JadedAid is a new card game for world-weary development workers to be the cynicism they want to see in the world. Our idea is simple: take the everyday frustrations of working for The Man and turn them into a prescription for fun!
JadedAid was crowdfunded on Kickstarter and contains 200 crowdsourced cards that can be played alone or used in combination with similarly formatted games such as Cards Against Humanity to make the fun last longer than Mugabe's rule.How to Play
The "Donor" player will read out a red Indicator Card posing a question and "Implementer" players will submit their white Outcomes Cards with potential answers. The Donor picks the winner they like the best, damn the evidence (or lack thereof). The winner then becomes the Donor for the next round. You win by amassing useless Indicator Cards, just like in real life!
You should always play with copious indigenous alcohol and really good friends... or whomever you can find in your village that speaks English.What They Say
We love good press coverage, especially if the donor is mentioned in the first paragraph. JadedAid is no different. Enjoy what our peers say about our efforts:
- "This card game will end poverty.. by making fun of aid." - Humanosphere
- "Have you played the party game for horrible people, Cards Against Humanity? It's like that - but for humanitarians." - The Guardian
- "Judging from JadedAid's enthusiastic reception among development practitioners, the game's criticism has certainly hit a nerve." - Foreign Policy
- "Humanitarian and development practitioners have often treated their world weariness with a combination of alcohol, cynicism or despair. What if I told you there was a card game for that?" - WhyDev
Features & Highlights
- Contains 200 cards (34 Question Cards, 165 Answer Cards, 1 Rules Card) crowdsourced from actual aid workers. Blame subcontractors for any errors.
- Professionally printed on high quality cardstock and mixes in perfectly with Cards Against Humanity to add spice to your next TDY.
- Incorporates cross-cutting themes like paternalism, chauvinism, and elitism to illuminate the inherent discrimination and dissonance in international development.
- Game should be played with copious indigenous alcohol and really good friends. Best if at least one donor is marginalized afterwards.
- Original card deck featured in the Kickstarter campaign. No humanitarians were harmed in the production of these cards.
