About Pass the Buck: A Game of Corporate Responsibility Management

Pass work off to your opponents and fib your way up the corporate ladder in this satirical bluffing card game.

Players can bluff about whether they are in the proper Department to take a Task, but if HR finds out, there will be consequences!

Developer's Artistic Statement

Inspired by real-life experiences, "Pass the Buck: A Game of Corporate Responsibility Management" is a tongue-in-cheek card game that pokes fun at how easy it is to avoid responsibility in big business. It was an incredibly cathartic challenge to turn such a frustrating concept into a fun and effective game mechanic, offering a source of transparency for how ridiculous the pervasiveness of responsibility-dodging is among corporate employees.
