About

In Dig Dig the aim is to get rid of all your cards. Based on a game we played all the time as students, Dig Dig is a strategic but often unpredictable card game. You compete to see who can get through all their cards the quickest. 

Dig Dig is quick to learn and easy to play. Each round takes about 5-10 minutes and can be played with 2 to 5 players.

Using power cards at crucial moments to manipulate play, you can get one over on your friends and show them who’s king of the hill! 

Created by Joff Bradford and Ray Marett, we are looking for support from the awesome Kickstarter community to help make our dream of creating our very own game a reality. 

"A very sweet and easy-to-learn family card game with funny artwork 🐱❤. But it isn't just luck, Dig Dig also gives you the possibility to master it by thinking of a smart strategy to determine the pace and the turns of the other players 😼." 


"This is a fast and light card game with uber-cute artwork. Get rid of your cards first and you win.

 This game feels like a new take on the classic cards games we all played in our youth and will appeal to fans of games like Exploding Kittens and Fluxx (but this game is better and faster). Easy to learn and plays fast."


"What I love about Dig Dig is that it is super similar to the face card game Palace.  We love Palace.  And if you buy 2 decks then you can play up to 10 people which makes it a party."


"I like how simple and yet fun @digdiggame is. My coworkers and I are playing while eating lunch. It’s just chill. I’ve never played the card game Dig Dig is based on, but it reminds me of the card game 13."

Setting Up

This should look familiar to anyone who played the same game we did.  For everyone else, the rules are super easy:

Hi, I'm Joff, and I met my good mate Ray in the South-West of England, UK. If you haven’t heard, it rains here, like a lot. Not fun tropical, holy moley, rain, more like wet air, like when you get out of a shower, but cold. It’s not all gloom though, our grass loves it, and you know what loves grass? No, not Snoop Dogg, freaking moles!  

So, looking out at Ray’s garden at all the dastardly mole hills we thought, what really goes on out there? Well, we’re not weird or anything, but imagine the deadly game of chess that’s being played each day between those fuzz balls the moles and the dirt-eating invertebrate worms. Well, and again I stress, not weird, we decided to make a game out of it! 

Ray and I discovered that we had many things in common, most importantly beer. We would spend many a night in our local pub talking about and playing games. We kept coming back to the same game we had both played at university. Which has a rude name which is why I can't repeat it here. So if you have played the same game, then we hope you love our take on it and if you haven't played it before then back our Kickstarter for some family fun... or go for the NSFW edition, but beware, it's pretty ******* offensive.

So the great guys and gals at Geeky Goodies like Dig Dig so much (they said it was better than Exploding Kittens, hashtag just saying) they've teamed up with us to produce these really cool t-shirts.

If you'd like a t-shirt just find the right size for you and add the amount to your pledge total.  Don't worry, shipping is included so there will be no extra cost.  And Geeky Goodies will even ship direct.

Risks and challenges

What if the printing company we have costed to create the game goes out of business?

• Since games like Exploding Kittens and Cards Against Humanity, the card game printing business has become very competitive and we have already tendered to a variety of different companies, all with great reputations for quality and fulfilment.

What if the artwork is delayed?

• We would much rather give you a high quality game than release a rushed, inferior quality version so if the artwork is delayed it would cause a delay to the project, there's just no getting around that. However, we have already started the art requirement (as you can see from the main video) and we are confident that everything will be finished well before our production schedule is due to begin.

What will we do if the Kickstarter is a huge success and we need to order many more units than we initially planned for?

• We have already thought about this scenario. In fact, as all card game creators do at some point, we've dreamed of this scenario! The printing companies we have approached have the ability to print much larger quantities and, if required, ship them to global distribution centres to aid fulfilment. Feel free to reassure millions of your friends!

What if the moles rebel against being portrayed as the villains in our game and rise up and overthrow the human race, forcing us all to live underground in their tunnels while they enjoy lavish, worm laden lives in our abandoned homes?

• We will, of course, bow down to our new subterranean overlords and change the concept so that the evil worms are no longer the heroes of the game. We'll also add a free worm sandwich to every pledge.
