Run a Campaign, Travel the Country and Win an Election When You Play Swing Vote
Online PR News – 28-August-2020 – Tempe, AZ – 2020 is an undeniably stressful and tense year. A pandemic. Unprecedented unemployment. Racial tensions. Not to mention an election coming up in a few months. Sometimes you just want to take hold of the political landscape and bend it to your liking.
Today, Failed Mutiny, a Tempe-based brand, gives you that opportunity. The brand is launching a Kickstarter Campaign for their first tabletop game called Swing Vote. In Swing Vote, you control a candidate, travel the country, hold rallies, buy ads, make shady deals, and do much, much more as you try to win the election.
Brett Boston, founder of Failed Mutiny said, “Swing Vote is a fun escape from the anxieties of politics and life. And it’s a great way to run a political campaign without being hated by half the country.”
Swing Vote was originally going to be a mass-produced board game priced at $50,, but COVID-19 made Failed Mutiny reconsider that. Seeing millions of people lose their jobs while millions more were stuck at home inspired the company to redesign Swing Vote so people could download a PDF and print the game at home.
Boston went on to say, “We dropped the price from $50 to $10. Our goal was to lower the cost as much as possible without disrupting the quality of the game. It does require some assembly, but so does everything from IKEA, and they’re terrific! Plus, our product won’t tip over on you.”
Swing Vote’s Kickstarter campaign lasts for four weeks and also includes postcards, pins, and t-shirts. Rewards range from $10 (game only) to $50 (all items) depending on which products you want to purchase.
20% of the game’s proceeds will be donated to the Tempe chapter of My Brother’s Keeper, an initiative launched by President Obama to addresses persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color.
