About this project
Dirty Cops is a fast-paced game for 2 to 4 players. Players work together to fight teams of criminals, while stabbing each other in the back to get the most loot. The player with the most cash in the end wins.
Just because the last criminal is down, doesn't mean that scores have been settled yet!
The game is divided into 3-4 Crime Scenes based on the number of players, with a Kingpin in the final Crime Scene. Each player receives Standard Issue Equipment, starting cash, 3 action cards, and 3 combat cards. At the end of each combat round a player must choose between drawing an additional combat card (to fight the criminals) or an additional action card (to scheme against the other players.)
Players fight through waves of criminals working together to survive, while scheming against each other to come out ahead with the most money. Thieving, backstabbing, snitching, framing, and laundering profits from a drug bust are just an average night in the world of Dirty Cops.
Can you unload your stash, or will a snitching partner get you fined? Will you be left holding the bag, or drop it on an unsuspecting dope? Big scores can quickly turn into huge losses, and payback is always waiting around the corner.

DISCLAIMER: Many images representing potential physical products (such as card foils, stickers, and packing materials) are artist renditions, and may change through the course of production. We are however putting forth our best effort to show what final production run items might look like. Some items represented as teasers may have masked, or altered appearance until they are unlocked, and in some cases have not yet been produced.
Review from Undead Viking :
We have been a long-standing partner with Playtest Northwest, and have been able to do hundreds of playtests because of this partnership. All of these playtests have helped strengthen the game design and mechanics, allowing us to provide players a rock-solid play experience.

Risks and challenges
All projects have a certain level of risk associated with them. As this is our first card game project we have been doing our best to minimize any potential risks. We've spent a year designing, playtesting, and revising the game. All of the art for the project has been completed ahead of us going to Kickstarter.
To minimize risk associated with manufacturing we are partnering with Panda Game Manufacturing. They are a proven high quality manufacturer with a great track record.
We are also partnering with 'Ship Naked' for the fulfillment side of this project. They are cost effective experts in Kickstarter campaign fulfillment and offer their Customs Friendly worldwide service. This gives us an ease of mind and helps to make this project EU friendly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
