The Game

Out of ConTXT is an amazing new party game that actually allows you to play with your phone while you interact with others. It’s the best of both worlds!

It’s a game similar to some you might have played before, but with our mobile phone twist. At the start of a round a card is drawn and the suggestion is read out loud. All the players must then find the best answer to fit that card. But instead of having to look at the five choices of cards you have in your hand, you scroll through your phone.

You might have to find a text that fits the suggestion. Or possibly a picture that would go with the card. You might even have to look through the music on your phone to find a song title that matches.

Once everyone has found an answer they reveal them and the group decides who had the best response. The winner gets to keep the card and is now earns a point. Once someone reach the agreed upon number of points, they are the winner.

We think you get the idea. It’s a lot of fun and it’s personal! Everything you will be using is something either you put on your phone or someone you know put there. And the same is true of everyone playing the game.

And best of all, since the stuff on your phone is always changing, you always have new material for games. You no longer have to buy new cards for answers and you never have to worry about having a hand full of bad cards.

The Decks

The Starter Deck for Out of ConTXT has 150 suggestions over five categories (explained below). We also have an “After Dark Deck” (more adult themed) and a “Geek Deck” (Comic Con Built!) that have 100 cards each. And there are many more to follow!

One of the great things about the Out of ConTXT cards is that the backs all look the same, but the fronts have a theme to match the deck. This means that you can mix and match the decks anyway you want and the card that comes up will be a surprise. It also means that it is very easy to take cards out when you want (get rid of the After Dark cards for the kids!).

The Categories

There are five categories in Out of ConTXT.

Use any text you find on your phone

Note: You can use any messaging system you might have on your phone in either of the text-based categories. But purists of the game will always say to use actual texts.

This game has been a dream of ours for a while and we’re excited to get it rolling. Look for information on our Kickstarter soon, and keep coming back to see how this site gets better and better!
