How Well Do You Know Your Friends? Social Card Game WHOM, Launching on Kickstarter, Helps You Find Out

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2015

All those postings and photos, but how well can anyone possibly know someone through social media? The engaging social card game WHOM helps answer that. Created by award-winning industry creative Joey Caroni, a team of artists and a ton of late night play sessions, WHOM is a completely new take on card games that pits friends against friends in a game of secrets and big reveals. In WHOM, only the best friends will come out on top.

WHOM has completed pre-production and is now pre-selling the game on Kickstarter.

“WHOM has been in process for a long time and was born from my desire to get to know my friends better,” Joey Caroni said. “WHOM games are always very revealing and result in many funny ‘aha’ moments among friends. At the end of every game, players leave knowing their friends better, and usually being pretty shocked at the results.”

In a high tech world where interactions with friends are largely fleeting and more about, perhaps, what we eat or going to the gym, game nights among friends are seeing a huge resurgence. WHOM is designed to take a typical game night and not only make it incredibly fun but also really insightful. It is the perfect conversation starter and can be played with old and new friends alike. WHOM launched a Kickstarter to meet the minimum quantities needed by their suppliers to ship the card game.

For a $ 25 pledge, Kickstarter backers can get the full game at launch this summer. Each set includes 50 full-color WHOM question cards (4.75 inch x 4.75 inch), a premium magnetic box, card stand and 50-sheet score pad.

WHOM also created some innovative additional rewards for larger pledges, which include the limited WHOM “Selfie Package” where a WHOM artist will draw you directly into a future piece of game art.

Key Features:

Beautifully Illustrated – Original artwork by eight noteworthy and talented artists.
Expansions – Booster decks of 50 additional cards featuring all new art and questions
Bonus Questions – Call out friends in a popular vote to see which one best fits each description
Friend Score – The total number of questions guessed right for a player. Soulmate status or work on that friendship? WHOM shows!
Easy Fun – Hysterical, revealing and downright disturbing fun in four steps.

How to WHOM:

1. Draw a card and read the question and all of the answers out loud.

2. Choose an answer for yourself and make a best guess for each player. Then, write them on the scoresheet.

3. Take turns revealing answers. Each correct answer earns a point!

4. The player with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.

In the future, there are plans for a WHOM mobile game (already in development) and other multimedia products, but getting the physical card game to consumers is WHOM’s priority now.

Diet and Exercise – Find a Program For Life

Time’s article tries to make the case that exercise, because it stimulates the appetite, inhibits weight loss instead of enhancing it. Among Time magazine’s critics regarding the article are Fitness magazine who countered with “10 Reasons Why Exercise Makes You Thin (Or Why Time Magazine Got It Wrong).

While research and commentary like Time magazine’s article, continue to surface, health, fitness and medical expert still agree that the key to weight loss is burning more calories than you consume. Exercise combined with calorie restriction can help give you the weight-loss edge. Along with its numerous other health benefits like boosting your mood, strengthening your hear and reducing your blood pressure, exercise can help burn off the excess calories you can’t cut through diet alone.

Exercise can also be helpful in maintaining weight loss. Studies show that people who maintain their weight loss over the long term get regular physical activity, reports the Mayo Clinic. In contrast, people who lose weight too quickly-by crash diets-are likely to regain weight quickly.

Unfortunately, when it comes to weight loss, the information and diet plans available is limitless. A few of the popular diet plans are Weight Watchers, South Beach Diet and the Flat Belly Diet. In addition, weight loss is a constant topic in women’s magazines, health magazines and fitness magazines.

While magazines can be helpful in keeping up with the latest news, it is important to find a health magazine that promotes a diet plan that fits your needs and lifestyle. Some of the best health magazines include Health magazine, Prevention magazine, Fitness magazine and Consumer Reports/Health magazine.

Your diet plan should include various foods from the major food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, low-fat dairy products, lean protein sources, nuts and seeds. It should include foods you like and that you would enjoy eating for a lifetime – not just for several weeks or months. It should include foods you can easily find in your local grocery store and that you can afford. It should allow you to eat your favorite foods. It should include proper amounts of nutrients and calories to help you lose weight safely and effectively. It should encourage regular physical activity.
