Making Stuff Up as I go… The Novels, Games and Works of Curt Covert

Smirk & Dagger Games

In 2003, my love of board gaming found its ultimate expression. I opened my own game company and started inventing games.

Smirk and Dagger Games is a company with a clear mission and definitive gaming style, which mirrors my own tastes. I make nasty back-stabbing games.

See, it’s all about the rush of knowing they haven’t even seen it coming. You can’t help but smile – just before you twist ’em up and put the screws to them. It’s what I love about games. I love to taunt. To instigate and watch the sparks fly. I love ‘opportunity fire’ and the taste of revenge. And the games I invent are built to bring out the worst in people. Why? Because games are a lot more fun when you can stab a friend in the back.

But don’t take my word for it, grab some friends and sit down and play!

Hex Hex: A mean-spirited, hot potato-style game. Fast, fun and nasty!

Dead Head Chaos Poker: An unholy union of Poker and Russian Roulette.

Run for Your Life, Candyman: A hilarious 30 minutes of ripping off your opponent’s sugar-frosted limbs as you try to escape the sweet land of candy and confection.

Shootin’ Ladders FRAG FEST: The gingerbread men return in 7 action-packed scenarios of cookie combat and mayhem on a board that teaches you a lot more about mortality than morality.

Cutthroat CavernsWithout Teamwork, You’ll Never Survive. Without Betrayal, You’ll Never Win! A genre-bending card game of ‘kill stealing’ in a classic RPG dungeon setting. Now in its fifth printing with 4 exciting expansion games.

Sutakku: The Japanese dice stacking game of pushing one’s luck. The wise will distinguish ambition from reaching beyond one’s means.

So, have fun and don’t worry too much about behaving badly… ’cause, hey, it’s just a game.
