About

Show & Tile is a party game for 3-6 players, suitable for all ages! Each player takes two sets of tangram tiles, picks a word, and starts building! At the end of 90 seconds, put your tiles down and try to guess everyone’s words.

 

"Games like this always make me happy. They allow me to be creative without feeling the pressure to be creative."
-Father Geek

“It’s a great game for kids, for families, for casual gamers...heck, for anyone!” 
- Bearded Meeple

"Every round ended with us laughing. It's a really good game - I had a lot of fun with it!" - Brian's Got Game

Can’t draw? No problem! Tangrams are a Chinese puzzle which has been popular for centuries. They can be used to construct anything you can imagine!

Examples from real games!

Show & Tile takes 30 minutes to play, and offers a unique experience each time. The more you play, the more you learn how the other players think, and the more advanced words you can create!

 

 

 

The Enhanced Edition contains over 150 new words, adding even more replayability! These new words come in special categories - when everyone is trying to guess your word, they know what category it's in: Verbs, Adjectives, or Jobs.

Once you’ve mastered the base game's objects, shuffle these cards into the deck and stretch your newfound tangram abilities even further!

Everything from the base game!

The game has gone through dozens of blind playtests, and we've received production samples from the factory: as soon as the campaign ends, Show & Tile is ready to print!

Note: Colors have no mechanical function in the game, and are purely decorative. Tania, our colorblind Art Director, designed Show & Tile to use the most harmonious combination available. In all Jellybean titles, we design with colorblindness and accessibility in the forefront of our minds.

How to play video:

Full playthrough with one of the designers:

 

 

    $15k - Linen-finish cards: If we can reach $15k in funding, we'll be able to upgrade ALL the word cards (for both the Base Game and the Enhanced Edition) to be linen-finish!
    $20k - Upgraded box: At $20k, we'll be able to upgrade the box to be stronger and sturdier! This game has a LOT of components, and we're keen to ensure the box can hold the weight!

Your support is the only way we can make Show & Tile a reality! By supporting us on Kickstarter, you can help us create this fun family game...and by backing, you’ll get the game before anyone else!

Show & Tile is a big game - by far the biggest we've ever put together! Without you, we can't make it happen. We have a bunch of fun stretch goals planned, so spread the word!

The Enhanced Edition will not be available in retail. If you want more words and replayability, back now!

Risks and challenges

This is our sixth project, and we’ve learned so much from the first five.

For the first time, we’ve gotten a complete production sample BEFORE launching the Kickstarter. The game you see in the video above is exactly how the final game will look. The game has been going through playtests for months now: the rulebook, word lists, and final graphic design are all complete.

Once the campaign wraps up, all we need to do is send it to the printer!

That’s it!

We are renowned for keeping our backers in the loop through our comprehensive updates. When you back a Jellybean Games campaign, you know you’re in good hands!

If you have any questions about any part of the campaign, you can message us through Kickstarter or email jessa@jellybean-games.com (our dedicated customer service representative) for a prompt response.

We are so confident that you're going to love this game, we're offering a money-back guarantee: At any time before we ship, you can get in contact for a full refund. As well as that, if you decide that Show & Tile isn’t for you within a month of receiving it, you can return it, no questions asked.
