About this project

So we have created this morally reprehensible board game. As a player you play the role of Pimp and gather properties - i.e. hookers. Battling other players to take their properties is just one aspect of the game that really shines, allowing strong fighting words to be traded amongst players and a genuinely good time.

This game fits best in your pre-game routine. Get some people together before going out, grab a few drinks, and roll the dice. We guarantee that you will be in a good mood and ready for the night. It is easy to play, easy to learn, and ridiculously fun.

You will like this game if: 

• You like easy games like Cards Against Humanity
• You like dark humor
• You enjoy retro-style board games

We need your help to finally make this game a reality. If we can raise $15,000 we can add that to our independent funds to make 1000 games.

Game Board, 32 full color score cards, 12 full color Ho cards, custom designed game money, and custom game playing pieces.


Game Board:
The colorful board is full of dangerous events. There are ladies of the night, score cards, cops to run away from, drug deals gone bad, etc.

Custom Game Pieces: We hand carved these custom game pieces and lost-wax cast the masters out of silver. We are pleased to be able to include them in our production model.

Score Cards: The score cards are items that you ‘score’ along the way. They are either Drugs, Weapons, Bling or Wildcards. You can use Drugs and Bling to try and talk the girls into working for you and you can use the weapons to battle other pimps and take their escorts.

12 Call Girl Cards: These are what you want - but you gotta pay to see what's on the other side. (Hint: They are naked ladies!)

Game Money: Custom designed game money represents the only thing that matters in this game. Get the most of this and win the game. 

The final production model for the game has only four denominations - these two didn’t make the final cut. But as a Kickstart backer we will send you a stack of each bill for use with your game. You will be the only people around with these original denominations - including the amazing $1,000 bill!

Quick Overview:

Players take turns rolling the dice and moving around the board. Classic roll-and-move game. But don’t let that fool you, the magic is in player interaction and maximizing the amount of fun and laughter to be had while playing.

Landing on a Ho gives you these options: - If no one ‘owns’ that Ho you can try to ‘Mack’ her, using drug cards and bling cards to entice her to work for you. - If she is currently employed you have to pay her employer, after which you have the option to fight. Use weapon cards to add to your dice roll - if success you take the Ho, if you lose the fight your opponent takes one of your Hos.

At the end all players tally up their cards, properties and cash. He who has the most wins.

$17,000 - Score Card Expansion Pack
All of our play testers are bloody-thirsty violent types and all want more weapons. Our initial stretch goal will help us print our first Score Card expansion pack, with tons more crazy weapons.

$18,000 - Create Your Own Ho Cards
Our second stretch goal will allow us to create Ho Card Stickers. It will be the full set of Ho Cards - with the names and values on the sticker - and you can find the perfect Ho picture for each card. For the back you can cut out images from your favorite Playboy or Hustler. Who are we kidding, you’ll just download the images from the internet and print them out.

$21,500 - Ho Card Expansion Pack
Help us get to this goal so that we can release a whole new deck of Ho Cards with all new XXX pictures of the ladies.

There are many things to worry about and many injustices in the world. Fortunately this is just a board game and we’ve got to learn how to laugh at life. Join us in fining the humor in uncomfortable realities.

Still mad?

We are well aware that we are just privileged Americans. If this game ends up ‘making it’ (i.e. - we make more than a thousand games and it becomes profitable) we will donate 1$ from every sale directly to the notforsale.org charity - a campaign to stop sex trafficking. Relax, we're not here to be evil.

Risks and challenges

We have quotes and manufacturing costs from several manufacturers. We would like to go with Delano Manufacturing. We already have a good repoire with them and would like to use them for casting.

We have broken down all of our cost estimates here:

Game Production Costs:
Delano Quote.......$13,656
Shipping .............$2,000
Pieces .............$2,500
Photo Licensing ..$1,200
Total ...................$19,356

We want to raise $15,000 to help us offset the cost of production. We have several thousand dollars saved up for the remainder of production costs and operating expenses.

We have asked our manufacturers for timeframes and so far everything checks out for being able to get games out by Christmas if all goes well. Of course that is not accounting for unforeseen circumstances. This is a tight time-line, so please bear with us. We are going to try our best to make this the best Christmas ever.

Jason and I will use our combined past experiences to setup shop. For instance, I have setup a small warehouse to streamline order fulfillment in the past and have the skills necessary to run this aspect. We are getting our business papers in line and have a book-keeper. We have experience running small operations, online shopping cart programming, packing & shipping, keeping costs down, and generally getting things done. This could be our first opportunity to do this with board games and we are very excited about the possibilities.
