Crowdsourcing Mornings: Meat Sweats The 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

Let’s get right to the meat of why we did this… We love light social games full of manipulation and backstabbing, but a number of these games have challenges that reduce player enjoyment. This is why we created a game that gives us (and our friends) exactly what we want, in a theme near and dear to our mostly clogged hearts.  If you like card games and/or meat, please help us make this game a reality. We think you and your friends will love it as much as we do.

Have you ever spent more time teaching and setting up than actually playing the game? No thank you. Set-up, play, and clean-up take about 15 minutes regardless of player count! Simply play through one round and everyone gets it.

Do you ever feel that as the [smartest, loudest, crabbiest, happiest] person in the room, you have a target on your face when playing “attack/defense” style social games? Well, bring it on! When one or more players hit you with the meat sweats, you’re out for the round, but you get to keep the card… making you more powerful later on.

Do you have trouble staying awake or keeping friends engaged while waiting for your turn? So long, sleepers… It’s almost always your turn because 90% of this game is spent in simultaneous play so everyone remains engaged.

Does “Stop looking at my score pile!” sound familiar? All scoring cards have two possible point values to eliminate “advanced” players from knowing everyone’s score before they do. Ah, luck, the great equalizer.

As of January 2nd, this project has raised $4,000 of their $3,213 goal. This project has 4 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $1, you will get project updates.  For a pledge of $25, you will get one copy of the game.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oakheartgames/meat-sweats-the-game?
