About

We are now http://kickingitforward.org ! As we are firm believers that those who are helped should help others as well!

Alternative Facts are not just for the professionals anymore!

Other match type board games use a mix of nonsensical phrases. In Alternative Facts every card is a fact and it is up to you to match them to create a funny alternative fact.

The game is fun and easy. Each round someone asks a question from the "Facts" pile and everybody else answers with a card from the "Alternative" pile. The questioner chooses what they think is the funniest (or best) answer.

For those of you curious, no need to go to the search engine. Each card will have the corresponding fact at the bottom of the card, but don't let the truth dictate your fun!

Introducing the Board for an Alternative way to play!

Alternative Facts Game Board
Alternative Facts Game Board

The Rules for the board are simple! The game is played the same as without the board except at the end of each round you will move the game peg towards the time machine. The person with the least points will have a chance at changing history by writing an "alternative fact" on a blank card. That person will also write a "fact" (but they won't tell anyone what that "fact" is). Everyone will try to write a "fact" to go with the "alternative fact". The person with the least points will choose just like in the regular game but with this twist! If someone wrote a fact that matches the fact that the chooser wrote  (doesn't have to be perfect just needs to be the gist of it!) than the chooser gets 5 points and no one else gets points that round.

 KickStarter edition:

Those of you who pledged $5 or more will have access to the kickstarter version of the game that will include ALL the cards and those who pledged $25 or more will receive the Box Set (as well as the online access) of ALL the cards. Downloadable content will be made available once the goal is met but those who joined us on kickstarter will always have ALL the cards available in the kickstarter members section.

Once the game goes into production and the website is opened to the public only the play tested cards will remain on the nonmember portion of the website and be offered in the box set.

Risks and challenges

There are always risks in life. The most common one I hear is "I might get hit by a bus on my way to work". That aside this game will be finished. After doing my homework $5,000 is the dollar amount needed is so I can get original digital art for the board, a website to download the content, and have good material for the board and cards.
