The holiday season is nigh upon us! Everyone is already putting up lights and Christmas music is playing because America forgot Thanksgiving existed or something. But screw it, let’s get into the spirit.

This Black Friday weekend, November 29-December 1 we’ll be offering deals on Room Party in our Storenvy shop!

By using the coupon code TURKEY at checkout you’ll receive 20% off anything you buy in the Room Party shop. It’s our first sale ever, so you’ll be getting Room Party cheaper than anyone. See, waiting nearly a year to get it paid off! Check out the store, Room Party makes a great stocking stuffer.

In other news, over the next six months Room Party will be travelling to numerous conventions. There we’ll be selling the game, signing autographs, and meeting the crazy, geeky, awesome people that play Room Party. It’s one of our favorite parts of the job.

Preorders – Get a Bonus Pack!

Hey everyone! We’re happy to announce that Room Party goes on sale to the general public on February 22. You’ll be able to purchase it online (and if you’re going to TFF you can buy it in person and make awkward small talk with us!).

But BEFORE THAT we’re offering a small batch of pre-orders THIS MONDAY, February 3. These will be the first decks we send out that are not for Kickstarter backers. But wait there’s more! The first 50 people to preorder both the core deck and the expansion will get one of the limited edition bonus packs!

Photo-HipstersThe bonus pack contains 22 cards, featuring all the bonuses from our Kickstarter campaign. That includes the Hipster pack, the custom cards, the guest artists, and the blank cards. They’re some of the best cards in the game, but they’re super rare. Oh, and they’re all gold foil printed, so they’re also hella ballin’.

“HOW DO I GET THOSE?!” you cry!

Follow us on Twitter @RoomPartyGame so you can see the announcement for when the store goes live on Monday, February 3. Then get in there and preorder the game and expansion. It’s that easy! While you’re there you can also buy hot t-shirts and shot glasses.

See you Monday!

Updates on Shipping

We’re happy to announce that the cards have been printed, and are currently on their way to the US. We don’t have specific dates yet, but we’ve been told that the majority of the Decks should arrive in early February.

RP-fulldeck

We did receive a *very* limited number of decks in late December, enough for us to confirm the quality of the cards and printing (it’s great!), and have some available for pickup at Further Confusion. We have also received all of the finished items for the Kickstarter reward levels. At this point, once we get those decks in-house, we’re good to go! Here is what you can expect over the next couple of months:

The bulk shipment of Decks and stretch goal awards will begin shipping in mid February.

If you opted for pickup at one of our upcoming conventions, we will be sending you a separate e-mail with the pickup details.

We will be launching a pre-order website in late January for those folks that would like to purchase additional decks. Details will go out once the site is setup.

RP-hipstersThe Room Party team is as excited as you are to get these games in your hands. Shipping will take some time, though, so we appreciate your patience. It’s been a long time in coming, but trust us, it’s been worth the wait. Attached are some photos of the actual deck. Pretty groovy, huh? We’re close!

Happy Holidays from Room Party!

Hey Partiers,

We hope you’re all wearing ugly sweaters, adding copious amounts of booze to your eggnog, and avoiding all your annoying relatives. For those of you celebrating Chanukah, the same all applies, but you have latkes so it’s like a million times better.

2014 is going to be a big year for us. The first shipment of Room Party comes mid-January, and we’ll spend the next few weeks after that sending out the game to all you cool people. We’ll be at both Further Confusion in San Jose in January, AND Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle in March, so if you’re at either, come find us and say hi!

Have a great new years everyone, thanks for helping us make Room Party awesome!

Progress Report

Hey Partiers!

Quick update for y’all. Currently, Room Party, the expansion, and the bonus pack are off galavanting through China, replicating themselves like nanobots before they invade America and infest your homes (we don’t know how printing presses work).

The game is scheduled to arrive to us, in chunks, during January, and we will send it along to you.

As we get closer to launch, more updates will be coming here on the blog, rather than through Kickstarter. We don’t want to spam you with updates, so we’ll be limiting the Kickstarter updates to only important things.

And if you want more updates from the Room Party team, follow @RoomPartyGame on Twitter.

Follow us on Facebook too!

We also have an Instagram thingy.

The Guest Artists – Part 2

Hey all you super cool Kickstarter backers! Got another update to tantalize you, and two more guest artists!

Ursula Vernon – Sentient Internet Meme

Before Ursula Vernon was winning Hugo Awards for her amazing graphic story series Digger, or writing beloved children’s books, she was inadvertently creating one of our favorite Internet memes, LOLWUT. The surrealist, absurdist pear is here to make your Room Party that much more confusing and insane.

 

 

Kent Mudle – Mini-Boss

Kent Mudle wears numerous hats. He’s the writer and artist for the dark, silly, artsy, adventure comic Beret as well as being an artist at acclaimed video game developer Telltale Games (You like the Walking Dead and the Wolf Among Us? Us too!). Kent brings his love of video games and great style to the Mini-Boss card, a dastardly villain so deadly, it probably takes THREE good jumps to dispose of him.

 

Remember that you can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram @RoomPartyGame. You should do that, it’s pretty rad.

The Guest Artists – Part 1

Hey Room Partiers,

As promised, we’ve got an update for you regarding the awesome Guest Artist Pack you all helped us achieve. We’ve been recruiting artists from all manners of geek culture, and we’re pretty thrilled. Check out the first two cards, exclusive to our Kickstarter backers.

Zach Weinersmith – Candy From a Stranger

Zach is the hilariously genius creator of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, http://www.smbc-comics.com/ and overall awesome dude. Seriously go read that comic, it’s brilliant.

What also makes Zach awesome is that he created not just a funny and frightening card, but one that adds a bit of random chance to the game. It’s one of our favorite cards in the entire deck, including the ones we created.

Candy from a Stranger, and Super Hero

Matt Haley – Superhero

Matt Haley is a comic industry vet, doing work for Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse. Recently he is the artist of “Sarah Silverman’s “We Are Miracles” HBO special airing this month, Stan Lee’s “Verticus” iOS game, and the Morgan Spurlock documentary “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope”. You can check out his website at http://www.matthaley.com

We really wanted to have a traditional classic comic book bonus card, and Matt is definitely the guy for it. The dude has been making awesome comic art for years, including the awesome Elseworld Supergirl/Batgirl team-up. Check out how rad and buff (and hot) that superhero is.

 

We’re so excited to be able to do something special like this for our backers, and all the guest artists have been amazing. These are just two of the guest artists included in the Kickstarter bonus pack. We’ll announce a few more next week!

Project Update!

Greetings Room Party Fans!

Wow does time fly. Our sincerest apologies for the radio silence. Life emergencies and unforeseen circumstances got in the way of our projects.

But we’re still here and kicking, and Room Party is back on track! So what’s been happening these last couple months?

As you all recall our KS did so well we added a expansion pack as a stretch goal. In our hubris we kind of forgot how much work goes into creating an entire additional set of cards with rules. We’ve been hard at work creating new cards, balancing the game, and making sure everything is as hilarious and fun as the Room Party Base set.

Check out some of the unseen cards for the Core Deck to whet your appetite!

Room Party : Funny Internet Videos Room Party: High Floor

Our current release goal is Mid-January 2014.  That sounds far away, but believe us, it’s coming FAST. We will keep you updated on our progress and any changes.

Our Guest Artist pack is AMAZING. We’ve got some incredible talent in it. Our next update will be about that, and will reveal some of the cards that only the super cool Kickstarter people get!

You can expect weekly updates from us from now until the game’s release, right here, on Twitter, or through your email if you’re one of the KickStarter donators!

Thanks for your patience, everyone! We’re so glad you guys are excited for the game. We can’t wait for you all to play!
