    Pros: 

    A party game for your inner entrepreneur, with just enough structure to enable hilarity and just enough chaos to ensure it.

    Cons: 

    The cards are way too funny and hit way too close to home.

    The full force of the Maybe Capital Board (Game) Meeting is an epic journey that can take a group of players from Stanford Business School to riches in the course of an evening. The game play moves through a hilarious satire of startup jargon and $6 pour-overs, but the core of the experience is the pitch round, where each player draws two cards and does their best to pitch their pet find to the rest of the board. Juxtaposing key elements of the zeitgeist enables surprising business ideas to become memorable and hilarious pitches. I've never laughed so hard, nor felt so witty, at any other VC board meeting.

    Pros: 

    Balanced, judge-less prompt game. Funny without trying too hard.

    Cons: 

    Perhaps a little too "inside baseball" for people outside of the tech sphere.

    I played this at a con and was happy how much it let players' personalities shine through a humorous lens.

Could this product be the next billion dollar unicorn idea? This is the most awesome product that ever existed ever. Have you always wanted to be a Venture Capitalist? Now, with Maybe Capital's first physical product, you can participate in the first Venture Capital as a Service. We'll train you to become the best VC you can be, with VCaaS. It's a satirical board game about Silicon Valley, where players travel up and down the 101 and compete for funding from VC firms and investors. The better you are at pitching, the more millions of dollars you'll earn. :)

This is awesome, but I'm not sure my social circle will be the ones who enjoy playing this! I'm the tech one of the bunch!
