Procrastinating usually ends up with negative consequences, but in this card game, procrastinators are rewarded!

Mattel has teamed up with Sarah Anderson to create a card game based on her award-winning webcomic: Sarah’s Scribbles. The Future Me Problems card game not only celebrates procrastination, but also rewards lazy lumps for putting off their responsibilities. 

Designed for kids ages 7 and up, the game rules are easy to learn, even for procrastinators. The game comes with two decks of cards: the schedule deck and the activity deck. Drawing schedule cards allows players to draw activity cards. Sometimes activity cards will have annoying responsibilities that cost players points, but other times they provide happy, little distractions that award players points. 2-4 players must learn how to play their schedule cards correctly to push their responsibilities onto the competition.

Procrastinators must beware though! Each activity card drawn increases the chances of a player drawing the large, important task card lurking somewhere in the deck. When someone draws the card, the game ends. Whoever has the most points from their activity cards wins the game.

Future Me Problems is waiting in Mattel Creations to reach its crowdfunding goal. Backers of the project who pledge $30 will receive the card game and 12 exclusive activity cards once the target is reached. More backers also mean increasing rewards for supporters. The crowdfunding event ends on May 4, so don’t procrastinate when it comes to supporting this card game by clicking here.
