NICE TRY – The Challenge Party Game
Turn your next barbecue, birthday party, or random Tuesday into challenge day! Compete with your friends in fast, crazy and hilarious challenges for mind, body and dexterity!
Be smart and take a risk to win the mind game! Before each challenge, all players place a bid on how well they will perform. The worst bid is kicked out. Nothing ventured, nothing gained! With the best bid you can earn the most points - but if you overestimate yourself and fail, then say hello to some penalty points!
Do you earn the respect of your rivals, or do you just gain a gloating „NICE TRY!“?

4 to 8 players compete against each other in a series of mini-games across various disciplines. With simple household items such as spoons or coins, everyone can prove their skills. You can manage most challenges with agility or brainpower. Even if you were always the last one to be picked for a team in gym class, you can win the race. It's more about being an all-rounder!
The Mind Game
Before facing a challenge, every player secretly places a bid on how successful they will be. The bidding phase brings an exciting psychological thrill into the game, in which you must estimate your own abilities and those of your fellow players. You can't play it safe! If you bid the least, you'll get kicked out and get an instant minus point. The more you dare, the more points you can earn by fulfilling your bid. At the same time you increase the risk of screwing it up and taking penalty points. Who will be a coward and who a big mouth?
As you draw random challenge cards in every match of NICE TRY, you'll also run into special challenges. In Last Man Standing, Highscore and One Shot you do not place a value as a bid, but decide whether you want to participate or not. If you decide to sit it out, zero risk! If you participate, you can collect a load of points, both plus and minus.
Also, each player has 3 Jokers available. Used at the right time, they can maximize your score. More detailed information about the Jokers, the special challenges and the game mechanics themselves can be found in the game instructions for download.
After 8 challenges and 60 to 90 minutes full of high fives and epic fails, a champion will be crowned. And we promise you this: You'll want to play a rematch immediately!

NICE TRY – Team Mode Edition. While in the original game you're lone warriors, in this edition you'll team up with your friends or family members to compete against other teams. It's a standalone version for 4 up to 24 players, making it the perfect game for big celebrations, office parties or school classes. It contains completely new challenges in which at least 2 players of the same team have to co-operate at the same time. Learn more about the difference between the two editions.
Double the challenges – double the fun! Grab yourself both editions of NICE TRY plus 5 fancy face palm stickers that fit perfectly on your notebook, forehead or tax return. Both editions can be played separately, but can also be combined.

Der große Reiz des Spiels besteht im Mitfiebern bei gegnerischen Challenges, selbst den Adrenalinkick zu spüren, oder sich schadenfroh über das Versagen der Anderen zu freuen. – Boardgame Monkeys
Risks and challenges
We want everyone to get their copies of NICE TRY as soon as possible after the campaign ends. To accomplish this we focus on just one thing: The game itself. This is why there are no t-shirts, cups or other frills that would make the distribution process take longer. We already have a deal with a German printing company that has the capacities to print large numbers of high-quality copies in a short amount of time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
