We Didn't Playtest This at All is many things, but thematically rich? Well, we never got around to adding all those cool art bits that are all the rage in games today. So we decided to add a theme! But we couldn't choose just one. So we are adding at least three: Zombies, Elves, Time Travel, and Spaceships. Er...four. Four themes, at least!
What is this nonsense?
So, perhaps you have not heard of the Playtest series. If so, welcome to the fun and insanity! We Didn't Playtest This at All is a very simple card game, where you are destined to win or lose within about a minute. Games are quick, capricious, hilarious, exhilirating, and also other long adjectives. Here are some cards from previous editions:
What's in the Box?
Each copy of We Didn't Playtest This Pasted-On Theme at All comes with 90 cards. 54 cards like the ones above, and 36 "Thematic Conclusion" cards which will create a dramatic (and thematically appropriate!) ending to the game, based on certain events. Zombie apocalypse? Possible! Zombie dance party? ALSO POSSIBLE! Zombie political debate? Too close to reality, sorry.
This game is playable stand-alone, or combined with any or all previous versions of Playtest.
We could have normal stretch rewards, where there's this big list of dollar numbers and associated goals next to them. BORING! Instead, we have concocted a random list of rewards! Every time a milestone is reached, we shall roll and consult the TABLE OF DESTINY see what reward gets added, and a new milestone will be added to the list. All rolls, of course, will be broadcast to the Internet. What is more exciting than watching me roll a die?

Why Kickstart This?
Kickstarting a fun little project like this lets it happen now, rather than later. This is an ULTRA SHORT campaign (five days!), because if funded, we're going to go to press basically immediately, so that you get games before the holidays! Otherwise, we'd probably release this next year. But really, I want more games now, don't you?
Risks and challenges
We are keeping this Kickstarter project simple, just games and some easy to fulfill bonus rewards. Nothing in here is stuff we haven't done before, but if setbacks were to happen, we'd keep everyone who backed in the loop as soon as we knew information (like if our factory were conquered by penguin ninjas, you would be the first to know!)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
