Crowdsourcing Mornings: Half Truth Board Game

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Half Truth is a party game for all ages and people, created by legendary game designer Richard Garfield and 74-time Jeopardy winner Ken Jennings. With art by well-known artist Ian O’Toole, the game comes with 500 trivia question cards and each card has a category on it, like “Animals with blue tongues.” There are six possible answers, three right and three wrong, and players have to place bets on answers they believe are correct. Players are usually surprised by how well they do. We’re all smarter than we think.

The game has been evolving for the past 13 years. It’s been a process of writing questions, playtesting them and figuring out how the scoring works best.  The game was initially called Inconceivable! but after several iterations, we decided to go with the name Half Truth since it ties more closely with gameplay.

As of August 30th, this project has raised $150,000 of their $10,000 goal. This project has 20 days left to raise as much as it can.  For a pledge of $5, you will get access to the pledge manager.  For a pledge of $30, you will get one game.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/halftruthgame/half-truth?
