About the Drinking Quest Series

Hello, I'm Jason Anarchy the creator of the Drinking Quest series.  It's a quirky comedy series that finds the perfect blend of Tabletop RPG and Drinking Game.  Drinking Quest: The Original Drinking RPG and Drinking Quest 2: Yeddy Vedder's Yeti Adventure were each genre busting independent hits and this third game will complete the trilogy.

Having game nights and drinking with my friends is one of my favourite things in life. It's something I'm very passionate about.  I've been the perpetual GM my whole life and have made thousands of adventures, always tinged with humour to stay in my comfort zone.  My goal was to capture this very specific style of game night (RPG, Drinking, Quick Witted Comedy) and make it a cult game that stands on it's own in the Tabletop Gaming industry.

I really wanted to make sure that the Drinking Quest games stood on their own as comedy games first beyond the "Drinking meets RPG" mechanics.  I've always strived to have additional layers of depth with the story and humour beyond what the players expect.  There is a layer of humour that I would describe as surface level.  Then we have a layer where the player would say "Hey I didn't notice that before, that's awesome" and then there is the layer where I really dig deep into my psyche to try and challenge the players perception of themselves and the world.

Also... DRINKING IS FUN!

So here are the many options available to you!

*** Please note that shipping charges need to be added onto the total in most tiers***

 

Early Bird Special: First 250 Backers of Hard Copies get a signed game by series creator Jason Anarchy.

Stretch Goals:

$20,000 - Everyone who ordered a physical copy of the game gets a Drinking Quest Fridge Magnet portraying an epic battle scene.  This is not something that simply has a logo slapped on it.

$30,000 - Everyone who ordered a physical copy of the game gets a Drinking Quest Key Chain Bottle Opener.  These are different than the "What Would Chuglox Do?" key chains we had going for a while.  It will have some kind of life advice or credo from the game like "Absolute Power is Awesome".

$40,000 - Everyone at the $65 level gets a signed picture of the creator's fist. This can be used to intimidate your enemies or just have framed on your desk at work.  We would post a picture but we don't want to break the internet.  This comes in a really stylish plastic frame.

$60,000 - Dice Upgrade - All three games will get a dice upgrade.  It changes from a simple D6 system to a simple D4, D6, D8 system.  It's something we've always wanted to do but just didn't have the budget for it.

A common question that might come up is "Why not have an expansion or more cards?".  I don't believe in that model, it's bad for the players.  I want everyone to have a consistently entertaining experience and I didn't want to hold anything back.

What am I funding?

This would cover the first run of Drinking Quest 3 games and some additional copies of Drinking Quest 1 and 2 (which are nearly sold out).  Not only would this allow the completion of the planned trilogy but also allow the quality to jump from "Good for an indie game" to "It's good for any game".  With a group funding campaign, everyone who wants a game can get one and with all kinds of great perks! 

The quality of boxes will change to hard "Board Game" style boxes while keeping the condensed size that is easy to bring to a pub or a friends house. Also we have a colourist on board this time so every card for Drinking Quest 3 will be full colour.  The cards will also increase in size slightly and maintain the same high quality thickness and coating introduced in the second edition Drinking Quest 1 and 2's.

We've also had a lot of requests for t-shirts and extra merch so this gives an option to those hardcore fans.

I also wanted to have some ridiculous types of perks and stretch goals and really turn the group funding paradigm on it's head while also offering several tiers that have a lot of value for backers.

The Impact

Drinking Quest is a series that breaks all the rules of the Tabletop Gaming industry.  Beyond the drinking themes, these games are made for Hardcore Nerds (using the term affectionately).
 
Disruptive innovation is good for any industry.

Drinking Quest games have always stood for responsible drinking.  We aim to facilitate a good time with your friends, not cause anyone to harm themselves.  Regardless of the suggested rules, please know your limits and drink responsibly.  (A typical game over the course of a couple of hours averages 2 or 3 chugs.) Please Quest Responsibly!
 
Thank you to all backers and feel free to ask questions in the message boards! I will tackle subjects ranging from legitimate questions about the game to questions about how awesome my biceps are.  Let's have fun with this :)

    Tweet Story

    I will tweet about you every day for a full year. I can tweet about real stuff if you want but I think it would be funny to just make up stories and see where these 365 days take us. If a day is missed then double tweets will happen the following day. You also get everything in the $100 tier and don't need to worry about shipping. When it comes to tabletop gaming, I'm kind of a big deal on Twitter.

    Let's Party

    I will fly out to where you live and hang out with you for an entire weekend. We can drink, play tabletop games, sort tax receipts - IT'S ALL UP TO YOU! I guarantee you'll get some one of a kind stories from this. I tend to talk philosophy and hug people after about 7 whiskeys or so, you have been warned. But let me be clear - no sexy stuff! Also you get everything in the previous tier (except for the tattoo) and you don't need to pay any extra shipping because you made a high roller donation.
