About

Moose, also known as ‘Quarters’ was a fun, interactive drinking game we played in our younger years, which involved bouncing quarters into an ice tray.  This game had become a thing of the past, as automatic ice makers took over and ice trays disappeared from the freezers.  We wanted to bring the game of Moose back, but with a twist.  Instead of just making and selling you an old boring ice tray, we put together our own version of moose with the addition of Rule and Dare cards, which makes this game the most kick-ass drinking game on the market!  How many of you have played a drinking game where you had to come up with a rule or dare on the spot?  We wanted to take the thinking, blundering, and long pauses out of the game.  I mean, who can come up with a fun and crazy rule or dare when you’re three sheets to the wind? Moose will make you laugh, cry, dance, sing, and maybe get a sloppy kiss or two.  If you get the Dirty Dare expansion pack, you may just find yourself naked with a lampshade on your head riding the sofa like a rodeo bull.  Who knows?  Anything is possible with Moose.   

Some of the possible side-effects from playing Moose include:

  • A date
  • Marriage
  • Divorce
  • Children
  • Hangover
  • New Friends
  • New Enemies
  • Humiliation
  • Forehead pains 
  • Missing clothing
  • The Walk of Shame
  • Memory Loss
  • New Boyfriend, Girlfriend…or both 

Moose is intended to break the ice and get your party started, so have fun with it!  Keep Calm and Show Us Your Rack!  And no, we don't mean that rack (but maybe, if you're lucky...).  

Here's a picture of my wife's beautiful rack...

The production process for Moose is pretty straight forward.  We have worked with many local businesses in producing our game prototype.  All of these companies have voiced a huge interest in helping us mass produce our game. Once we are funded, we will contact these companies and tell them to start production.  We plan to have assemblers in-house at our shop in Stacy, Minnesota, that will package and ship the games to our customers.  

All of our Moose Games include the following items:

  • One Moose Game Tray (Green or Red for now. We will have more color choices in the future)
  • 52 Rule Cards
  • 52 Dare Cards
  • 52 Dirty Dare Cards (if you purchase the Expansion Deck)
  • 10 Moose Playing Tokens
  • 1 Rule Sheet

As of now, we only have 52 Rule, 52 Dare, and 52 Dirty Dare cards.  We know all of you crazy partiers out there can think of many more rules and dares that will keep everyone laughing and having the best time they will probably never remember.  WE WANT YOUR HELP!  If you have a fun, wild rule or dare, please email us at thecocktailcooler@gmail.com and tell us your rule or dare.  If we don't already have it, and we think it kicks ass, we will include it in our game and we will give you credit by printing your first name, city and state on your card!  

REWARDS

Our fun Moose Swag Pack includes a can koozie, shot glass, and a t-shirt.  We have a men's and women's version of the swag pack.

Risks and challenges

We understand that we will have to go with a larger board game production company to build our games for us eventually. But for now, we are adamant about using local businesses to build and print all of our game supplies. Because of this, the length of time it would take to assemble and ship our games may take longer than if we were to use a company specializing in board game production. We may be taking the more difficult path, but we are firm believers in supporting our small, local businesses because we are small business owners ourselves and we know how important the "little guy" is to the well being of the USA. Quite frankly, I think a lot of people are getting tired of the disposable, cheaply made products that we all buy and seem to break or fall apart with little use. As with my wood splitters, I build things to last forever. For this specific reason, we want to give those companies and ours an adequate amount of time to produce a high quality made, well packaged product for our customers to enjoy for years to come.
