Scruples Press Kit
“Your new boss says there needs to be cutbacks. He asks you to recommend someone to fire. Do you?”
“At your wedding reception, your spouse asks if you had ever been intimate with a flirty guest. You had. Do you tell the truth?”
Scruples — The Game of Moral Dilemmas is now available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Scruples’ objective is to bring people together, and to inspire stimulating conversations and laughter.
Unlike most apps, Scruples is a party game where people get together in the same room to play. Players ask each other what they would do in a moral predicament, and earn points by predicting how their friends will answer (Yes, No, or Depends).
There are no right answers, and bluffing is encouraged.
- Two modes of play:
- Share a device (a device is passed from person to person)
- Multi device (each person uses their own device, connected via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi)
- Ideal for 2 to 5 players
- 250 question from the original inventor
- Universal app
- Available in English and Spanish
Scruples is available as a free app on the App Store. The free app includes 30 questions. Additional questions are available as in-app purchases (US$2.99 for packs of 50 questions, or all questions for US$9.99).
Who’s Behind Scruples
Scruples was released by the Canadian company High Game Enterprises Inc. It was made by an independent female, Mexican born designer/developer. The questions were written and updated by the original inventor.
Scruples was invented in 1984 and went on to sell over seven million in hard copy form. The inventor was writing an article about baby boomer morality and gave a questionnaire to friends. They had some much fun discussing the questions that someone said, “This ought to be a game.”
