"This Partisans explores nogotiation from several new angles. It's a killer game for the right crowd."Jay Treat, designer of Cahoots and Writhe: A Game of Eldrich Contortions.  

"As a former Hill staffer, I was blown away by the level of detail in the game and how faithfully it represents the legislative process. It also often forces you to take the perspective of a character that does not share your own personal political views, which is increasingly important in today’s divided times. It's also plain fun. A must-play for political junkies and board game lovers!" ~ Paul B.

"It makes for some really fun game play all while explaining why actual politics are so weird!" Jeremy Stolzfus, designer of War of Whispers.

"The Partisans is not only fun to play, it’s a great reminder of what politics is supposed to be all about - ideas. You will have tons of fun and as a bonus, you won't have to worry about people stealing your yard signs." Rachel R. - former candidate for the US House

"This game is guaranteed to be more fun than a Ways and Means committee meeting." Monica Ettinger, Chief of Staff, Ways & Means Delegate Sheila E. Hixson 

"I really enjoyed playing partisans—it was easy to learn, fun, and great even for a group of strangers. Enjoy!" - Charlie Gerstein, Civil Rights lawyer.

"Partisan is a great thought experiment for understanding the pressures and incentives of a republic. It is a cross between Risk, Settlers of Catan, and political science." - Finn Martin, long time gamer and DC resident who-cant-say-where-he-works...

Risks and challenges

We have done lots of games on Kickstarter and have a stellar on-time rate with just one of our games being shipped a few months late - which was due to an egregious printer error.

This product falls on the easier side of production, so we don't expect any issues delivering on-time. That said we are a small team and people get hit by busses, boats sink, and no plan ever survives contact with the enemy - so there is always a small % chance of a delay.
