OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

IT DIES WITH Me is a new game designed by Andy Breckman for Breaking Games. Meant for ages 13 and up, this game for 4 to 6 players contains a very strict instruction. Inside the envelope is a real secret from someone at the table. This secret can never be shared, in fact, the winner of the round gets the secret and agrees to eat the paper it's written on taking this secret to the grave never revealing it to anyone. The secret is written on EDIBLE PAPER with a FOOD COLORING MARKER. Each player (including the player whose secret is in the game) is given one six sided die and a mini coffin. Players use coffins to hide their die number which they wager to be the highest or the lowest number when all are revealed. Players can choose any number from one to six. Everyone opens their coffin at the same time to see who wins each round. Matching numbers cancel each other out. In each round there are TWO winners! One winner draws a card, and the other moves their token. There are two ways to win the game. Be the first to collect cards that say IT DIES WITH ME or move your token across the grave tiles all the way to the secret envelope and reach the secret. In the box are 6 coffins, 6 grave tiles, 6 dice, 6 player tokens, 1 envelope, I food marker, edible paper(rice), 1 deck of cards, 1 expansion pack. Add The Dead Die expansion pack cards into the deck to cause more havoc in the game. The edibles are  FDA approved rice paper and food coloring marker. Replacements can be bought at most supermarkets. 

Is It Fun?

This game asks that you write down a real secret. Something juicy. Each player (including the player whose secret is in the game) is given one six sided die and a mini coffin. Players use coffins to hide their die number which they wager to be the highest or the lowest number when all are revealed. Players can choose any number from one to six. Everyone opens their coffin at the same time to see who wins each round. Matching numbers cancel each other out. In each round there are TWO winners! One winner draws a card. The other moves their token. There are two ways to win. Be the first to collect cards that say IT DIES WITH ME or move your token across the grave tiles all the way to the secret envelope and reach the secret. Add The Dead Die expansion pack cards into the deck to cause more havoc in the game. OUT OF WILL cards make a number moot. Cards that read BURIED ALIVE mean that you and the player on the tile next to you swap places. The DEATH'S COLD GRASP card means move one player's token back one grave tile.

Who It’s For

Designed for ages 13 and up this game for 4 to 6 players contains a very strict instruction. This game asks that you write down a real secret. Something juicy and never tell anyone what that secret is if you learn it. This is a game of real trust, so though it is recommended for ages 13 and up, we believe the audience for this game should skew higher. 

What To Be Aware Of

The edibles are FDA approved rice paper and food coloring marker and can be replaced at any supermarket. Just remember, agreeing to play means that you've said "this secret, IT DIES WITH ME!"
