About

 Game Review  

Hi! We are Janet, Matt and Jeff; creators of the fun new party-game called EXIST.

Game play for EXIST is humorous, simple and competitive. EXIST's four main card decks create a lively, exciting and challenging game, designed for players ages 17 and up.

Gather four or more players, choosing one to be the game's first SUPREME DECIDER, who will function as the round's judge. The SUPREME DECIDER rotates for each round, giving every player the opportunity to feel the power!

Each round consists of absurd scenarios created by drawing one card each from the Opponent, Location and Wild card decks. 

Players may face anything from trying to escape Intergalactic Strippers on a Cruise Ship while experiencing Five-Minutes of Temporary Paralysis, to dealing with Bill Collectors in a Hot Tub while You Have Active Diarrhea.

Players must then choose which Resource card to throw from their hand to overcome the obstacles presented, either more effectively with logic, in a funnier way, or simply supported by a better more persuasive argument for the SUPREME DECIDER to consider in making the ultimate decision who wins the round.  

Players are expected to use their imagination, tap into their powers of persuasion and select the best or most outrageous Resource, arguing for it with passion, deception, charm, or just plain B.S. How successful you are depends on how well you play your Resources. With 160 Resources available in EXIST, the possibilities are nearly endless.

EXIST contains 323 cards - 54 cards in each of the Opponent, Location and Wild decks, 160 Resources and 1 SUPREME DECIDER card.

Over the past 4 years we have personally financed this project, and through extensive play testing we have full faith in its success.  We have applied for trademark, have perfected our logo and artwork, designed EXIST's website, created a QR Code for the rules, and have built a strong relationship with our manufacturer in China. Your support on Kickstarter will enable us to meet their 1K minimum order quantity.  

We plan to have games in-house and ready to mail mid-December. Of course once they are available they will be sent out immediately to our Kickstarter supporters via Priority Mail.  All of the artwork files to create EXIST have been submitted to the manufacturer.  As soon as funds become available we are ready to go to press!   

By ordering EXIST, and working with us to get these first copies made, you will be the first of your friends to own it, and you will have helped bring this really awesome fun game into the world. Please help this game EXIST because we all could use some more laughter in our lives! 

NOTE: There are plans in the works to add expansion packs which will allow you to customize your game. (As our Kickstarter supporters, you will be among the first informed on expansion progress and availability.)

Thank you for putting your faith in us,  for bringing joy to many - and for helping make EXIST exist!

Risks and challenges

EXIST is currently our one and only project, and we do not require any outside approvals or reviews to proceed, or anything else that may be cause for delay. If any issues do occur, we promise we'll inform you and be transparent on how we are going to resolve it. We have made sure everything we can possibly control is taken care of before the campaign starts. The only thing we cannot control is unforeseen delays due to misprints, a ship gone missing or other events out of our control. We are focused on the fact that the most important thing for us to do is to get EXIST into your hands and let the fun commence!
