WTF is FML? 

FML! The Game is an interactive party in a box that puts you in the driver’s seat in a simulation of life. With FML moments around every corner, it’s bound to be much more eventful than the one you’re leading today.

The goal of the game is to have the best life story - will you be the dancing doctor living in your parent's basement, or the successful drug dealer who retires on your own private island?

Back us today to receive the first batch of the games at $5 off the future price! Day One backers receive free shipping!

Cool People's Opinions: 

 "They took a game I've always hated and made it fun. Fun enough I let them quote me on it." 

- B Cavello, Product Development & Community Director, Exploding Kittens

“The best drinking game I’ve ever played, even though it may not technically be a drinking game.”

- Yoon Kim, Founder & CEO, Blogs for Brands

You don't just roll the dice in FML! The Game - there are opportunities to be creative around every turn. In the game you will sing, tell stories, rap, dance, and make memories - check out some of the examples:

 

How to Win:

To win FML! The Game you have to make lemons into vodka lemonade - that is, take the "FML" moments that happened and turn them into a great story!

After everyone retires, you'll each tell your "FML Life Story" - a hyperspeed explanation of why your life was the most unforgettable. How much did you make? What (or who) did you do? What made you say... FML? 

When everyone has finished, vote on the winner!

What's Included?

All this plus paper money, a rule sheet, and box!

The Origin 

One Wine Wednesday, we wanted to play a board game but couldn't think of the right game to play. We wanted something that was relevant to our lives, allowed us to make fun of each other, and was easy enough to be played after drinking 5 beers.  

From that night, FML! The Game was born. 

This is our second Kickstarter, we raised $10K the first time, learning a ton, but didn’t hit our goal. We’re back again and have since gotten pricing down $5 per game, and our minimum game orders down significantly, which allows for a more achievable goal. Our margins are slim with this campaign, but we've heard from many people that they need some FML in their life, so we brought the party back!

Thank you! This game is only possible with your help! - Jay & Mike

Risks and challenges

This is our second Kickstarter and we learned a hell of a lot from the first one.

We are taking more control over the manufacturing process and are working with the fine folks at Ninja Games for the board and card manufacturing.

Design and content are 95% complete, all that will change is box art and whatever great ideas you come up with during the campaign!
