Dastardly Designs Co. was created by two friends who have spent years in the gamification field, as well as playtesting and reviewing games. We decided that the time was right to bring some of our own ideas to the marketplace, and started building our team.
Our diverse backgrounds lead to a unique team approach to design. We have proven experience in gamification as well as test-driven, agile development techniques and a strong commitment to doing things the right way. Our team members all share a love of gaming, board games and spending time with friends and family.
Out of Line: Food Trucks is a “take-that!” light board game for 2-6 players that plays in 15-20 minutes. It’s a blend of strategic positioning, card play, and good old-fashioned sabotage, where you shouldn’t be afraid to cut in line or use distractions to your favor.
Out Of Line: Nature Calls!
Everyone needs to do it, nobody wants to talk about it. You’re at an outdoor concert and the only “facilities” are Portable Toilets... and, of course, there’s always a line to deal with. Race to be the first one to find relief, but hope that nature doesn’t strike while you’re caught waiting... that would sure be embarrassing!
In Indictment, players are politician's media relations professional trying to bury their scandals before the press can dig up the dirt. Just as in politics, there are no winners in this game. Just one person left holding on to scandals and being indicted. The rest survive until the next round of scandals hits.

Merchants of Haz'ard County

Everyone needs to do it, nobody wants to talk about it. You’re a wizard at an outdoor concert and the only “facilities” are not-so-portable "toilets"... and, of course, there’s always a line to deal with. Race to be the first one to find relief, but hope that nature doesn’t strike while you’re caught waiting... or you could simply cheat your way to the front with a little friendly magic.
Project: Squirrel Wars
Our first game in Weedly World, squirrels battle in a chess-like game to be the last survivor in Uncle Don's yard.
