Cuddly Cockroaches: The Origin Story
Let’s start at the very beginning: Losing our jobs during a global pandemic and getting quarantined in our cockroach-infested Brooklyn...
Cuddly Cockroaches is a 2-5 player card game created by The Naked King during COVID Quarantine, stuck in a roach-infested apartment in Brooklyn, NY for 5 months straight.
Unlike us, YOU can survive the infestation by building a roach army and infesting your neighbor’s apartment, and by playing supply cards that mess with your neighbors and send roaches to the basement. Every turn more roaches are added to the game, and some roaches have extra abilities that make them more desirable roommates. Be careful though, if you get more than ten roach points you lose the game and your apartment gets fumigated!
Naked King Studios is an independent soon-to-be husband/wife/cat game studio in the heart of Brooklyn.
We build clever fun board games that are accessible to everyone.
Thanks for playing!
