FAQ

What's with the name?
Although we appreciate that choosing the name "TRIGGERS" may be provocative to some, we also feel it sets the appropriate tone for the game. Some people use the term lightly or antagonistically, others use it to express sincere emotional distress. We cast no judgements, we simply want the game to evoke conversation and mutual understanding, while also using the name "TRIGGERS" to serve as a warning to those who may not be interested in discussing controversial topics.

Does the world really need another party game?

This isn't another "Match two cards for the funniest punch line game", Triggers is a completely new experience all about stimulating conversation.

Who made this game?
We're a group of Canadians who love to talk about controversial topics until the whee hours of the morning. We created this game because it was the game we wanted to play and it didn't exist yet. Our team is made up of people from various walks of life with different backgrounds, creeds, colors, religious and political leanings.

Does TRIGGERS have a political agenda?

No. We did our best to keep the game as neutral as possible and keep our opinions out of it. That's why we recruited people from all walks of life to develop the questions. We believe that people who subscribe to different political ideologies have a lot more in common than they may realize and that friendly discussion may help to bridge some gaps between people. And if not, it's still a really fun game.

Is this game for everyone?

TRIGGERS is intended for all people who are 14+ and enjoy conversation around controversial topics. If you do not enjoy conversation on sensitive topics, this game is probably not for you.

What's the ideal number of players?

The main game supports 3-10 players, but we also have a 2 player variant coming soon. From our play testing the sweet spot seems to be 5-7 players.

What's in the box?

The game comes with 200 TRIGGERS questions, 50 privilege cards, 20 answer cards (to support up to 10 players), and an instruction insert.

Have any couples broken up over arguments started by this game?

They weren't right for each other anyways...

I have ideas for new questions / improvement of existing questions.

That's not a question, but we'd love to hear from you. Send us an email at triggersthegame@gmail.com
