About

There's war and then there's THE EVERYONE SHARES ONE BUTT GAME.

Greetings fellow travelers! Welcome to the Everyone Shares One Butt Game! An unpredictable path building party game where you and your friends try to build a path of stomachs to connect your torso to the Almighty Butt! 

Ooh shiny! (previous prototype, content not final!)

With 100+ stomach and item cards, the game is similar to rogue-like video games where there are countless combinations of cards, effects, paths, synergies, and strategies in each playthrough. Want to stun your opponent? Be ready to have your stomach stolen! Has someone Portal Potty'd into your body? Make them pay with a Mass Purge! No two games are alike and every turn feels like a tug-of-war. Since there's only one winner per game, each game inevitably leads to ruined friendships inspired by games like Mario Party where you would regularly screw over other players.

I know what you're thinking: "You can't have just anyone draw butts for a butt game! You must have worked with someone special!" And you're very specifically right! We've collaborated  with web comic artist BananaTwinky, from Confidence Cat fame, and regularly-getting-his-webcomics-stolen-without-credit fame, to realize the universe of The Everyone Shares One Butt Game. Our comically absurd premise and his absurd comics were a match made in Butt heaven! (a real place, I swear!)

Bluff, steal, vote! Anything to get to the ALMIGHTY BUTT!

Each game can be played with 2-4 players and can last from as short as 20 minutes to upwards of 50 minutes depending on who you're playing and how you're playing!

We've been developing, reworking, balancing, and testing the game for the past two years and are near the very end of development! But(t) now we need your help to cross the finish line through production!  

Here at Butt Game HQ, we've done tons of research on "wanting things", and we knew that a Butt-based board game was "cool", but what's even "cooler" is "exclusive stuff". Luckily for true Butt Fans, we got you covered.


We've also learned that people generally want to know how something works before partaking in it. So here is How To Play the Everyone Shares One Butt Game!

There are also some more specific mechanics you can learn about on our how-to-play page on our website here: How-to-play

INT. EXORBITANTLY EXPENSIVE COLLEGE APARTMENT UNIT - NIGHT

The Genesis

JUSTIN lays flat on his stomach getting mad wrecked playing Blizzard's HEARTHSTONE. He is making a major effort to not work on any essays that are due this week and has been playing a lot of video games. He overhears his housemates, BRIAN and JACOB, talking about BUTTS.

Somehow this triggers an eldritch force within Justin and he begins scrawling rabidly on scraps of looseleaf paper, and voila-- The Everyone Shares One Butt Game was born... and those essays were finished much, much later!

What began as just under 20 cards about butts and stomachs became 50, then 100, then over 100 with unique effects and dynamic strategies within two years of play testing, tweaking, and tinkering on paper and cardboard. The game would be a staple of every house party we ever had.

Two years later, a friend who wanted to play the game with new friends in Texas graciously gave us the seed money to transform our single rugged copy into a legitimate prototype. Two prototype versions later, we're here and ready to send you a copy!

From its most primitive stages, The Everyone Shares One Butt Game was loved forward by the strongest senses of community. From everyone who has spent time playing, breaking, arguing, and organizing for the game, we are extremely proud to finally be on Kickstarter after planning for months. This alone is a personal dream fulfilled.

A full house! :0

 This past summer, we've had the pleasure of being able to partner with local businesses in the Southern California region that have advocated space for artists. These have been amazing events where we've been able to meet so many new players where they live and have their community playtest and preview the game firsthand.

 Here are some of the organizations we've partnered with thus far:

  • Giant Robot (GR2 - Gallery) in Sawtelle, Los Angeles
  • Snoice in Paradise Hills, San Diego
  • San Diego Night Market 
  • Intentional Coffee in Fullerton, Orange County
  • Gaya Gaya in Miramar, San Diego
  • Gateway 2019 presented by Strategicon in Los Angeles
  • San Diego Filipino Cinema's Magic Hour Fest at Liberty Station, San Diego

We already have more events planned during the campaign to provide opportunities for live previews months before we ship our final copies out! If you can make it out, we would love to meet you! For now, our budget restricts us to Southern California, but who knows what the future holds!  

Sharing the love with our butt(on)s!
New buddies left and right! <3

The #SquatUp Challenge begins!

Watch the challenge on Twitch here!:

https://www.twitch.tv/everyonesharesonebuttgame

Every Tuesday at 7 PM, we will be doing a squat per every backer of The Everyone Shares One Butt Game that week on our Twitch livestream! If we get 50+ backers in a week, we will DOUBLE all the squats. And if we get 100+ backers in a week, we will TRIPLE all the squats! You can pledge at any level, or even for just $1! 

We will also be doing a Q&A for the game during the stream, so tell your friends and have your questions ready for us!

Time to game up! #TooshTeam #SquatSquad #BootyPatrol

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter! We're standing on the shoulders of giants in this space, and we've spent a lot of time analyzing, reading through case studies, and talking to other Kickstarter success stories about how to do this right. We already have a great game, and now it's time for a great campaign!

Marketing to the rest of the country will also be a hurdle for us. We've toured the game all around SoCal, but there's so many butt-less states that have gone unconnected. We need your help to spread the word!

It took a lot to get to this point, but we're dialed in and are END-THUSIASTIC to get EVERYONE to SHARE ONE BUTT!

Also congratulations for making it to the BOTTOM of the page ;)

We'll update this space for some nice motivational compliments once in awhile, so keep checking down here!

You are working hard every day. Don't get discouraged because it wasn't perfect. It's always a journey, not a fixed destination.
