    Hey Robot is a party game where two teams compete to get their smart speaker to say a specific word. It’s a bit like Codenames or Taboo, if the friend you were playing with had an encyclopedia and was also very, very drunk.”

    Frank Lantz’s colorful design uses Eames Century Modern, not designed by Charles and Ray Eames, but inspired by their work. The Hey Robot packaging appears to be inspired by the Eameses as well — specifically their use of patterns — and also the work of House Industries who published the type family and a bunch of great Eames merch that went with it.

    The Hey Robot Kickstarter runs until Friday, November 22, 2019.
