About

The Casual Party Game for Disgruntled Office Workers 

We all have those things that we want to say in the email chains at work.  From avoiding confrontation with coworkers, to avoiding responsibility with the boss, Per My Last Email lets you say what you really mean.  Using Passive Aggressive and Not-So-Passive Aggressive comments, your job as a player is to get as close to getting fired as you possibly can, without quite making it.  Sending 'emails' never felt so good.

Recommended for 4 or more players, Per My Last Email is a party game including mature content.   Easy to learn, fast to play, game length can take as little or as much time as you and your friends desire.  Play until the deck runs out, or play for a set amount of time.   

Game Play - Even the Interns could figure it out!

  • You start the game with each player drawing Reply Cards.   
  • One of the players is selected as the ‘Boss’, and draws an ‘Email Card’   
  • All of the other players who are not the ‘Boss’ secretly respond to the Email Card with one of their Reply Cards.
  • The ‘Boss’ then reads the Reply Cards and selects the best 'Reply' to assign the 'Email' card to.​
  • Players take turns as the ‘Boss’ until time is up or the deck is empty.
  • ​At the end of the game, the player who has collected the most Email Cards, and earned their freedom Wins!      

What's in the box?

240 Reply cards, including a mix of passive aggressive and not-so-passive aggressive responses, HR cards and excuses. 

60 Email Cards, that represent work or confrontation, played by the 'Boss" each turn.  

 A Word from Per My Last Email’s creators,                             

Brian Snyder and Mark Stogdill 

For the better part of 2 decades, we have both worked in the type of environment where work emails were frustrating, infuriating and draining.  We typed replies before deleting them and typing what we ultimately sent. The responses that we really wanted to send, being replaced by the sterile version that many of us have become accustomed to. Then, a thought occurred to us... what if we didn't have to filter those responses? Per My Last Email was born, taking the quiet mumbling of two business professionals and turning them into a sarcastic, passive aggressive art form. Over the course of the following months, the rules have been hashed out, the cards written and the laughter ensued. 

We didn't want to come to Kickstarter before we were all-but-ready for our production run. The cards have been written, re-written and written again and we think this game is great. We think that you will as well, and look forward to delivering copies out as soon as possible.   We have set the shipping for April of 2020, with the hopes that we can exceed those expectations.   Per My Last Email is a passion project, and a chance for us to spread a little bit of laughter.   It is our hope that groups of friends will be able to gather around the table, have a few drinks, catch up and use Per My Last Email as an avenue to share more than a few laughs.   Thank you for considering to pledge your support for this project, and we look very much forward to the opportunity to deliver Per My Last Email out into the world.     

The work game - That is NSFW

We call Per My Last Email an ‘adult’ party game for a reason.  Some of the cards are a bit colorful.  Ultimately we decided that you cannot possibly make a game of ‘the things you really want to say’ without telling your ‘coworkers’ where to go, where to stick it or what to do.  

We wanted to show a sample of these cards so you know what we are talking about.  If you really wanted to, you could remove these cards and the others like them in order to play with your mother, your church group or even the HR department.    

Stretch Goal

$18k - All core copies of Per My Last Email will be expanded to include another 80 Reply Cards and another 20 Email Cards.  That's a lot more cards to ensure the game can keep going, and give even more unique combinations of cards. 

We are limited in the number of stretch goals that we can offer, simply because we didn't want to produce the game if we couldn't use quality cardstock and materials.  We chose to limit the stretch goals to just one, expanding the card count of the core game.

"Per My Last Email brought a group of 8 work colleagues together (some of which have never played a game with us before) to have a laugh and a good old giggle for 30 minutes. If that isn’t worth checking out and picking up this game I don’t know what will."

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

Brain Sandwich is a relatively new company and Per My Last Email will be our first game launch on Kickstarter. While we will be tweaking and perfecting cards to craft a better experience throughout the campaign, game design is complete and our cards are all but complete. While we believe that we are well prepared for the challenges that manufacturing and fulfillment bring, there is potential risk that delivery will be delayed due to unpredictable factors.

By pledging, you agree that our responsibility to you is to ship your order as entered by you into the pledge management system and that you are ultimately responsible for incorrect shipping details.
