Do you know that card game Old Maid?
The objective of the game is to collect all your pairs and not get stuck with the Old Maid. It is easy enough for a preschooler, fun enough for people at a bar, but also totally family-friendly. In retrospect-- however-- it is totally sexist, ageist, and, well... in our opinion made incorrectly!
So we fixed it.
In the correct version, the Old Maid is a babe-- an unmarried, older woman with a crotch-rocket and a helmet that looks like a black cat. The card you do not want, is, however, the Douchebag CEO. The Douchebag CEO is a mean miserable person who does not care for others and thoroughly enjoys inciting conflicts that benefit him or boost his ego, instead of using his power to heal or help people.
The Douchebag's heart rots inside his chest as he robs his lowest-paid workers, who are often putting in overtime to feed their families, while he works only a few hours a week. He spends most of his time taking vacations and dining at $400-a-plate restaurants without a care for other humans. He puts in as little work as humanly possible, robbing others of their time-- staying filthy and disgustingly rich— at the expense of basically the entire planet.
Of course, the Old Maid is a hot cougar who does what she wants and lives her best life!
Don't be the Douchebag!
The game consists of 52 cards. It's straightforward and easy to play, a game for having conversations and socializing with-- and you can even come up with your own variations of rules!
Buy Douchebag CEO as a gift for all your friends & family! It's a novelty!

Risks and challenges
A possible challenge - ensuring backers get exactly what they paid for in a timely manner. December is listed as a projected shipping date, but it could change. If struggling to ship orders, DM will hire 1-2 people to do the shipping.
By the time the Kickstarter backers get their cards, if it seems to be gaining an interesting following, I will begin locking down a distributor for future publications.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
