Billionaire Banshee is a quick and easy game to play. Each turn one player grabs both a Perk and a Quirk card. This combination of cards represents a potential lover that player could spend the rest of their life with. Everyone then puts either a Date or Deny voting card face down, to represent what choice they think their friend will make. Individually each player flips their voting card and explains why they believe this is the perfect, or worst match for their friend. In the end, the player whose turn it is reveals how they voted, and why. Everyone that guessed correctly gains a point.
This is a conversation building card game. You'll be shocked by how your friends answer. How could someone be okay with dating someone wanted by the cartel, but have a problem with dating an erotic baker? Why would someone deny a person who's house has a whole floor that's a ball pit, but date a lover with the Midas touch? Billionaire Banshee is a game that's meant to reveal our true selves to friends and strangers, to bring us closer, make us laugh, and strike away the fear of our hidden wants. It's also a lot of fun, but don't take my word for it!
Now that you know people loved the first game, what does the expansion include?
Design/Art: Steven "Razlo" Bailey
Creator and artist for the original Billionaire Banshee, but a lot has been learned since then, so this expansion should look even better than the original and play just as fun.
Publishing/Manufacturing: Breaking Games/Ad Magic
When I printed the first Billionaire Banshee, I used Ad Magic. They had just started a publishing arm and I loved working with them, so Billionaire Banshee joined their publishing program shortly after the Kickstarter rewards went out. Since they know my wants and this game even better than the first spin around, this expansion should be easy for them.

THAT'S RIGHT! We're making a limited run of physical, real, authentic REGION FREE NES game cartridges of Billionaire Banshee.. This isn't some USB drive inside a cart with pictures you put on your computer. This isn't some fake collectible. This is a real NES version of Billionaire Banshee on a cartridge that you can play on a real NES!
The NES game is a greatest hits of sorts, it includes some of the best cards from the main game, the Australia pack, the Sexy pack and the expansion. The game uses 1 controller with turn based pass and play, so unlike many NES multiplayer games, far more than 2 people can play at once.
- 2-8 player single controller pass and play
- Change length of play session by time, or by round
- Turn off trait categories you don't want for a party (Sexy, Reality, Fantasy)
- Score kept by game, so you no longer have to stay sober enough to do it yourself
- Cute as hell cartridge that looks great even just being displayed
- Amazing quality voice samples (a true rarity on the NES)
- Extra single player mini-game
- Comes sealed in box with instruction manual
There aren't many good tabletop or party games on NES, even fewer adult orientated games, and even fewer of those that are good. If you like Billionaire Banshee and are a retro gamer, this is a MUST HAVE!

Risks and challenges
The first Billionaire Banshee Kickstarter went off without a hitch, except shipping got delayed by some port issues. It's always possible delays like that can happen when dealing with overseas factories and international shipping, but I've tried to have a realistic time frame.
This is my first time getting an 8-bit original Nintendo NES classic game manufactured. It could take longer than expected, but the game itself has been tested on an original NES and Retro Freak and does work great.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
