Why a game about death? Because it happens to us all eventually, and this is one way to talk about it that’s fun, lively, and informative.
Whose idea was this? That would be Kimberley and James. She’s an artist and licensed grief and trauma therapist, he’s a teacher, historian, and musician. You can find out all about them on our creators page.
How old should players be? Recommended for 17 and up, but it’s great for mature teenagers. It’s a party game, so think who you’d invite to a party.
How long does it take to learn and play? It’s quick to pick up (we fitted all the rules on to one card) and about 45-90 minutes to play. Find out more on the rules page.
What’s in the box? 162 cards, plus the rules card.
I’ve played it and loved it. Are you planning expansion decks? Yes!
What will they be about? We’re currently working on two expansion decks, each of 72 cards. The Mortician's Deck, more trivia about death and Memento Mori deck more conversation about death.
When will they be available? Soon! We're hoping to send the files for the Memento Mori deck to the printer in October 2018, and the Mortician's deck will follow shortly after. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the announcements.
Are you planning any other languages than the American English version? We’d love to, and as soon as translations are available we’ll let you know.
Who is your illustrator? The amazing Prem Krishnan drew our Death's-Head Hawk Moth. It’s gorgeous, yes?! We're very proud of it.
Can I get it on a t-shirt or a poster? We did a limited edition print for our Kickstarter backers, and we’re definitely looking forward to putting it on more items (did we say how proud of it we are?).
Who printed this amazing game? Panda Game Manufacturing.
I have a question I think would be great on a card. Can I email it to you? We’re really glad you have questions – after all, we want the game to spark your lively curiosity about death. Unfortunately, we can’t accept submissions for cards at this time.
Why is shipping so high? The main deck weighs just under 1 pound. Literally, 12 ounces without packaging. We don't make any profit off shipping costs.
I want to carry your deck in my store. How can we make that happen? We’re definitely looking for partners that can represent the game. Please note, we do not sell the game on commission and we sell in quantities of 36. Please visit our wholesale page for more information.
I am a non-profit and would love to buy multiple copies for an upcoming death focused event. Is that possible? Yes. Please email us.
