- 3-6 players.

Orphan Black, the hit BBC drama about clones discovering one another, is going to be multiplying over the next few years on your game table. IDW Games is brining a number of Orphan Black board games out, the first of which was announced today.
Orphan Black: The Card Game is a 3-6-player deduction game, which makes sense given the series’ reliance on secret motives. Each played is assigned to one of three teams: The Proletheans, Neolutionists, or Bird Watchers. And you need to convince as many clones as you can to join your faction. Pro tip: Tell them there is punch and pie.
While you’re attempting to draft clones to your cause, you need to keep your own allegiance secret. If other players know which side you’re on, they will have an easier time foiling your machinations.
Orphan Black is set to arrive in stores in July, around the time the third season of the BBC show should be hitting its finale.
