Badult gaming pioneer and creator of Cards Against Humanity, Max Temkin has returned to Kickstarter with his latest tabletop title, Secret Hitler.
Launched on November 23rd, the project secured 200 per cent of its crowdfunding goal of $54,450 in just 24 hours.
To date, Secret Hitler has raised $138,939 with 28 of the project still remaining.
Billed as a social deduction game for five to ten players, each charged with the task of finding and stopping the game’s Secret Hitler, game play is all about lying to and deceiving other players.
“This game is great. It takes all the fun of a giant social game like Werewolf or mafia and makes it faster, more fun and easier to make decisions,” said Elan Lee, creator of card game Exploding Kittens and champion of the new game.
“This has become the party game of choice at my house.”
Set in 1930s Germany, players are secretly divided into two teams – liberals and fascists. Nown only to each other, the Fascists coordinate to ‘sow distrust and install their cold-blooded leader.’
Meanwhile, the Liberals must find and stop the Secret Hitler before it’s too late.
If it all sounds a bi close to the bone, it’s positively tame compared to action cards featurd in Cards Against Humanity such as ‘Piece of shit Christmas cards with no money in them’ or ‘Swapping bodies with mom for a day’.
