I created Culture Wars: the angering to give players a fun way to call out the xenophobia and fear that conservatives resort to whenever they feel anxious about societal change. The game comically reflects how immigration, racial/gender equality, or even the mere presence of LGBT people will send them into hilarious pearl-clutching hysterics! Surprisingly, playtesters enjoyed being the conservative even more than being the liberal - it's fun to be the bad guy!

The game itself is complete, so we can start boxing them up and sending them out as soon as funding is done!



Reward: Print and Play PDF of the game

If you can back us at the $5 level, we'll send you a download link to a "print and play" PDF of the game. It will include all the cards and the instructions.

Reward: Get a personalized game card!

If you can back us at the $120 level, we'll reach out to you so that we can understand your goals, abilities, and what makes you special. We'll take these qualities, (and an image of you) and create a personalized card that will come with your copy of the game. (You'll get two - one to add to your copy of the game, and the other for display and bragging!)

Reward: Become a LITERAL part of the game!

If you can back us at the $200 level, we will make you a part of the game! It's like the $120 level reward, but your card will be a permanent part of the game! After the campaign, we will reach out to you so that we can understand your goals, abilities, and what makes you special. We'll take these qualities, (and an image of you) and create a card that will be in every published game we ship! Your name will not be used, of course - only the cartoon image of your face. (You will also get an extra copy of this card for display and bragging.)

How does the game work?

It's for 2-4 players, and takes about 20 minutes. It's similar to some "creature-combat" games, but is simpler, and has new and innovative concepts not seen in other games! The object is to get your opponents' credibility to zero by using character cards to attack and defend. Action cards and movement cards can affect characters in various ways, creating advantages and disadvantages for players. Because everything you do has a cost, you will need to be strategic about how you allocate your political support. Do you maintain your support for the #MeToo movement, or do you push for more education as a force for change? 

Risks and challenges

This game has already been designed, built, and thoroughly play-tested. We've used a card printing company to create our prototypes, and will use that same company for a print run if funding is successful. Our artist is ready to create images and caricatures of people who support us at certain funding levels. Our risks at this point are pretty minimal - we've done our homework, and are ready to go!

Our biggest challenge will be to manually fulfill the orders that come in, since we'll be doing all that work ourselves, and have no idea how many we'll need to box up and ship. However, we've set aside plenty of space in our garage should we be fortunate enough, with your help, to face that difficulty!
