About

Electability is an exciting card game that will be a great way to commemorate the insanity surrounding the current political climate.

Set in the 2016 presidential election cycle, you are a candidate in the race for the highest office of the United States of America. To win the election and become the leader of the free world, you will need to dodge scandals, win debates, and pick up as many states and their corresponding electoral votes as possible!

As candidates begin to gain electoral votes, the game heats up quickly. You will find your heart racing as you use your best strategery to best the other candidates.

What if I don't like politics? 

You do NOT have to like politics to play Electability. In fact most of our play testers were intimidated by the game’s political theme, but then found they loved it and actually left understanding a bit more about how the process works.

What if I don't like Trump or Clinton?  

We know not everyone is into Trump or Clinton. A lot of people don't even want to vote for Gary Johnson. If you fall into this category, don't worry! We have added all of your favorite candidates from the Primary Election. But wait, there’s more! We also added some alternate candidates who you might only dream would ever run for President. Candidates like Stephen Colbert, Ellen Degeneres, Will Smith and Steph Curry!  

How do I play the game?  

Electability is a turn-based game where you play as a presidential candidate on your race to the White House. You draw cards and strategically choose when to play them to your advantage. Your goal is to lock in 270 or more electoral votes, but it won't be easy. Along the way your opponents will try to block you!  

They will play scandal cards to embarrass you and force you to lose votes! They will demand a recount and get your votes thrown out.

If recount is played, they may fish an unplayed card out of your hand. But don't worry; if you have a campaign manager card in your hand it can protect you! 

There are also strategy cards that you can use like grass roots and rock the vote to give you a competitive edge. 

What makes this game worth playing? 

The game gets competitive very quickly and as the race to become the president gets close to 270 votes, it gets very, very exciting!

Join in on the fun and back our game today! 

More stretch goals will be added once we fund! Electability Rubik's cubes for everyone, two colored boxes, higher quality game components and more! So make sure you share with everyone you know. Thanks for your support!

Risks and challenges

The game has been fully designed and the artwork is ready for prime time. We have play-tested it many times. How many times? Well if you took all of Clinton's deleted emails and added in the number of times Trump has said he will build a wall, it would be somewhere in that ballpark.
The creative genius behind our artwork, Sergey Grigoryan of TNKR Design, has done an excellent job designing our cards. He also collaborated on the artwork for Spaceteam so this isn't his first Kickstarter project. His help and knowledge has been instrumental to our success.
What about fulfillment? We have done our homework on this one too. We are using AdMagic/Breaking Games, the same printers who printed some of our favorite games like Cards Against Humanity, Exploding Kittens and Secret Hitler.
