Whether it be team building at the office, game night with the family, or a party with your friends, we offer a uniquely social experience for all situations. Some people are born strategists, others like role-playing, and some would like nothing better than to laugh with friends. ChanceGamer offers fun interactive gaming for everyone. “Chance Games are the most fun you can have with people of all ages and backgrounds.” Chance Games offers 4 distinct win strategies: Creation, Destruction, Helping, and Sabotaging (and any combination thereof). It is a true game of strategy, teamwork, and endless laughter.

  • The core rules are simple, so that anyone can learn it: there are no age or language barriers.
  • The art is minimal, so that room is left for your wide imagination: your mind is the creator.
  • The mechanics are social, so that the true pleasure of games can shine through: Chance is a game between People.

“Whether it’s team building at the office, weekends with the family, or a party with your pals, Chance games offers profound enjoyment for all parties involved.” The winning combination for Chance games are strategy, communication, and a good dose of good’ol lady-luck. Be careful, for the so called  ‘communication’ may easily turn into heated arguments! The unexpected chance victories (or disasters!) will leave everyone gasping for breath(and more). “For more information, learn how to play.”

“Iconwar”

“Iconwar” is a card game originally designed as a team-building exercise for tech companies in Silicon Valley. When the game begins, each player is trying to win on their own. However, you will soon discover ingenious ways to trade, negotiate, and win as a team. Question: will your group learn how to cooperate, or descend into chaos?

Each icon holds an essential power of life…

  • Square holds the power to “CREATE”.
  • Triangle holds the power to “DESTROY”.
  • Circle holds the power to “PROTECT”.
  • Crescent holds the power to “STEAL”.

The above powers can help you get ahead, but only the Dragon  holds the power to “Transcend”, allowing you to gain Karma in order to win the game.

At the heart of the game is your ability to “Invoke” your cards to unleash their power. To find out more, checkout our sexy preview video:

CURSES:

Each player begins the game with 1 curse card. Every time a player goes broke they have to draw one more additional curse card. Unless they win they must act out all of their curses at the end of the game.

All curses are harmless and designed to be HILARIOUS! There are 6 main curse types:

  • Awkward = funny curses (e.g. moo like a cow)
  • Yummy = curses which involve food/drink/smelling stinky things…
  • Spotlight = curses which require a performance
  • Grown-Up = simply truth-or-dare curses
  • Do-U-Good = curses which involve exercise
  • Not-Cool = curses which will embarrass the heck out of you

Here are just a few examples:
