I love a good debate. Let’s have a deep discussion about what makes a good tabletop game. Or maybe talk about different recipes and what techniques make the best cookies. Or we can discuss the best wood to use when smoking pork shoulder. Or we can talk about whether we should eliminate brain-melting torture devices because they pose a threat to the entire galactic population.
Ok, so the first three you can have whenever. The last one is mostly going to come up in Galactic Debate, a new party card game that’s up on Kickstarter (though knowing my friends, we might just start talking about that sort of thing just because).
In the game, players take on the role of a delegate for an alien species. You’re your race’s candidate for the next President of the Galaxy and you want everyone’s vote. Candidates also can’t lie (something I wish we really had now). So everything you say will be true in the game (meaning whatever you make up is now entirely correct and true, no matter how outlandish). Players are given a topic to debate and have 30 seconds to be either for or against it. Two players debate, and then the rest vote for who had a better argument, giving that player the point. The player with the most points at the end of the game is the new President of the Galaxy.
The campaign is doing well, already passing their funding goal with still 12 days left to get in on the action.
