About this project
Basket of Deplorables is an old-school board game with new twists. The players - Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Elizabeth Warren - navigate the Campaign Trail competing to take on Trump in the 2020 election. Along the way, they’ll become embroiled in scandals, seek endorsements, enter debates, consult pollsters, compete in primaries and caucuses, and most importantly, fill their Baskets with “Deplorables,” who are the more dubious members of the Trump Administration.
Makes a great gift for your distressed liberal friends and family!
10% of any and all lifetime profits made on this game will go to organizations protecting the vulnerable and pushing back against the Trump agenda.

Risks and challenges
As this is my first Kickstarter campaign, I want to assure you that I have done my homework to an OCD level. I have my manufacturing, freight, and fulfillment set up and all my files ready to go. I will also be working with a pledge manager.
While there are always risks, I WILL NOT allow anyone to lose their money. I have a decent paying day job and I promise to refund every backer out of my own pocket if anything goes wrong.
There is a possibility that unforeseen snafus along the way might delay the delivery date, although the listed date is comfortably within the timeframes provided by the manufacturer, freight company, and fulfillment centers. If at any point that date needs to be pushed back, I will notify every backer of that development and offer an immediate full refund to any backer that doesn’t want to give me the extra time. I even have a short-term loan arranged so that I don’t have to wait for the Kickstarter funds to clear before paying the manufacturer. The minute this campaign comes even close to funding, I will be paying for all molding and set up costs, so that full production can begin as soon as I know the size of my order.
Once again, thank you for putting your trust in me and I can’t wait to get this wonderful game to you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
