About this project
I bet you’re asking yourself, what is this? Let me start off – I love games. I do. I do. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise: nobody loves games more than me, and when it comes to games, I love them. I do. I’ve made plenty of games – I’ve provided more games to the American people than Obama ever will, ever has been, will go, games. And this one – it’s the greatest game of all time, mark my words. The best. Anyone that says different – we’re fighting a war here, ladies and gentlemen, a war, against fake news. If this game doesn’t get funded, we’ll know – it’s phony, America. This game is going to be huge.
Based off the popular game Mafia, Not My President is a high-energy, 3-12 player game of deception that lasts 5-10 minutes per round. Using your best poker face, diversionary tactics, and a lot of finger pointing, the goal of Not My President is to either find the Trump Supporters amongst you, or, if you are one, to keep yourself hidden through any means necessary. Lying, spreading chaos, and blaming others are highly encouraged tactics. The game begins when players randomly select and privately view a “role card,” dividing the party into two groups: Trump Supporters and Reasonable People. Players then close their eyes for the election night. During this phase, the free app guides you through the special abilities of your assigned roles. Players secretly swap cards, change identities, and cause more mayhem than a private email server. When everyone has taken their turn, players open their eyes, and the accusations begin. After 5-10 minutes, players vote for who they believe to be the most likely Trump Supporter. If they’re wrong, the Trump Supporters win. If they’re right, it’s probably fake news, and the Reasonable People win.
The game includes 16 role cards (thick chipboard), 16 character chipboard tokens, 4 SJW chipboard tokens, and one game manual. Players choose which roles to include, making each round unique and allowing for dozens of possible combinations for extremely versatile gameplay. And, if you lack a voice with the appropriate gravitas to guide players through their roles, the free app is conveniently available for iOS and Android. Backers who contribute $35 receive a limited edition custom playmat 14"x24" detailing a high resolution print of the game banner!
Because this game is so great and since we don't want anyone to feel left out of the party we have made a free downloadable app to narrate the game! Trust me its not Skynet, an extremely credible source told me so. Includes adjustable settings and soundtracks for those of you who like to spice things up a little.

Risks and challenges
Since we are building a great game, and nobody builds games better than us, we do not expect any potential risks or challenges during this campaign. We have a great relationship with CHIYNA so you can expect great things!
But in all seriousness a number of things can happen that could delay this project, including printing complications, and shipping delays. While we've attempted to foresee as many potential issues as possible, some things may not be in our control. Otherwise as you can see from our Kickstarter page and website we are ready to place an order with one of the amazing manufactures that we have contacted. We have already worked out the logistics for the final product and are waiting to see the interest in the game in order to place a bulk order and include any stretch goals that we might reach! And remember don't let any negative game reviews dissuade you, they are just fake news.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
