I honestly don't know if anyone is going to take a peek at this, but I'll take my chances. Search Party is a light yet fast paced party/word game where you try to find words on a word search style puzzle, but don't get caught holding the grid or you'll lose the round.

Be the first to collect five puzzles and you win!

You can download the PnP here:

Look forward to hearing your thoughts and comments about the game.

About the PNP

You know you can use Google's FREE G-Drive for up to 10 GBytes of space??? I'm just saying because other services charge you or give you a minimum of space and require you to upgrade to PAID services.

One of the MOST ANNOYING services is "Dropbox". See they don't care IF you SHARE information between multiple accounts... It ALL counts towards YOUR OWN space.

So if you have like 100 Mb of shared content and someone shares 1 Gb of a folder... Guess what??? You have to upgrade to PAID subscription in order to be able to ADD ANY FILES ... ANYWHERE!!!

Sorry a bit of a rant... G-Drive is the best for FILE SHARING. FYI.

I love the idea of a word

I love the idea of a word search team game! Have you had it played in person?

Some comments from reading the rules and some cards:

I wouldn't want to be the host. It is a lot to ask the person in the group probably the most invested in this game to not play. As a game master for table top RPGs, it is a lot of responsibility, and sometimes I miss playing. It is needed in RPGs due to all the plot and naritive structure and judgement calls. Having a GM also enables your players to be able to play without the mass of rules.

One way to get around this is the more typical structure in party games where the the opposing team moderates your team with the timer and the wordlist. I would trust the players in a party game to not cheat when moderating.

Sorry it took me so long to

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. Glad to hear you like the concept! We had the first playtest scheduled for a few weekends back, but it got cancelled. We're hoping to get it rescheduled soon.

Your mileage may vary in this situation, but from my experience,
you have that one person at a game night that doesn't want to play, but still wants to be a part of the action. More likely then not, they'll take on the host responsibilities. Of course, players could take turns playing host after every game.

P.S. I'm still looking for playtesters if you're interested. So download the PnP from the first post of this thread and have at it!
