Attention, nerds: This is the party game for you.
“Pitch Deck” is kind of like “Cards Against Humanity” for the startup scene — it takes something terrible (like enduring a bad business pitch or institutional racism) and turns it into something hilarious.
Players combine a “Company Card” on the table (like “Tinder for…”) with a “Pitch Card” from their hands (like “Lonely confused men”) and then everyone makes a quick pitch for their startup. One person plays the investor and decides which company everyone will secretly fund for the round. The person who pitched the most valuable company and the investor who put the most money in that company both win.
Pitch Deck, developed by game makers Fred Benenson and Alex Hague, has already surpassed its $20,000 fundraising goal on Kickstarter.
“Comedy is one of the best ways to critically question our assumptions about the world,” says the Kickstarter. “And even though Pitch Deck is just a goofy card game, it helps explore some of the biases and absurdities inherent in technology and business.”
The game is expected to ship in June of this year.
