About

In Whataboutery: The Card Game, players avoid getting stuck with the criticism token at the end of each round. You start each round with a finite number of cards in your hand. You use the cards to alter play, steal credibility, or move the criticism token to another player. Use your cards wisely! Once a player is unable to move the criticism token to another player they lose the round and one credibility point.

To get down to brass tacks, this is a hell-for-leather, screw-your-opponents game loosely based on ad hominem debate tactics. It's an easy-to-learn game that involves outwitting your opponents but with a sprinkle of luck on top for a little bit of chaos. 

In an effort to speed up fulfillment, this campaign has no stretch goals.

All Kickstarter backers will receive our Kickstarter Exclusive version of Whataboutery that includes a custom metal CRITICISM token!

This is a game I've been developing for over 10 years. As most great pastime ideas begin, it all started as a constantly-evolving drinking game. A deck of cards would be altered to have the unfortunate players move a shot glass of Jägermeister* around the table. We called this game "Pass the Buck".

(*We cannot, in good conscience, recommend players of Whataboutery replace the CRITICISM token with a shot of Jägermeister. Perhaps a Canadian rye.)

Over the years, the game moved away from being a drinking game. For years we tested it, created a nail-biting endgame, and put in more calculated-risk elements. It was finally time to bring this thing to the next level. The only problem: Pass the Buck is already a game!

No problem. We re-created the game's theme and design after an old Soviet propaganda technique. The end result is Whataboutery: The Card Game!

We've had an amazing time making this game and Kickstarter campaign and we hope you enjoy!

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarter. This is not the first product I've brought to market. Thankfully this game's components aren't too difficult to produce and as of this campaign's launch everything is ready for production and distribution.

A potential issue that could delay fulfillment is a higher-than-expected backers number. I have scheduled a 1000x-2000x unit run with the manufacturer and am unsure how many additional units they'll be able to make while adhering to the holiday shipment timeline.

Of course, there's always other unforeseen problems that can arise. If there are any issues that affect fulfillment, backers will be notified immediately and the issue will be resolved as quickly as possible. Thank you for checking out my Kickstarter!
