Terrible Candidates card game – Shout-Out!

You know we love our Aussie designers / projects here at Gameapalooza, so here’s a shout out to a little Aussie project. Terrible Candidates comes to us from Half Monster Games and it’s presently up for Australian Game of the Year.

Terrible Candidates is a game for 3-8 players that sees you trying to pick the least terrible policy option to argue against friends. It smells of Trumpian politics, which, let’s face it, is good for a laugh.
