Product Description

Pests! is a competitive game for 2-6 players. Game mechanics include card drafting, modular board, variable player powers, and an action point allowance system. Play time is 45-75 minutes.

You play as an Exterminator who specializes in the elimination of a particular type of Pest: Flying Bugs, Creepy Crawlies, Winged Beasts, Vicious Vermin, Unwanted Guests, or Spooky Specters. You’ve been hired to clear your type of pests out of a house, but when you arrive, you discover that the house has other types of infestations. The homeowner’s hired several other exterminators, each with a different specialty, and only the first to complete their job will get paid.

Pests! was successfully funded on Kickstarter in March 2017, and shipped to backers in November 2017. Order your copy now to get the game with all the unlocked Kickstarter stretch goals!

“I was pleasantly surprised at how fun the game was. At first glance, it seems like a really light strategy game, but it turns out there’s a lot more strategy than you’d think at first. Right from the start, figuring out how to set up the house requires a lot of thought. Then, determining on each move how to spend your points, and crucially, whether to focus on your own pests or go after other players, gives the game a lot of depth.” -GeekDad

“Mechanically this game is ticking all the right box’s, you never really know who is going to win until the last minute as everything can change with a well played toolbox card or an unfortunate roll of a dice, this makes sure that even people falling behind the obvious leader still has a hope in hell of pulling it all back at the last minute.” -In2TheReview

“With basic mechanics and turn based game play it moves along at a good pace, keeps everyone engaged and ready to react to each other’s actions. It’s a really fun theme with really well made and well thought out components. The art is fun and whimsical and fits the theme well. The ability to change the game board makes each new game a unique experience.” -Golden State Gaming Network

 

“It does have that classic game feel to it, but it’s contemporary enough that you’re still going to enjoy it. I like the fact that the game beats you up by spawning all these pests constantly while you’re trying to clean up the house, but watch out for your opponents, because they may use some of their action points to give you a little dig or two. I enjoyed it, I hope you get a chance to check it out.” -Bearded Meeple

 

“You truly feel like an exterminator chasing bugs or mice through a house. Every action fits the theme from pests entering the house from an unsealed nest to playing a toolbox card to use a bug bomb, eliminating all the pests in a room. Both the artwork and abilities of the exterminators work thematically… There honestly wasn’t anything I didn’t enjoy in Pests.”

“Engrossing strategy and enjoyable art! The variable board development and character mixes make it a definite on my “Shut up and take my money” list!”
-Charlie Shreier, Playtester

“Really fun social game. Good balance of short learning curve, quick game play, and just enough depth to support a little strategery for experienced players.”
-Thomas Jordan, Playtester

“Pests! is a light tactical game that seamlessly melds Euro and American game styles. It has a refreshing theme and artwork. Pests! is a game I’ll recommend to fans of lighthearted competitive (take that) games and for families alike.”
-Paul Orosz, Playtester
