Help Kick Start "Oh My God!" There's An Axe in My Head

Chris and David, designers of Oh My God! There's An Axe in My Head, have recently started a Kickstarter campaign to raise money or the first printing of the game.  Here is a quick description of the game from its entry on Boardgamegeek:

Geneva, 1920: The League of Nations convenes for the first time. Proud to be the host for this august world body, Switzerland invites its champion axe-juggling troupe, Les Bella Lieben Jolie De Von Giorno, to entertain the assembled delegates. Unfortunately, halfway through the demonstration, the Troupe goes insane and begins hurling axes into the audience, splitting head after head. The Secretary General calls for calm, but before he can order a recess, his cranium is split as well.

The remaining Great Powers use the confusion to pass the gavel between themselves, conduct international business amidst the chaos, and generally try to shift the balance of world power while escaping a bunch of armed psychopaths.

The "setting" for the game sounds great and the barebones description calls to mind one of my favorite games of all time, Sid Sackson's I'm the Boss.  If the game has that kind of controlled chaos, I'm in.

I'm intrigued by the game and, as such, it will earn my first Kickstarter contribution.  Just thought I would bring it to our readers attention since, if it caught my eye, it might be something you guys would be interested in jumping in on the ground floor of.
