Million Dollars, But… The Game to Release in July

Million-Dollars

May 27, 2018

Cryptozoic Entertainment and Rooster Teeth announced a partnership to release Million Dollars, But… The Game in July.

Based on Rooster Teeth’s wildly popular series Million Dollars, But…, the addictive, easy-to-learn game has players put their morals and imagination to the test, posing the question, “What would you do for a million dollars?” After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2016 that earned over $1 million, the game has been sold online and received a limited retail release. The partnership between Cryptozoic and Rooster Teeth will result in a much wider release for Million Dollars, But… The Game, making it available at hobby stores and other retailers nationwide.

In Million Dollars, But… The Game, 2-6 players (or more) each take four black Trigger Cards and four gold Rule Cards at the start of every round. After one player is chosen as the judge, the other players each create a scenario—using one Trigger and one Rule card—that proposes a situation in which someone gets a million dollars, but must do something distasteful in return. The judge reads these scenarios aloud and, then, the other players glorify or downplay the various scenarios. The winner of the round is the player who creates the scenario that the judge decides he or she would not do. The overall winner is the first player to win five rounds.

Million Dollars, But… The Game will be available at retailers nationwide in July for a suggested retail price of $25.

May 27, 2018

We’re all too familiar with reaching that phase in a friendship when courtesy becomes a thing of the past and true colors start to show. Conversations get more personal, off-color remarks aren’t off-limits, and soon you’re finding yourself wondering just what lines you can and can’t cross with the people you’re close to (or so you thought).

At the next big get-together, you won’t have to wonder how to go about broaching those taboo topics. Learn the s#!t you’ve always wanted to know, but were too afraid to ask when you’re finally able to get your hands on Privacy from USAOpoly!

Your excuse for being intrusive is just around the corner in this upcoming party game for adults only! Prepare to pose the most outrageous questions to your peers about their personal habits, boundaries, and secrets… and then try to guess the outcome! “Yes” or “No” answer tokens are placed secretively into a closed ballot box. Correctly predict how many people said “Yes” to up to 400 barefaced questions to earn the most points and win!

Identities remain anonymous unless you can narrow down who said what. Dare to make it a rite of passage with anyone from new acquaintances to co-workers who get the best of your curiosity!

GROWL, Social Deduction Party Game by Joey Vigour is On Kickstarter Now!

Growl

April 24, 2018

There are werewolves among us! We’ll stab each other, heal each other, and try to avoid getting bitten, but when a human receives their third bite, they secretly become a wolf and turn against us! When a Night card shows up, players anonymously pass cards to their neighbors, and that’s how werewolves can strike in secret. Humans need at least one human to survive at the end of the third night to warn other villages of the werewolf outbreak.

GROWL is going strong on Kickstarter now!

“My goal with GROWL is not to supplant Werewolf or One Night Ultimate Werewolf, or The Resistance, or Secret Hitler. My goal is to make something totally different that solves major problems with the social deduction genre.” – Joey Vigour (designer of Chaosmos and GROWL)

SOCIAL DEDUCTION GAMES:
• Often require either a moderator or phone app to “host” the game
• Can take an hour to play or more.
• Require large groups of players
• Suffer from the “alpha gamer problem” where the loudest players often take charge
• Usually don’t work well if both experienced and casual players are in the same game

GROWL:
• No moderator or app
• 15 minute playtime, regardless of the number of players
• Everyone gets to bite, stab, heal, and give gold, so all players have power not just the loud people
• Takes only 5 minutes to learn, and works with all kinds of players together

Number of Players: 4-7 (4-10 with Howly Growly bonus cards)
Time Required: 15 min
Recommended Ages: 10+
Growl is $16 for the basic game, and $24 for the ‘Howly Growly Box,’ which includes all stretch goals and boosts the player count up to 10.

Jellybean Games Announces Show & Tile Party Game

Today, Jellybean Games announced the launch of the Show & Tile Kickstarter, a new game from the designers of Seikatsu.

Show & Tile is a party game for 3-6 players, suitable for all ages! Each player takes two sets of tangram tiles, picks a word, and starts building. At the end of 90 seconds, put your tiles down and try to guess everyone’s words!

Can’t draw? No problem! Tangrams have been around for centuries, and can be used to construct anything you can imagine!

“Ever since I was 8 years old I’ve been fascinated by Tangrams,” said Isaac Shalev. “For someone who can’t draw, being able to create visually feels amazing. Show & Tile is a joyous game about sharing your creativity and I can’t wait to show it to you!”

“When Isaac first showed me this game, I kept coming back to play it again and again,” said publisher Peter C. Hayward. “I must have played it hundreds of times by now, but I’m still discovering new ways to convey ideas. Everyone I play with bring something different to the game!”

As with all Jellybean Games, the rules are straightforward and easy to learn. Players simultaneously create images out of tangrams, and then try to guess what everyone else has made. Extra points are awarded to players who tackle harder words – the fun comes from the challenge of trying to represent simple objects in a restricted way.

The game contains twelve double-sided sets of tangrams, a mat for each player, a sand timer, a scorepad, and a deck of more than three hundred words. Show & Tile is for 3-6 players aged 8+, and will launch on Kickstarter on the 30th of January, 2018
