicate sipping beyond the styles of packages that we're already sending out... this is very much in our comfort zone.
Rest assured I'm more than qualified to run this project and I would be happy to address any further concerns you have.
Beyond that the only thing I would mention is that like any Kickstarter these images are from a prototype and the final version may vary.
Non-Drinking rules also included. If you choose to drink it is your responsibility to drink safely. If you are pregnant, have to drive afterward, have an alcohol problem or have any other reason not to drink alcohol, please use a non-alcoholic substitute.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
It's more like a stripped down Dungeons and Dragons with drinking mechanics and Weird Al style parody.
Muchkin is very broad comedy but Drinking Quest is very layered "Just for nerds" kind of Sword & Sorcery humour.
Muchkin is a great game but I hadn't played it until after I came out with DQ1. My main goal was to make a simple D&D parody that also had drinking involved :)
I wouldn't say it's a pure card game but a card based RPG. The cards don’t interact with each other but they're a tool to dictate the story so you don’t need a GM. You also get a pad of character sheets to keep track of Hit Points, Coins, Experience Points, Chugs, etc. Plus you get three "Pub Green", "Yeti Blue" or "Godly Gold" dice depending on the game. Also there are no duplicated cards. Every card has original artwork and story telling.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. We're the first, the funniest and the most punk rock.
As far as drinking games go it's pretty light, it averages 2 or 3 chugs over 2 or 3 hours. It's a light drinking game and a light tabletop RPG. There are also non-drinking rules.
