After months of secrecy, the Dumpster Fire Party! game by 100% Soft burns across the country and into your screens. This storytelling party game whimsically gets players to divulge their comically terrible stories from their won trash fire lives – all for good fun.
The base game supports 3-6 players, as well as possible expansions during the Kickstarter Campaign to add additional players. The game features a dumpster with magnetic flame nearly twice the size of the vinyl toys and 24 magnetic trash charms. During the campaign, there will be 2 exclusive colorways of the vinyl toy, Kickstarter Colors and a Metallic Green, and 3 colorways of the game – Standard, Smog Black, and Magical Trash. The Magical Trash colorway of the game and the Metallic Green toy are only available during the first 7 days of the campaign. The campaign will end on May 20, 2022.
“Seeing the overwhelmingly positive response to the Dumpster Fire vinyl toy, it really struck me that this had hit a cultural nerve. I wanted to find a way to make this cute little Dumpster Fire into a communal experience because everyone seemed to relate to it. I’ve always wanted to make a game but I needed some talented maniacs to help me, so I reached out to Forever Stoked Creative, (TEAM3, The X-Files: Conspiracy Theory) and Blaise Sewell (POOP: The Game, Blocko Taco), and together we made it happen!”
“We can all personally relate to the adorable dumpster fire, so we wanted to make a game that celebrates and commiserates our shared suffering. In the game we’re all telling actual real life stories of our own, and recognizing that we’re all sort of disasters sometimes is not only a hilarious experience, but also pretty life affirming that everyone deals with the same general tragicomedy of being human,” says Matt Fantastic of Forever Stoked Creative.
When I previewed this game at PAX U 2021, I adored the simplicity and ease to freely share some completely bonkers stories. Since I was playing with a bunch of press and Forever Stoked Creative representatives, we let loose and had a fun time with the game. It’s wonderful to see the change from prototype to full-fledged concept. I look forward to seeing the success of this Kickstarter and all the crazy shenanigans that are to come from the game. Plus, who doesn’t love a cute-looking dumpster fire? (And I’m not talking about me.)
