Office Trading Card Game

Posted 25 January 2011 - 03:41 AM

Hey I just got this awesome idea!

I wana make this Office trading card game, maybe something similiar to pokemon or magic the gathering cards. Then to to increase you attack points "productivity" you can boost yourself up with "brown nose cards" and the way you get brown nose cards is by, for instance, using an "action" card on the boss, like the "gift" card, or the "crawling up the ass" card.

Your apponent can also bring down your "productivity" by using a "your late for work" card on you.. Ho ohhh...

Haha, what you think of that? Any other ideas?

Ugh this is killing me. I have a game that sounds like this I bought seven or eight years ago. Fun game.... I'll see if it's still in my closet.

Tangential links:

KenzerCo (woot hackmaster!) Tech Support

Quote

A FAST-PACED, EXCITING GAME FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

The goal of the Tech Support card game is simple - be the first person to play the Guru card. Of course, getting there is not quite so easy...

The theme of the Tech Support card game is based around the experience of calling a technical support hotline. On your turn, you essentially take on the role of a caller, while the other players are the tech support system itself!

On your turn, you draw a card from the deck and place it in your hand. Then you play a card - but not from your own hand! Now, don't get scared - this is where the strategy begins.

Since the object of the game is to play the Guru card, but you can only play cards from your choice of another player's hand (unless the card you just played tells you otherwise), you have to use both strategy and bluff to get the Guru. Use special cards to look at other players' hands, to make one or more cards change hands, and so on! Make sure you know who's got the Guru, and try to draw and play it! But be careful - don't let the other players know that you know...

What trickery is this you ask? It is not trickery... it is Tech Support!

Tech Support is a card game for 3-6 players, ages 13+. Average playing time: 20 min.

I found it! Burn Rate

Quote

What is Burn Rate?

1. The rate at which a new company spends its venture capital before generating positive cash flow from operations. In other words, it's a measure of negative cash flow.


Nothing beats a game from a jaded laid off dot-com employee. (well ex-employee)

Quote

Burn Rate is the brainchild of Rich Koehler, a former dot-com employee. A self-professed game fanatic, Koehler developed the game in the winter of 2001 when he found himself one of the many casualties of Seattle-area start-ups at the height of dot-bomb busts.

Thank you 2002.
