At first glance, “Room Party: The GAME!” is one of the most wittiest card games ever.
This card game caters best to convention goers. It doesn’t matter if you are a Trekkie or a Furry, so long as you are or have been a con-goer, you’d get the gist of the cards quite easily.
I have attended a couple of conventions in the past, and amidst the basketful of good experiences, there’s bound to be some bad apples of the bunch that elicits awkward scenarios. When you put a whole bunch of eccentric nerdy and geeky folks in a concentrated space, be it the local convention centre or the confines of the hotel room hosting the said convention, positive and negatively embarrassing things are bound to happen.
And this is where the “story” background of “Room Party: The GAME!” comes in. To be short, it’s a card game where 2+ players take turns drawing cards, playing cards that fall into one of four categories: people, item, event, and interrupt. Each card has a + or a – effect. You use the + to make your “party” the best, while using the – cards to sabotage other players’ parties.
Shame I didn’t get to attend Comic-Con, I’m still looking for a job and I’m not going to burn the least of my budget on a flight, hotel, and convention package. I might not be able to contribute monetarily to this project, but hey, if you are interested, help these guys out. Remember my mention of Furries above? That’s going to be their next stretch goal at $15k! The current donation pool stands at $11,430.
