Big Potato teams with Shut Up & Sit Down to launch Don’t Get Got special Kickstarter project

The Shoreditch-based board game and party games publisher, Big Potato has joined forces with the team at the pop culture reviewers Shut Up and Sit Down, to release their own version of the secret-mission party game, Don’t Get Got.

A new Kickstarter campaign for the project launched on Friday, October 16th and will run until November 15th this year, offering backers a series of rewards for pledges. £20 will give backers 140 new missions, each one written by the Shut Up and Sit Down team. A few stretch goals will also pop up along the way.

It all started in November last year, when SU&SD used toy wrestlers to create a video review of Don’t Get Got. Of the collaboration, the Shut Up and Sit Down team, said:

Don’t Get Got was one of the most entertaining and surprising games we played last year, so when Big Potato asked if we’d like to design a new set, I shouted “You betcha!” I’ve never said that before, and I doubt I’ll ever say it again.

‘Also, Big Potato make some of the most inarguably adorable boxes in this business, so they’ll probably make us look more professional just by proximity. Our professional validation is so close I can almost taste it.’

James Vaughan, the brains behind Don’t Get Got, added: “I’ve been following the Shut Up and Sit Down podcast for years now, so I’m pretty excited to say the least. Quinns and the team clearly have the right type of brains for the game – some of the missions they came up with were so sneaky, it made me think, “Damn, why didn’t I think of that?”

Don’t Get Got is a party game that is all about tricking the other players in one way or another. It’s not a sit-down-at-the-table sort of game, but billed as one you play it alongside whatever else you’re doing. So whether you’re at home, on holiday or at a party, you’ll always be looking for sneaky ways to get the other players… before they get you. 

If you fancy grabbing the SU&SD special edition of Don’t Get Got for yourself, then you can back the game here on Kickstarter.
