What is this project all about?

Politics – the most important part of politics: distribution of money ;-)

Convince the president that you are loyal – as long as the payment is okay. Or become president and try to satisfy your ministers.

Tiefe Taschen is a negotiation game for 4 to 8 players.
The rules are available under

A Print&Play-version can be found under


  • 8 wooden private investigators
  • 16 wooden bribe markers
  • 40 action cards
  • 80 money cards

Cards and box are illustrated by Christian Opperer.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

You are looking for a game for bigger groups (up to eight players).
Tiefe Taschen is explained and learned within a few minutes. If you like social interaction and lively discussions you will feel right at home.
To be a successful politician you will need alliances of convenience. Sometimes you might not remember your promises.
You will get to bribe and threaten the other players, and sometimes even to protect yourself.
There is no downtime, since everybody is playing at the same time.

Why would you support this project?

Be part of the publishing of the first game of Fobs Games.
It's an entertaining game with simple rules but great depth.
The game challenges your diplomatic skills and your sense for favorable opportunities. You will get to know your fellow players' character, there might be one or two surprises.
