Little Drop of Poison is a fast-moving card game that will have you changing your allegiances several times. It will also have many of you disregarding alliances for the sake of revenge. 

This is a 3 - 8 player game, for ages 8 and up, taking 15-30 minutes to play depending on the number of players. It only takes about 5 minutes to learn or to demo!

The game highlights the generations-old feud between the rats and the weasels. Neither the peasant rats nor the peasant weasels are prone to outward violence, however, so things are done more surreptitiously - with a little drop of poison. 

A rat peasant, a weasel peasant and the weasel king!

 Shipping:

If you are getting the base game or the deluxe game, shipping to the USA is free and elsewhere is $5.

If you are including "Time Jockeys" on any level of support, shipping to the USA is free and elsewhere is $10.

If you are from the Winnipeg region and want to pick up your game(s) at either Game Knight or A Muse N Games, pretend to be from the USA until the Backer Survey. This will result in free shipping.

If you are an international store, we will ship free to a US-based freight forwarder, otherwise please e-mail me for shipping costs.

New Retailer Level: Please be advised that the deluxe game does not have a bar code on the outside of the bag. You would have to scan the box inside the bag. 

Just a small note to give a tip of the hat to the artist Colton Balske! Check out his stuff at http://coltonbalske.tumblr.com

Risks and challenges

We have an experienced team of people to do printing, to do shipping and on the organizational side of things. We have used Quality Playing Cards & Games as our printer before.
This is about getting decks of cards printed, and some smaller packs of cards for the stretch goals, should they be achieved. It's by far the least complicated game that we have ever produced. The custom bags and glass beads for the deluxe editions are already in hand.
Update: We're going to need more bags and beads, but we know where to get them!
