Best Pitch Card Game

Best Pitch is a new Card Game from Broken Archer Games.

I have seen the fairly simple Apples to Apples mechanic (for lack of a better term) in many forms.  Cards Against Humanity is the most  well-known there days.  Best Pitch presents this same mechanic in a more family-friendly ad different way.  With a simple concept, a few cards, and the right group, fun for all can be had.

From the back cover: “Pitch your best idea with the most outstanding innovation to a panel of investors…”

Out of the box, there are three sets of cards – yellow Idea Cards, blue Innovation Cards and red Sabotage Cards.  Every player gets 2 of each card.  Each round, a different player is the Tycoon and everyone else is pitching ideas to the Tycoon.  Each player pitches an Idea, with an Innovation to the Tycoon, face down.  Before the Tycoon reads them, each player then plays a Sabotage on a single player’s Idea/Innovation pair.

Game play is simple, very similar to Apples to Apples or CAH.  We had a few laughs when we played but felt like it was missing something.  It’s a great family friendly game, where I think the kids would really enjoy it, but that’s not the crowd I playtested it with.  The relatively random sabotage aspect to the game (not knowing what exactly you are sabotaging) seemed kind of awkward but added as interesting aspect to the game.  At times, the sabotage enhanced the pitch.

From the back cover: “… but watch out as others are looking to sabotage your idea in favor of their own.”

While we enjoyed the game some, I feel the entire group wanted a little something more out of it.  It would be great to play with kids and family.  There is a potential for fun in this game in that environment.  Or at a convention with a mixed group of players.  I feel there is more potential with expansions that play to a specific group – adult, comic geeks, computer gamers, or something like that.  The ideas were somewhat generic and bland,  Combining them with the Enhancements did make them interesting but like I have said, there needed to be more.  I recommend this game for family game night with grade school kids or grandparents.
