Out of your group of friends, who do you think is most likely to rent a Lamborghini for their high school reunion? Who would have the hardest time talking their way out of an insane asylum? Who wants to head home with Sarah tonight? We all think we know those people would be, but when it comes time to put that information out there, we might be hesitant. Well, if you are the “might be hesitant” type, you probably don’t want to be in a game of The Voting Game. For those that have no problems letting people know what you think about them, this might be the game for you.
The Voting Game has sold out a couple times on Amazon, and now it’s over on Kickstarter in order to facilitate a new version and hopefully some upgraded components for the game. In it, a question is flipped from the center deck. This is a generic question that players then vote on who they think would best fit that question. Players anonymously play voting cards with numbers on them. The numbers represent the various players. Then the votes are revealed. If your number comes up, you try and guess who voted that you were the type to clog a friend’s toilet and not tell anyone (for example). If you guess right, you get a point. Like most party card games, you can play to whatever points level you want. The game goes on until you don’t want to play anymore, or a fistfight breaks out (depending on how the voting goes, I guess).
The main game, along with two expansions, are part of the campaign, which just launched and is set to go for another 33 days.
