In Dare Duel two players take turns drawing cards and selecting words or phrases to create sexy dares to act out.
With hundreds of different words and phrases to choose from, the combinations are almost endless, making every game unique.
Sexual preference does not matter, and you can either enjoy the game with your partner or a group of friends.
For more information about how to play you can watch the video above and/or download a PDF with the official rules. Below you can read about the different pledge levels, shipping information, and of course learn about who Tingletouch Games are.
Please note that since we're Swedish the base currency for this project is in Swedish Crowns (SEK). Thankfully, Kickstarter now provides auto-translation of currencies and you can select the one you prefer at the bottom right of the page.
We will also provide estimates in USD below, and in USD, EUR and GBP in the pledge levels section to the right. Right now 1 USD is approximately 8.10 SEK, but this of course varies slightly as exchange rates change.
Below the pledge levels you will also find information about shipping costs to different parts of the world.
If you want two copies of Dare Duel, or another pledge level, simply add the same amount to your pledge. For example if you've pledged SEK 150 for Dare Duel, add an additional SEK 150 to get a second copy. Shipping costs are not affected when adding a second copy, you still pay shipping for one copy only. If you want more than two copies of a pledge level, please send us a message here on Kickstarter and we'll calculate shipping costs for you.
Below you can learn more about the deluxe edition of Dare Duel, our other two games Bedroom Battle and Luck & Love, as well as our Kickstarter exclusive Big Box of Love.
DARE DUEL DELUXE
If you select the Dare Duel Deluxe pledge level you will receive Dare Duel together with a custom-made card holder and a brand new mini expansion called Secret Missions.
Secret Missions Mini Expansion
This is a mini expansion containing 10 square cards with a new twist to the game. It works like this: Before the start of the game each player draws one card from the Secret Missions pile without showing their opponent. Each card has special goal that the players can try to achieve during the game, and if they succeed they get to select one of two naughty rewards found on the card. In total this expansion adds 10 unique missions and 20 unique, and very sexy, rewards to win.
The Card Holder
The card holder is made of durable clear plastic and it's custom-made to fit especially for the cards in Dare Duel. Not only does it look nice, it's also really stable which is very useful when playing the game on an unstable surface, for example in a bed.
Both the mini expansion and the card holder are exclusive to our Kickstarter backers only and will not be available anywhere else. If you have selected the 3 Sex Games in a Bundle or Big Box of Love pledge level you can get the mini expansions and the card holder as an addon. Please see the addons section below for more information about that. You can also check out the three high resolution product images below for a closer view of what you get in the deluxe edition.
Bedroom Battle is a fun card drafting game for two players of any gender where you compete to win sexy favors from each other. Check out the high resolution product images below or learn more on the Kickstarter campaign page for Bedroom Battle.
LUCK & LOVE
Meet Yahtzee’s sexy younger cousin, a game where two players roll six dice in order to score different dice combinations found on score pads. Not only do they win points, but more importantly they also win sexy favors from each other. Check out the high resolution product images below or learn more on the Kickstarter campaign page for Luck & Love.
BIG BOX OF LOVE
The Big Box of Love is a special Kickstarter exclusive box that you can only get during our Kickstarter campaigns. It contains all the products we have released to date, and also a number of fun and sexy toys that are quite often needed in our games. The Big Box of Love contains:
- Dare Duel.
- Bedroom Battle.
- Luck & Love.
- Naughty Winter Nights (expansion deck for Bedroom Battle).
- Hot Summer Days (expansion deck for Bedroom Battle).
- A pair of durable and soft black leather handcuffs.
- A sleek silk blindfold.
- A black leather whip.
- A hand-written thank you card.
- An exclusive and sturdy black box with magnetic lock to store it all in.
Check out the high resolution product images below to see everything you get if you pick this pledge level.
Addons are simple, just add the amounts below (in SEK) to your pledge and we will add the selected items to your shipment. No other action is needed. And don't worry, you will be able to confirm that we got it right after the campaign ends. Note that shipping costs are NOT affected by these addons.
For example: You live in Zone 1 (see the shipping chart below) and have selected the Dare Duel Deluxe pledge level, and you also want our Bedroom Battle game as well as the two expansions for Bedroom Battle. Your base pledge is SEK 290 for Dare Duel Deluxe. You then add SEK 205 for Bedroom Battle to your pledge and SEK 135 for the expansions for a total pledge of SEK 630 ($75). When you check out a shipping cost of SEK 50 ($6) is added.
If you have any questions about the addons or how to add them to your pledge, just send us a message here on Kickstarter.
In most of our previous campaigns we've included free shipping, but based on our experiences we now feel that the best and most fair thing to do is to have a lower base price and then add the actual shipping costs for various parts of the world, because, unfortunately shipping costs vary greatly for different parts of the world. Please consult the chart below to see what shipping will cost for you. You can of course always see the total cost before paying as well.
As you can see the cost for the countries not listed in Zone 1 or Zone 2 is rather high, but unfortunately we have learned the hard way that it is costly to send things safely to many parts of the world, and we don't want your game(s) to become lost.
US and EU backers will not have to worry about customs at all. We're partnering with Quartermaster Logistics who will handle fulfilment to all our US backers, and since we are in the EU we will handle fulfilment to all EU backers ourselves.
For backers in Canada, non-EU Europe, Australia and New Zealand we have never experienced any issues with customs or customs fees, but should that happen we promise that we will handle ALL costs related to customs for you. That means that we can use these nice stickers.
For the rest of the world any fees related to customs will be your responsibility. This has however never been a problem during our previous campaigns, so most likely you will not pay more than our shipping fee.
Everything we want to have in the game is already included in the funding goal, but it's also a little boring to not have anything to aim for at all. So, we've come up with something that will be exclusive to our backers, and something that is both useful for the game and a way for us to say thank you for your support.
We're only going to have one stretch goal this campaign, and if we hit it, we will include an extra large and Kickstarter exclusive Common Words card to ALL backers. And don't worry, it will fit inside the game box.
Adding this card won't have a big effect on the game of course, but the Common Words card is the most used card in the game, and shared between both players, so the extra large size will be useful. To make it special we're also painting it "Tingletouch pink", instead of the regular green color, and it will also come with a little thank you-message from us at the bottom. If you don't like this card you can of course use the standard card instead, but we hope you will like it, and if nothing else it makes your game special compared to the retail version.
We do everything we can to spread the word about our campaign, but we also kindly ask for your help letting more people know about this awesome game. And your help will of course be rewarded, so this is our plan - help us reach the below goal before the deadline, and we will add 1 more card to the Secret Missions mini expansion which is available either in the Dare Duel Deluxe pledge or as an addon.
As soon as we reach a goal, we will add a new one, with a new deadline, and if we reach that one, we'll add another card to the expansion, and so on. We started at 10 cards, and after hitting all our goals the expansion will now contain 15 cards. Thank you everyone who has helped out!
Even if we have hit all our achievements you can still help us share the campaign of course. This is what you can do:
CONVINCE A FRIEND TO BACK US, or a few, using any means possible. Even if it's only for a dollar. Every backer counts, and who knows, maybe they'll become interested in upgrading their pledge too.

And here's a shorter version: http://kck.st/2EL1Hid
For those of you who already own the current version of Dare Duel, or those of you who are simply curious by nature, you may wonder why we are doing a second printing and what we are changing compared to the first version?
The main reason for a second printing is because we only have about a hundred copies left of the 3.000 we printed a little over a year ago. So, we feel this is a perfect opportunity to upgrade some things that we were not able to do when printing the first version. We're also changing the design of the box to look a bit more classy and fit the game better. Here's a list of what we are changing:
- We're upgrading the box from a simple tuck-box to a much more sturdy and good-looking partial telescopic box with a nice little insert.
- We're including a 100-page notepad that players can use to write down their dares, something the first version did not have.
- We're printing the rules in color instead of black and white, and we're also upgrading the paper quality.
- We're changing the graphic style and box artwork to make it more obvious that Dare Duel is a word game, and that it's for adults.
We are however NOT changing anything about the game itself or the rules since we still think Dare Duel is a very good game. It just needs a few cosmetic improvements.
Tingletouch Games is Magnus and Elin Holmgren. We’re in our mid-30s and we’ve been glued to each other since 2002, and in 2016 we finally got married (It's still weird to share the same last name). We’re both from the deep-frozen northern parts of Sweden, but we’ve lived just outside the capital Stockholm for 15 years now.
We started Tingletouch Games about three years ago, and our goal is to create sexy and romantic games for couples that are not only sexy, but also fun to play. We’ve run successful Kickstarter campaigns for all our games and we're really grateful for all the support we have received from our backers. We would not be able to make our games without you.
Last spring we both decided to become full-time game designers and expanded our business by starting up Mindmade Games, which is the name we will use when creating fun games that everyone can play. Last year we ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for our first non-sexy game Debatable.
Elin is a former restaurant manager who knows how to run a business and Magnus has previously worked as a film editor and graphic designer, but most importantly we both love playing games. Everything from fun simple card games to serious strategic board games. Some of our favorite games are Agricola, Puerto Rico, Pandemic and Twilight Imperium, to name a few.
For the last 8 months we've been able to call ourselves professional game designers, and we think that's pretty cool. But we could not do it without Kickstarter and our beloved backers, so we hope you want to help us making this project a reality as well.

Risks and challenges
This will be our sixth Kickstarter campaign, and we can actually say that we know what we are doing now. Of course every new project will have new challenges, but we feel we have enough experience to overcome whatever challenges this project has in store for us. We know what we need to do, who to work with, and some of the many pitfalls to avoid. Unless there is some type of natural disaster or similar, you will get your game(s)!
Finally, don’t hesitate to ask any questions you want about our campaign and we’ll reply as quickly as we can.
Thank you for reading all the way here!
