About

 Do you enjoy hanging out with your friends? Does planning hangouts give you headaches? Has one or more of your friends flaked out on you last minute? Has the bus never shown up on time? Do you have that one friend that is always late? Do you tell your friends an earlier meeting time just to make sure they show up on time? Does all this make you ANGRY

Well…Rage-o-Meter™ is the game for you

 Rage-o-Meter™ is a cooperative roleplaying tabletop game that lasts 45 to 60 minutes and is for 3 to 6 players. Perfect for families and social gatherings of all kinds.
 

You and your play group are roleplaying as members of the GinGee Gang Gang, a group of diehard music fans who are all trying to coordinate a meeting at GinGee’s Run! Man! Run! concert. Try to navigate the neverending barrage of rage-inducing events while also trying to keep each other sane. Put your friendship and your anger management skills to the test!

Why not meet the cast?  

 So...which of the GinGee Gang Gang do you identify with?

 Here is the list of what is inside the Rage-o-Meter™ game box. 

 Here are some noteworthy information about some of the game's components:

  •  Game Boards & Player Boards are printed on 2 mm thick cardboard
  •  Snack Tokens & Counter Token are printed on 2 mm thick cardboard
  •  All Cards are printed on blue core 300 gsm paper

And here is the product spread of Rage-o-Meter™ (*Final product may vary from photo, this demo was put together by ourselves. All artwork is 100% complete and is ready to be sent to production.)

  • Before anything, choose one out of the six GinGee Gang Gang characters to play as! They all have their own quirks and perks~ So choose wisely...Or choose whoever that speaks to you most! Along with picking a character and their associated stands and boards, pick up 3 Disruption Cards and 3 Snack Tokens unless otherwise specified.

Once you've picked a GinGee Gang Gang character to play as, you'd need to determine a Meeting Time and who is Player 1. In Rage-o-Meter™, Player 1 is determined by asking the following question: 

Make sure to ask the question...with more tact...
Make sure to ask the question...with more tact...

Player 1 is now responsible of keeping track of the game board! Here are the responsibilities of Player 1:

  • Keeping track of the Travel Time* and Meeting Time** by moving the clock handles
  • Keeping track of the Explosion Counter 

*Travel Time is the method to track rounds in Rage-o-Meter™ and it can be affected by events. Every 5 minutes = 1 round.

**Meeting Time is determined by the players, and it stays fixed unless specified and affected by events. Recommended Meeting Time to be set for 1.5 hours when you first play Rage-o-Meter™, however the Meeting Time can be anything the players chooses.

With Player 1 determined, and the certain character effects resolved (ex: Coco and Junior starting the game with 1 Rage), you can start playing.

  • Every player draws an Event Card and react accordingly to the effects
  • Draws a Chat Card and rolls a dice to determine more or less Rage damage to the group. Player who drew the Chat Card and rolls the dice does not receive any damage. 
  • Once all effects from the Event Cards and Chat Cards are resolved, it is the next player's turn until arriving back at Player 1 to be considered a full round. Player 1 moves the clock handle on the Transit Time clock, to signify an end of a round. 1 round = 5 minutes in Travel Time

In order to win, Players are to:

  • Reach the bottom of the Event Deck 
  • Make sure to not accumulate 10 Explosions  
  • Make sure Travel Time does not catch up to Meeting Time 
Congrats, you made it to the end of the Event Deck! You won!

 Suz and Vii went to art school together but never worked on a project together. (And being the two co-leaders of the Decor Committee to our class’ graduating exposition does not count) However, passing through this ring-of-fire we discovered we worked really well together! Rage-o-Meter™ is the first project of ours, and hopefully the first of many others.

 The conception story of Rage-o-Meter™

“Wouldn’t it be funny to make a game about a group of quirky characters dealing with rage while trying their best to accomplish an objective?”  - Vii

“And the characters are a dysfunctional friend group that magically manages to accomplish their goal...I'm down. Let's do it.”  - Suz


Rage-o-Meter™ came out of a discussion from one of our weekly meetings not too long after our art school graduation a little over a year ago. So many little things we come across in life causes us annoyance and anger, so when it stockpiles...it makes us very unbearable. So unbearable to the point that we explode! And that is especially the case when we try to coordinate something amongst groups of people or friends. We have really opened Pandora’s box with that statement...and here we are today with the Rage-o-Meter™ Kickstarter! 

 Rage-o-Meter™ is dedicated to Suz's cat, Miso, who left us while we were working on this game.

 We're small and new company, but Hot Leaf House’s philosophy is to keep moving forward and to keep creating. Other than making games we plan to design brand merchandise, game merchandise, other artworks, and etc. We would like to make and try out many things, and we hope you will join us in our journey.  

To be most up to date, please consider following us on: Twitter / Instagram  / Facebook / Newsletter 

 We would like to thank you for supporting our project. Every dollars counts and with your help and contributions, Rage-o-Meter™ can become reality! 

Risks and challenges

Rage-o-Meter™ is our first game project, and we are aware there will be various challenges that will come our way. We will be doing our best to solve them as they come!

All the artwork is 100% completed and ready to be mass produced. The reason we limited the amount of backers for every tier is because there will only be 500 copies of Rage-o-Meter™ made. Since we are a two-person fledgling company, we’d rather be more conservative than frivolous. We’ve worked on Rage-o-Meter™ for over a year, so we believe it is time to move on to designing our next game. We hope to see you all at our next Kickstarter for better or for worse.

We will be using the funding of this project to go towards the lovely production team at Kamings, freight, taxes, tariffs, and Kickstarter fees.

We are going to be very cautious with fulfillment. The fulfillment of these rewards will be done in batches (by region) since it is the most foolproof method to avoid mistakes and miscommunications. However, possible delays and issues can occur from circumstances beyond our immediate control. If such an issue is encountered, we will do our best solve them.
