Thrown Under the Bus (the game): The lighthearted deck-building game of office politics for 2-6 players taking 30-60 minutes to decide the next Sr VP. Thrown Under the Bus hits a delicate balance between easy-to-learn rules making it accessible to non-gamers with unique mechanics and advanced strategies that will keep experienced gamers engaged, all the while creating a fun thematic experience. The game keeps players entertained with cringeworthy buzzwords and all-too-familiar office tropes while they steal credit for coworkers’ hard work in an attempt to advance up the corporate ladder.

Don’t let the cutthroat theme fool you, Thrown Under the Bus is a cathartic release at the end of a long week of dealing with your coworkers’ quirks while protecting your station at work. So grab a cup of coffee, put on your power suit, and get ready to be Thrown Under the Bus…


The Conference Room is the game’s center board where the Associates (Players) meet every Friday to review what happened during the week (round). Changes in Associate status is tracked by the seats around the table. First player to reach Sr. VP status wins. 

The Thrown Under the Bus cards are filled with all-too-familiar office tropes, buzzwords, and classic awkward office situations. Not Invited to Lunch, Burnt Popcorn, Competing Job Offer, Lunch with the Boss, Drank the Last of the Coffee, Shift Blame, Steal Credit, Buzzword Bingo, and so many more classics.
