Too many hijackers. Too few parachutes. Can you hold your nerve before you Hit The Silk?
Social deduction board game
Aboard the 19.05, you’ve discovered a bomb! You must cooperatively deduce which of your co-passengers plans to sabotage the train before a fatal collision in Paris. As the train hurtles towards its destination, use the cards in your hand to hit the brakes and eject the Saboteur. As each character also has a personal mission, it won’t be clear who you can trust. Have you got what it takes to avert disaster and Stop the Train!?
Semi-Cooperative Deception Game
It was always going to be a daring heist. Everything was going to plan until the pilot seized a gun from the lockbox, opened the emergency door and fired three rounds into the engine before bailing with his parachute and a spare! You need to secure the loot but now you’re a parachute down on a plane that’s losing altitude. Fast. Who can you trust? Who’s got the cash? Where are the ‘chutes? Can you hold your nerve before you Hit the Silk!?
At Escape Plan Board Games we are avid fans of cooperative play and social deduction games; until recently we have been known for creating popular live escape experiences in London, so it was only a matter of time before we expanded our creativity into the world of board games.
Inspiration for our first game – Stop The Train! – came from a casual conversation about a Secret-Santa gift and from this the premise our first game was born – to stop a train hurtling towards its ultimate destination. Then came Hit The Silk! which was conspired during the first lockdown of 2020 and evolved around a rowdy family dining table. We always have a great deal of fun creating and developing our games.
We’re independent publishers who are driven by a love of creating entertaining experiences with a commitment to eco-conscious production. We hope you have fun playing our games!
“Stop the Train! delivers an excellent social deduction experience with superlative subterfuge, quick gameplay and high interaction. You will be pulling this game out of the cupboard to play after dinner with non-gamers and gamers alike and will be entertained from beginning to end.”
Nick T of Board Game Review
“From the designers of my 2020 party game of the year, Hit the Silk! Is a brilliant family-friendly game that brings fresh new ideas to the table. With immersive and engaging components, bright and vibrant art and varied card play, Hit the Silk! will be an insta-back for many when it hits Kickstarter this year. Don’t miss out!”
Jim of What Board Game
“Hit The Silk! goes beyond the social deduction and discussion and you almost feel like you will need to land the plane if you’re left alone. Like you’ll actually lose something if your character dies of poison. It’s nail biting stuff, and it’s that captivating theme and engagement that we loved.”
“An excellent game with quick and intense gameplay, Hit the Silk! puts a new spin on hidden roles and social deduction games. With many interesting player interactions each turn, bluff and scheme your way to the great escape! You’ll love it!”
