The Nerd Herd Game will be crowdfunded in the second half of 2018.
The Nerd Herd Game consists of a playing card deck, game pieces, and two game boards (a simple board game for fast, under one hour play and the other that offers a little more challenging).
The design of the game is based on grouping into teams to encourage collaboration and spirited competition. The physical game board, cards, and game pieces heightens game play giving everyone something physical to interact with.
The Nerd Herd Game app gives you the ability to create your own game topics. When a card is selected from the deck, the app brings up the next question to ask (or task the team has to perform) from a game set database.
If the team responds with the correct outcome, they move their game piece forward. The first team to reach D-U-N-N in the center of the game board wins! Because the game set is a database, you can create your own questions and tasks. All without expensive consulting.
The Nerd Herd Game doesn't have to be "all business" either. If you are hosting an extended family birthday bash or planning a high school reunion, turn embarrassing situations and memories into your own game experience.
The Nerd Herd Game app is a single program executable that is configured to a set of features unlocked with an edition code. The game stuff that you touch are available in two different forms. We struggled with identifying each edition using boring corporate sounding names. Since everyone on planet Earth loves coffee*, each edition is given a name associated with coffee.
*That's a fact, Jack!
Our most popular and cost-effective personal edition is called Americano:

The Nerd Herd Game is affordably priced, doesn't require a subscription, and app (and game set) updates are always free. And if you use more than one computer, you can install The Nerd Herd Game app on all of 'em! That ain't all! The Nerd Herd Game is available in four editions, each with different features turned on and packaging. (One of them is even free forever.)
