About

A fantasy deduction game for 2 to 6 players.
A fantasy deduction game for 2 to 6 players.

Deep in Clagfoot swamp, the foulest bog in all of Edra, there is a myth that tells of a curious bottle with the power to grant one’s heart’s desire. For trapped inside the bottle is a mischievous imp known as Grocklesnook. Just how he obtained his power and how he became trapped, has been lost in the mire of the swamp.

Many have travelled far and wide to claim the bottle. Over ford, hill, and grove; through forest, field, and desert; arcane alkymystics, celestial clerics, daylight druids, spirit shamans, wretched warlocks, ward wizards, and white witches all seek the bottled imp and crave its ultimate power.

The Bottled Imp Game is a 20-minute competitive fantasy deduction card game for 2 to 6 players. Outwit your friends to catch the imp!

Players take turns laying cards to sabotage, look at, and take from other players’ hands, plus boost their own cards, whilst seeking the elusive Bottled Imp to win the game.

Object of the Game

Over 8 rounds, players must compete to be the one who has the Bottled Imp Card in their hand at the end of the game. The player holding the Bottled Imp Card wins the game.

Risks and challenges

Every endeavour has risks associated to it, if it didn't then it wouldn't be worth doing, but rest assured that we have done the following to mitigate the risks of bringing you The Bottled Imp Game.

The game is already designed and the artwork is complete.

The sums have been done, the quotes from manufacturers and distributors are in, so there is contingency built into the budget.

We will be following a similar model that was used to deliver the successful Ghost Hunter: Vampires, Witches, Monsters, Spirits and Angels & Demons games in 2015, 2016 and 2017 from Ghastly Games. The contacts are in place and the timelines are familiar. We haven't failed yet and don't plan to start now.
