Washington, D.C. August 21, 217 – Sometimes the quickest way to divide a room full of family and friends is to suggest a game of trivia. Washington Redskins punter and former University of Oklahoma standout, Tress Way, found a way to unite both sides – those who love trivia and those who hate trivia – through an idea developed during NFL training camp. Way challenged teammates and coaches to measure their knowledge of everyday trivia, basing all answers on statistics. Their enthusiastic response served as the proving ground for the game’s ultimate version: team trivia for everyone – teammates, family, and friends. Designed and produced by Way Fun Games, “What’s Your Bid” combines classic game features such as bidding, varied trivia categories and team play. In an effort to share the game with everyone, Way Fun Games launched a Kickstarter funding campaign July 31. The project reached full funding in a remarkable two-week period, guaranteeing holiday game delivery for all current and prospective backers.
Joined by three friends from Oklahoma, Way led the game’s year-long development process, including design, production and test marketing of multiple prototypes to reach the final version offered to its Kickstarter contributors. Getting production off the ground first required research and vetting of over 500 trivia questions spread across five trivia categories. Based on strategy rather than extensive knowledge of trivia, the game’s overwhelmingly positive customer response propelled Way Fun Games toward the current version. “We are thrilled with our initial Kickstarter response,” says Way. “People who love trivia, and even those who don’t, love ‘What’s Your Bid.’” Kickstarter provides a unique opportunity for creative projects like “What’s Your Bid” to come to life when backed by community.
