About

You wrote your resume, you nailed the interview and now you’re a manager at your new company. There’s just one thing, the only way to earn your seniority is by trading for it; with office supplies. You’ll need to recruit a team and search through desks on your break to find the supplies you need. Trade the supplies in the break room to the department requesting them and try not to break any drawers in the process. You have one work week to get your seniority and you’ll need to get it by any means necessary or you're fired!

Your only objective is to end the work week with the most Seniority Points. You do this by finding and trading in office supplies.

 

 

 

Pete has been at Company Corporation Inc. for almost 30 years. He has seen things that would make the toughest of managers quake in their boots. He doesn’t like you or the horse your rode in on and is annoyed by all your questions. Pete had an intern once who put cream in his coffee, nobody has heard from the intern since. When not at work, Pete builds model war planes and reads the newspaper.  

This grizzled veteran is a no nonsense manager who will take the paperclips by force if necessary.

 Janet has been at Company Corporation Inc. for 15 years. She is an avid lover of cats and everything feline. She has a peculiar smell to her that you will hear about at length from her subordinates. Janet has an odd fascination with markers and will try to convert you with an in-depth description of why. At home… well no one is really sure what she does at home.  

This odd duck will collect what she can but really, really, likes markers.

 Mark has been at Company Corporation Inc. for 1 whole year. He is a self-proclaimed artist and will tell you about his 2 art electives he took at business school every chance he gets. His office is decorated with what he says is “true art” but is clearly hipster pop prints from the local craft store. In his free time, Mark frequents the local artisan coffee shops with his laptop.  

This creative rookie will find pencils and tell you why they are beautiful.

 Emily has been at Company Corporation Inc. for 5-ish years. She can generally be found sulking in the shadows with a look of disdain on her face. When she looks at you, her piercing gaze will rip your soul from your body and make you rethink your life choices. She seems to tolerate emo music and Halloween. When not at work Emily can be found taking photos at abandoned lunatic asylums.  

This lady of darkness seems to enjoy the sharp edges of staples.

 Armin has been at Company Corporation Inc. for 8 years. He is a very friendly, highly intelligent person and will help wherever he can. Sometimes you will hear an oddly sarcastic comment from him. When asked about it, his accent will thicken and he will say “English is my second language”. When at home, Armin enjoys time with his family and walking his toy poodle.  

This sarcastic rogue finds pencils at an astounding rate.

 Lisa has been at Company Corporation Inc. for exactly 3 years. She has a Master’s Degree in Business and 2 Bachelor’s Degrees, yet she still requires assistance with the copier. She is so good at delegating duties it’s as if she doesn’t work at all. Most of the time Lisa can be found in the cafeteria with a large group of slack-jawed admirers, talking about her workout routine. After hours, Lisa can be found enjoying a free drink at the martini bar.

This master delegator will have someone find tape for her.

 Jonathan has been at Company Corporation Inc. for over 10 years. He is a huge fan of Sci-fi TV shows and collecting vintage lunch boxes. If prompted, he will explain to you why the latest space movie is not accurate and how they should have done it. He once built a scale replica of the office out of toothpicks and sugar packets. In his free time, Jonathan goes to the local theatre to watch classic monster movie marathons.  

This toothpick architect needs a lot of markers for his blueprints.

 Jack has been at Company Corporation Inc. for 37 years. During his first year at the company he met one of the founders at the company picnic. That’s when they use to have picnics, they don’t do that anymore. He can be found most days at the coffee cart telling anyone who will listen about how the company use to give out bonuses. At home Jack enjoys wood working, mowing his lawn and tending his garden.  

This company OG loves tape and will grab as many as he can.

 You'll have to search your coworker's desks for the supplies you need.

 

 

Each player has a card and tracking cubes to keep track of their supplies.

 

 

 Now that you have the supplies, you'll need to trade them in for seniority!

 

 You can recruit your fellow employees to help you find those supplies.

 

 

 

                                       

 

   

 

Due to the fact that this is our first game we have made the decision to keep this campaign limited to North America (US and Canada) only. We want to make sure that we deliver exactly what we promise and are trying to mitigate any issues.

Once we have successfully delivered on this campaign we will look at International availability of this and future games we make.

Shipping to the US and Canada is included in the pledge amount. 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Though this is our first board game we have experience in delivering products and working with manufacturers. We understand that this a complicated process and prone to any number of challenges. We have taken a number of steps in hopes of making this a smooth project:

1. The pre-production is almost complete. The artwork for the game is roughly 95% complete. We anticipate any changes that might need to be done will be small.

2. We will be working with Panda Game Manufacturing to build this game. They are a well known and respected company and we have been in frequent communication with their team on this project.

3. We have several plans for fulfillment depending on the size of the campaign. We have been in contact with Ship Naked and will be using them for our professional fulfillment if the campaign dictates.

That being said there may be set backs, delays or mistakes as these things happen. We will be in constant contact with our backers providing updates and information.

We will be present during the campaign to answer your questions and concerns. We will be dedicated to communication and transparency with this process.

Thank you for your time and feedback!
