Crowdsourcing Mornings: Hey Robot 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.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines

Hey Robot is a party game where two teams compete to get their smart speaker to say a specific word. It’s a bit like Codenames or Taboo, if the friend you were playing with had an encyclopedia and was also very, very drunk. It’s a hilarious, smart and strategic game for people who own a Google Home or Amazon Alexa and have no idea what the heck to do with it.

Hey Robot is created by Everybody House Games — Hilary, Mara, Frank  and James Lantz. We’re a family that’s been making games for decades, including Universal PaperclipsInvisible Inc and Drop7. We’ve always been obsessed with board games and the funny ways we interact with technology in our day-to-day lives. Hey Robot is the intersection of those interests and the result of months of trying to invent fun things to do with our Alexa.

Hey Robot plays well with any group size, from 2 players up to as many people as you can fit around a flat surface.

As of October 24th, this project has raised $8,000 of their $10,000 goal. This project has 29 days left to raise the $10,000 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $30, you will get one copy of the game.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/924858949/hey-robot?
