Update: Rooster Teeth Captures Over $750,000 For New Board Game in 5 Days on Kickstarter

A Million Dollars, But 3

Less than a week after launching a Kickstarter for its board game Million Dollars, But…, Rooster Teeth has already raised over $750,000 thanks to nearly 17,000 backers.

A Million Dollars, But 2Million Dollars, But… is described as a game that puts the player’s morals and imagination to test by posing the common question, “What would you do with a million dollars?” Each player creates scenarios with a Trigger and Rule card to reveal what he or she would or wouldn’t do for the big sum of ash. All players then debate which scenario is the best.


Set up for the game is fairly simple: each player holds four Trigger and 4 gold Rule cards. They are then to pick a judge to determine which scenario is the best. Once the scenarios are given to the judge, he or she will read them out loud to the group. All players will then attempt to “glorify or downplay” each scenario. The judge then picks the scenario they would not do for a million dollars. First player to have five best scenarios wins.

Rooster Teeth revealed that the game idea was part of the Million Dollars, But show, which was genuinely created overnight. Brian Reilly, Associate Producer for Rooster Teeth Games, was intercepted by Burnie Burns, Rooster Teeth’s Chief Creative Officer about the game and simply stated, “Oh yeah, totally. No brainer!” Within less than 24 hours, next day there was a prototype with about 80 cards. The games team pitched their prototype to the cast and crew of Million Dollars, But… and with that plans were made to launch a crowdfunding campaign.

A Million Dollars, But 1The campaign made headlines just minutes after debut when backers quickly helped the project surpassed its $10,000 initial goal. The Rooster Teeth team shared:

“The office here was in a massive uproar of excitement and joy and disbelief at how fast it actually happened. We want to say more later, but right now – we just wanted to thank each and every one of you for making this possible!”

At this rate, Million Dollars, But… might actually reached the $1 million mark before its June 10th.
