Couples scrambled to sign up to play The Newly-Dead Game® at the 2017 Frozen Dead Guy Days festival! What’s The Newly-Dead Game?
The Newly-Dead Game was conceived as a way to help start funeral planning conversations in a fun, non-threatening way. The game is based on elements of the classic TV show The Newlywed Game, but the questions in The Newly-Dead Game revolve around how well the couple knows each other’s last wishes.
Four questions are asked, each progressively more challenging, with a value of 5, 10 and 15 points. The emcee then interviews the couples to reveal their answers. The couple that gets the most answers correct get the most points, and the highest-scoring couple wins the top prize!
The game is designed for four couples to play. At least eight couples who wanted to play the three games at 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Saturday and 3:00 p.m. on Sunday hadn’t signed up in time. What great demand!
Thanks to all the couples who participated. Each Newly-Dead Game couple received a bag of BereaveMints and the top-scoring couples also received the 4-DVD set of the TV interview series A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die (a $50 value!).
The Newly-Dead Game first debuted at Frozen Dead Guy Days in 2011. You can get your own digital copy of the game for $24.97. For more information, visit this web page.
