PitchEasy is a creative card game for ideas that uses real products, real key phrases and adult humour.

by Andrew Garden in Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

With a lack of app agencies tailored for startups, we decided to start up our own app agency called Nagne Studio in April 2019.  With multiple clients already under our belt, project kickoffs and workshops is a daily thing for us - we created PitchEasy and use it with our clients to bring up that startup energy. Our clients love it, and here we are.

PitchEasy is a creative card game for ideas that uses real products, real key phrases and adult humour. Perfect for 4 to 10 people with a playing time approx 20 to 60 minutes.

 

We've created 3 PitchEasy editions for you to choose from:

 

Filtered Edition (contains light humour) 

Perfect for professional settings, events and workshops

 

Unfiltered Edition (contains adult humour and innuendos)

Perfect for relaxed social and business settings

 

Filthy Edition (contains adult humour, innuendos and political incorrectness)

Only suitable for social settings - play at your own risk

 

 

How it works

Each round has a FundIt card that sets the pitching criteria for everyone. 

  • The colours indicate the order in which the cards are introduced
  • A normal eye icon means that players are free to look at their cards before pitching
  • A blind icon indicates that the round is a Blind Mode: players are not allowed look at their cards - until they flip them during their pitch
  • A single person icon indicates that all players have to pitch individually for the round
  • A group icon indicates that players need to form teams and divide the cards amongst themselves and bring out a pitch together

 

 Each player/team will be given a product to pitch about

Each players/teams are given phrases to include in their pitch. 

Players/teams need to incorporate their cards into a pitch. it's just like comparing apples for apples - the pitch doesn't need to be perfect.

Here's some examples:

  • Study mode examples (Players allowed to look at their cards)

 

Individual pitch: Study Mode -  (Unfiltered Edition)

 

Group pitch: Study Mode (Filtered Edition)

 

Individual pitch: Study Mode (Filtered Edition)

 

 

  • Blind mode example (Players are not allowed to look at their cards before their pitch)

 

Individual pitch: Blind Mode (Unfiltered Edition)

 

After all players/teams have pitched, they vote for their favourite pitch/product  - giving their blue card to that player/team - don't vote for yourself, it's sad.

 The aim of the game is to win the most FundIt cards, so if you have the most blue cards... you win the game and the bragging rights is all yours.

 

Have a go

 

Why Are We Crowdfunding?

  • We found that PitchEasy is the perfect ice-breaker that isn't cheesy and fun to play.
  • It's great for parties, creative kickoffs and socialising in the workplace.

We started this crowdfunding campaign because we want to create new versions of PitchEasy so the cards can be related to specific things such as apps, travel, dogs etc. With backers and their feedback, we'll be able to affordably produce new versions of PitchEasy. 

 

What We Need

We need amazing souls (backers) to bring down our production costs with our current manufacturer in the UK. We've prototyped, tested it and PitchEasy is ready for backers. 

 

Here's an example of PitchEasy when we first started prototyping with flashcards:

Where will the funds go if the funding target is achieved? All our funds will go to production and fulfilling orders. 

What happens if we don't reach our target? We'll give you back your money.
