Launching on Kickstarter today: Trump Trumps!

Gallery snapshot. View gallery of Launching on Kickstarter today: Trump Trumps!

You may well wonder where's our Tax Avoidance Game? Where's our Brexit Game? Where's our Refugee Game? Well, in truth, we got a little distracted. First with children's books, then with strange game festivals in Paris and most recently with trying to design a single-player game with no components. All true.

But then out of nowhere: Trump Trumps!. This is actually a silly thing we had knocking around for a while, predictably filed in the "that's nice, dear" bin. But then one playtest, we added Donald Trump masks and... wow, think David Lynch directing Monty Python. Then at least double the amount of horror you're imagining. Suddenly we had to try and get it made.

Like 'Cards Against Humanity', but rather than giving players permission to be hideously bigoted, we just give players permission to be Donald Trump

As you can imagine, Trump Trumps! doesn't vary much from the traditional 'Top Trump' model. Each card has a Donald Trump quote, rated on things like "Racism", "Plain Lies", "Misogyny" etc. And that's a good thing, because there's plenty of mileage to be got from wearing a freakish Donald Trump mask and trading hateful, bigoted, whacked-out, border-line fascist quotations. Strangely, taking a cartoon character politician and making them even more cartoonish has the result of making his words even more disturbing.

The twist in Trump Trumps! is that when there's a tie, the players involved in the tie resolve it by taking it in turns to offer supporting statements and arguments in favour of the quotation on their card. The first to hesitate, crack, laugh or otherwise deliver anything less than Trump-level convinction loses the tie. And it's at this point where you realise just how disgustingly objectionable this soon-to-be-the-most-powerful-man-in-the-world can be. Good luck out-trumping Trump; few have the stomach for it.

Please help us spread the word and let's get this hideous product out there in the hope that people will recognise and wake up to the horror that is waiting for them just around the next political corner.

It's live now! Back Trump Trumps! for as little as £10
