Prepare for an Edge-of-Your-Seat Thriller Set in Space with WizKids’ Upcoming Release, Burke’s Gambit – Coming Soon!
Hillside, NJ — September 1, 2016 – WizKids is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Burke’s Gambit. Designed by Rob Yates, Burke’s Gambit is a game of bluffing and social deduction, and will release in stores this December.
Players will be speeding through space on Burke’s Gambit, a rugged company freighter on an extremely important mission. Your crew has been tasked with finding powerful alien technology, but what you find instead is something unexpected… a dangerous parasitic organism somehow made its way into the ship and inside the body of one of your crew members.
Join the crew of Burke’s Gambit on a wild space adventure with hidden affiliations and a hidden (even to themselves!) infected player. Split into two teams and take on the roles of Captain, Marine, Comms Officer and more in an effort to discover each crew member’s hidden agenda and who has been infected.

Let paranoia run rampant in this thriller, great for large groups of 4-8 players! Using only your dice and your wits, you must discover the truth before enough engine power-ups are rolled and the ship reaches Earth, where a vote must be made. Choose the wrong player to be spaced and your team (or even the entire planet) will lose!
