Hey there folks, it's Charlie Berens (host of the Manitowoc Minute) and Dane Schaefer (some other guy) here and we got something we want to tell you about real quick once! We've spent the last couple years working (and laughing) our butts off while making a brand new party game called Card Sale. It's inspired by what is obviously everyone's favorite pastime: yard sales! It's more fun than clogging your arteries at the local fair, which is why we're so excited to tell you about it!
Card Sale is a game of cut-throat capitalism, but in a funny, nobody has to claim bankruptcy sort of way... Players use cards to make the best gosh-darn product they can and try to avoid getting booted from the Card Sale by either souping it up with more features, or sabotaging the competition. Products get more and more amazing, absurd, and hilarious with every card. Players pitch their product, or try to knock the competition down a peg or two by arguing over the utility, value, and even the meaning, of the products and their features. After everyone has had a turn, the buyer eliminates their least favorite, and removes that item from the sale. Don't get your undies in a bundle, eliminated players get to keep playing, by helping a buddy, or crushing someone's hopes and dreams... kinda like what the Packers do to da Bears every season!
First, that's not a number.
Second, we love Card Sale because it is fun, hilarious, and absurd, and we love having nonsensical arguments with friends and family (so much more fun than the non-nonsensical ones your crazy uncle Steve always starts). It isn't just that, though, it's the way that it does those things that we think really sets it apart. Nobody is going to win just because they have the funniest punchline card. There isn't even a "funniest punchline card". Instead, players collaborate, building their own jokes, absurdities and arguments through play. Because of that, no two games are alike making it infinitely re-playable.
Ultimately, there are a ton of amazing games available and we think variety is the spice of life, but if you like the idea of arguing with your friends, family, or random strangers about whether a double-decker monster truck for a baby is way cooler than a magical machine gun from the pope's private collection, please help us make this game a reality. We think you'll love it as much as we do!
