If you ever pondered the speed and agility of Frederick Douglass verses the Pizza Prowess of Herman Cain then this is the game for you!!!
The game is a collectable trading card game that highlights the antics of black Republicans. The game has 15 total cards. There are 10 modern Black Republicans and 5 rare signed and numbered limited edition silk screened cards of O.G (Original GOP) Historical Black Republicans. The game showcases their views by pitting each Republican against each other in a race to win a (minor) speaking engagement at The RNC.
This Kickstarter will fund printing of trading cards and packages, game pieces, die, game boxes and posters of the board. It will also fund a portion of the silk screen printing cost.
Forget process tin foil or silly stickers each pack comes with 10 standard trading cards cards and 1 limited edition signed and numbered silk screen card. That's right, hand pulled by me in a sweat shop in NH. Each card (15 total) has a little token (no pun intended) on the back (ok just a little pun) . The tokens are the Republican Jesus: the Fish, a Wingnut: speaks for itself, Establishment GOP: --~cough~ GOP Symbol, Tea Bags er....Tea Party and an Elephant OG's Orignal GOP seen top right corner of the Douglass Card. Fun Facts include biographical details, historical information, some information detailing what offices he or she held, causes they believe in or stupidity they have aspired to. For Instance did you know that Clarence Thomas may or may not watch porn? See Below for more information on Character Tokens.
Each Game Box will contain a complete game set including everything needed for 4 players to get started. The Game is for two to four players ( I guess a lonely person could play by themselves). It is a race to a minor (~not-in-primetime~) speaking engagement at the Republican National Convention. Each Token (again no pun) corresponds to places on the board. For Instance if you are a Wingnut and land on Obama's Birth Certificate you have to go back 3 spaces . The OG's (Original GOP) have little to no contradictions so they are unaffected by the board. Herman Cain is the only card that can win the game automatically by landing on Free Pizza.
On the back of the board is a Black GOP game logo (seen above) . Each pack will also include one special silk-screened, limited edition card of one of the Five OG's: Malcolm X, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, Booker T Washington and Blanche Bruce. Rewards for this project include original art and additional limited addition silkscreen posters of the gameboard, the GOP Pick Poster and complete silk screen sets of all the cards.
With your support I will be able to create a complete and hilarious game that will delight and enjoy anyone with a passing interest in history and politics. Thank you in advance for your support.
Risks and challenges
I have been making silk screen cards sets for a few years. The amount of silk screening is the biggest challenge but I have been a part of projects like that have been successful. The other challenge is the card box, the card printing and packaging. I have done the research and planned the logistics. I have a team already assembled to get that part of the project rolling.
