If you can judge others, then you can play Jobstacles (TM), and with over four million card combinations and a fun new twist in party games, you can host the ultimate game night.

Quick thinking, laughs and constant sabotage are the name of the game, and who hasn't wanted secretly to turn a hopeful applicant's dreams to dust?  Don't worry.  They will have their revenge next round. 

Decisions and timing matter.  To win, you can choose to sabotage other candidates or use your turn to strengthen your own candidate.

Jobstacles makes a great gift for new grads or anyone thinking of - or forced into - a career change or anyone who can see the humor inherent in the "hire-me" process.

 Beyond my infectious energy, commitment to excellence or another canned response you're taught to give in real interviews?  Well, actually yes.  I need money to get this project off the ground.  Your pledge will help pay for manufacturing and shipping and offset my past expenses (like artwork and video production).

Each game comes with blank Jobs and Jobstacle cards to personalize the fun, so unfunny friends may also be a weakness.  Choose wisely.

What's in the box and when can I get it?

Shipping for a single game is a flat $5 USD fee to US locations, $10 fee to Canada, $15 fee to UK addresses and $20-$30 to every other eligible location around the world.  Check the sidebar for details.  As an EU friendly shipping product, backers should not have to pay any additional taxes or fees.

Risks and challenges

Jobstacles is a project/product I am deeply passionate about and I am so excited to get copies of this game into your hands and living rooms.

To that end, I have done a lot of pre-work to facilitate a smooth fulfillment process. All the artwork and packaging is done. After the Kickstarter is complete, I have built in a short period of time to collect the additional card content from backers. From there, I have already lined up a manufacturer, working with seasoned veterans of Kickstarter projects. I have also built in funding to work with various fulfillment companies globally (again to facilitate on-time deliveries).

As you can see, I have kept my rewards simple. In all honesty, I really want people to start playing and giving the game and laughing with their friends and family, and I know one successful project pays great dividends.
