I've created a quick and light dice-rolling game, and I'd like your help in funding a small print run!
You are an elite computer security operative working for the New Security Alliance. Proudly serving your country, you spend every day to protect the freedom of its brave citizens. Well, most of every day...
Whenever the boss is not around, the players hack into their employer's mainframe to snoop around for some state secrets, or at least some juicy gossip. After all, the only way up the ladder here is twisting your boss's arm with some defaming documents... You’ll need to be the first to collect that epic stash of secrets!
In Security is a light dice-rolling game for 3-6 players. I created it for a game design competition on Board Game Geek (where it won the Theme, Mechanics, and Design Quality categories, as well as the Grand Prize!). It's super-quick to set up and explain, and takes just 15-20 minutes to play, so it's a perfect little filler game!
This video explains how to play:
Or if you prefer, you can simply look at the rules.
There are only three pledge levels. Because simple is good.
- The DICELESS EDITION is the cheapeast option! I'll send you 6 pocket-sized player mats (7x12 cm) to which you'll add your own dice to play. The abridged rules are printed on the back of the player mats. (You can still download the PDF rulesheet and/or watch the video tutorial above.)
- The COMPLETE EDITION is the full package, ready to play! The 6 player mats, plus 6 player dice, 6 hacking dice, and (in addition to the rules on the mats) you get a full-colour double-sided rulesheet.
- The LIMITED EDITION is the complete game, packaged in a custom-printed and numbered drawstring bag, hand-made by me! This tier will become available on Friday May 2nd, 9pm BST.
In Security is meant to be a small and cheap game, so to save you money, I'm packaging both editions in a grip-seal bag rather than in a custom printed box.
Add-ons (multiple copies)
If you'd like multiple copies of In Security, you can simply pledge a higher amount! Just add an extra £2 for an additional Diceless version, or £6 for an additional Complete version.
Non-UK backers only need to pledge the international shipping costs once. For example, 2 Complete versions for a Dutch backer would cost £15 total: 2x £6 plus the £3 shipping charge.
(Please don't try to add Complete add-ons to the Diceless pledge level.)
Thanks to our backers, we've hit 100% funding in record time! Here's how we celebrate:
You can find Custom Game Lab's Kickstarter project here.
Update: By request, I've also created player mats with a separate track for Access Level, and added those to the player mats file. Now you can play the PnP version with just 6 dice and some coins or tokens. Enjoy!

Risks and challenges
While this is my first Kickstarter project, it’s not the first card game I’ve designed or had printed. The fact that In Security consists of only small player mats, dice and a rulesheet makes manufacturing straightforward. Everything will be ordered and printed in the UK, and I’m experienced in preparing files for print, so I don't expect major issues there. The game is nice and compact so storage is not a problem either.
I reckon the biggest challenge for me will be the manual handling of the postage: I’ve never had to write hundreds of addresses or been to the post office with a wheelbarrow full of envelopes :) It may be a few long evenings for me, but you can be sure I'll see it through!
