The Spill, boop, & BEHEXT — Smirk & Dagger Games

The Spill

A unique four-way dice tower stands at the center of this suspenseful cooperative game. The offshore rig DeepWell•4 has ruptured and is spilling crude oil into the ocean at an alarming rate! Your joint task force must work together as a team to avert an ecological disaster…one which threatens to contaminate marine life and devastate the ecosystem. Oil dice spill out of the tower onto the four quadrants of the game board, constantly creating new threats. Meanwhile, players sail the perimeter to contain the spill, remove what oil they can from the water, and save the sea life. It’s an exciting “reverse tower defense” challenge right to the very end.

The Spill features a captivating cover and illustrations by Kwanchai Moriya. Its amazing table presence paired with the cascade of 64 dice dropping through the tower is a huge consumer draw.

boop is a deceptively cute, deceivingly challenging abstract strategy game for two players. Every time you place a kitten on the bed, it goes boop, which is to say that it pushes every other kitten on the board one space away. Line up three kittens in a row to graduate them into cats… And then, get three cats in a row to win. But that isn’t easy with both you and your opponent constantly booping kittens around. It’s like…herding cats! Can you boop your cats into position to win? Or will you just get booped right off the bed?

boop. setupboop is an approachable but challenging abstract game and a worthy follow up to SHOBU. It features a quilted, fabric board that lays over the back of the box, completing the miniature-bed playing surface. There are 8 wood kittens and cats per player, with 32 adorable cat pieces in all! Stop traffic and grab hearts with adorable components, while delivering compelling, pure, abstract gameplay.

Contents: Quilted fabric game board (with the back of box used as the bed platform) and 32 wood cat pieces.


BEHEXT is a most unconventional deck-building game of arcane combat. In BEHEXT, you’ll curse and counter-curse your opponents into submission…while avoid being hexed yourself by the wild magics that have since passed beyond your control. It’s a highly interactive card game in which everything is a double-edged sword.
