Usiak Games and Designs

Usiak Games and Designs is a indie board game publisher based out of Buffalo, NY. Their first game, SKEPTICS has been a joint effort of lead designer, Jonathan Usiak and assistant designer/editor, Brian Moats (West Virginia local). They will be selling First Edition copies of SKEPTICS as well as teasing the map for their 2024 SKEPTICS expansion.

SKEPTICS is a cooperative, dice rolling game, where players explore potentially haunted locations to prove the existence of ghosts. 1-4
players take on the role of Investigators gathering evidence of the paranormal.

Investigators race against the clock exploring rooms and rolling dice to match icon sets to Search, Reveal, and Solve Clues. Each Clue will lead Investigators one step closer to revealing the Ghost. Environment Cards are drawn every hour, which may have hazards and conditions that will impede the Investigators’ progress. Investigators win if the existence of the Ghost can be proven in time, but Investigators fail if time runs out.
