About

Hello wonderful citizens of Kickstarter - Alexander and Sean from Bad Kerning Games here again! We’re excited to launch this new campaign for Sell Outs!

Sell Outs is a party card game about solving curious problems with absurd creative solutions! This turn-based game is for 3-10 players, and takes 60 to 120 minutes to play. That said, this game is perfect for players to pick up at any time, and if you want to end the game early, who are we to stop you? What's most important is that you have fun!

Here are some quotes from our players:

"Stop asking me questions!" - My Dad
Each player always has three white Product cards and five black Feature cards.

Each player should always have 3 white Product cards and 5 black Feature cards. After each player has been the Customer in a round, you have the option of discarding any number of cards in your hand, and drawing new cards.

One player draws a Problem scenario and reads it out loud.

Problem cards have frustrating or difficult situations that can be solved any number of ways. Got a honey badger living in your bathroom? Maybe you could shoot at it until it leaves, maybe you can buy a new house and move, or maybe you can tell it the truth, that no one lives rent free in your house.

Some Problem Card Examples
Each other player chooses one Product and one Feature from their hand.

When picking your Product, you are allowed to interpret them in any way that is beneficial to you. If you have a Predator, it could be a Predator missile, Predator drone, Predator alien, a dangerous animal, or anything you can think of. Many cards are left intentionally vague for this reason. 

Draw a random Feature from the Feature deck and add it to your Product.

 Each player grabs a random Feature that should not be looked at until they are ready to reveal the card for your pitch.

Each player gives a pitch of their own Product to the player with the Problem.

Pitch your Product to the Customer. Tell the Customer how your Product addresses their Problem and/or their way of life. This is where you get the chance to shine. Explain your choices, spin the bad stuff, get the sale. 

The Customer buys the Product that best solves their Problem.

The Customer gets to choose who wins the turn by buying one of the Products with their almighty dollar. Pay the Salesperson by flipping your Problem card face down and handing it to the winner of the turn.

This game is being made by Bad Kerning Games, makers of Sell Outs Traveling Salesman Edition, and they've got many new games in the works. But we can't do any of this without each and every one of our incredible backers! We love Sell Outs, and we think you will too!

An absurdly large shout-out to our incredible families and friends that helped to make this project a reality. Special mention: Megan D, Shanay F, Nathan K, Will B, Nina and Jeff D, and Jim and Diane T!

Thank to you every single con-goer and play-tester that helped us fine tune Sell Outs into what it is today! From Setsucon, Gen Con, MAGFest and beyond! And to those who are nice and listen to us when we ramble about how much fun it is!

The song in the campaign video is Crimson Fly from Huma-Huma.

You may have noticed the interesting font we use on our cards. This aptly named font is called Dyslexie, and was created by Christian Boer. Christian has Dyslexia and wanted to design a font that's easier to read for those with the condition. We decided to utilize this font to help make Sell Outs more accessible! 

Their website can be found here!

Risks and challenges

We're very ecstatic that you've made it this far down the page!

We have one successful and fully fulfilled Kickstarter under our belt, and even though this is a second attempt at launching Sell Outs, we've learned so much from the first attempt and beyond that we have utmost confidence we can fulfill this project if successful. We are committed to doing whatever it takes to get you your rewards!

The game is fully designed, and all the cards are written, so we are nearly ready to send our files to the printers as soon as the campaign is over. Our printer has a good reputation in the board game community, so we do not expect quality issues.

We promise to work as hard as we can to get you your rewards as fast as we can, and with the quality we promised.

On that topic of growth, we as a company plan to keep getting better at what we do. We want to be a company you can count on for quality, inclusiveness and fun!

Here's to a successful campaign!

Thank you,
Bad Kerning Games
