Cops & Robbers Card Game: Jenn Sandercock's Non-Digital Games

Cops & Robbers Card Game

This game was inspired by my game idea a week project, in particular, idea 20. To play this game you will need to:

  1. Download the zip file containing rules and cards;
  2. Follow instructions in the readme file to print the cards;
  3. Obtain 24 buttons or coins to use as "money".
  4. Buy 56 card protectors to put the cut up cards (available from games shops).
The rules are shown below so you can read through them.

If you don't want to print the game and find your own buttons, you can now buy this game through the Game Crafter website. They will print the game, include coins, and send it to you, see Cops vs Robbers on Game Crafter.
