Introducing It's Just A Theory: a unique conspiracy crafting card game using a fun story-telling game mechanic focused around, you've guess it - conspiracy theories.
Have you ever wondered how Hitler faked his death or why we haven't been back to the moon and how this relates to the growing industry of ''Big Oil''? Then It's Just A Theory is the game for you!!!
In this fast-paced, engaging game, players take on the role of conspiracy theorists and compete against each other to explain their theories about the world around them.
With over 200 cards in the game the possibilities for new random stories is virtually endless, an ideal party game for players who like comedy and story-telling.
Players work against each other to create a conspiracy theory, using ‘'Fact'’ cards that contain concepts or objects which can be used to form conspiracy theories. In a round, one player is the lead conspiracy theorist who will begin a theory using one of their ''Conspiracy'' cards. The lead conspiracy theorist then uses their pool of "Fact" cards to move the story in certain directions with the aim of allowing them to finish their theory by playing a ''Propaganda'' card. The more “Fact” cards they play in a chain the more points they score.
To do this they will have to compete against every other conspiracy theorist at the table, who wishes to highjack their theory and explain their own deluded ideas. Other players hijack a theory by trying to use their cards to interrupt and successfully challenge the theory.
The winner of a round is the player who plays their Propaganda card ending the theory. Points are scored by finishing theories and more points are awarded by playing more cards forming an uninterrupted chain.
The winner is the conspiracy theorist who has the most points at the end of the game. So don your tinfoil hat, open your third eye, ensure your subcutaneous xenoestrogen injection unit is charged and prepare to discover truths you did not know about the world, and remember:
