Drinkill
Drinkill is an extreme board drinking game that will put your drinking capabilities to the test.
It will also probably make you do some REALLY stupid shit along the way.
Drinkill will take up to 10 players and make them battle for one simple objective - being the first to reach the end of the board. Once you get to the “Vomit Here” space, everyone else loses and the game is over. Sounds easy? Think again.
Drinkill will put the player to a bitter fight while using Items, Challenges, & STD cards, and will make every game a night you'll surely remember, and a day you'd rather forget!

QE
It's 2008, and the economy is falling apart. You can save it by PRINTING MONEY to bail out companies.

You'll bid for these companies against your fellow players.

Since you represent the central bank of one of the most powerful countries in the world, there is no limit to what you can bid. You will literally have a dry erase marker and can write ANY number you want.

Buy as many companies as you can to collect the most victory points.

BUT don't be the player who spent the most money total during the game. If you do that, you lose.

Will you bid 90, or 90 billion?

The Kickstarter ends TODAY. Just $34. Free US Shipping.
