“We’re extremely pleased about expanding our partnership with IDW” says John Young, Managing Director of Temple Street Productions. “We’re very excited about the newOrphan Black tabletop games which give our fans the opportunity to spend more time in the Orphan Black world they love and share that experience with friends.”
The first Orphan Black game will be a tense contest of deduction and deception for 3-6 players. In Orphan Black: The Card Game, you are secretly assigned to one of three teams; the Proletheans, Neolutionists, or the Bird Watchers. The goal of the game is to influence as many clones into joining your faction as possible, while also keeping your opponents guessing as to which of the three factions you’re really working for. If you can keep other players in the dark while secretly exerting influence on your targets, you’ll come out on top. The constant uneasiness of not knowing who to trust during the game will have players feeling like they’re living an episode of the hit TV show, and the strategic depth of play will excite even the most avid board gamers.
Look for Orphan Black: The Card Game to hit stores in July 2015. In the meantime, IDW Games will unveil more details about both the card and upcoming big box tabletop game on www.idwgames.com.
