Inside Job - An almost cooperative trick taking game

January 21, 2023 - 1:16pm

Inside Job has players taking the roles of secret agents as they work together to complete their missions. The trouble is there’s an insider hiding amongst them, seeking to sabotage and collect secret information along the way. This 3-5 player game is billed a mostly cooperative, trick-taking card game which plays in roughly 20 minutes. A 2-player variant is included.

Missions are completed with each trick and players try to discover the insider as they do so. There’s a social deduction element to the game as the insider attempts to thwart efforts to complete missions while trying to elude the other players.

The game is designed by Tanner Simmons and features art by Marek Bláha. The publisher, Kosmos, expects to release Inside Job later in 2023.
