About

Mixed Company is a conversationally engaging card game for 3 to 6 players! Join your friends in choosing a conversation topic, and challenging each other to share different perspectives on questions that range from simple to complex, all in around 30 minutes. Using a simple set of rules, you and your friends can quickly join in a simple 1 question round or go for a more complex competitive 3 round game to take on different perspectives and share your experiences.

For 3-6 players, ages 10 and up. 15-30 minutes playtime.  

 You will also get all other UPDATES and UNLOCKED STRETCH GOALS. Check our our stretch goals below for more details. 

We’re creating a Kickstarter Exclusive set of questions that will be for the backers by the backers. You’ll be directly involved in creating and choosing the questions that go into this exclusive set. We’ll be adding new voting blocks for questions throughout the campaign right here on Kickstarter so every backer has a chance to join in creating the Kickstarter Edition of Mixed Company!

Visit the Comments section to submit and vote!

Keep checking back! We’re going to be adding stretch goals and social stretch goals throughout the campaign, so you can help share the word to get even more Mixed Company with your pledge!

After making up your Question Deck, dealing out cards, and letting each player select a question for the table - you’ll vote! Each player votes for three Question Cards out of the six on the table. The top three questions are the ones that you’ll use when you play.

During each round, players will issue a challenge to another player that they have to try and accomplish during that round of discussion. Each player will also receive a challenge from someone themselves. You’ll also play action cards to engage other players, and then give out a trophy for each question to someone based on what you heard in the discussion. 

After all 3 rounds are over, tally up the points and the player with the most points is the winner!

You can download the Quick Play Rules & Full Rules PDF and Quick Reference Guide PDF. You can also read a more detailed version of How To Play on our website at www.Mixed.Company/How-To-Play

Check out a sample of Mixed Company right now with this pdf set of example questions, cards, and the full rules before you ever pledge!  

But if you know you want a Print & Play game, sign up for our $2 Print & Play only backer level. This backer level gets you access to Updates (including voting and adding your exclusive questions) and the pledge manger after the Kickstarter ends, so you’ll know every stretch goal that’s available throughout the campaign.

We got great feedback in the first 48 hours of our campaign and used the feedback from our backers to completely revitalize the shipping structures on our Kickstarter. You’ll see in the pledges a few that we’ve cancelled so we can bring you Mixed Company with the best shipping value.

We’ll be adding shipping per backer for United States backers through a pledge manager after the Kickstarter closes. The industry is experiencing a lot of changes when it comes to shipping with tariffs and other postal changes. We are committed to getting your games to you with the best advantage possible.

· Pick Up Your Game: Some areas will be able to pick up their game for FREE with NO shipping. If you’re in one of the selected areas that we’re able to bring our games to you, you can choose this option in the pledge manager. If you want to know more, send us a message!

· Other United States Shipping: If you’re not in area where we can provide pick up services, we’ll provide shipping pricing to you based on your pledge and the number of games you’ve selected during the pledge manager. You’ll also be able to add additional games at this time, too.

· Anywhere in the world: We will ship games from the US to anywhere else. If you have any questions in addition to the chart below, let us know and we’ll be happy to answer them!  

What do other people think of Mixed Company? Check out these great reviews and comments from people who have played the game! Please note that these are based on our demo game set, not the final production version of the game. We need you to help us get those out there!

· Money back guarantee: If you decide you don't like Mixed Company within the first month of receiving it, you can return it for a full refund, no questions asked.

· Kickstarter Backers Come First: You will get your game before traditional distribution begins, and we will always be completely honest and transparent with you. 

· Shape the game: Our backers will also get the chance to add new content to the game! You’ll see as our stretch goals get unlocked, we have some awesome ways our backers will get to help us create content for the final Mixed Company edition that will ship out to our supporters.

· Because We Need You: We've covered the cost of the graphic design and art, but we can't manufacture and ship the game without your support.

We need your support right now to help us make this card game the best game it can be. By backing us and pledging your support, you are helping us to publish Mixed Company. We cannot publish this game without our backers. Also by backing us you will help unlock stretch goals that will make the game even better! 

It's just two people and some awesome and amazing volunteers making this game, no big company, no big media machine. We have poured over a year of our lives into making this game and have spent over $10k of our own money on things like graphic design, product prototyping, traveling to game conventions for playtesting and demos, and getting demo copies created for great reviews and videos. Every single day has been spent working on creating and improving the game. We work full time and have families. We chose to use Kickstarter because it is the perfect solution to help us make a high quality version of this game that other people can enjoy. 

This is only the beginning! We have been concentrating very hard on the core content, making it a great game all on its own, but also making sure it is open for possible future expansions that could be played with the core game. 

We have been playtesting and refining this game for over a year. We have playtested it at dozens of gaming conventions and several board game shops with over 100 games played. The feedback we have received from hundreds of playtesters has been incredibly helpful.

We have put a significant amount of our time and personal money into making Mixed Company a polished, production ready game. With a successful Kickstarter campaign, we'll send the final files to our manufacturer and we plan for a Winter 2019 delivery to all backers, but cannot guarantee delivery before January 2020.

Risks and challenges

We’ve playtested! We've prototyped! We’ve chosen a reputable manufacturer! Our only challenge now is getting it shipped to you in a reasonable amount of time. Even if there are unexpected delays, we will still deliver the product. We’re working with Quartermaster Logistics to help us make sure that even with everything going on in the industry with changes to international shipping requirements, we have an experienced team helping to get your games to you as quickly as we can after funding.
