Top That Toast Card Game

$11,226

Top That Toast™ is a social game that celebrates the beauty of human expression by prompting people to stand up and give their best toasts.

How to play Top That Toast

The excitement of the game lies in the unique combinations of Tone and Topic cards. Some people are the serious type and like to be Sincere. Others are more sarcastic and like giving a good Roast. Some of us are emotional and end up telling a real Tearjerker. While others are a little shy and may be more comfortable giving a short, Ten-Word Toast. With over 1,000 card combination possibilities, there's really something for everyone. And as the rounds go on, the confidence in each player grows.

It's a one-of-a-kind game where players can truly express feelings of happiness, love, humor, nostalgia, and gratitude just by speaking their mind. You get to share good vibes and laughs with family & friends through spontaneity and creativity. Since it's portable, it's great to play at house parties, BBQs, birthdays, and hangouts with friends.

What's in the Box

Each game includes 250 cards plus a set of instructions.

50 Tone Cards: These are the light blue cards with directives on the style in which each toast is given. Tone cards range from the classic Sincere style to the more thought provoking Rhyme Time, which requires you to deliver your toast in a rhyme. There are also Top That Toast Tone cards, which require each player to deliver a toast in the same round to see who can give the best toast.

200 Topic Cards: These are the dark blue cards that state the subject of the toast. Some revolve around the players, like the youngest in the group or player with the most recent birthday, while others require on-the-spot creative thinking, like the one that got away or guilty pleasure.

The cards are 2.5 x 3.5", poker-sized cards - professionally printed and digitally cut so they're easy to use and made to last.

We worked with Random Embassy, the creative design studio out of Philadelphia, on the card and packaging design. They've designed everything from books & magazines, to website design, to album packaging and museum installations. Our logo and visual identity is the result of their great work.

The card printer we're working with is Ad Magic, out of New Jersey. They're responsible for printing a little game you may know called Cards Against Humanity, as well as the recent Kickstarter success, Exploding Kittens.

Your Support on Kickstarter...

is needed to help make Top That Toast a reality. We've been working since October 2014 developing the game, working with designers and card printers, and researching what is needed to print the game. Based on that, our goal is to raise $10,000.00 via our Kickstarter backers in order to successfully fund our first run of Top That Toast games!

Reception

The prototype has been playtested by many different groups of people, of ages ranging from 18 years old to 80+. And everyone who's played has had an incredible time giving toasts, sharing laughs, being a little silly, and sometimes even sentimental. Check out some of the images below of people having fun playing the game. 

Our Story

We're just five family members from Philadelphia who've found a lot of joy in giving and hearing toasts.

With our large family and friends, we've always found a reason to have a good time. We've been casually playing Top That Toast for years now. We'd gather together, and everyone in the group would go around in a circle toasting a particular person or life event. Friends who recently got married; a family member who graduated from school or received a promotion; a cousin who finished their 1st marathon; a relative who just battled and beat cancer - we'd feel this amazing energy as people would speak from their heart and raise their glass to these moments in life. We had a realization that toasts shouldn't be reserved for just the formal events in life like weddings and retirement ceremonies. 

A few years ago, we wondered how we could share this concept with the rest of the world. Now, we're excited to sell Top That Toast in a form that everyone can experience and enjoy. We hope it provides you, your family, and friends the same kind of joy and excitement it's given us for all of these years.

Risks and challenges

Top That Toast is not too complicated to manufacture, since it consists of 250 cards and the game box. We're already working with our friends at Ad Magic to ensure that all of our backers receive the game pretty quickly once the campaign ends.

Since we do not have any other active Kickstarter projects,100% of our team's focus is on making sure we fulfill our orders timely and communicate often with our backers. We will be keeping everyone up to date as we hit project milestones. Any unforeseen issues will be quickly addressed by our team and resolved.
