Were you late to the party?  No worries!  You can still pre-order the game at www.youbet-cha.com where you can also download the full instructions of the game and watch reviews!

Game Overview

How many films directed by Quentin Tarantino can you name in one minute? Can you name more than your friends? Would you bet on it?  You Bet-Cha! will challenge your knowledge and betting strategy, making it the perfect game for tabletop lovers, trivia enthusiasts and high rollers!

Lively categories will have you competing to name everything from members of the Detroit Bad Boys to hotels on the Vegas Strip. Don’t bet off more than you can chew, or you’ll be adding to your opponents’ chip stack.

  

 

 

 

 Be the player with the most chips after seven rounds of play

Gameplay:

Players ante a $1 chip into the pot

 

Player rolls the dice to determine category and game mode.  If a "You Pick" is rolled, the player selects the category

 

Player grabs a card from the determined category and reveals the subject to all players - no peeking at the answers on the back!

Did we mention we have a ton of fun subjects?

 

 

 

 

There are three fun game modes:

Silent Bet:  Players write the number of answers to the subject they can name in one minute. Players then flip their cards simultaneously.  The player with the highest bet places that amount of chips into the pot.

Live Bet:  Players bet out loud the number of answers to the subject they can name in one minute until the highest bet is reached.  The player with the highest bet places that amount of chips into the pot.

All Play: No bets are placed - everyone gets to play!

Silent or Live Bet:  Start the timer!  The player with the highest bid now has one minute to say the amount of answers they bet.

All Play:  Each player has one minute to write down as many answers to the subject as they can

 

Silent or Live Bet:  Did the player give the number of answers they bet? Yes:  Player collects the pot and banker pays them the amount of their bet.  No:  Pot is split evenly with the other players.

All Play:  Players collect a $1 chip for each correct answer written on their board.  The player with the most correct answers also collects the ante pot.

We like to support friendly local game stores by offering the Kickstarter version of the game to retailers during the campaign. Retailer backers, just like all backers, will receive their rewards before we release regular retail games into distribution.

If you're a retailer, please contact Joe at joe@graymattersgames.com during the campaign for more information. 

We are collaborating with two high-quality fulfillment companies in the USA and Canada that will keep shipping costs as low as possible and will allow for our customers to receive their rewards duty and custom free.  As a thank you to our backers, we are sharing the cost of shipping.  The cost for one shipped game to our backers will be:

USA: $4, Canada: $7 

Why Kickstarter?

Backer Engagement: You, the backers, can help us mold the game into the best it can be. We welcome your feedback and want to incorporate ideas from our valued backers into the final version.

Stretch Goals:  You Bet-Cha! is a premium game in its current form, but collectively, we can make it even fancier!  Increased funding allows us to improve our manufacturing cost per game, leaving room to add stretch goals such as more backer written cards.

Early Access: As backers of the game, you will receive You Bet-Cha! before anyone else - major bragging rights!
