Cards Against Marketing Madness!

Posted: April 23, 2014 | Modern Marketing

If you’re a seasoned marketer, you might not remember a time when “tactical deliverables” or “demand generation” were meaningless terms. But if you’ve ever tried to explain your job to a kindergartener, you know that “marketing-speak” is a very special language, full of mysterious acronyms, random abbreviations, and misunderstood buzzwords. And in our opinion, marketing-speak can also be a lot of fun.

That’s why we put together “Cards Against Marketing Madness” – a card game for and by marketers. Full of our favorite (and least favorite) marketing terms and techniques. The card game is easy to learn, can be played by small or large groups, and is the perfect way to revive a dull meeting – or a workplace happy hour that isn’t really “happening”.

Intrigued? Download the cards (using the link to our free PDF!), watch our video explaining the rules, and get playing!
