Crowdsourcing Mornings: Malpractice! – A Card Based RPG

Welcome to the Crowdsourcing Mornings segment!  Every weekday morning, Geek Alabama talks about and features one crowdsourcing project from crowdsourcing sites such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and others.  The hope with Crowdsourcing Mornings is to feature and help a project be successful and reach its fundraising goal.  Please enjoy today’s featured project!

You are Dr. Mallory Addison, a new hire at Discount Medical, fresh out of med-school with a bright smile on your face and hopes of becoming a productive member of society. Unfortunately, you have to put that last bit on hold because you’ve got bigger problems: paying back your student loans. So you do what a few of your friends have done and gotten yourself a second job to help speed things along.

Of course, what you don’t tell people is that your second job is working for the Mob. That would be an unfortunate thing to happen as people tend to look down upon such actions. That might get you fired! And worse, you’d still have loans to pay back!

All you need to play this game is this book, a standard deck of 52 playing cards, and an active imagination!

Gameplay is broken into cycles. Each day you start with the full deck of 52 cards. Then you go through your day job, an event, and then your night job. During your day job you will choose a number of cards to pull from the deck, hoping to get hearts and avoiding spades. This represents you… ensuring unneeded supplies and organs make their way into your hands while keeping your patients alive.

Depending on what skills you decide to focus on, you may find yourself leaning towards too closely to one job or the other! Focus on being your day job and you may not be able to pay your loans! Focus on your night job and you may neglect to keep your patients well!

As of February 15th, this project has raised $283 of their $300 goal. This project has 22 days left to raise the $300 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $10, you will get one PDF copy.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mcolon/malpractice-a-card-based-rpg?
