After a successful Kickstarter campaign for our seriously funny argumentation game Debatable, we're now back with a new project called Fix the World. Is it fun? Is it serious? It's both!
Thanks to the hexagonal cards there are 5,688,000 different combinations of keywords and problems, which means that Fix the World contains MUCH MORE CONTENT than most similar games (including games that have much more cards).
If you want to learn more about how to play Fix the World you can download the rules here.
Fix the World is designed to be a fun game that everyone can play, but just like our game Debatable it also raises awareness for important issues in the world today.
The world has a lot of problems, and media usually only report the doom and gloom, painting a very bleak picture. With Fix the World we hope that we can get people talking more about possible solutions, rather than just complaining about the problems, and of course have a lot of fun while doing it.
We don't really believe in Kickstarter Exclusive content that change how the core game works, however we still think it's nice to be able to offer something exclusive for those of you who believe in our idea at an early stage.
So, apart from the base game, we will offer a special edition that includes an extra card and an expansion deck, as well as a personal edition that will make your copy of Fix the World the only copy in existence.
If you want two copies of a pledge level, simply double the amount when making your pledge, and you can of course also triple the amount for three copies, quadruple it for four, etc. Or, if you for example want one special edition of the game, and one regular version as well, just add $22 to your special edition pledge.
Shipping is still free regardless of how many games you want, but Kickstarter does not allow more than 10 copies per pledge.
If you have any questions about our pledge levels, don't hesitate to send us a message here on Kickstarter and ask us.
Addons are simple, especially in this case since we're offering just one addon. So, if you also want our political party game Debatable (it's really fun), simply add $20 to your pledge. That is the same price the original backers paid + $1, and of course cheaper than retail. Free shipping worldwide is included in the price.
For example: If you want both Fix the World and Debatable, pledge for a total amount of $42 ($22+$20).
To learn more about Debatable, please check out our successful Kickstarter campaign, or have a look at this nice little review from Youtuber Actualol who awarded Debatable with the number 7 spot in his best party games of 2017 roundup.
Please see our shipping cost chart below to learn how much shipping costs to your country.
Yeah you read it right! FREE shipping is included for ALL backers regardless of where you live.
Special information for backers from South America, Central America, Africa and India: Based on experience we have learned that shipping to these parts of the world can be troublesome. We will make one free delivery attempt, but if your shipment is lost, we will contact you and ask you to pay an extra fee for more expensive and safer delivery options, or refund your pledge if you prefer that. We apologize for this, but this is the best solution we can think of to be able to offer free shipping to everyone. We hope you understand.
For USA and Canada we will mainly work with fulfillment companies to make sure your rewards are sent with tracking number from within your country, which is very safe and without customs fees. For the EU, we will handle shipping ourselves, and since we're in the EU, there will be no customs charges.
We also have a lot of experience sending things to non-EU Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and we promise that we will handle ALL costs related to shipping and customs to these locations as well. And that means we can put all these nice stickers on our campaign. Yay!
For the rest of the world any fees related to customs will be your responsibility. This has however never been a problem during our previous campaigns, so most likely you will not pay anything extra.
We think one of the best things about Kickstarter is that our backers can be part of the project. So, we have come up with a fun expansion deck for the game called "First World Problems" that you can help us create. Just as the name implies, it will be an additional deck of cards containing not big global problems, but smaller issues that frustrate and annoy us.
This expansion will be Kickstarter exclusive, and it will be included for all backers who select either the special edition, the party game pack or the personal edition pledge level.
The expansion will contain 20 first world problem cards and to make it extra fun, we will let you help us come up with the problems. First, we'll ask you to send in suggestions of first world problems that we will add to our list of problems. Then, when we feel the list is long enough, we will vote about which problems to include.
If you want to make your copy of the Fix the World unique, the personal edition pledge level includes an additional 10 cards for a total of 30 expansion cards. And YOU get to decide which problems you want to include on the 10 additional cards in your copy of the game. So, if there are some frustrating things in your and/or your friends life you need help to solve, (or just want to joke about) here's your chance!
Mindmade Games is Magnus and Elin Holmgren. We’re in our mid-30s and we’ve been glued to each other since 2002, and in 2016 we finally got married. We’re both from the deep-frozen northern parts of Sweden, but we’ve lived just outside the capital Stockholm for 15 years now.
About three years ago we started a game company called Tingletouch Games that creates sexy and romantic games for couples. In total we’ve run five successful Kickstarter campaigns for our three games, Bedroom Battle, Dare Duel and Luck & Love.
Last spring we both decided to become full-time game designers and expanded our business by starting up Mindmade Games, which is the name we will use when creating fun games that everyone can play. About a year ago we ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for our political party game Debatable.
Elin is a former restaurant manager who knows how to run a business and Magnus has previously worked as a film editor and graphic designer, but most importantly we both love playing games. Everything from fun simple card games to serious strategic board games. Some of our favorite games are Agricola, Puerto Rico, Pandemic and Twilight Imperium, to name a few.
The three other members of the team for Fix the World are:
EJ Dela Cruz - A really talented illustrator responsible for all the artwork in the game.
Carolyn Comer - Carolyn is our fun-loving friend from Texas who will help us out with promoting the game in the US.
Karin Kohlmeier - Our trusty American editor / proofreader who makes sure all the text in the game is typo-free and grammatically correct.

Risks and challenges
This is the seventh project we bring to Kickstarter and by now we can actually say that we know what we are doing!
Of course every new project will have new challenges, but we feel we have enough experience to overcome whatever challenges this project has in store for us. We know what we need to do, who to work with, and some of the many pitfalls to avoid. Unless there is some type of natural disaster or similar, you will get your game(s)!
Finally, don’t hesitate to ask any questions you want about our campaign and we’ll reply as quickly as we can.
Thank you for reading all the way here!
