LinkedIn (LNKD) co-founder Reid Hoffman is committed to countering presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Earlier this week, Hoffman pledged to support a crowd-funding campaign for veterans if Trump releases his tax returns. He later said a Trump presidency would have a terrifying effect on domestic and foreign policy. And now he’s coming out with a card game: “Trumped Up Cards: The World’s Biggest Dek.”

Not unlike the popular (and crass) Cards Against Humanity, “Trumped Up Cards” is a multi-player game “where players need really big hands to win,” according to USA Today. Hoffman said in a Medium post that it was inspired by the likes of The Daily Show and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

“[W]e decided that satire that reveals the absurdity of our current situation is the only fitting response to these times,” he wrote. “And with Trump carpet-bombing political news cycles with low-brow entertainment, we figured why not carpet-bomb low-brow entertainment with politics?”


All profits from the game, which costs $20.16, will “go to charities that are already working to keep America great.”
