Orphan Black

Orphan Black’s growing cult fanbase, or “Clone Club,” is buzzing more than ever, with the upcoming third season premiere looming and the recent announcement that Orphan Black #1 was February’s top selling comic book.

Now, beyond just publishing the wildly popular comic, IDW is releasing a series of Orphan Black tabletop games.

Read excerpts from the press release below to learn more:

Up first will be a deductive card game scheduled to be in stores this summer. The games will feature characters from the hit show and will further enrich the tension and unpredictability fans have experienced through the first two seasons…

The first Orphan Black game will be a tense contest of deduction and deception for 3-6 players. In Orphan Black: The Card Game, you are secretly assigned to one of three teams; the Proletheans, Neolutionists, or the Bird Watchers. The goal of the game is to influence as many clones into joining your faction as possible, while also keeping your opponents guessing as to which of the three factions you’re really working for. If you can keep other players in the dark while secretly exerting influence on your targets, you’ll come out on top. The constant uneasiness of not knowing who to trust during the game will have players feeling like they’re living an episode of the hit TV show, and the strategic depth of play will excite even the most avid board gamers.

“We’re extremely pleased about expanding our partnership with IDW,” Managing Director of Temple Street Productions John Young said. “We’re very excited about the new Orphan Black tabletop games which give our fans the opportunity to spend more time in the Orphan Black world they love and share that experience with friends.”

Orphan Black premieres on BBC America on April 18, 2015 at 9:00pm ET. If you don’t have BBC America, you can still view the season three premiere across all AMC network channels in the United States and across Bell Media’s Space, Bravo, CTV, and MTV channels in Canada.
