Well, the inevitable has happened: the company you work for has been acquired by a transnational corporation, and they've decided that your division is redundant. So, your incompetent boss has asked you, as the smartest person in your division, to help make sure your division looks busy and survives.

You're Fired is a quick 2-4 player game where players compete to fire their opponent's boss. By playing various employees, from the Axe Man to the Fall Guy, you can work to make sure that your division makes it through the merger.

There's a little more to it than that, but those are the basics. Check out the unformatted rules, and try out the game today by printing your own 4 page preview edition.

We're also releasing two small expansions to go alongside the game. Add the Interns, Corporate Zombies, or both!

And finally we have two different playmats for those who like to take things to the next level. One comes in Blue/Red and another comes in Orange/Green. You can use one playmat for a two player game and two playmats for 3-4 player games.

How To Play Video

Here's a quick (one-handed!) instructional video showing two turns of gameplay.

Help name our offices!

You're Fired comes with 4 offices (one for each player), but we only have names for two of them. We have names for two of them so far, but we wanted to open this up to our creative backers for ideas! Suggest your favorite names in the comments. As a suggestion, I would keep them around 10-20 characters so that they'll work for our templates. Come up with as many as you've got. 

Risks and challenges

We've done our homework and have as much ready as possible before even launching the Kickstarter, but there are always challenges once it's completed. There may be factory delays or errors, which can cause delays for fulfillment. We've had this issue previously and managed to turn it into a positive thing by providing extra content in the final version of the product.

All of our previous projects have been fulfilled as close as possible to the intended date.
