Based on the international studies on happiness we extracted the most important keys to happiness which are represented by the Keyando cards like e.g. commitment, creativity, faith, family, friendship, love, winning and many more. We all have our own things that contribute to our well-being: a unique set of “keys to happiness”. The reasons for this are simple. We all grow up in different families and environments, within diverse societies, cultures and historical backgrounds. Our unique experiences make us who we are; the situations and dramas we live through are never the same.
Playing Keyando is fun and allows us to find out more about our keys to happiness and what is important to others. It is true both in the game and in real life — if we know our “cards” and how to play them skillfully, we will “win”.
The name KEYANDO consists of the words “key and do”. One meaning of the Japanese word “do” is “way,” as for example in Judo—“the flexible way”. Following this, Keyando is “The Way of Keys.”
HOW IT WORKS
With its simple rules – bullet proofed in more than 300 thrilling test games – Keyando lets us talk about fun and serious things in an entertaining way. The game easily takes on the flavors of our own character, playfulness, and thoughts. At the beginning all players get 5 cards and whoever plays all his cards first wins. The game gets more and more intense with each card you play because the fewer cards you have the more the co-players will probably try to work against you. Angel and vampire cards are jokers which may represent whatever you think of but they may also disrupt any game situation when things get to weird (Yes, that happens sometimes). You can play the cards by telling stories, challenging other players by asking them what ever you want or simply play strictely strategic without revealing too much about you. Whoever refuses a challenge or tells a stories which is not accepted by the majority of the players gets an extra card from the stack. The complete rules will be published when we start a Kickstarter.com.
We will launch a project on kickstarter.com for Keyando on 28th October 2015. There will be different packages on Kickstarter with which you can support or get The Keyando Game Box which ships anywhere in the world. We want to put this project on Kickstarter because it’s the fastest way for us to get the game into your hands and make improvements as a community. We think this game is great, but we need your help making it even better. HELP US BUILD THIS GAME!
