Half Bakery Game

The board game

  [vote for,

Half Bakery Inspired board game.

In a similar vein as “Balderdash” and “Fact or Crap” - a party game where players try to guess if a product or object “exists“ (for certain values of existence):

1) Not at all

2) Only in fiction but not considered possible

3) Described and considered possible or even likely, but not yet in common usage.

4) Widely Known To Exist.

Like similar board games, it would come with a large pack of cards with item descriptions on one side and answers on the back. Descriptions would be humorous (for certain values of humor) and obtuse, so even WKTE items might not be easily recognizable on first read.

The deck would include wild cards to let players throw their own ideas into the mix.

To keep the game fresh (and ensure an ongoing profit stream) game decks could come out new each year, as advancing technology bring “old” half baked ideas into the realm of possibility and new crazy ideas are proposed.

Mouse Trap https://en.wikipedi...i/Mouse_Trap_(game)
Fun for some of the family. Not a contact sport (allegedly). [8th of 7, Dec 23 2019]

       Players are not allowed to use cellphones*. Answers may only be crowd-sourced from the available bodies in the game play room/ clubhouse/ ice hut. No yelling out the window at passers-by.   

       *Or phones of any sort, including taut-string'n'can technology, or technology of any sort, including but not limited to laptops, desktops, GoogleGlass, SmartWatch, StupidWatch, and so on. Optional game gear: body scanner for detection of neural implants.

       Do party participant get to vote, and the result is sorted cards?

       As it pertains to this idea I'm going to guess;
1) Not at all. (+)
  

       // Optional game gear: body scanner for detection of neural implants. //   

       "Aw, Ref ! Unfair ! "

       I think this is a card game, not a board game. Or maybe you just forgot to describe the board and its usage.   

       // Players are not allowed to use […] technology of any sort, including but not limited to [a few computers] //   

       Also including but not limited to houses, tables, paper, printing, playing cards, …

       Nice idea.

       // card game vs board game ... forgot to describe the board or its usage // Point taken. Card game would be cheaper to make, winner simply determined by collecting piles of cards or some tally on paper.   

       Turning it into a board game really just means tokenizing the score system. Maybe each player or team gets a section of the board where they can collect a pile of buns or bones?

       Why not something more like "Mouse Trap" <link> combined with Meccano where players have to construct something ? Maybe representational rather than operable ...   

       "Collect parts and build things with them" - trade things (small plastic models) that clip together like Lego ?   

       "I'll swap these two high-bypass fan jets for your flamethrower and Zeppelin gondola".

       how is a winner determined?

       // Maybe each player or team gets a section of the board where they can collect a pile of buns or bones? //   

       I like that!   

       // trade things (small plastic models) that clip together like Lego ? //   

       I like that too, but it would probably result in an impractically large and expensive game set. Maybe cards for the components instead?

       // an impractically large and expensive game set //   

       <Points at sign reading "HALFBAKERY"/>   

       The game set could include a 3D printer.
