About

What's  Worse Than...? A question we've all at some point asked ourselves. The  answer to that question then leading us into a tub of infinite thoughts,  slowly adding themselves one on top of the other.

Crazy right?

And fun. Which leads us to the concept of our game. What's Worse  Than...? poses a simple question/situation that incrementally worsens as  the round progresses. 


GAMEPLAY

There are two forms of game play - Party Circle and Rapid Fire.

Party Circle Instructions:

Participants get in a circle. The Reader pulls a card from the deck  and reads it out loud. The player to the right of the Reader has 10  seconds to respond to the card, worsening the initial situation. The  next player then builds off their response.  

If a player cannot answer in 10 seconds, they are removed from the  game, a new card is drawn and the person to the right of the eliminated  player becomes the new Reader, draws a card and starts the new round.

Simple, right? 

Here’s where it gets a little tricky…

Rules:

1. Players have to stay on topic with the original card. 

2. The response must include the last statement from the previous player.

3. There are no repeats – meaning neither the initial question, nor someone else’s  response can be repeated at any point in the round. Nor can the response  be remixed to save you from being kicked out the game.


Roles:

Reader 

The Reader begins each round by pulling a card and reading it. The  Reader can participate, but they go last in the round. The same rules  apply to them as everyone else.

Time Keeper

The Time Keeper keeps track of time for each player. The time starts  immediately after the Reader finishes the question. (Use a cell phone,  stop watch, whatever – preferably a cell phone) We shouldn’t have to say  to “lap” or restart every time a person takes a turn, so we won’t. What  we will say, is that the Time Keeper is the Tie-Breaker of the game. If  one player challenges another (we’ll go over that) – the Time Keeper  tallies the votes and can ultimately break a tied vote.

Challenges!

Players can challenge the answer of another player at the end of the challenged player’s turn if one of the following occurs:

1. The response didn’t worsen the situation.

2. The answer provided didn’t make sense.

3. The answer appeared redundant – this includes the original question on the pulled card.

Once a player is challenged, the group votes whether the player’s  response was valid. If they vote “yes”, the challenged person remains in  the game. If “no” then the challenged person is removed from the game.  Majority vote wins. The Time Keeper breaks the tie in the event there is  one. In either case, whether the player gets eliminated or remains in  the game - the round ends, the player to the right of the challenged  player becomes the new Reader, and a new round is started.

Rapid Fire Instructions:

The rules and roles are the same for rapid fire. However, instead of  sitting in a circle and going behind a predictable person, players throw  out answers at any given time. In the event two (or more) people answer  at once, the house (person who owns the game or the house everyone is  in) determines (prior to the game) what happens next. If one person  answers at a time, then the same rules as they would in Party Circle.

Risks and challenges

Tons of research and crunching numbers has led us to choose WinGo Games as the manufacturing company. We already have the card designs and secured the copyright. The main risks deal with the manufacturer such as delay in the delivery and any production mistakes.
