|Not My President
Runs March 14, 2017 thru April 14
Goal – $5,000
You’re at an election-night party with some friends or family when the discussion turns to politics. Rather than the usual, snooty, liberal echo chamber that you never leave, you hear something… odd… the sound of a Trump Supporter in your midst. The goal of Not My President is to figure out who the secret Trump Supporters are among you, or, if you are the Trump supporter, to turn everyone else against each other!
Based off the popular game Mafia, Not My President is a high-energy, 3-12 player game of deception that lasts 5-10 minutes per round. Using your best poker face, diversionary tactics, and a lot of finger pointing, the goal of Not My President is to either find the Trump Supporters amongst you, or, if you are one, to keep yourself hidden through any means necessary. Lying, spreading chaos, and blaming others are highly encouraged tactics. The game begins when players randomly select and privately view a “role card,” dividing the party into two groups: Trump Supporters and Reasonable People. Players then close their eyes for the election night. During this phase, the free app guides you through the special abilities of your assigned roles. Players secretly swap cards, change identities, and cause more mayhem than a private email server. When everyone has taken their turn, players open their eyes, and the accusations begin. After 5-10 minutes, players vote for who they believe to be the most likely Trump Supporter. If they’re wrong, the Trump Supporters win. If they’re right, it’s probably fake news, and the Reasonable People win.
