Daggers Highschool - a game I designed on Kickstarter

Hi everybody! Diplomacy has had a huge influence on me, and even led me to start designing my own board games. If you like some of the same social dynamics from Diplomacy, you may want to take a quick look at this game. It is about high school students competing with each-other to get into college, and they'll bully or cheat in order to look better on the resume. Players have a lot of options in terms of strategy, and you have to manage different resources such as your friends, club leadership roles, essays, grades, teacher recs, and more.

Anyway, you can see the Kickstarter page here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/975340335/daggers-highschool. If you have some time to check it out, I'd really appreciate it! Let me know if you have any questions in the comments. Thanks!

As someone who has also loved designing board games (I've done it ever since I was a kid - though I've gotten better since then. I still have a nasty habit of prototyping rules, coming up with mechanics, and lacking commitment to finish off the job...), I'm taking a look at this: and it looks good!

I'm new to the site (joined maybe a month ago? I have trouble remembering), but Diplomacy was huge when I was growing up as well, and it's nice to see so many other people with similar interests and a similar love of designing board games. Maybe someday I'll get down and finish one of my old projects.
