Previously we reported on the fact Hasbro was running another set of Indigogo campaigns as part of their Next Great Game series of contests. Now they have announced a winner, and this time around it’s the story telling game, The Plot Thickens. The Plot Thickens is a collaborative story telling game where you are telling a story using cards that represent people, places, and things. The more plot points you are able to fit into your story, the more likely you are to be able to tell the ending, while the player who got referenced to the most gets to name it.
Color me skeptical that this will be the next great game, but it could still at least be a fun game to play so I don’t think Hasbro’s gone off the rails just yet. In the mean time, the game creators will take their prize of $25,000 and a trip to Hasbro HQ to finish development of the game for release into the mass market in 2017.
