About

 Supreme Leader is a 5 to 10 player game of social manipulation and political persuasion. Players will take on the role of various leaders throughout history and with the use of card play, variable player powers, and their very own rhetoric will vote players into the United Nations. Round after round one player will join the UN until only two leaders remain. They must then appeal to the UN, and the UN players vote for who they wish to crown Supreme Leader. 

Supreme Leader focuses on player agency. You choose your allies and who you want to be in your voting bloc. You decide what cards you want to buy and what rival leaders you wish to vote against. You must be careful who you go against and how you make your enemies. Event Cards will come up that challenge the active players not in the UN and variable player powers mean each leader has their own strength and their own unique power. 

You decide what it will take for you to become Supreme Leader. 



Political Agendas are secret objectives that players are able to draw and purchase in-game. They are used two ways. They can be scored / redeemed in-game for rewards such as money or voting twice in the future. They can also be used in the end-game variant where they are scored as Victory Points to decide the final decision. This gives players who love Supreme Leader but are not a fan of the endgame voting another variant winning condition. 

The War Pack introduces new leaders, Strategy cards, and Event cards. Each pack will include 5 Leaders, 15 Strategy Cards, and 5 Event Cards. The Leaders in the first War Pack will be Abraham Lincoln, Alexander the Great, Mao Tse Tung, Thomas Sankara, and Saddam.


A bigger box to keep all your Supreme Leader content neatly organized in a single place. We know the box last time around was a little small so that's why we're releasing this one for free to all Kickstarter Backers. 

This box will leave room for future expansions and will allow fans to organize their cards by Leaders, Strategy Cards, and Event Cards along with any future categories added to the game. 

Note: We do plan to revise the rulebook and re-print some cards. Everything that is revised and reworded will be included inside the Collector's Box. Also, all Stretch Goal content with the exception of the War Packs will be put inside the Collector's Box.

 Leaders: Abraham Lincoln, Mao, Alexander the Great, Saddam, and Thomas Sankara.



 All unlocked Stretch Goals will be inside the Collector's Box. The first five leaders at the $8,000 Stretch Goal are King Leonidas, Syngman Rhee, the Rani of Jhansi, Kim Il Sung, and Ronald Reagan.  




"This game made me an Anarchist" 

- David Callahan, Political Science Graduate at the University of Central Florida.


"Supreme Leader is the most engaging, competitive, and FUN game money can buy! I got this for my family and we love to play it at our family game nights. Literally, I had my mom playing as Stalin and my sister who was playing as FDR deciding which enemy they wanted to crush! Can't get that experience anywhere else." 

- Sarah Kelley, first campaign backer for Supreme Leader."


"Supreme Leader is one of those games that comes around once every hundred years that honestly has seen more table life than my tableware. One of the best party games around it expertly places you in a situation where your close friends and loved ones could be your sworn enemy by the draw of a card. It’s like if you took the big historical figures of our world and put them in Survivor. Systematically voting your opponents out by either forming alliances, betraying your allies, manipulating the table, or being two steps ahead of your opponents."

- Alex Ourique 


"Supreme Leader was a pleasant surprise! It relies heavily on who you play with, but with the right group this game really shines."

"The political intrigue and alliances that can fall apart within seconds is a thrilling experience, with a player (and sometimes more than 1) getting eliminated every round can make for a fairly quick game. However! Being eliminated and becoming apart of the “United Nations” is easily just as fun as being in the game. You can easily make an “active” player your puppet and bend them to your will or they risk being eliminated by the very powerful UN."

- Danny Rowe



 Note: We changed the $150 tier to $100. Whatever is listed in the campaign rewards on the right side is most accurate :) 


  • If five people dress up as Teddy Roosevelt and tag @cardculturegames and include the Kickstarter link in their social media post, we'll add Teddy Roosevelt into the game. 
  • If this post gets to 50 shares, we'll add Hannibal to the game. 
  • If this post gets to 50 retweets, we'll add William Wallace.

We'll add more too as the campaign goes on :)

Shipping will be charged after the campaign ends in the pledge manager. Shipping prices will change based on Stretch Goals unlocked. However, we promise to make shipping as cheap as possible. This will be our first campaign with lots of extra content. 

Countries Available - United States, Canada, European Union 

Shipping inside the United States - 7

Shipping to Canada - 10

Shipping to the European Union - 15

Important Note: Depending upon how successful this campaign is, we do plan on mailing out the Base Game to backers early. We have the inventory and are able to get everyone's copy of the Base Game before the expansion stuff since that needs to be manufactured. Therefore, and it depends on how many backers we have, there will be two waves of shipping. :) 



 Our campaign is an incentive-based campaign. We learned a lot from our first campaign back in October. This time around we want real stretch goals that will give meaningful content into the Supreme Leader universe. We want to expand this game and add more mechanics, content, and leaders. The people who participate in this campaign will save money instead of waiting for the game to go to retail. If we hit our goals, your pledge can give you x amount of stuff for free. 

Supreme Leader is a great game for people looking for larger - party games that can hold the attention of a casual gamer as well as the hobby gamer. I specifically designed this game as a way to allow my friends who don't play a lot of tabletop games to enjoy. While also keeping in mind my friends and people like me who love games like TI4, Arkham Horror, and other denser games and still have a good gaming experience. 

 Supreme Leader started in September 2017 when I took Russian Politics as a part of my political science program at the University of Central Florida. I learned about the death of Lenin and how Stalin was able to hustle and maneuver his way to the top in the Soviet Union. At the same time I was learning about how Napoleon was about to subvert the French Revolution, rise in power, and declare himself Emperor for Life. I have long been fascinated by politics, struggles for power, and how leaders retain power once their elected and put into their position

Supreme Leader started on index cards surrounded with the support of my friends during my senior year at the University of Central Florida. It became such a hit that people told me I should try and make this a "real thing" and a little over a year later, we launched our first Kickstarter for Supreme Leader. We funded in the first two weeks and it was the happiest day of my life. I was so proud of the product we made and the following we created. Thanks to the support of my family, my friends, and the Kickstarter community, Supreme Leader went from being a dream of ours to being a reality. Now, we're back to make this game even better with more impactful content.

NOTE: I also want to note like I did in the last campaign that we do not endorse the terrible crimes and brutal actions employed by some of these leaders. We want to create a unique political simulation card game. If a leader makes someone uncomfortable, don't play with it! We also allow players to mulligan their leader draw so they aren't stuck playing with someone they don't want to play as. We strongly believe in keeping this game authentic, all leaders are on the table to be added. I don't believe it's fair for us to pick and choose. Instead, we are just trying to make an authentic experience. I hope you support and understand this decision! May You Rule Supreme!

Risks and challenges

This is our second campaign and we have learned a lot since our first campaign. This time around we plan to be as transparent about the entire process just as we were last time. We have great partnerships with the Indie Game Alliance, QuarterMaster Logistics, Meijia / Brilliant, and we believe this campaign will be have it's issues just as the last one did, but we believe we will overcome! Let's make this another great campaign.

No copies of Supreme Leader will be sold at conventions until fulfillment has been completed. Ya'll will have brought this project to life and deserve to get the content first.
