Considering the current political climate, some people think that maybe just putting politicians into a pit, throwing in a couple boxes of knives, and making them all just figure it out with their fists would be a better way to run the country than what we’ve got now. Well, Presidential Knife Fight doesn’t exactly do that, but it does give you a chance to have all previous US Presidents duel it out for supremacy. The game’s up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, players are looking to collect 5 votes. They do this by having their President kill off other Presidents, survive turns, and by corrupting their rivals. Players begin with three Presidents in their hand, along with three Action cards. They pick one of their Presidents to start with and the game begins. On your turn, you get three actions. These can be drawing and/or playing a card, stabbing the President next to you, or using your Presidential Ability (each one is unique). If your President is killed, it’s added to your opponent’s Vote pile and you play a new one. Play continues around until someone gets 5 Votes and is declared the Ultimate President.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. It’s set to go for another 28 days.
