Paraphrase: Songs In Other Words

$7,220

156

Can you solve it? 

Who sang it?

Can you sing it?

Remember those songs you grew up listening to on the radio, on your turntable, 8 track tape (in stereo), or your iPod? Calling the Wolfman (Clap For The Wolfman*) or your local DJ and and playing a tribute song to your bestie? And how, when you now hear those songs, heartwarming, smile-inducing memories come flooding back? 

In Paraphrase: Songs In Other Words you have to recall the name of hit songs from various decades while only having a few seconds in which to do so. The clues, however, are a paraphrase of the song titles so they aren't as easily recognizable. Can you do it? Can your team members do it? 

Wha'choo talkin' 'bout, Willis? 

Here's an example: Authentic pigmentations**.

Clues are included on each card in case you need a hint. But watch out! Using those hints deducts from the points you can earn. Bonus points are handed out for naming the band or artist and, if your team can sing a portion of the song - out loud, you can earn some big points -- and some good hearty laughs, too. 

Oh, and did we say you had to do it before time runs out? 

Paraphrase: Songs In Other Words is the ultimate party game that will bring a song to your heart, and possibly get it stuck in your head as you solve it. Name the song and artist who sang it and belt it out for everyone's enjoyment!

A complete evening of laughter and musical memories for 3 or more players included in each and every box.

*Clap For The Wolfman, Guess Who, 1974

**Answer to the paraphrase: True Colors, Cyndi Lauper

Risks and challenges

FULFILLMENT

We try our best to always be transparent about every phase of the Kickstarter process, especially with fulfillment. Shipping is an expense that we are going to share with you. For the Paraphrase: Songs In Other Words campaign, we will be subsidizing the shipping costs so that it is more affordable for everyone.

This means we can provide reduced price shipping throughout the US and the world. We will be using various fulfillment companies from around the world to further lower the costs so that you won't have to pay import taxes/VAT (US, Canada, Australia, UK and EU backers only).

Risks and challenges
This is Flying Lemur Game Studio's third Kickstarter. And we're thrilled to be bringing this great game to your table. It is our goal to be fully transparent and produce the best game possible.

While it's our company's second Kickstarter, as individuals this is not our first rodeo. We have been involved in over 30 successful Kickstarter campaigns, as we have worked with other publishers over the past number of years. So we are not new to the process and you can feel comfortable in knowing we are knowledgeable in what it takes to bring a game from concept to reality.

However, nothing comes without risks. Delayed print runs; games held at port for an inordinate amount of time; even weather on the high seas. We promise to keep you fully aware of everything that transpires from now through the last fulfillment so you are not left out of the loop.
