About

 AndThen™... is a hilarious group writing game that brings out your group's collective humor and creativity, combines it into unique and funny stories...about each other! 

It's a great icebreaker and the perfect activity to get family, friends, coworkers, or random strangers...stuck on an elevator...brainstorming and laughing together.  

HOW TO PLAY

AndThen... is easy to learn after one quick practice round.  Just sit in a circle, and take turns writing in the flip-books with the dry-erase markers provided.  Keep writing and passing the books around the circle until all the stories are complete.  

Then mix the flip-books up, pass them back out, and take turns reading the resulting stories to the group.     

At the end of each round, erase the flip-books, and play again. 

HOW TO WIN

Perhaps the winner is the person who stars in the "best" story(s), or the player who wrote the funniest one-liner(s).  If you must have a winner, then before each round, just have the group decide how the winner(s) will be determined.

And definitely try playing AndThen... just for fun!  The funniest stories are always an uncanny combo of just the right people, ideas, and random, collaborative effort.  Ultimately if everyone's laughing, then mission accomplished!

Challenge Your Creativity

Whether you are a prolific writer or a human of few words, you'll find that AndThen... naturally encourages creativity and humor.   Have a blast coming up with new ideas and throwing them into the mix.  If you want any pointers or an extra challenge, you'll find additional ideas inside the back cover to help with your brainstorms.  

For example, if you ever have writer's block in AndThen..., just think of a random animal and you're all set! 

No llamas were injured in the creation of this Kickstarter campaign (but a few were visibly offended).

Risks and challenges

PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THE ESTIMATED DELIVERY DATE WHEN YOU MAKE YOUR PLEDGE!
Due to manufacturing and shipping schedules, only the "early-bird" pledges can be delivered within North America by the end of 2018 (unless there are other unforeseen delays, like pirates take over the ship or something. Aargh!). It will take a few more months to deliver awards for any pledges that are not "early bird" pledges.

TO ORDER ADDITIONAL QUANTITIES...
For logistical reasons, only the quantities listed in the pledges are available at this time. After the Kickstarter campaign ends, please visit www.somethingcreativehere.com to purchase any additional copies you'd like.
