About

This game is the end result of 2 years of game mechanic research, and decades of interest in the flow global narcotics.  After demoing at numerous gaming conventions and festivals, I decided that this game should be enjoyed by more people than just my immediate circle.  

By Including mechanics from some of my favorite games, and applying them to a subject and theme that I find deeply interesting, I have set out to create a game with rules that are elegant and flexible, with an engaging balance of strategic skill and luck  

- From the box- 

2-6 bosses of the global narco-trade vie to distribute banned substances by land, sea, and air while evading the Drug Interdiction Agency and their attempts to disrupt the flow of your product.

 Build international empires of drug cultivation, production, and distribution for eager markets with four types of controlled substances. Play across 74 drug hotspots from around the world. 

As a Druglord you will map trade routes, attack neighbors, and ball at international levels as your people make the transactions. Evade Counter-Trafficking Agents, defeat rival bosses, and score the most trades for victory! 

This game puts the world’s supply of reefer, pills, heroin, and cocaine in your hands, as you navigate global markets to have the fattest stack.

Risks and challenges

This is an ultra-limited release, shaped by a vision of getting Druglord into the hands of those are looking for the very finest in underground board game design. This release is made of American-printed board, cards, and box, and while this might be a little more expensive, we feel that the flavor of limited-run domestic production is delicious.

This is the end result of a lot of play testing across disparate play conditions, encompassing the input of the highest-level nerds of Origins, GenCon, DCGCon, and Michigan.
