THE QUARANTINI GAME
"It's as if Jeopardy!™ and Articulate™ had a baby with a Smart Speaker during the Covid Quarantine!"
Please view on laptop to play
The Quarantini Game.
SMART SPEAKER. DUMB ANSWER.
To play simply get your Smart Speaker to say what's on your card.
If you've ever played Articulate™ you'll know you need to get your team mates to utter the word on your card without you saying that word; and if you've ever watched Jeopardy!™ you'll know it's not about the answer its about the question. The Quarantini Game™ combines the best of both these games and throws in a Smart Speaker for hilarous outcomes.
"All the elements of the Covid pandemic in one hilarious game"
2020 has been a year like no other. We Quarantined, we Zoomed, We Quizzed, we Drank and we spoke to our Smart Speakers in volumes never seen before.
We've taken all these elements and distilled them into an fun, easy to play game for when we can't get together in person. All you need is a friend, a laptop, a video meeting plus a Smart Speaker (or mobile voice assistant).

Drinks despite being disconnected
SHOWCASE YOUR KNOWLEDGE
Know not only the best question, but the best way to phrases it.
Expect bizarre, brilliant and bulls*t answers with hilarious results.
HOW DO I PLAY REVEALI EDITION?
1. Teams reveal all cards by clicking the reveal buttons.
2. Each team takes turns to ask their Smart Speaker a question in an effort to make it say the word/phrase on the card. (Players cannot use the words on the card in their question).
3. If your team suceeds then turn over that card.
If not then take a stiff Quarantini drink!
4. You can immediately retry your question up to 5 times in total per game. However, opponents can Retry on your failed attempt too so be fast. Use the Retries strategically on your turns and opponents.
5. The winner is the first team to have the Smart Speaker say all their words and turn over all their cards.
ISN'T THIS TOO EASY?
It's Simple. Yes! Easy no! Simple to understand the rules but actually hard to get the Smart Speaker to comprehend. It's more like playing with a drunk robot. Smart Speakers are not that smart yet. Despite the hundreds of hours of engineering effort they still have a way to go to be "human smart". Right now they are in their infancy but getting smarter everyday. Depending on how you phrase your question, your cadence and your pronunciation can all lead to hilarious responses. Enjoy!
HOW DO I USE "RETRY"?
You have 5 per game so you need to use them strategically. If your first question does not get a correct response you can "Retry". You can also use a retry to attempt to answer another team's failed question. In effect you can "steal a point" if you use your Retry wisely!
HOW OFTEN ARE THERE UPDATES TO THE GAME?
We love to get your suggestions and ideas and commit to updates at least once a quarter - so 4 times a year. So, feel free to make your suggestions as some may make it through to the next release.
WHAT'S THE OBJECTIVE OF THE GAME?
The objective is to get your smart speaker (Google/Siri/Alexa) to say the words on your cards. When you get it wrong take a drink!
Oh and I guess the other goal is to connect with friends, have some fun and quarantini drinks.
HOW DO I PLAY DRINKI EDITION?
1. Select a category card to reveal a random word.
2. Each team takes turns to get their Smart Speaker to say the word on the card by asking it a question.
(Players cannot use the words on the card in their question).
3. If your team suceeds then hit the "Correct" button below. If you get it wrong then take a Stiff Quarantini Drink!!
but also hit the "Fail" button to turn the card over.
4. You can immediately use your Retry if you fail - up to 5 times total per game. However, a competing team can also use their Retry on your failed question, providing they say it before you do!
(So use these Retries rapidly before opponents and strategically when you think rephrasing will help the Smart Speaker understand. )
5. The winner is the first team to 10 points.
