About

OVERVIEW

Secret Words is the game show style word guessing party game for 4 or more players. Try your best to get your teammate to guess the Secret Words on your card, but there is just one catch: you can only use a single word.  Knowing how your teammate thinks is the key to winning. Each team has only 60 seconds to guess as many words as they can. If any of the core rules are broken you lost your points streak and have to start again.

If you have ever enjoyed playing Pictionary, Charades, Taboo or Catch Phrase then you will love Secret Words.

In an effort to keep the costs down for Secret Words, we have chosen a standard card stock (270gsm). If we can reach our stretch goal we will be able to upgrade this to a premium 305gsm card stock.

STRUCTURE, CORE RULE & SETUP OF PLAY

Setup

1. Split into teams of two.
2. Shuffle the deck.


Core Rules

There are 4 core rules to Secret Words.

   1. Any clues given must only be a single word.
   2. The clue must not form a part of the Secret Word.
   3. No physical hints may be given. (e.g. gesturing or pointing to something)
   4. Only one clue per guess.  (You must wait until teammate has made a guess)


Structure of play

1. First Team draws card from deck and starts timer.
2. Starting with the top word, give a single word clue.
3. Team mate guesses the Secret Word. Continuing back and forth until the word is guessed. (Clue, Guess, Clue, Guess…)
4. After a correct guess, Clue Giver moves to next word on the card.
5. If all words on card guessed or Clue Giver wishes to pass, then they may draw a new card.
6. Play continues to the timer stops, the team then counts the points scored in the round

After 5 rounds the team with the most points wins.

STRETCH GOALS

Expansion Set of Cards (+1100 Copies backed) - Additional 50 cards will be printed and shipped with all pledge levels.

Digital Game timer $2700 - A digital timer will be shipped with the game.

EXTRA INFORMATION

Create a Card Disclaimer

We are happy to open up the game to you, the backers, and have you put your own personal touch to Secret Words. After all, Kickstarter is all about crowd funding and building a community, and what better way to build a community than having backers collaborate with us on the game? If your backer level entitles you to make a card, we’ll work together to make something that will work great for the game. Ultimately, though, as the publisher and designer, we get the final say.

Risks and challenges

The game is fully designed and ready to be sent to the printers.

The only delay to this project that could occur is during printing or shipping from the manafacturer. I have timed the ending of the campaign to miss the Christmas holiday period, and any delays with printing and shipping closures.

As there are no board game printers in Australia I have had to find one overseas. I have found a nice balance between quality, price and speed when it comes to the printing company. The prototype looks amazing.

The games will be shipped via conventional shipping methods. As always there are many reasons why deliveries can be delayed; I have planned and budgeted for total shipping time (worse case scenario) of 4 weeks but shipping of all items should occur sooner.
