About this project
"There's no question that Questionable Fun will be entering my regular rotation of games I play with nerdy friends on game night. After a mere 30 seconds of instruction, everyone is up and playing. But not just up and playing, probably also laughing their asses off." -- Scott Bogen, The Board Game Show podcast
"One of my favorite party games." - Cartrunk Entertainment
"If you're just not sure that, after a normal game night, your friends are going to hell fast enough, it's time to back this game." ~Eric Leath, Full_Of_Chit
"I know crazy and this game is crazy fun! So crazy those responsible belong in an institution!" Benny Sperling, Mental Health Professional and Board Game Designer

Game Overview: Each turn one player reads a question from a card. The other players write down their funniest answers. All the answers are passed to one player who reads them all out loud. The first player picks his favorite answer and the winning answer gets a point. First one to 5 points wins.
All of the questions are hypothetical and designed with one thought in mind: give players enough imagery to see some funny answer possibilities but leave them enough room for their own creativity and style. Some of the questions are politically incorrect, slightly raunchy, or generally inappropriate. Some are just silly or even look totally innocent at first glance. Some of the questions are very open ended and some are rather narrow. Either way, questions leave enough room so your group can tailor answers to their own style.
Here's some sample questions!
Hugh Hefner just created a new breakfast cereal. What's it called and what's the slogan?
You just woke up in a dumpster and you have amnesia. What 3 clues do you find in your pockets?
There is a new cable TV network that features nothing but Mr. T acting out episodes from popular TV series. What is the network called and what is the most watched show on it?
If you aren't completely satisfied with the game, return it to us and we will return your donation! All KICKSTARTER projects ask backers to put their faith in people they've probably never met. We want to show you that we, in turn, have faith in the quality and appeal of our game.

Risks and challenges
This is our first game but we have done our homework by learning about the industry and obtaining many pricing quotes for the manufacturing of Questionable Fun -- the funds from Kickstarter will pay for the production, shipping, storage, distribution, etc. We already have plans to continue production of the game for the future. We even have some great ideas for expansions of Questionable Fun. As any game publisher knows, it is virtually impossible to have a run of less than 1,000 games manufactured. Kickstarter will allow us to get the funds to have our game published in a high quality, professional manner.
We wanted our questions to appeal to as many people as possible without sacrificing the game's integrity. It was important to us to include the best possible questions, so we set out to understand what combination of questions make a game fun. We’ve tried really hard to set the questions up in a "slow-pitch" style for coming up with funny answers. If a question doesn’t evoke at least one humorous answer in your mind right away, then it shouldn’t be in the game. About 25% of the questions we first wrote made it into the prototype. Of those, only about 20% will make it into the final game. We've play tested this game with many different kinds of people, taken it to conventions and used all that feedback to refine the questions. We feel very confident that people will love this game, as we have included a risk free guarantee.
