You can fund this sarcastic board game about Silicon Valley on Kickstarter

Have you ever wanted to be a venture capitalist, investing in startups as you see fit? If you fund Maybe Capital on Kickstarter, you’ll be able to.

A simplistic title, Maybe Capital has players venturing around the game board and picking up pitching cards. They will then pitch the idea on the cards to their friends in order to secure funding.

“Money is an emerging trend. We all want it, and here in Silicon Valley it exists in huge landfill-sized piles. But how do we get more of it for ourselves? How do we capitalise on the ‘moronifaction’ of money?” says chief expert in residence at Disruption R&D, Dre, in the game’s video pitch.

Of course, that’s not all as players will also have to network in order to secure more funding.

A winner is declared once their portfolio of startups reaches IPO, or they earn US$50-million.

The funding pledge goals also poke fun at Silicon Valley, with US$1 netting you the title of Thought Leader, or pay US$79 for the ‘Dat Bro Tho: White Male Privilege Price’ tier.

Maybe Capital has so far raised just over US$5ooo of its US$9999 funding goal, with 79 backers and 21 days to go.

You can check out the product on the Kickstarter page.
