Jobstacles is an adult party game that mocks the job interview process.
To win, players must convince the designated hiring manager that their really, really, really bad applicant is always the best person for the job.
Each round the hiring manager deals three Jobs Cards and three Jobstacles cards to each player. Job Cards are simply jobs like 'circus performer', 'yoga instructor' and 'assassin', while Jobstacle Cards are quirks like 'practices nudism', 'smells terrible' and 'believes the moon landing was faked'.
Next, select a Job Card to act as the Job posting (e.g., rocket scientist) and ask all players except the hiring manager to submit the best job applicant using a Job card from their hand.
The hiring manager will collect all the cards and then show the full applicant pool to the group. With full knowledge of the pool, players will have an opportunity to sabotage the applicants they feel are most threatening by placing one Jobstacle card from their hand on the applicant per round. This additional round is what distinguishes Jobstacles from similar games within the category.
Finally, the hiring manager will select a winner. The first player to win three rounds wins the game.
