Description Edit | History

A novel trick-taking board game. Hack the system and steal the data before anyone knows you’re there!

2-6 players > Ages 10 and up > 45 minutes

Information wants to be free, but you charge by the hour...

In the world of network security, a Black Hat is a hacker who defeats computer systems for personal gain. These rogue data jockeys pit themselves against the most secure systems in the world for the thrill of it (and maybe to make a little money on the side). However, the most skilled hackers know it’s not about getting there first, it’s about ghosting in and out of the system without leaving a trace.

Black Hat is a hacker-themed game, combining trick taking with a game board. It works well as a family game and equally well for hardcore gamers. Black Hat is easy to learn, has a wide variety of working tactics and luck is less important than is common in trick-taking games.
