Be the danger as you take the role of a drug lord selling Blue Sky. Or play as DEA get those rocks off the streets… Sorry, I meant minerals.

Breaking Bad is a competitive card game set in the critically acclaimed TV series, Breaking Bad.

Each player assumes the position as of one of the 4 factions: DEA, Heisenberg, Los Pollos Hermanos or Juarez Cartel. Criminals recruit Chemists to run the Labs and produce Blue Sky while the DEA can perform Raids to shut the Lab down. Each faction can win by being the last remaining player. Alternately, the criminal factions can win by producing enough Blue Sky to secure victory and the DEA can win by shutting down each all of the meth labs.

What I like about Breaking Bad is the alternate win conditions being different for the DEA. Each player is still in competition with every other player, but the DEA is in more competition with the other players.  It adds a neat level of gameplay where, as the DEA starts shutting down Labs, it becomes harder for all the other players. So do the criminals form an uneasy alliance to attempt to eliminate the DEA player? They’ll have to watch their back to make sure they don’t get sneak attacked from their supposed friends.
