About

Love to express your crazy sense of humor?

Dumpster Dealers is a party game where you creatively persuade your friends to buy absurd NSFW products, in 3 uniquely hilarious game modes.

You get to become the ultimate sleazy salesman

 But you've got a big problem: You don't have any real products to sell your customers. Instead, you'll have to dig through your dumpster of filthy cards and be creatively persuasive in order to sell your absurd products.

There are two type of cards in Dumpster Dealers. 

Dumpster Cards:

Each card contains a single word. You can combine any two of these cards to create a product.

Dumpster Dollars:

These cards are two sided and have a different Customer role on each side. In every game mode, your goal is to get the most Dumpster Dollars.

 There are 3 unique ways to play, but the basic idea of the game is to get creative and come up with great uses for ridiculous products.

STRETCH GOALS!

Depending on how many wonderful trash lovers back our game, we'll be able to upgrade the amount of cards, quality of the cards and the box it comes in. Without any strech goals, you'll still be getting: 

340 Dumpster Cards 

40 Dumpster Dollars with 80 unique roles (x2 per card) 

+20 bonus Kickstarter exclusive cards

 If we reach the levels below, we'll make upgrades to the game for everyone who pledged to get the physical game or higher.

$7,000 - + 10 fan submitted cards bonus expansion added once we reach our funding goal!

$10,000 - + 20 card bonus expansion

 [ We'll reveal more stretch goals as we get closer! ]

FREE SHIPPING TO THE UNITED STATES!

Everywhere else, add +$8 to the pledge amount to receive that reward level. We have arranged a fulfillment company we'll be using in the US, EU, Canada and Australia to make customs and such easier.

So you may be wondering:

"Why isn't there a more expensive version of Dumpster Dealers where you get more cards?"

This wasn't an easy decision - But I decided this was best for everybody for a few reasons. The good news is that we're leaving room for expansions in the box we send, and we'll be making lots of interesting expansions that you can buy later if you like the game enough.

The first reason is this is our first Kickstarter game, and I want the process to be as absolutely smooth as possible for all our backers. By having only one version of the game that means bulk savings allow us to give away the game for cheaper, and with free shipping. The more backers we get, the more cards everyone gets. Also, less complications of dealing with different shipping sizes, weights, and keeping track of who bought which version. Am I capable of doing that? Of course. But does that open up a lot more room for errors or unforeseen complications? Also Yes. Along those lines, I've put the expected reward date at a very conservative December for the physical game in case we have issues in the manufacturing process, but I hope to surprise everyone by getting it in your hands sooner. Plus, I like the idea of everybody getting the exact same game, so all of us dumpster lovers can unlock stretch goals together.

Risks and challenges

Usually the biggest challenge that comes along with Kickstarter projects is managing several reward tiers and managing fulfillment for every game piece that need to be produced and shipped. I've seen several projects put themselves in a bad position due to unforeseen costs because they created a lot of reward tiers and variations on their game, and I won't let that happen to our backers with this game. We're going to keep our Kickstarter rewards as simple as possible, so that we can make getting this game very affordable to everyone. We're only going to be producing one version of the game for all our backers, meaning each person that pledges will be helping to reduce the cost per game. With this extra money that gets saved, at each stretch goal we'll be doing things like adding more expansion cards for everyone, and increasing the quality of the box and cards.

By backing our game, you are helping to make this game a reality. We can't do it without your help.
Our 7,000 dollar target is the specific minimum order cost we have worked out with our manufacturer, Ace Cards Company, and is what it will take to produce our game and get it shipped to our distributor company. $7,000 doesn't include the distributor's shipping costs to get it to backers though, so I'll chip in my own personal funds to meet the difference if necessary, which I've estimated won't be more than $1,500. Whatever happens I'll make sure you get the game. In the potential scenario where we just barely get to our goal, we will buy the minimum order quantity, and while it is being manufactured we will continue advertising and selling pre-order copies on our website until we have none left to sell from the bulk order being created.

We'd like everybody to be able to hit the pledge button with complete confidence in our game, so we're going to offer a full pledge refund if you aren't satisfied with the game you receive. Just ship it back to us, and we'll refund you for everything except whatever it cost you to ship it back to us.
