In Galactic Debate players argue over randomized sci-fi themed topics by making up facts and pandering to the other alien races to win votes and become the next President of the Galaxy. There is no wrong way to debate because anything you say in this game is automatically true. If a player states that the galaxy is at war with evil space oysters, then that is the case for the rest of the game. As the debates go on, the players establish the galaxy and how it works, creating a unique experience every time you play. With over 1,500 combinations of cards and an infinite number of ways to argue the issues, the game is extremely replayable and you’ll never have the same debate twice.
Each player chooses a Race card and its associated Candidate card. Two candidate cards are randomly drawn to debate against each other.
Draw an Issue card. If there is a box labeled Matter, draw a blue Matter card to fill in the blank. If there is a box labeled Race, pick any of the races in play.
The first candidate will choose to argue Pro or Con on the issue, and the second candidate must argue the opposite. Each candidate gets 30 seconds to defend his or her stance, making up silly facts and countering arguments with make-believe statistics. Remember, anything you say in this game is true so you'll have cleverly invent your own facts to poke holes in your opponents' logic.
After each debate the voters flip their race cards to the “Pro” or “Con” side to vote for a candidate. Voters may choose the candidate who best appealed to their race's needs or whoever had the funniest or most creative response.
The winner of the debate scores 1 point for each vote. At the end the game, the player that won the most debates is elected President of the Galaxy.

Risks and challenges
This is our second Kickstarter project! We've learned much from our first campaign and have implemented many improvements for Galactic Debate.
Quality of Product: The game mechanics have been tested countless times at conventions, gaming events, and meetups. Rules and card text have been meticulously proofread, and the artwork is 100% complete. Once the campaign finishes, we will instantly give the manufacturer the green light to begin the process.
Production Time: Our previous game shipped 8 months after the project completed. We are confident that this next game will also deliver in that time frame or much sooner. The base game will be printed by Panda Game Manufacturing, a high quality and high volume manufacturer. For those that want the game ASAP, we are offering an early-shipping option. This version will be made in the U.S. by a company we have been working with for over 2 years. Those that pledged to receive a copy of Road to Infamy will be happy to know that the games are already in our possession and will begin shipping the day after the campaign ends.
We are passionate about this campaign and committed to working through any issues to ensure that all our backers' pledges are honored in a timely fashion. :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
