Last year, Dice Hate Me Games brought out two joke games that were also real (and really fun) games! Deck Building: The Deck Building Game and Unpub: The Unpublished Card Game came out July 2015 to huge success.
Well, they’re back with more joke games (which are also real games)! Greater Than Games ran a competition to find the best real games—which are also jokes—and had more than one hundred fifty entries submitted! They narrowed it down to the two best joke games (which are also real games) and are now presenting Time Management: The Time Management Game by Nat Levan (creator of New Bedford, a real game that is not a joke game) and Trick-Taking: The Trick-Taking Game by Bob West and Tovarich Pizann (creators of a real joke game which is both real and a joke).
In addition to those, Dice Hate Me and Greater Than Games are releasing the new game from Christopher Badell and Peter C. Hayward: Traitor Mechanic: The Traitor Mechanic Game! It’s totally a joke, but it’s also a real game!
Time is money! Especially when you manage the space-time continuum at the Office of Time Management. You’ve got a deadline, and it’s up to you to keep the office—and time itself—running smoothly. You have (really) flexible hours, but you’ll need to complete projects, hire temporal workers, and carefully manage time and space itself in order to earn your hours and keep your job! The player with the most time remaining at the end of the game wins.

Astound your friends! Confuse your enemies! Compete to be the best! During the week of rehearsals, keep a close eye on your rival magicians and out-do their best tricks…or steal them. Conjurations, illusions, levitation—build up your collection of pilfered magic so that, at the end of the week, you can blow the audience away!
Life is always busy at Slim’s Auto Shop. But ever since a rival repair store opened up across town, things have seemed even more chaotic than usual. Simple repairs have started going wrong; instead of new headlights, that old Jeep was sent out with six new belts. The bus with four broken windows was cleaned up and given diamond-studded tires. Is it possible that someone is deliberately throwing a wrench in the works? Could one of your co-workers be…a traitor mechanic? Traitor Mechanic: The Traitor Mechanic Game is a game of social deduction and auto repair for four to ten mechanics…some of which may be traitors!
