Introducing a New Hidden Role Board Game by Dog Might Games!

Recommended Posts

Dog Might Games is back with its newest title Countdown: Action Edition! With a short play time, tons of player options, a built-in moderator, and unique role-playing mechanics, Countdown: Action Edition delivers a totally new hidden role experience.




One reckless Action Hero

An out of control hostage situation

Who will you trust?


In Countdown: Action Edition players become characters within a 1980’s action flick. Villains have taken hostages and rigged the whole place to blow, but they didn’t count on the timely arrival of the Action Hero. Thinking fast they’ve hidden themselves among the hostages waiting to be released. There’s not enough time to save everyone. Get the innocent hostages out while leaving the bad guys behind to fall victim to their own plots. Unfortunately for our Hero, many of the hostages also have their own plans to use this situation to their advantage.

Jam packed with nostalgia and humor, Countdown: Action Edition offers new twists on the beloved hidden role genre.

The Countdown Deck creates exciting tension by randomly triggering the end of the game. Since no one knows which card will be the bomb every decision is critical, and games stay fast and fun.

The moderator is built directly into gamplay through the Action Hero. Making sure that everyone gets in on the fun while still keeping the game organized and flowing.

Action Scene Cards mean that every player gets an opportunity to take center stage and can redirect the movie scene with unexpected plot twists.    

Role Playing is a core part of gameplay making each game a hilarious and different experience. Watch your friends drop epic one liners and do their best 80’s movie impressions. The amazing art from Andrew Thompson is designed to help everyone, from new role players to experienced actors, get into character.


Coming to Kickstarter Soon!


Stay tuned as we show off more of Countdown: Action Edition.

So any idea on the kickstarter date?

Tentatively, we are looking at early next year but have been tossing around the idea of going earlier....

It's a lot of fun, especially if you have a group of players that can really get into roleplaying the characters. Watching a group of 80's stereotypical WWF wrestlers prance, posture, and bicker back and forth is so amazing! We once had someone imitating Randy Savage, another Hulk Hogan, and another Andre the Giant. It was hilarious.
