  "Blank This Game!” Seeking Support On Kickstarter

Romeo, MI - January 22 nd, 2017  Today Despicable Games LLC announced it's first despicable game, “ Blank This Game!

On the surface Blank This Game! appears to be just another Cards Against Humanity clone with a few seemingly minor differences. First players have four statements/questions on each card to choose from. Second rather than be provided a hand of cards with a predefined responses, Blank This Game! instead utilizes whiteboards and dry erase markers allowing players to come up with their own responses, limited only by their individual imaginations. And lastly who wrote what answer is not kept a secrete from the judge or as it is know in Blank This Game! “The Dictator”. This allows players to lobby for their answer and explain why theirs is obviously the best. 

What does all this mean? Well, it means you should never have to ask a lame question. You are never stuck with answer cards that don't fit the question. In-jokes or even the players themselves can become answers and the same answers can be used over and over leading to some very funny running jokes.  Which in the end leads to a ton of laughs, many groans and possibly a few gasps. Blank This Game! may seem like another Cards Against Humanity clone, but the minor differences makes it a new unique and hilarious party game.

The designer Wayne Lucas discusses the creation of the game “At the end of just about every gaming session we would pull out Cards Against Humanity. It was a nice easy way to end the night with a lot of laughs. After a few months of this the jokes started to get repetitive. So one night, about a year ago as we were about to start our usual game of CAH I noticed Say Anything another fun party game. And the idea struck me what if we play Say Anything with the CAH cards. We had a blast! After a while we threw out the Say Anything scoring system for a much simpler one. Then we started writing new and more interesting questions and before we knew it we had a new game. The original goal was never to produce a new game it was just to have some fun.”

Blank This Game! Is a game for 3-8 adults, but can handle even more with a second copy or by forming teams. Game length is adjustable, by increasing or decreasing the amount of cards dealt to each player at the start of the game. The average game plays in about 45-60 minutes. The suggested retail price is $30.

Blank This Game! is live on Kickstarter from January 24th to February 28th.
