Cons Against our Sanity is a highly addictive and hilarious convention based card game similar to Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity.
Cons Against our Sanity’s Inception started when Laurie Colin was at her 37th convention this year. She looked on at the same crazy shenanigans that occur with her long dead eyes and thought to herself, “Screw it, I’m going to make a card game based off of this nonsense.” And so she did.
She approached Izzy Aly, owner of the startup company Kronotiq Media LLC, and after they cackled manically over a bottle of bubbly, he agreed to help her produce her sick, twisted, cards. THUSLY CONS AGAINST OUR SANITY WAS BORN! It has been designed, printed, and playtested with overwhelmingly positive reviews.
This game combines almost a decade of convention attending experience with dark humor, satire, and creativity. We set up this kickstarter because we know we can deliver an amazing product to more people with proper funding. With your help, you can make this game a reality. If you like to have fun, you enjoy conventions, or want to remember what it was like to laugh again, please help make this game possible. We think you’ll absolutely love it.

Thanks a lot for your interest in Cons Against Our Sanity! Allow me to explain our motivation for organizing this card game and funding it.
For years, we’ve witnessed the cosplay economy growing rapidly with every major convention in Florida and around the US. More people are jumping in and putting their work out there, for reasons ranging from excellent craftsmanship and recognition, to just pure fun and entertainment with friends!
But we’ve also noticed a lot of mainstream neglect involved, as there doesn’t seem to be any proper coverage for the cosplay scene. Also absent are corporate sponsorships (beyond convention sponsors) – at most, a few TV shows have been made, but that’s about it.
Enter Kronotiq Media. Our goal for this project, as well as a majority of our future endeavors, is to standardize and supply this underappreciated culture with several entertainment products. These products range from customized card games, to actual board games, to video games and other merchandise – all quality products for niche audiences. We strive to deliver a unique, tailored set of affordable products that cater to con-goers and cosplayer's preferences and tastes alike.
This is only the beginning, friends. Please look forward to even more ideas and expansions from us!
Risks and challenges
The first step before this whole thing started was contacting Ad Magic, and getting the green light to safely start without any issues with our plans and designs. (More details in the FAQ)
Earlier, before we even began, the biggest challenge involved with Cons Against Our Sanity came with how a single girl could manage to get the idea, garner enough trust to get it sponsored, and produced by a small local company in Orlando. We would love to mass produce this game and see it in stores, including our own con outlets across the country. We know we'll stumble around one day at a convention at 2 am completely drunk and see circles of people howling over this game.
Kronotiq Media is a new, self-funded startup company based in Orlando that would really love to get off the ground and make multiple projects like Cons Against Our Sanity.
Making a card game like ours is actually not too difficult - we've researched the design and printing processes involved, and we can guarantee your satisfaction at successful funding and execution of this project. The game itself has already been finished and tested, and this kickstarter will help us provide this product to it's supportive fans.
No delays. No pushbacks. It's plain and simple - you help fund our project, and we'll straight up deliver you your deck right to your location.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
