About

America First Cards is a Hillary-ously fun strategic card game of building, protecting and conquering Empires with sheep. The player who ends the game with the most Empires wins and rules the world! Unless they have the Hillary-ous card. In that case, they are a total loser! 

We are officially running for your support. Only with your help we can bring this project to life and make card games great again! 

In return for your pledge, we are offering you three editions of our game:

  • Black Box (66 cards, 2-4 players, 20 minutes to play, ages 10 and up) 
  • Gold Box (133 cards, 2-8 players, 30-40 minutes to play, ages 10 and up, double the fun)
  • UUUGE Box (Limited Collector’s Edition with 66 UUUGE cards)

For now, the game is available in three languages - English (America First Cards), Russian (Russia First Cards), and Chinese (China First Cards). You’ll be able to pick a language at the end of the campaign in a special survey.

 

 3 PILES

Draw cards from the Draw Pile, play them on the Discard Pile and enter the Bank Pile to buy Gold cards.

COINS 

Play a Coin card to access the Bank Pile and take out a matching Gold card.

EMPIRES

Pairing a Gold card with a matching Lady first card forms an Empire, which you put on the table in front of you. The aim of the game is to build as many Empires as possible.

YOU'RE FIRED!

With a matching You’re fired! card you can challenge an Empire to a sheep fight. Simply play it on the Discard Pile.

SHEEP

Sheep can save your ass when your Empire is under attack. Make sure to collect them enough to beat your opponent. 

 

Make the life of your opponent a bit more complicated. ATTACK, UNFAIR TRADE, SKIP, STOP, PEEK, and KISS THE BOTTOM are your true friends. Use them wisely.  

 

UUUGE MOVE 

  • Choose a player to swap all their cards with you.

HILLARY-OUS

  • If you end the game with the Hillary-ous card in your hand you automatically lose and you’re left with all the honor a total loser deserves. You’d better go check your emails.

RESURRECT

  • Secretly take 2 cards from the discard pile.

 

After seeing the world’s reaction to that famous 'America First' inauguration speech, we realized that humanity needs a new card game. A card game that lets you attack people, peek at their cards, make unfair trades, force your enemies to be nice to you and even fire your own family and friends. Beautiful. 

Ok, let’s confess. We tested the first few versions of the game on our friends and close family. But then we had to fire them because they told us they're not having fun. After changing some friends and different forms of corruption, we found the game engine that just feels right. We love it. And here it is!

Risks and challenges

We hope people will not hold the fact, that preorders are not possible, against us.
None of us want this to be a campaign where you spend the next two years getting lots of emails about production updates and delays. Luckily, it's a simple card game.
America First Cards have been extensively playtested and are super fun! All of the art assets are done and we’re going to Kickstarter to cover the printing costs.
We have taken on all the project risks by investing the time and money needed for America First Cards's illustrations, app possibilities, and development.
Manufacturing is secured. Shipping and logistics are nailed. All that's left is doing the initial print run of the game.
