About

Please check Update #10 for important information regarding the cancelation and re-launch of this project.

The first in a series of party games where players choose Fool, Crisis and Bad Decision cards to create silly situations.

Who doesn't enjoy laughing about Fools responding to Crises with Bad Decisions?

News Flash: Bad Decisions introduces a new line of party card games with a Mad-Libs®-inspired style of play from Diamond Dust Dreams Inc., the creators of Kitsune: of Foxes and Fools. Teleprompter prompt cards include color-coded blanks, for which players choose combinations of Fool, Crisis, and Bad Decision cards to create amusing situations.

News Flash: Bad Decisions starts the series off with a headline news theme: The News Anchor reads the top card from the Teleprompter deck, plays up to two cards to suggest a direction, filling the first blank(s) from his or her own hand. The Reporters (other players) anonymously complete the remaining blanks, suggesting possible, ironic or ridiculous news stories by the cards they play. The Anchor then chooses which story makes the cut to “go on air.” The Anchor position moves clockwise around the group; Reporters compete to have the most Top Stories aired.

Future card sets in the Bad Decisions line may cover themes from History for different regions of the world, from playing RPGs, and from media sources, such as Horror Movies. And guess what? We have a reward level that lets you help us decide which themes to produce first!

Add-On Rewards

Backers may add-on the following rewards to any level:

$25 - Additional copy of the game. If you are already receiving a copy of News Flash: Bad Decisions, you can add more copies to your rewards for $25 each.

$30 - Bad Decisions coffee mug or T-shirt. Available with the phrases "I ♥ Bad Decisions" or "I Make Bad Decisions," The "Bad Decisions" in each phrase is the game line's logo.

$75 - Producer expansion. If you are receiving a copy of the game, you can receive the limited edition Producer Expansion for an additional $75 per copy.

Stretch Goals

Sometimes things go better than expected. What plans do we have? So far, a small extra:

$30,000 - Immediate expansion. With an additional $10k beyond our goal, we could do an expansion to Bad Decisions immediately. The topic nominated by the most backers would be produced and ready by early 2015.

$45,000 - Bonus round. Everybody who's getting a copy of the game gets an extra copy, due to a drop in the cost of production when we can produce more copies, and a drop in the cost of funds when we have them all up front.

Risks and challenges

We're shooting for a much more aggressive goal this time with our second Kickstarter project: with $20,000 we can fund the print run of the game entirely or almost entirely from the Kickstarter project. Since the art assets for this game are 90% finished already, this will allow us to immediately produce the game and get it to people in time for Christmas. This means we'll have to get the word out to about 4x as many people as we did last time to make our goal. We'll also have to push ourselves hard to make sure we don't waste any time so we make our aggressive deadline to deliver the game.
