About

 Are you annoyed, exhausted, and fed up with our politicians and news media? Then look no further, Partisans and Pundits is the game for you! Players use the cards in their hand to invent the most absurd, the most hilarious, the most blatantly partisan news headline. It doesn’t matter if you’re liberal, conservative, Democrat, Republican, or a Libertarian: Partisans and Pundits’ cards and rules conform to your own beliefs and partisanship! This party game is for 3 or more players and recommended for ages 17 and up.

 All players begin the game by drawing five yellow Partisans and Pundits cards and four green Politics as Usual cards.

Players take turns as The Viewer (we suggest the youngest player in the game, or whoever is the least corrupted by our country’s politics, should be The Viewer first!). The Viewer begins a round by drawing one purple Fake News card, laying it down, face up for everyone to see.

Filling in the blanks on the Fake News card with the cards in their hand, the players take turns reading the Fake News card aloud in their best imitation of an obnoxious and unbearable cable news anchor. The Viewer chooses their favorite headline. Whether it’s the funniest, craziest, or maybe even the most “accurate” headline is up to The Viewer!

The winner of that round keeps the Fake News card, which is worth “millions and millions” of viewers! At the end of the game, the player with the most viewers (Fake news cards) wins the game.

And we know what you’re going to ask... The answer is, Yes! With Partisans and Pundits, you’ll finally be able to give your own spin to some of Trump’s most infamous tweets.

 Our Kickstarter fundraising goal will help cover the cost of manufacturing and delivering the game by March 2020.

 If you like our game and want to support our Kickstarter campaign, then make a pledge to receive your very own copy of Partisans and Pundits:

  • With a pledge of $30 or more, you get the Partisan Package! This includes one copy of Partisans and Pundits, one of our custom-designed Partisans and Pundits drink koozies, good karma, and our gratitude. For shipping information, please check the shipping section below.
  • You want to spread the partisanship? Fantastic! With a pledge of $50 or more, you'll receive two copies of Partisans and Pundits, two very cool Partisans and Pundits drink koozies, good karma, and our gratitude.
  • You're unapologetically partisan? Congrats! With a pledge of $60 or more, you get three copies of Partisans and Pundits, three very cool Partisans and Pundits drink koozies, good karma, and our eternal gratitude.

We recommend NOT using Microsoft Edge to make a pledge. While trying several times to pledge money to another Kickstarter campaign, it took us to a blank page instead of processing the payment. We suggest using Google Chrome, since it worked for us.  

If you don’t want to pledge any money, then that’s fine! But just be warned, you may be haunted by the Ghost of Richard Nixon.

If we reach our $25,000 stretch goal, then we will deliver a copy of Partisans and Pundits to 25 Washington partisans of our backers’ choosing! You will have the opportunity to vote for the partisans of your choice on the backer survey at the end of the Kickstarter campaign.

Forget $25,000. If we reach our $50,000 stretch goal, then we will deliver a copy of Partisans and Pundits to 50 Washington partisans!

That’s right, we’re talking “big-league” numbers now! If we reach our $100,000 stretch goal, then we will deliver a copy of Partisans and Pundits to 100 Washington partisans!

We will film and post our efforts to hand deliver the games on our website: partisansandpundits.com

According to legend, Partisans and Pundits was once forged in the same volcano that gave birth to Donald Trump and the original manuscripts of Ayn Rand’s novels. Capable of multiplying when it comes into contact with water, this enigmatic creature corrupts the hearts and minds of everyone who plays it. Upon our discovery of the game, we did everything we could to destroy it and save America from its wicked ways, but every one of our attempts only made it stronger.

Seriously though, this game began as a creative outlet for us to blow off steam during this increasingly frustrating and divisive political and news media environment. Inspired every time we tuned in to the news, we continued tweaking the gameplay and experimenting with new cards until we felt it was just right.


Not enough politics in your digital life? No worries! Here at Partisans and Pundits, we plan to do our very best in poisoning the waters of social media even more. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay updated on the game and share all of our snarky memes!

Risks and challenges

The risks involved with Partisans and Pundits are low. This is our first time developing a game, but we’ve done our research and studied other Kickstarter campaigns to fully understand the process. We are all set to go to print once our Kickstarter goal is met. Our first game shipment will arrive in plenty of time to deliver by March 2020. We have chosen AdMagic to print Partisans and Pundits and we are already working with them to make our game a reality. Their many years of experience printing Kickstarter games should minimize risks for our fulfillment process.

In the event of unanticipated issues, we will communicate promptly with all supporters and do our very best to get ahead of any challenges that develop. We have poured our hearts and souls into this game and we are fully committed to delivering it to you as quickly as possible. As with all Kickstarter campaigns, if we don't reach our goal, you will not be charged.
