D&AD New Blood Pencil Winner
The leading game producer Hasbro needed a new game that would tap into the minds of young adults. So we dug into their deepest, darkest-humourish sides. And created the board game Funeral.
Ever wanted to go to your own funeral and hear speeches that would be held in your honour? Now there’s a game for that. But be ready for things you might not want to hear!
Players give eulogies for each other, trying to grab the most from the will. Each round, a new player is declared dead, and the living players must try to give the most touching or choking eulogy to impress their ghostly friend.
