That's Not Lemonade! Live on Kickstarter

That's right! The game we've been working on this past year is finally out! It's fast, it's friendly, it's...bursting with fun! It's called That's Not Lemonade! and it's easily our favorite press-your-luck game. Check it out on Kickstarter now!

Designed by the incredible Matt Fantastic with beautiful art by Kelsey Cretcher, That's Not Lemonade! is a great addition to your table. It's fast, light, and fun and we really think you'll enjoy it. The first time we ever played - we started at midnight and didn't leave the table until six in the morning. That's a lot of playing for a 10 minute game!


In this super easy to learn press-your-luck game, there’s only one question you have to ask yourself: to drink or not to drink? Drink the most lemonade and you win... but watch out! Some people have seen Little Johnny, the neighborhood rascal, sneakin’ about, and you might end up drinking something... That's Not Lemonade!

  • Open Table Game: Join late, leave early, the game still works! 
  • Easy to Learn, Fast to Play: Takes one turn to learn and only ten minutes to play! 
  • Maximum Tension, Minimum Rules: Press-your-luck distilled down to its purest form. A card counter’s delight!


The goal of That's Not Lemonade! is to be the first player to earn three lemons. You earn a lemon by collecting the most lemonade cards in a round, but watch out! Some of the cards are That's Not Lemonade cards and if you draw one, you're out for the round. 

Overall, the gameplay is simple. All you have to do is decide whether to hit or pass. To keep it simple, there's only four kinds of cards:

  • Lemonade Cards: You want these. Collect the most of these and win your round.
  • DOUBLE Lemonade Cards: You want these even more. They're worth two lemonades (duh).
  • Ice Cards: These are junk cards that help break ties, they don't do much for you, but they're way better than...
  • That's Not Lemonade! Cards: Draw one of these cards and you're out for the round!

Sounds simple, right? Well, it is simple! But don't be fooled, this game is tough! Whoever gets the most Lemonade in the round gets to keep a lemonade card (putting them one closer to winning). This means there are even fewer lemonade cards in the deck, and you're now more likely to draw a That's Not Lemonade! card. The odds have changed! Trying to keep all the cards straight in your head keeps the game challenging, while the overall rules of the game are so easy, a four year old can play (trust us, we have nieces and nephews)!
