Dead Theorists: A Card Game for Disillusioned Philosophers
Regular price $ 25.00
Published by Microcosm! A Card Game for Disillusioned Philosophers and Aspiring Academics In this turn-based card game, the ghosts of Simone De Beauvoir, W.E.B. Du Bois, Michel Foucault, & Karl Marx have returned from beyond the grave to complete a bit of unfinished business. Become the specter of one of these four great (but deceased) thinkers as you seek to recruit your last great protégé from the ranks of students on one college campus. But you’ve encountered two challenges you didn’t expect: First, the forces of neoliberalism have been hard at work dismantling the education system. It will be tough to train your final pupil from within today’s profit-oriented university. Second, you’ve got competition! Other spirits have also awoken and they’re dead set on halting your progress and advancing their own ghostly agendas. Can you train your protégé to complete your unfinished business—and be the first one to do it? 2-4 players, 30-45 mins per game. Includes 81 cards and rules.
