I love word games and I love party games, so I made a game that combines the best elements of both!

"Wordariffic" is a completely new standalone game influenced by party games such as “Apples to Apples” or “Cards Against Humanity” and word creation games like “Scrabble” or “Bananagrams”. 

**YEAH, IT'S FREAKING 12 BUCKS**

 How to Play

Each player gets 11 letter cards and tries to make a word that best relates to a random theme. The last player to put down a word loses their chance to play this round and becomes the judge. The player(s) with the longest word gets 1 point. The player with the best word (as judged by the judge) gets 3 points. The game ends when the 32 point chips have all been handed out.

The game style morphs to fit your audience. When I play with my kids, I use the same cards but I might make different choices as to how to arrange them when I play with adults.

How the heck am I shipping this game the day after the Kickstarter ends?

I went ahead and made a small print run of the game in its final form. This Kickstarter will fund the larger print run for retail and distribution.

Impossible to resist.

Risks and challenges

Since I already have a pilot printing finished, the risks are extremely low. If we get up to the numbers needed for a full scale print, we might encounter the usual delays from printers, dockworkers and other people who conspire against game delivery.
