Colleges Attempt Housing

When the students are away, the admins will play!

It's impossible to prepare yourselves for this hilarious party game for up to 10 of your higher ed colleagues featuring scenarios that only sound outrageous if you've never worked on a college campus!

4-10 Players | Ages 18 & Up | 30 minutes | MSRP TBD

Cards Attempt Colleges is a party game for higher ed professionals. One player is the judge and plays a scenario card. Everyone else plays response cards to please the judge! Will you be funny, clever, or outrageous? That's up to you!

And yes, we're using the font Comic Sans. Did you know...? Comic Sans is one of the world's most legible fonts! Also, we're not taking ourselves seriously at all and hopefully you won't either when playing this game!

We're aiming to create a PG-13 experience, not too raunchy, nasty, and definitely not intentionally offensive. We want a clever, cheeky, inside-joke game that you appreciate because of our design and planning, not in spite of it. We're higher ed pros like you! We don't think our home or workplaces have any room for racism, sexism, harassment, or uncomfortable laughs around the table when you're not sure what to say in response.


625 total cards breaking down into 106 Prompt cards and 519 Response cards.

11/15/19 We have enough cards! Wow, what a whirlwind it has been since the Res Life profession collectively helped us create 625 cards! We are exploring all the production options that change the price drastically. We are discussing multiple release methods including a Print and Play so you can make it at home (no shipping, yay!) or a traditional release with factory printed cards. Look forward for one way or the other soon!

11/11/19 With the launch of this landing page, we are ready to begin creating this game! Get in on it by submitting your ideas for cards. We want to credit all authors and aren't sure yet which way to go (your name on the card, all contributing authors printed on the box back, include cards just printed with all authors names, etc), but we do know we're ready to ask for your help. It's hard to come up with 252 housing related prompts, nouns, and verbs so we'd love for you to join us in the creative process! Think of it: the first game created by the field and for the field!

This is a first...

This has never been done before, an entire profession being invited to create a game of their own! Get in on this before we print so that you can tell your friends around the game table that you were in on it when it all started!
