WHISKEY BUSINESS! A Fun Strategic Tabletop Party Dice Game!

$18,059

285

WHISKEY BUSINESS! is a fun, strategic dice game in which you compete to produce the most barrels of Irish Whiskey, Scotch Whisky, Canadian Rye and Kentucky Bourbon. You'll soon learn that the whiskey business is a risky business as you push for more barrels, face spoilage or get "3 Sheets To The Wind" and possibly lose what you've made! You’ll have until LAST CALL to make or steal the most barrels you can. 

Do I Have To Drink Whiskey?

While this game IS the perfect thing to play while sipping on a few fingers of your favorite spirit, no drinking is actually required. It's honestly fun for all ages (Lars's 3-year old niece loves it!!) Just don't let the kids read the optional drinking rules. READ THE RULES HERE.

What's Inside? 

 
  • 1 Whiskey tumbler (for rolling the dice)
  • 1 “Flag” die 
  • 6 “Ingredients” dice 
  • 24 Barrels (green = Irish Whiskey, white = Bourbon, red = Rye, blue = Scotch)
  • 6 Coasters (these are where you keep score, using your barrels)
  • 6 Game boards (this is the "distillery" where you place your ingredients according to the provided recipes)
  • 18 “Sheet to the Wind” tokens
  • Rules

Who Are You People?

We're Lars and Audra - creators of UNCORKED! Games. This is the third game we've created, after Read Between The Wines! (formerly UNCORKED!) and Brew Ha Ha! Both were successfully funded on Kickstarter thanks to more than 1,000 incredibly generous backers like you! This campaign, we're also making our previous games available at major discounts so that we can fund the first batch of WHISKEY BUSINESS! The game is complete and ready to print. We are committed to getting your copies to you in time for Christmas, so you can give the gift of gaming this holiday season! Help us complete the "sophisticated drinking game" trifecta and take a shot on WHISKEY BIZ! 

In case you want to see more of Lars's hilarious attempt at Irish and Pirate speak, check out the full length WHISKEY BUSINESS! video!

Risks and challenges

We are seeking successful funding on our 4th game on Kickstarter and are proud of the great games this platform his helped us launch into the world. With WHISKEY BUSINESS! we have never been so prepared with a game before and are just sent the final design files to the manufacturer. Now we just need your support to help fund the first run of our great new game!

We are hopeful that by the time our games arrive the US trade war will have died down. But we are prepared to pay a 10% tariff (let's pray it doesn't rise to 25%) to get our games into the country and getting your games on Kickstarter now means you won't be subject to the increased prices that a trade war could trigger in the future. We think everyone could just get along if they all sat down for a friendly game of WHISKEY BUSINESS! Cheers!!
