About

 Wake Up Sheeple is a conspiracy theorist's card game about finding the truth.  The game has players take the role of the General Public and the Mainstream Media. Each Mainstream Media player must use their own Subject and Motive cards to tell the General Public what actually happened during an event drawn from the Event deck.  

This game is not simply a fill in the blank game.  We encourage players to craft their own insane truth about what happened at the Event the General Public asks about.  

In Wake Up Sheeple, one player is the General Public while the rest are individual Mainstream Media outlets.  

The General Public player will draw two cards from the Event deck, and choose one to use.  Event cards are events from history, objects surrounded by conspiracy, or ideas that have long been questioned.  We've worked hard to make sure that every card in the Event deck has been questioned at some point.  

The General Public then asks the individual Mainstream Media players a question about who or what created/stopped/started/destroyed the Event.  The individual Mainstream Media players then look at their own set five Subject and five Motive cards and choose one of each to tell the General Public what really happened.  

Mainstream Media players then take turns telling the General Public what actually happened using their own chosen Subject and Motive Card.  Did John Wick cause the Chernobyl incident to impress a girl at the bar?  Did God assassinate JFK to catch a predator?  Did the moon landing actually NEVER happen, but was faked by Darth Vader so he wouldn't have to go to work on Monday?  

That's for the General Public to decide.  Once they've chosen which Mainstream Media outlet to believe, that outlet is awarded the Event card to indicate a point.   Then, the player to the left of the General Public is the new General Public.  Once again, we encourage players to tighten their tinfoil hats and own their story.  You want to become the number one media outlet.  

You'll always believe what you want to believe.  The truth is always revealed... or invented.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is that we're all new at this. We're three working stiffs with regular jobs and we did this in our free time. We've spent many weekends living in fear of losing our IP, of manufacturing woes, of tariffs, and of being failures at this whole making a board game thing. Wake Up Sheeple is our first game, and things can/will only get better from here.

Despite these challenges, we're ready to meet our goals. If funded, we will start the manufacturing and fulfillment process immediately. We will do right by our backers and work tirelessly to get Wake Up Sheeple into your hands. We will maintain contact with our backers through newsletters every single step of the way.
