QUICK AND DIRTY KICKSTARTER WAS SUCCESSFULLY FUNDED AND THE GAME ENTERED PRODUCTION!

Simply the most outrageous fun you’ll have with friends at your next party. It’s an offensively fun card game that rewards quick wits and dirty minds. Suitable for ages 17+, Quick And Dirty is easy to learn and a typical game takes between 10-30 minutes. Players can join and leave at any time and it supports a virtually unlimited amount of players with no slowdown in the game at all!

It’s the perfect addition to liven up your next party, games night or pregame. Our game is even small enough to fit in your pocket or purse, so you can easily play it at a bar or take it travelling with you. We even made a waterproof plastic version that’s perfect for the pool, beach, or spilling drinks on! So get some friends together, maybe some drinks too, open Quick And Dirty and let the good times roll…

A category card and a letter card get flipped over. First to say an answer starting with the letter that fits the category wins the round! Give the round winner the black card to keep score, then flip two new cards to do it all over again. The champion is whoever has the most black cards at the end of the game.

Quick And Dirty is a social game, there are no strict right or wrong answers and part of the fun is justifying why your answer is correct. A typical game finishes once all the black cards have been played, but you can play for as long, or as little as you like. Because each round comprises both a category card and a letter card, our regular game deck gives you over 1000 unique round combinations to play through, meaning you can play for hours without the game repeating itself.

We encourage you to play the game however you like, but you can check out our suggested rules for social or competitive play on our website at: http://www.quickanddirtygames.com/rules 

We came up with the idea over a year ago. Whenever we had friends over we liked to play games, but we ran into some common issues:

  • some people didn’t know how to play 
  • games would slow down with too many players 
  • people became distracted
  • games took too long to finish 
  • not enough social interaction

None of the games we played were quite perfect so we decided to make our own. The result was Quick And Dirty. 

The original idea started on handwritten scraps of paper. Quick readability was important for a fair game, so we ended up deciding 4 sided cards worked best. We then experimented printing some of our categories onto cardboard at a local print shop, and it was starting to feel like a real game! By now we’d received encouraging feedback from everyone who played and began to think about how we could turn it into an actual polished game.

We racked our brains to come up with about 250 potential categories between us, but found that not all of them worked well in the game. To be a good category it had to have a wide range of possible answers, be easily answered with a single word or short phrase, and most of all lead to funny responses! So out of our initial 250 potential categories, only about 1 in 10 would meet our criteria for a good category. We then reached out to writers and paid to have over 500 more potential categories made for us. After thoroughly evaluating all the potential categories and exhaustive playtesting, we came up with the best 42 categories you see in this deck!

The many stages of prototypes
The many stages of prototypes
After settling on our categories, we then tested a series of different card designs to find which worked best. Everything from the logo shading on the card, to line widths and placement, to the font type used. We worked with printers to get professional prototypes made, including custom storage boxes, prepared graphical instruction cards, formalized the rules, and ended up with something beyond what we ever could have imagined at the start.

The last phase has been preparing to bring it to market, we had to set up a company, website, and film the Kickstarter video you see here today, as well as determine pricing, costs and the logistics of how we would fulfill a successful Kickstarter. All our hard work has finally come to this and we hope it brings you as much fun as we had creating it!




We’ve worked with printers and designers over the last year to develop a production ready prototype. After playtesting many iterations and hundreds of categories, the game is now 100% complete and ready to go. In order to bring the game to market we need to commit to a sufficient size production run, which is why we need your help. If we achieve our Kickstarter funding target we can put the game into production and get copies into your hands within weeks of the campaign ending!

Our cards will be professionally printed 3.5”x3.5” squares with their own custom compact tuck box. Our printers also specialize in Kickstarter fulfillment services and will be assisting us with shipping and fulfillment worldwide, which is how we are able to provide cheap postage to US customers and only a small additional fee for customers worldwide. EUROPEAN UNION CUSTOMERS NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO ADDITIONAL CUSTOMS/TAXES FOR YOU TO PAY ON DELIVERY. WE PAY THE VAT! We also have friendly shipping to Australia/Canada with no hidden fees.

Back us today with full confidence that you’ll be enjoying Quick And Dirty in the very near future!

Risks and challenges

Our main risk would be a delay in delivery due to issues at our printing company or delivery networks. In the event of catastrophic issues with our primary printing company, we have an alternate supplier in place and will be able to fulfill orders with only minimal additional delays.

A note for EU customers: in order to facilitate EU friendly shipping and deal with customs and VAT complications we need to use a third party mail forwarding service in Europe. This will add an extra step to the shipping process and may mean slightly delayed delivery for EU customers relative to other countries.

Also in the event both of us are killed, maimed, kidnapped or otherwise incapacitated we regretfully will not be able to fulfill our Kickstarter. Sorry.
