Game of Phones

Game of Phones is a great-looking card game in the home stretch of its Kickstarter campaign. It resembles Cards Against Humanity or Apples to Apples in that a judge plays a single challenge card, and decides which response from the other players he or she likes best. The difference here is that instead of playing cards as a response, players meet challenges with their phones. This means doing stuff like showing the last picture they took, the most yuppie app they have installed, or be the first to get a Like on an Instagram picture. The winner gets the card, and the first to gather ten cards wins.

I really like this idea because it highlights phones as the fun, connected objects they are, not some antisocial black hole that they're often perceived as. Plus, in larger groups after a few drinks, this game is bound to be tons of fun. The Game of Phones developers have already blasted through their modest funding goal of $6,000, but if you want to be among the first to get a deck, the entry-level funding tier of $25 will get you one with free shipping within the U.S. If you're feeling generous, there are still a few $100 tier rewards left, which include a swanky laser-etched rosewood box.

Head on over to the Game of Phones Kickstarter page to pledge now, before the campaign wraps up on April 24. Who's in?
