Duffel Blog is going offline and into your barracks room, with the introduction of its first-ever card game: WTF, Over?
Duffel Blog consistently offers a hilariously funny satirical take on national security from a team of more than 100 military veteran writers. The site has been called “pitch-perfect” by Wired, while CBS News hailed it as offering some of the “best military satire since Joseph Heller wrote Catch-22.”
So, do you wanna play a game? Because we have one that you're gonna love.
The concept of WTF, Over? is simple: It's a 220-card party game using Duffel Blog content in the style of Cards Against Humanity.
Many of your favorite articles and headlines have been made into the most irreverent party game on earth, and we've adjusted the content so it's accessible to both veterans and civilians alike.
But we can't do this one all by ourselves. We need your help, and more specifically, the help of your credit card, to get us to our fundraising goal of $15,000.
That's basically like 30 cents spread across everyone who works at the Pentagon. So if you happen to work near his office, please tell Secretary Mattis we could use the hookup.
Anyway... with that amount we can create stand-alone 220 card decks with full-color content and two-piece heavy duty boxes. Due to the size, the minimum print order of 500 units will cost approximately $10,000.
The additional funds will be used to cover Kickstarter’s mandatory 5% fee, the warehouse shipping and fulfillment costs after the campaign, and alcohol. Lots of alcohol.
Risks and challenges
The biggest risk with a game right now is that we're entering a market flooded with great, fun ideas, and Duffel Blog has never tried anything like this before. That's why we've partnered with War Games LLC. Their team has already successfully created two card games (FUBAR and Blue Falcon) so they have plenty of experience bringing games from concept all the way to backer delivery.
Paul Szoldra, the founder of Duffel Blog, brings an established fan-base of thousands with him to this project. Combined with the War Games/FUBAR group, we believe the audience for this product is already substantial, and will only grow during the Kickstarter campaign.
So there is a risk with any kind of card game, and we know that. But fortunately, we're working with people who have done it before. And they are all set and ready to start making WTF, Over? That is, as long as we can get the cash.
Whether you kick in $5 or $100, from the bottom of our dark, twisted, and horrible sense-of-humor hearts, we thank you so much for your support.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
