About

IF YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF TO BE A "GOOD" HUMAN BEING, LOOK AWAY NOW.

After years of playing computer and tabletop games with friends and family, we realised that the fun of playing isn't necessarily the games themselves... it's the banter, insults and laughs that fly back and forth when you're competing to win.

But increasingly in this day and age, "snowflakes" are getting offended on other people's behalf, and are trying to influence what we can and can't joke about.

So we wanted to create a game that not only generates banter among friends, but also counteracts the excessively-sensitive snowflake movement.

Thus, The Insults Game was made. 


AS SEEN IN...


OVERVIEW

What funny insults can you make using the cards above?

The Insults Game has been grasped quickly by players who have tested it, so there is minimal faff before playing.

The player that submits the best insult, based on how personal, horrible, and hilarious it is, receives the red card as a token of their abusive skills. The game ends whenever you decide (or when someone stomps off in a huff); the player with the most red cards is crowned "the worst person in the room", and will undoubtedly have fewer friends than they started with.

There are over one million possible combinations of cards, so the game will never run out of funny insults.


CARD TYPES

The cards can be broken down into three types:

1. Introductions (red cards), which are read out at the start of each round.

2. Determiners and Connectives (green cards), which are spread face-up on the table. Determiners are cards such as "a", "the", and "my", and Connectives are cards such as "and", "inside", and "with".

3. Adjectives and Nouns (blue cards), which are spread face-down on the table. Players maintain 10 blue cards in their hands at all times.

COMPARISON WITH OTHER RUDE CARD GAMES

Many people have asked us, "how are you different to games like Cards Against Humanity?"

And they are right to ask it. CAH is the founding father of rude card games, and The Insults Game is similar in that it is also a "politically-incorrect" card game.

Differentiating The Insults Game from other games has been a really important part of our design and trial process. The feedback we have received from players has been positive, highlighting two key factors which set The Insults Game apart:

1. Having a core theme that revolves around abuse means The Insults Game feels different every time you play it, depending on the people you are with and the new inside jokes you can make.

2. Players are responsible for creating their own insults by combining cards - their abuse is limited only by their imaginations, making this a really fun process in itself. This responsibility also gives The Insults Game an added element of guilt (or pride, depending on how twisted you are).

THE REWARDS

The Card Game

The Insults Game is comprised of 310 gloriously atrocious cards, designed with optimal insult power in mind. It also contains instructions, which include "drinking rules" so that you can fuel your alcoholism throughout all the abuse. The box is nice and compact, so you can take The Insults Game to your friends' (for now) houses.

The Insults Game is best played with 4-8 players, and the recommended age restriction is 18 and up... obviously.

Personalised Insult Cards

Everyone has inside jokes, and if you have your very own insult that you use for your friends or family, this is your chance to create your own card.

Since insults are created using a combination of different card categories, we can create unique cards for you based on a particular theme, person, location, etc. of your choosing.

Access to the Full App (Android and iPhone)

The app will work as follows:

If you have bought the app, you can create game "rooms" that other people can join. Everyone in your room can play the game together. This is the version of the app that is included in our rewards.

Initially there will be two different game modes:

1. Classic - this will be a direct copy of the card game.

2. Bold - players will be able to type their own insults, unrestricted.

Custom-Designed Version of the Card Game

Following a consultation with the maker, George, a custom version of the game will be created specifically for you. This means you will be able to choose the design of the box and card backgrounds, using photos and colours of your choice.

Risks and challenges

We know Christmas is a great time for playing tabletop games, so we are determined to corrupt your family fun by getting The Insults Game to you before Christmas Day. We already have final designs ready, and production and distribution channels in place. All we need now is your funding to get the ball rolling!
