(Preorder) Carked-It! The Hilarious Card Game of Life, Death and Beyond
Note: this is a preorder for a game currently running a campaign on Kickstarter, for folks that live in regions that we cannot send to for this current crowdfunding effort. These copies will be sent later, but due to popular demand we've been asked to have a facility to send the games elsewhere in the world.
Carked-It! Is a new, tabletop game brought to you by The Ageing Revolution that takes a humorous angle to our inevitable end.
It aims to make having conversations about dying and death something to enjoy, have fun with, and even have a giggle or belly laugh over
Play with a group of 3-6 friends and choose what you want to happen before and after your death from a selection of ridiculous proposals. The best proposals put forward will be crowned as winners. From learning about gilded skulls, becoming a tree egg, and deciding between death by lawnmower or by helicopter blade, to serious things like doing a will and writing posthumous revenge letters to your enemies - open up interesting and funny conversations about your inevitable end, while you still can!
If you enjoyed Gloom, Trust Me I'm a Doctor, or Cards Against Humanity you will love this ridiculous party game and have fun learning something new about the people closest to you. Even though all of us will die someday, not all of us have had the opportunity to talk about our preferences with friends and family. Carked It! offers people the opportunity to have those sometimes difficult but extremely important conversations in a fun and silly way.
So how do you plan out your own final days? With the help of your friends of course!
Each round, you'll randomly draw or choose the following:
How will you die? Over 72 ridiculous deaths to respond to!
Was killed by a murderous pod of dolphins whilst hugging his great white shark friend.
Met their end via drag queen's stiletto straight through the neck.
Ripped in half by big crab.

Expired after being impaled by a rouge narwhal.
Passed away peacefully, after a long fulfilling life, in a field of sunflowers.
Though this game covers the topic of death in a conversational and light-hearted way, the issue of death and grieving will be experienced by everyone at point in their lives. In addition to being a whole lot of fun, this game is intended to be used as an educational and conversation-starting resource for families, carers, and friends to discuss these often-difficult topics. Additionally, we of course do not condone or encourage any acts of self-harm, violence, or suicide, and want to provide some resource links below for anyone who is or knows someone who may need help:
