Comrades and Patriots (Canceled)
Comrades and Patriots pits you as leaders vying for control of the people. Challenge your friends to this game of Cold War mayhem!
Most Glorious Comrade and Most Incorruptible Patriot are the first two titles from This and That Games. You are a Communist or Democratic leader vying for the affections of the Proletariat or Voters, respectively. This is a draw one, play one style game, with variable player powers based on your chosen leader. The games are playable together or separately, for 2-12 players (and best with 3-8 players). Will a Communist or Democratic leader be victorious? Get Comrades and Patriots and find out!
In Comrades and Patriots, you are playing as Communist and Democratic leaders with unique abilities trying to get to 10 million Proletariat or Voters, respectively. Whichever Comrade or Patriot gets there first wins!
Rules and Print and Play available on our website: http://www.thisandthatgames.com/?page_id=4250
The game includes a 4 inch by 6 inch by 2 inch box, two tuckboxes, and two 54 card decks. This is all you need to play!
Players have a hand of cards, and each turn, players draw a card and play a card. There are Citizens, which count for points or have special abilities, which you play to the right of your leader card.
There are also actions, which affect the game in crazy ways!
The game lasts 10-30 minutes, and can be played between longer games, or a few times in a row. Those who have played the game once will almost certainly want to play again right away! That is our experience demoing the game locally and at large gaming Conventions, such as GenCon.
We have different reward levels for getting the game, sharing shipping costs, and even getting a custom leader card with your face on it!

Check out the fun reviewers have had with Comrades and Patriots!
The Bearded Meeple: "It's for ages 8+, but are 8 year olds really ready to choose sides in the Cold War? I know I was."
Meeple Mechanic: "10/10"
Guild Master Gaming: " The events create quick changes in the strength of a player’s base and can cause fortunes to shift dramatically. There is also a level of fun presented in the game to provide a lighter side. This led to some fun commentary around the table"
Board Game Batcave:
"As a child of the 80s, this theme appealed to me"
Runkle Plays Games:
"Play is easy and fast paced. Making for an over all fun quick game."

Risks and challenges
This is the first title from This and That Games. We are a new company, and that means we do not have as many contacts and relationships with distributors that more established companies do. We plan on fulfilling the game through Amazon in the US, and Ideaspatcher in Europe and worldwide, which will take some control away from us. It will be useful, however, as these companies have proven track records in fulfilling Kickstarter campaigns. We want to build our reputation, and will make sure any issues get resolved as quickly as possible!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
