About

Remember way back when, in January 2016, when a group of self-styled freedom fighters bravely commandeered a wildlife refuge in Oregon?

Don’t recall? Here’s a recap: Led by rancher Ammon Bundy, who had a beef against the federal government, these gun-toting “militiamen” moved in and vowed to stay until all their demands were met. These self-reliant men then made the mistake of asking the internet to send them supplies like snacks, energy drinks and beef jerky. Let’s just say it didn’t go well.

Instead of supplies, the always helpful internet sent boxes of sex toys. YouTube video (probably NSFW).

And that made me wonder…how did the militiamen divvy up the dildos? First come, first serve? Did the higher ranking members get the first pick? Did they jerk the toys from a bag at random?

Wonder no more! With Dildos & Militiamen, players match dildos to militiamen in a freedom-loving Old Maid variant!

Dildos & Militiamen (D&M) is a variant on the classic game of Old Maid created by Warning Label LLC co-founder Matt Heerdt and web comic illustrator extraordinaire Jason Williams.

The deck contains 53 cards consisting of 48 cards split between two suits (red and blue), Ol’ Ammon (the Old Maid) and four unique cards that add a twist to the standard Old Maid ruleset.

D&M is played exactly like classic Old Maid: players are dealt cards and attempt to make pairs of cards (blue to blue and red to red, for example) until one player is left with Ol’ Ammon. The player with the most pairs wins!

Where we add a twist is with four unique cards: Snacks, Thanks Obama, Kudatah and Don’t Tread on Me. Each card has a special rule that takes effect when the card is played.

D&M is done! It’s ready to be put on sale as a print-on-demand product through DriveThruCards. No matter what happens with our Kickstarter project, this game will be released for sale.

However, we really want to add more unique art to the cards, and that’s where you come in. Right now, the same militiamen and dildo art is repeated on both the blue and red decks and we really want the red deck to have its own set of art. When this project funds at $1,000, we’ll be able to do that!

If you just want a copy of the game, that’s awesome! Please support us at that level. But if you want a copy AND want to come up with your own card design, we have you covered and would LOVE to see what other folks come up with!

Like I said above, the game is done and will be released no matter what. But we have a burning desire to make this game even better, and that means additional art.

We're ready to go!
We're ready to go!

Are there stretch goals? As far as we're concerned, the game is done. New art will make a huge impact to the game's presentation, but adding new cards to the core game is not something I want to do.

So, if we do manage to triple our goal, we'll work on a Dildos & Militiamen expansion pack. Figuring out what it will contain or even the name (D&M: Pounding Fathers?) will be a project for another time. Right now, let's get Dildos & Militiamen funded and new art made!

Risks and challenges

The bulk of the work for Dildos & Militia has already been completed, production samples have been ordered and approve and the page at DriveThruCards has set up, meaning there are very few risks or obstacles to getting this project done.

The largest issue would be the time needed for Jason to make all the new illustrations once the project wraps up. Once those are done, DriveThruCards says it would take up to 6 weeks for the decks to be printed and shipped, though in my experience, it usually takes only 2-3 weeks.
