Players take turns to score 21, or as near as possible to it, by throwing the dice as many times. A player who totals over 21 is bust and is out of the game. After each player has had their turn, the player whose total is nearest 21 wins the game.

Each turn, a player repeatedly rolls a dice until either a 1 is rolled or the player decides to "hold": If the player rolls a 1, they score nothing and the game will switch to the next player's turn. If the player rolls any other number, it is added to their turn total and the player's turn continues. If a player chooses to "hold", their turn total is added to their score, and it becomes the next player's turn. The first player to score 100 or more points wins.

I know it sounds complicated but just try it - it`s actually very easy to learn and makes fun!

This game is a combination of luck and a good statistical understanding! You are allowed to dice six times. Each time you rolled the dice you have to multiply with numbers 1 - 6 and each number can be picked only one time. At the end - that means after six rounds - the player with the highest overall score of the six rounds wins!

Each player in turn throws the dice two times and scores points whenever a double is thrown. Double-6 scores 25 points. A double-3 cancels out a player's score and puts them back to zero. Any double other than a 3 or 6 scores 5 points. Scores are recorded and the first player to obtain a total score of 50 points, wins the game.

This is the ultimate game to compete against your friends! 

Who has the best memory and fastest working brain? In this game Hubiz will ask you each turn a number order from 1-6. Than you have to press the correct numbers on your dice according to the number order Hubiz asked you. Each round the order will be longer! If you do one mistake, you are out of the game. The last remaining player wins the game.

Do you think you can focus on details? Is your brain working like a dictionary? Than this game is perfect for you. Hubiz is going to read a random sentence and you have to listen carefully and remember the sentence as accurate as possible. To win the game you have to count specific letters or words in this sentence correctly. Each round the sentence will be longer. The last remaining player wins the game.

Hubiz will ask everybody a list of certain questions and at the end every player receives an IQ-Score based on their submitted answers.

Hubiz will ask everybody a list of certain questions and at the end every player receives a personality-result based on their submitted answers.

This test is not based on any scientific ground, it's more for fun. You can chose which topic and Hubiz asks you and your friends topic-specified question. At the end everybody is a character based on their answers.

Six famous characters (famous persons, movie- and cartoon characters), will be introduced to you. Information about one of these people is given to you each round. Who can identify the person first?

Each turn Hubiz is giving one certain information about a “thing”. The aim is to find as soon as possible the correct “thing”.

Information is read to you. You must recognize if it's right or wrong.

In this game there is a time-bomb and you have to be quick to break the 4 digit code! Each round Hubiz gives you more information, you need to listen carefully and use your coding skills.

Every player is holding the dice into their hands, so no other player can see it. One dice is going to light up and afterwards the other players have to find who the person with the light is. In this game you need to be a good actor and fool your friends not getting caught.

Risks and challenges

Even though it's quite challenging to enter the gaming industry, with it`s high competitive environment, we feel confident to be successful. This confidence is due to our strong team-spirit. We have been working together for years and have a various expertise in different fields of software and hardware topics.

Our approach is to combine the classic party games with current technical opportunities. We did tons of research and market analysis before in order to identify challenges and potential obstacles. Furthermore we are also in touch with high level manufacturing-firms, finance-specialists and patent attorneys.

We put a lot of time and effort in order to calculate every single cost as accurate as possible, which also includes the shipping costs. Another important part of our after-campaign work will be the regulation-issues. We are fully aware about the different local and regional standards within the toys-industry and act accordingly. Obviously there are lot´s barriers but with your help dear Backers, we will be successful in providing Hubiz for everybody.

We guaranty to give updates about all relevant news regarding our project and about Hubiz to all our bakers.
