    Description

    Conviction is a political satire card game where players deliver sweet judicial justice to Trump, his cronies, and other political characters. The game allows you and your friends to take matters into your own hands as prosecutors putting a wide variety of public figures on trial – from Ivanka and Jared to Betsy DeVos and Paul Ryan – in front of Lady Justice.

    Over the course of four years (rounds), prosecutors take turns rolling the dice to put a Public Figure on trial. Rolling anything but doubles will convict the Public Figure and add them to that prosecutor's conviction pile. But if you do roll doubles, the Public Figure is acquitted and placed under the protection of Lady Justice. Each Public Figure has a point value – the more notorious they are, the more points they’re worth. Trump and his inner circle, family, and comrades are the most valuable convictions; if you somehow convict a Public Figure not associated with Trump (e.g. Elizabeth Warren or the Muslim American), it’ll cost you points. Whoever has the most points at the end wins the game and saves America!

    Motion cards add an element of chance and strategy to the game, allowing prosecutors to manipulate the order of the trials or affect the proceedings in other specific ways. The names and illustrations for each Motion offer a tongue-in-cheek take on moments ripped from the headlines, referencing everything from “alternative facts” to Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp.”

    Similar to:
    * Guillotine - Conviction’s theme is based on the United States political environment. Similar general card mechanics, though many new specific card effects have been invented. Conviction also introduced dice for randomness in trials to mirror reality. Game art is educational and humorous.
    * Family Business - Both Conviction and Family Business are fast-paced card games, combining a shared play-area of character targets with an additional deck where players can manipulate proceedings as they jostle for advantages. However, Family Business is an elimination game instead of being points-based and Conviction does not contain any “interrupt”-style mechanics. Of course, both games feature a cast who’d be better off in prison.
