About

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!

Video Review:


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"

More reviews to come over the course of the campaign!

We endeavor to provide the best shipping solution possible, and will be working with Amazon fulfillment to distribute the game in the US and Ideaspatcher for European and Worldwide fulfillment. We will also send the game from within the EU, so we will worry about VAT so you don't have to!

These are the zones for Ideaspatcher fulfillment. Cost of final fulfillment (not counting the charges to get it to Ideaspatcher) below!

Congratulations for making it to the end of our campaign! As a reward, here is a blooper video of us messing up while recording!

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!
