This time Dr Finn Games has launched a special one week campaign on Kickstarter for Slush Fund 2.
Use your money and power to advance your political agenda in this quick and fun 2-player card game from the designer of Biblios.
The game is a 2-player revision of Slush Fund. While it has similar mechanics and ideas, there are important rule changes that make it quite a different game. In the game, players use money cards to bribe 5 different politicians in an effort to score Victory Points for having the highest bribes on politicians at game end. The politicians start with a base value of VPs, but these may change during the game.
On a turn, a player draws 3 cards from the deck, chooses 2 of them to play, and places 1 in the Slush Fund (a face-up pile of presently unused cards). If there are at least 3 cards in the Slush Fund, the player may choose to take 3 cards from the Slush Fund instead of drawing from the deck. In this case, however, the player can use all 3 cards. In addition to money cards, there are special cards, such as the Investigator, Journalist, Larcenist, and Accountant. Each of these provides a unique special power.
The project has already hit its pledge goal after 2 days. Besides getting the game, you will also get the kickstarter promo pack and a 3-month membership in Dr. Finn’s Kickstarter Club. Of course if the stretch goals are reached you will get those rewards too.
What do the promotional cards do? Each card provides a special power to be used once during the game. Each player is given one randomly at the start and the card stays secret until use. The three promo cards include:
- FBI – Prevent opponent from using Slush Fund for 1 turn
- Windfall – Draw 3 more cards, return 3 to the top of deck, and then take your turn
- Encryption – Place on a politician to prevent hacking
With only a couple of days to go – your time is running out for your Slush Fund!!
