“BEARD! is a nice, light and silly game! Unfortunately, playing it has left me lamenting my lack of facial hair.” -Aerjen Tamminga, Boston Festival of Indie Co-Producer and Games Curator, Game Designer,

“Despite being an awesome, easy to learn party game, BEARD! is a down-right hilarious experience.” – Eloy Lasanta, Game Desinger,

“There are two great things in this world: beards and games. When the two are combined, something magical happens.” – Simeon Cortezano, Reporter,

How To Play

Gameplay is simple.

1. The player with the largest beard chooses who goes first.

2. The first player draws a Save Or Shave card (SOS Card), reads it out loud, and does what it says. Hopefully, it tells you to draw Beard! Cards, but it might tell you to lose Beard! Cards, Steal the Cards of others, roll a six sided die, or choose between multiple options.

3. Play continues clockwise.

4. Each Beard! Card has one letter: B, E, A, R, or D. The first person to have one of each Beard! Card, wins the game.

  4. just picked up a pre order, sorry it did not fund. I am still trying to figure out the kickstarter magic. I have a game coming out later this month called Bigfootses, and i have been closely following about 10 card games trying to see what makes some fund and others not. Let me know if you ever do another game, cant wait to play Beard.
