Game of Phones is a card game where all you need is your smartphone to take on creative and unexpected challenges. It’s the ultimate digital scavenger hunt!
The original version of Game of Phones launched right here on Kickstarter. Now we’re back with a totally redesigned version that’s bigger and better in every way.
- Fun new ways to play challenges that bring variety to every round
- A fresh new design that we’re really excited about
- Tons of new challenges that we’ve tested and tested again
- And for those who've been with us from the start... your favorite cards from the original game are included as a free Mini Pack!
Welcome to the new Game of Phones. We worked tirelessly to finalize the design and bring it to you here. We hope you like it, and that with the support of the Kickstarter community we can make this next phase a reality.
– Luke & Sam
We’re Sam and Luke. We’ve been making Game of Phones for a little over 5 years, after launching it on Kickstarter as design students in 2014. The concept for the game came from a scene that’s likely familiar to us all: people escaping social situations into their phones while others look on. We thought a game might connect people in new ways as there’s so much of interest locked away in our phones. Through playing, we could get to know each other better.
Over the years, we’ve been thrilled to see the game doing just that in living rooms, bars, and classrooms across the country and abroad. We’ve seen a lot of weird photos and funny texts. After playing with and listening to people over the years, we felt it was time to revisit the fundamentals of the game with everything we’d learned to make it better than ever. We can’t wait to get the new version into your hands!
Kickstarter made Game of Phones a reality when it was just an idea printed on copy paper and cut into small rectangles so we could play with any stranger that would test with us. Even though we’re no longer using our school’s printer to make the game, we still ask strangers to play with us and still love the community on Kickstarter. We’re therefore back where it all started to share a new and improved game that we’ve been working really hard on, and we’re bringing it to Kickstarter first. We hope you like it.

Risks and challenges
Even though we’ve been around for a little while, we’re still a very small team. This is our first big launch since the initial Kickstarter in 2014 and while it’s always risky launching something new, with the help of the Kickstarter community and the awesome people at Breaking Games (who printed the original game for 5 years and print other games such as Cards Against Humanity, Exploding Kittens, and Sparkle*Kitty) we know we can get it done. We’re also keeping it simple this time. No posters or special boxes, just Game of Phones. This way we can get it to you quicker (by the holidays!)
It’s also challenging to say goodbye to the original game that we still love very much. While some if it will live on in the Classic Pack, we’re changing the overall design, feel, and gameplay. We’ve put a lot of hard work into this new version and we think it’s a big step forward. We think you will too!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
