Real Tweets... it's their words, not ours
Trumped Tweets is a politically themed party game in which players compete using real tweets from real politicians/celebrities to answer ridiculous questions.
Below are the contents of the game! We wanted to make sure we would hit our funding goal and have opportunities for huge stretch goals! By sharing the game and hitting stretch goals, you can expect at least 285 possible more cards for free (in perspective tiers). Whenever we hit a stretch goal, we will update the contents section!
My name is Andersen Pinckney. I developed Trumped Tweets on my own until this Summer. I am extremely grateful to have two of my friends joining my on this adventure; Emmett Friedrichs and Colin Kuhn, also students at Champlain College.
I thought the game wouldn't work, but after a sleepless night, I produced a prototype that would change the rest of my semester. The game was an instant hit! I knew this would be the first of my party games to reach Kickstarter.
I spent several months designing and fine-tuning the game; adding new politicians to the mix, changing card designs, and testing. I attended Champlain's industry quality QA lab for almost every week since the game was playable. Hundreds of players have tried the game, and the great majority absolutely love it.
While working on the game, I also competed in several competitions. My most proud victory was winning 1st place in Champlain's elevator pitch competition sponsored by Heritage Ford.
Interested in getting more than one copy of the game? Sounds like add-ons might help you out. We do our add-ons through Backerkit after the project is successfully funded. Simply add the balance to your pledge and we will send you a survey to complete after the project is funded. Add-ons include the price of shipping for US only.
For example, if I bought the x1 Custom Deck tier ($70) and I wanted to gift the game and the first expansion to a friend, I would increase my pledge to $115 ($70 + $30 + $15).
About Custom Decks
Social media is about being involved. Since our game revolves around social media, it makes sense to have our community involved in our development process. We are giving backers the opportunity to select twitter users they want in the game.
When it comes to choosing the next expansions, we want to let the community decide. Who do you follow on Twitter? If you back the tier to create your own deck, you can choose a Twitter user to be the star in one of our 10 Kickstarter decks! Of course, we won't simply copy and paste tweets. We plan to go through similar QA testing as we have done with the standard game.
For backers that just want to choose a few decks, we are guaranteeing 10 custom decks to select from. We won't disclose all of our options quite yet, but some of our celebrities include; Joe Biden, Jaden Smith, and even some of The Kardashians. Expect more leaks during the campaign as we confer with our backers to select more celebrities!
How to help more?
In addition to your support, one of the best ways to help our project grow is by sharing the game with your friends. I'm sure you have noticed above, our stretch goals come quick as we want to pack the most awesomeness into our game as possible!

Risks and challenges
After thorough investigation, we have concluded there is only a 0.000000001% chance that our politicians and celebrities will stop tweeting.
However unlikely this may happen, we have still gone the extra mile (that's roughly 1.6 kilometers for the rest of the world) and captured a celebrity. We are holding semi-famous YouTuber, Slimecicle hostage. In exchange for food, adequate pay, and regular connection to the outside world, he has provided his video making skills to this project.

Now you know, our bases are covered. The game has been tested and reworked thoroughly to meet and exceed the standards of our supporters. Some of you may have noticed this is actually our second Kickstarter. We had canceled the first effort in the first few days knowing that we could do better. Now that several additional months have gone into development, we know you are receiving the best of our efforts.
Thank you for your support! We are excited for you to receive our game.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
