Why should you trust us? Because according to many almost-reputable websites, we have known the truth for years. Why trust the news when we make the news? Help us forge the future by making your own conspiracies at home, like we’ve been doing for over three decades. Who knows, maybe one of your own conspiracies will make the front page!
This fast-playing black card/white card game will reward your ability to sell your deranged ideas to the other players.
In Conspiracy Theory, you explore who’s really doing what, to whom, and why . . . and how they are keeping it secret. And you have to convince the other players that your theory is best.
This is a stand-alone game by Illuminati designer Steve Jackson, for 3 or more players, and it takes an hour or more to play.
Conspiracy Theory is NOT an “adults only” game. Neither is it a game where the referee has the lion’s share of the fun. It is designed for active involvement by every player in every round.
What you’ll get:
• The basic set. At least 480 cards. More if stretch goals are met.
• The exclusive supplement. A pack of cards that will never be produced again; they’re only for the Kickstarter backers.

Risks and challenges
Steve Jackson Games is an established game publisher with a successful track record and we have enough Kickstarter experience to deal with issues should they arise. The game has already been designed and print buying completed; now you're going to tell us how many to print! As we've done in the past, we will stay in touch with our backers during and after the Kickstarter, all the way through fulfillment of the rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
