Praise for Lost in the Shuffle

What is it?

An epic, humorous, and fiendishly clever at-home puzzle game all jam-packed into a custom deck of playing cards.

I cannot stress enough that there is nothing nefarious going on with this game. I don't even know why I'm telling you that. You know what? Forget I mentioned it. 

Boost your brain powers on your quest to become officially, legally, a genius!* Submit all 52 correct answers to access the final challenge, “Puzzle 53” (dun dun duhhhhhn!).

Right now you're thinking, "That box looks like he  wrote on it with a sharpie." But it's, like, more complicated than that.

Playtime: 3-5 hours

Play solo or team up with some friends.

Puzzles range in difficulty. Start easy and work your way up to puzzle professional.

Online features require an internet connected device

In addition to the deck of cards, the game employs some feature-filled online accompaniment: Score brain matter for correct answers. Collect enough brain matter to level up your brain and unlock helpful info and features.

 

Plus there's an extensive, progressive hint system.

More interesting tid-bits:

  • Approachable for novice solvers and builds up to greater challenges.

  • Some puzzles require multiple cards, some cards contain multiple puzzles!

  • Fully "re-giftable." No marking or damaging components required.

Audio Escape Game

The lovely hosts of Escape this Podcast were kind enough to let me serve as Guest Game Master for an episode! They always post their game scripts and resources online so anyone can run the games for their friends. It's a real classy move and I wanted to follow suit:

 

This is a link to a Google Drive folder with my game's script along with some requisite images and audio files.

 

And this is a link to the podcast episode so you can hear how it all comes together :)

If you do run the game for somebody please let me know how it goes!!!
