About

In Mob Sitters, you take on the role of a babysitter working for the mob. Just because crime pays the bills doesn’t mean these mobsters don’t have families! You’re no ordinary babysitter though, otherwise you wouldn’t be mixed up with the mob. 

You’ve got plans of your own – whether it’s stealing from your boss, ratting out your rivals to the cops, or actually just some innocent babysitting, there’s money to be made here!

  • 3-8 Players
  • 8+
  • 20-30 Minutes

 Mob Sitters contains the following components:

  • 8x Player Decks (20 cards each)
  • 8 x Play mats
  • 10x Agenda Cards
  • Rulebook

 Note: Artwork is close to finished however we will still be making tweaks and is subject to changes.

 The Heavy Mob Deck - Expansion Set

The Heavy Mob expansion contains 56 extra cards, consisting of 7 cards for each player deck.

The core game is designed to be a light fun game that can be enjoyed by both experienced gamers and also people that only play games once or twice a year at the holidays.

The Heavy Mob is an expansion that brings added depth to Mob Sitters for experienced gamers. This deck enables players to do things like steal from other players or plant evidence on them along with a number of other actions. You could also rat on 2 people at the same time, but beware, that comes with the risk of being blamed for both crimes!

Start the game by dealing a hand of 6 cards from your player deck

 On your turn play 3 cards onto your player mat

Job cards and Steal cards allow you to earn money, so if these are still left on your mat at the start of your next turn, you get to put these into your safe

 There are also cards such as Tell 'The Boss' which you can use to accuse someone of their wrong doings. If the accusation is succesful the targeted card immediately goes to the player's relevant ‘Cops’ or ‘Boss’ pile.

But be careful, they may have something to push the blame back onto you

At the end of the game whoever has the most in their Boss pile is knocked out of the game because the boss caught them, then whoever has the most in the cops pile is out of the game because they have been caught by the cops. The player left in the game then total up what’s in their safe to see who’s won. 

If you'd like to know the exactly how the game plays the rules for Mob Sitters are available here:

Download Game Rules *

*The rule are complete and we are working on the final rulebook for the game, ready for production. Layout, design and language of the rules are still to be finalised and subject to be changed.

Our main aim is to fund our project and get Mob Sitters out to all backers! Should we fund and smash through our target we do have some stretch goals planned that will affect the core game and rewards for everyone pledging The Babysitter or higher.

We will be checking our Social media accounts frequently to check the status of these goals. If you think we have achieved one of the goals and we have not yet updated the cards then please let us know and we will be more than happy to update it!


Here's a video of Liam explaining how Mob Sitters works to Warren from On The Tabletop.



Shipping for pledges will be charged through BackerKit after the Kickstarter has ended. 

We will be fulfilling shipping from Zatu in the UK and Quartermaster in the USA. 

Brexit; the UK is currently due to leave the customs union with the EU at the end of the month, if this happens rest assured we will cover any additional costs of shipping and they will not be passed on to you. 

Risks and challenges

As any publisher will tell you there are always challenges to overcome that you hadn't expected. In delivering our first Kick Starter "Robot Royale" we hit a few issues that caused some delays, but we worked hard to overcome them, delivering a game we are extremely proud of.

With Mob Sitters we've done as much preparation as we can and are confident that whatever challenges arise we'll be to navigate them and deliver the game to you.

DESIGN
The core game is complete. The game has been play tested a lot since it's inception three years ago. We are currently doing some final balancing on the Agendas and the Heavy Mob Deck.

ARTWORK
The artwork for 6 of the 8 characters is complete and our artists is currently working on the last few cards for the last two characters, we're aiming to have these completed by the end of our Kickstarter campaign.

EDITING
The rules are complete and we just need to put them through design and layout.

MANUFACTURING
We have an excellent manufacturer that has a great track record of delivering high quality games for some of the biggest companies around. They have previously manufactured; Onitama, Dragonfire (D&D Board Game) and Archmage to name a few.

SHIPPING AND FULFILLMENT
As with our previous Kickstarter project, we will be using Backerkit to handle our post campaign process. The game will be shipped from China to our fulfilment partner in the UK and then dispatched to you from there.

Thanks for supporting us, let's make this project a reality.
