About

The oldest player starts the game as Judge. He or she reads a Dilemma and now everyone has to come up with their best survival plan. How? By using the items in your hand!


These dilemmas can get pretty crazy, so you’ll have to combine & modify your items (i.e. fix them together!) to make it out alive. Maybe you can use your hockey skate to sharpen your broom handle into a spear!

In the middle of the table, there are 3 additional item cards up for grabs. Better grab that canister of tear gas before your opponent does!

There are surprises built into the game to keep you on your toes. It wouldn’t be the game of resourcefulness without a real challenge!

After the 30 second timer runs out, everyone takes turns pitching his or her survival plan to the judge. Your plan can be ridiculous or realistic, or completely ridiculous - whatever you think the judge will like best.

After the judge has heard all the pitches, they pick the survival plan they like the best. That player survives the dilemma (while the rest of you sadly perish!) and also gets a point! 

The mantle of judge is passed on, and a new round begins!

The standard mode of play is best suited for 4-6 players. This works perfectly for your typical game night configuration - around the dining room table with friends or family! 

There's also Road Trip mode for  2+ players! It's a loose mode of play (think of Highway Alphabet or Would You Rather!) that gets you talking and laughing together! We've also seen this work for date night, no joke!

We call this Party Mode. To play with a large group, split players into pairs at the start of the game and play as you normally would, with one pair taking turns as the judge!

We call this Game Show mode, and it’s great for large groups! There’s a host who acts as the consistent judge, while teams of 3-5 compete in the way you might see trivia play out at your local brewery or rotary club!

If you want to follow along with our campaign (trust us, you do!), then follow us on Facebook or Instagram or both! See you there!

Kickstarter is great for a project like this because it allows us to interact directly with fans and accurately gauge the interest in this new game!

This means that instead of just ordering a small print run with no bells and whistles, we can see how the campaign goes and add all kinds of cool stuff — like more cards, bonus expansions, and all kinds of other stuff that we couldn’t justify with a direct to retail launch.

It also allows us to interact directly with backers and let everyone have a voice in the finished product. And to top it all off, the price you pay at during the Kickstarter is cheaper than the game will be at retail.

So for helping us figure out the demand for this new game, by supporting the game, you get a ton of exclusive goodies, you get the game before everyone else, and you don’t pay as much as you would for people that get the game at retail.

And if you have any more questions though, about the game, the campaign, our favorite movies, or anything else, feel free to leave your comments below and we’ll get back to you as quick as we can. And thanks for checking out the game!

Risks and challenges

Secret Level Entertainment has 5 years of experience in the entertainment industry. Even though this is our first game project, we've handled the publishing and fulfillment of music projects and book projects via Kickstarter, so we are well acquainted with all of the risks and problems that can arise during production of a project like this.

We hope to try some cool new things with this game, and are ready to take on all the challenges that come with these new ideas.

That said, the main risks are as follows:

1. Should this campaign blow up, we may be flooded with more orders than expected. In this case, we would use the extra money to make a bigger manufacturing order and then likely hire a fulfillment company to ship our product, instead of doing it ourselves.

2. Shipping costs have a way of sneaking up on you. While we've increased our project's goal to account for the heavy cost of shipping card games, there is still a slight risk that the amount raised could fall slightly short of what's needed to both order AND ship all the product. However, we have sufficient credit should that occur, and will happily incur the cost since we can recoup it with subsequent sales to retail stores.
