What is a SMOOSH?

Have you ever heard two words and said to yourself, "I could just jam those two words together and save myself so much time!"?  Well, that's what SMOOSHING is all about, but in an absurd and creative manner. 

I've created a game where you and your friends can put your wits to the test and create some seriously funny and creative SMOOSHES. It's Simple:

SMOOSH - Rules
SMOOSH - Rules

First, the Smoodge (SMOOSH Judge) draws the top 2 category cards from the deck and places them face up. The other players have a minute to think of something from each category and SMOOSH them together. They write their answers down and hand them over to the Smoodge. The Smoodge reads them aloud and picks their favorite one. The player that wrote the best SMOOSH gets both SMOOSH cards.  First to 10 cards wins!

SMOOSH: Rapper + Movie Theater Snacks
SMOOSH: Rapper + Movie Theater Snacks

Say the two category cards are Famous Rappers & Snack Foods.  Some examples could be: Luda-Crisps, Em & Ems, Skittle Jon, Pop-Corn-Ye West.

My name is Cory and SMOOSH is my first game, and with it brings a TON of excitement... and anxiety. I am so passionate about making games and Founded my Company, Wits & Giggles Gaming LLC, where I plan to bring you many more fun and creative games.  I hope that you enjoy what my brain pukes up.

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarter, as well as my first published game. I am so excited, but nervous as well. At least 30 friends and I have play tested the heck out of the game and I am very confident that it is fun, witty, and will have you very surprised at what you and your friends come up with. The game is completed and ready for print, but it is a huge monetary leap for me and my fledgling company, which is hopefully where you come in!
