SKEPTICS Board Game

Created by Usiak Games and Designs

SKEPTICS is a cooperative, dice rolling game, where players explore potentially haunted locations to prove the existence of ghosts. 1-4 players take on the role of Investigators gathering evidence of the paranormal. Investigators race against the clock exploring rooms and rolling dice to match icon sets to Search, Reveal, and Solve Clues. Each Clue will lead Investigators one step closer to revealing the Ghost. Environment Cards are drawn every hour, which may have hazards and conditions that will impede the Investigators’ progress. Investigators win if the existence of the Ghost can be proven in time, but Investigators fail if time runs out.

Almost there! Day 4
about 1 year ago – Sat, Jun 12, 2021 at 10:39:16 PM

Gooooood Morning, afternoon, or night (where ever you are. hopefully not somewhere haunted!).

I just wanted to give a Quick update to our Campaign. We are nearing the finish line already at the Start of Day 4 with one person shy 75% funded! All we need is 85 more backers to Fund and then we will be on our way to unlocking some pretty cool stretch goals! Please share, promote, and spread the word to make this a success! I want this game to be for YOU and want to continue to make expansions, and even work on some requests in the future! 

I have personally wrote to each and every backer so far, to say thank you for your support! (Check your messages!). 

Lastly, we had one of our fans playing our game last night on Tabletop Simulator and I REALLY have to put down part of their QUOTE here:


"I just tried the game with my friends and it was AWESOME! It started off relatively relaxed with us splitting up and searching the asylum. But the game quickly took off in intensity as the room cards neared the end of the deck.......My heart was pounding. Lots of laugher and "oh nooooooooos." It was a great night! I can't wait to get this game and try all of the ghosts and the "Museum" side of the map! Thanks for making an awesome game!"


(You can read the entire message in the Comments section of the Campaign!)


Thank you again everyone!
