This adult card game challenges you and your friends to reveal your “true-self” using topics of sexuality, race, history, religion, socio-economics, kindness, brutality, and many other categories. Each game should end in roaring laughter, broken friendships or divorce. And if it doesn’t, you’re doing it wrong.
This game is personal. You and your friends will not only laugh over the questions asked, but you will be rolling based on each other’s answers. Composure enables you to make fun of your friends, challenge stereotypes, and discuss taboo situations without consequence.
You’ll be having conversations that you’ve probably never had before all because of Composure. If you back Composure, you’ll be welcomed into the Savage Society. And if you don’t, fine, whatever.
250 terrible cards to test your relationships plus an extra 50 cards created by you guys, totaling 300 cards! You'll also get 100 game chips to keep score. Play until you run out or your friendships have been destroyed.
Newly added: 50 additional cards from local NC comedians. Back it!
You’re not playing one of those games where you answer a card with a card you think is funny. That’s too easy.
The green Composure cards will be asked as questions for the group to discuss and try to stay calm and composed, no matter how outrageous the topic is. Some cards ask you to challenge racist stereotypes, while others challenge religion. Along the way we add some sex and social behavior, and we can find out what everyone really thinks.
We have faith that you can keep your cool, but if you can’t, then you’re a loser. Simple.
Composure will be published by Ad Magic, the leaders in game publishing. They have experience manufacturing millions of copies for other games like Cards Against Humanity and Exploding Kittens.
WE GOT THIS!
The reason I started this game was because I noticed, all around me, everyone was getting really sensitive. We’ve gotten to a place as a society where no one can say anything anymore without offending someone. I just remember growing up in a different time where saying something offensive didn’t cost so much. People today are actually getting fired, businesses are closing, and it’s all because we can’t speak freely. Why do I have to police my jokes because someone’s feelings might get hurt. That’s ridiculous.
With Composure, I want to bring back the opportunity for us to talk openly and freely. This is a game for people that are absolutely sick of the righteously offended.
We turned to Kickstarter because we saw ourselves in the making of a controversial game that has the potential to be huge. We believe Composure will open up great conversation and bring people together over crazy topics. We want to create a truly different kind of card game that will be fun for those who play it. The funds raised during this campaign will help us place initial orders with our manufacturer. Every dollar counts towards giving you the ability to become part of the Savage Society. Our goal is to continue to create games that challenge who we really are as people. We have a couple terrible ones ready to go and hope Kickstarter can not only start Composure, but also a company that will continue to deliver controversial and challenging games.
We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make Composure a reality.
We know not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, so even if you can’t give a dollar or purchase Composure, if you’re a supporter of Composure, you can help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of!
Risks and challenges
There are always certain risks that can arise at any moment during a project like this. That being said, we’re confident in our ability to produce, and have taken all the necessary measures. We have partnered with the leaders in card game production, Ad Magic, that has years of experience in this particular industry under their belt. We just need your help to bring everything to fruition. We are completely prepared to bring Composure to you, and we have the manpower to make it happen, but if anything comes up along the way, you’ll be the first to know.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
