About

Terms and Scandals is a game involving strategy and luck where you put yourself in the shoes of those famous political icons you have come to love and hate. Immerse yourself in the comedy of American politics. Play the game as a candidate running for office and serve two terms without being sidelined by a scandal. The game is built for 2 to 4 players, ages 10 and up. An expansion deck is a possibility for the future—but we hope to get this current version funded before we can talk about that!

Terms and Scandals pokes fun at the American political process, allowing everyone to enjoy politics without all the heated arguments and fuss of real elections. Start your own scandals and knock out your political foes in the safety and comfort of your home. Avoid all the loud messy fuss of a real political rally by living vicariously in the Terms and Scandals game, laughing and kidding with friends and family around the dining room table. The artwork was designed to keep you entertained and also make you think about the absurd comedy behind American politics.

If you are an AMERICAN... have fun with friends and family during the upcoming election season creating scandals to derail those obnoxious politicians you both love and hate.

If you are a POLITICIAN... give back to your constituents by getting your caricature emblazoned on a Terms and Scandals card so they can use this immortal version of YOU to win their game of Terms of Scandals. Friends, family, and voters will be amazed when they draw your card—yes they will find YOU, embroiled in scandals with Hillary, Bernie, and Donald.

Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform that can make our dream a reality. It allows us to create a project (Terms and Scandals card game) and ask you to contribute money to help fund this startup business. Hopefully, this is the best way to get our idea out to the world and see if people like what we are creating. We’ve invested a lot of time and effort into creating this game, and Kickstarter will allow us to go bigger and better than we could by going straight to retail. We plan to make a digital version of this game to be played by my fellow streamers live on Twitch.tv. This Kickstarter campaign will cover manufacturing costs, help set print runs based on demand, bring stretch goals to light, and more.

We operate a successful live streaming channel on Twitch called App1ecrisp (www.twitch.tv/app1ecrisp). Our experience indicates that Twitch needs more exciting games like Terms and Scandals. What could be better than a fun game you can play during this year’s boring election? Terms and Scandals is that game and Kickstarter is the platform to make it available on Twitch.tv and worldwide. Soon, thousands of online gamers will be streaming our digital version of Terms and Scandals while the real election rages on in the background. Don’t sit around watching cable TV and waiting for REAL scandals. Create your own with Terms and Scandals!

Terms and Scandals is committed to supporting retail partners. We offer wholesale pricing to verified stores and other gaming establishments. We treat you like other backers, but you will receive your rewards BEFORE the normal distribution channels. If you are a verifiable retailer, please contact us through Kickstarter or send an email to alex@termsandscandals.com for more information about how to pledge at this level.

Help build awareness for the game by following us and sharing our posts on Twitter and Facebook.

Risks and challenges

The Terms and Scandals deck is finished and everything is in place to get the game to you in the timeliest fashion known to man. We are working our butts off to make sure the cards you receive are even better than those depicted on the Kickstarter. The box design is still being created and will most likely look like the purple one in the images above. We are also creating the rule book last in case the game logic changes.

The Scandalous deck is in its infancy because we want to see if the project gets funded first, but we do have the card overviews and logic created. We expect the Scandalous deck to be even more awesome than the Terms and Scandals deck since it will be all out chaos with no censorship. If the stretch goal is met we are excited to show you what it contains!
