You’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted. You are humiliated and upset. It’s time to roll the dice!
The goal of the game is to get justice. The path to justice can be treacherous, though. You’ll need your instinct, guts, and some luck to get there.
To play: Each player chooses one of the “disgraced woman” game pieces and draws a card from the Perp Deck. This card goes face up in front of you while you are playing – this is your criminal. Now it’s time to get to work – try to move your game piece to Justice! Each player rolls the die to determine more about their perp and what path they’ll be taking to get to Justice.
If you roll a 1 or a 2: congratulations! Your Perp is a conservative. You will get full media and political support! Celebrities and news anchors will hang on your every word. Twitter and Facebook will support and help you with righteous outrage. You could actually make things up and no one will ever verify it or care. You will definitely get to Justice. Your goal is now to maximize the amount of payout and perks you’ll get along the way. Can you parlay this into a political career or maybe have a law named after you?
If you roll a 3 or 4: bad luck, your Perp is a liberal. While you can reach Justice, it won’t be easy and there will be difficult choices to make along the way. Will the media try to destroy you or your family? Will you be threatened or lose your job? Hopefully you’ll keep your sanity and your dignity through the long ordeal – don’t give up!
If you roll a 5 or 6: unfortunately, your Perp is either a Muslim grooming gang or a Kennedy. You will never achieve Justice and you automatically lose. Better luck next time.
Play again and again, there are endless possibilities!
