The idea is that all of the players are part of a social network for Alter Egos, where everybody can be whoever they want to be. However, there is a catch - you don't know what your profile image looks like, so when you describe your Alter Ego story it will probably sound crazy and a lot more fun to all other players (because they can see your profile image).
The main objective of the game is to collect as much reaction tokens as you can. The one with most tokens wins the game!
One box of Meet My Alter Egoz card game includes:
- 200 x Unique character cards
- 18 x Reaction tokens
- 1 x Custom card stand
- 1 x Plastic card stand
- 1 x Game rules book
Every character card is 300 gsm with linen finish + black core. Black core is an extra black layer placed in the middle of the cards, this layer blocks lights from shining through your card. This way the Alter Ego won't be able to see the card, when it's on the card stand and will prevent ruining the game. One card dimensions are 70 x 110 cm.
Only backers with $30 pledge or more might participate. Submitting a character does not mean that your character will be included in the final game. We will review all character submissions and we will include the 20 best characters evaluated on several criteria.
What will happen if no characters are submitted?
If no backers submit characters, the game will still be printed with 200 characters (we have designed more than 200 characters).
- because we simply can't do it without you! Without your pledge we won't be able to draw all of the amazing characters and print the game. Help us to bring the game to life and show the world the sweetest granny stripper, the most enthusiastic dabbing priest, the most shy geek, this outerspace pink-purplish Schmolek, the mighty Octotits, the human wannabe sex doll and many many more!
- because you can be part of the game by submitting an idea for a character, which we might include.
- because you get the game cheaper.
Meet my Alter Egoz was born, when one cold day Jordan was telling Chrissy a story about a game that he used to play, when he was younger with his friends. A game of “blind” and “drunk” poker, where all players place a card in front of their foreheads without seeing it and start betting. This day we knew that we want to create a party game, which will feature this concept.
The problem was what type of game to build on this concept where the main card will be hidden from the player. We were browsing some of the social networks when it hit us - why not create a social network for crazy people. Let's face it - many of the people on the social networks are not who they say they are. One can see an image, but the person behind it might be totally insane!
This is how all started, the name of the game came almost instantly and we liked it very much. We needed to work on the cards - the most difficult, but also best part!
We wanted the game to be funny and easy to play and for us there were two important things – to have crazy, super fun and non-seen-before characters and an easy gameplay that makes people extract even their darkest secrets...or just be creative and tell goofy stories.
We started to sketch the bizarre heroes of ours, and we came to problem No.1 - we can not draw in a way that we want our cards to be drawn. Here you can see our unspeakable and botched attempts to draw an old magician, fitness girl and an unfortunate likeness of a super hero (the super hero is not that bad :D):
That's why we had to find people who are way more talented than us. This is how we met Erik and Linda from Tazer Studio. Two amazing people (for sure equally crazy as us), true professionals and great human beings in general.
This is what they did to our sketches:
Awesome, right :) Now imagine what the next 180 characters will look like!
A lot of people helped us during the whole pre-Kickstarter process and we've received great feedback from all of them.
There was a lot of brainstorming, testing, designing, laughing and again laughing. We won't be naming all of the people, but they know who they are...hopefully :D

Thank you all again!!!
Risks and challenges
Because this is our first project, we have checked and double-checked all risks and challenges that might stand in our way to deliver the product successfully to our backers.
Basically there are no risks, because we are going to print the game with WinGo, which is a well-established game manufacturer. The delivery will be done by Quartermaster Logistics, they have delivered products from many successful Kickstarter campaigns to their backers.
We have one main challenge, which is finalizing all 200 characters ready for the game. Of course we have a great team which is ready to face the challenge and we are more than sure that we are going to deliver the product at the beginning of 2019, January to be more precise.
There is one more challenge if the project reaches its goal sooner than we expect, and these are the stretch goals. We have planned a few of them, but they should not affect the main game production.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
