DisgRACE TO THE WHITE HOUSE

Let's face it, we're in a poop storm. Every day there is something coming out of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. (or, more frequently Mar-a-Lago) that is embarrassing to the nation and dangerous to the world. If this were a fiction story, no one would ever believe it. One cannot make this stuff up. So, we made up a board game that almost writes itself. 

DisgRACE to The White House is a fast-paced, satirical board game for people with an IQ over 50 across the globe. In between protesting, marching, and crying into your pillow, let's all laugh a little bit, too.  DisgRACE to The White House offers catharsis during these trying, fact-free, tiny-hands times. Players brush up on the Electoral College— the envy of authoritarian fascists worldwide--as well as DJT's certifiably insane Tweets, as they navigate the election and steal electoral votes (we learned from the best) in a race back to The White House.

Help us raise $13,000! Own a printable DisgRACE to The White House board game.  Fun and crafty! Every dollar above that gets us closer to a hot off press DisgRACE to The White House limited edition board game. A perfect gift and future collectible.

How To Play disgRACE to the White House 

Laugh don’t cry as you race to beat Donald Trump to the White House! Because even your least favorite friend is better than what we’ve got now.

This roll and play game mixes impersonations, pop culture knowledge, real tweets, and international intrigue, with laughs and luck. Players collect Chinese Yuan to buy electoral votes as they navigate the Golden Shower Slide, the 400 Pound Hacker, and Pussies Grab Back squares, all while trying to avoid The Wall. Brush up on the Electoral College, call in a favor with Putin to get out of trouble, or strategize with other players to steal votes from the player in the lead. Game play mixes skill and luck but It always comes down to the last few rolls in this fast-paced game. Constant player interaction combines aspects of charades, trivia, and other classic board games into a unique challenge that is perfect for these fact-free, tiny hands times.

The game is designed for 2-6 players and takes about 60 minutes to play.

 OUR STRETCH GOAL: 

$13,000 jumpstarts this project BUT, in order to get this BAD BOY INTO STORES AND ON THE SHELVES it's going to cost us $55,000 minimum to print our first 3000 games.  We need this game in stores across the country so that You Know Who is humiliated and our Resist through Laughter movement takes off!

If we reach $55,000 or more (more is always better) everyone from a $75 level or higher receives our first edition board game (with their name on the box) and a surprise gift from Obama. Just kidding. But wouldn't that be cool?

Risks and challenges

Let's face it. We're going to get sued. Our attorneys said we'll be OK because it's a game. But it's going to cost us. In addition to defending ourselves, we want to get the word out. To the world. We’ll have some marketing expenses. Our advisers are PR and advertising professionals, so that will help. But there will be hard costs to get the masses eyeballs on this.

We’d love to get our staff paid a little somethin’ somethin’ at some point. It’s a labor of love, but there’s only so much ramen one can eat.

Another thing. We want to have a zillion backers. So we need you to not just laugh, but SHARE. We need $13,000 to get the simplest version out to everyone. But we have bigger dreams.

Finally, the more we raise, the faster we reach our goal of a real, bona fide board game hitting the market and ruining DJT's holiday season. Our actual hard costs to produce this thing will be around $55,000. We set the goal to make the DIY version, but our hearts are in the bona fide board game.
Be a part of history and contribute NOW. Pretty please, with a fake blonde toupee on top?
