If I told you there was another social/party game on Kickstarter, you might not be too excited. But, what if I told you the game was co-designed by award-winning designer, Wolfgang Warsch? Designers Wolfgang Warsch (The Mind, Illusion and The Quacks of Quedlinburg), Alex Hague and Justin Vickers have teamed up on a new game called, Wavelength.
Wavelength is a team based guessing game, whereby, a hidden target is established between two points. One member of the team is trying to get the other players to guess where the target, or bullseye, is located. They do this by drawing a card which presents opposites end of a spectrum, for instance, hot and cold or rough and smooth. A clue is given in attempt to relate the location of the bullseye within that spectrum. Players then discuss how they think that clue relates to the position of the target between those extremes, while the opposing team can “suggest” how they think the clue relates in an effort to make them second guess themselves. The active team then turns a dial (7.5″ rotating wheel) to select a spot on the spectrum. Varying points are awarded based on how close they are to the target.
“One of the really unique things about Wavelength is that it’s played entirely IN THE BOX. The cards, dial, and score tracker all slot into the box’s tray, and you just…pass it around.”
The Kickstarter campaign for Wavelength has a single pledge level of $29 for a copy of the game. The campaign is being run by Alex Hague, who has completed several successful campaigns for the game, Monikers.
