About

The Sheets & Giggles Game is a party game for adults with 4 rounds of hilarious, inappropriate, action-packed word play and innuendos considered offensive by most. You and your team will describe outrageous words and phrases, act them out, give one-word hints, then act them out again under a sheet. Score points by quickly getting your team to guess cards correctly while using the rule for each round. So, grab some friends, perhaps a stiff drink and get ready for a game that turns you into a Sheet Head!    

 Here's What You Get: 

Hey Sheet Heads. If you like crass humor, gut laughing, and covering yourself in sheet, wait until you play this game. 

The team with the most correctly guessed cards after all 4 rounds wins. Each round has different rules. Every card will be reused in each round, so each card will be used 4 times...got it?        

Each Sheet Head gets a 60-second turn to try to get their team to guess as many cards as possible using the rule for that round. Once a card is drawn, it must either be guessed correctly or returned to the pile when time expires. Teams take turns guessing cards – every member of a team should take their turn as Sheet Head before any teammate repeats.

Each of the 4 rounds end after all cards are guessed correctly. To start the next round, reshuffle all the cards and continue in the order you left off.

HINT: If your memory sucks, read the cards aloud after the first round. 

Split into teams– ideally 2 teams of 3 to 6 people but we've played with 3 teams and 21 people.       

The game should consist of about 45 cards total. To start, everyone gets 10 random cards and places a few of their favorites face down in a pile until there are enough.

  • HINT: Don’t share your cards with anyone, even the other players on your team!
  •  HINT: The number of olives indicates the dirtiness of the card. The more olives, the dirtier it is. 

Combine and shuffle all chosen cards from both teams into one pile & put them face down on a table, in a bowl, or in the box. All cards, regardless of who chose them, will be used by both teams.    

 Choose your least favorite people to keep score and time.   

The team with the most correctly guessed cards after all 4 rounds wins. We don’t care how you keep score, but tally scoring or collecting correctly guessed cards does the job.     

If you don’t like a rule, change it. If you find a better way to play, go for it. Honestly, we really don’t give a sheet.     

Scared of commitment? We'll let you try the goods for free. It's as simple as downloading, printing, and scissoring 45 cards - enough for a full game. Be sure to capture your intimate game moments on tape and send it to us via social media or Kickstarter so we can put it online, and make you Kim Kardashian famous (or something close to it).

The Creators

We are, more or less, a family company which is based, more or less, out of Texas. We've been playing versions of this game for years and decided it was time to build a family empire, like the Rockefeller's, but of crude party games.  While we're a little crazy and a lot of fun, we actually have legitimate expertise and business credentials.  

Stephanie possesses design thinking skills that help us create amazing, fun experiences. She balances out the rest of our strong left brains with innovation and creativity. She holds a Master of Science degree and 2 years towards her PhD in Counseling and Development with a specialty in Children’s Play Therapy but now is a successful salesperson reaching President’s club level in her first year. She has been conceiving games and fun activities for almost 20 years. Her ideas have given us years of laughter and fun; and while she thinks we don’t know, she often works her therapy skills on us to the benefit of the entire team.       

While he denies it (because he is The Devil’s Advocate), Ryan is the intellect of our team. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Texas. He started his career as a software engineer at NASA and currently leads a team of engineers responsible for risk management and assessment. While he likes to debate almost everything and rarely admits to being wrong; he keeps us thinking and never lets us settle.  

This isn’t Matt’s first rodeo as he has designed, manufactured and launched other product ideas. Matt’s experience gave us the courage to try commercializing one of our many ideas. He graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management from the University of Tampa and currently works in product marketing. Matt brings humor and balance into the most intense situations (such as our 2-week adventure across New Zealand in a van or debating (i.e., “arguing”) the merits of Sheets & Giggles game cards.    

Alex brings class to our five-some with her sophisticated taste and unbridled maturity. She holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Healthcare Administration from the University of Houston. She works in the telecom industry because she’s smart enough to follow the money!      

Terri has a seasoned career in technology, marketing, sales, strategy, planning and operations and currently works for a global leader in cloud infrastructure and digital work space technology. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Computer Science, but that was so long ago, it really has no relevance. Terri’s the master of execution. Her successful career has been based on taking ideas from concept to reality.    

Funding & Fulfillment 

Why the Kickstarter Target? $10,000

To be honest, we need more than we targeted for, but $10,000 will get us to a point where we don’t have to sell our kidneys to fund the remaining cost of our first production run.

When will I get one?

We created a conservative schedule to make sure we don’t get hate mail from you. We have plans to have our games ready in November or sooner so, if you don’t like it, you can still regift it for the December holidays.     

Shipping

We know paying for shipping sucks, but unfortunately shipping is expensive. We did discount the game price from our future Amazon price to help cover the cost of shipping. But, when you select a pledge, don’t be surprised when you get an additional shipping charge based on your location. I hope it won’t affect our relationship.  

Please note, we are only shipping to certain countries due to international shipping cost and complexities. Who knew shipping a game to Syria would be so hard? We are offering a full print & play option for those of you outside of the U.S. who would still like the game. Obviously, you can’t print out a sheet so it’s BYOS for the print n’ play version. 

For US backers, we are offering $10 shipping. We hope you understand. 

For Canadians, we are offering $33 shipping per item. This price will cover import taxes, customs duties, and the standard “you’re a Canadian” charge. That last one is a joke; we like our friendly northern neighbours and their delicious poutine. 

For Europeans (we don’t want to take sides here but EU countries only), we are offering $52 shipping since we are currently planning on shipping from US. Depending on the country you’re in, there might be additional customs or VAT charges. For our friends and family in Great Britain, we are as baffled as you are for the future of your country; but don't feel bad, we are in the same uncertain political boat. For now, we'll include you with the European Union.   

Why Back Us? 

By backing that thang up on Kickstarter, you’ll be one of the first to have the Sheets & Giggles game. It’s like getting in on the ground floor of Google. You’ll help us determine the scale we can take this thing, whether that be one production run or start the next game empire. If it’s the later, we can start developing expansion packs, different versions, and other game ideas we’ve been playing for years.       

Thanks & Credits

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing issues. While we know these can occur, we’ve selected a well-known, reputable manufacturer who’s been around the block a few times before. We’ve planned for an additional pre-production prototype with our final manufacturer to double cover ourselves.

Shipping & Delivery. Our estimated delivery date is November 2019. There are some variables in terms of timing when it comes to anything produced abroad, including production, shipping, and customs delays. Sometimes things go awry that can’t be planned for: a supplier misses a deadline, a machine breaks down, or a shipment gets lost. However, our team has experience with developing products overseas and shipping them globally. To mitigate any delays, our rules, cards and components are fully designed and play tested and we will enter the manufacturing stage with at least one back-up supplier.

Political Disruption. As with any international manufacturer there are potential unforeseen risks with potential political embargos which, if happened, could impact our production plans requiring us to find a different manufacturer and could delay timing.

Surprise! There will no doubt be some surprises along the way but based on our combined experience and drive for success, we feel confident we will be able to overcome any obstacles including quicksand, sharks, and bees to ensure you receive your game on time.
